Meyers Cocktail Intense Vitamin Therapy

It Could Work for You

Meyers Cocktail Intense Vitamin TherapyMention the word “cocktail,” and most people think of the barroom variety. But if you suffer from chronic pain, anxiety, joint discomfort, allergies, high blood pressure or a host of other common maladies — or if you just want a way to maintain optimum health — there’s another kind of cocktail you should get to know.

It’s called a Meyers cocktail, named for its inventor, John Meyers, M.D., a Johns Hopkins physician who developed it in the 1970s. The cocktail is actually a powerful combination of essential vitamins and minerals, including important antioxidants, which Meyers discovered can help patients battle a number of ailments, including;

  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • High blood pressure
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia
  • Anxiety and stress
  • Depression
  • Migraine and tension headaches
  • Leaky gut
  • PMS
  • Weakened immune system
  • Asthma and allergies
  • Acute infections

In addition to helping patients fight illness and disease, Meyers discovered the cocktail can also work wonders for patients with good health, helping them to detoxify so they can achieve a better balance of healthy nutrients, boost their immune systems, improve their metabolisms, and provide vital energy throughout their bodies.

IV Vitamins

The Meyers cocktail is administered slowly over a 20- to 30-minute period through an intravenous (IV) line, so the body has time to absorb and distribute the nutrients as they enter the bloodstream.

One of the primary benefits of IV vitamin infusion is that because the vitamins and minerals enter the bloodstream directly, they bypass the digestive system, where absorption problems can interfere with the body’s ability to access and use the nutrients. People who suffer from even minor digestion-related issues, such as occasional gastritis, can benefit from this more direct approach to vitamin delivery.

Better Overall Health

Even when your digestive system is perfectly balanced, vitamin infusion prevents your digestive system from shedding what it perceives as excess nutrients, ensuring that you get the higher levels of nutrients your body needs to repair and restore itself.
