Long covid, where some covid symptoms linger for weeks or months after the initial illness, can be treated. Research is still working to understand exactly what causes long covid, and integrative healthcare can help ease symptoms in the meantime. 

Fatigue and Brain Fog: One lingering symptom of long covid is ongoing fatigue and/or brain fog. Integrative treatments can help promote deeper levels of rest and restorative practice. This type of more effective rest can free up resources in the body and mind, increasing focus and energy. 

Pain and Body Aches: Another symptom of long covid can be ongoing pain in specific parts of the body. Integrative treatment helps nourish these tissues to promote health and healing. It can also work with the nervous system to turn down the volume of pain signals, so that you are more comfortable overall. 

Changes in taste and smell: When your senses of taste and smell are affected, it can be hard to enjoy meals. Integrative healthcare can resource you with ways to work with your altered senses in ways that help you reclaim some of your enjoyment! It can also support the general health of your sensory nerves. 

Depression: Long covid is also linked to depression and other mood changes. Integrative healthcare helps regulate mood through natural biochemistry, and supports mental and emotional health. 

Integrative healthcare begins by listening to you about how you are feeling, and then works with your whole system to help you feel better. Covid-19’s lingering symptoms are not yet fully understood by medical science. They can, however, still be treated in order to relieve distress and support your continued recovery.
