If you’re looking to give your immune system a boost, you’re not alone. In this cold and flu season, many of us start to feel a bit rundown. You might wonder how to give your body an immune booster that will actually work.
The Myers’ cocktail IV therapy is a form of minerals, vitamins B and C, and sterile water. The providers at Nutura Clinic in Portland, Oregon, explain more about this form of IV therapy and the benefits you can expect to gain from it.
What is Myers’ cocktail IV therapy?
Myers’ cocktail IV therapy is a specific formulation that has been in use since the 1970s. It’s provided by alternative and holistic practitioners and is a combination of high-dose B vitamins and vitamin C, along with several minerals, like magnesium and calcium.
Most people are very pleasantly surprised to find they feel a lot better after receiving this form of IV therapy.
Good candidates for IV therapy
Although IV therapy can help anyone who wants an extra immune boost, several other groups of people have found benefits from Myers’ cocktail IV therapy as well. Some of these groups include those who suffer with:
- Asthma, particularly severe asthma
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Chronic sinusitis
- Seasonal allergies
Celebrities may seek out IV therapy — especially the Myers’ cocktail — to treat jet lag and general fatigue. But there are benefits for almost anyone.
Some of the benefits of the Myers’ cocktail IV therapy
The Myers’ cocktail has many benefits for your health, including:
- Refreshing hydration for your whole body
- Reduction of stress and anxiety
- Improvement in your mood
- Strengthening of your immune system
- Boosting of your energy levels
While the Food and Drug Administration officially says that vitamins delivered by IV aren’t a proven cure, this therapy is still beneficial to many.
Who shouldn’t get the Myers’ cocktail IV therapy
Although the Myers’ cocktail is helpful to many people, it’s not for everyone. Those who shouldn’t get a Myers’ cocktail include:
- Pregnant women
- Those who have a sensitivity to magnesium
- People who have more significant health issues that need to be addressed
When the magnesium is delivered intravenously, you may have symptoms like lightheadedness or nausea. But this might not mean the treatment isn’t for you. Sometimes, we just need to slow down the drip a bit to help you deal with these side effects.
Normal side effects after the Myers’ cocktail IV therapy
When you receive the Myers’ cocktail IV therapy, some side effects are normal and to be expected. These include redness or swelling at the injection site. If you have any signs of inflammation or infection at your injection site, you should have it evaluated by your doctor. These side effects aren’t common, but they’re possible.
