  • The Myers’ cocktail IV is an intravenous vitamin infusion which enhances the immune system, helps to reduce fatigue, help reduce the symptoms of fibromyalgia and has also been used to help with seasonal allergies too!

  • The Myers’ Cocktail is named for the late John Myers, M.D., who treated many chronic conditions using a combination of nutrients delivered intravenously. This combination of nutrients was also used later by Alan Gaby, M.D., who treated thousands of patients with the Myers’ Cocktail. Dr. Gaby reported that his patients with acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies and cardiovascular disease all responded well and showed improvement to the IV therapy. He also noted improvements in athletic performance.

  • Unfortunately, because of the way our bodies metabolize the vitamins and minerals we take by mouth, much of what is taken is not completely absorbed. Additionally, further limitations on patients’ potential absorption include some causes such as: digestive issues, food sensitivities, improper stomach pH, gastric bypass, or even taking acid reflux medications. Studies have shown that patients who take high doses of Vitamin C by mouth are only able to absorb (at best) up to 50% of the amount they ingest. The Myers’ Cocktail works by skipping the digesting phase and directly increasing the concentration of several essential vitamins and minerals in your blood higher than you could get if you took them orally.
