Glutathione has been used in Asia for years for skin whitening. Dr. Santos offers this IV treatment. A Hydrafacial is also recommended to help whiten the skin. Glutathione is infused into the skin through this treatment. Glutathione has been shown to inhibit the enzyme that produces pigment and hence creating a skin whitening effect. IVs are best given once to twice a week for 6-8 weeks.
Glutathione is an important intracellular antioxidant that is especially important in protecting liver, brain, and kidney cells from toxicity and free radicals. Also, neurologist Dr Perlmutter in Florida serendipidously found that IV glutathione can reduce the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, and he has now developed protocols involving glutathione by itself given IVP up to daily which he uses in treating various other neurologic diseases.
Parkinson’s Disease and Glutathione
Dr. Santos is offering IV glutathione therapy for early and late-stage Parkinson’s Disease patients. Largely through the work of Dr. David Perlmutter, we now have access to impressive clinical and laboratory data that demonstrate marked improvement in symptoms of PD with the use of this therapy. The therapy involves a simple intravenous infusion of glutathione over an approximate 30- minute period. Most patients can expect to see immediate improvements in gait, balance, motor coordination and mood.
