Intravenous Vitamin C (IVC)
Vitamin is an essential antioxidant that plays a vital role in many systems of the body including regulating fat metabolism, collagen synthesis, and the immune system. Oral tolerance of vitamin C is limited and therefore to get high enough plasma levels to have profound effects on the immune system, intravenous administration is required.
Here at SCHI, we use IVC to augment the immune system to combat infections due to viruses and bacteria, cancerous tumors, autoimmune diseases, and inflammation. We offer both Low-Dose IVC (LDIVC) and High-Dose IVC (HDIVC). Each work differently as the LDIVC acts as a cell-support and protective antioxidant while HDIVC is oxidative and acts as a pro-drug and is mainly used in severe disease conditions.
Low-Dose IVC (LDIVC) for Immunity Support and Antioxidant:
LDIVC is 8.0 grams of Vitamin C given intravenously as a “push” as opposed to a long "drip" over a short period of time, typically 10 to 15 minutes.
The cost of LDIVC will be $125 (Q980.00) for each 8.0 g LDIVC. There is an additional fee for the short evaluation with one of our providers due at your first visit/IV. The cost of this appointment will $75 (Q600.00). Please ask our staff for details.
