Our wellness center Lubbock Advanced Physical Medicine here in Lubbock, Texas, offers several different types of intravenous (IV) therapies for patients. That's because IV nutrition therapy has become a popular approach for supplementing a diet or treating certain conditions.
Two popular intravenous vitamin infusions include the Myers Cocktail and Glutathione. Our chiropractor will talk to all patients about the feasibility and safety of such treatments and can provide insights into this type of therapy.
What Is the Myers Cocktail?
Some patients tend to be skeptical when it comes to getting vitamins pumped into their bloodstream through an IV. Many doctors, including ours, use these infusions to treat various conditions, such as fibromyalgia, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome, muscle spasms, and more.
The ingredients in a Myers cocktail (named after its creator, the late Dr. John Myers), include vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, and B vitamins. Though the mix is used by many doctors today, variations of it do exist. Our goal is to match the perfect treatment for each patient.
More about Glutathione
Have you ever heard a reference to "the body's master antioxidant?" If you have, it was likely a reference to Glutathione. This compound, made of three types of amino acids, is created naturally by the liver in healthy people and has gained attention for its health benefits.
Glutathione therapy has been used to help people with age-related or degenerative diseases. It has also been used in patients being treated for certain conditions, and for someone who can't produce enough Glutathione naturally.
