IV Therapy and Hydration
Intravenous (IV) nutrition is a method of feeding vitamins, minerals, and other natural substances directly into a patient’s bloodstream. Bypassing the digestive system is the main advantage of IV nutrition.
Myers or Meyers cocktail? Either way you call it, find out why it’s an outstanding and effective treatment.
Dr. Schanen, ARPN, tailors the specific ingredients and nutrients of the Myers Cocktail mixture based on the individual needs of the patient, providing a customized IV vitamin therapy that combines several crucial vitamins and minerals into one effective treatment.
What are the Myers’ Cocktail ingredients?
The basic Myers’ Cocktail IV contains B-complex vitamins, magnesium, calcium, and Vitamin C. By creating a mix of nutrients that helps different parts of your body work better, the Myers’ Cocktail is a great option for treating various conditions.
However, as mentioned earlier, each provider will personalize the ingredients in your Myers’ Cocktail IV based on your specific needs. For instance, if you have a heart condition or parathyroid disorder, they won’t include calcium in your nutrient mix.
What is a Glutathione IV and what does an IV Glutathione therapy entail?
Glutathione is a super powerful antioxidant made up of three important amino acids that fight against harmful substances in your body. When you get a glutathione treatment, it helps your liver get rid of bad chemicals by attaching to them and getting rid of them safely.
Your body naturally makes glutathione, and when you take Vitamin C, it helps make even more of it. If your glutathione levels are normal, your body can fight off neurological problems really well. But if your levels are low, you’re more likely to get all sorts of neurological issues, which can happen when those harmful substances called free radicals damage your 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.
What is a Magnesium IV Drip?
IV magnesium sulfate, delivered through a Magnesium IV Drip, is a treatment that has been proven to work in hospitals for different health issues like heart rhythm problems and high blood pressure. Magnesium given through an IV is often used together with a Myers’ Cocktail, which is a type of IV therapy that combines important vitamins and minerals into one treatment.
Magnesium IV Drip effectively improves the function of your muscles and nerves. Your body needs magnesium to carry out more than 300 chemical reactions that are necessary to keep you alive. Magnesium is also a natural substance that helps reduce the strain on your heart by blocking calcium channels.
Magnesium can be helpful for various conditions, including feelings of worry, heart rhythm problems, ongoing tiredness, a condition called fibromyalgia, and high blood pressure.
