The symptoms of Parkinson's disease can cause severe discomfort and pain.
Finding ways to manage Parkinson's symptoms can be difficult. If you’re living with the disease, there are things you can do to lessen the impact of Parkinson's on your life. For instance, thousands of people use IV hydration therapy to help with symptom management of Parkinson's disease and other neurological conditions.
IV hydration can help you live a better life with Parkinson’s disease by improving your motor skills and cognitive status.
Symptoms of Parkinson's Disease
Even though the causes of Parkinson's disease are unknown, it appears to be caused by the destruction of dopamine-producing neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta, a part of the brain.
Parkinson's disease is a nervous system disorder characterized by tremors, muscle stiffness, rigidity, and problems with muscle control.
As a result, patients with Parkinson's disease frequently experience movement and mobility problems.
The disease usually starts slowly and progresses over time. Furthermore, symptoms typically appear in middle age but can occur at any age. Simple tasks like dressing, cooking, and going to work can become problematic.
Other symptoms include:
- Tremors or shaking in one or more limbs
- Muscle stiffness and mobility issues
- Inability to walk or climb stairs due to slowness of movement
- Imbalance, slurred speech, and drooling
- Difficulty chewing, swallowing or speaking clearly
- Constipation, urgency, or frequency of urination
Benefits of IV Hydration Therapy for Parkinson's Disease?
Parkinson's disease is a crippling neurological disorder characterized by tremors, slow movement and speech, and imbalance.
Medication to relieve symptoms is the primary treatment for Parkinson's disease. Unfortunately, many patients do not respond well to these drugs.
IV hydration therapy, on the other hand, may help some Parkinson's patients reduce the severity of their symptoms.
It could be because IV hydration therapy, such as the Myers' cocktail, bypasses the GI tract and directly infuses IV fluids into your bloodstream. As a result, your cells absorb more nutrients than through oral routes.
Moreover, IV hydration involves the administration of normal saline containing vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. Since the body cannot function as well when it is dehydrated as when it is hydrated, the Quencher IV infusion helps the body's natural processes, such as muscle and heart function.
IV hydration therapy may also help with Parkinson's disease-related muscle stiffness and tremors. Furthermore, increasing blood flow to the brain can improve concentration and attention span.
The brain is also vulnerable to dehydration because it is composed of 73% water.
Thus, starting IV hydration therapy for you or a loved one with Parkinson's disease leads to improved well-being, a lower risk of heart disease, and better sleep quality. It may also reduce the risk of developing dementia and suffering from a heart attack or stroke.

You must first contact MN IV for your free consultation with one of our registered nurses (RNs). Visit our website or call/text 612-216-3922 to set up your appointment.
Through this process, our RN will review your medical history, symptoms and discuss goals of treatment with you. All information will be reviewed by our Medical Director and an infusion recommendation will be made that will best fit your needs.
Once your infusion appointment is booked, a member of our RN team will connect with you prior to their arrival. They will perform a thorough assessment prior to starting your IV treatment. Plan for a 60 minute appointment time.
If you or a loved one is experiencing debilitating Parkinson's symptoms, hydration therapy may be beneficial. IV hydration can also assist you in regaining energy and stamina, which is an excellent opportunity to provide some relief from the disease.
Furthermore, indulging in a menu of IV hydration may improve movement, speech, and other symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease.
