IV Therapy – Micronutrient Infusion

IV infusion or “Intravenous Infusion” is a medical term which describes the delivery of medicines, vitamins, nutrients or other substances directly into the body through the veins where they can be rapidly absorbed and delivered through the venous system.

IVMT – Intravenous Micronutrient Therapy

IVMT is a rapidly growing practice pioneered in the USA which has been adopted by a string of celebrities. It has also been referred to as ‘vitamin drips, as it involves the intravenous delivery of nutrients and vitamins to boost a patient’s health and wellbeing.

Intravenous Micronutrient Therapy Effects

The reported benefits of IVMT are wide and varied from general health to improvements in appearance. IV and intramuscular treatments are designed to combat common problems such as:

  • fatigue
  • dehydration
  • sickness
  • common cold
  • dry skin
  • poor hair and nails
  • asthma
  • jet lag

Fans of the procedure report that they feel boosted and energised a couple of hours after treatment as the rehydration and nutrients kick in.

Myers’ Cocktail

IVMT was pioneered by Dr John Myers, who gave intravenous infusions containing vitamins and nutrients to his patients. After his death, Dr Alan Gaby continued and expanded the treatment with an adapted version of the ‘Myers’ Cocktail’, a formulation said to contain vitamins B6 , B12, C and B complex, magnesium chloride, calcium gluconate, thiamine, calcium panthothenate and diluted hydrochloric acid.
