Nutritional TherapyOrem, UT
Injected Supplements and IV Nutritional Therapy are the most effective way of getting nutrients to your cells. Injection and IV routes avoid breakdown and metabolism in your stomach, and eliminating or changing the supplements by the liver before they reach your circulation. Correcting nutritional deficiencies is a proactive approach to living longer and enjoying life with better mental and physical function. Certain nutrients slow the aging process, optimize healing, boost the regenerative capacity of your cells, and support your native stem cell population. Improved hydration can improve memory, cognitive ability, energy, mood, sexual performance, sleep, and smooth the skin. The goal is to optimize your cellular performance so that you look and feel like the clock has stopped, or even been turned back a decade. Nutritional therapy may be recommended to enhance the results of your regenerative, pain, or aesthetic procedures. Specialized IV therapies like NAD+ and Plaquex are available in our office.
IV nutritional therapy and needle free vitamin injections are available by Mignon Walker, MD in Orem and the surrounding area.

Needle Free B12 Lipotropic: Boost Your Fat Burning
Losing weight can be extremely frustrating! Get some serious help burning fat with a NEEDLE-FREE Lipotrophic B12. It not only helps reduce body fat, it can also help build muscle and promote a healthy immune system.
How Does it Work?
Our B12 lipotropic contains a fat burning combination of methionine, inositol, choline, carnitine and B12. These are all powerful antioxidants that help your body turn fat into energy.
Methionine helps break down sugars and carbohydrates, and, may help with longevity and reducing the risk of certain cancers
Inositol helps burn the energy in food rather than storing it as fat. We love it because it also helps you balance your mood and helps insulin work better
Choline promotes healthy nerve cells, cuts muscle recovery time, and helps convert fat to energy
Carnitine helps your body metabolize fats and gives you an energy boost. It also reduces recovery times and promotes muscle building.
Our mixture of B1, B6, B12, promotes red blood cell production, converts food to energy, strengthens your immune system, helps convert fat and carbohydrates into energy, and increases your metabolism.

We are excited about NAD+ IV therapy, because of NAD's potential to prolong life, protect DNA, slow down aging and help restore function in neuro-degenerative illness.
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+) is a coenzyme present in almost all cells in your body. Its main purpose is to fuel metabolic reactions forward, similar to gas in your car. Without NAD+, your cells won’t be able to metabolize carbohydrates, fats and amino acids. NAD+ also plays a significant role in gene expression linked to age-related diseases.
IV infusion of NAD is a natural, holistic treatment that has shown outstanding results. NAD+ is THE Anti-Aging Molecule, Anti-Cancer Molecule, Anti-Diabetes Molecule! NAD+ is found naturally in every cell of our body. IV NAD+ therapy may be the light at the end of the tunnel for many people suffering from addiction, age-related diseases, and chronic fatigue. It is responsible for restoring energy and clarity of thought, turning back the hands of time, reversing depression, improving athletic performance and helping individuals withdraw from addictive substances safely. NAD+ is basically the building block of a healthy body that the brain, our internal organs and neurological systems need to function at optimal efficiency.
Compelling research has shown that NAD+ may help you withdraw from alcohol and opioids safely, overcome anxiety and depression, handle acute and chronic stress more effectively, and cope better with PTSD. Individuals report feeling calm and content and say they lost their “cravings” after a full course of treatment.
Clinical trials also suggest that in addition to slowing the aging process, this breakthrough therapy helps to repair DNA, thus improving healthy brain function and aiding in neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and may delay the onset of chronic fatigue syndrome, high blood pressure, diabetes, and cancer. Boosting your NAD levels will allow your body to heal itself better from injury, especially when it comes to the regeneration of your blood vessels. Diabetic patients are at risk for developing blood vessel damage due to high blood glucose levels. This type of damage may lead to atherosclerosis, or the hardening of your arteries. Not only will NAD promote healing of your insides, but it may also reduce your risk of heart disease.
Five-ten treatments of NAD+ IV therapy combined with amino acid, minerals, and B-vitamin infusions administered in a 10 day period is typically recommended for full effect. Monthly treatments are then recommended to maintain the benefits. Treatment is tailored to your individual needs after a detailed consultation.
Plaquex therapy restores cell membrane integrity and cell membrane function which normalizes the cell metabolism. This in turn helps to clear out plaque deposits and improve the function of all organs, including liver and kidneys. It also improves the blood flow properties so blood can flow more easily without the use of blood thinners. It also has an effect on important enzymes involved with blood lipids. It thereby reduces LDL cholesterol and triglycerides and increases HDL cholesterol.
Plaquex is a compounded medicine that contains polyunsaturated phosphatidylcholine (PC). PC makes up all the cell membranes in the body as well as the transport vehicles for cholesterol, such as HDL and LDL. Cell membranes consist of a double layer of PC molecules.
Embedded in between these molecules are receptors for signaling proteins such as hormones, neurotransmitters and many more. Cholesterol molecules are also embedded in this layer to give the cell its stability.
As we age, the PC in the cell membranes becomes damaged by toxins, detergents, free radicals, heavy metals, smoking, hypertension, high blood sugar as well as high levels of stress hormones such as cortisol and adrenalin. With aging, the body is no longer able to produce enough PC to repair this damage.
Consequences of this damage are cardiovascular disease with plaque deposits in the blood vessels, liver damage, kidney damage and brain damage. Besides making up all the cell membranes, PC also has anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties.
Plaquex has been studied in many countries since the 1950s. Plaquex is used to treat atherosclerosis. It is given to patients suffering from angina pectoris whose coronary arteries contain plaque deposits, but also in patients with carotid artery plaque and peripheral plaque in the legs causing claudication pain when walking.
Because of its effect on the liver and the kidneys, it is also used to improve the function of both these organs. It can also improves skin texture and helps with a more youthful appearance.
What Does the Treatment Involve?
Before the first Plaquex treatment is given, blood samples are taken for determination of important serum parameters of organ function, which will be monitored during the course of the Plaquex treatment.
A check-up is usually done by the treating physician, who will discuss your present use of medications such as Beta-Blockers, Nitroglycerin and also supplements, diet and exercise with you.
How is Plaquex Administered?
It is administered intravenously over a period of 90 minutes. A minimum of 20-40 Plaquex infusions is suggested. In severe cases of heart disease (By- pass and Angioplasty candidates) up to 45 or more treatments with Plaquex may be required.
