Also known as ‘Major Autohemotherapy’ (MAH), IV ozone is a natural and effective treatment that uses medical ozone gas to promote a therapeutic effect in the body and often used to treat medical conditions. Ozone therapy plays a major role in boosting the immune system and improving general wellbeing.
Ozone is a very active and reactive form of oxygen that helps oxygenate the cells, enhance blood circulation and activate cell regeneration. It is known for its antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal effects that help treat infections and detoxify the body to clear and eliminate toxins. Ozone therapy has been used to assist with pain relief, cold sores, muscular spasms, migraines, inflammation and more.
The Treatment Process:
When administering this treatment, we draw 50-100 ml of blood into a closed chamber system. Medical grade ozone is then introduced into the chamber “closed circuit”, meaning no human interference, which is then mixed with the client’s blood for a few minutes. The ozonated blood is then reintroduced into the body intravenously.
The treatment takes an average of 25 minutes and a minimum of six sessions is recommended to achieve maximum wellness benefits.
The name chelation comes from the Greek ‘chele’, meaning claw, which refers to the ‘claw-like’ structure of the organic chemical ethylene diamine tetra-acetic (EDTA), the most universally used substance for this process.
Chelation therapy is a procedure that removes substances such as heavy metals from the body through administration of chelating agents intravenously. EDTA is a man-made amino acid, which has a particular affinity for toxic metals such as mercury, cadmium, aluminium and lead. If EDTA meets with these substances through an intravenous infusion, they are ‘grabbed’ and then secreted in bodily wastes.
A chelation therapy program is created for the client based on a consultation to determine the levels of heavy metals present in the body.
Intravenous (IV) laser blood irradiation therapy is an alternative medical procedure that exposes the clients’ blood to low-level light. A special intravenous catheter assists in exposing small amounts of flowing blood to different wavelengths of low-level laser energy.
At The Elixir Clinic, we offer red, blue and yellow lasers light which is prescribed by a registered practitioner upon a detailed medical consultation. The usage of one color or the other, or even combining the three colors will be determined based on an overall treatment program.
aPDT – Antimicrobial Photodynamic Therapy was discovered at the beginning of the 20th century. It is based on the stimulation of a light-sensitive substance (photosensitizer) which is infused into the bloodstream, injected locally or taken orally. The photosensitizer binds with high specificity to pathologically changed tissue. When stimulated by the laser light, active oxygen radicals form and destroy this tissue without harming the surrounding healthy tissue.
This form of therapy helps enhance energy levels, improves blood circulation and has anti-inflammatory effects that may improve the immunologic activity of the blood. In addition, it is known to have antibacterial and antiviral effects.
Photodynamic therapy is combined with an IV infusion by introducing the VitaDrip® after administering a photosensitizer; most commonly curcumin oral supplement. A series of 6-15 photodynamic therapy sessions will be carried out either every day or three times a week with a weekend break; the treatment program varies depending on the clients’ needs.
