Intravenous Vitamin Therapy
BY: DR. MELINA ROBERTS
This therapy involves administering vitamins, minerals and homeopathics directly into the circulatory system for a rapid therapeutic effect. The intravenous route can achieve high serum concentrations that increases the absorptive capacity by about 10-20 fold which cannot be attained with the oral route. These nutrients supply the body with potent antioxidants, they will bind and remove toxins and heavy metals from the tissues and set up a healing environment within the body.
If you were to ingest an oral nutrient, this molecule would need to be broken down by the stomach, absorbed by the small intestines then metabolized by the liver and eventually get delivered to the cell. Even if all parts of the digestive tract are functioning optimally, the amount of the nutrient that gets delivered to the cells is minimal.
For those individuals with compromised intestinal absorption (ie. cancer, Crohn’s disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome) oral absorption is even lower. The advantage of intravenous vitamin therapy is that it bypasses the digestive tract and allows for 100% absorption of nutrients and therefore offers a tremendous therapeutic value.
The adrenal glands require Vitamin C, B-vitamins, Zinc and Magnesium to function optimally. The highest concentrations of vitamin C in the entire body are located within the adrenal glands. The human body does not manufacture vitamin C, so our supply is solely dependent on our diet and supplementation. A diet low or deficient in vitamin C can effect the proper function of the adrenal glands.
An intravenous Meyer’s Cocktail infusion is a concoction made up of high Vitamin C, B-vitamins and minerals, which helps to feed the adrenal glands it’s essential nutrients. Therefore Meyer’s Cocktails can be helpful for adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue, acute and chronic infections, lowered immune function, chronic inflammatory syndromes.
