Description

Intravenous therapy education in North American naturopathic medical school varies greatly by jurisdiction, which creates inconsistent standards for students and new graduates. Even physicians who have been in practice experience this discrepancy in training. This course aims to dig into more nuanced areas of IV therapy, beyond the basic Myer’s Cocktail.

A former professor of intravenous therapy at Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA, and with years of advanced training in IV therapy, oral and IV chelation therapy, injection pain management, and ozone therapy, Dr. Brendan Cochran delivers a comprehensive overview of clinically relevant IV topics, including amino acids, glutathione, botanicals, and homeopathics.

Learning Objectives

  • Review indications for intravenous therapy
  • Review contraindications for intravenous therapy

  • Discuss lesser known clinical uses of IV glutathione
  • Parse current research findings to determine best practices for IV use
  • Discuss the role of botanical in IV therapy
  • Review commonly used botanical and homeopathic IV medicines
