Well I'm glad the advice gave you a chuckle-it's good for that at least!
I got a 10 gram Vit C IV that took 1-2 hours I think. It really made a difference in that I had lots of energy that day. I was told that 10 grams is the "standard" for alternative medicine for a Vit C IV.
I had an IV each of the four times I had mercury removed and thought it really helped. I think it cost about $50.00 but thinking back it may have been more. I scheduled my dental work on the day I could get my IV. So I went to the dentist and then pretty straight to the alternative doctor for my IV. I believe I also had glutathione in the mix too since it's good for detoxing. I had a backup plan to get a ride to the Vit C IV if I didn't feel well enough to drive.
Realize that since this is alternative medicine if you feel "funny" they can slow the drip line down. I just let them set it up as they thought best. They know I am sensitive. I asked if I should have more and they thought that 10 grams was enough. I was told that if I had cancer or a severe problem they might go as high as 30 grams a day. I have since gone in for a vit c drip when coming down with a bad illness (the cold from hell) and it kicked it pretty much the same day.
The only other advice I have is not to have your next dental visit if you are not feeling back to the point you were at before the first filling replacement.
Let me know what else you'd like info on,
