Vitamin IV Therapy

We offer several Therapeutic IV Therapies.

Myer’s Cocktail – most popular

The Myer’s cocktail is named after the late John Myers, MD. This vitamin nutrient supplement that was formulated more than 30 years for promoting healing and restoring energy and stamina. The Myers’ Cocktail can be effective at increasing blood levels of nutrients and may improve the transport of nutrients from the blood into the cells.

Magnesium is the key

Magnesium is the most important ingredient in the Myer’s cocktail and it lets the blood vessels relax and reduces any muscle spasm.

Contains: Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin B-5, B-6, B-12 (methylcobalamin), B complex, and Vitamin C.  It also makes certain metabolic processes in work better. Other vitamins or ingredients may be added to the Myers’ Cocktail protocol, depending on the patient’s diagnosis and overall health as well as the condition being treated.

What is the duration of treatment?

Patients vary in the number of treatments needed, but most request infusions one to two times per week. Some patients experience improvement after only one treatment, and many report significant healing by the fourth infusion. People who have chronic conditions may want ongoing treatment of several times per week, or periodically every few weeks to regain their energy.

How can you prepare for the treatment?

It is best to prepare for the IV Therapy by drinking plenty of water and having food in your stomach before you come in the office. Some patients may experience a general flushing feeling, light-headedness and/or a taste of the vitamins.

Is it Vitamin IV therapy safe?

Our staff is very experienced in IV and injection therapies.  Your safety and comfort is at the top of our priorities.  IV therapy is safe, effective, and minimally invasive therapy that is well tolerated by most people. It carries a low risk of serious adverse side effects. If the protocol is administered quickly there may be a sensation of warmth and flushing. This is due to the rapid rise of magnesium. Some patients may also have the taste of vitamins in their mouth shortly after they are given the infusion.

Note: Patients taking digoxin  or potassium-depleting drugs should be cautious and should inform the staff that they are using these medications before beginning the IV protocol.

List of Ingredients and benefits:
B1 (thiamine)
This vitamin plays an important role in converting food into energy as well as boosting your immune system.
B2 (riboflavin)
This vitamin operates as an anti-oxidant so fights free radicals which can cause accelerated skin aging.
B3 (niacin)
Niacin contributes to energy production and can reduce tiredness and fatigue. It also plays a role in skin health.
B6 (pyridoxine)
Useful in maintaining your digestive system which has an impact on overall health.
B7 (biotin)
Good for the health and renewal of your skin, nails and hair.
B9 (folate, folic acid)
Well-known as an important pregnancy vitamin as it assists in embryo development, particularly in preventing neurological birth defects.
B12 (methylcobalamin)
This is an important vitamin that plays a number of essential roles in the body, from cell division and red blood cell formation to normal function of the immune system and reduces tiredness and fatigue.
potentially preventing a whole range of health conditions, as well as working as an anti-ageing agent.

Vitamin C is an anti-inflammatory and potent antioxidant that helps the immune system ward off bacterial and viral infections.  It is required for your body to make serotonin and other neurotransmitters and helps in some neurological diseases.  In some cases it can be beneficial as an adjunct therapy to some cancer treatment. Vitamin C has an important place in the treatment and prevention of a variety of symptoms and diseases, such as:

  • Cold and Flu – shortens both severity and duration of illness
  • Wound Healing – very useful for post-cosmetic surgery cases
  • Depression – Vitamin C helps raise neurotransmitter levels
  • Fatigue – revitalizes, boosts energy; best in combination with B-complex vitamins
  • Allergies – Vitamin C has antihistamine properties
  • Certain neurological conditions

Calcium

Calcium is everywhere in the body, doing invaluable work keeping the body in optimum condition. It is required for strong bones and teeth, necessary for the blood clotting function and helps to keep your heart healthy. If deficient in calcium from diet, the body takes what it needs from your bone reserves which can lead to serious health problems. Calcium works closely with magnesium as they balance each other out and both are necessary for good health.

