Everyone is unique. Based on your health condition, you may need an infusion tailored specifically for you. Discuss your health concerns with our healthcare providers and get the right formula with the right dosage and treatment plan custom-made for you. Very high doses of Vitamin C require G6PD testing. We collaborate with other practitioners that refer patients for IV Therapy. An initial visit is required.

Add on a Micronutrient Test and Take the Guessing Out

As you age, your body’s vitamin and mineral stores decrease. Depending on your lifestyle factors and oxidative stress, the quicker you may age. Nutritional balance plays a key role in optimal wellness, chronic disease prevention and managing the aging process. Micronutrient testing offers the most accurate, scientifically proven method of assessing nutritional deficiencies. Vitamin, mineral and antioxidant deficiencies have been shown to affect the function of the immune system which can contribute to many degenerative diseases.

Due to the complexity of the human body, an individualized healthcare approach is the best way to guarantee optimal results. Micronutrient tests measure the function of 35 nutritional components including vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within our white blood cells. Scientific evidence shows us that analyzing the white blood cells gives us the most accurate analysis of a body’s deficiencies.

Once your results are in, you can take the guess work out of which supplements you should be taking and use the Micronutritent testing to guide your IV Therapies.

Add on the Micronutrient Testing with your initial IV Therapy.

IV SAFETY

STAY HYDRATED

Always drink 2 large glasses of water (24 oz.) before and after your treatment, even when fasting for blood work. Being well hydrated will make inserting the IV easier and will help your kidneys to more easily flush toxins and heavy metals from your body.

CONTRAINDICATED IN

Avoid IV Therapy when taking medications for chest pain (nitrates) or pulmonary hypertension (guanylate cyclase stimulators), and for conditions like kidney disease or allergies to any ingredients in the IV infusions. Please speak with your healthcare provider if you have any concerns or side effects.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS

Although rare, it is important to be aware of any side effects IV Therapy infusions may cause. Some of these may be vein irritation, pain at the site of infusion, lowering blood sugar, lowering blood pressure, lightheadedness or dizziness, rash, upset stomach, fatigue following infusion, muscle cramps or weakness, nausea, flushing, sweating or headaches.

ABOUT IPT

Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) is an innovative approach to managing cancer that was developed by Dr. Donato Perez Garcia, Sr., MD (1896-1971) in 1932. Insulin Potentiation Therapy targets the powerful cell-killing effects of standard chemotherapy on cancer cells, while using very low doses of chemotherapy drugs. IPT curbs the destructive side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, hair loss, and immune suppression.

Healthy cells use both sugar and fats as energy. However, cancer cells are completely dependent on sugar and have six times the number of insulin receptors than normal cells. Insulin is the hormone that regulates blood sugar (glucose) levels by allowing glucose to enter cells.

Cancer cells get their energy by secreting their own insulin, and they stimulate themselves to grow by secreting their own insulin-like growth factor (IGF). Insulin encourages cancer cells to enter a phase of DNA synthesis and cell division, making them vulnerable to chemotherapy drugs. These are the mechanisms of malignancy.

Insulin and IGF work by attaching to special cell membrane receptors, and these receptors are ten times more concentrated on cancer cell membranes than on normal cells. These receptors are the key to IPT.

IPT is an alternative cancer approach that has almost none of the side effects such as nausea, radical hair loss, liver damage, and DNA distortion with standard chemotherapy, so it is appealing to patients who recognize the need for chemotherapy but want to do it in a safer, gentler manner.

Insulin makes the cell membrane more permeable to substances like chemotherapy drugs and as cancer cells are destroyed, this permeability allows toxins to be flushed into the circulation and leave the body. Instead of loading the body with high doses of chemotherapy drugs, which kill both cancer and healthy cells, IPT specifically targets the cancer cells. Healthy cells are left unharmed.

IPT embodies a potentially revolutionary concept in the medical management of a chronic degenerative disease. It has been hailed by those familiar with its precepts as the summum bonum of allopathic medicine. In its applications, practitioners who use IPT feel that it offers a comparable level of clinical success compared to conventional full-dose chemotherapy, but typically without the many side effects.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

“Dr. Sharkar is knowledgeable, kind and takes the time to really figure out what’s going on with you from a holistic perpsective. I moved away from DC and still go back to the clinic to get treated or pick up more supplements whenever I’m in town. I couldn’t praise Indigo more!”

