Surprisingly, physicians have tinkered with
intravenous (IV) technology since the Middle
Ages, when they were used for the first
experimental blood transfusions. In the early
1800s, saline IVs were used to successfully
treat cholera and post-partum hemorrhaging. But they weren’t widely used until modern
hospitals started using them in the 1950s. In the 1960s, Dr. John Myer began successfully
injecting a “cocktail” of essential vitamins into patients with a variety of medical
conditions, and thus, modern IV vitamin infusion was born.
Midstate Infusion was opened in 2020 by CRNA Brandy Snook. She offers the traditional Myers Cocktail, infused with calcium, vitamin C, vitamin B complex, magnesium and calcium. Brandy offers other infusions for a variety of needs—hydration, immunity boosting, athletic performance, hangovers—and most notably ketamine for mood disorders and chronic pain. Each treatment is personalized for the individual patient receiving it, and the vitamins are 100% bio-available when administered intravenously as opposed to only 30-40% when taking them orally.
Midstate Infusion’s IVs are FDA approved, and no doctor’s orders are required. Patients’ health histories are taken, and the whole experience lasts 45-60 minutes. For folks looking to take their health to the next level, find yourself a seat at Midstate Infusion.
