Myer’s cocktail is a form of holistic treatment that entails the intravenous administration of the cocktail in order to treat illnesses and disorders. Myers cocktail was first discovered by John Meyers, a Baltimore physician. The cocktail is thus named after this physician. When Myers died, he did not leave any publications for his work. After his death, his patients continued to see Alan R Gaby, MD to get this treatment. Alan has since been one of the greatest pioneers for this holistic therapy. The therapy has since been used in the administration of vitamins and minerals to patients who are unable to ingest the orally. Additionally, it is also used in the treatment of specific diseases and conditions. Some of the illnesses treated by Myer’s cocktail include asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression and anxiety, sinusitis, colds and allergies.

Other Holistic Treatments
Many holistic therapies existed before Myer’s cocktail, and many more will continue to be developed so as to improve the quality of life. These holistic treatments aim in treating the whole being rather than just one illness. They believe in treating the person rather than the illness.
