John Myers, a physician from Baltimore, Maryland, treated many patients with an intravenous nutrient cocktail therapy during over 25 years. At his death, in 1984, his regular patients sought medical assistance. Doctor Alan R. Gaby designed a cocktail inspired on Myers', which he termed the "Myers' cocktail" in honour of his originator. As of 2002, between 800 and 1,000 different patients had received this cocktail from Dr. Gaby.
The Myers' cocktail is composed of nutrients that are recognized to be deficient or involved in a variety of pathologies.
|Magnesium chloride hexahydrate 20%||2-5 mL||Magnesium|
|Calcium gluconate 10%||1-3 mL||Calcium|
|Hydroxocobalamin 1,000 mcg/mL||1 mL||Vitamin B12|
|Pyridoxine hydrochloride 100 mg/mL||1 mL||Vitamin B6|
|Dexpanthenol 250 mg/mL||1 mL||Vitamin B5|
|B complex 100||1 mL||Vitamin B complex|
|Vitamin C 222 mg/mL||4-20 mL||Vitamin C|
Asthma, migraine, fatigue, fibromyalgia, clinical depression, cardiovascular disease, upper respiratory tract infections, narcotic withdrawal, seasonal allergic rhinitis, chronic urticaria, hyperthyroidism are amongst the conditions which have responded to the Myers cocktail, according to Dr Gaby.
