You may have heard about Vitamin IVs because Dr. Oz recently did a segment on the Myers Cocktail. This vitamin concoction is given intravenously, and includes Vitamin C, Magnesium, Calcium, B12, BComplex, B5 and B6. It can be given to just about anyone, but is specifically very helpful for anyone with fatigue, depression, anxiety, vascular disease, fibromyalgia, asthma, allergies, hypertension, immune dysfunction, addiction, PMS, or dementia. Intravenous vitamins are more effective than oral supplementation because they are absorbed 100%, and can be given in much larger dosages. We can therefore raise the levels in your body much faster, so you feel better faster. In addition, as we get older, our digestive systems are able to absorb less, and that is in part why we age, because all of the nutrients for repairing damage come from food, and our food doesn’t contain the nutrients it used to because of farming practices and the degradation of the soil.
The Myers cocktail can help just about anyone, sometimes we refer to it as a “liquid vacation”, because it helps your body to feel more relaxed, and rejuvenated. While the Myers cocktail is effective and helpful, it is the very basic model.
At Human Reconstruction we are experts in compounding IVs specifically designed for your health. We offer the “luxury” model: different vitamins, amino acids and minerals in addition to those included in a Myers, for example, Chromium which aids in weight loss and can help diabetes by helping insulin receptors become more sensitive to insulin.
Selenium and Zinc help with immune function and hormone production.
Amino acids are very helpful for energetic, neurotransmitter, and hormone pathways.
Vitamin C given in high dosages can kill cancer cells, Hepatitis C virus, and stimulate the immune system to fight off the flu.
We offer specialized testing to determine what you are specifically deficient in, and using that information combined with your clinical picture and health concerns, we create a powerful recipe designed individually for you.
One of the health concerns raised about the IV nutrients was allergic reactions, which are incredibly rare and very unlikely, considering that every food you eat contains these nutrients, but we are experienced, and prepared for that occurance. You absolutely do, however, want to have an expert compound and administer your therapy. We have experience giving cutting edge IV therapy treatments to pro athletes for over seven years, regularly treat elderly patients, and have administered very high dose Vitamin C and specialty bags to the chronically ill.
