In the 1960s, Dr John Myers, a doctor from Baltimore, pioneered the use of intravenous (IV) vitamins and minerals as part of the overall treatment of various medical conditions such as acute asthma attacks, migraines, fatigue (including chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, acute muscle spasm, upper respiratory tract infections, chronic sinusitis, seasonal allergic rhinitis, cardiovascular disease, and other disorders.
However, the acceptance and popularity of intravenous nutritional therapy (IVNT) in North America, South America, the Middle East and the Far East is owed to Dr Alan R Gaby, who took over the care of the late Dr Myers’s patients in 1984 and continued to treat various medical conditions using his modified Myers’ Cocktail. Since this time, more recent advances in IVNT include the addition of amino acids to the modified Myers’ Cocktail.
IVNT is largely offered to promote general health and wellbeing using different cocktails of vitamins, minerals and amino acids which aim to help boost one’s immunity, aid athletic performance, for re-energising, to assist with diet and detox, as an anti-oxidant booster, promotion of hair growth, and to lighten or whiten the skin.
The substances used in IVNT are Vitamins, Minerals, and Water, all of which are classified as 'Essential Nutrients'. It's an apt name, as they are ‘essential’ for life, however they are also nutrients that the body cannot synthesize on its own. Traditionally they were obtained from food we eat, but modern food is often modified and over processed, leaving many of us with poor gut health and severely deficient in these essential nutrients.
By balancing our levels through IV infusions, under expert advice, our bodies can be restored to peak fitness and maximum energy performance.

What is Vitamin D
Vitamin D is often referred to as the ‘sunshine vitamin’. Sunshine really does make us feel good. In fact, in winter months, a number of people suffer with a form of depression called Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), which is caused by a lack of sunshine. 90% of our body’s Vitamin D is made in our skin from sunlight exposure, which is great if you live in the Mediterranean or South Asia, but not in sunny Britain.

Vitamin B12 Injections
Are You Getting Enough Vitamin B12?
Vitamin B12 is a vitamin that is essential for life. It is needed to make new cells in the body, such as the many new red blood cells which are made every day. Your body doesn’t make Vitamin B12. That means you need to get it from food or supplements. Vitamin B12 is found in meat, eggs and milk, but not found in fruit or vegetables.
A Vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to anemia and other health related problems. By injecting Vitamin B12 intramuscularly we ensure that it gets to work straight away and that nothing is lost via the digestive tract. A true bio-hack.