Zainab

“Indigo Health is where you want to go if you would like a natural approach to your healthcare. Dr. Sharkar spends a great deal of time with you to come up with a plan to improve your health with natural supplements as well as traditional medicine. She is extremely caring and knowledgeable. Indigo Health is “concierge medicine” at it’s best!”

Candace

“Great experience and very knowledgable staff. Will definitely be coming back for a follow up.”

Robert

“Grateful to have found Dr. Sharkar. She is a kind, compassionate and caring doctor. Both my daughter and I are patients at the health clinic. Highly recommend this practice if you are seeking a medical provider who is very adept at getting to the root problem.”

Cathy

“Dr. Sharkar gave me back my life. I had done everything I could think of, or learn about, to heal myself from multiple health conditions and had reached a dead end. We found her at a health and healing fair in the Washington DC area. She told us that she had a lot of experience healing thyroid conditions, as she had healed herself. This is what I needed to hear and gave me hope.
Dr. Sharkar and her staff are amazing, caring, supportive and responsive. Even during my most difficult moments on this journey of healing, I never felt alone. I knew that I could reach out to her for guidance and assistance. My body is healthier now than it has been since I was in utero, and it is to Indigo Integrative Health that I offer my deepest gratitude for this transformation. Thank you!”

Basenji

“Dr. Sharkar at Indigo Integrative Health Clinic is amazing! It has been great to see someone who is extremely knowledgeable and works to address whole body health. I feel she truly listens to me and addresses all of my questions. I am very happy to have found her!

Kathryn

“Working with Indigo is the best decision I have ever made for my health! After years of seeing Specialists who continued to tell me I was healthy, despite my symptoms, I found Indigo and a Dr. who was willing to find the source of my issues. I was quickly diagnosed and treated with natural supplements and lifestyle changes that worked. I started seeing improvements in my blood-work immediately and steadily until my tests were within normal range. Dr. Sharkar and her team are very thorough, effective, and kind. I am now healthier and have more energy than I have had in 12 years and will continue to work with Indigo to maintain my health. “

Cayce

“This place is amazing. I do IV therapy there and it has changed my life!”

Chris

“This was a great experience with very personal and knowledgeable staff and doctor. I will definitely be returning for a follow up and recommend this clinic to anyone interested in getting to the bottom of their health issues. It was great to get looked at from a holistic approach rather then just masking the symptoms. “

Robert

“I’ve been to many doctors in my life and finally, Dr. Sharkar has actually helped me to improve my health. It has been the best investment I’ve ever made and I’m very happy to have such a great and caring doctor. The best part is that everything is natural and it actually works. “

Eugenia

“My daughters and I see Dr S Sharkar. We have been patients for over a year and I can honestly say that Dr Sharkar has ALWAYS been there for us. She is a caring, honest, intelligent, experienced professional. She never hurries an appointment and she treats you as an equal, incorporating your views and research into her plan. She is very systematic and uses the highest quality diagnostic companies and supplements. Because she is a highly experienced Nurse practitioner and a Naturopathic practitioner she can give Intravenous therapies and can also support her holistic therapies with conventional medicine and tests that are covered by insurance. We have complicated health challenges and she is well able to support us with these. Our ages range from 4-50, so all are welcome! She has a lovely sense of humor and is a pleasure to visit. I highly recommend Indigo Integrative Health Clinic.”

Deirdre

After years of struggling with fatigue and ups and downs in my mood, I decided to try the NAD+ Brain Restoration at Indigo. I was especially hopeful about this treatment because I am preparing to start a graduate program which I know will require my full energy, attention and focus. I am so pleased to report that after receiving this treatment I have improved on a number of levels. I am feeling more energized throughout the day and my mood has improved. I feel like I have more mental stamina and clarity to complete all of my daily responsibilities, which before had felt like they required so much more effort mentally and physically. I am thankful that I was able to address and improve on these concerns with a natural approach! Thank you Indigo!
