Types of IV Therapy: Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) 

Types of IV Therapy: Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) 

Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) Antioxidant IV Therapy Clinic

Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a powerful antioxidant that naturally occurs in potatoes, spinach, broccoli, and yeast and is also found in the kidneys and liver. Synthetic ALA can also be formulated in labs for medicinal purposes. 

Alpha-lipoic acid IV therapy can produce effective outcomes for patients suffering from diabetes, and can provide relief from nerve related symptoms of diabetes, such as numbness, pain, and burning in the arms and legs.  

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides alpha-lipoic acid IV therapy to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.  

How does it work? 

ALA is known to help in the prevention of some types of cellular damage in the body. It also assists in the restoration of vitamin levels, such as vitamin C and vitamin E. Research has shown that alpha-lipoic acid can promote the function of neurons in diabetics.  

The body uses ALA to break down carbs and generate energy for various body organs. In its role as an antioxidant, ALA works to protect the brain under conditions of injury or damage. Certain liver diseases can also improve because of the antioxidant effects of this chemical. 

Potential Benefits  

Anti-Aging Effects for the Skin 

Researchers have indicated that alpha-lipoic acid med spa therapy can help improve fine lines and reduce roughness in the skin that may have occurred due to sun damage. In combination with other treatments, ALA intravenous therapy may also improve skin elasticity, and make your skin appear smoother and more youthful.  

Improving Blood Flow after Surgery 

IV therapy with alpha-lipoic acid can possibly reduce complications from a surgical procedure because it helps improve blood flow. The therapy may have to be taken for up to several weeks prior to the surgery as well as after the surgery for best results.  

Reducing Symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes  

Alpha-lipoic acid IV therapy can improve the levels of blood sugar in type 2 diabetes patients. Some patients may benefit more than others, which will depend on how long the patient has been suffering from diabetes, whether they are taking anti-diabetes drugs, and more importantly, the purity of the ALA therapy.  

Relief from Nerve Pain Related to Diabetes 

A dose of 600 to 1800 mg of ALA through IV may improve diabetic neuropathy symptoms, such as pain, numbness, and burning sensation in the arms and legs. The treatment may be required for at least three to five weeks to see improvement. Lower doses of ALA or oral treatment are not likely to work. 

Interstitial Cystitis (Painful Bladder Syndrome) 

Women may suffer from pelvic pain due to bladder inflammation. Alpha-lipoic acid IV therapy along with certain other minerals, vitamins and fats could help reduce pelvic pain.  

In some cases, this med spa therapy is known to improve body weight in people who suffer from obesity or overweight. Early research also indicates that ALA therapy in conjunction with some other drugs could help alleviate symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.  

Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for alpha-lipoic acid IV therapy.

Types of IV Therapy: High Dose Vitamin C 

High Dose Vitamin C IV Therapy Clinic

L –ascorbic acid or vitamin C is a vital ingredient that your body needs every day through food or dietary supplements because it does not get naturally produced in the body. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that helps to combat and prevent oxidative stress. The nutrient also works with enzymes to promote natural collagen formation for more youthful looking skin.  

Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides high dose vitamin C IV therapy to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.  

Benefits of Vitamin C in High Doses 

Compared to oral intake of vitamin C supplements, you can achieve much higher levels of vitamin C in your blood if you take it through IV (intravenous) infusion. Research indicates that higher levels of this vitamin may have numerous health benefits, and may even cause the destruction of cancer cells in the body.  

Deficiency of vitamin C in your daily diet over a period of time may lead to scurvy, which is disease marked by lethargy, weakness, bleeding, and easy bruising. Patients with scurvy also suffer from collagen depletion in the deeper skin layers.  

High dose vitamin C infusion through med spa IV therapy can restore the healthy levels quickly in your body, trigger fresh collagen production, and make you look and feel healthy, energized, and more youthful.  

Fighting Cancer with High Dose Vitamin C Therapy 

Over the last 50 years, researchers have studied the benefits of high dose vitamin C therapy given intravenously for cancer patients. Nobel prize winning chemists and doctors researched the potential benefits of IV therapy with vitamin C in clinical trials involving patients of cancer.  

Surveys of medical professionals as well as their research papers and arguments put forward at various healthcare conferences in recent years have also indicated that high dose IV based vitamin C therapy may be useful for the treatment of some types of cancer, including breast cancer. In addition, it is a commonly used therapy to treat infections and fatigue.  

Scientists have indicated several decades ago in their research that cancer is a diseases associated with changes in the connective tissue that occur because of deficiency of vitamin C. Researchers proposed in the 1970s that high doses of ascorbic acid can help you build immunity to infection or disease, and possibly treat cancer. 

Lab Studies Related to Vitamin C Therapy 

A number of laboratory studies have been conducted to determine whether high dose IV med spa therapy of vitamin C can be useful in combating or preventing cancer and other diseases. The disease fighting effects of vitamin C involve a chemical reaction that produces hydrogen peroxide, which could kill diseased cells or even malignant cells.  

Laboratory studies have also shown that:  

  • Treatment with high dose vitamin C intravenous therapy can slow the growth of diseased cells or malignant cells in the liver, colon, pancreas, and prostate.  
  • Combination of vitamin C in high doses with some other types of drugs can produce successful results in the treatment various complex diseases and cancers.  

Motykie Medical Spa receives patients from Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and nearby areas for high dose vitamin C IV therapy.
