IV Infusion by Intergro Thearpy
INTEGRO IV Vitamin Therapy as a tool to replenish a patient’s micronutrient and nutritional status. Studies have found that IV vitamins can be a powerful way to improve many health conditions and achieve optimal health and wellness. IV vitamin therapy is an effective and efficient treatment to replenishing vitamins and minerals because it bypasses the digestive system, allowing for 100 percent absorption.
Food or medications such as multivitamins, must be chewed or swallowed whole. They pass down the esophagus to the stomach where the acidic environment begins the breakdown. The small intestine then starts the process of digestion and absorption. Enzymes break the food stuff down into their smaller molecular pieces, and eventually to amino acids (the building blocks of proteins).
The small intestine absorbs these amino acids, and passes them into the blood where they are carried to the liver. The liver acts as our primary detoxification organ. It receives everything that we put into our body and processes it to be transported in the blood or excreted as urine or stool.
Assimilating the vitamins and minerals from our food is a long and complex process. There are many steps that can be interrupted, and this is where vitamin IV therapy comes in. 100 percent absorption is ensured through INTEGRO IV Vitamin Therapy because the vitamins and minerals can be administered directly to the blood. Therefore, many different types of patients can benefit from vitamin therapy, and much more efficiently than by taking food or medication orally.
Includes a blend of IV fluids, vitamins, and antioxidants to cleanse your body and supercharge your immune system to fight off illness.
The Meyer’s Cocktail
A Myer’s cocktail is a Nutritional IV Therapy. It is named so after Dr. John Myer and is commonly misnamed a ‘Meyer’s cocktail.’
It is unknown what the true “Myer’s cocktail” was, as there was no written account of the exact treatment. Patients of John Myer reported that he used a 10-mL syringe to perform a slow vitamin push of various nutrients into the vein. Today, IV nutrient therapy or IV vitamins is used interchangeably with the name Myer’s cocktail and consists of various different vitamins and minerals in combination to treat specific diseases.
The Myer’s cocktail is now done in an IV bag, rather than a vitamin push from a syringe. The patient receives more hydration and nutrients this way. Common nutrients found in IV vitamin therapy are:
The Myer’s Cocktail:
•Magnesium chloride hexahydrate(20%)5 ml
•Calcium gluconate(10%)3 ml
•Hydroxocobalamin(1,000 mcg/ml)1 ml
•Pyridoxine hydrochloride (100 mg/ml)1 ml
•Dexpanthenol(250 mg/ml)1 ml •B-complex1001 ml
•VitaminC (500 mg/ml)5 ml •Sterile Water 20 ml
•Back pain, muscle spasms, MS, depression, epilepsy, DM, tremor, PD, arrhythmias, CVD/CAD, hypertension, migraine, cluster headache, PMS, abdominal pain, constipation, osteoporosis, asthma, stressdependent disorders, tinnitus, ataxia, confusion, and spasms.
Associations of dietary magnesium intake with mortality from cardiovascular disease: the JACC study,” Zhang W, IsoAtherosclerosis 2012 April, 221(2): 587-95.
The Myer’s cocktail can be personalized to any patient for their specific needs. For example, a “migraine cocktail” can be formulated for a patient suffering from chronic migraines.
The Myer’s cocktail also differs from a ‘banana bag,’ which is administered in the hospital. This is because it it has many more vitamins and minerals and it is formulated to treat specific conditions for each individual patient. A typical banana bag contains thiamine (vitamin B1), folic acid, and magnesium sulfate and is in either normal saline or dextrose water.
Nutritional IV therapy is safe when administered by a qualified practitioner who has completed the certification course and knows how to calculate the osmolarity of the solution being administered.
Post-Surgical IV Vitamin Therapies
Though it can be used to treat everything from the common cold to certain cardiovascular conditions, IV vitamin therapy is especially useful when applied in a post-op care setting.
After undergoing a medical procedure, your body may need additional help to heal properly. With extra nutrients and vitamins provided intravenously, patients can expect to heal faster and with fewer complications.
For example, when recovering from any type of wound, collagen (a natural substance produced by the body) provides structural integrity and support for the skin. Vitamin C is a compound that stimulates and increases the amount of collagen produced by the body. During the treatment, Vitamin C and zinc (another compound related to collagen production) are used to promote the production of collagen, resulting in faster and more effective healing of body tissues.
Why is IV vitamin therapy better than vitamin pills? After surgery, your body will require over 100 times more vitamin C than usual, and IV recovery treatments have been shown to be more effective in the healing process than orally-ingested vitamins.
Who can benefit from nutritional IV therapy?
Everybody can benefit from vitamin drips! Today, most people are under chronic stress, not getting enough sleep or adequate nutrition, and are feeling run-down, tired and in pain. Vitamin IV therapy is a great way to address any deficiencies in vitamins or minerals and reach optimal nutrient levels and hydration status.
