IV Nutrition Therapy is a special cocktail of nutrients delivered intravenously to alleviate a variety of ailments. John Myers, MD, developed the first IV Nutrient formula that is known today as the Myers Cocktail. Myers Cocktail is a mixture of magnesium, calcium, B vitamins and vitamin C. The process of injecting the cocktail directly into the bloodstream gives safe and instant results.
What it does
Myers Cocktail is very effective in treating fatigue and lethargy. The mixture is also said to be effective in the treatment of asthma, migraine headaches, depression, upper respiratory tract infections, fibromyalgia, as well as a wide assortment of medical conditions. IV Nutrition Therapy is said to be beneficial for anyone, of any age. Many practitioners prefer the intravenous injection over oral administration because higher vitamin levels can enter the bloodstream via this method. The health benefits of the body being instantly saturated with nutrients are innumerable.
The treatment is very popular with celebrities and is said to have promising anti-aging benefits. The number of treatments needed varies from person to person, with a specialized treatment plan based upon the individual and his or her specific ailments. Chronic conditions may necessitate monthly treatments.
Myers Cocktail contains only vitamins and minerals with recognized health benefits. The potential for side effects is low but include:
- Lowered blood pressure and or dizziness (if injected too rapidly)
- A heat sensation often caused by exposure to magnesium
- Small risk of infection at the injection site
Developed as part of an integrated therapies program in 1971 by Dr. John Myers, the Myers Cocktail is reported to be very effective in promoting well-being among patients. Dr. Myers died in 1984 and many who had found symptom relief success with the Myers Cocktail sought out other practitioners for continuation of their treatment.
