Infusion Therapy: 3rd Element of the Integrated Eye Therapy
The injection of a certain amount of liquid into the vein is called an infusion. Additional vitamin and mineral infusions supply the body with vital, healthy micronutrients. This becomes necessary because many of our patients have to take various strong medication.
These medications can stress and weaken the liver in particular, but also other organs. In addition, the body has a higher basal metabolic rate of vitamins and minerals in case of illness, which we often cannot sufficiently absorb through our diet.
The liver plays an important role in the treatment of eye diseases. In addition to its metabolic tasks, it is a vital detoxification organ. Toxic substances are regularly produced as part of the metabolism. The liver transforms these into harmless substances. Alcohol is also rendered harmless by it. The liver also filters old or defective cells and bacteria from the blood.
If the liver is too heavily stressed, e.g. by medication, hard-to-digest food, etc., it tends to no longer perform its task properly. Therefore, we support the liver in its functions during the eye therapy. Based on the patient’s medical history and current laboratory results (blood test), we are able to put together customized infusions with the appropriate combination of effective components for you.
