Intravenous Micronutrient Therapy
As the seasons change and we approach cool weather, hot toddies and holiday merriment, what remains at the forefront for many is unwavering anguish, both mental and physical. And while there are countless prescription drugs available to ease the pain, there is an underutilized vitamin concoction that is making strides in treating a wide range of clinical conditions.
Myers’ Cocktail is truly a vitamin victor.
The cocktail in question is the brainchild of the late Dr. John Myers, a Baltimore physician who pioneered the use of intravenous nutrient mixtures more than 50 years ago to treat a wide range of ailments, including migraine headaches, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies, acute upper respiratory infections, asthma, muscle spasms, chronic depression/anxiety and more. This treatment, known formally as Intravenous Micronutrient Therapy, is commonly called Myers’ Cocktail.

Dr. Myers’ work was taken to the next level by renowned nutrition expert Dr. Alan Gaby, and Dr. David Katz, a fibromyalgia specialist and founder of the Prevention Research Center at Yale University. Dr. Katz, who has conducted clinical trials involving more than 15,000 patients, has confirmed that Myers’ Cocktail has helped his patients immensely, easing symptoms and, in many instances, eliminating the need for other, more menacing, medications.
So, how exactly does this excellent elixir work?
Myer’s Cocktail provides an infusion of micronutrients, including vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, that exceed the amount that could be administered orally and provide 100% absorption at a cellular level. So, while researchers continually try to pinpoint the source of positive results, we do know that some patients may have an inability to process nutrients properly, and therefore develop problems with the immune system that controls inflammation. Additionally, high blood doses of micronutrients foster our neurological health and affect the blood vessels in a way that results in helping muscles to relax. Due to the lengthy list of ailments addressed by Myers’ Cocktail, these well-founded theories are among many. But the bottom line is this: If we can live happier, healthier, peaceful and pain-free, and, at the same time, eliminate prescription drugs and toxicity, Myers’ Cocktail is truly a vitamin victor.
