The Myers Cocktail of IV nutrition contains magnesium, calcium, B vitamins (including B12), and vitamin C, given intravenously in higher doses than can be taken orally. This treatment can benefit patients by boosting their immune system, reducing fatigue, and relieving symptoms of some chronic illnesses, such as asthma and fibromyalgia.
The standard American diet isn’t high on nutrients and even some people with nutrient-rich diets may be unable to sufficiently absorb nutrients through food or oral supplements. The Myers cocktail of IV nutrition bypasses the digestive system to deliver key nutrients directly to the bloodstream.
Patients with chronic illness see the most benefit with regular infusions, while other individuals may benefit from only periodic treatments during times of acute illness. The mix of vitamins and nutrients have recognized nutritional benefits and low potential for serious side effects. As with an IV treatment, some risk for irritation at the IV site does exist.

An intravenous vitamin implantation is said to improve many health issues, in addition to decreasing fatigue, assisting with regular hypersensitivities, and lessening the side effects of fibromyalgia and asthma.
The Myers’ Cocktail is named for the late John Myers, M.D., a Maryland doctor who utilized intravenous infusions of supplements to treat numerous health conditions. As of now, the supplement mixed drink has been advanced by Alan Gaby, M.D., a doctor who regularly expounds on sustenance in prescription. He has treated a large number of patients with the IV Nutrition Therapy Myers’ Cocktail for many years. He noticed that some health conditions that responded well to IV Nutrition Therapy included asthma, headaches, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, upper respiratory infections, sinusitis, and cardiovascular problems. He also noticed improvement in athletes.
The Myers’ Cocktail works by injecting vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream. This bypasses that which can be accomplished when supplementing orally. For instance, Vitamin C given intravenously has been found to be 50 times more effective than oral doses.
The basis is that numerous illnesses and conditions are tied to stomach related illnesses. For example, bloating and acid reflux may not retain as much of the supplements needed to return them to good health. Likewise, numerous ailments make the body utilize supplements much faster, or require more medicine to return to good health. Using IV Nutrition Therapy delivers the supplements directly into the bloodstream for a more immediate effect. The levels in the circulatory system are increased so that the supplements are “cajoled” into the cells and mitochondria, where they are dynamic.
Some patients feel a jolt of energy lasting days or weeks. With fibromyalgia, diminished pain can be seen. In some conditions such as rheumatoid joint inflammation and ulcerative colitis, the mixture gets fundamental supplements into the cells.
A small catheter is inserted into a vein, and the nutrition is given gradually over a period of 20-30 minutes. Negative reactions are rare and quite often are limited to soreness around the vein area.
