What is long-haul COVID?
Updated: Jan 13, 2022
Many people have heard the term "long-hauler" associated with COVID in the last few years, but what exactly does that mean?
According to Cleveland Clinic, "One study states that about 10% of people who've had COVID-19 will experience prolonged symptoms one, two or even three months after they were infected. This group, which many refer to as 'long-haulers', is mixed with those who experienced both mild and severe cases. And this condition can affect anyone - young, old, those who were healthy, those who had a chronic condition, those who were hospitalized and those who weren't."
Recent studies have shown that people who suffer from "long-haulers" are complaining of the following symptoms:
High heart rate
Blood pressure changes
Mental health issues (anxiety, depression, OCD, etc.)
Changes in smell
Changes in taste
Dealing with long-hauler syndrome requires a multi-faceted approach.
Our approach allows the individual to improve their health through adjustments, brain-based exercises, as well as proper nutrition through a functional medicine perspective. To us, no two long-haulers are alike.
