What to expect with an IV THERAPY
The elective, outpatient IV Nutrition Therapy is currently offered at our Minnetonka and Woodbury/Oakdale clinics. A small catheter is inserted into a vein, and the infusion is given slowly over 30-60 minutes. Side effects are rare and mostly limited to local irritation of the vein. The most common sensations are heat and flushing (a magnesium effect), and the taste of vitamins after the infusion begins. Results vary by person – many report feeling more energy, quicker recovery from illness and optimal effects are usually felt by the fourth visit.
How often should I get an IV Drip Treatment?
Feel free to check with your provider, but many patients with chronic conditions or those seeking preventative help may 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 Nutrition Therapy is the Myers’ Cocktail – created over 30 years ago and was named after the late John Myers, M.D.. He was a Maryland medical doctor 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 the role of nutrition in medicine. He has treated thousands of patients with the Myers’ Cocktail over many years. Conditions which he found that responded favorably to this therapy included asthma, headaches & migraines, fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergies and cardiovascular disease. He also observed improvements in athletic performance.
Most experts believe the Myers’ Cocktail works by increasing the blood concentration of several essential vitamins and minerals beyond that which can be achieved when taking orally. There are several variations of the Myers’ Cocktail and Med • Studio uses a variation of the Meyers’ Cocktail that helps increases energy with the added benefits of the traditional formula.
