There are so many different things that can affect your energy and immunity. Stress is one of the biggest offenders, but aging, lack of a balanced diet, and not getting enough exercise can also affect how you feel. If you’ve been listless, dragging, or are concerned about cold and flu season, we have an all-natural solution for you.
Behnam Khaleghi, MD, at Pacific Rheumatology Medical Center, in Tustin and Laguna Hills, California, is an expert in administering the Myers’ Cocktail. Dr. Khaleghi understands how vitamin deficiencies can make you feel, and he has several tools at his disposal to get you back on track to a healthier, happier life.
A Myers’ cocktail delivered intravenously could be the remedy you’ve been searching for. Dr. Khaleghi prescribes a Myers’ cocktail to patients in overall good health who simply need a boost of energy and immunity, but this treatment — packed with vitamins and nutrients — does many things for your overall health.
Why are vitamins important?
A Myers’ cocktail is a blend of several nutrients and vitamins that are essential to optimal health. Vitamin deficiencies could be the source of your low energy and low immunity.
You already know how good Vitamin C is for your body, and this essential vitamin is part of our Myers’ cocktail treatment. The intravenous infusion is also packed with other nutrients you might not know as well — all designed to give your body some much-deserved help.
One of the essential vitamins in a Myers’ cocktail is B-12. It’s extremely important for your energy levels, as it helps your body to turn carbohydrates into energy. Vitamin B-12 also plays a role in the proper function of your blood cells, nerves, and other parts of your body. If you eat a vegan diet, it’s important to make sure to get enough B-12, as it’s only produced in animals.
Vitamin B-6, or pyridoxine, is also important to the functioning of many areas of your body. Like, vitamin B-12, pyridoxine aids in the production of red blood cells, and the proper functioning of nerves. Vitamin B-6 helps your body turn carbs and amino acids into energy.
Vitamin B-2, or riboflavin, has a different job from vitamins B-12 and B-6 — it helps to metabolize several vitamins. Riboflavin processes your B vitamins so they can do their job. Making sure that you have enough riboflavin helps keep your energy levels healthy.
Vitamin B-1, also called thiamine, is as essential to the health of your nerves and red blood cell production as vitamins B-12 and B-6. And like those vitamins, your body doesn’t produce vitamin B-1 — so without getting enough of it from your diet, you can become fatigued and irritable.
Should I care about the minerals?
Of course you should! The vitamins in the Myers’ cocktail are very important to your health, but so are the minerals in the solution. Vitamins and minerals work together to keep your immune system and other bodily systems strong and healthy.
Popularly known for its bone-protecting qualities, calcium is crucial to your overall health. While it’s essential for strong bones and teeth, it’s also important for your muscular and cardiovascular systems. Getting enough calcium isn’t just about supporting your energy; it’s about supporting your longevity.
Making sure you have enough magnesium is important to your immune system, your bone health, and the health of several other bodily systems. Magnesium and zinc work together to strengthen your immune system, and magnesium plays a role in lowering anxiety and reducing your risk of diabetes.
How do I get one of these treatments?
Dr. Khaleghi always begins with a consultation, which includes going over your medical history and any allergies you have. He wants to make sure that right treatments are matched with each patient and that our treatments can help you feel better.
The Myers’ cocktail is delivered directly into your bloodstream via an IV. This means your body gets immediate benefits from the essential vitamins and nutrients it contains. The infusion process takes about a half-hour.
