Dr Chan and Dr Ward administer a variety of intravenous therapies. These include naturopathic treatments such as ozone therapy, ultraviolet blood irradiation, IV nutrient therapy (such as vitamin C, or glutathione), as well as intravenous antibiotic therapy for selected cases of lyme disease.
Chelation therapy is an alternative treatment for various circulatory disorders, including atherosclerosis (fatty deposits on the arteries), and heart disease. We have used both the traditional ACAM (American College for Advancement in Medicine) protocol of a 1.5-3 hour drip to attempt to reduce calcium scores (and heavy metals) in cardiac patients, and as published in the TACT trial (trial to assess chelation therapy); as well as in cases of heavy metal toxicity, the more rapid administration of a different form of calcium EDTA.
Phosphatidyl choline is a treatment used in conjunction with traditional chelation therapy in some patients. In a study at Baxamed Medical Center in Switzerland, 20 patients with heart disease and re-occurring angina completed an average of 30 treatments, and 19 out of 20 were completely free of symptoms and medication. Likely, though not clear, this was a single component of a multi-faceted approach including diet, exercise, etc.
Intravenous Micronutrient Therapy is a high dose method of using vitamins and minerals, for the purposes of stimulating the body's own healing systems by providing proper nutrition at the cellular level. A generic name for such a therapy is the Myer's cocktail. This therapy bypasses gastrointestinal absorption problems, but more importantly, is able to achieve an extremely high blood concentration of nutrients beyond what is orally possible. This high concentration makes it a down-hill process for cellular absorption, and thus "sick" cells are postulated to be able to absorb nutrients necessary for function and healing. By reading the Myer's article link, you will find that even in the example of congestive heart failure, diseased heart muscle compared to healthy heart muscle had 1/3rd the amount of intracellular magnesium.
Ozone Therapy is one of the oxidative treatment modalities. Research has been published by a variety of authors but accessible articles on the internet include those written by Dr Bocci in Italy. Major autohemotherapy is a technique in which blood is treated with ozone and then re-infused with the goal of stimulating both oxygen delivery as well a cytokine stimulation / balancing.
