What is an IV therapy Clinic?
An IV Therapy Clinic and IV nutritional therapy is simply the process of administering vitamins, minerals and nutrients directly into the bloodstream via an intravenous line (called the IV). IV nutritional therapy bypasses the gut and the liver, delivering 100% of the nutrient directly into the bloodstream. IV is the most efficient way to introduce any medication or compound.
First Pass Metabolism. Most of us take vitamins or supplements orally. But even with a healthy intestinal tract, ingesting vitamins allows only 10% to 25% absorption of nutrients, minerals and vitamins. In addition, once the dosage is absorbed, the liver processes and destroys many of the orally ingested vitamins in a process called “first pass metabolism.”
The Myers’ Cocktail. The Myers’ cocktail is named after its originator, the late John Myers, M.D. The Myer’s cocktail contains vitamin C, magnesium, minerals, nutrients and B vitamins. It is administered intravenously and promoted as an alternative treatment for a broad range of conditions including asthma, arrhythmias, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Many patients swear it is the ultimate cure for the “hangover.”
Your Myers’ cocktail can be administered right here in our clinic in about 20 minutes. It works fast as it restores and rehydrates the body.
