How To Combat Long COVID?

What is Long COVID?

Even if a person has mild symptoms during the initial onset of COVID, they can still develop complications and persistent symptoms later on. Technically, long COVID is defined when infection or symptoms have lasted four weeks or longer.

Symptoms may include:

  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Shortness of breath
  • Coughing
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Worsening of symptoms after physically or mentally exerting yourself
  • Digestive issues
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Sleep issues

Inevitably, these symptoms can significantly interefere with your daily life. For instance, the inability to concentrate may hinder your progress in school or at work. It can also make daily interactions difficult, as can fatigue or any of these other symptoms. They may also get in the way of your usual wellness routine, such as an inability to exercise or go for regular walks.

So, how can you feel better?

 

Tips for Easing Long COVID Symptoms

Often dubbed “long haul COVID,” some of the best advice revolves around listening to your body. For example, if you’re tired, rest. If you decide to workout, go slow and be gentle. Additionally, you may want to try the following.

1. Getting Vaccinated

Research shows that vaccination doesn’t only reduce your chances of developing long COVID but is also may reduce the severity of infection. Ensure you and your family are up-to-date on your vaccination doses.

2. Prioritizing Sleep

When the body is fighting an infection or virus, it needs rest. Even if sleeping is difficult, make sure to develop a proper bedtime routine and to go to bed and wake up at the same times each day. Sleep will significantly improve your recovery time and energy levels.

3. Eating a Healthy and Balanced Diet

While you might not be feeling your best, this isn’t a time to necessarily indulge. Rather, you want to be giving your body the best tools and resources to fight this virus so you can feel better, sooner. Make sure to drink plenty of fluids, which may include orange juice with ample vitamin C!  

If you’re experiencing digestive issues, you may want to stick with easy-to-digest foods, such as bone broth, bananas, toast, water, and proteins like eggs or chicken.

4. Using Supplements, When Needed

Supplements can also give your body a boost when it needs it the most. Depending on your specific symptoms, a few Life Nutrition supplements you may want to consider include Rapid Defence C, Probiotics, Deep Sea Fish Oil, Liver Detox, Women Everyday Complete, Men’s Everyday Complete, and NMN+.

 

Make sure to check with your doctor before taking any new supplement to make sure it won’t interact with any medication you’re already taking. At Life Nutrition, we truly believe in supporting the body with the best and purest sourced supplements possible.

 

Start feeling better by implementing the tips above. And take it slow; COVID is still a fairly new virus that we are still learning a lot about. And again, listen to your body!
