Intravenous Nutrient Therapy, also known as the “Myers’ Cocktail”, is a high dose of vitamins and minerals, which includes magnesium, calcium, B-vitamins (including B12), and Vitamin C. This nutrient “cocktail” is given by a slow IV push, or slow infusion, to achieve concentrations of nutrients that are not attainable through other methods.
Intravenous Nutrient Therapy is a fast way to get the critical nutrients and hydration that you body needs into your system. The “Myers’ Cocktail” has been effective in treating acute illness (cold and flu), migraines, fatigue and more. By providing nutrients through an IV, the body receives them at a much higher level so it doesn’t have to depend on the body’s digestive system to absorb them. The nutrients go straight from the bloodstream to the cells that need them, like your immune system. This treatment will provide your cells with all the nutrients that it needs to function at its’ best and help you recover more quickly from health problems.
What is “Myers’ Cocktail”?
The “Myers’ Cocktail” was named after and invented by a Maryland physician named John Myers who mixed a multitude of ingredients together to help refresh peoples energy levels. John would also use nutrients injected into the bloodstream to treat chronic conditions such as:
- acute asthma attacks
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- acute muscle spasm
- upper respiratory tract infections
- chronic sinusitis
- seasonal allergies
- cardiovascular disease
- prevent illness
- help recover from an illness
What to Expect
This cocktail includes essential vitamins and minerals that help increase blood concentration. Vitamins include B vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium and other nutrients depending on the illness and condition of the person. “Myers’ Cocktail” is given through IV Therapy which in inserted into a vein and takes up to 30 minutes to complete. For the best results, “Myers’ Cocktail” should be given 1-2 time per week and recommended to have a treatment every week depending on your condition. Side effects can be rare, but may include irritation to the area and vein where the IV was injected.
Benefits of “Myers’ Cocktail”
Receiving the “Myers’ Cocktail” as an IV therapy gives greater blood concentration than when given orally. Because these nutrients are given intravenously, or through IV Therapy, “Myers’ Cocktail” bypasses any digestive problems including bloating and indigestion. With the cocktail being given intravenously, those with digestive problems will not see nutrients being used up quickly, instead the nutrients will be used more efficiently and will leave patients with more energy that could last for days or weeks.
