The Myers Cocktail is an IV vitamin therapy that combines several crucial vitamins and minerals into one effective treatment. Dr. Schanen, ARPN, customizes the specific Myers cocktail ingredients and nutrients to be included in the mixture depending on the patient’s individual needs.

However, as stated above, each provider will custom-tailor the ingredients in your Myers’ Cocktail IV according to your individual situation. For example, if you have a heart condition or parathyroid disorder, he will not include calcium in your nutrient cocktail.
What is a Glutathione IV and what does an IV Glutathione therapy entail?
Glutathione is an extremely effective antioxidant comprised of three essential amino acids that attack free radicals. Glutathione treatment plays a major role in helping your liver detoxify harmful chemicals by binding to the toxins and safely eliminating them.
The body produces glutathione naturally, and intake of Vitamin C boosts its production. If glutathione levels are normal, the body’s ability to fight neurological disorders is strong. If they are low, you are susceptible to any number of neurological disorders, which can result from free radicals destroying the brain cells and brain chemicals.
A number of clinical studies over the past two decades have demonstrated that:
Glutathione is severely depleted in patients with Parkinson’s and other neurodegenerative diseases.
Glutathione and Vitamin C IV significantly reduces the damage and death of dopamine-producing neurons, improving patients’ symptoms and quality of life.
