How IV Therapy Can Help You Kick a Cold

When you have a bad cold, all you can really do is rest, get plenty of fluids, and wait it out. But what if you simply can’t “lay low” for 10-14 days as severe cold symptoms sap your vitality and derail your busy life?  

As wellness specialists who offer a full scope of intravenous (IV) infusion therapy services at RVA Regenerative Wellness in Midlothian, Virginia, Jennylle Zanzi, FNP-C, and our expert team can ease your cold symptoms in no time flat. 

Here’s how IV therapy works to treat your cold and possibly shorten its duration, too. 

When your cold is making you miserable 

The average adult catches two to three colds every year. While the 200-plus viruses that can cause the common cold including various highly contagious strains of rhinovirus circulate year-round, they’re most prevalent in the winter and spring months.

A cold may be considered the mildest upper respiratory (nose and throat) infection, but it certainly doesn’t always feel mild. In fact, a bad cold can give rise to disruptive symptoms that undermine your energy and interfere with your day, including:

Taking antibiotics won’t make your cold go away faster, as these prescription medications only work against bacterial infections. Most of the time, the best way to ease symptoms for the duration of a cold infection, which is typically one or two weeks, is to get plenty of fluids and rest. 

IV therapy can treat your cold symptoms

While basic at-home care can get you through a mild cold, scheduling an IV infusion session when you have a severe cold can be very helpful. Our Myers Cocktail IV blend eases your cold symptoms and makes you feel better quickly by providing:

Simply put, IV infusion therapy is a fast and easy way to deliver immunity-boosting fluids, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants directly to your bloodstream — and in turn, straight to the cells that need them the most when your body’s fighting a cold infection. 

In addition to providing instant hydration, a single IV infusion can improve your symptoms, boost your energy and help shorten the duration of your infection. And if you have asthma or another respiratory condition, this instant “immune system boost” can help reduce your risk of cold-related complications like bronchitis or pneumonia.      

Get over your cold faster with IV therapy

Just as having regular IV infusion sessions throughout the cold and flu season can fortify your immune system and reduce your risk of getting sick, having an “acute care” IV session soon after the start of a cold can help your body fight the infection and get rid of it faster.  

How? Optimized fluid, vitamin, mineral, and antioxidant delivery to your bloodstream replaces nutrients already lost to the infection-fighting process and boosts your energy for an easier recovery. It also gives your immune system exactly what it needs to: 

IV infusion therapy is just as fast and easy as it is effective. During your 40-minute session, you can read, watch a show, or simply relax. And after your treatment, you can expect to leave our office feeling energized, calm, and significantly better than before.
