What is Intravenous Micronutrient Therapy?
Intravenous micronutrient therapy (IVMT), also referred to as IV nutrient therapy, is the administration of nutrients directly into the bloodstream via the vein. The ‘Myers Cocktail’ is a formula pioneered by the late Dr. John Myers, MD which consists of intravenous vitamins and minerals. Many of his patients who found relief with these infusions sought continued treatments from Alan R. Gaby, MD, a renowned nutritional medicine expert who became one of the major proponents of this treatment.
Working with these patients, Dr. Gaby found that Dr. Myers had been successful in treating a surprisingly large number of clinical conditions with this nutrient infusion. The “Cocktail” includes magnesium, calcium, B-vitamins (including B12), and Vitamin C and is given by a slow IV push or as an IV infusion to achieve concentrations of nutrients that are not obtainable with oral administration.
The “Myers’ Cocktail,” has been found to be effective against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders.
