Intra-Venous Micronutrient Therapy
WHAT IS IT?
First, by injecting substances directly into the bloodstream you eliminate any alteration in the nutrients which may occur from the actions of digestive enzymes. Second, the amount of nutrients in the blood can reach much higher, more therapeutic levels faster than is possible by absorbing nutrients through the Gastro-Intestinal system. This may be particularly important if a patient is suffering from a GI system disorder where absorption of nutrients is impaired. In some cases the IV use of micronutrients permits much higher levels than are possible even with a healthy GI system.
IS IT SAFE?
Side Effects of treatment can include bruising around the site of the needle stick. Some patients may have a tendency to vascular fragility, and can suffer a phenomenon known as "infiltration", in which the walls of the vein rupture and the IV fluid leaks into the surrounding tissue causing local burning. This will dissipate within a short period of time, but the IV site will need to be moved to another vein. Some patients may have small or hard-to-find veins. In rare instances, if you have small veins or are especially prone to vascular fragility, you may not be a candidate for IVMT. In some instances, a period of high dose oral nutrients can build up your nutritional state and help strengthen your veins to the point you can use the IVMT therapy.
WHAT CONDITIONS CAN IVMT BE USED FOR?
The MYERS' COCKTAIL
- Vitamin C
- Trace Minerals
The Myers' Cocktail is the first line IVMT therapy for many conditions. Modifications to this basic protocol can be made based on your exact condition.
Scientific Evidence for the Myers' Cocktail:
Some of the most extensive evidence for the effectiveness of the Myers' Cocktail
was compiled by Alan Gaby M.D., who also practiced in Baltimore and took over many of Dr. Myers' patients after
his death in 1984. Dr. Gaby administered more than 15,000 Myers' injections to about 1000 patients over an 11
year period in an outpatient setting. A summary of this work was published in Alternative Medicine
Review, Vol 7, No. 5, 2002. Dr. Gaby found the Myers effective for Asthma, Migraines, Chronic Fatigue,
Acute Muscle Spasms, Upper Respiratory Tract Infections, Chronic Sinusitis, Seasonal Allergies,
Cardiovascular Disease, Mental Depression, Urticaria and various other disorders. To read Dr. Gaby's
