Nothing is worse than flu season. Sometimes it feels like your whole family falls like dominoes when the flu hits your house. With current medical advances, doctors can now tell you “yep, it’s the flu” and even the strain, but other than a dose of Tamiflu, there isn’t much you can do other than rest and get plenty of fluids. We all know how just lifting a glass or eating can be exhausting when you feel ill but hydration is the key to recovery. And while your body has to fight the infection on it’s own time, IV hydration can be excellent supportive care.
Signs, symptoms and treatment
We all know it. The scratchy throat, headache, runny nose, fatigue, chills and muscle aches that put you down for the count. Stock up on your favorite decongestant and tissues plus a fever reducer, and always check in with your doctor about what you should take and how often.
There are many additional home remedies like chicken soup, electrolyte beverages, steaming your face/head, eating raw garlic, elderberry syrup, gargling with salt water, and even a sinus flush like a neti pot. These are all good options that might help reduce your symptoms. And another great tool that packs a big punch with minimal effort is an immunity focused IV.
