Why I Don’t Do Vitamin Drips Anymore

Why I Don’t Do Vitamin Drips Anymore

Vitamin drips have become a recent trendy craze. I see infusion centers popping up all over the city. Some of these are giant corporate conglomerates with centers in practically every city in the country.

For some reason, people now believe these infusion treatments will cure what’s ailing them, from a common hangover to jet lag.

After having done these drips for my patients for over 15 years, I have to say, I’ve never been impressed that they do very much, beyond some IV fluid and a big dose of PLACEBO.

I’ve been to many infusion conferences and workshops touting the benefits of the various ingredients. I have read books on the topic and have lists of protocols designed for various conditions and ailments.

In all my years of experience in administering these infusions and even receiving them myself, I was never impressed that they did anything.

One of the biggest fallacies out there about infusions is vitamin C. I have written about this in previous newsletters. To be brief, vitamin C as an infusion DOES NOT EXIST, PERIOD.

There is no such thing as intravenous vitamin C. What is being used as vitamin C is ascorbic acid. Ascorbic acid is NOT vitamin C. It is not even a vitamin. It’s a sugar molecule, and it is toxic to intracellular mitochondria. In other words, it will damage your cells.

The only patients I will give intravenous ascorbic acid to are cancer patients, because the toxic cellular attributes can help kill cancer cells. I would never recommend it to a healthy person as a “health enhancing“ infusion. Infusion centers that are administering ascorbic acid intravenously don’t understand what they are doing.


If you want to spend some of your hard-earned cash on wellness, I strongly recommend getting an ozone treatment. Ozone is far more eective in health enhancement than any vitamin infusion. This is the primary reason I have steered away from vitamin drips; because I administer ozone and find it to be far more beneficial for whatever ails a person.

Ozone is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, boosts the immune system, helps circulation, supports heart function, brain function, kidney and liver functions. At high dose there is a stem release from the bone marrow, resulting in an “anti-aging eect”.

I have successfully used ozone to treat everything from the common cold, herpes, shingles, chronic Lyme, Covid, post-Covid, breast cancer, torn rotator cu, arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, autoimmune disease, Epstein Barr virus, and more.

I have been so impressed with the results from ozone infusions that if a patient asks me about an IV infusion, I recommend an ozone treatment.

Ozone is safe, and eective. It has been in continuous use for over 100 years for hundreds of thousands of patients all over the world.  Unfortunately, in our country it is not FDA approved and therefore not allowed in hospitals. It is frowned upon by our conservative traditional medical establishment primarily because it is ‘non pharmaceutical’.

I have been administering ozone therapy to my patients since 2009. In all of my years of medical experience dating back to 1978, including over 20 years of ER experience, I have never seen anything so effective and so dramatic for so many health conditions as ozone therapy.

Watch my YouTube videos and let us know if you have any questions.  Or just call the office to schedule your ozone treatment and see the benefits for yourself.

I think you will agree with me that it is far better than a vitamin infusion.  Don’t waste your money on infusions when ozone is available.

All the best in radiant health,
