I have come across some really great information about Vitamin C IV drips and how they are great for diseases, especially lyme. I used to live in Connecticut and downstate NY, but now I'm upstate (Central NY, more west), and need to find a practitioner that does IV Vit C infusions and also Glutathione as well. I'm having a VERY hard time finding any practitioners in the Tompkins County area.....might anyone have any suggestions? Medical treatment was much more readily available when I was in the "hub" of NYC/etc, but now that I'm up in the sticks shall we say, these things are so hard to come by and I'm very sick. I appreciate any input and feedback you might have.
Also, if you've had any success with this type of therapy, and how much/often you've done it.
Also, if you've done it while on antibiotic therapy at the same time.

Thanks all you lovely lymies!!!

Naturebabe: Most doctors that do IV therapy are members of ACAM, American College of Advanced Medicine. Their web site is www.acam.org . There is a physican finder link on there. I did 30 grams of Vit C with glutathione., twice weekly for a year and felt MUCH better.  D

I got huge doses of vit. c in a drip with my port at the clinic and also they have had me on huge amounts of it in powder and piolls foms. Think I am doing around 3,000 mg a day now.
2004 in Martha's Vineyard me and my two daughters then 11 mos and 6 all got Lyme Disease. This was only known to us because we found the tiny ticks on us and we got very ill. My dog also got lyme and he went lame.
We have fought it for 4 years to no avail.
We all got it again this summer is Texas.
I am now in treatment in Scottsdale Arizona at Envita.

Naturebabe- Dowa is right. ACAM will point you in the right direction in finding a doctor for IV therapy.

However, my experience was not as good as Dowa's. I did 6 months of 30 g of vitamin c IVs and glutathione 2-3 times per week without results.

There were people where I went that did feel better from having the vitamin c IVs- including one who's cancer went away. She was also doing chemo. treatment at the same time.

Thanks for responding Wilsonx. I appreciate it. I am sorry to hear that all of your valiant efforts with the C and Glutathione didn't provide the results you were looking for. I know how that can be-trying method after method, $ after $, and sometimes things that work for other's don't work for us. That's the roll of the dice for all of us! I did RIFE treatment and didn't get anything from it, after all that time and $ spent. argh.

I looked up the ACAM website (thank you all for letting me know about this!) and only found one practitioner within a 2 hour radius of me. I am going to call this morning and keep my finger's crossed!!!! There must be some kind of good light at the end of the long tunnel, on earth I mean. LOL. I am glad to hear that your friend found treatment with the chemo/vit c IV's. It's always nice to hear good news!! Best of health to you!
