Did you know that Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine can accelerate the recovery from Covid and Long Covid Syndrome (LCS)?
Long-COVID syndrome (LCS) is a difficult and frustrating health care issue. Common lingering symptoms include cough, fever, difficulty breathing (dyspnea), muscle pain, joint pain, fatigue, gastrointestinal symptoms, and loss of smell (anosmia), and taste disorders (dysgeusia). Recent studies reported lingering Covid-19 symptoms in 61.9% of people at 3 months and 30% of people at 9 months post-infection. These are some pretty disturbing statistics, but I have some really interesting acupuncture results to share with you!
An early study has reported 87% of Covid-19 survivors had at least one persistent symptom 60 days after initial infection while 44% reported a lower health-related quality of life.
Currently, there are no best-practice interventions for LCS. Given the insufficiency of treatments for LCS, it is imperative to better understand symptom profiles and develop treatments to alleviate the lingering symptoms and improve quality of life.
How does Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine help?
Acupuncture has been shown to regulate anti-inflammatory pathways, restore the nervous system, and thereby regulate immune responses, sleep quality, energy, and multi-system dysfunctions.
What we have seen clinically at AcuHaus is that the following common LCS symptoms can be regulated with acupuncture or herbal therapies:
Afternoon Fevers or Intermittent Fevers
Muscle or Joint Pains
Nerve Problems (Tingling, Burning, Numbness)
Loss of Smell
Loss of Taste or Taste Irregularities
Intestinal upset (Diarrhea/Loose Stools/Constipation/Indigestion/Heartburn)
Any of our providers at AcuHaus can expedite your recovery and quickly get you back to your former self! Please share this information with anyone you know that is suffering and having a difficult time recovering.
