Across the country, communities are steadily returning to normal, with citizens embracing friends and activities they haven’t been able to take part in for well over a year.
Yet, for some, the effects of the pandemic continue to linger on. Especially with those who find themselves suffering from what has come to be called “COVID-19 long-haulers” syndrome.
For some, the disease continues for those who suffer symptoms long after their initial diagnosis and long after many others of similar profiles have recovered. It’s estimated that a projected 10%-30% of people continue to experience complications for as long as months following their initial infection.
What symptoms should you be on the lookout for, and what may make up lingering effects of COVID-19?
- Chronic fatigue
- Brain Fog
- Anxiety and depression
- Shortness of breath
- Difficulty concentrating
- Muscle Pain and Joint Pain
Given the emerging nature of the disease, it can be frustrating to lack more clear answers about the best course of treatment. At Balanced Healing of Jacksonville, we have successfully addressed long haulers in post-covid clients.
One option is to work with health practitioners who are skilled at helping you to manage overall wellness. Holistic care and alternative approaches to medicine can significantly impact the overall health of patients who may be struggling with the long-term effects of this disease or other common ailments. What is essential is that patients are willing to make their own personal commitment – making potentially necessary changes to their diet and lifestyle when necessary. Healing is not the same linear journey for all of us; it requires an attitude of excitement and motivation to not merely conquer a disease but to embrace a better, more sustainable way of living.
