We pride ourselves on providing Edmonton butt kicking IV Therapy.
IV therapy is more effective than oral treatments with Vitamins for correcting nutrient deficits which gets patients feeling better, faster. We've given thousands of IV Therapy treatments at our clinic in Edmonton. It's a safe and effective way to improve many health conditions.
IV Therapy can often provide a breakthrough for patients where other treatments have failed especially with regards to energy, mood and immunity. We focus on IV therapy and have many unique formulas to address numerous health concerns.
IV Therapy is usually delivered relatively quickly and can have long term benefits. Many of the IVs our Naturopaths offer are administered initially once weekly with booster treatments given every 4-8 weeks. This is fairly standard for our energy or mood IV treatments.
IV Therapy is safe. Our Naturopathic doctors have administered literally thousands of IV therapies with negligible side effects. No serious adverse reactions have been encountered with approximately 5000 treatments. Dr.Muradov and Dr. Deol administer the IV treatments himself and patients are monitored frequently during treatment.

Our Top IV Therapies
IV NAD is a breakthrough in the treatment of fatigue. Our Naturopaths have seen tremendous results in the treatment of fatigue and low energy with intravenous NAD+ at our Edmonton office with great effect in notoriously stubborn conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia as well.
NAD+ is crucial in the production of energy in the body. It also activated SIRTUIN pathways which are key in life extension, aging and longevity. A 2019 study demonstrated that it is rapidly taken up by cells when NAD+ is given IV.
NAD IVs are usually given over about 1 hour and can be combined with IV Vitamins for an even bigger energy punch. They are extremely well tolerated with only some nausea if your NAD IV is given too quickly.
With IV NAD Therapy, most patients see improvements in their energy within 24 hours after a NAD IV however we have had patients that get a boost even before the IV is over.
If NAD is given for substance withdrawal, our Naturopaths usually add Vitamin B1, B3 and Vitamin C to the IV therapy treatment. Your Naturopath may suggest additional oral treatments if the goal is substance cessation depending on the drug involved. However, IV NAD Therapy for substance abuse is a lengthy process - it can take anywhere from 6-12 hours to administer up to 2000mg of NAD over 3-5 consecutive days.
IV Myers Cocktail
The Myers is the original Vitamin IV Therapy. Our Naturopaths have literally given thousands of Myers cocktail IVs to our Edmonton patients over the last 10 years most commonly for energy and mood boosting.
The Myers is an excellent broad spectrum IV giving a range of B-Vitamins, Magnesium, Calcium and Vitamin C. Our Naturopaths have their own formula called the "Advanced Myers" where we've ramped up the doses of B-Vitamins, and added Riboflavin (B2) for bigger effects on our patients looking for improvements in mood and energy and immunity.
The Myers IV is extremely well tolerated. Most patients remark that they can taste or smell the B Vitamins almost instantly and can often feel a sensation of heat during the IV (blood vessel dilating effects of the Magnesium).
The Myers IV usually gives its effects within 24 hours and the first IV often last for 3-5 days. However, after a few treatments the effect of the Myers is extended with patients usually getting a "booster" IV every 4 - 8 weeks.
The original Myers IV Therapy was suggested for the following conditions: fatigue, fibromyalgia, sinusitis, hives, asthma, migraines, upper respiratory tract infections, cardiovascular disease and depression and our Naturopaths have confirmed clinical effects in every single one of these conditions and many more.
Glutathione is the body's master anti-oxidant. lt's found throughout the body with the highest levels in the liver and it's made from glutamate, glycine and cysteine. In fact, we often give a form of cysteine called N-Acetyl-Cysteine in between Glutathione IVs to keep levels elevated. Our Naturopathic doctors have substantial experience with administration of Glutathione IV Therapy.
Glutathione IVs are often done for detoxification, skin health and neurological conditions like MS, ALS & Parkinson's. It's extremely well tolerated even at high doses (4000-6000mg). For skin health your Naturopath will usually combine Glutathione IV with Vitamin C. For neurological issues our Naturopaths usually give a pre-treatment IV with nutrients needed for Glutathione cycling like Selenium, Zinc, Vitamin C and Folic Acid.
Glutathione can often be added to the end of many IV therapies. If you want to try Glutathione as part of your IV treatment, just ask your TruMed Naturopath.
Administration times for glutathione IV is usually 5 to 15 minutes so it's fairly quick and Glutathione can be given between 1-3x weekly.
