Intravenous (IV) hydration therapy is a specialized wellness treatment resource that we offer for our patients at Virginia Vein & Wellness Center. One of these therapies is known as a Myers’ Cocktail, a vitamin mixture designed to promote health and well-being. Known for its versatility, this treatment can help overcome a number of health conditions, as well as help you maintain steady health if you don’t necessarily have any pre-existing conditions. Here’s what you need to know about it.
What Is A Myers’ Cocktail?
The Myers’ Cocktail is named for IV treatment pioneer Dr. John Myers, who used nutrient injections to help treat patients with chronic conditions. This treatment is based on the techniques he established in his work. It promotes wellness in the body by providing a supplement of essential nutrients in large amounts, which increases their concentration in the bloodstream. This is particularly important for people with digestive disorders or illnesses that affect digestion, as the food and dietary supplements they consume may not be digested properly, and therefore may not absorb well into the body.
The idea behind this treatment is based in part on the wellness philosophy that chronic conditions, along with overall wellness, may be effectively treated by promoting proper digestive and intestinal health. In bypassing the digestion process through the use of an IV, nutrients can be directly delivered to the bloodstream and the cells. This can accomplish a high level of nutrient absorption, in some cases over 50 percent more than could be achieved through oral supplementation. Some nutrients that may be included in a Myers’ Cocktail include multiple types of B Vitamins, Vitamin C, Calcium and Magnesium. They provide a boost that the body can use to keep itself going in spite of illness or heal more quickly than usual.
What Can A Myers’ Cocktail Treat?
A Myers’ Cocktail can be used to treat both long-term and short-term illness. It’s known for being able to help people overcome hangovers, exhaustion and dehydration. Also used as a natural remedy, it can assist in treating long-term health conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, arthritis, ulcerative colitis and migraines.
The nutrient boost gained from a Myers’ Cocktail also provides a burst of energy to the patient, which helps them to think more clearly and work more efficiently. The effects of this treatment can last for days or weeks, depending on the patient, and can not only increase energy, but also reduce inflammation and pain, which makes it ideal for treating chronic illnesses in which pain has become a part of daily life.
