IV vitamin therapy, especially the Myers cocktail, has been used for a number of years to help people feel their best. It gives the body the vitamins and nutrients it needs in order to function at its best. During treatment, vitamins, amino acids, and minerals are infused directly into the bloodstream. This effect this causes on the body is different than what happens when a person ingests vitamins and minerals orally. As vitamins and minerals travel through the digestive system, some of their potency is lost. Your body is not able to absorb vitamins and minerals at the same level when they are taken orally as when they are injected directly into the bloodstream.
You would not put the same type of oil or gasoline into a high performance vehicle as you would in a common street vehicle. Why? Because each vehicle is designed to perform differently and has different requirements in order to work at its best. The same thing is true with the human body. Each one of us is unique. Our bodies require different levels of minerals or vitamins in order to help us maintain peak physical, mental, and emotional health.
For this reason, some people opt to have a physical exam or to have their blood drawn before IV vitamin therapy. This way, a personalized protocol can be created for them based on their current health needs and their symptoms. When the treatment is administered, you are relaxed in a recliner or in another comfortable position. A hyper dose of nutrients uniquely designed to meet your needs is then administered. The goal is to boost the immune system, contributing to overall wellness.
Individuals who have had IV vitamin therapy say that it helps them deal with things ranging from a hangover to infections to some of the symptoms of cancer. When properly administered, it is possible that vitamin therapy may be able to prevent certain illnesses and help healthy people stay healthy longer.
The Unique Power of Vitamin C
Researchers are constantly learning more about the unique power of vitamin C. Some believe that when vitamin C reaches a peak level in a person’s blood, it can help fight cancer. These levels are only possible through IV infusion. When taken orally, vitamin C negatively interacts with the gastrointestinal system. Your stomach can only tolerate so much of it before it flushes it out, causing you to experience symptoms of diarrhea. When taken via an IV, your body can tolerate it at a much higher level.
Vitamin C is just one example of a vitamin or nutrient you can have administered via IV. Some who are dealing with heart and respiratory challenges have found magnesium to be beneficial. Others who are battling with their immune system and energy levels have found vitamin B complex mixed with other vitamins to be beneficial.
