Today, I want to talk to you about my patient D.B. A key treatment I offer at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine turned her life around and boosted her chances of recovering from cancer.
D.B had been a vivacious 47-year-old woman, who’d always led a healthy life. For years, she’d watched her diet carefully and exercised regularly.
But then she was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. This is cancer of the inner lining of the uterus. When she came to my clinic, she’d already undergone a hysterectomy and chemotherapy.
Unsurprisingly, she felt terrible. She was pale. She felt lethargic and she was experiencing severe mental fog.
Every moment of her life had become a struggle.
It was clear right away that D.B. was deficient in several important nutrients. It was also clear her immune system was shattered.
So the first thing I did was confirm D.B.’s nutrient deficiencies with a blood test. These deficiencies not only made her feel awful, but they severely hampered her chances of recovery from cancer.
If you’re recovering from cancer or any other chronic disease, nothing is more important than keeping your immune system strong so your body can stay strong and fight the effects of the disease.
You see, you were born with all the defenses your body will ever need — and if you keep them strong, you never have to worry about ANY disease.
The problem is that chemotherapy targets rapidly dividing cells, which cancer cells are. But so are many of the normal cells in your blood, bone marrow, mouth and other parts of your body — and chemotherapy damages them, too.
Chemotherapy destroys cancer cells, because they can’t repair themselves very well. Your healthy cells typically can repair this damage — but your immune system has to be strong enough.
Chemo also damages the stems cells in your body that feeds your immune system.
Meanwhile, mainstream medicine had already prescribed D.B. a truckload of Big Pharma meds to treat her symptoms. But it was obvious these weren’t going to do the trick.
You see, having cancer and getting chemo often means your body can’t absorb enough nutrients from food. And without these nutrients, your immune system can’t recover from the effects of the chemo.
Even if you aren’t suffering from a chronic disease, your body’s ability to absorb healthy amounts of nutrients diminishes as you get older. So getting the right nutrient amounts from diet and even supplementation can be tough.
IV therapy meets these needs fast. It allows the nutrients to bypass your digestive process and go directly into your cells. And bioavailability from IV is 100%. i
That’s Why I Recommend D.B. Be Given a Myers’ Cocktail
Sears Institute – Royal Palm Beach, FL
A Myers’ cocktail typically contains a potent mix of magnesium, calcium, vitamin C and a B-vitamin complex. It’s specially designed to boost your immune system and restore your energy levels.
The treatment takes up to an hour, but probably less. This is one of several tailored IV micronutrient therapies we offer at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine. It’s also one of the most powerful.
I’ve found it to be great help for disorders like fibromyalgia, Lyme disease and chronic fatigue syndrome — as well as recovery from the effects of chemotherapy.
But here at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, we add another powerful ingredient into the Myers’ mix — glutathione. This is a vital protein, antioxidant and detoxifying agent.
After D.B’s IV session, she felt almost immediate improvement. Her brain fog lifted and her ability to focus returned. And her energy levels surged.
And she didn’t realize it at the time, but D.B.’s immune system also got a turbo boost, thanks to the ingredients in the Myers’ cocktail.
Just take a look at three of the most powerful ingredients of Myers’ cocktail. You can take these nutrients separately through diet and supplements. But they work better together. For optimal impact, I recommend taking higher dosages via IV therapy:
Glutathione: This is your body’s most potent antioxidant. I’ve been recommending ways to boost my patients’ glutathione levels for years to help them live long and well. It’s a critical part of your body’s natural mechanism for warding off disease.
The evidence of glutathione’s power is backed up in my own research and numerous scientific studies. Danish researchers compared people aged 100 to 105 with people aged 60 to 79 — and found the centenarians had much higher levels of glutathione. And those who were most active had the very highest levels.ii
Glutathione increases energy, fights illness, increases mental clarity, reduces body fat, and protects against age-related decline.iii You can also “cook up” glutathione in your cells if you have three necessary amino acids on board — glycine N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) and glutamic acid (glutamate). One easy way is to supplement with whey protein. But be sure to get pure whey from pasture-raised animals, so it’s free of toxins and hormones.
You can get the “reduced form” in a glutathione supplement. This is the only supplement form that’s absorbed by your cells.
Vitamin C: This powerful antioxidant is a powerful anti-cancer fighter, especially when given in high dosages.v And more than 18,000 studies in the PubMed database alone show health benefits of vitamin C.
Because humans do not manufacture vitamin C internally, you need to get it through dietary sources or supplements. But the daily intake of 60 mg recommended by mainstream medicine is not enough. Based on my own experience, I recommend 3,000 mg per day if you’re in good health and up to 20,000 mg in times of stress or sickness. But taking high dosages of vitamin can upset your stomach, which is why I recommend IV treatment.
Magnesium: Modern farming methods have pretty much eradicated magnesium from our soil. But this crucial element balances potassium, sodium and calcium — all of which supports a healthy immune system and prevents the chronic inflammation at the root of all chronic diseases.v In fact, getting enough magnesium can lower your risk of dying from any cause. A recent study on 4,203 people found that chances of dying are 10 times higher for those with the lowest levels of magnesium.vi
To supplement with magnesium alone, I recommend getting between 600 mg and 1,000 mg a day. Look for magnesium that is bound to citrate, malate or aspartate. Take it with vitamin B6. It will increase the amount of magnesium that accumulates in your cells.
Only good things can come from flooding your cells with essential vitamins and nutrients.
I recommend the Myers’ cocktail for several general complaints, but I also offer customized IV therapies to fight viruses and parasites, build lean muscle, revitalize your organs, increase vitality, and cleanse your body of environmental toxins.
