IV Nutrition Therapy at Med•Studio is offered in Minnetonka and Woodbury/Oakdale. This elective out patient IV Nutrition Therapy is a combination of tailored nutrients to help replenish and restore depleted nutrients such as vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and electrolytes. IV nutrition therapy may help and support the body with increased energy and endurance, improved recovery, fighting illness, chronic pain, hormone balance and reduced inflammation.
What to expect with IV Nutrition Therapy
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 does IV Therapy Work?
IV Nutrition therapy delivers nutrient enriched fluids directly into the blood stream, that may help increase absorption into the cells. Giving cells the help and support they may need to work better in the body. Our mission is to help improve how you feel by reducing effects of dehydration and restore you to vitality and wellness.

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.
