IV THERAPY

therapy blue  icon 2xINTRAVENOUS INFUSIONS

Some people do not respond well to oral supplementation but respond wonderfully to IV vitamins and minerals.

IV Therapy or Intravenous infusions may be useful if a patient’s absorptive capacity is poor. Myers’ Cocktail is a potent blend of vitamins and minerals designed for IV use. It was originally developed by Dr. John Myers, a Maryland physician. Today, doctors all over the world use the Myers’ Cocktail to help treat a broad spectrum of health conditions. While the exact ingredients can vary depending on needs of the patient only natural substances such as vitamins, minerals and amino-acids are used in intravenous infusions.

There is no ‘cure all’ in medicine but for some patients IV therapy proves to be a very great help on their road to recovering their health. The Myers’ Cocktail can be extremely useful in the treatment of a wide variety of conditions, including:

  • Infections (Cold, Flu)
  • Allergies and Asthma
  • Fatigue
  • Migraines/Cluster headaches
  • Hypertension
  • Fibromyalgia, Neuropathic pain etc

ABOUT IV THERAPY

  • What is IV therapy? +

    Some people do not respond well to oral supplementation but respond wonderfully to IV vitamins and minerals. Intravenous infusions may be useful if the patient has poor absorptive capacity.

  • Who is IV therapy for? +

    IV therapy is used to help treat a wide range of common complaints such as poor sleep, muscular pain, poor stomach absorption, but may also be beneficial in treating stress, and assisting the body recover during periods of strenuous physical training.This treatment is not intended to replace a nutritious balanced diet and should be used to supplement a balanced diet.

  • What are some recommended uses for IV therapy? +

    Sleep disturbances, Muscle tension relief, Sports recovery and Liver support and detox.

  • If I frequently use supplements, will this treatment benefit me? +

    If you frequently use supplements and eat cleanly, and have no underlining stomach issues, it is likely you already get all of the nutrients you need. However, if you have any special concerns or you are not already a patient of Dr. Macgovern, it is recommended that you have a consultation appointment prior to your IV treatment.

  • What ailments can this treatment help alleviate? +

    Some patients have reported improved muscle tension, better sleep, reduction in inflammation and fluid retention and more energy from receiving IV therapy treatment.

  • Will IV therapy work for me? +

    In my own experience as a doctor, although I underwent training in the use of IV infusions in 1996 in the US, I decided not to use them immediately on the basis that: if patient had proper nutritional advice then intravenous infusions were a waste of the patient’s money and the doctor’s time. Some years later I reluctantly made the decision to do a short trial of intravenous infusions in a particular patient for whom I was struggling to find the treatment which could begin their process of improvement. The patient responded well and quickly to the intravenous infusions. Only natural substances such as vitamins, minerals and amino-acids are used in intravenous infusions. There is no ‘cure all’ in medicine but for some patients intravenous infusions proved to be a very great help on their road to recovering their health. Dr John Myers, a physician of Baltimore did extensive work on the use of intravenous nutrient infusions. Dr Myers died in the 1960s and his work was carried on and further developed by Dr Alan Gaby. Dr Alan Gaby has written an excellent review article on intravenous infusions.

A GUIDE TO YOUR VISITflowers 2x

Prior to the first consultation you will fill out an e-mail with details of your health background to facilitate our assessment of your medical problems.

At the first consultation, we will arrange relevant medical investigations, including blood tests, hormone investigations, adrenal stress tests etc.

Sometimes, as a 'kick-start' to your system, intravenous vitamin and mineral infusions may be suggested as an initial booster.

The second consultation takes place when all the test results are available.

Your Functional Medicine treatment plan blends standard medical treatment with nutritional/ biochemically-based therapy. The aim is to work in harmony with your body's innate healing capabilities rather than suppressing them.

The third consultation typically takes place about 6 to 8 weeks after the second.

What Our Patients Say

  • Dr Magovern takes the time to truly listen to his patient and acknowledge all issues,
    both physical and emotional. He is a doctor for people who don’t want to spend the rest of
    their life feeling tired, sore or depressed and taking one drug after another. I can’t
    recommend him highly enough.

  • Doctor Magovern is a very caring and attentive doctor. He sets out to assess and treat
    every case on an individual basis. He carries out an in-depth consultation with the patient
    and then recommends a treatment plan to suit that person.

  • Dr Magovern asked me to go for blood tests and other investigations. When the results came back,
    we agreed a plan for a naturally-based treatment, a mix of Intravenous infusions of minerals and vitamins
    and oral supplements. Six month later, I realised that, not only had I no antibiotic
    treatments over this past winter and my energy level has improved substantially.
