A Myers’ Cocktail infusion is a specially formulated vitamin mix that is given through IV therapy. IV therapy delivers liquids into the body such as medication, saline and hydration fluids or vitamin cocktails like the Myers’ Cocktail, directly into the vein. IV drips have been used in medicine since the 19th century, but it was only recently that vitamin drip infusions were developed and became widely used to aid in managing chronic diseases and chronic pain.
The Myers’ Cocktail infusion works by using taking a blend of concentrated vitamins and minerals then directly distributing them into the bloodstream. This direct IV of vitamins and minerals bypasses the digestive system allowing us to create a concentration in your body that cannot be matched by merely adding vitamins or supplements to your diet. Increasing the amount of nutrition your body can absorb from the vitamins and minerals through the bloodstream promotes proper healing and reduces inflammation.
Some patients even feel an energy boost after having the infusion from the extra vitamins and minerals immediately that are usually absent from their diet. While Myers’ Cocktail is the general term for these vitamin and mineral enriched formulas, each mix is personalized for your needs and your physiological make-up by our team of wellness experts.
How IV Therapy Works for Myers’ Cocktails Infusions
For some patients, a vitamin and mineral test is done first to determine what blend will be best for IV therapy. Once a cocktail has been designed, we will identify the frequency of dosage needed for the Myers’ Cocktail Infusions to have the most significant impact on managing your pain. For many patients, we begin with weekly infusions for six to eight weeks. Once patients have completed the initial treatment, injections are scheduled on an as-needed basis to keep the levels of vitamins and minerals in the body high.
The treatments are given right here in our office and take roughly one hour to complete. The procedure will begin with one of our staff placing an IV in a vein in your arm. This IV is the point of entry for your Myers’ Cocktail Infusion. The Myers’ Cocktail will be hung on a medication pole and hooked into your IV line. Some patients report feeling heat or a flush in their body as the IV begins, which occurs when magnesium is replenished into your body.
Giving your body the nutrients it needs can help reduce the pain you may be experiencing as a result of other medical issues or injuries. Some patients have suffered from chronic pain caused by conditions such as fibromyalgia for years, and have reported reduced pain and a higher quality of life after just a few treatments at our office. Because many diseases and illness result in a depletion of the necessary vitamins your body needs, Myers’ Cocktails work wonders in replenishing your body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to function.
No one deserves to live in pain as a result of a chronic medical condition. Myer’s Cocktails can help you take control of your life, reduce your pain, and improve your overall health by getting the nutrients and vitamins your body needs.
