Major burns, acute kidney injuries, or even those who have a chronic alcohol use disorder can benefit from IV therapy. How do you know you have enough nutrients? Our food is not what it used to be. With the onslaught of toxic chemicals, GMO's, and depleted [...]
Mitochondria are 1.45 to 1.8 billion years old according to fossil records (1). Through the years of evolution, they ended up in most of our cells. Mitochondria are intracellular organelles and like energy factories, like batteries, they use nutrients from our food and oxygen to create energy to support life. Mitochondria appear like a separate cell, within our cells, and they even has their own set of DNA (mtDNA) which we inherit only from our mother. Mitochondria exist in different numbers in different cell lines. The highest being the heart where 40% of each heart muscle cell by volume [...]

Better tasting, better smelling, and healthier water is what you get when you filter out chemical (e.g., chlorine/ lead) and bacterial contaminants from the water you drink or use for bathing.

Toxins in the body are known to be part of the underlying cause of the following conditions. Ever wonder if you are toxic? Take the Toxicity Questionnaire and [...]
