Welcome to the FSM and IV Clinic!
At Robinson Family Clinic, we do not just treat your symptoms. We believe that there are many different ways to stay healthy and treat your health concerns.
For decades, we have used integrative medicine along with traditional medicine to help patients heal and adjust their lifestyle. For the first time we are opening up our therapies to non-listed patients of RFC.
While many of our therapies still require medical supervision, we have decided to offer more universal therapies open to the public and not solely for patients of the practice. A medical provider will be on premises while therapies are being conducted: Patient health and care is always our number one priority.
Frequency-specific microcurrent (FSM) is an FDA-approved technique for treating many different medical conditions at a cellular level. We are able to program frequencies to encourage natural healing of minor injuries. A frequency is the rate at which a sound wave or electronic pulse is produced. This measurement is registered in hertz (Hz).
Nearly every type of tissue in the body has a frequency identified to assist in the healing and pain reduction process. Not only does FSM reduce cytokines that causes inflammation, but it also increases our cell’s energy source (ATP) as much as 500% in damaged cells. In using FSM to treat pain, it’s been found that various frequencies can be used to potentially reduce inflammation (swelling), repair tissue and reduce pain, to name a few.
We use an FDA-approved device to provide a low level current through electrodes. We apply these electrodes to the body via electrode patches or wet towels with electrode leads attached to them. The device emits a microcurrent via electrodes that is extremely mild (i.e., one millionth of an ampere). In fact, the human body itself produces its own current within each cell. We select and program specific frequencies depending on the tissues involved to encourage the body's natural healing and to reduce pain. There are frequencies identified for nearly every type of tissue in the body.
One way FSM works is by potentially increasing the production of a substance called ATP in injured tissues. ATP is the major source of energy for all cellular reactions in the body. Because FSM treatment can increase ATP production by as much as 500% in damaged tissues, it may assist in the body's recovery process. Depending on the condition, FSM treatment can “loosen” or soften muscles, which can help relieve pain and/or stiffness. What's more, FSM also reduces the natural cytokines—chemicals that the bodies immune cells produce—that cause inflammation.
FSM is most often used to treat nerve/muscle pain, inflammation and scar tissue. Additional treatment uses can address such medical conditions as follows: Acute (sudden) and chronic (long-term) neuropathic (nerve) pain | Acute and chronic musculoskeletal injuries | Arthritis | Asthma | Burns | Chronic fracture and bone pain | Concussions | Diabetic neuropathy | Disc injuries/discogenic- and facet-based pain | Fibromyalgia | Headaches | Irritable bowel syndrome | Kidney stones | Neuromas (nerve overgrowth and scarring after injury) | Plantar fasciitis (pain in the heel and foot) | Shingles | Sports injuries | Tendinopathy (inflammation and/or swelling of the tendon) | Torticollis (head tilted to one side) | Visceral-referred pain | Wound healing
For Burn Healing: Burns can be very painful and scar in the healing process. FSM increases the healing time over 50% and reduces scarring. We advise daily treatment to complete the healing process.
For Sports Recovery: Sports injuries and healing post operatively involve inflammation, pain and tissue damage. FSM resolves and heals tissue at a cellular level; this is why professional athletes have been using FSM for two decades to treat injuries and return to play more quickly.
FSM treatment is non-invasive and painless. The currents used in FSM are so low that the patient often does not feel them. In fact, the current is so safe that the electrodes can be used in a bathtub. During FSM treatment, patients may notice certain effects, such as warmth and softening of affected tissues. After treatment, patients may have momentary lightheaded, dizziness or nausea, though it is rare. These symptoms are typically related to a detoxification reaction, which is considered part of treatment efficacy.

These IV nutritional therapies and hydration services are intended for individuals with nutritional deficiencies related to poor absorption, food sensitivities, inflammatory bowel disease, chronic illness and medication related deficiencies.
These therapies and services include the following:
◦ EDTA Chelation
◦ Energy Formula
◦ Magnesium and Electrolytes
◦ Meyer’s Cocktail
◦ NAD (Nicotinamide)
◦ Normal Saline and Lactated Ringer for Rehydration
◦ Vitamin C
Read below to learn details about each available treatment (listed in alphabetical order).
We recommend this type of IV therapy for patients with underlying cardiovascular disease to reduce their chance of recurrent heart attack, based on the NIH TACT-1 trial data. Diabetic patients reduce their risk of recurrent heart attack by 40%.
There is data that shows that lead, mercury and other heavy metals damage the internal wall of arteries and veins that lead to cholesterol plaque, thus blocking blood flow. EDT chelation helps remove these heavy metals. It can serve as an effective option for those with symptoms related to heavy metal toxicity after testing and evaluations.
We conduct two types of chelation:
◦ Classic chelation for heart patients; and
◦ Rapid chelation for patients with heavy metal toxicity/burden.
Our energy formula uses NAD, Vitamin B12 and Glutathione to supply the cell’s mitochondria with essentials chemicals for its function. NAD therapy can restore cellular health to significantly slow the aging process, promote neurological function, improve energy and boost general health.
Glutathione is an antioxidant that’s produced in the body. It is used in many different areas of the body. It is used to help your liver detoxification pathways. It is used to remove free radicals that lead to cancers. It is used by the body in the eye to help the immune system function to prevent the eye from sun damage (i.e., cataracts).
Glutathione is depleted in people who have chronic diseases such as autoimmune diseases, cancer, adrenal fatigue and rheumatologic conditions. IV therapy helps to restore glutathione levels quickly. Under 20 minutes for treatment.
Mag and electrolytes can benefit patients with as COPD. Magnesium also relaxes muscles around our larger airways to alleviate systems in acute asthma and COPD exacerbation. It can also be used to alleviate migraine headaches.
Lower dose of vitamin C with B6 and magnesium for overall health, energy and illness prevention. This combination can supports the immune system and adrenal glands. When Vitamin C is combined with Vitamin B, it helps with the production of cortisol, which is the hormone that is the master controller of your body systems.
Nicotinamide is one of the necessary molecules in making ATP, which makes energy for all cells. NAD IV therapy helps increase overall energy and helps resolve chronic fatigue. In animal studies, NAD helps reduce age-related diseases. There are also small studies that show it does reduce symptoms of Parkinson’s and depression. Please note: NAD therapy must be given slowly over three hours.
Vitamin C can help your body fight and prevent infection. Adrenal fatigue, or to boost immune system and prevent sickness for example when traveling; support body’s nutritional needs for those going through cancer treatment.
