IV Myers Cocktail Treatment in Edmonton
Myers IV Ingredients
Our Naturopaths typically suggest the Myers IV 1x weekly for 3-4 weeks.
Effects are rapid - most patients feel a boost within 24 hours.
The Myers is well tolerated - felling of pressure at the injection site can happen.
You can stack it - add Vitamin C, Glutathione or NAD to this treatment.
Dr. Alan Gaby MD devised a similar IV injection that John Myers MD had been administering.
Dr. Myers passed in 1984 and the injection was requested by former patients.
Over the next 16 years Dr. Gaby administered about 15 000 Myers Cocktail IV treatments.
Dr. Gaby has published and lectured on the awesome results he's seen with this IV therapy.
How it works
Massive Serum Levels
Oral administration of many nutrients result in only a small increase in blood concentrations.
IV administration can result in dramatically higher levels due to rapid entry into the bloodstream.
The marked levels levels allow cells to more efficiently take up nutrients.
A smaller concentration gradient allowing for more efficient cellular transport and uptake.
Giving cells raw substrate allows the nutrients to engage in their normal biochemical roles.
For example B1 is involved in creating acetyl-CoA from pyruvate for energy production.
The large concentrations allow nutrients to take on secondary, pharmacologic functions
For instance, a classic example is the anti-viral effect of high dose Vitamin C.
Originally, the Myers was done in a fairly small (20ml) syringe.
4 ml Mg, 2 ml Ca, 1 ml of B12, B6, B5, and B complex, 6 ml of C, and 8 ml of sterile water.
We offer Edmonton a larger, stronger version of this that's evolved over 12 years.
Given either as a small volume IV that has double doses of most of the B Vitamins.
Added Riboflavin and 7.5x the dose of B12.
What can it be used for?
Fatigue, Migraine, Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Depression, Upper Respiratory Tract Infections
Seasonal Allergy, Narcotic Withdrawal, Hives, Athletic Performance and COPD.
We also use it for - Stress & Anxiety, Insomnia, PMS, MS, Parkinson's & Cognitive enhancement.
What are the Side Effects?
Our Naturopaths have administered thousands of Myers IV treatments.
The overall incidence of side effects is extremely low.
Our version is concentrated and patients can sometimes feel some discomfort at the site.
The magnesium can cause a distinct warming sensation.
How many treatments do I need?
We usually recommend repeating the Myers IV weekly for 4 weeks.
This is to provide a sustained effect.
Monthly "booster" IVs or to "drop in" as needed thereafter.
