Intravenous Nutrient Infusion Therapy at Health and Vitality Center – Los Angeles
People are talking quite a bit about the nutritional supplement MSM (methylsulfonylmethane). MSM has become very popular these days, and for good reason: it has helped many people with arthritis and other musculoskeletal problems, and appears to be much more effective than the familiar natural medicine treatments glucosamine and chondroitin. At the Health and Vitality Center, a Los Angeles wellness clinic headed by holistic doctor Shiva Lalezar, we have seen excellent results with intravenous MSM in a variety of health conditions.
What is MSM?
MSM is a naturally-occurring, organic sulfur-containing molecule. It can be found in foods like milk, coffee, tea, and tomatoes.
The biological function of MSM is to supply the sulfur required to make the amino acids cysteine and methionine – both of which are extremely important to your body. When your body synthesizes proteins (which are made up of amino acids), methionine is almost always the first amino acid in the sequence. Proteins also must fold in specific ways in order for them to be biologically useful and active. Cysteine is crucial to the three-dimensional structure of proteins, ensuring that proteins fold properly.
How does IV MSM work?
MSM has two important properties:
Because so many diseases are caused by, or exacerbated by, the processes of inflammation and/or oxidation, using IV MSM as a treatment makes a great deal of sense!
What are some of the medical conditions that may be helped with IV MSM treatment?
Intravenous MSM therapy is mainly used in muscle and joint disorders, including:
IV MSM may also be useful in treating allergic rhinitis (commonly called hay fever). Clinical studies show MSM reduces binding of LDL (bad cholesterol) to blood vessels, suggesting that its anti-inflammatory action may help protect against heart disease.
How is the IV MSM treatment administered?
You will receive your intravenous MSM infusion in our relaxing, comfortable IV therapy room. You can read a book, listen to music, or even work on your laptop computer while you are being treated.
