What are Long Haul Symptoms (persistence symptoms), and what can you do about them? Find out!
What can you do when you continue to have symptoms after an infection? Let’s talk about this.
When you continue to have symptoms after a virus, it is known as a post-viral syndrome. This happens because of three reasons:
• Viruses crease major oxidative stress in the body
• The infection itself
Viral infections cause free radicle damage that can take a long time to recover from—especially if you do not have a large antioxidant reserve.
Infections also deplete vitamins and minerals, which can cause chronic fatigue and other symptoms related to nutrient deficiencies. Nutrients act as antioxidants.
One of the most common residual problems after covid is chronic fatigue syndrome, which includes symptoms like:
• Muscle fatigue/pain
• Brain fog
• Difficulty breathing
• Post-exertional malaise
• Chest pain
• Bouts of sweating
• Loss of smell
• Poor memory
These symptoms are common with a deficiency in nutrients like vitamin B1 and B3.
The best nutrients for long-haul persistence symptoms are:
1. Selenium – 200mcg
2. Vitamin D – 20,000IU
3. Vitamin B1 – 50mg 2X daily
4. Vitamin B3 – 500mg 2X daily
5. Vitamin C – 500mg
6. Zinc – 50mg
7. Magnesium – 400mg
Studies show that 42% of people with post infection long haul symptoms are selenium deficient, and 76% are vitamin D deficient. Make sure you replenish crucial nutrients to help support your infection recovery. *
