What to expect with an IV Drip Treatment
The IV Drip Treatments are administered in our Minnetonka clinic. A small catheter is inserted into a vein, and the infusion is given very slowly over 20-30 minutes. Side effects are remarkably rare and almost always are limited to local irritation of the vein. The most common sensations are heat and flushing (a magnesium effect), and the taste of vitamins soon after the infusion begins. Results vary per person – optimal effects are usually felt by the fourth visit.
How often should I get an IV Drip Treatment?
Many patients with chronic conditions choose to continue the infusions every 1-4 weeks or when they feel their energy slipping.
The history of IV Drips
The most commonly known IV Drip Therapy is the Myers’ Cocktail, it is named for the late John Myers, M.D., a Maryland physician who used intravenous injections of nutrients to treat many chronic conditions. Currently, the nutrient cocktail has been popularized by Alan Gaby, M.D., a physician who often writes about nutrition in medicine. He has treated thousands of patients with the Myers’ Cocktail over many years. Conditions which he found to be responded well by this treatment include acute asthma attacks, migraines, Fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies and cardiovascular disease. He also observed improvements in athletic performance.
The Myers’ Cocktail works by increasing the blood concentration of several essential vitamins and minerals beyond that which can be achieved when supplementing orally. For example, Vitamin C given intravenously has been found to reach blood concentrations more than 50 times greater than what can be achieved when given orally. Here at Med • Studio we have created our own version of the Meyers’ Cocktail that increases energy with the added benefits of the traditional formula.
