Nutrient IVs and Transfer Factors

bitstrips, flying
The doctor who is treating me for my Fibromyalgia (and I have EBV and other viruses) suggests that I try nutrient IVs that her office administers. It uses high doses of glutathione, magnesium, B-vitamins and some other things that I can't remember. Has anyone had this done before and did it help you feel better?

She's also suggesting the Transfer Factor system from Researched Nutritionals to address the viruses specifically and to increase immune function. Has anyone tried that and gotten relief from it?

Also, I will say that since I've been seeing her (started in Feb of this year), I've been feeling a lot better. She has me on thyroid medicine (she thinks fibromyalgia is a full-body manifestation of hypothyroidism), which has helped a lot but I think my dose needs to be raised a bit more, but she's hesitant to do that. She's been working on increasing my methylation and mitchondrial energy as well. I am taking loads of supplements and eating a mostly paleo diet.

This all may sound like mumbo-jumbo, but something is clearly working. If anyone is curious as to what exactly my protocol is, let me know and I will write it down. Also, please let me know if you've tried IVs or transfer factors.

Thanks!

I have not heard of this. It sounds plausible. I would be interested to find out what you discover.

I also feel much better when I stick to a paleo diet. Which supplements do you take? I currently am taking Fish Oil, Calcium (because I don't eat dairy), vitamin D and a multi-vitamin.
