INFUSION THERAPY

AND

MYERS IV (INTRAVENOUS THERAPY)

 

Infusion Therapy is the administration of medication through a needle or catheter.

Myers Intravenous Nutrient Therapy* consists of administering vitamins and minerals intravenously where the absorption rate can be as much as 100%. When vitamins and minerals are taken orally the absorption rate can be as low as 10%, depending on the quality of the supplement.

The late Dr. John Myers, MD used an intravenous vitamin-and-mineral formula for the treatment of a wide range of clinical conditions. The modified “Myers’ cocktail” and similar infusion therapies consist of magnesium, multi-trace minerals, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C and can boost the immune system. In addition, they have been found to be effective against:

  • acute asthma attacks
  • migraines
  • fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome)
  • fibromyalgia
  • acute muscle spasm
  • depression
  • anxiety and panic attacks
  • upper respiratory tract infections
  • chronic sinusitis
  • seasonal allergic rhinitis
  • cardiovascular disease
  • other disorders

 

Myers IV Therapy has also been used to support athletic performance and anti-aging, and to treat hyperthyroidism, acne and other conditions. Intravenous administration of nutrients can achieve serum concentrations that are not obtainable with oral or even intramuscular (IM) administration.

 

Found by hundreds of practitioners to be a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of clinical conditions, Myers IV Therapy treatment is more effective and better tolerated than conventional medical therapies.

Side Effects and Precautions

Side Effects

When administered with the care of an experienced physician, side effects are minimal and overshadowed by the benefits.

The Myers IV often produces a sensation of heat particularly with large doses or rapid administration. This effect appears to be due primarily to the magnesium content, although rapid injections of calcium are reported to produce a similar effect. For most patients the heat does not cause excessive discomfort; indeed, some patients enjoy it. However, if the infusion is given too rapidly, the warmth can be excessive. Some women experience a sensation of pleasure in association with the warmth during an IV infusion. Other patients note that visual acuity and color perception become sharper immediately after an injection, as if someone had turned the lights on. In some cases, this effect lasts as long as one or two days.

 

Precautions

Magnesium that is administered too rapidly can cause hypotension. Therefore, individuals with low blood pressure should notify the physician prior to the administration of magnesium IV so proper care can be taken.

For patients with known condition of, or at risk for hypo-kalemia, potassium levels should be corrected before IV magnesium therapy is considered.

For patients taking Digoxin or patients with cardiac arrhythmias, Intravenous Therapy with calcium is contraindicated.

 

Diagnosis Comes Before Treatment

 

This is an important step before receiving appropriate therapy. If the diagnosis is wrong, then the therapy will be wrong. We do not take short cuts regarding diagnosis, so allow time to be diagnosed properly through symptom analysis and appropriate testing. Dr. Theo takes the time to listen to every patient and to review previous records. A good doctor does not assume another doctor’s diagnosis is correct and therefore Dr. Theo will determine a diagnosis based on his own evaluation.
