Have you heard of Long-Covid?

Many studies have revealed that one of the common symptoms of COVID is crippling fatigue. There can be other symptoms as well, such as – muscle ache, joint pain, breathing issues, constant headache, loss of smell and taste, a persistent cough. This not only affects your overall health but also leaves you with a severe mental illness as well. Depression and anxiety are the most common out of all. Researchers said that even the ones who have suffered from relatively mild impacts of COVID-19 can also be left with lifelong impact. The recent study added that patients who were experiencing more than five symptoms of coronavirus during the first week of their illness are more likely to develop long COVID. These five major symptoms can be difficulty in breathing, chronic headache, fatigue, muscle or body pain, and hoarse voice.

A recent study on long-COVID has also stated that the patients who were diagnosed with the virus won’t recover completely right away. The study was concluded that after intensive research being done on 4,000 coronavirus patients, almost 20% of them have recorded that they were still not feeling better after four weeks of recovery. The study went on to add that by the end of eight weeks, around 190 patients reported the lingering symptoms and by the end of 12 weeks, almost 100 patients confirmed that they were yet to fully recover.

By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.
