Covid-19 has been the dominant healthcare concern around the globe for the last 12 months. Up until now, much of the discussion has focused on the severity of the symptoms. But there has been little focus on recovery, which can be a long and difficult process.
The Covid-19 experience varies greatly from person-to-person and this is also true when it comes to recuperation. Prolonged fatigue, anxiety, depression, continued breathing issues, dulled senses and headaches are just some of the issues people can face after even a mild case of Covid-19. These disparate and recurring symptoms can make the recovery process arduous and difficult to treat.
Traditional Chinese Medicine tells us that warm diseases like viruses can linger in the body for a long time. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are effective tools in the rehabilitation process as treatments are tailored to the individual and their specific symptoms. This is why rebuilding the patient’s vital energy (Qi) and addressing areas of weakness is so important.
4 ways to help with Covid-19 Recovery
Practice Qigong. Qigong means “energy work.” It is an Asian form of movement and exercise that has been around for thousands of years. It helps balance and builds energy. Qigong Master Liu He has an immune boosting routine that is easy to follow.
Incorporate Acupuncture into your healthcare routine. Acupuncture balances our energy, helps build Qi and helps repair damage to our systems.
Get plenty of rest. Fatigue seems to plague many Covid-19 patients and this makes recovery even more difficult. Getting to bed before 11 pm is essential as this is when the body resets and detoxes according to Chinese medical theory.
Spending time in nature. Get out and get some fresh air! When recovering from any illness, it’s normal to feel frustrated or even defeated. Being in nature is calming, nourishing and reminds us that the world around us is always changing. Nothing is static and this is important when dealing with healing. It’s a step-by-step process. Patience and perseverance are necessary.
