IV Nutrients
Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapies and IntraMuscular (IM) Shots

All of the cells of the human body require small amounts of micronutrients, which are vitamins and minerals, to efficiently operate basic, daily
functions of your metabolism. A deficiency of micronutrients can alter your metabolism and result in a variety of physiologic dysfunctions,
resulting in pain, fatigue, inflammation, hormonal imbalances, etc. Micronutrient deficiencies may not show up on standard serum blood tests
and are thus commonly missed.

Although micronutrients are present in the diet, sometimes they are not well-absorbed due to gastrointestinal diseases or acid-reducing
medications. There are also limitations of the maximum absorption of oral supplements. Therefore, IV infusion / IM shot can raise the blood
levels of these substances more than oral dosing, allowing them to rapidly enter the cells where these nutrients can help improve your

The use of IV micronutrients (calcium, magnesium, trace minerals, Vitamin C, and B vitamins) for patients has been used for decades. It was
popularized by a Baltimore physician named John Myers, who treated fatigue and fibromyalgia patients with his IV Myers Cocktail.

We view this therapy as potentially useful in conjunction with the “L.E.A.R.N” and “S.E.N.S.E” holistic approach to help with Stress reduction,
Exercise, Nutrition, Sleep optimization and personal Engagement. IV/IM nutrient replacement alone will NOT result in meaningful health

Micronutrient IM Shots:

Are you finding it hard to “eat healthy” all the time or have you taken lots of supplements
without much benefit? Well you could have an absorption problem, negatively impacting
your nutritional and overall health status. Nutrient injections allow you to receive nutritional
therapy of vitamins and minerals, given through an intramuscular injection, allowing for a
more direct and rapid route to your circulation. As a result, nutrients are absorbed more
quickly, providing them with the needed nutrition to function optimally. Here is an overview of
some of the nutrients that can be given by injections and how they benefit the body.

B12: Methylcobalamin is the activated, bio-available form of vitamin B12. This vitamin
crosses the blood brain barrier for a focused impact on brain function. It also plays a
significant role in red blood cell production, nervous system function and acts as methyl
group donor in methylation reactions. Methylation is a very important process involved in
lowering homocysteine levels (high homocysteine levels increase your risk for the
development of blood clots), improving cardiovascular health and may be important for the
prevention of cancer due to the protection of DNA. This particular vitamin requires adequate
stomach acid and a healthy gastrointestinal tract for absorption, so if you take acid reducing
medications, like Prilosec, Zantac and other acid blockers, as well as Metformin, you are at
risk for B12 deficiency.  A regular blood test for B12 can be “normal,” even when you are
deficient, so make sure you have your MMA level checked as well. B12 is also an important
supplement for vegetarians. Symptoms or conditions related to B12 deficiency include:
dementia, depression, irritability, psychosis, peripheral neuropathy, megaloblastic anemia
and increased risk of stroke or heart attacks. Supplementation of B12 is known to improve
stamina and energy, assist with mental clarity, elevate the mood, support weight loss and
enhance metabolism, improve sleep quality. Therapeutic doses may assist the treatment of
fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, headaches and migraines, shingles, neuropathy
and neurological disorders. Caution if also using SSRI antidepressant drugs or antibiotics.

B-Complex: are the following water soluble B vitamins: B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3
(niacinamide), B5 (dexpanthenol), B6 (pyridoxine). As a whole, B vitamins play an important
role in healthy nerve cells and proper functioning of the nervous system. They are also
largely responsible for the conversion of carbohydrates into usable energy, as well as the
metabolism of fats and proteins. B vitamins support and enhance the strength and quality of
the skin, hair, liver and assist in maintaining the muscle tone of the gastrointestinal tract.
B1 (thiamine) is primarily utilized in the body as an assistant to the cellular conversion of
carbohydrates into energy. Thiamine is also essential for healthy functioning of the
muscles, heart and nervous system. Deficiency is common in alcoholics and may be an
increased possibility in patients who use diuretic, anticonvulsant or cancer drugs.
Deficiency symptoms can include a poor appetite, nausea, depression, constipation,
numbness and tingling of extremities and muscle weakness. Therapeutic doses are
necessary during times of higher demand like in strenuous physical exertion, feverish
conditions or malnourishment, pregnancy and breast-feeding and during adolescent
growth. Thiamine may also be helpful in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, congestive
heart failure and Cancer.

