Holistic Care for Post-COVID-19 Positive Patients
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), besides being the largest public health hazard in a century, is generally known as a respiratory ailment. While the majority COVID-19 patients seek medical care for upper airway and respiratory symptoms, increasing evidence suggests that these patients are also at risk for multiple systemic complications including thromboembolic disease, blood vessel damage, and chronic fatigue syndrome. There is mounting evidence of long-term vascular damage, which can have lasting and detrimental effects on the body. The Holistic Healing Heart Center offers holistic care for patients who have tested positive for COVID-19.
Heart Damage in COVID-19 Survivors
Post-COVID symptoms can persist as long-term effects, and are often more pronounced in patients who have pre-existing conditions such as coronary artery disease, diabetes, asthma, sickle cell disease, or cancer.
Common issues for those who have tested positive for COVID are:
- Persistent shortness of breath
- Brain fog
- Myocarditis (heart inflammation)
While all are a cause for concern, myocarditis in particular could prove difficult to provide suitable treatment for on the scale that may be required. A research paper published in JAMA Cardiology found that ongoing myocardial inflammation was present in 60% of COVID survivors. Considering how many millions of people have recovered from COVID, or will contract COVID and recover pending the widespread availability of a viable vaccine, this could be an incredible strain on health care providers worldwide, but especially in countries such as the US where infection rates are higher.
