What are the main symptoms people have with long Covid?
The symptoms of long Covid (Post-SARS-CoV-2-/Covid-19-Syndrom (PSCS)) can vary, overlap and fluctuate, however the most common symptoms include extreme tiredness, shortness of breath, pain or tightness in the chest, problems with memory and concentration, heart palpitations, dizziness and insomnia.
How is science and medicine approaching treatment for this?
The science behind long Covid is still relatively young given the fact that Covid-19 has been around for little over a year.
At Buchinger Wilhelmi, the fasting protocol we use in our clinics has been extensively researched over 100 years and is scientifically proven to improve factors we believe can be relevant for recovery from long-covid symptoms, including reducing BMI and inflammation of vital organs.
Therefore, we can link some of our fasting stay results towards the improvement of long-Covid patients in our clinic observations.
In the future, we will most likely see medical drugs as well as clinical protocols that treat the various symptoms described as long Covid.
