IV Therapy at Dr. J's
It has become increasingly difficult to maintain a healthy lifestyle in recent years. Work, travel, lack of sleep, stress, and poor nutrition exacerbate the body’s natural decline of aging, and we may be relatively powerless to change on our own. If the hectic nature of everyday living has started to affect your vitality and wellbeing, IV therapy can get you back on track. With an hour of time and our help, you can begin to optimize cellular function with proper vitamin and mineral infusions.
What Is IV Therapy?
Intravenous therapy, or IV therapy, is a method of administering an infusion of fluids directly into the bloodstream. The procedure is minimally invasive and quite comfortable in our spa-like environment. During your visit, you can sit back and relax while we supervise the delivery of nutrients, vitamins, and minerals to optimize your cells.
Infusing the blood with nutrients is far different than taking a multi-vitamin each day. When supplements and vitamins are taken by mouth, nearly 85% of what the body needs is processed in the digestive system. That means it gets eliminated rather than used. When we use IV delivery, your cells absorb 100% of the nutrients they need to gain energy and functionality.
Myers’ Cocktail IV – Feel Better, Faster
We are pleased to offer the Myers’ Cocktail IV in our La Mesa & Temecula office. This vitamin infusion has been widely used since it was developed by Dr. John Myers in the 1960s. Since that time, its use was expanded by Dr. Alan Gaby, who has achieved outstanding results using this infusion to improve conditions ranging from seasonal allergies to chronic fatigue to migraines and more.
A Myers’ Cocktail contains:
Fluids. A sterile saline solution common to IV bags dilutes ingredients so each nutrient can efficiently reach the bloodstream. Fluid also hydrates the body, facilitating 100% absorption of vitamins and minerals.
Vitamin B12. This B-Complex vitamin boosts energy levels and improves cognitive function to support concentration and memory.
Vitamin C. The “immunity vitamin” is vital not only to the body’s immune system, but also to bones, muscles, and the circulatory system.
Magnesium. Studies show that most people are deficient in this vital mineral. Magnesium is involved in hundreds of biomechanical functions in the body. It supports immunity, cardiovascular health, muscle and nerve function, and more.
What to Expect During and After IV Therapy
We administer IV infusions in a comfortable treatment room where you can put your feet up and relax for your hour-long session. The insertion of the IV feels like a normal blood draw. After the initial “poke,” you will barely notice the IV in place as nutrients slow-drip through the small tube. Some people notice a vitamin taste while getting treatment, or a slight flushing sensation due to the infusion of magnesium. These are side effects that indicate nutrient absorption.
After IV therapy, some patients feel an increase in energy within a matter of hours. For others, energy increases over several days. The immune-boost obtained with the Myers’ Cocktail may lessen the severity and duration of a cold or conditions including:
Upper respiratory tract infections
