Stem cells are non-specialized cells, meaning that they do not initially have a specific function but can become any type of cell in your body. This versatility means they can promote new tissue growth and repair. Stem cells can continue dividing and growing after treatment, where they can create additional stem cells or become specialized cells and continue regenerating tissues throughout your body.
Stem cells are a source of interest in regenerative medicine. While your body has a natural repair mechanism, there are limits as to what it can do. Stem cells have the potential to make repairs and regenerate damaged tissue when your body’s capability and traditional medicine have reached their limit.
Stem cell IV therapy is an innovative treatment that can benefit individuals with chronic pain, chronic diseases, degenerative diseases, and more.
There are many potential sources of stem cells; Drip Hydration uses FDA-compliant stem cells sourced from donated umbilical cords. These stem cells are collected safely following strict protocols, after which the umbilical cord blood is taken to a lab and processed for use in regenerative medicine.
Umbilical cord stem cells are a “…rich source of hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and MSCs, which possess enormous regeneration potential…”. In addition, the extraction process is non-invasive and safe, and the cord blood contains a higher yield of stem cells than other sourcing methods.

Unlike injections of stem cells, which are used to target specific areas such as an injury or a problematic joint for localized healing, stem cells administered intravenously have the potential to reach every organ in your body. Since stem cells can become any type of cell in your body, there is almost limitless potential as to the application of this innovative treatment.
During treatment, stem cells travel through your bloodstream and become available to organs and tissues throughout your body. Stem cells naturally seek out damage in your body, so when they reach their destination, stem cells becomes the type of cell in the area, where they promote healthy cell function and repair.
Umbilical cord stem cells (USCS) in particular hold considerable potential as to the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. There are many ongoing studies for applications in improving the outcomes of or reversing Alzheimer’s Disease, and researchers are optimistic about the future applications of stem cells for treating Alzheimer’s Disease.
Stem cells have been studied as a potential way to repair damaged tissue after stroke, repairing the heart after a heart attack, and in the management of the symptoms of chronic pain. Stem cell injections have regenerated cartilage in the knee and improved joint mobility and function when used as a treatment for osteoarthritis. Stem cells may assist in managing type 1 diabetes by helping bone marrow produce insulin, a hormone that is necessary for proper metabolic function.
In addition to these roles, stem cells appear to play a role in “…neural, myocardial and osteogenic regeneration, as well as in wound healing…”. Stem cells may also improve symptoms of “…spinal myelitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and congenital neuropathies”.
Stem cell IV therapy may improve a variety of symptoms associated with age and chronic disease, including:
Stem cell IV therapy has the potential to improve a wide range of conditions and promote cellular regeneration, but there is no single ‘right’ path for everyone. Our medical director will consult with you to develop a treatment plan tailored to your individual health goals and medical history.
Stem Cell IV therapy works much the same as any other type of IV treatment. A RN will arrive at your home with everything needed for the appointment. The nurse will insert an IV line that is attached to the infusion bag of saline solution and stem cells. The bag will then be hung above your head since IV therapy bags are designed to let gravity carry the fluid into your veins.
You can watch your favorite show or movie, work remotely, or socialize during the appointment. Your nurse will stay with you during the appointment and watch for any adverse effects. Our treatment takes 30 – 45 minutes to administer and is delivered directly to you in the comfort of your home, office, or hotel.
In-home stem cell IV therapy is the latest advance in the field of regenerative medicine. Drip Hydration is thrilled to offer at-home appointments for your convenience.
