Vitamin Drip Therapy

Dr. Kerendian offers vitamin drip, one of the newest and most popular forms of antiaging therapy in Los Angeles and Bakersfield.

Vitamin drip, or vitamin IV therapy, is a form of antiaging therapy that directly introduces nutrients into the blood stream. By skipping the absorption process that nutrients usually go through, vitamin drip therapy can boost energy levels, increase immune strength and promote better bone health.

Dr. Kerendian offers vitamin drip therapy featuring a unique blend of vitamins and supplements that are customized for your antiaging needs.

What is Vitamin Drip Therapy?

The most popular form of vitamin drip therapy features the Myers Cocktail, a unique blend of multivitamins originally developed by Dr. John Myers. By introducing the vitamins intravenously, vitamin drip therapy is able to provide a much larger dose of nutrients than could be orally consumed without causing an upset stomach.

The traditional Myers cocktail is generally comprised of:

  • Magnesium
  • Calcium
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B5
  • Vitamin B complex
  • Vitamin C

The Myers Cocktail is the most popular form of vitamin IV therapy used, but it is not the only one. Dr. Kerendian frequently adjusts the ingredients to more efficiently treat problematic symptoms and conditions.

What can Vitamin Drip Therapy Treat?

Vitamin drip therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions in addition to antiaging, including:

  • Migraines
  • Muscle tension
  • Asthma
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Allergies
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Chronic cardiovascular disease

The length of a typical vitamin drip session varies based on the reason for the therapy and the amount of nutrients being used. A typical Myers Cocktail treatment session often takes up to 20 minutes, though treatment sessions may take longer.

Because the drips are typically effective for two to four weeks, Dr. Kerendian generally recommends treatment sessions at a one to three month frequency for antiaging. Treatment for specific conditions like migraines, fibromyalgia and pain management may require more frequent sessions.
