Functional medicine center Patients Medical (212-794-8800) announces its intravenous Myers’ cocktail hydration therapy for Bronx, NYC residents.

Following the announcement, the practice offers the Myers’ cocktail as part of its IV therapy treatments, first administered by Dr. John A. Myers in 1954 and since used by physicians to alleviate a range of symptoms. The traditional Myers’ cocktail consists of calcium, magnesium, vitamin C, and a blend of B vitamins, and is delivered into the bloodstream intravenously.

Patients Medical’s Myers’ cocktail treatment complements the center’s many vitamin and nutrient IV combinations and is now offered for patients particularly struggling with dehydration. As revealed in several studies published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the Myer’s cocktail has also proven effective against migraines and chronic fatigue. Patients suffering from upper respiratory tract infections, acute asthma attacks, and fibromyalgia have also been shown to benefit.

While dehydration has obvious immediate physical symptoms like extreme thirst and dizziness, prolonged dehydration can cause more severe complications. Patients with chronic dehydration can experience muscle cramping and fatigue, and eventually develop cognitive impairment or poor kidney, heart, or digestive function, Patients Medical explains.

Though excessive sweating from heat or physical activity is often the cause of dehydration, other underlying health conditions like kidney disease or diabetes can also be the culprit. As such, any therapy at Patients Medical begins with an in-depth consultation to identify the root cause of a patient’s symptoms and allow the team to develop an IV treatment plan based on their diagnosis.

Patients Medical offers the traditional Myers’ cocktail formula but can also complement it with other essential vitamins, nutrients, or amino acids as appropriate. Electrolytes like sodium or potassium may also be added to the therapy of patients with severe dehydration, as well as glutathione, an antioxidant that supports immune function.
