GOING VIRAL

Ah-choo. You tried your best to fend off the flu all week but finally get a surrender. The sniffles you felt earlier on have now changed into a full-blown attack. Your cold has gone viral.

There’s no cure as such for the common cold. The medication we use only suppress its effect but it’s after effect always remains there.You have to wait it out.

How to get a speedy recovery from Viral Fever?

Here are certain nutritional tips though could work and speed up recovery from viral fever.

PROTEIN

While you are nursing your flu remember to consume lean proteins like eggs, fish, chicken, pulses, quinoa.

Recommended dosage : 1 gram / kg body weight

Example: if your weight is 56 kilos you need to consume 56-60 gms of protein a day

VITAMIN C

Vitamin C boost up our immunity. It detoxifies bad stuff from our body. Amla is the richest source of Vitamin C, Kiwi also source of Vitamin C

Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 helps build immunity & work as a catalyst for recovery. It can be found in animal foods including dairy products and eggs. If you are vegetarian takes B12 prescribed by your doctor.

PROBIOTICS

Probiotics keep your intestine clean. Probiotics can be found in drinkable yogurt options like Chaas etc

MULTIVITAMINS

If you find it hard to exactly isolate foods that contain the above-described nutrients, switch to multivitamins option. But get it prescribed by your doctor & avoid its overdose otherwise it causes side effects in form of allergies.

I never recommend multivitamins for more than 20 days to patients. Instead, ask them to take in short courses, and meet up the nutritional requirements by having Complete Healthy Diet Plan. Are you taking enough Nutrition into your diet? do share.
