Hand tremors can arise for many medical reasons, so a proper medical diagnosis must be made before treating your hand tremors. If you hand tremors are a result of nutrient deficiencies, you may benefit from a treatment called the Myers Cocktail, which is given intravenously and includes a variety of vitamins and minerals to stop muscle spasms and tremors. Dr. Alan Gaby, a biochemist, has modified the original Meyers Cocktail and used it to treat a variety of illnesses, including muscle spasms and cramps.
