Post Covid-19 Syndrome. Is It a Real Thing?
As we come out of two years of dealing with a global pandemic, doctors are starting to see more and more Covid-19 related conditions, from heart arrhythmias and unexplained rashes to anxiety/depression and severe fatigue.
As we come out of two years of dealing with a global pandemic, doctors are starting to see more and more Covid-19 related conditions, from heart arrhythmias and unexplained rashes to anxiety/depression and severe fatigue. In fact, a peer-reviewed journal article published recently illustrated more than 50 different long-term effects of Covid-19. Topping the list was fatigue, headaches, and “brain fog,” just to name a few. The list also included joint pain, anxiety, digestive disorders, hormonal changes, and chronic cough.
At present, doctors are still struggling to understand the cause. Additionally, they are dealing with how to address the various conditions caused by the pandemic. It will be some time before it is all figured out. In the meantime, Integrative Medical Clinics like SOPHIA Natural Health Center in Brookfield, CT, is treating patients using a blend of Naturopathic Medicine and the wisdom of East Asian Medicine. For over 20 years, we have been treating patients with natural therapies that work. We have seen a significant rise in patients reporting extreme fatigue, anxiety, and pain. There are good studies being published regarding natural treatments, like the ones we have been using for years in our clinic. These strategies include acupuncture, supplements and herbal therapy, therapeutic exercise, and Tai Chi. We are so happy to give some relief to those patients who are suffering. However, we are really at the beginning of dealing with this new health crisis.
Integrative Natural Medicine is an evidence-based medical system that uses the best of science along with the wisdom of natural therapeutic systems like East Asian Medicine. East Asian Medicine is the oldest medical system in the world and today serves over a billion people in China alone. While treatment is covered by many insurance plans, including the Connecticut State Husky plans, insurance coverage is not always a guarantee. However, the treatments are very effective and affordable.
At SOPHIA Natural Health Center, the doctors look at the health of the whole body and through lab testing, proper examination, and a thorough health history, they then develop a plan that addresses the root cause of illness. This system has successfully helped people suffering from chronic pain, fatigue, the effects of severe stress, diabetes, heart disease, and much more. The clinic offers a low-cost initial consultation, including various testing, to new patients. You can call the clinic to schedule an appointment at 203-740-9300. Spanish is spoken.
