IV Nutritional Therapy

We offer three different types of nutritional therapies, Meyer’s cocktail, PK protocol and finally glutathione IV.
Please contact the office for pricing information.

Myers’ Cocktail
The Myers’ cocktail is named after the late John Myers, MD. Myer’s cocktails contain vitamin C, magnesium, minerals and B vitamins. The cocktail can be helpful for combating chronic fatigue, asthma, arrhythmias and other conditions.

Why give nutrients intravenously?
Intravenous nutrients can achieve serum concentrations not obtainable with other routes of administration. Various nutrients have been shown to exert pharmacological effects, which can only be achieved with IV administration. For example, an antiviral effect of vitamin C has been demonstrated at a level achievable only with IV administration.
The power of magnesium: 
Magnesium is a key ingredient in the Myer’s cocktail and promotes relaxation of both blood vessels and skeletal muscle and reduces muscle spasm. In addition to having direct pharmacological effects, IV nutrient therapy is more effective for correcting intracellular nutrient deficits because some nutrients are present at much higher concentrations in the cells than in the serum and the high blood levels achieved with IV drive the nutrients into the cell.
For example, the average magnesium concentration in heart cells is 10 times higher than the concentration outside the cells. In certain disease states, the capacity of membrane pumps to maintain normal concentration gradients may be compromised.

What is the PK Protocol?


Though the PK Protocol was originally practiced in Europe, Dr. Patricia Kane  brought this program to the U.S. to help treat neurological illnesses including ALS, Motor Neuron Disease, Alzheimer’s, Autism, Cancer, Epilepsy, mold & chemical toxicity, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, Chronic Lyme, mood disorders and many others
These IV infusions mainly consist of phosphatidylcholine, with syringe pushes of leucovorin, glutathione and a shot of vitamin B12. It can be administered as much as you can handle, and is slowly reduced as your cells heal.
