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

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.
