Covid-19 has affected millions worldwide and left many with persistent and debilitating symptoms, which can last for several months. This condition is known as Long Covid-19 or Long Haul Covid.
People experiencing Long Covid-19 suffer many symptoms, making it challenging to manage and treat with conventional Medicine alone. This is where Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine come in as effective complementary therapies.
Understanding Long Covid-19 Symptoms
The symptoms of Long Covid-19 can range from mild to severe, and it can be challenging to manage. Common symptoms include:
shortness of breath
chest or stomach pain
joint or muscle pain
and mood changes
Other symptoms include headaches, changes in menstrual cycles, brain fog, and a pins-and-needles feeling. People with Long Covid-19 may experience several symptoms at once, making it difficult to manage and treat.
How Chinese Medicine Works
Chinese Medicine treats the pattern of the disease and the individual who has the disease. Each person presents differently, and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. This makes Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine effective in treating Long Covid-19 symptoms as they are tailored to the individual. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal Medicine work together to address the underlying pattern of symptoms that are specific to each person. Western science needs to be better equipped to study Chinese herbal Medicine due to its individualistic approach to treatment, making it difficult to research. However, some herbs, such as Ginger and Astragalus, have been well-studied for their benefits.
