Our body is constantly fighting the insult caused by toxins and chemicals that we are exposed to through the environment, our diets, our personal care products and the overall lifestyles that we live. Unfortunately these toxins will accelerate the aging process; increase our vulnerability toward sickness, and will disrupt our bodies ability to function optimally. Glutathione has been a remarkable treatment for many patients helping with an array of challenging health symptoms. Our body may create various substances to help counteract the effects of these harmful toxins. One of the most potent substance our body produces to neutralize these toxins is Glutathione or GSH. The effects of glutathione as the body’s defender are generally unparalleled. When our levels of GHS are depleted, there is an increased susceptibility to chronic illness, and the level of glutathione complex within our bodies serves as an indicator to reflect overall health and may well effect longevity and quality of life. Within the human body, there are three critical functions of glutathione: Acts as an immune system booster It aids in systemic detoxification (we have had excellent results with Levaquin and Ciprofloxacin toxicity). 3. Is a master antioxidant and can help many neurological disorder symptoms Glutathione has the ability to naturally shield our body from the long-term dangers posed by dangerous disease causing free radicals, while simultaneously removing hazardous waste and toxins from our body. So maximizing Glutathione levels seems to be of critical importance, however our body’s ability to produce GHS decreases incrementally as we age. The benefits of Glutathione to the body cannot be questioned. It is called the Master Antioxidant because it helps boost the immune system as it removes excess free radicals thus gives resistance in fighting common diseases and even cancer. Intravenous administration of Glutathione has demonstrated numerous beneficial roles including the maximization of a powerful anti-oxidant, binding of toxins that accumulate in the body like mercury and lead, and it aids in rapid expulsion through the urine and feces. Ironically, what has made Glutathione famous lately is its positive side effects on the skin. Glutathione when given intravenously can lighten the skin, reduce acne, age spots and other skin blemishes — resulting in more radiant and youthful looking skin. Truly a no downtime procedure, injectable glutathione only takes 30 minutes or less to perform and you can go back to your usual activities after the session. The effects of injectable glutathione are a lot faster compared to the oral one. The procedure is relatively simple and involves injection of pure injectable glutathione directly into your system via the intravenous route. Each session takes about 30 minutes or less, and there is no downtime. To achieve maximum results, Glutathione should be administered at one or two week intervals, although some request it be performed every 3 days to speed the results. For skin result we recommend at least 7 to 10 sessions to achieve optimal results and neurological symptoms require a longer duration. Antibiotic toxicity usually requires 3-7 treatments. Benefits of Glutathione on Neurologic Disorders: Intravenous administration of Glutathione has demonstrated numerous beneficial roles associated with its amazingly powerful anti-oxidant properties. We now know that one of the most prominent features in Parkinson’s Disease or most neurologic disorders is the destruction of neurons by free radicals. Glutathione has helped pt's with early symtoms of parkinsons and related disorders. So using Glutathione to neutralize and reduce these free-radicals has been shown by Dr. Perlmutter (famous integrative neurologist) to have significant benefits in managing neurologic conditions associated with inflammatory disease processes promoted by excessive free radical activity. The primary role of glutathione is not necessarily in preventing symptoms, but in slowing the disease by limiting free radical activity. Glutathione is also a great additon to Myers cocktials and chelating agents. Since the body manufactures this substance side effects are rare. Glutathione like all nutrient I.V.'s are considered experimental and not approved by teh FDA for specific medical conditions. We also have glutathione cream, most oral supplements are very poorly absorbed so they are often ineffective or minimally so in most cases.
