Topic: Aroma Therapy for Long COVID
Abstract: Covid 19 has rocked the world for the past two years. A large proportion of individuals who have recovered from an acute COVID-19 infection continue to experience symptoms months later. However, for those suffering from what has been labeled ‘Long Covid’, there could still be a long road to recovery ahead, because there’s not much known about this growing health concern.
Post-COVID conditions can include a wide range of ongoing health problems; these conditions can last weeks, months, or years. Post-COVID conditions are found more often in people who had severe COVID-19 illness, but anyone who has been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 can experience post-COVID conditions, even people who had a mild illness or no symptoms from COVID-19. Alternative Healing Therapies, Ayurveda, and Aromatherapy are the perfect place to begin, so here I am going to present why essential oils should be on your roadmap to recovery, and how you can use them specifically to support a variety of Long Covid symptoms!
