Anti-Aging Therapies at Pacific Naturopathic in Mt. View, CA

One of the most popular therapies in alternative and traditional healing arts alike these days falls under the broad category of “Anti-Aging Medicine.”

It asks, “How can we slow or even reverse the aging process, and extend life beyond the average lifespan – AND maintain our health and vitality while we age?

As the average age of the world’s population rises, the sale of anti-aging nutritional, physical fitness, anti-wrinkling, hormone replacement, and vitamin, supplement, and herbal products has soared, becoming a very lucrative global industry.

A new breed of doctors and naturopathic physicians are using the latest, evidence-based approaches to detect, prevent, treat, and reverse age-related dysfunctions, disorders, and diseases.

High on the list of anti-aging goals is maintaining sound mental function.

In our careers as naturopaths, Dr. Connie and I have witnessed all manner of anti-aging approaches. Our personal stock in trade as naturopathic physicians has always been to seek valid, tested ways to safely and effectively balance the body’s own chemistry so that it can restore itself to health and vitality.

We’ll go so far as to boldly come right out and say: No other profession has as much experience in anti-aging as naturopathic medicine.

We’ve always been on the cutting edge when it comes to the science of youthfulness.

The most effective restorative approach we’ve discovered in our practice at Pacific Naturopathic is intravenous (IV) nutritional therapy.

For example, the ingredients of the IV Myers Cocktail include magnesium, calcium, selenium, B vitamins, and vitamin C.

This safe, highly effective therapy administers nutrients directly to the bloodstream. 

It’s an exceptionally powerful way to give the body nutrients that will help keep it youthful and healthy. A beauty of IV therapy is that it circumvents the GI tract, where a large fraction of the nutrients in our food are lost, and it eliminates problems with poor absorption of the nutrients in orally administered food and supplements.

A prime example is the Myers Cocktail. It’s an extremely safe, well-tolerated therapy that addresses key deficiencies of the aging metabolism.


Even if you’re eating a super-healthy diet that’s chock-full of raw fruit and vegetables, “cooked” as nature intended, your body may not be able to absorb the wonderful nutrients that will help it fight the aging process.

IV therapy boosts the antioxidant vitamin and mineral levels in your body much more effectively than oral supplements or even a diet rich in raw fruits, nuts, and salads.

The Myers Cocktail helps your body repair damaged cells, slow the aging process, and recover its youthful energy and vigor.

Another powerful IV therapy is intravenous alpha-lipoic acid (ALA). Intravenous ALA passes directly into the brain, where it provides powerful protection to brain and nerve tissue.

Research indicates that intravenous alpha-lipoic acid helps both prevent and treat stroke and other brain disorders associated with free-radical damage.

Here at Pacific Naturopathic, we offer a complete range of intravenous therapies. If you would like to discuss the value of adding IV therapy to your anti-aging protocol, I would be delighted to chat. Please phone 650-917-1121 to schedule a consultation.
