Because of this exposure the probability of respiratory problems is greatly increased.

Although there are many respiratory diseases, common ones that can cause symptoms and illness are:
- Upper respiratory tract infection
Some of these diseases may require pharmaceutical interventions for severe cases. The good news is there are steps you can take to give your body an opportunity to prevent severe illness.
Dr. John Myer developed a therapeutic, intravenous solution in the 1960’s. His intention was to create a blend of minerals and vitamins that can be delivered intravenously. The idea behind this intravenous therapy was to bypass the digestive system in order to make the vitamins and minerals available for immediate use. By bypassing the digestive system it was discovered that the body could not only absorb the nutrients more efficiently, but nutrients could also be absorbed at higher concentrations in order to feel and see results in less time.
The Myer’s cocktail offered at SOHMA Integrative medicine centers in Long Beach and Lakewood CA provides an infused blend of vitamin C, vitamin B complex, Magnesium and calcium delivered in a saline solution that can also help in rehydration.
A disease of the lungs in which they become inflamed when exposed to certain pollutants triggers. These triggers can be as simple as pet dander and dust which are relatively manageable. Compared to mold and outdoor pollution, which are more challenging to manage. Each case is different so knowing your personal triggers is very important.
Although nothing replaces a rescue inhaler, IV therapy may be used in order to better manage some common triggers of asthma as well as being effective against acute asthma attacks. By reducing the oxidative stress on the bronchioles, the vitamin C may reduce hypertension due to ints anti inflammatory properties.
Upper Respiratory Tract Infection
A very common viral infection that affects many people every year usually targets the nose, throat and airways. Upper respiratory tract infection’s symptoms are rarely severe and usually only last a couple weeks at most unless underlying issues are present. Though during this time the symptoms may include sore or scratchy throat, nasal congestion, coughing and sneezing.
With the blend of magnesium and vitamin C, symptoms tend to lessen or vanish after the end of a therapy session due to their anti-inflammatory characteristics. Some symptoms may return the following day but usually at a lesser severity and most patients tend to have symptoms for shorter periods of time.
Due to the concentration of vitamin C in the blood. Myer’s cocktail substantially fortifies your immune system and although this won’t prevent you from developing severe cases of respiratory problems, it becomes much easier for you to avoid things such as seasonal allergies as well as viruses like the common cold and flu. Naturally by preventing illnesses, your body’s immune system is stronger and ready in case it needs to fight something worse.
By increasing vitamin B complex levels in your bloodstream, your body significantly lowers the risk of lung cancer. Having good levels of B vitamins also helps with producing red blood cells, which carry oxygen through your body.
As a bronchodilator magnesium relaxes the bronchial muscles in the lungs to expand the airways which allows more air to flow in the lungs which can relieve some asthma symptoms and prevent major asthma attacks.
