Flu season is well underway across the United States, but how to recover?
February just started and there’s already a widespread flu activity in 49 states, except for Hawaii. The Flu Virus is spread when a sick person sneezes or coughs, but can even be spread when a person just talks. The most common symptoms are off course fever and headaches combined with coughing. Normally, most people will recover two weeks or less.
How to recover fast from flu?
- Rest and stay home – The flu, unlike the common cold, begins abruptly. Out of the blue, you feel tired, your muscles ache, and your forehead feels hot. There’s no need to fight or bravely go to work. Stay home and stay warm, the CDC recommends. In fact, it’s best if you remain at home and away from others for at least 24 hours after your fever breaks so you don’t infect people who are well.
- Drink plenty of water, herbal tea and sometimes a sport-drink – Your body is dehydrated, so drink a lot!
- Home made soup – You have to eat something so your body can recover and strengthen. How made (vegetable) soup makes you feel better faster than medicine
