Lauded as an international pioneer in the field of anti-aging, Dr. Salerno’s techniques have been proven to slow the aging process and encourage a healthy and vitality-filled life for his patients through natural treatments.
Dr. Salerno is well known for his vitamin IVs, weight-loss treatments, and chelation therapy. He is the author of two books, Fight Fat with Fat and Salerno Solutions, which are both available on his website, www.SalernoCenter.com. Today we are going to talk about a very important topic:
IV Therapy for Autoimmune Disorders
RC: Hello Dr. Salerno, how are you today?
Dr. John Salerno: Thanks, how are you? Thanks for having me.
RC: I’m great, thanks for joining me. Can you please describe how IV therapy works?
Dr. John Salerno: Yes. For autoimmunity, and for others, we have 31 different protocols here, IV protocols. It directs the nutrients directly into the bloodstream so that patients, particularly those that have poor absorption with taking things orally, it will get directly to the target organs by IV.
RC: What are some autoimmune disorders that IV therapy helps treat?
Dr. John Salerno: Well, we particularly here at the Salerno Center treat things like rheumatoid arthritis. We’ll look at things like MS and treat, and antibodies to thyroid, or autoimmune thyroiditis, as we call it.
RC: Are there different IV therapy protocols for different disorders?
Dr. John Salerno: Yes. For different autoimmune disorders, we will target the IVs accordingly. So for example, for rheumatoid or arthritis conditions associated with autoimmunity, we’ll add things like MSM and glucosamine to help with joints and for inflammation. And for thyroid autoimmunity, we will use more of a detox protocol as autoimmune disorders and heavy metals and pesticides are synonymous, meaning pesticides and heavy metals can affect patients’ response or autoimmune responses.
RC: What is an IV therapy session like for a patient?
Dr. John Salerno: Patient would generally sit for a little over an hour, getting infused with a small needle in their arm with vitamins and nutrients that again go directly into the bloodstream and bypass the liver. They’re directed directly into our body’s cells.
RC: How quickly does a patient feel the effects of the therapy?
Dr. John Salerno: They generally feel it very rapidly, such that by the time patient’s done with the IVs they will feel the effects that particularly if we’re trying to use the IVs for energy and/or anxiety, as I said, we have 31 different protocols. So it depends on the specific treatments.
RC: Well thank you so much, Dr. Salerno. We know you’re extremely busy, so I just want to thank you for your time and your help today.
