Your Mother Always Told You to Drink Lots of Fluids.
When you get a cold or the flu and want to recover fast, you need specialized care to ease your symptoms and get you back on your feet. Sickness makes you feel somehow too hot and too cold at the same time. Your head feels like it’s stuffed full of cotton, and all you want to do is curl up with a bowl of soup, except that you have no appetite.
And you’re also dehydrated.
Hydration is extra important when you’re sick. Your body loses a lot of fluid through the symptoms of a cold or flu, and not eating and drinking properly means you are not replacing important water and nutrients. Your cells, which are mostly made of water, are spending all their energy trying to fight off the sickness, and they are running out of ammo.
Drinking lots of fluids is important, of course, but sometimes it just isn’t enough. After all, you might have to battle your cold for days or even weeks if you wait for it to go away on its own.
Don’t wait it out. Fight back with Boost’s Cold & Flu IV hydration therapy. Our concentrated formulation of 11 powerful ingredients including Vitamin C, Zinc and Selenium will help knock out colds and the flu fast. We know your time is valuable, so come to Boost Hydration today and get back to your favorite activities fast. Our relaxed spa setting and a simple 30-minute IV hydration treatment will have you feeling good as new.
Cold and Flu Symptoms
How do you know whether you have a cold or the flu? With so many overlapping symptoms, it can be hard to tell without going to the doctor.
A cold usually lasts a week, and you are contagious for the first two to three days. If your symptoms last longer than a week and don’t appear to be improving, you may need antibiotics for a bacterial infection. Cold symptoms include:
- Sore throat
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Possibly a slight fever
Flu symptoms are usually more severe and come on suddenly. The flu may last anywhere from a few days to weeks. Most symptoms improve slowly over two to five days. These include:
- Sore throat
- Muscle aches and soreness
Whatever you have, you’re probably feeling tired and miserable, and over-the-counter cold and flu medications only do so much. If you find yourself feeling early symptoms of a cold or the flu, or your cold or flu won’t seem to go away, our IV fluids packed full of vitamins will reduce your symptoms and help you recover faster.
10 Home Remedies for Cold, Flu, and Cough Relief
Along with IV hydration therapy, try these home remedies to relieve cold, flu, and cough symptoms
1. Natural Cold Remedies
Take zinc, vitamin C, and Echinacea to reduce symptoms.
2. Hot Shower
Take a warm shower and make it into your own personal sauna.
3. Steam Tent
You can accomplish the same thing with a pot of boiled water. Bring the water to a boil and take it off the heat. Then drape a towel over your head to make a tent. Lean over the water with your eyes closed and breathe deeply through your nose for about 30 seconds.
4. Warm Compress
Place a warm, moist compress or washcloth on your forehead, nose, or cheeks. It has a similar effect to steam.
5. Nasal Irrigation or Spray
Use a bulb syringe or neti pot to clear out your nasal cavity, or try a salt water or decongestant nasal spray.
Most people’s go-to remedy: sip some hot chicken soup. Add some pepper, garlic, or curry powder for added benefits.
Add spices to every meal, not just soup! Garlic, ginger, chili peppers, and horseradish can help reduce congestion.
Gargle salt water to clear out mucus in your throat.
9. Rest Up
Stay in bed, even if you think you’re too busy to take a break.
10. Stay Hydrated!
As always, drink plenty of fluids!
