IV vitamin therapy was pioneered by Dr. John Myers. He formulated what’s referred to as the Myers’ Cocktail: a blend of water-soluble vitamins and minerals administered by an intravenous drip. This delivery mechanism, superior to any other form of nutrient delivery, enabled doctors to treat vitamin, mineral, and amino acid deficiencies, such as a deficiency in vitamin B12. But it’s not just deficiencies of nutrients that IV vitamin therapy is good for; it’s also one of the foremost ways to rehydrate the body (and it’s the best hangover treatment around)!
One of the most common uses of IV vitamin therapy is to bathe a person’s cells with antioxidants. Nutrients such as vitamin C, glutathione, and selenium are important antioxidants that protect your body against disease and help improve energy. Antioxidants are important substances that prohibit and prevent the oxidation of other molecules in the body. Oxidation of molecules leads to a wide range of diseases and chronic illnesses. Antioxidants are essential in preventing disease and maintaining good health!
Seventy-five percent of people are chronically dehydrated and IV vitamin therapy is a great way to rehydrate the body. Whether it’s after a workout or a late night out, rehydration can shorten recovery time or alleviate a hangover. Rehydration can improve post-workout recovery times or even mitigate a hangover. Many patients state that, after an IV vitamin drip, they feel much more hydrated and refreshed.
For an infusion, vitamins are added to a solution containing the same salt concentration as your blood to aid absorption and take about 20 to 30 minutes. Infusions are relatively painless.
IV Vitamin C therapy adds additional stress to cancer cells. It creates oxidative damage internally, so your healthy tissues can process the high doses of Vitamin C without being harmed. Treatments may also strengthen surrounding tissues against cancer cell growth and invasion.
IV Vitamin C therapy has both cancer fighting and quality of life benefits. It is best used alongside conventional approaches, according to several studies. When administered intravenously at the right concentration, Vitamin C can target cancer cells and leave healthy cells unharmed.
Vitamin C IV therapy has been proven effective in treating many types of cancer. This is especially true when used in conjunction with traditional chemotherapy treatment.
Vitamin C reduces toxicity levels in the body, which allows many patients to tolerate higher (and potentially more effective) doses of chemotherapy. Chemotherapy can then attack cancer cells while doing less damage to the rest of your body.
Vitamin C does not just make chemotherapy work better, however. Vitamin C also has anti-cancer properties of its own, according to several studies. When the right concentration is administered intravenously, Vitamin C can target cancer cells and leave healthy cells unharmed.
