It is becoming more and more difficult to get nutrients from our food. We are able to get the calories but not the essential nutrients from our diets.
This “nutritional starvation” is a result of many factors, including depleted soils (read ‘Empty Harvest’ by Dr. Bernard Jensen) and widespread use of proton pump inhibitors and other medications designed to reduce stomach acid in the stomach.
Stomach acid is needed for the digestion of your food but when it come up into your throat it increases your risk of esophageal cancer.
The “heart burn” is not a result of high stomach most of the time but rather a weak sphincter muscle that allows the acid to reflux. Thus, if your on a medication acid reflux then you are likely to have very low stomach acid and poor mineral absorption results.
Even multivitamin and mineral pills may not absorb well or be enough to overcome transport barriers across cell walls.
Many individuals can benefit from high dose intravenous nutrient therapy. It is possible that unless specific nutrients are injected directly into your veinous system, you will never be able to overcome your deficiencies. One example of intravenous nutrient therapy that has been used thousands of times safely in the United States is the Myers’ cocktail.
Dr. Magaziner’s discussion on intravenous nutrient therapy
“The Myers’ has been found by the author and hundreds of other practitioners to be a safe and effective treatment for a wide range of clinical conditions. In many instances this treatment is more effective and better tolerated than conventional medical therapies. Although most of the evidence is anecdotal, some published research has demonstrated the efficacy of the Myers’ or some of its components. Widespread appropriate use of this treatment would likely reduce the overall cost of healthcare, while greatly improving the health of many individuals.” – Alan Gaby, MD, Intravenous Nutrient Therapy:
the “Myers’ Cocktail” (Full Article)
The standard vitamin-mineral combination includes the following:
- vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin),
- vitamin B6 (pyridoxine),
- vitamin B5 (dexpanthenol),
- vitamin B complex,
- and vitamin C.
Other medications may be administered, including the following:
- selenium and other trace minerals,
- and many more.
Intravenous therapy is the only way to increase your blood levels of important nutrients for improved transport into cells.
Doctors have found intravenous nutrient therapy to be helpful in the treatment of angina, chronic fatigue syndrome, bronchitis, sinusitis, fibromyalgia, hayfever, chronic hives, narcotic withdrawal, hyperthyroidism, muscles spasms, tension headaches, and some cases of mild to moderate depression. You may notice immediate benefit from the first treatment. For others, it may take 3 or 4 treatments before you notice benefit.
The number of treatments you need will depend on your health status and the condition being treated. Some individuals obtain long-lasting relief after a few treatments, while others require ongoing treatments to maintain the benefit. The risk of serious adverse reactions is said to be low and the treatment is usually well tolerated.
The most common side effect of the Myers cocktail is a sensation of warmth, particularly if the injection is given rapidly.
