Intravenous Nutrition

Myers' Cocktail

Intravenous Micro-nutrient Therapy

Myers' has been used to treat:

Intravenous nutritional therapy is a method of delivering vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients to the body directly into the blood stream.  IV therapy bypasses the liver. This allows 100% absorption of the nutrients instead of 20% if taken by mouth. The nutrients enter the body directly at the cellular level where they have the highest benefits.

IV vitamin therapy can be used either pro-actively to maintain wellness or to treat many acute and chronic conditions.

  • Cold/Flu
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lyme's disease
  • Malabsorption Syndromes
  • Small Intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO)
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Migraines
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Cancer support

All of the intravenous formulations are designed and administered under the supervision of our Medical Director in the relaxed  atmosphere of our Belleair Bluffs office.

Frequently Asked Questions

Recently in the news singer Rhinna tweeted a picture of herself receiving IV nutritional Therapy. Other celebrities that have  used the drips include Cindy Crawford, Geri Halliwell, Miley Cyrus as well as Simon Cowell.

What are the benefits?

Are there side effects?

How often do you get one?

Having the mixture added directly to the blood has better absorption rates. By going directly into the bloodstream the Myers Cocktail avoids the digestive system, where most nutrients are poorly absorbed and mostly eliminated. For most of the general population, over 50% of the vitamins and minerals taken by mouth are lost through urine and stool.

Myers Cocktails are a very safe, proven and effective therapy with minimal risks. The most common side effect is occasional redness or irritation at the site of injection, and this resolves shortly after the treatment. Some patients may experience low blood pressure or light-headedness during or after injection, but these typically only last for 5 to 10 minutes. Having a mild taste of B vitamins in the back of the throat is not uncommon, but this diminishes shortly after treatment. Some of our patients have noted a feeling of warmth and relaxation coming over their body due to the magnesium (muscle relaxant).

Myers Cocktails may be used weekly over 3-5 weeks (or more). This will usually be tapered down as symptoms improvement is monitored. Myers Cocktails may also be used monthly for chronic conditions (migraines, allergies, etc), general health maintenance and to help support immune function.
