The History of John Myers IV Therapy

The John Myers IV therapy was originally developed by the late Dr. John Myers in Baltimore in 1954 and served as a form of IV micronutrient therapy. Dr. Myers developed what is now known as the Myers Cocktail to help with chronic medical conditions such as asthma, fibromyalgia, fatigue, migraines, and more. When Dr. Myers passed away in 1984, his patients sought out alternative micronutrient treatments across the nation to help them combat these chronic conditions, reaching out to his colleagues in hope of a solution. The Myers Cocktail endured (or the banana bag IV, if you prefer) through the very clients Dr. Myers crafted it to assist, carrying his mission forward onward into the 21st century.

Benefits of the Myers Cocktail IV

The John Myers IV contains normal saline, B Complex, B12, calcium, magnesium, and Vitamin C infused directly into your bloodstream, bypassing your gastrointestinal tract altogether. This helps to avoid the “potency penalty” of these nutrients being broken down. This, in addition to saline’s osmolarity matching that of the plasma of our cells, makes better use of the micronutrients it contains and allows them to be absorbed more efficiently by our bodies.
