If you’re over the age of 45 and have started noticing some subtle changes, then you’re probably starting to feel a little more than just a bit geriatric. These age-related changes give you wrinkles, saggy skin, and other telltale indicators that your time has come. But if you can fight back those pesky signs of aging by implementing new strategies into your routine, then it’s not all bad news. Introducing IV hydration therapy as an answer to some of the issues that come with getting older.
Research suggests that hydration is one factor responsible for maintaining youthful appearance and health in our later years. As we age, our ability to retain water decreases resulting in dryness throughout the body (and specifically in the eyes and mouth). This causes other problems like wrinkled skin, sagging eyelids, drooping chins, loss of teeth, and lowered resistance to germs which can contribute to accelerated aging. Hydrating the body properly restores moisture balance which suppresses these processes and slows down the effects of aging.
What is IV Hydration Therapy?
IV hydration therapy is the practice of administering fluids intravenously, or “into a vein.” This is done in a hospital or clinic under the care of a physician or nurse. In the U.S., you would either go to a hospital that offers IV hydration therapy or a clinic that does IV therapy and have a doctor or nurse draw your blood, clean and sterilize it, and put it in a machine that pushes fluids through the tubing directly into your bloodstream. This way, no matter what your age, you can receive IV hydration therapy from a trained medical professional. IV hydration therapy can be used to treat a number of health issues related to aging, including dry skin and lips, slow metabolism, low libido, sleep apnea, urinary incontinence, and more. Research shows that IV hydration therapy can also improve cognitive function and decrease the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
When to use IV Hydration Therapy
The first step to any treatment, including IV hydration therapy, is to speak to your physician or a Registered Nurse (RN) who can recommend the best options for your specific needs and circumstances. But if you’re seeking help with any of the following signs of aging, it may be worth speaking with a healthcare professional:
- Wrinkles – IV hydration therapy can help reduce wrinkles and give your skin a healthier appearance.
- Dry Skin – Dry skin is a common side effect of aging and can be greatly improved by IV hydration therapy.
- Low Libido – Low libido can be a side effect of aging or the result of another condition. IV hydration therapy can help treat low libido and restore your sex drive if you have it.
Why is IV Hydration important?
One of the biggest benefits of IV hydration therapy is that it can be used to treat a number of issues related to aging. These include dry skin, low libido, wrinkles, sagging skin, urinary incontinence, and more. In addition to these benefits, studies have shown that IV hydration therapy can improve cognitive function and decrease the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Key benefits of IV Hydration Therapy
- Better skin health – Apart from restoring balance and reducing signs of aging, IV hydration therapy can also help improve the health of the skin and increase hydration levels in the body.
- Increased cognition – Improvements in cognitive function can have a huge impact on your daily life, from driving to remembering where you left your keys.
- Reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease – Many studies have found that IV hydration therapy can improve cognitive function and reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.
- Increased energy levels – People who experience diminished energy levels often experience a decline in quality of life and quality of sleep. IV hydration therapy can help restore energy levels in these individuals.
- Slowed metabolism – Slowed metabolism is when the metabolic rate of a person has decreased, resulting in a decrease in the amount of energy a person has. IV hydration therapy can help reduce this effect.
- Increased immunity – Aging individuals are more prone to infections and toxins in the body. IV hydration therapy can improve immunity and increase resistance to infections.
- Improved sleep quality – A quality sleep is crucial to a healthy lifestyle and life. IV hydration therapy can help restore quality sleep in older individuals. – Faster recovery from illness – Faster recovery after illness is essential for a healthy life. IV hydration therapy can help restore normal metabolic function and metabolism.
Can you do an IV Hydration Therapy yourself?
Yes and no. While it is possible to perform the process of IV hydration therapy on your own, you would need to be certified as a medical professional with additional training and experience. This would allow you to safely administer IV fluids and help with potential complications, such as hypotension (low blood pressure), fluid overload, and allergic reactions. While this is possible, it’s often recommended that you work with a medical professional to safely administer IV fluids. This type of treatment is not common or readily available in clinics and hospitals, so working with a medical professional that specializes in IV therapy would be ideal.
