For years, I’ve heard of Myer’s cocktails and doing intravenous nutrient therapy.
What is Intravenous Nutrient Therapy?
Intravenous Nutrient Therapy is the process of giving vital nutrients to the body via the bloodstream by accessing a vein with a very small needle. The nutrients can be administered in optimum amounts slowly over a period of about 15 minutes or through a saline solution that’s dripped in over a period ranging from half an hour to about two hours depending on the solution being administered.
My experience with Intravenous Nutrient Therapy
I know, injecting things into the bloodstream is a bit outside of the natural approach we’re always talking about. But being in the health field I often try things to experiment for myself. This way I can talk from experience and not just what I’ve heard from others.
Certainly it sounds like a much better option to disease treatment and maintaining health than most drugs.
At a recent conference I attended, there was a booth for IV nutrient therapy with lots of options.
I chose to go with the biggest and most expensive package they had at $250. A large number of nutrients as well as glutathione at the end.
Go big or go home. I figured this would be the best way to get the experience of it, rather than a small shot.
And it felt good.
But I also felt good before.
The truth is I didn’t notice a big difference. Maybe a little more relaxed, possibly from the magnesium. (I kind of looked stoned in that picture, didn’t I?)
And of course, you can’t always “feel” a difference in your health. That shouldn’t be the only thing you use to guide you, though it is one important factor.
Still, if you’re looking for greater health this might be something you want to consider. This Pubmed study said the following:
The modified “Myers’ cocktail,” which consists of magnesium, calcium, B vitamins, and vitamin C, has been found to be effective against acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders.
And there’s probably many more things. Because if you’re micronutrient deficient that’s a root issue at soooo many problems.
So, it’s a good thing to know about in any case.
And maybe some day we’ll start offering intravenous herbs. Can you imagine Pine pollen tincture straight into your veins! ;)
(I’m being sarcastic on that last line, please don’t actually do that.)
