The use of injectable nutrition was first introduced by John Myers, MD, as an integral part of his treatment programs for various medical problems. Many of his patients had been receiving these injections monthly, weekly, and even more than twice weekly for as many as 25 years in some cases. Dr. Myers used his specially formulated treatment to alleviate and even cure a wide range of problems, including fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), depression, chest pain, acute asthma attacks, allergies, migraines, fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, hyperthyroidism, athletic performance, and even narcotic withdrawal and cardiovascular disease, among other disorders.
The “Myers Cocktail”, as it has famously been called, has been found by many practitioners to be a safe and effective treatment for a variety of clinical conditions, often producing dramatic results. In many instances, this treatment has shown to be even more effective and more tolerated than conventional medical therapies, including prescription medications. Upon administration, a Myers treatment has been shown to produce a gratifying response within even a few minutes. Widespread appropriate use of this treatment has shown that the Myers Cocktail would greatly improve the health of many individuals, while likely reducing the overall cost of healthcare. Today, many physicians recommend or even administer a Myers Cocktail, and it is only increasing in popularity because of its wide ranging benefits. In addition, many relatively healthy patients have been seeking out periodic Myers Cocktail infusions for preventative measures and overall well-being.
While the exact recipe of the original Myers Cocktail is unknown, Dr. Myers himself may have varied the doses depending on the condition of the patient and the use. The nutrients comprising the Myers Cocktail include: Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Calcium, and Magnesium. At Vitaliv, we have developed most of our treatments, including “Reset”, our own version of the original Myers Cocktail, using the Myers formulation as the base. Depending on the category and use, we have tweaked our formula slightly for each treatment, and added other nutrients that have shown to be beneficial for that specific treatment. For instance, our athletic recovery and performance treatments contain a Myers base, as well as glutathione and a variety of essential amino acids clinically shown to improve recovery time and enhance productive output, among other nutrients.
