Even if you experienced a mild reaction to contracting Covid, I think most can agree that having the virus is not altogether pleasant if not debilitating. Having anything ‘flu like’ is not going to be a good time. It has symptoms that develop as you have the virus, and can also affect our bodies and health longer term, on a case by case basis. However, Covid is not something you need to take, quite literally, lying down. When the typical medical advice is to just live through it, naturopaths are here to help you work through these symptoms with remedies that help ease them in real time, and help avoid longer term issues.
How can a Naturopath help me through having Covid?
Naturopaths are qualified and dedicated to providing the tools for people to use to enjoy the healthiest version of themselves, even through sickness. While some of what we do is in the prevention sector, we tend to not see people until they have had illness be their catalyst for taking greater interest in their holistic health. Covid has been no exception. While prevention is important, there needs to be focus on what to do when you get Covid to help alleviate severe symptoms and assist in avoiding longer term problems where you can. Naturopaths are able to provide you with potent, high quality complementary supplements and treatments that you simply aren’t going to find in the supermarket.
Supplements such as zinc, in particular, can be sold very cheaply. However, certain formulations of zinc are more effective than others, and zinc should be taken under the direction of a health professional to avoid inaccurate use causing health issues.
Going to a Naturopath for your Covid symptoms can ensure you are being treated for your specific reaction to the virus, and not spending unnecessarily, nor consuming supplements you don’t need or that could make you feel worse.
Quality is so important when it comes to supplements. It’s going to be far more beneficial and cost saving in the long run to use something by a reputable company which is highly absorbable.
What will a Naturopath recommend for Covid symptoms?
We recently listed some incredible natural solutions for dealing with the symptoms of Covid. In addition to these, there are some supplements that can really assist in recovering from Covid.
- Curcumin to reduce inflammation and cytokine storm.
- Mushrooms inhibit viral replication and have strong antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties when ingested in therapeutic doses.
- Quercetin is a great anti-inflammatory and we stock a highly absorbable form of this which is far superior to high street brands.
Again, while these can be purchased through supermarket brands, high absorbency is needed for them to truly help you through the physical and mental toll Covid can provide. In addition, after you have recovered from Covid, it’s important to continue to protect your immune system with continued use of high efficacy supplementation that is specifically beneficial to you.
