If chronic pain keeps you from doing what you love, consider the many benefits of intravenous (IV) therapy. Learn how a Myers’ cocktail can ease existing pain, stop additional pain attacks, and keep your body in healthy balance.

Intravenous (IV) therapy offers many benefits for your health and wellness. Therapies like the Myers’ cocktail can be especially helpful if you’re living with chronic pain from an injury or underlying disease.

At IV MD, we specialize in Myers’ cocktail hydration therapy to ease existing pain, prevent additional pain episodes, and boost your overall energy levels.

Our highly skilled physician, Chaim Mandelbaum, MD, supervises your IV therapy session to ensure your safety. He can also customize an IV treatment to your specific health challenges and wellness goals.

What to know about IV therapy and the Myers’ cocktail

IV therapy delivers liquid minerals and vitamins, as well as extra fluids directly into your bloodstream through an IV line.

This delivery method ensures that your body absorbs more of the nutrients than it can from the foods you eat. IV therapy also makes the nutrients available to your cells so your body can use them immediately.

A Myers’ cocktail contains high-quality vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants like:

  • Biotin
  • Glutathione
  • Ascorbic acid
  • Methylcobalamin
  • B-complex vitamins
  • Calcium chloride
  • Magnesium chloride

This therapy also infuses extra fluids. The extra fluids quickly hydrate your tissues and provide effective relief from chronic pain and other symptoms.

The effectiveness of Myers’ cocktail on chronic pain

Dr. John Myers developed the Myers’ cocktail in the 1970s to relieve symptoms of asthma, allergies, sinusitis, and other chronic health conditions.

The popular infusion therapy also proved to be beneficial for people with persistent pain from fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions.  

The magnesium in a Myers’ cocktail supports the repair of damaged DNA and optimizes nerve function. We also incorporate B-complex vitamins that encourage the growth of new red blood cells and boost your metabolism to fight off the fatigue that can occur with chronic pain.

Vitamin C is included in a Myers’ cocktail to strengthen your immunity and to prevent inflammation, a contributing factor to chronic pain. The calcium in the infusion also plays a role in healthy nerve function to lower your risk factors for chronic, nerve-related pain.

Additional benefits of Myers’ cocktail infusions

A big benefit of using a Myers’ cocktail as part of your treatment plan for chronic pain is the possibility that you can reduce your reliance on over-the-counter and prescription medications for pain relief. This can minimize your risk of unwanted side effects certain medicines cause.

In addition to lessening pain and inflammation throughout your body, we can recommend the Myers’ cocktail as a solution for:

  • Stress
  • Headaches
  • Colds and flu
  • Nutritional deficiencies

If you’re weighed down by mental health disorders like depression and anxiety, a Myers’ cocktail can optimize your brain health and function to improve your mood and restore your energy.

We can determine how often you may schedule a Myers’ cocktail infusion to keep your pain under control. We also might recommend IV infusions of other nutrients to address your specific health needs.
