The "Myers Cocktail" is the name commonly used by physicians for a formulation of vitamins, minerals and nutrients given intravenously to patients. Its more or less the nutrient elixir covering many bases and used as supplement if not a treatment for many ailments. The name comes from the doctor who "invented it" from Baltimore for a wide range of medical conditions.
IV Therapy Increasing in Popularity
Myers Cocktails have gained recently a lot of popularity and people who regularly receive this intravenous mixture , state that many of the symptoms they report are alleviated. There are very few studies done on this IV therapy which neither support or refute the claims of the Myers cocktail.
One review paper written and appeared in Alternate Medicine Review sums up the literature well and gives actual case histories as examples.
"The Myers cocktail has been found by the author and hundreds of other practitioners to be a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of clinical conditions. In many instances this treatment is more effective and better tolerated than conventional medical therapies. Although most of the evidence is anecdotal, some published research has demonstrated the efficacy of the Myers cocktail or some of its components. Widespread appropriate use of this treatment would likely reduce the overall cost of healthcare, while greatly improving the health of many individuals."