B2 (riboflavin) is central to the production of energy through assisting with the
metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It also supports antioxidant functions in the
body and participates in numerous biochemical reactions that involve the metabolism of
several other vitamins including Vitamin B6, niacin, folic acid and iron. Deficiency is
common in alcoholics and any patient with inadequate dietary intake, which is seen in
anorexic patients. Athletes and the very physically active may also have a higher need for
riboflavin, as well as in patients with hypothyroidism or adrenal insufficiency. Deficiency
symptoms can include sore throat, redness and swelling of the lips, cracks or sores on the
outside of the lips, inflammation and redness of the tongue. Therapeutic doses may reduce
and successfully treat headaches, migraines, cataracts and acne rosacea.
B3 (niacin) is involved in 200 known biochemical reactions responsible for producing
cellular energy from the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. The nervous
system, digestive system and skin are most affected by a niacin deficiency. Inadequate
intake and some less common health conditions can create poor niacin status. Symptoms
of a deficiency could include depression, memory loss, disorientation, headache, fatigue,
vomiting, diarrhea, a bright red tongue, rough skin, skin rashes. Therapeutic doses of niacin
can benefit patients with insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, high cholesterol,
cardiovascular disease, HIV/AIDS and cancer, skin related issues, depression, insomnia
and indigestion.

B5 (dexpanthenol) is a critical precursor to a coenzyme involved in several chemical
reactions that are necessary for sustaining life. Specifically, it serves a role in creating
energy from food, producing essential fatty acids, cholesterol and steroid hormones,
production of neurotransmitters and melatonin. This vitamin is fuel- power for the adrenal
glands; therefore, additional requirements are needed during times of acute or chronic
stress. Therapeutic doses may also accelerate wound healing and lower cholesterol. This
vitamin is contraindicated in patients with hemophilia.

B6 (pyridoxine) participates with approximately 100 enzymes in the body, which affect
positively affects the function of the nervous system and neurotransmitter production
(serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrine, GABA), immune system, red blood cell formation,
steroid hormones and the formation of niacin. Women on oral birth control pills and
alcoholics are at greater risk for deficiency, in addition to any patient who has inadequate
dietary intake due to malnourishment or digestive insufficiency. Symptoms of a B6
deficiency could present as irritability, depression, confusion, inflammation of the tongue,
sores or ulcers of the mouth and at the corners of the mouth, as well as seizures.
Therapeutic doses of pyridoxine can be helpful in the treatment of: depression, ADHD,
fatigue, nausea in pregnancy, PMS symptoms (breast tenderness, cramps, mood
changes), lowering homocysteine levels to improve cardiovascular health (with B12 and
folic acid), common colds to enhance immune function, Alzheimer’s, kidney stones and
carpal tunnel syndrome. B6 may also be important for athletic endurance because of its role
in red blood cell formation and cellular energy production. This vitamin is contraindicated in
patients undergoing treatment of Parkinson’s disease with the medication Levodopa.

Myers Cocktail

Probably the most popular IV Nutrition is the Myer’
s Cocktail, named after Dr. John Myers, M.D. who
used IV injections to treat his patients for a variety
of health conditions. The Myer’s Cocktail IV is a
mixture of B Vitamins, Vitamin C and minerals
(such as Magnesium Chloride, Calcium Chloride,
Selenium, Pyridoxine, Dexpanthenol,
Hydroxycobalamin).  Many chronic health
conditions that could benefit from this treatment
includes: blood pressure, fatigue, depression,
mental clarity, asthma, migraines, infections,
fibromyalgia, muscle spasm, chronic sinusitis,
upper respiratory infections, seasonal allergic
rhinitis, cardiovascular disease. The Myers
Cocktail is helpful because it bypasses ineffective
absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, enhances
the healing process, promotes greater health,
promotes greater ability to absorb nutrients, and
promotes the use of nutrients orally.
