Med Spa IV Therapy & Naturopathic Medicine
Vitamins and minerals are the “spark plugs” that activate all metabolic processes in our bodies. In times of stress and disease nutritional needs are high, yet often depleted. Nutrients administered intravenously, bypass the digestive process, and are delivered directly to the cells of the body. The main categories of our intravenous therapy clinic include nutritive, chelation and oxidative therapies.
At The Med Spa IV Therapy Clinic, the most common nutritive IV therapy is the Myers’ Cocktail, an intravenous vitamin nutrient supplement, formulated more than 30 years ago by John Myers, MD, a Baltimore physician. This potent solution contains a specially balanced combination of vitamin and minerals. It is given intravenously to help the treatment of a range of ailments and increase energy.
At The Med Spa IV Therapy Clinic, the standard Myers’ Cocktail consists of magnesium, calcium, vitamin B-5 (dexpanthenol), vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B-12 (hydroxycobalamin), vitamin B complex, and an average of 25 grams of Vitamin C. Two time Nobel Laureate Dr. Linus Pauling was a staunch supporter of Vitamin C for healing a wide variety of health problems. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that helps the immune system ward off bacterial and viral infections. It also makes certain metabolic processes in work better. Other vitamins or ingredients may be added to the Myers’ Cocktail protocol, depending on the patient’s diagnosis and overall health as well as the condition being treated.
At The Med Spa IV Therapy Clinic, many people who have benefited from this protocol claim that the intravenous shots of vitamin B12 in Myers’ Cocktail are even more beneficial than Vitamin B-12 intramuscular injections in restoring their energy and stamina. Intravenous treatments are more effective than oral therapy for increasing blood levels of nutrients.

What is the duration of IV Therapy Clinic Treatment?
At The Med Spa IV Therapy Clinic, patients vary in the number of treatments needed, but most require infusions 2 or more times per week. Some patients at the IV Therapy Clinic experience improvement after only one treatment, and many report significant healing by the fourth infusion. People who have chronic conditions may need ongoing treatment of several IV’s per week, or periodically every few weeks to regain their energy.
