No matter where you go today, you’re bound to run into evidence of the coronavirus. Whether it’s a mask mandate, vaccine discussion, or extra sanitary measures, the virus has impacted our lives.
For some people, that impact was on their health. They don’t have the virus anymore, but the illness wreaked havoc on their bodies while they did.
If that sounds like you, you’re probably tired of dealing with the long term side effects of this virus.
Luckily, the field of healthcare never stops moving forward. If you think you’ve tried everything, you could be surprised by these treatments that are known to counteract corona’s long term ailments.
4 Treatments That May Counteract The Effects of Corona:
1. Respiratory Treatments.
One of the most common side effects of the coronavirus that lingers long after the virus is gone is a breathing issue. Your respiratory system can get hit pretty hard since this virus attacks the lungs.
Depending on the severity of your illness, you might have had pneumonia, lung abscesses, or acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Other victims of corona have mild symptoms of the virus, but end up with symptoms last long after the initial infection is over.
Treatment for this starts with joining the support community, where you can find suggestions you might not have considered yet. In addition, you could be eligible for monoclonal antibody therapy. Antibodies are made naturally by your body to increase the effectiveness of your immune system.
2. General Malaise Recovery.
Do you feel like you’re tired all.the.time. since you had the virus? You can’t get enough sleep, no matter how much rest you get? And your body is always achy for no apparent reason?
This general fatigue and malaise are common with long term effects of corona. Recent studies suggest that getting vaccinated after the virus has run its course could significantly reduce these symptoms in at least half of those infected.
If you were vaccinated and still developed the disease, a double vaccination can counteract any long term effects before they kick in.
3. Mental Health Treatments.
The medical field isn’t the only industry that had to evolve to handle coronavirus patients.
Statistics on mental health diagnoses have skyrocketed since the pandemic began. Between isolation, financial problems, and relationship issues, depression and anxiety are in almost every home.
Insurance companies have adjusted their stance on mental health counseling as a preventative measure. Now, many private health insurances and Employee Assistance Programs offer counseling services free of charge or at significantly reduced rates.
In addition to counseling and therapy, another major change states have made is allowing easier access to medical marijuana. The positive effects of cannabis on anxiety and depression were already well known. However, getting approved for a medical marijuana card was a complicated requirement for those who wanted to use weed legally.
Not too long after the pandemic reared its head, it was clear that the forced quarantines and isolation were having serious impacts on our mental health.
As marijuana sales increased in state approved dispensaries in almost every state, and the applications for MMJ cards rose, the link was undeniable. The long term effect of pandemic related anxiety and depression became more widely accepted as a reason to approve the use of medical cannabis.
4. B12 Injections for Fatigue.
Physicians often prescribe B12 injections for people with low levels of this vitamin. Lack of B12 usually shows up as side effects like trouble sleeping soundly through the night and daytime fatigue. Low energy levels, dizzy spells, and “brain fog” are common indicators of insufficient B12.
In long haulers after dealing with the virus, fatigue is a common symptom. Researchers believe that B12 injections can help fight vitamin deficiency and reduce the impact of the virus.
If you’re dealing with tiredness that you can’t shake, talk to your doctor about B12 injections. Your insurance should cover them.
Or, if you want to try the treatment without the help of a medical provider, you can do that, too. B12 clinics specializing in IV therapy are popping up in busy malls and shopping centers all over the country.
However, we strongly advise to first consult with your doctor or a medical professional before you make any serious decisions regarding your health.
What you should remember?
You did your best to avoid the virus when corona hit the scene but ended up with it anyway.
The good news is that you successfully recovered and are on the road to better health.
With these four treatments, you may be able to shake the long haul effects of the virus and get back to your pre virus self.
