Has anyone taken IV Glutathione? My LLMD wants me to do them a few times per week. I don't have a PICC so it would just be peripheral. I am allergic to Sulfa and just read somewhere that you shouldn't have Glutathione if you are allergic to Sulfa?

Also, I am in a different state than my LLMD so I will have to ask my nurse friends to come over and put the IV in. Has anyone done this?

I have never heard that about sulfa and glutathione. Maybe someone else has.

In the past, I have done frequent infusions of glutathione. At one point I was doing them a few times per week with a peripheral, as you have been instructed to do.

When I was doing them several times per week, I became very toxic. I have never understood that. But my doc informed me recently that glutathione breaks up biofilms and I was releasing the pathogens. That is why I got more toxic instead of less.

This may be something to watch out for, if your pathogen load is high, and you are not doing enough antimicrobials. Otherwise, it should help you.

Good luck.

I've done them and I love them.

Mine were peripheral also. I mixed it in a saline bag and administered as per my docs instructions.

Really did help the healing process.

Have you tried liposomal glutathione? It is quite sulfur-y.

Perhaps your doc has a non-sulfur glutathione.

I can't say for the liquid IV kind, but the oral for sure has a lot of sulfur.

I would be wary to do any IV med with a component I may be allergic to.

But again, maybe your doc has a non-sulfur glutathione for you.

If so, then I would totally recommend trying it.

GretaM: I didn't realize that there was a non-sulfur glutathione. I

will have to call him to see if sulfa allergy is an issue. I'm also a little

nervous about taking it. It seems like it can cause some severe

reactions in some people, of course, I only see the worst of the

worst symptoms. I'm glad to know it helped you.

I'll chime in here even though I am not talking

about IV Glutathione- we use primitive sprouts (I

know - sounds lame but it is not) for cheap

glutathione boosting. I was talking to Dr. Fahey

yesterday who is the developer. He is very

knowledgeable and helpful. It is also a good way

to get selenium.

They are running a special now so I bought 12

bottles. The first two weeks loading dose you

have to chew 10 in the morning and then 5 for

before lunch, 5 for before dinner and 5 before

bed.

http://faheypharms.com/

Dr. Fahey is very interesting. He was in Russia

for 4 years to help people with radiation

poisoning after Chernobyl nuclear accident. Has

treated literally thousands of people.

We all know glutathione gets destroyed in the

stomach-- so this does not work like that. It is

a precursor to make glutathione. It is called

Beauty GP.
