Your cells require nutrients to properly function. It is believed that cellular vitamin and mineral deficiency caused by digestion problems can lead to chronic illnesses.
With the Myer’s Cocktail, Dr. Truong and her team at the Truong Rehabilitation Center bypass your digestive system and provide an intravenous (IV) solution formulated to combat illness and increase energy. By administering this vitamin- and mineral-rich solution directly into your bloodstream, your body tissues and cells can absorb more nutrients.
Myers’ Cocktail IV therapy may help you:
Years of research have shown that patients with acute viral illnesses, chronic infections, and other health issues can benefit from a Myer’s Cocktail IV.
Myer’s Cocktail is an intravenous solution of vitamins and minerals in sterile water.
Vitamins and minerals include:
The Myers’ Cocktail was created by Dr. John Myers, an Internal Medicine physician from Johns Hopkins University Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland.
Believing that poor nutrient absorption by the digestion tract could lead to illness, Dr. Myers created his famous cocktail by experimenting on animals, then himself, and then on consenting patients with chronic illnesses.
After his passing, Dr. Myers’ work was continued by his apprentice, colleague, and renowned nutritional medicine expert Dr. Alan R. Gaby, MD.
It is believed that if the digestive tract is unable to properly absorb vitamins and minerals, then the extra-cellular matrix / interstitial space (the space between cells and tissues) becomes nutrient deficient, causing chronic illnesses.
Unlike the digestive system, which sends nutrients to the liver via the portal vein where enzymes there may impede their effectiveness, the Myer’s Cocktail bypasses this “1st-pass effect” by delivering the nutrients directly into the bloodstream.
In addition to providing the body with the vitamins and minerals it needs to fight disease, the Myers’ Cocktail encourages nutrients to enter the mitochondria of cells, which often encourages the temporary production of cellular energy more efficiently.
Patients that could benefit from the Myers’ Cocktail include those who have difficulty digesting food, do not receive the nutrients they need from oral vitamin supplements, or have digestive issues like indigestion, bloating, leaky gut, food sensitivities, or an altered stomach pH level.
At the Truong Rehabilitation Center, Myer’s Cocktail IV Therapy can be used to treat the following medical conditions:
The vitamin C in the Myers’ Cocktail has also been shown to have cancer-fighting properties.
The infusion is given 1-2 times per week. Dr. Truong will slowly administer the Myer’s Cocktail into your arm for about 20-45 minutes to prevent lightheadedness from the magnesium.
This treatment is painless. You may experience the taste of vitamins in your mouth and a warm feeling throughout the body and the pelvic region.
The risk of infection is low, and Dr, Truong will work to minimize the risk of excessive nutrient levels and other side effects like vein irritation, inflammation, air embolisms, blood clots, and fluid overload.
It may take several visits to feel the effects of the Myers’ cocktail. Dr. Truong will work with you to determine the number of infusions you need, as well as how many weeks in between each infusion is necessary. The increased energy levels may last for several weeks.
Resupply your cells with the vitamins and minerals that they’ve been lacking. The Myer’s Cocktail is a relaxing way to improve your health and give you the energy you need to take on the day.
