There are many treatments available to patients suffering from fibromyalgia, however many are not helped by them. One major drug is touting its ability to help manage the nerve pain, but fails to advertise that intense swelling and pain in the legs is a common side effect.
Sufferers seek relief in pain medication, which provides little to no relief, physical therapy, changes in diet, even acupuncture. None of these have provided much relief to sufferers.On-going research is still delving into the cause, effect and hopefully a cure of the mysterious,painful and debilitating disease.
Those suffering from fibromyalgia live in constant pain. Mild to severe pain and stiffness becomes their new normal, and most are open to the idea of something new that shows improvement of the condition. That’s why ears and eye are on the Myers Cocktail infusion, which has been showing promising results in patients suffering from fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia and Vitamin Infusion
For fibromyalgia sufferers, finding relief is like chasing rainbows, but one treatment is showing success, Myers Cocktail. This cocktail doesn’t contain alcohol, or come with a colorful umbrella and a glow straw. It is an intensive vitamin treatment, which is administered intravenously. The Myers Cocktail has been used to help treat a number of conditions including acute asthma, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. A few of the nutrients found in the infusion include:
- vitamin B complex
- vitamin B6
- calcium gluconate
- magnesium chloride
The cocktail also includes vitamin C and calcium pantothenate in diluted Hydrochloric acid. This power packed mixture is given to the patient using an IV push. While clinical studies are few, there has been at least one that examined Myers cocktail, and its effect on fibromyalgia.
How it Works
The infusion is delivered directly into the patients blood, giving the nutrients fast access to cells. As the cocktail makes its way through the circulatory system, it is introduced to cells that take up the vitamins via diffusion across cell membranes. Blood delivers Myers repair molecules to distressed cells, allowing repair and rejuvenation to occur much more quickly.
The large dose of vitamins and minerals act as a healing catalyst, spurring repair at the cellular level. This property is thought to provide patients with relief. Most notable, Myers cocktail side effects are non-existant.
