The most common nutritive IV therapy is the Myer’s Cocktail, an intravenous vitamin nutrient supplement, formulated more than 30 years ago by John Myers, MD., a Baltimore physician. This potent solution contains a specially balanced combination of vitamin and minerals. It is given intravenously to aid in the treatment of a range of ailments and increase energy.
How IV Myer’s Cocktail Works:
Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that helps the immune system ward off bacterial and viral infections. It also makes certain metabolic processes work better. Other vitamins or ingredients may be added to the Myer’s Cocktail, depending on the patient’s diagnosis and overall health as well as the condition being treated.
Many people who have benefited from this protocol claim that the intravenous shots of vitamin B12 in the Myer’s Cocktail are even more beneficial than Vitamin B-12 intramuscular injections in restoring their energy and stamina. IV treatments are more effective than oral therapy for increasing blood levels of nutrients.
