Why are dietary supplements so often necessary if I eat well?
We are not living on the same planet our grandparents were. Man-made chemicals have polluted our air, water, soil, and even our food. These toxins, unchecked, have the ability to change the normal functions of our cells. Glutathione, for example, is a naturally occurring antioxidant in the body; it is a stable and abundant antioxidant that helps to defend the body against toxicity and free radical damage, but it also repairs other antioxidants too. Glutathione is found throughout the body and is plentiful in the liver—the liver is the powerhouse for detoxification in the body. Unfortunately, increasing toxic exposures without adequate nutritional antioxidants from the diet results in depleting stores of glutathione and other antioxidants. Bioactive nutrients needed to mitigate the risk of toxic burden and free radical damage in the body are either insufficient or completely lacking in the Western diet. This is where supplementing comes in: taking the necessary supplements helps to support your health by providing you with the adequate doses of important nutrients that will neutralize toxins and free radicals.
Does Dr. Gaynor use intravenous infusions for conditions other than cancer?
Dr. Gaynor does a thorough evaluation that includes the following: (1) a physical exam and (2) blood work to test for inflammation, prediabetes, endocrine parameters, heavy metal toxicity, cancer, and immune function. He then develops a specific individualized plan for each patient. Intravenous treatment may or may not be indicated for any given patient.
