Benefits of RLT for recovery from Long Covid
Red Light Therapy is highly effective in helping your body recover from viruses such as Covid 19. Viruses attack the body and the body fights them. This comes at a cost though and frequently the efforts of the bodies cells in repelling the virus results in long standing effects such as fatigue, generalized aches and pains, poor exercise tolerance, poor quality sleep and in the case of Covid 19, shortness of breath and chest pain. Out of the millions of people who have contracted Covid 19 and recovered, there are thousands that continue to suffer symptoms for months after and find that recovery can be surprisingly difficult. This myriad of ongoing health problems has been termed Long Covid. Symptoms include: extreme tiredness, chest pain/tightness, shortness of breath, brain fog, heart palpitations, insomnia, dizziness, joint pain, general muscle ache, rashes, loss of appetite, depression, anxiety and changes to smell and taste. Medical management is limited and rest, diet and exercise is generally advocated. Supplementation with vitamins and minerals is also beneficial. Fortunately, Red Light Therapy shows great promise for Long Covid treatment.
