WHAT IS COVID-19 IN CHINESE MEDICINE?
The Chinese diagnosis for COVID-19 is a cold damp invasion of the body. What does this mean? Firstly, an external pathogen has invaded the body, causing illness with symptoms of cold and damp. “Cold” in Chinese medicine can be constriction. In the case of COVID, Lung Qi has been constricted and air is not flowing well, causing breathing difficultyand coughing. Then, when Qi and fluids (or the lymphatics) are not moving as they should, the fluid can get stuck and thicken into “Damp”. This thick fluid further blocks the Lung Qi, which creates more damp. In COVID, damp can present as the thick phlegm that people cough up.
HOW CAN CHINESE MEDICINE HELP YOU?
Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicinetreats each person on an individualized level. Each treatment plan is customized to meet the patient’s needs. If someone are interested in COVID prevention, the focus will be on boosting the immune system and strengthening the vital energy. If someone currently has COVID, Chinese herbs can be sent to the person’s home,to help with a faster recovery and decrease chances of having lingering symptoms. If someone previously had COVID and still suffers from shortness of breath, we can help improve lung function and restore energy flow.
A long-term patient called our office saying that her child has tested positive for COVID-19. The child has a cough and severe fatigue. After the phone consultation, herbs for the child were sent to their home. After taking the herbs, the child was back to her energetic self with little to no symptoms. A few weeks later, she tested negative. A new patient came to our office with shortness of breath since having COVID six months ago. Right after treating her with cupping and acupuncture, she said that she has not breathed this well since getting COVID. We sent her home with some Chinese herbs. In the follow up, she said her breathing has continued to improve.
