History of the Myers’ Cocktail, an IV nutrient therapy.
Dr. John Myers, MD of Baltimore, in the 1950’s, designed a simple intravenous push containing calcium, magnesium, selenium, vitamin C,and B vitamins that has been used to treat a number of conditions that can’t be mentioned here. Since that time, naturopathic doctors who practice IV therapies have used these therapies often to treat conditions we feel will benefit from this potent nutrient therapy. It is a quick therapy that usually doesn’t take more than 15 minutes to administer and rarely has side-effects. This formula can be customized to suit patients needs and other nutrients are often added depending upon symptoms involved. We have been administering Myers’ pushes and IV drips for over 25 years and can customize formulas for patients who we feel need the therapy. It bypasses problems with absorption so allows for increased nutrient absorption.
Vitamins and Minerals in the Myers Cocktail Include:
- Vitamin C
- B vitamins
When one uses a Myers’ Cocktail, they may experience a slight metallic taste. This is due to the minerals passing through the palate. In addition, some find their chest or face is slightly flushed, while others say they feel this flush in the legs.
