The Full Nitty Gritty

Alpha-lipoic acid is a sulfur that contains fatty acids and can be found in the body’s cells. It converts blood sugar into energy and serves as a fat and water-soluble antioxidant. Since the human body produces this sulfur in small quantities, its intravenous administration is recommended.

It has health benefits for persons with neuropathy, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cataracts, as well as nerve and liver-related diseases.

Highly recommend Dr. Levitan and his staff. After mounting frustration with conventional medicine we came to Five Journeys. Thanks to Dr. Levitan and his approach to finding the cause of a problem and not just treating the symptom, progress is finally being made. We appreciate the holistic approach and are so happy we found Five Journeys.
