Covid is still a very new disease that the world has been faced with. The medical world has sprung into action in so many different ways. I think we have all know someone who has had Covid or being impacted by it.
Many are left with symptoons that are referred to as ‘Long Covid’. Common long COVID symptoms include:
- extreme tiredness (fatigue)
- shortness of breath
- chest pain or tightness
- problems with memory and concentration ("brain fog")
- difficulty sleeping (insomnia)
- heart palpitations
- pins and needles
- joint pain
- depression and anxiety
- tinnitus, earaches
- feeling sick, diarrhoea, stomach aches, loss of appetite
- a high temperature, cough, headaches, sore throat, changes to sense of smell or taste
Contacting your GP is step one. Once they have ruled out any other conditions that could be causing the symptoms, and conclude that Long Covid is mostly the explanation, there are options that we can explore to help reduce or eleviate some of what your are experiencing.
One of the areas that I have helped people with is re-establishing their sense of taste and smell. People are experiencing various versions of interrupted taste and smell.
- Total loss, then slowly returning, just not correctly
- Items taste off
- Items taste bland lacking any subtleness or intensity
- The taste/smell experienced is not correct for what the item is.
Your sense of smell or taste is still working, it appears however to have crossed wires.
It is like pressing 1 on your remote control only to get ITV on your TV, or pressing 3 and getting Channel 5. The triggers and responses have some how got confused or mixed up. We can do a version of a system restore. By asking your subconscious to go back to a date prior to covid, we can make a copy of the ‘setting’ and update the present time settings, returning or improving your taste and smell.
