IV Therapy Q & A

What's a Myer's Cocktail?

A Myer's Cocktail is a solution developed by Dr. John Myers who practiced in Baltimore, Maryland. The cocktail is a mixture of several different nutrients that are administered through an IV. The nutrients go directly into the blood stream, they aren't damaged by the harsh environment of the digestive tract, nor do they lose potency over time. Once the cocktail is in the blood stream, the body can utilize all the nutrients completely.

The Myer's Cocktail is part of treatment plans for chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma, fibromyalgia, and many other chronic conditions that deprive the body of its ability to function effectively. As an IV therapy, the Myer's Cocktail offers the maximum benefit of every nutrient it contains.

How does IV therapy provide immune support?

IV therapy provides immediate and effective immune support. Vitamin C is one of the most powerful of all the immune boosters. When administered intravenously, it provides immediate benefit to the body and helps to strengthen your immune system on almost every level.

Not only does Vitamin C helped to fight infection, but it also boosts brain function and keeps the entire body function at a higher level. Mixtures like the Myer's Cocktail provide a variety of nutrients your immune system needs to keep your body strong and able to resist the contaminants and other invaders that can cause your health to deteriorate.

What nutrients can be dispensed with IV therapy?

Almost any nutrient can be introduced into your body through an intravenous system.

Vitamin C and Vitamin B12 are two of the most common. Your body needs both in specific amounts, and when levels fall below normal levels, your health begins to suffer.
