Recovery with the help of Chinese medicine to alleviate COVID sequelae
With the increase in the number of confirmed and recovered cases from COVID-19, many people develop sequelae such as chronic cough and brain fog after diagnosis. Sequelae generally refer to symptoms that last for four weeks or more after infection, including unrelieved fatigue, dry cough, inability to concentrate, insomnia, hair loss, and depression. From the viewpoints of Chinese medicine, the developed systemic symptoms after infection are considerably exhausting. In alleviating sequelae, Chinese medicine has its advantages. Through traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, systemic qi and blood conditions can be improved. Treatment directions include nourishing qi and yin, clearing heatiness and dampness, circulating qi, and stimulating blood flow. That can help patients relieve symptoms or shorten the illness condition.
