Myers Cocktail IV

The body has the wonderful ability to heal itself and there have been numerous studies supporting the fact that we can improve the healing process with intravenous nutrition (IV Nutrition). Many diseases, as well as inflammation, cause the body to use nutrients at a faster rate and to require higher amounts for proper healing. 

Myers Cocktail

IV Nutrition: 

  • Efficiently provides the nutrients that are being used up quickly by your body that is fighting an illness or dealing with inflammation. 
  • Allows you to maintain optimal health and assist in illness prevention
  • Administers needed fluids, vitamins, minerals, and other needed nutrients directly to your blood stream.
  • Your blood stream can now efficiently get what is needed to the tissues and cells, basically jump starting your healing process if you are ill or optimizing your health if you are “well”. 
  • Bypasses your digestive tract, which in most people is dysfunctional and not absorbing nutrients as well as it should. 
  • Increases your tissue oxygen concentrations 
  • Stimulate the immune system 
  • Aide in the removal of toxic substances and free radicals from your body. 

Myers Cocktail IV Benefits

  • Improve your immune system
  • Helps you fight and prevent infections

The Meyers Cocktail is jam-packed with so many vitamins that it helps with a variety of health-related illnesses. Vitamins like

  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin B12 and B Complex
  • Vitamin C

Are all condensed into a single IV bag and will go directly into your blood stream. This allows your body to reap the benefits of these vitamins without delay. 

Oral Supplement vs IV Myers Cocktail Therapy

Vitamin C given intravenously has been found to reach blood concentrations more than 50 times greater than what can be achieved when given orally. Vitamin C has been well researched and has been shown to be quite effective at boosting our immune system’s ability to fight infections.

Some patients feel an energy boost lasting days or weeks. In the case of fibromyalgia, decreased pain can be observed. Patients who get sick often with infections may find an improved immune response, with less susceptibility to viral illnesses. A small IV catheter is inserted into a vein, and the infusion is given slowly over 15-30 minutes. 

Side Effects of IV Myers Cocktail Therapy

Side effects are remarkably rare and almost always are limited to local irritation of the vein. The most common sensations are heat and flushing (a magnesium effect), and the taste of vitamins soon after the infusion begins. 

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a potent antioxidant and can be given by itself as an IV infusion or along with the Myers cocktail. Glutathione is excellent in assisting the body in detoxification and healing. For fighting illnesses, we find the combination of the Glutathione and Myers cocktail to be quite effective. They can be given with the same IV needle, there is no need for an additional needle stick. 

How Long Does IV Myers Nutrition Therapy Take?

The entire IV time for both the Myers Cocktail and Glutathione is 20 to 30 minutes and about 10-15 minutes for just one of the IVs. There are also some patients who require an even higher dose of Vitamin C than what is provided in the Myers cocktail. For those patients, we do offer a high dose Vitamin C IV. This IV does take more time, typically 1-2 hours. It is important that high dose Vitamin C be given more slowly in order to preserve your veins and maximize benefits.
