IV micronutrient treatment was pioneered by John Myers, a physician from Baltimore.
He used a combination of magnesium chloride, calcium gluconate, thiamine, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, calcium pantothenate, vitamin B complex, vitamin C, and dilute hydrochloric acid
Current formulations have been modified by Dr. Alan Gaby who took over care of Dr Myers’ patients after his death in 1984. Many physicians continue to modify the Meyer’s IV according to the needs of the patient while maintainin the proper osmolarity of the solution.
