IVC & Chronic Illness Symposium

Today we are witnessing a profound shift in the medical care of the masses.

There was a long period in human history when acute trauma and infection meant death.  With the discovery of antibiotics in the mid 1900’s, mankind experienced a brief euphoria.  We thought that the scourge of disease had finally been conquered.  The “one cause, one disease, one pill” model of medical care gave rise to a pharmaceutical revolution that was to end all disease and suffering.

By the end of the 20th century, a mere 50 years later, that delusion came crashing down.  The rapid rise in antibiotic resistance, the mushrooming toxicity of chemotherapeutics, the failure of psychotropic drugs to restore mental health, the demise of the cholesterol and saturated fat theory of heart disease causation and the dying of the statin myth…these and many more medical failures ushered in a plethora of new and more profound epidemics:  world obesity, diabetes, cancer, autism, gastrointestinal chaos, dementia, autoimmune disorders, anxiety and depression, severe viral syndromes, chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia and other chronic pain syndromes that have led to prescription/street narcotic addiction.
Against this backdrop of pervasive human suffering and a widespread future of diminishing medical resources.

This year’s theme is: IVC, Mitochondria and Energy Metabolism

Our speakers systematically address these ROOT CAUSES of the chronic illnesses assailing mankind today.  Join us as we explore treatments that address and correct the root causes of these unexplained and often poorly treated medical epidemics.  Together we can contribute to a new era of REAL HEALTH!

  • What past attendees are saying about the IVC Academy & Symposium

    “Now I see that it was worth traveling 24 hours to come to this conference because what I hear here is telling me that I am thinking in the right direction. That you have to combine different modalities and Intraveneous Vitamin C is the modality that is not developed enough in my part of the world. So I would like to be the agent of change in that respect.”

    Jana Wahl, MD, MSc, MBA, Health Coach
    Kamnik, Slovenia


    “I’m very fortunate to be… attending the Riordan Clinic conference. How Vitamin C is so beneficial to improve the health of our patients. From inflammation, from scurvy; whether it is by infection, or whether it is by cancer, whether it is by toxic overload. This is an excellent meeting and I encourage all physicians, and all care providers to attend this one.”

    Paul Kotturan, MD
    Deerfield Beach, Florida


    “It is really great to be able to listen to guys that have done this for years and be able to learn from their experiences. … If you’re interested in IV therapy, or just want to learn more about it for your patients, a great place to network and be with other people that are there.”

    James Warren, DC, APC
