IV Poly MVA Cancer Treatment

What is IV Poly MVA Cancer Treatment?

IV Poly MVA is an alternative therapy for cancer that is non-toxic and natural.

The treatment is an intravenous dose of a charged liquid complex of ⍺-lipoic acid, palladium, thiamin and other vitamins1-3.

Given that cancers typically stimulate angiogenesis or the proliferation of vascular tissue, Poly MVA uses our blood supply into tumours to target dysfunctional cells. The complex is soluble in not only water but also fat, making it especially capable of reaching all the cells in our body, including the brain1-3.

In our tissues, lipoic acid uses oxygen to generate energy while palladium donates that energy, making the complex a very effective scavenger of free radicals. This process supports the performance of normal cells by acting as an anti-oxidant. Yet, at the same time, the complex distresses cancer cells which are intolerant to the generation of oxygen1-3

As a cancer treatment, the therapy is safe and there are no poly mva side effects.

List of Ingredients in IV Poly MVA

IV Poly MVA as a Cancer Treatment

For over 20 years, Poly MVA has been used as a safe treatment for cancer and chronic illnesses, as well as for increasing the quality of life of patients on other cancer and chronic illness treatments2.

No contraindications exist for IV PolyMVA, including conventional surgery, chemotherapy & radiation3

Palliative Care

IV Poly MVA may increase the quality of life of patients on other cancer treatments3. Patient energy levels tend to be depleted during chemotherapy & radiation and this vitamin-mineral complex supports these patients by increasing the energy produced by cells2. Likewise, the complex also supports overall health by supplying the nutrients that are drained during such cancer treatments1.

IV Poly MVA Adjunct to Conventional Treatments

IV Poly MVA helps to reduce side effects of radiation therapy4-7 and chemotherapy1,8 by sequestering the free radicals that these therapies produce, which damage tumour cells as well as normal cells.

Why consider IV Poly MVA?

  • Doses are fast acting due to direct absorption1
  • Acts as an antioxidant and detoxifier to protect our bodies from free radicals1
    • In this way, also protects our DNA from damage from reactive oxygen species1
    • Slows the course of aging from the breakdown of cells1,2
  • Improves quality of life of patients with cancer and chronic illnesses1
    • Increases energy levels by enhancing the production of energy in cell using free radicals1
    • Supplies the nutrients that are drained during cancer and cancer treatments1
    • Decrease the damage of conventional cancer treatments on cells and tissues1-3
    • Improves appetite2
  • Improves metabolic function of normal cells2
    • By supplying minerals and vitamins necessary for biological function2
    • Support normal cell functions, including nerves and white blood cells1
    • Enhances the performance of neurotransmitters1
    • Balances pH balance, which conserves necessary levels of oxygen in cells and tissues1
  • Suppresses the proliferation of abnormal cells1,2,3

How Does IV Poly MVA Work?

Because the vitamin-mineral complex is water and fat soluble, Poly MVA diffuses through all cell membranes1,2,3. Likewise, the molecule complex is able to cross nuclear membranes and the intricate blood-brain barrier.

As a combination of vitamins and minerals, ⍺-lipoic acid uses oxygen to generate energy while palladium donates that energy to mitochondria in normal cells1-3.

Mitochondria are considered the powerhouse of the cell, or the main generator of energy. As we increase in age, we have fewer mitochondria and the remaining mitochondria are less productive. PolyMVA increases aerobic metabolism in aged tissue by increasing activity of enzymes in the Kreb Cycle by 225% and enzymes of the electron transport chain by 150%9,10. However, the complex controls energy within tumour cells, by reversing the flow of electrons1-3. Cell death is induced as cancer cells are forced to use excess energy under aerobic respiration1. Furthermore, Poly MVA is described to act on tumours as a “gene-restoring” nutrient by restoring the charge of the injured DNA molecules in cancer cells1-3. Lastly, the antioxidant complex also reduces oxidative stress in these tissues by: lowering lipid peroxidation, increasing glutathione levels, increasing glutathione reductase activity, and increasing glutathione catalase activity2,11.

The Use of IV Poly MVA in Other Conditions

Treatment using IV Poly MVA acts as a super antioxidant to eliminate free radicals, which is especially beneficial to patients with degenerative diseases1-3. Furthermore, the complex turns free radicals into energy – a benefit to many chronic conditions2.

Conditions that benefit from IV Poly MVA

  • Cognitive decline, senile dementia9
  • AIDS3
  • Alzheimer’s3
  • Cachexia3
  • Cardiac support3,12
    • Including: Age-degenerated hearts7
  • Diabetes3,13
  • Endometriosis3
  • Fatigue3
    • Mitochondrial dysfunction3,14
    • Chronic fatigue syndrome3
    • HIV-associated fatigue3,15
    • Multiple sclerosis16
    • Fibromyalgia3,16
  • Lyme Disease3
  • Neuropathy3
  • Parkinson’s3
  • Stroke3, and other conditions due to hypoxia (i.e. lack of oxygen)
    • Injuries are often due to tissue death due to a lack of oxygen, or ischemia, that is suddenly resupplied with blood and associated free radicals
    • These patients experience 90% protection with Poly MVA, in comparison to 30% with other leading treatments
