The Myer's Cocktail is named for the late John Myers, M.D., a Maryland physician who used intravenous injections of nutrients to treat many chronic conditions. Thousands of patients have been treated with Myer's Cocktail over many years and conditions which have been found to respond well include acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies and cardiovascular disease as well as diminished athletic performance.
Our Myer's "cocktail" includes magnesium, calcium, 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.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Myer's Cocktail works by increasing 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 "coaxed" into the cells so that energy them. Many patients feel an energy boost lasting days or weeks.
WHO NEEDS IT?
Dr. Alan Gaby's clinical experience with over 15,000 infusions of Myer's Cocktail shows clinical effectiveness against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (incuding Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), Fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasms, colds, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies, chronic depression/ anxiety and other disorders.
Patients with "leaky gut" are at increase risk of auto-immune thyroid disease,vrheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis and other chronic conditions. IN these cases, the infusion helps get necessary nutrients into the cells. Patients who get sick often, travel frequently or work in jobs where they are exposed to illnesses (like school teachers, daycare and hospital workers) may find an improvement in tender points, pain, depression and quality of life directly following treatment with sustained improvement even after four weeks from the last infusion.
WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS AND HOW OFTEN CAN I GET THE INFUSION?
Side effects are rare and almosts always are limited to local irritation of th vein. The most common sensations are heat, flushing from the magnesium and the taste of viamins soon after the infusion begins.
The cocktail may be given 1-2 times per week and beneficial effects are usually felt by the fourth visit. Many patients with chronic conditions choose to continue the infusions every 1-4 weeks or when they feel their energy slipping.
