MBSC’s IV nutritional therapy gets nutrients right where they are needed!
You may have heard of IV nutritional therapy and wondered if it could help you. This treatment is also known as a “Myers’ Cocktail” after Baltimore physician John Myers.
While this is not a definitive treatment for all diseases, it has the potential to affect many different medical conditions because it tends to enhance the body’s immune response, decreases inflammation and repairs cells.
Some of the conditions for which it has been found useful include:
- Chronic fatigue
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Connective tissue disorders
- Autoimmune disorders
- Chronic allergies and sinusitis
- Acute or chronic infections
- Migraine or severe headaches
- Neurological disorder
- Drug and alcohol abuse
- Mood disorders
- Coronary artery disease
- Hepatitis/liver failure
- Poor wound healing
- Post-operative care
- Post-gastric bypass or other weight loss surgeries
This therapy may also help those who are unable to swallow vitamin pills, who have a history of digestive problems and who want to improve their overall health.
IV therapy ingredients include several vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and trace minerals. These vitamins and minerals can certainly be taken orally, and many patients do with success. However, in bypassing the digestive tract, basically 100 percent of the treatment’s ingredients go directly to the cells that need them. Plus, IV treatment delivers concentrations that would be impossible with oral doses.
Most IV treatment regimens involve one infusion per week over a period of time that depends on the severity of your symptoms, your condition and your tolerance of the treatment.
Many ask if they get enough vitamins and minerals from eating a healthy diet. Eating well is always advised, but today’s typical food supplies grow in nutrient-poor soil and may be harvested long before they get to you because they must be shipped over great distances. These situations greatly reduce the nutrients in these foods.
Eating organically grown meats, fruits, vegetables and dairy products can help, because in these products you are not getting the pesticides, hormones and other additives that can create even more problems. However, be careful to wash the organic produce carefully as they often contain more bugs.
