Our gut + autoimmune disease + inflammation IV drip works hard inside your body to support the body’s natural defences. This powerful nutrient cocktail works to protect the body against inflammation and its effects on your gut and immune system.

“70-80% of the immune system is located within the gut. Hence, having a healthy gut is paramount as it has so many implications on other systems within the body. Any injury to the body gives rise to inflammation. Continuous long-term inflammation can give rise to a heightened immune response which in some cases, may eventually manifest as an autoimmune disease. As such, I think of the gut as the seat of immunity and potential inflammation and it needs to be assessed as one.”

Our gut + autoimmune disease + inflammation IV drip is ideal for people who:

  • Have a high-stress job
  • Have a demanding lifestyle
  • Are frequent flyers
  • Eat out often and/or consume a lot of highly refined food and/or fast food
  • Have had long courses of antibiotics as a child or adult
  • Have an autoimmune disease (for example, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), coeliac, thyroid diseases, Crohn’s, psoriasis, type 1 diabetes)
  • Have started developing unexplained random symptoms which do not seem to correlate

And/or experience any of the the following:

  • Gut issues (including excessive burping, gas, bloating, acid reflux, constipation or loose stools. These issues are not normal, even if they are ‘normal’ for you.)
  • Skin conditions (including eczema, psoriasis, and acne)
  • Joint pain
  • Brain fog
  • Low energy

Noticeable benefits vary between individuals but patients report a general feeling of wellbeing and vitality in addition to symptom relief (for example, improved energy, reduced joint pain, more mental clarity, and better skin).

How are the gut, autoimmune disease + inflammation linked?

Inflammation

Gut dysbiosis

Immune response

Let us explain. Infection (viral or bacterial) or inflammation (for example, from consuming sugar, pesticides, and toxins we breathe in) irritates the body. Inflammation can build up slowly over a long period of time or it can be sudden (for example an allergic reaction).

Every time inflammation occurs, the immune system kicks in and sends ‘soldiers’ to fight the inflammation. This can lead to:

  • Lowered immune state: The body can’t develop an immune response to the damage because the immune system is not strong enough. We see a lot of patients with this. They may feel tired and are not in great health, but don’t tend to get sick often because the body isn’t producing a strong immune response.
  • Altered immune state: The body gets confused and the immune system mistakenly attacks itself because it can’t tell the difference between your own cells and foreign cells (bacteria and viruses). It ends up attacking other systems in the body too. This often leads to the development of autoimmune conditions like psoriasis, Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis.
  • Hyper immune state: The immune system becomes incredibly sensitive. We often see this manifest in an increased number of food intolerances over time.

Each time the immune system is triggered, this causes further damage to the gut lining. Over time, this can lead to a disturbance in the microbiome – also referred to as gut dysbiosis – causing issues digesting food and absorbing nutrients. When the body isn’t absorbing all the nutrients it needs, this can impact many processes and systems in the body and can lead to many other health issues.

This is where our IV drip comes in – it bypasses the gut completely and gets those much-needed nutrients directly into the bloodstream so they can be used where the body needs them most.

What’s in the gut + autoimmune disease + inflammation drip?

The gut + autoimmune disease + inflammation IV drip contains:

  • Myers cocktail (Vitamin C, B complex, magnesium)
  • 50ml immune amino acid blend (L-arginine-HCl 1000mg, L-lysine-HCl, L-glutamine, taurine, glycine, N-acetyl-L-cysteine each 500mg, L-methionine 250mg)

Myers cocktail: The Myers cocktail is packed with anti-inflammatory properties. This blend of vitamins and minerals supports the immune system so it can fight off inflammation and infection. It is our go-to IV drip for those with gut issues like irritable bowel, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, multiple intolerances, Coeliac disease, and those with autoimmune diseases.

Immune amino acid blend: This is a mix of essential amino acids that helps to protect and support the immune and digestive systems. This blend comprises:

  • L-arginine-HCl: Its anti-inflammatory properties promote muscle repair. It is essential for the production of nitric oxide which helps maintain the normal epithelial barrier in the intestine (your internal gut lining).
  • L-lysine-HCl: The body cannot make lysine; it must be obtained through diet. Lysine plays a role in helping the body to absorb calcium, iron and zinc which are important for immune function.
  • L-glutamine: This is needed to make other amino acids, and is essentially a fuel for the cells of the immune system.
  • N-acetyl L-cysteine (NAC): This amino acid is a scavenger of free radicals and is shown to have anti-inflammatory activity. It has also been shown to suppress viral replication.
  • Taurine: Protects the body from oxidative stress associated with inflammatory diseases. It also supports nerve growth, lowers blood pressure, and is essential for heart health.
  • Glycine: A precursor for important metabolites like glutathione, this antioxidant and anti-inflammatory also helps regulate the immune system.
  • L-methionine: This has antioxidant properties that can help protect against oxidative stress.

The Harpal way

Instead of addressing mere symptom relief, we prefer to tackle the source of the problem. At Harpal Clinic, we always consider an individual patient’s needs before any treatment. Whilst we will, of course, provide you with a one-off drip if desired, our speciality is our medically-led approach. This involves looking at the whole body and addressing any underlying issue(s), rather than symptoms alone. We offer diagnostic testing if required.

All IV drip patients receive an in-depth consultation with our IV nurse included in the price. This is a prime opportunity to discuss symptoms, medical history and other influential factors. Where needed, we can tailor your IV drip to address specific requirements and goals.
