Cold and Flu IV
Beat a Cold or Flu Faster with IV Hydration
When you want to recover from cold and flu symptoms quickly, you need an easy, fast-acting treatment for pain, congestion, stomach upset and dehydration. Our IV vitamin infusion for cold and flu is specially formulated with vitamin C and other powerful ingredients to reduce symptoms, replenish fluids, balance electrolytes and provide essential nutrients so your body can heal itself.
What can IV therapy help with?
IV vitamin therapy helps you fight off & recover from all types of rhinovirus and influenza infections, from head colds and upper respiratory infections to the dreaded stomach flu.
Won’t I just fight it off on my own eventually?
While commonplace, colds should be taken seriously. Complications can lead to bronchitis, sinusitis, ear infections and pneumonia.
Protect yourself from invisible illness
You or someone around you could have a cold or flu infection without even knowing. Around 25% of people infected with a cold or flu virus never experience symptoms. When one person gets sick, act fast to improve the health of your whole workplace, travel group, family or circle of friends with private group IV treatments.
Vitamins & Supplements for Cold & Flu Relief
Our concentrated formulation of IV fluids with 11 powerful ingredients including Vitamin C, Zinc and Selenium will help knock out colds and the flu fast. Many common natural supplements have a reputation for warding off or fighting illness:
Vitamin D supplements have been shown to help prevent colds, shorten the length of a cold or flu and even reduce the risk of a respiratory infection such as pneumonia.
Echinacea is an herb popular for its ability to help users get sick less often, provide relief from cold symptoms and help you get well faster.
Vitamin C has been studied for many years in relation to cold symptoms. While the jury’s still out on the ability of vitamin C supplements to treat a cold, high dose vitamin C treatments have been shown to shorten the length of your cold. IV treatments are the ideal way to deliver high doses of vitamin C directly into your bloodstream for fast and total absorption.
When you need relief quickly, add an anti-nausea boost or an anti-inflammatory boost to any treatment to target troublesome symptoms. Staying hydrated and preventing vitamin deficiencies is one of the ways IV therapy can treat pain from illness, injury, or chronic conditions. IV therapy is also a natural and effective way to reduce seasonal allergy symptoms.
Does IV therapy work for a cold?
Yes it does! IV therapy sends essential fluids and nutrients directly to your cells, giving your body the fuel it needs to fight off a cold. Check out our vitamin drip reviews where our customers share in their own words how IV therapy helped them get over stubborn symptoms even when nothing else worked.
Do IV fluids help with the flu?
Flu symptoms including fever and nausea can quickly lead to dehydration, making you feel worse by the hour. It can be hard to drink enough water to stay hydrated when you’re vomiting or simply too weak to make the effort. IV hydration takes your stomach out of the equation, rehydrating your body where you need it most so you can fight off a nasty flu in record time.
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.
Upset stomach making it difficult to get enough fluids? IV hydration to the rescue! We have an anti-nausea add-on boost and other options to customize your treatment.
How Dehydration Increases Your Risk of Catching a Cold or Flu
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.
The symptoms of dehydration can include dizziness, weakness, mental fog and rapid heartbeat (to name a few), making you feel sick.
Chronic dehydration can also make you more susceptible to the next cold or flu virus making its way around your office, daycare or grocery store. Your body uses water to flush out toxins, maintain an optimal blood volume, fight inflammation and keep your systems balanced.
When you aren’t getting enough fluids on a regular basis your electrolyte balance can be off, and you can be more vulnerable to viral infections.
Boost Your Immune System and Prevent Sickness
Getting better fast is all well and good, but what’s even better is not getting sick in the first place. When you notice everyone around you getting sick, it’s time to visit our hydration clinic for an IV therapy immune system boost or a general hydration wellness treatment. Keep your immune system healthy and hold the germs at bay.
How is the Procedure Performed?
Upon consultation and evaluation, the physician will develop an individualised treatment plan and suggest an appropriate IV detoxification procedure. A trained nurse will then insert an IV into the vein (usually in the arm or wrist), through which the appropriate vitamin, mineral, amino acid, or a combination of them will be slowly infused into the bloodstream.
Patients sit comfortably throughout the procedure, which can last between 45 minutes to an hour.
Based on various reports, iv therapy has some immediate, invigorating effect. However, repeated infusion may be necessary to achieve optimum health results. This is especially true for drug and alcohol therapy, wherein physical withdrawal has to be addressed.
Possible Risks and Complications
iv therapy is a safe, standard procedure and is guaranteed to be successful when performed by trained medical experts. Risks and complications are rare, but a small percentage of patients may experience swelling, burning sensation, tightness on skin, discomfort, or cooling sensation and blanching. Phlebitis, or the inflammation of veins caused by trauma during IV insertion, may also occur but rarely happens.
