IV Therapy

     Dr Honeyman currently provides 3 types of intravenous nutrient protocols. We also keep injectable vitamin B12 and B-complex in stock for B12 shots.

     Intravenous vitamin C can be part of a cancer treatment regimen. High doses of 25 to 100 grams of vitamin C are given twice a week for the duration of cancer care. These IV’s take 1 to 2 hours depending on the dose. Vitamin C is mixed in sterile water because the final solution is fairly concentrated. During the IV patients will need to drink water and eat a snack or two because blood sugar drops during this treatment.

     Meyer’s cocktail is a mixture of minerals and vitamins given as an IV push or in an IV bag with vitamin C over 30 to 60 minutes. Meyer’s cocktail can be useful for nutrient deficiency, asthma, fatigue, muscle pain. Some clinics provide Meyer’s cocktail every 6 weeks to all patients under care for chronic illness.

Cell membrane therapy IV is glutathione and phosphatidyl choline given as an IV push. These are quite useful for chronic neurological illnesses, for chronic fatigue or pain, and for rapid removal of toxic chemicals. Cell membrane therapy is given weekly for 4 to 8 weeks. (Note: IV phosphatidyl choline has become unavailable recently)

     Please note, due to nuances of Oregon law, ND’s are licensed to provide injectible nutrients and IV therapies, but these services cannot be billed to insurance.
