The Myers IV cocktail injection was developed by Dr John Myers, a Baltimore physician, for use in his practice. Dr Myers died in the 1980s and Dr. Alan Gaby has worked on further refinement of this very useful intravenous protocol.
Conditions which I have personally treated using Myers:
Muscle spasm, Neck and Back Pain, Fatigue Symptoms and M.E. and Persistent unexplained feeling of lack of well-being, Some Mood Problems, Migraine, Tension headaches, Fibromyalgia, Respiratory problems, asthma, Sinusitis, Bronchitis, post-flu/ post-infective/ post-shingles(Herpes Zoster) lack of well-being, acute viral illness/colds etc.
The mixture is mixed to suit the individual patient but usually includes most of the following administered intravenously: Magnesium, Calcium, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3,Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C (3,000 - 5,000mg).
Treatment usually takes 25 - 45 minutes. A ‘treatment trial' usually consists of a total of four treatments given once or twice weekly. Patients vary in the number of treatments needed. Some experience improvement after only one treatment while some may not experience significant improvement until after the fourth infusion. A minority will not respond at all. If there is no improvement after a course of four treatments then I do not persist with treatment. Myers' Cocktail is a safe and extremely well-tolerated by most individuals. Dr Gaby reports no serious adverse effects were encountered in a series of approximately 15,000 treatments.
Dr Alan Gaby has written an excellent review article on Myers IV Cocktail.View Article
