Our Myers’ “cocktail” includes magnesium, calcium, B-complex (Thiamine, Riboflavin, Pyroxidine HCI, Dexpanthenol, Niaminacide, Hydroxocobalamin) and Vitamin C and is given by a slow intravenous administration (IV) infusion to achieve concentrations of nutrients that are not obtainable with oral administration.
Conditions which have been found to respond well include:
- Acute asthma attacks
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Acute muscle spasm
- Upper respiratory tract infections
- Chronic sinusitis
- Seasonal allergies
- Cardiovascular disease
- Diminished athletic performance
How does it work?
The Myers’ Cocktail works by helping to increase the blood concentration of several essential vitamins and minerals beyond what can be absorbed with oral supplementation. The idea is that many illnesses and conditions are associated with digestive disturbances such as bloating, indigestion and food sensitivities and that people with such conditions may not absorb many of the nutrients needed to obtain optimal health. Further, inflammation, the basis of all disease states—chronic and acute—may cause the body to use nutrients at a faster rate or to require higher amounts for proper healing. With IV infusion, the blood levels of the nutrients are temporarily increased so that the nutrients are “coaxed” into the cells and frequently into the powerhouse of the cell, the mitochondria, where they are active. This boost often “jump-starts” the cells so that energy is produced more efficiently in them. Many patients feel an energy boost lasting days or weeks.
