In the 1960’s Dr. John Myers developed a unique approach to health, wellness and the treatment and prevention of certain medical conditions. He developed an IV Hydration formula using vitamins and minerals that have known nutritional benefits and low potential for serious side effects, The vitamins and minerals contained in the Myers Cocktail are important in the normal functioning of nerves and muscles (magnesium and calcium), metabolism and conversion of food into energy (B vitamins) and protection against cell damage (vitamin C).
IV hydration is commonly used today in ERs and medical facilities across the country. It is used to deliver medications, vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the bloodstream bypassing the GI tract ensuring 100 percent absorption.
The traditional view is that if we eat a balanced diet we should receive all the vitamins and minerals we need. However as our food supply becomes more dissolved of nutrition the need for supplementation increases. The situation is so bad that supplements are now near the top of the US food pyramid. Another change to the food pyramid was an increase in the daily requirement of fruits and vegetables- to the point where no one is actually capable of eating that much or would go broke doing so.
Dieters are especially prone to nutritional deficiency as their food intake is reduced. Dieting is not about reducing nutrition. It’s about reducing calories.
Even while recognizing the need for supplements, the public is not aware of the differences in quality between good supplements and poor ones. Price many times dictates selection. Synthetic vitamins are cheap to manufacture and mostly ineffective and poorly absorbed. Our IV Vitamin Therapy uses high quality naturally sourced vitamins and bypasses the issue of absorption by delivering mega doses of the nutrients you need to heal right where they need to go.
Since John Myers’ day, physicians, nutritionists and naturopaths have made advances in isolating IV ingredients important to our health. For instance, Zinc helps with minor cold/flu symptoms and prevention. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and energy source for cellular mitochondria. We think it is important we include it in most of our IV’s at our cost. Most IV centers charge $40 to add it to their IV’s. MIC is an amino acid mix that aids in weight loss and boosts energy. Adding these additional vitamins, minerals and amino acids allow for a greater variety of options in your IV drips.
Our goal is to deliver the highest-quality IV therapy in a relaxed caring and comfortable environment so you can be your best you. We employ a small certified compounding pharmacy (Vertisis) using natural ingredients when available and no preservatives. For example, our B-12 is naturally sourced Methyl Cobalamin — the highest form available.
Our medical director is Dr. John Faulkner, a board-certified internist and pioneer in IV stem cell therapy. We not only do IVs to address sickness, but also for wellness/prevention, recovery and performance. For your peace of mind, all of our drips are mixed under a negative pressure hood to maintain sterility.
Let us help you choose what formula is correct for your needs or build one just for you. We also offer vitamin boosters if you’re on the go and need a pick me up.
