What are Intravenous Nutrition Therapy?
Intravenous or IV Nutritional Therapy delivers a controlled dose of electrolytes, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients directly into your body intravenously or directly into your bloodstream through your vein. In the 1960s, the use of IV delivered vitamin cocktails was proposed as a more effective method for delivering a dose of essential vitamins and minerals than food or pills. The most famous, and earliest cocktail of vitamins and minerals delivered to patients in this way was that developed by American doctor, John Myers, this became known as the Myers’ Cocktail. Many clinics and commercial products still use this concept. Brands include Intravita, Reviv and Vitamin Drip. IV nutritional therapies are solutions for those with a feeling of being run-down, who are in need of a ‘pick-me up’, as an anti-ageing aid, for immune system boosting, as a hydration cure for hangovers, for jet-lag or for those looking to achieve optimum sporting performance. The aim is that you will feel rehydrated and have a restoration of optimum vitamin levels and improved energy. Expect to pay £100 – £350 for a single IV infusion, depending on its ingredients and the brand used.
Nutritional Intravenous Therapy - How it Works
While largely ignored in conventional oncology for decades, intravenous nutritional therapy still plays a major key in recovering from and battling disease. But when you visit conventional doctors for any sort of treatment, they never address a patient’s diet, besides shrugging and saying, “Eat better and get more exercise.” What kind of vague, useless advice is that?
This poor mindset stems from medical schools where a physician may receive only 30 minutes of nutritional training in their biochemistry course. Then all training, including residency and fellowship is completely pharmaceutically focused. Only a select few take the time to be trained and mentor with integrative physicians that specialize in cancer treatment.

The Myers Cocktail is a micronutrient IV developed by American physician Dr John Myers containing magnesium, calcium, various B vitamins and vitamin C*.
It is used as a general health tonic for all aspects of wellbeing. We usually add selenium to the cocktail for further immune support. The Myers cocktail is probably the most popular and commonly used combination IV for general health in the world.
* The standard amount of Vitamin C in the Myers cocktail is 10g, however more can be given at an extra charge and subject to the comments about the G6PD blood test.

Intravenous Nutrition Therapy FAQs
Types of IV Nutritional Therapy
Fillers can be used all over the face to treat a variety of areas. In the upper face, fillers can be used in the tear trough, or the deep groove and dark circle under the eye to restore volume and reduce the look of dark circles and a tired appearance. Volume is often added to the cheeks and cheekbones with filler to improve the appearance of lower wrinkles and restore the youthful cheek appearance.
Dermal fillers can also be placed in the thin and deeper wrinkles of the lower face and around the mouth and jowls. These can create more fullness and reduce the appearance of sagging and aging sing in this location.
Some patients still have a lot of youthful volume but use dermal fillers to enhance certain features. The most common area I treat with volume is the lips. A variety of different fillers can be used to give a range of results from a very subtle restoration to and more pronounced "Kyle Jenner" type look.
Fillers are also being used for liquid rhinoplasty, a noninvasive technique used to improve the appearance and harmony of the nose with the facial anatomy. Deep fillers can be used to contour the face, creating a more defined jawline, chin or cheekbone to provide more structure and improve the shape of the face.
What can IV Nutritional Therapy treat?
Noninvasive procedures such as fillers are attractive because they are quick and have minimal downtime. Your entire visit will take place in under an hour. Following your injections, I usually recommend that patients avoid exercise for 24 hours and remain upright for the remainder of the day. No naps or downward dogs!
The other perk to fillers is that results are immediate. Yes, you can peek in a mirror after your procedure and see instant results! Depending on the type and location of your filler, you may experience some discomfort during or after the injections, bruising and swelling. I advise my patients not to schedule their procedure before a big social event just in case they have bruising after their injections.

fects. Additionally, they are utilized for the long-term therapy of various medical problems, typically in considerably larger dosages. Spasticity, headaches, dystonia, and extreme fatigue are all examples of this.
Anti-wrinkle injections have been used for four decades, but the therapy has evolved with time. Anti-wrinkle injections are still used by doctors today to release tension and relax sweat glands in addition to cosmetic clients.

Recovery from Intravenous Nutritional Therapy
Anti-wrinkle injections are identical to Botox injections.
Botox is a trademarked term. Botox is a word used to describe an injectable method that has multiple competing products on the market, similar to Kleenex. Botox is very commonly used.
These types of injections relax your facial muscles. They also help in reducing wrinkles and preventing the formation of creases. They last for 4 to 6 months if injected correctly; this also depends on your lifestyle and metabolism. Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to treat crows feet, wrinkles, forehead lines, frown lines, dimpled chins, Jawline Contouring, Nefertiti Neck Lifts, Bruxism and Gummy Smile Correction.
Side Effects and Risks from IV Vitamin Therapies
Anti-wrinkle injections only have a temporary effect. The length of efficacy is determined by the dosage given and the muscle mass injected. Anti-wrinkle injections can last for as long as 3-4 months on average.
Patients may notice that their anti-wrinkle injections last a lesser period or possibly stop working after repeated treatments in a small proportion of cases. In such situations, the immune system may have generated neutralizing antibodies. As a result, anti-wrinkle injections may serve as vaccination in and of itself. We use a refined form of anti-wrinkle injections to avoid this.
Impurities, such as proteins and inactive toxins, are frequently blamed for the immune reaction that fights anti-wrinkle injections' effectiveness. These contaminants are removed from the pure anti-wrinkle injection, which does not trigger an immunological response.
Post-Treatment Advice for IV Therapy
Patients who want to minimize the appearance of frown lines, or forehead lines, wrinkles around their eyes might benefit from anti-wrinkle injections. We are frequently asked where anti-wrinkle injections should be used to decrease the symptoms of ageing. While this varies by patient, the most common locations are:
- The brow/forehead
- In between the brows
- Eyes on the sides
Who should not have IV Nutritional Therapy treatment?
You should schedule an appointment with any member of a local clinic team if you want to have anti-wrinkle injections. However, these treatments should not just be used anyhow; you are advised not to use anti-wrinkle injections if:
- The ingredients used in anti-wrinkle injections cause allergic reactions
- You are pregnant or breastfeeding
- you have an infection on the injection site
- If you have a neuromuscular disorder such as myasthenia gravis
If you are unsure whether these treatments are for you, you can start by listing all the side effects and the contraindications that you can discuss with your doctor during a face-to-face meeting.
Who can administer / perform IV Nutritional Therapy?
Any anti-wrinkle injectable clinic would tell you that you may go about your business as usual. A medical doctor's only cautionary advice is to limit vigorous activity, massages, and other face procedures for up to 24 hours. Anti-wrinkle injections have benefits that are visible pretty quickly. You will notice a difference in wrinkles and fine lines after 4-10 days of using them.
