It’s theorized that chronic illness may be the result of nutrient deficiency, specifically in the space between cells and tissues (interstitial space/extra-cellular matrix). This deficiency occurs when your body’s digestive system is unable to properly absorb vitamins and minerals.
Patients with digestive issues who cannot absorb these necessary nutrients from food or oral supplements may benefit from Myer’s Cocktail IV therapy.
IV Therapy delivers nutrients directly into your bloodstream, avoiding the digestive system entirely. By doing so, this intravenous (IV) solution boosts your immune system and increases your energy. Myer’s Cocktail can be used to help your overall health, including your cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems.
The Myers Cocktail is a solution of sterile water, vitamins, and minerals delivered intravenously (into your vein).
It was created by Dr. John Myers (whose work was continued posthumously by his apprentice Dr. Alan R. Gaby) to treat chronic illness caused by poor nutrient absorption via the digestive tract.
The infusion may be especially beneficial for patients who have difficulty digesting food or who have:
The vitamins and minerals in the Myer’s Cocktail can include:
In addition to it combating free radicals and preventing cell damage, this antioxidant vitamin is antiviral and antibacterial. Vitamin C may help treat infections, heart disease, and adrenal fatigue.
B Vitamins (B6 and B12)
Your body requires vitamin B6 to absorb vitamin B12. Vitamin B6 aids in hormone balance and neurotransmitter creation, while vitamin B12 affects cell metabolism. Both vitamin B6 and B12 may help treat depression.
Magnesium helps to regulate energy metabolism and blood sugar levels. This mineral is especially good for treating symptoms of fibromyalgia and may help treat anxiety, migraines, and asthma.
Calcium does more for your body beyond supporting your teeth and bones. It plays an important role in nerve function, hormone release, and muscle movement. Calcium may help treat muscle cramping and asthma.
The Myer’s Cocktail provides the body with the nutrients it needs to combat illness.
The Cocktail is most commonly used to treat fibromyalgia. Its magnesium can reduce symptoms of fibromyalgia associated with low magnesium, such as chronic sleep deprivation, fatigue, and muscle cramps.
The many other conditions it’s used to treat include:
The Myer’s Cocktail may also help detox, balance hormone levels, and rehydrate you after exercise.
Additionally, when Myers’ Cocktail’s vitamins and minerals enter your cell’s mitochondria, they temporarily improve the production of cellular energy.
Dr. Borenstein will work with you to determine if the Myer’s Cocktail is right for you. Tell him if you are potassium or magnesium deficient, as well as what conditions and medications you have. Dr. Borenstein will also discuss with you about how much of the Myers’ Cocktail you will need, the required frequency of your infusions, and when you can expect to see results.
You can relax when the Cocktail is delivered painlessly and slowly into a vein in your arm. You may experience a warm sensation throughout your body and the taste of vitamins. A slow infusion over a long period of time helps prevent lightheadedness and extreme warmth from the magnesium.
Your infusion might last for 30 minutes or longer and might be administered 1-2 times per week. Support your body by eating food within 3 hours after your infusion. The results of your infusion may last for days or months, depending on the condition treated.
The Myer’s Cocktail painlessly provides nutrients that your body needs for healthy function. Meet with Dr. Borenstein at Manhattan Integrative Medicine to determine how it can help you. Call (212) 262-2412 or contact us here to schedule your IV therapy today.
