IV (RE)Juvination Nutrition Therapy
Nutrition deficit can still be the underlying cause of countless conditions that patients face from fatigue/low energy to headaches to chronic pain. Micronutrients include vitamins, minerals, trace elements, and amino acids that serve major roles in metabolic processes, cognitive homeostasis, antioxidant properties, and tissue function. *
Although there are different ways one can receive micronutrients, providing these nutrients via intravenous (IV) route may be the most efficacious way of correcting the essential vitamin and mineral intracellular deficits. As the name suggests, intravenous administration provides direct delivery to the bloodstream; bypassing any obstacles in the digestive system that may hinder absorption.*
Additionally, IV administration can prevent gastrointestinal side effects such as upset stomach, nausea, and vomiting which can be limiting for proper dosing and adherence. Improved absorption with reduced GI adverse effects may make IV administration a more suitable option for many patients.*
Dr. John Myers, MD, started the use of intravenous (IV) vitamins and minerals to treat his patients’ various medical problems like fatigue and infection. After his death in 1984, other practitioners began modifying his formulation, using different balances and concentrations of vitamins and minerals. Despite the number of variations on the original formula, it is still known as the “Myers’ cocktail” due to Myers’ pioneering efforts in the field of IV nutrition.
Conditions** that Myer’s Cocktail has been known to be beneficial for include:
Fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome)
Acute muscle spasm
Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant to help combat dangerous free radicals. Therefore, glutathione is beneficial in supplying appropriate nutrition for aged-related changes and neurodegenerative diseases.**
Myer’s Cocktail plus Immune Boost
(RE)Boost contains the same ingredients as Myer’s Cocktail but also includes Glutathione and Acetylcysteine. This will help provide appropriate nutrition to help combat deficiencies that may manifest in a variety of conditions**.
