The use of intravenous (IV) vitamins as part of treatment of various medical problems was pioneered by John Myers, MD from Baltimore Maryland.
Many physicians and health care practitioners today, including those of us at Choices, are using a modified version of his IV regimen.
Conditions which have been shown to improve with the use of the Myers Cocktails include, but aren’t limited to:
Fatigue, including Chronic Fatigue
Acute or chronic muscle spasm
Acute or chronic asthma
Acute viral illness and acute infections
Acute disc herniation
The Myers cocktails are usually administered 1-3 times per week. There are 3 basic levels of the infusions: Basic, Medium and Mega. The main differences are in the amounts of Magnesium, Calcium and Vitamin C. However, depending upon your specific requirements and needs, your provider may alter some of the other ingredients. The length of time needed for an infusion to be administered varies from 15 minutes with the Basic, 1 hour with the Medium and 2 hours with the Mega.
The modified “Myers Cocktail” consists of Magnesium Calcium Hydroxocobalamin (B12) Pyridoxine (B6) Dexpanthenol (B5) Vitamin B Complex (thiamine, niacinamide, riboflavin, dexpanthenol, pyridoxine), Vitamin C Mixed in Sterile Water Blood serum concentration levels of these nutrients administered intravenously, surpasses those obtained by both oral and intramuscular administrations. The most common side effects are flushing or feeling hot, vitamin taste in the mouth, and achiness at the infusion site.
ALSO AVAILABLE: GLUTATHIONE AND ALPHA LIPOIC ACID
