Myer's Cocktail: Making the body's immune system stronger and more resistant to STRESS

Need a pick-me-up? Have a cocktail – intravenously. No, I'm not talking about a martini in an IV bag; the “cocktail” I'm referring to is a blend of vitamins, minerals and important nutrients (among them magnesium, calcium, and vitamins B and C), delivered directly into the bloodstream. Named for Dr. John Myers, who pioneered intravenous nutrient therapy back in the mid-1900s, the Myers Cocktail (as it has been dubbed) is can improve a whole host of chronic and acute conditions, from allergies to infections to migraines. Because it bypasses the digestive system, the blood carries a higher concentration of nutrients to the cells that need it most, boosting their function, and in turn helping the body to heal what's ailing it. Since there's no need to digest anything, the therapy can be especially beneficial to those with problems in that area, such as irritable bowel syndrome or Crohn's disease.

The substances used in the Myers Cocktail are safe, essential nutrients that our bodies must have in order to function. Normally we get them through the food we eat, but the processed foods of today are often lacking – and nutrient deficiencies can be linked to many illnesses. By getting those vital components into our bodies (intravenously or otherwise), we can ensure good health. That's one cocktail that, oddly enough, just might make you feel better in the morning.
