You may be familiar with the term IV drip, which is usually used in hospital settings. But an IV drip can also be used therapeutically.
“IV therapy?” you may be wondering.
Absolutely, at SOHMA integrative medicine in Long Beach and Lakewood CA, we offer IV therapy in the form of the Myer’s cocktail. Some of you may have heard of this treatment as well, but maybe you’re unsure of how frequently you should do it.
Today we are going to clear any doubt you may have about how often you should do Myer’s cocktail IV therapy sessions and what Myer’s Cocktail can help you with.
What is in the Myer’s Cocktail?
Before we get into how often you should do Myer’s cocktail, we should first understand what’s inside one of these IV drips.
Myer’s cocktail is a blend of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals suspended in a saline solution. The perfectly crafted blend includes vitamin C, B complex, calcium, and magnesium. All these nutrients are needed to be in balance for proper bodily functions.
Vitamin C is used by the body in many different ways. It works to boost your immune system, and grow and repair body tissue. The Vitamin B complex is made up of different forms of vitamin B. In turn, the body uses it to produce energy from food, lifts your mood, and improves cognitive effectiveness. Calcium helps grow and protect bones. It is also used to aid in muscle contractions. While magnesium is needed to maintain normal nerve and muscle functions.
What is Myer’s Cocktail Used For?
Myer’s cocktail has many different uses. These usages vary from person to person based on condition and lifestyle. Myer’s cocktail IVC therapy is known to help with:
- Detoxification and hydration
- Immune system support
- Boosts energy levels
- Improves cardiovascular health
- Promotes relaxation
- Good for mental health
People with athletic lifestyles may want to use Myer’s cocktail IV therapy to stay hydrated and full of energy. While an office worker can use it to relax and detoxify their body from an accumulation of toxins that may have amassed in your body simply by commuting in a large metropolitan city.
What Does Myer’s Cocktail Treat?
Besides lifestyle choices, Myer’s cocktail can serve to better your health and well-being. Myer’s cocktail has been used to help treat a number of conditions including:
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Acute Muscle Spasm
- Upper Respiratory Conditions
Myer’s cocktail IV therapy has also been shown to help alleviate seasonal allergies, sinusitis and upper respiratory infections
How Often Should I do Myer’s Cocktail IV therapy?
Generally, the frequency of use of IV therapy will be discussed thoroughly with the patient. Typically patients opt for one session every other week. For others who just want to keep their body and mind in balance one or two Myer’s cocktail IV therapy sessions per month should be enough.
However, depending on the severity of the condition the patient may be recommended to do more. Based on how bad the patient is feeling they may be recommended to have 2 IV therapy sessions per week until their condition improves. Once the condition has improved, the amount of IV therapy sessions will be reduced or ended as determined by the patient.
For those with athletic lifestyles, one session every 2 weeks to maintain a good balance of nutrients should be enough. Though you may want to have IV therapy sessions to recover for a particularly grueling workout.
