Inhalation Therapy


We offer Inhalation Therapy with Glutathione for the treatment of various lung conditions and allergies. This allows for a more effective delivery system, compared to oral intake of supplements. For example, glutathione taken as an inhalation therapy can help with cellular repair and detoxification; whereas high levels of concentration in tissues would not be achievable in oral form.

 

Glutathione is a potent antioxidant and immune system modulator. It is a naturally occurring compound produced in most cells in the body. Because it is an antioxidant, it is used in a wide variety of treatments. It can be administered in a wide variety of ways as well, from oral ingestion of capsules to intravenous injection. Nebulizing (also known as aerosolizing) a solution of glutathione allows direct administration to the respiratory tract, including the lungs. This improves the therapeutic benefit for those suffering from respiratory tract disorders.

 

Nebulized Glutathione is used to treat a number of upper and lower respiratory conditions. Most research has been done regarding:
  • Chronic Rhinitis
  • Asthma
  • Emphysema
  • Pneumonia
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis

 

In respiratory disorders, Nebulized Glutathione has been shown to improve immune system function by increasing the numbers of white blood cells. It also helps to decrease the amount and thickness of the mucous produced in the respiratory tract, and improves pulmonary function by helping to increase the total lung capacity (ie the volume of air able to be taken in by the lungs). NG also:
  • Increases oxygen saturation of red blood cells
  • Reduces ear fullness, nasal obstruction and chronic runny nose
  • Improves antioxidant concentration in the respiratory tract and thus decreases oxidant induced damage to lung tissue
  • Decreases smoking induced damage to lung tissue
  • Decreases damage caused by long-term puffer use
