Myers Cocktail IV Therapy in Grand Rapids, MI

Though it’s been trending as the ultimate “hangover helper” in hipster party crowds for years, the Myers Cocktail is so much more. This super hydrator mix of nutrients and vitamins may address a slew of deficiencies and dysfunctions to optimize your health.

Even if you eat an exemplary diet, digestive issues can disrupt your absorption of the nutrients you need to: boost your immune system, revitalize your tissues, fight infections, resolve inflammation and relieve pain. Oral nutritional supplements may address some of these issues some of the time, but your body simply can’t absorb them as well as it absorbs IV nutrition therapy.

Myers Cocktail IV therapy is one of several IV drip vitamins offered at Grand Rapids Men’s Clinic. Created in the 1960s by Dr. John Myers and refined by Dr. Naeem, this intravenous treatment delivers vitamins and minerals directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your delicate digestive dysfunctions.

Don’t let low energy cause low joy. Schedule your Myers Cocktail IV session with our nutritionists by calling (616) 426-6163 or by contacting us here.

IV Therapy Grand Rapids MI

The Nutrients in Your Myers Cocktail

The IV drip vitamins and minerals that Dr. Naeem delivers in your Myer Cocktail include:

  • vitamin C: boosts immune system to battle infection and disease; prevents cell damage
  • calcium or calcium gluconate: helps shore up bones
  • magnesium or magnesium chloride hexahydrate: boosts immune system; mitigates migraines; aids digestion; prevents inflammation; regulates cardiovascular function and anxiety
  • B12 or hydroxocobalamin: helps turn fat and carbohydrates into energy; makes new protein; regulates blood and nerve function; improves mood and memory
  • B6 or pyridoxine hydrochloride: maintains nerve, skin, and red blood cell health

Dr. Naeem will tailor your Myers’ Cocktail to meet your nutritional needs. Some clients need more vitamin C to beat an infection, while others may need more magnesium to treat migraines. Patients with inflammatory bowel disease need to address their limited vitamin B absorption.

Eating too much processed food makes most Americans antioxidant deficient, so glutathione, “the mother of antioxidants” is often added, along with taurine, an energizing nutrient.

What You’ll Experience During Your Treatment

Dr. Naeem will examine you and your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for Myers Cocktail infusion. On the day of your treatment, you’ll relax in a comfortable chair while he inserts the intravenous needle into your arm and slowly begins administering the solution. You may read or use your cell phone while you wait.

The entire procedure takes about a half hour. Magnesium may cause heat, reduced blood pressure or fainting. All IV infusions share the risks of pain, infection, or inflammation at the injection site.

Though results may vary, you’re likely to feel the energizing effects over the next several days. Dr. Naeem will determine whether or not you’ll need follow up sessions and how often. Some patients may receive this IV therapy more than once a week.
