Plaquex therapy helps remove plaque deposits that block your arteries to improve organ function. At Balance of Life Clinic in Medina, Ohio, we treat the whole person using integrative approaches, including various intravenous (IV) therapies. Our plaquex therapy is one of our many IV therapies that help your body achieve optimal balance.
What Is Plaquex?
Plaquex, chemical name phosphatidylcholine, is a natural substance that’s part of every living cell. It’s a mixture of essential phospholipids containing phosphorous, glycerol, and fatty acids. Cell walls are primarily made of phosphatidylcholine, including 70% of the cell walls in humans.
These cell walls, or membranes, have a double layer of phosphatidylcholine molecules with structural proteins and cholesterol, giving the wall stability. Cell membranes also act as the transport vehicle for cholesterol, including HDL, good cholesterol, and LDL, the bad cholesterol.
Dangers Of Cell Damage And Plaquex Depletion
Damage to cell walls reduces surface tension and allows LDL cholesterol to be thrown out of the membrane, which causes elevated LDL cholesterol in your blood serum. As you age, the phosphatidylcholine in the cell membranes becomes damaged, and your body can’t produce enough to repair cell damage.
Toxic substances, free radicals, heavy metals, detergents, hypertension, smoking, high blood sugar, and high levels of stress hormones can all lead to damaged cell walls and phosphatidylcholine. All this damage can contribute to plaques forming inside your blood vessels and eventually blocking the vessels, causing cardiovascular disease and kidney, liver, and brain damage.
It can also slow recovery from many chronic health conditions because phosphatidylcholine also has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. When your body isn’t producing enough phosphatidylcholine, it has a difficult time healing.
How Plaquex Therapy Works
Oral phosphatidylcholine supplements have little effect on your blood vessels because your liver usually absorbs them. While this helps repair liver damage, only tiny amounts of phosphatidylcholine are delivered to other places, including your damaged blood vessels. Intravenous therapy delivers plaquex directly into a vein through a needle and IV drip, so the plaquex can effectively remove fatty and hardened plaque from your blood vessels.
Plaque that blocks arteries in your body comprises many components, but the two primary parts are cholesterol and calcium. Therefore, plaquex therapy may be combined with EDTA chelation therapy. While plaquex therapy addresses the cholesterol component, chelation therapy addresses the calcium issue.
Benefits Of Plaquex Therapy
The most crucial benefit of plaquex therapy is the reduction of plaque buildup in the walls of your arteries. That’s why it’s used to treat atherosclerosis, the hardening of arteries caused by a build-up of cholesterol, fats, and other substances in your artery walls that restrict blood flow.
Through its effect on important enzymes involved with blood lipids, plaquex therapy reduces the bad LDL cholesterol blocking your arteries. It also reduces triglycerides, a fat found in your blood, while increasing good HDL cholesterol.
Plaquex therapy also restores cell membrane integrity and function, which works to improve cell metabolism. This also helps remove plaque deposits and improves organ function, including the liver and kidneys. It also improves blood flow, so it circulates more easily without the need for blood thinners. Plaquex therapy is known to increase your heart’s ability to withstand stress, which is especially important for anyone who’s experienced a heart attack or other injuries to the heart.
Because phosphatidylcholine has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, plaquex therapy can increase these benefits. This helps lower chronic inflammation, which allows your body to heal and repair naturally. These natural processes are the first step to overcoming many chronic health conditions. Plaquex therapy can also improve oxygen exchange, nutrient absorption, and skin texture for a healthy, more youthful appearance.