Cysteine
An amino acid that works as an antioxidant, cysteine slows down the aging process by fighting free radicals that damage the body. It is one of the three amino acids that make up glutathione, known as the superhero antioxidant. Cysteine’s many benefits include producing healthy skin and hair and boosting the immune system.

Glutamine
Glutamine is an amino acid that makes up the powerful antioxidant glutathione, but also has many important functions of its own, such as regulating blood PH, removing waste products, as well as being an important building block in the production of muscle tissue. Its benefits include boosting the immune system and strengthening the intestinal system.

Glutathione (GSH)
This molecule, made up of the amino acids cysteine, glycine and glutamine, is produced naturally by the body and is usually recycled. However, when the body’s toxic load is too great – a problem that is on the rise – our levels can become depleted. The benefits of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, are becoming increasingly recognized, as it fights the spread of free radicals that cause such damage to the body. Lowered levels of glutathione can lead to a depressed immune system, lowered energy levels and the risk of muscle damage and lengthy recovery times. Studies have clinically proven its value. Glutathione infusion therapy is used as an immune supportive and in the treatment of conditions:

  • Parkinson’s
  • Multiple Sclerosis,
  • Liver diseases (hepatitis, fatty liver, cirrhosis),
  • Cancer supportive therapies.

l-Arginine
An important amino acid that can be produced naturally by the body, but often needs supplementation from diet or intravenous therapy. It performs many vital functions in the body including boosting the immune system, promoting healthy skin, nails and hair with the production of collagen and minimizing stress.

l-Carnitine
Not technically an amino acid but made up from two essential amino acids, carnitine is mainly found in red meat so vegetarians often suffer from a carnitine deficiency. Stress, over-exercising, being overweight and certain malabsorption conditions can also lead to lowered levels of carnitine. Among other functions, carnitine is invaluable for energy production. Other benefits of carnitine include maintaining the immune system and improving the condition of your skin.

Magnesium
One of the key nutrients needed by the body. Usually gained from a varied diet, lower levels of magnesium in food sources mean that more and more people are experiencing a magnesium deficiency. Other factors such as certain medications, stringent dieting, alcohol abuse or gluten intolerance can all contribute to lowered levels of magnesium. Magnesium is essential for energy production and cell turnover. Boosting your levels of magnesium can benefit production of healthy bones, teeth and heart. It can also help relax muscles and thereby lessen the chance of incurring an athletic injury.

Methionine
An essential amino acid, methionine contains sulphur and is used to produce glutathione, cysteine, creatine and taurine. These are necessary for all of the functions of the body, as well as building strong and healthy tissue and eliminating toxins from the body. Methionine also contributes to the production of collagen, strengthening of muscles and an increase in energy levels.

Ornithine
Ornithine is an amino acid which is crucial for the elimination of waste from the body and if this process is compromised it can greatly increase levels of toxicity. This can cause a lack of energy.

Selenium
Selenium is a mineral found in the soil and we gain selenium from a variety of different foods. It is essential for a number of functions in the body from the production of antioxidants and the thyroid hormone and how our metabolism and immune system works. There are a number of health benefits associated with selenium including building a healthy immune system. It can also reduce oxidative stress through the production of antioxidants, which keeps you looking and feeling young.

Taurine
Not actually an amino acid in itself, taurine is a by-product of two other amino acids. Its benefits include boosting energy levels and improving athletic performance and reaction time, making it very popular with athletes. Taurine also works as a highly effective antioxidant.

Zinc
Zinc is vital for many of the functions of the body, particularly cell growth and division which makes zinc essential during pregnancy. The body gets zinc from food sources so a balanced and varied diet is important, but for those with a zinc deficiency, an IV drip can be an effective way to boost levels in the body. Other benefits of zinc include boosting the immune system and building healthy skin, hair and nails.
