IV Therapy Q & A

What is IV therapy?

Intravenous nutrient therapy, or IV therapy, is an efficient way to replenish your body’s fluids and nutrients by infusing them directly into your bloodstream. Unlike oral supplements, which must be processed through your digestive system, IV therapy delivers vitamins, nutrients, and fluids intravenously, so you experience the numerous benefits almost immediately.

Dr. Tangchitnob customizes your IV therapy based on your body’s specific needs. During the treatment, you relax comfortably in the office while you receive the solution through an IV drip.

One of the most popular IV therapies includes the Myers’ Cocktail, originally developed by John Myers, MD in the 1970s.

What’s in the Myers’ Cocktail?

The Myers’ Cocktail therapy typically includes important nutrients nearly anyone can benefit from, including:

  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • B vitamins
  • Vitamin C

Dr. Tangchitnob may also recommend adding a boost of glutathione — a powerful antioxidant. Glutathione combats free radicals in your body and acts as a detoxifying agent to help keep you healthy and free from harmful chemicals that are in the foods you eat and in the environment.

What are the benefits of IV therapy?

One of the notable benefits of IV therapy is that receiving nutrients and vitamins intravenously means your body absorbs up to 90% of the essential nutrients. When you swallow an oral vitamin, your stomach and digestive tract break down the ingredients and you absorb a smaller percentage of the supplement.

In addition to giving your body an instant boost of nutrients, IV therapy rehydrates your body and treats a wide range of health conditions. For example, the Myers’ Cocktail has been associated with an improvement in pain and other symptoms associated with:

  • Acute asthma attacks
  • Migraines
  • Fatigue
  • Acute muscle spasms
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Sinusitis
  • Seasonal allergies
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Depression

IV therapy may help improve your overall health and wellbeing, as well as provide a boost of energy. Many people find they have some pain relief after receiving IV therapy.
