Myers Cocktail

Intravenous micronutrient therapy (IVMT), otherwise known as “The Myers Cocktail,” is now offered by the doctors at A Woman’s Healing Center to treat a variety of symptoms and conditions from early onset flu to fatigue, to hangovers and more.

What is a Myers Cocktail?

A Myers Cocktail is a mixture of vitamins and minerals given directly into the bloodstream via IV.  Dr. John Myers first formulated this intravenous nutrient mixture in the 1970’s in Baltimore, Maryland.  Since that time, cocktails of vitamins and minerals have been used to treat a growing number of ailments, by doctors across the United States.

IV administration of vitamins and minerals can achieve serum concentrations not attainable via oral supplementation or intramuscular injection.  Additionally, this therapy has high antioxidant capabilities.

Frequently asked questions

Is the Myers Cocktail supported by research studies?

Yes, there have been a number of research studies that looked at the safety and efficacy of Myers Cocktail treatments, like this one for Fibromyalgia, which found IVMT to be both safe and effective.

How does it work?

Many illnesses and chronic conditions are associated with digestive disturbances such as bloating, indigestion and food sensitivities, and that people with such conditions may not be able to absorb the nutrients needed by their bodies.

Additionally, many diseases and inflammation cause the body to use nutrients at a faster rate, or to require higher amounts of certain vitamins and minerals for proper healing.

When nutrients are given intravenously, the digestion is bypassed.  This ensures that the vitamins and minerals go directly into the bloodstream and are able to reach the cells where they are needed to speed along healing.

Is this an in-office procedure?

Yes, The Myers Cocktail is administered in our office.  It takes about 30 minutes for the full IV treatment.