IV Vitamin C
Vitamin C is definitely a nutrient our Naturopaths use a lot of at our West Edmonton Clinic. We use Vitamin C IV Therapy in both low and high doses for immunity and anti-cancer activity respectively.
Low dose Vitamin C refers to doses between 2 - 15 grams which can be immune boosting, anti-viral and has an anti-oxidant effect. Low dose IV Vitamin C is also used by our Naturopaths for skin health in combination with Glutathione.
Interestingly, in 2010 data emerged from China that IV Vitamin C can be an adjunct in the treatment of COVID-19.
High dose Vitamin C refers to doses between 25 - 125 grams and is used almost exclusively at our Edmonton office for either chronic infections or cancer. There is much data on Vitamin C IV as an alternative cancer therapy. It can have a direct anti-cancer effect or can also be used to ease side effects of standard cancer therapies.
Case reports exists showing benefit for IV Vitamin C in: Breast Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Liver Cancer, Lymphoma, Kidney & Bladder Cancer. Trials in GBM and Pancreatic Cancer showed benefit of a combined regimen of Vitamin C IV and chemotherapy.
Our Naturopathic doctors have been using IV Vitamin C as an adjunctive cancer therapy since 2010. Although there is data indicating that it can be used as a stand alone cancer therapy our Naturopaths general prefer to use it in conjunction with chemotherapy if no interactions exist for an additive effect.
IV Alpha Lipoic Acid
Alpha Lipoic Acid is a strong anti-oxidant made naturally in the body. ALA a unique anti-oxidant as it can recycle other anti-oxidants like Vitamin C, E & glutathione. Our Naturopath Doctors use in Alternative Cancer care as it appears to stimulate apoptosis (programmed cell death) through mitochondrial activation. Also, our Naturopathic doctors use Metabolic approaches to Cancer therapy and ALA is a central substance for this. Alpha Lipoic Acid inhibits of aerobic glycolysis, a pathway for energy production in cancer cells where the main substrate pyruvate is made into lactate. The mechanism of Alpha Lipoic Acid is similar to the action of DCA (dichloroacetate).
Our Naturopaths also use ALA to treat hepatoxicity and various liver diseases like fatty liver disease as well nephropathy & neuropathy. ALA has no effects on cytochrome series enzymes in the liver and on renal clearance and therefore has no known effect on drug metabolism. Clinical research suggests that taking Alpha-lipoic acid along with hyperbaric oxygen therapy reduces wound area in 30% more patients with ischemic ulcers compared to hyperbaric oxygen therapy alone.
ALA has blood sugar lowering effects and can also cause nausea in select patients so our Naturopaths exercise caution when administering ALA (avoid rapid infusions) and ensure patients have eaten prior to administration.
Dr.Muradov likes ALA in the Naturopathic treatment of Multiple Sclerosis because it has good human data on reducing MMP-9 levels and therefore immune system entry into the nervous system.
Curcumin is the yellow-colored primary active constituent derived from turmeric with well known benefits in cancer, inflammation and autoimmunity. And yes, you can give it intravenously!!
Our Naturopathic doctors have been safely administering IV Curcumin since 2017 for a range of health concerns but primarily as part of a comprehensive Alternative cancer treatment plan.
Part of the mechanism is that Curcumin affects cancer pathways utilizing STAT3, mTOR and transforming growth factor (TGF)-β as well as affects apoptosis. We think about Curcumin in the treatment of Colon, Breast, Pancreatic and Prostate cancer among others.
Curcumin is used in pain conditions by our Naturopaths like osteoarthritis, but it seems to shine the most in autoimmune concerns with data in Psoriasis, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn's, Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis (all human data!)
IV Curcumin is usually used by our Naturopathic doctors as a tertiary level cancer treatment usually if we don't see results with other IV Therapies or if there is strong rational to use it as a primary therapy (like chemosensitivity testing) or if there is a clinical trial that strongly suggests potential benefit (like combining Curcumin with Gemcitabine in Pancreatic Cancer).
IV Curcumin is generally titrated to tolerance with suggested anti-cancer doses between 10-40mg/kg but our Naturopaths usually stay around 15mg/kg for cost and time considerations. Curcumin IV can give a characteristic sensation of warm, loose stools and can cause vein irritation so we constantly rotate the veins used for this particular IV Therapy.
