When you catch a cold or the flu, something as simple as getting out of bed becomes a gigantic task. You cope with symptoms like headaches, coughing, nausea, fever, sore throat, lethargy or fatigue, and congestion.
You end up skipping work or school and recovery seems to be far, far away. Sure, dealing with the flu isn’t the easiest thing to do. But fortunately, IV therapy for cold can be magical for helping you bounce right back to living a normal and healthy life.
Read on to understand how IV therapy for flu can alleviate your symptoms.
Catching a cold or the flu isn’t exactly a fun ride. There are a plethora of symptoms (runny nose, fatigue, sore throat, you get the gist) to deal with and countless invaders to combat. Generally speaking, it takes about 7 to 10 days for most colds to dissipate.
7-10 days, however, can be an extremely long time when you have a mountain load of things to handle and tasks to perform. Unfortunately, not everyone can afford to take several days off from their ultra-busy schedules.
Sure, over-the-counter medication can help to a certain degree. They might temporarily reduce some of the symptoms that might peak. But they don’t particularly play a role in speeding up the duration of your recovery.
This is where…
Aside from alleviating cold and flu symptoms, IV therapy packs another punch of good health: hydration.
Illnesses, not surprisingly, come with the baggage of dehydration. Let’s take a sore throat, for example. With a sore throat, something as effortless as swallowing liquids becomes painful, even if these liquids are critical to helping you heal faster. If you’re coping with vomiting or diarrhea, your body again ends up losing essential fluids. Similarly, when you have the flu, your body must receive an adequate amount of fluids to recover from the illness faster.
Unfortunately, however, when your body screams of dehydration, consuming countless glasses of fluids might do more harm than good. This is where the role of IV therapy for the flu comes in. By infusing “just the right amount” of electrolytes, minerals, and vitamins into your body, IV therapy supports your immune system and ultimately helps you feel stronger. It offers you a growing sense of energy and puts you on the fast track of recovery.
The best part? IV fluids are infused straight into the body's bloodstream. This makes them a lot more effective than your regular oral medicines. The reason? Unlike oral medication, IV fluids don’t have to get processed by your digestive system first. They kick in almost immediately and help you recover a lot faster.
IV therapy is also a lot more convenient than taking oral medication. Let’s say you’ve been attacked by the flu and you’re feeling quite worn down. You don’t have the energy to head to the doctor’s office or an urgent care clinic. This is where Hydra+’s mobile IV therapy can come to your rescue.
