A classic IV therapy package, the Myers Cocktail was originally developed by its namesake, Dr. John Myers, who practiced medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. Dr. Myers was trained as both an engineer and a physician so he was able to apply a lot of the tools of engineering, such as experimentation and observation, to his medical practice. He became very interested in how nutrients could improve health. He used the teeth and eyes of his patients to measure the performance of the vitamins and minerals he administered. The Myers cocktail was a noted formula that boosted the immune system and many of his patients started their day with this formula.

The therapy is safe but the effectiveness is debated. The scientific community agrees that IVs are a good way to administer hydrating fluids and salts, as well as medications. They also agree that modern humans need vitamin supplementation to survive on the currently available food. They even do vitamin infusions in medical settings. But the combination of IV with vitamin supplementation is not well tested or proven to be effective by clinical research. There are a lot of mixed findings about IV vitamin supplementation.
