The Myers’ cocktail is an intravenous vitamin and mineral infusion that was developed my John Myers, M.D. in the 1970′s. It contains vitamin C, B vitamins, calcium and magnesium in a base of sterile water. There can be slight variations in a Myers’ cocktail. In fact, our nutrient packet Myers’ cocktail are special because they contain active B12 called methycobalamin where many use a cheaper and inferior B12 called cyanocobalamin. Additionally our Myers’ cocktail does not just contain B Complex, we use highly absorbable and high quality Vitamins B6, B5, B Complex, and methylcobalamin (B12), magnesium, calcium, Vitamin C and sterile water. By administering the vitamins directly into the bloodstream it bypasses the gastrointestinal tract and allows for maximal absorption and utilization of the nutrients.
Studies show that a modified “Myers’ cocktail has been found to be effective against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, and upper respiratory tract infections.
What our patients can tell you is that is can help improve symptoms of fatigue, pain, anxiety, depression, brain fog, low mood, joint pain, insomnia, hormonal issues like PMS and menopausal symptoms and an increased tendency to get sick with colds and flus. Why can it be such a dramatic tool to rejuvenate you when you are depleted, tired and burned out?
One reason is that is can restore your adrenal function. The adrenal glands modulated sleep and wakes cycles and inflammation in your body and affect your energy. Long term stress can deplete your adrenals and cause a down regulation of function. This may not lead to a disease but makes lead to fatigue, brain fog, depleted mood, joint pain and basically feeling bad even if your blood work says you are “normal.”
Another reason IV Myers’ are important is that many people are not getting the valuable and much needed nutrients due to poor absorption leading to nutritional deficiencies in the body.
Additionally, Myers’ cocktail is also a very effective treatment to boost the immune system. If you have a cold or flu these IVs can help you to recover much faster or even prevent the onset if others around you are sick. So it’s a great treatment to consider during cold and flu season.
The Myers’ cocktail IV is very safe and generally well tolerated. The frequency of treatment varies according to the individual’s needs and is determined by you and your doctor.
