IV Therapy Q & A
What is IV Therapy?
Intravenous nutrient therapy is a method of introducing vital nutrients directly into your bloodstream via a customized intravenous solution that Dr. Comia creates for your specific health conditions. In some cases, nutrients can lose their effectiveness in your digestive system as a result of poor absorption. When you receive nutrients directly into your bloodstream, you get the maximum dose of nutrients without interference from your digestive system.
What Conditions Can IV Therapy Treat?
Intravenous therapy can help relieve symptoms from a variety of health conditions, including:
- Macular degeneration
- Migraine headaches
- Viral illnesses
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Lyme disease
- Parkinson’s disease
These are by no means all the uses of IV therapy. Some adults also choose IV therapy as a way to get a boost of vitamins to improve skin health, relieve dehydration, or enjoy added immunity and beauty benefits. One form of IV therapy, called a Myers’ Cocktail, is a supplement and vitamin drip that can produce anti-aging benefits and treat several chronic diseases as well.
What are the Benefits of a Myers’ Cocktail?
A Myers’ Cocktail is a specially formulated vitamin IV drip that slowly enters your bloodstream to help manage chronic conditions and combat the signs of aging. Dr. Comia customizes each solution based on your specific needs, but in most cases, the vitamins and supplements in a Myers’ Cocktail include:
- Magnesium chloride to support your immune system and prevent inflammation
- Vitamin B complex to promote healthier hair and skin, and prevent memory loss
- Vitamin C to fight cancer and act as an antioxidant
- Calcium gluconate to boost blood calcium for strong bones
