Natural doesn't make if automatically safe. Unless there are studies showing something via IV is safe and effective no doctor who wants to keep their license is going to attempt it and I wouldn't blame them.

Good question Spring. Maybe it's because IV's are not natural anyways? More likely because there is more financial incentive in studying and developing new RX drugs. But if you think of it, many of our medications originated from a natural source (PCN and Nystatin come to mind).

I've heard of some place that does colloidal silver as an IV. I don't think it cured anyone, though.
I did hydrogen peroxide IVs & it didn't help. I also got IVs from the Fibromyalgia & Fatigue Center. They put all kinds of stuff in IVs but they didn't help me.
Maybe it's just not that effective to do IVs for something that can hide in various parts of the body such as the bone marrow, brain, in between cells, etc...?

- Not everything can be used as an IV. And not all natural methods will adequately treat lyme or other tick-borne infections.
Some LL NDs use IV Garlic. It's been use in China for a very long time. But, they use it as part of a program that varies according to each patient. IV Garlic can be caustic to some people's veins so it's not as easy as it sounds.
Most MDs are not educated in methods other than pharmaceutical. It's not so easy as just doing this or that, years of study has to go into this and it has to be something very specific to address spirochetal infection while keeping the patient safe.
Not all natural methods are effective to the degree required with tick-borne infections. And not all natural methods are all that easy on a patient, either.
Find a good, experienced ILADS-educated LL ND (naturopathic doctor). That's the only way you will have someone both educated and also licensed to treat with these methods.
In all fairness, you cannot expect an MD to treat with a style requiring four years of training that is very different from the four years in medical school. The use of natural medicine is very complex and it is not so black and white.
Many NDs use some pharmaceuticals, just as many MDs incorporate some nutritional supplements &/or herb formulas. Good medicine is what works best - and best administered by those with extensive training in the methods they use.
Sometimes, too, a gentle approach can be as effective as a IV. Working smarter when harder doesn't work sort of thing. Knowing all about the spirochete - all the stages, forms, cycles & biofilm - is the first order of business. That step is often overlooked. -

I've done IV Glutathione. Did not notice any difference though.
I am now, however, craving ice cream.

And later I was wondering what I could eat that looked like ice cream, smelled like ice cream and tasted like it.. but wasn't full of sugar.
Pshaw. Such simple problems.
1. Reuse dishes. 2. Sugar-free Ice Cream!

Many "natural" treatments go through our digestive systems first before getting further into the body.
This can change the structure and function of what is being used. To put something directly into the blood is extremely different and possibly may do more harm than good, or do nothing.
