About Our Myer’s Cocktail IV
No, this isn’t a drink available during happy hour although it may help increase your mood. Myer’s cocktail is an IV nutrient formula originally used by physician Dr. John Myers and refined by Dr. Alan Gaby. It contains a variety of vitamins and minerals to support energy and mood. Because it is administered intravenously, it by passes the digestive system and increases serum levels of nutrients higher than can be obtained orally. Which means the full dose of nutrients is quickly available to tissues and cells to support energy and mood.
The Myer’s IV cocktail has been shown to be effective for a number of health conditions such as muscle spasms, fibromyalgia, fatigue, mild to moderate depression, seasonal allergies, athletic performance and supporting cardiovascular health (GABY’s book). Think of it as a multivitamin in a bag able to provide a quick boost for your mood and energy. It contains magnesium, calcium, vitamin B12, vitamin B6, vitamin B5 and vitamin C.

How to Book a Myer’s Cocktail IV Therapy
All IV patients are required to have a 1st IV therapy visit prior to booking specific IV treatment. Your first IV therapy session is designed to review your goals and to ensure that IV vitamin therapy is safe and effective for you. Your Naturopathic Doctor will assess your overall health, your treatment goals, and your medical history to ensure your safety and to ensure the vitamin drip best-suited for you is recommended. During the first visit, an initial mini IV will be given to assess your tolerance to IV therapy. If IV therapy is deemed a positive addition to your healthcare regime, your doctor will have you go for blood work to assess liver and kidney function. To be eligible for an Anti-Aging IV, a liver marker known as G-6-PD must also be tested. A small percentage of the population is deficient in this and as such cannot processed higher doses of vitamin C so we have make this blood test a requirement in in order to ensure that the Anti-Aging IV is safe for you. Once we have your blood work, we can proceed in booking your next Anti-Aging IV appointment.
