Four Lingering Side Effects of COVID-19 - The Truth About COVID-19 'Long-Haulers'
STORY AT-A-GLANCE: FROM MERCOLA.COM
* 18.1% of individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 also received a first-time psychiatric diagnosis in the 14 to 90 days afterward. Most common were anxiety disorders, insomnia and dementia
* An estimated 10% of patients treated for COVID-19 report fatigue, breathlessness, brain fog and/or chronic pain for three weeks or longer. This phenomenon occurs even among patients who had mild cases of COVID-19
* U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data show the rate of COVID-19 patients who continue experiencing lingering health problems after recovering from acute COVID-19 may be as high as 45%
* Many post-acute COVID-19 patients fit the diagnostic criteria for ME/CFS, which has been linked to viral infections
According to a COVID-19 treatment guide, many of these “long COVID” patients do spontaneously recover — albeit slowly — with holistic support, rest, symptomatic treatment and gradual increase in activity
The concept of Long-Haulers is very, very real. We see this all the time with post COVID patients. The good news is holistic therapies are instrumental in helping these patients. Acupuncture, vitamin injections and IVs, and ozone therapy go a long way to help these patients feel like they were before getting sick. Here is a link to the entire article.
