Intravenous (IV) therapy is a safe and effective method of delivering therapeutic doses of vitamins and minerals directly to into the circulatory system 

Based on the individual needs of her patients, Dr. Bean formulates a variation of the Myers cocktail with a combination of vitamins and minerals with a range of B vitamins such as Methylfolate, Methylcobalamin or Hydroxycobalmin, B6, B5, B3, along with magnesium, calcium, minerals and specific amino acids 

The main advantage of IV therapy is that it bypasses the absorption required in the digestive tract. Through the use of IV therapy the nutrients are taken up or rather absorbed much more quickly than if it had been taken oral.

Neural therapy is an excellent treatment for chronic pain and illness by activating healing in the nervous system.

Treatment involves injections of a local anesthetic into trigger points, scars, glands, peripheral nerves and other tissues. The process of healing is by normalizing the illness-related dysfunction of the nervous system.

Neural Prolotherapy an effective treatment for most injuries and chronic  pain. The treatment involves injections just under the skin with sugar and water (dextrose or mannitol) while using a very small needle.

The hypothesized mechanism of NPT is believed that dextrose and mannitol solutions assist in the repair of connective tissue in the nerve trunks under the skin in a similar way as repairing connective tissue in ligaments and tendons with Classical Prolotherapy. These nerves are known to be responsible for painful conditions generally identified as ‘neuralgias’ or ‘peripheral neuropathic pain’.

There are a variety of conditions NPT is valuable for. One of them is treating the achilles tendon along with tennis elbow, painful knees, shoulders, neck, hips, ankles and low back. Results are consistent and two year follow up studies have shown success rates between 80-100%, while NPT is less invasive than Classical Prolotherapy.​

Homeopathy is a 200 year old medicine that aims to bring change by working with the body’s own healing power to achieve healing. The underlying concept is ‘like cures like’ and is based on the ‘principles of similars’. This principle recognizes that substances known to cause particular symptoms, in low doses, can also help cure the disease. In traditional medicine we use vaccines to help prevent contracting this disease – ‘like cures like.’ Homeopathy is utilized to do the same. 
Homeopathic remedies are dilute preparations of natural substances. Remedies can effectively be used for both acute or chronic disease.
This is one of Dr. Bean’s favorite modalities to use as it is safe and effective when used along side pharmaceutical drugs as well as an alternative therapy for young children.
