Long Covid


Initial research suggests that a significant proportion of individuals diagnosed with Covid-19 do not
recover fully after the ‘usual’ 7-10 days.

Some studies suggest that more than 30% patients are still experiencing symptoms after 2-3 weeks and a
minority continue to suffer symptoms weeks and months after the acute illness. This experience is being
called ‘Long Covid’.

These symptoms include:
Fatigue
Breathlessness
Headache
Joint Pains
Muscle Aches
Brain Fog (cognitive impairment)
Anxiety and
Depression.

Investigations and analysis are ongoing across the world to try and explain these ongoing symptoms.
However, it is highly likely that the physiological changes of Long Covid are similar to those found in
CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome) / ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) / Fibromyalgia - all of which
conditions can be triggered by a viral illness.

Through its cellular action on Oxygenation, Energy Production, Cell Repair and Regeneration, plus the
activation of the (healing) Parasympathetic Nervous System, as part of a wholistic recovery programme,
Vital Air Therapy has been shown to improve the above symptoms and support recovery from these
conditions.

Recommended usage is the Vital Air 5+, at least 20 minutes’ daily, for safe, effective re-balancing and
regulation of the body system during and after an infection such as Covid-19 or Long Covid.
