As more and more people look for non-prescription ways to deal with health issues, innovative intravenous therapy has grown in popularity. One such type of IV therapy is the Myers' cocktail. Let's learn more about this treatment to see if it could be right for you.
The Myers' Cocktail is a type of IV therapy made popular by the late Dr. John Myers. This vitamin and mineral combination is administered to patients as an IV. Dr. Myers created this treatment to help individuals who were suffering from fatigue, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, and other conditions. The treatment can be further customized by a healthcare provider for individuals.
Although this treatment is administered through an IV, it does not contain any type of prescription drug. The traditional Myers' Cocktail includes varying doses of Vitamins C, B complex, and B 12. It also includes the minerals calcium, magnesium, and zinc. The antioxidant Glutathione is also often included to aid the immune system. These ingredients are contained in a saline solution and administered through a regular IV.
This type of IV drip therapy is often recommended for people who suffer from low energy, exhaustion due to athletics, dehydration, withdrawal symptoms, depression, and anxiety. Many other conditions might benefit from this treatment as well. The combination of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients also benefits people with weakened immune systems. This is expected to reach even more people in the future. According to data collected by iData Research, the global infusion therapy market size was valued at around $7.5 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow to $11.2 billion by 2027. The more accessible IV drip therapy is, the more people can benefit from it.
A Myers' Cocktail is made of natural vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants so it's safe for most patients. It should be administered by a health care provider aware of any types of allergies you may have. A Myers' Cocktail would only be unsafe if it's being administered by someone who isn't trained on dosage. You also want any type of IV drip therapy to be administered by a trained IV administer. An improperly administered IV can cause pain, damage to veins, and infection.
