Acupuncture and Ozone Therapy
The battle against COVID-19 has been a challenging one for many, and for some, it doesn't end with the clearance of the virus from their system. Long COVID, a condition characterized by persistent symptoms after the acute phase of the illness, can be a daunting and painful journey.
Peter's Long COVID Journey
"Covid was rough on everybody, but I was extremely unlucky since my cough caused me to tear muscles in my chest and side. I've pulled muscles before, but I've been in so much pain, and my chest was very swollen. I kept coughing long after my Covid symptoms disappeared, and my chest and back were still in pain. Months went by, and I wasn't healing; I mean, how do you rest an area that you use to breathe?" shares Peter S. of Bloomfield.
Peter's story is not unique. John was experiencing debilitating phlegm that would cause him to wake up choking and unable to breathe, while Betty was suffering from fatigue so severe she could barely go to work. She, too, had a debilitating cough that would keep her up at night. Cristina, on the other hand, developed severe anxiety, something she had never encountered before, and it was wreaking havoc on her work that involved a lot of public speaking. Those are just some of many individuals with Long-term COVID-19 who face persistent and challenging symptoms that disrupt their lives. However, their journeys took a remarkable turn when they sought treatment at Sasha Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine.
Sasha Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine's Approach
Sasha Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine has been at the forefront of treating COVID "long-haulers" since the early days of the pandemic. Dr. Aleksandra Mihajlovic, DTCM, LAc, specializes in providing protocols that combat lasting fatigue, headaches, cough and phlegm, shortness of breath, anxiety, and pain, common symptoms in long COVID cases.
Dr. Aleksandra shares her insights, "In Peter's case, his battle with COVID strongly affected his muscle tissue's ability to heal and repair. Beyond the body just being terribly fatigued from fighting a very challenging infection, his cells were nearly depleted of oxygen. At Sasha Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine, I have several cutting-edge solutions that I use to treat injuries of this nature, and at the forefront of those is O3 Renewing Therapy TM. John and Betty both benefited from the addition of the personalized Chinese herbal Formula.
Ozone Therapy: A Unique Approach
Sasha Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine incorporates ozone therapy for various conditions. Ozone, an energized form of oxygen, has a positive, lasting impact on joints, muscles, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, and tissues. When administered by a licensed professional like Dr. Aleksandra, ozone has been shown to not only reduce inflammation but also promote the regrowth of new tissue. This makes it a viable option for pain management and an optimal alternative to surgery, resulting in enhanced and effective healing."
Peter's journey to recovery from COVID highlights the potential benefits of innovative therapies like acupuncture and ozone therapy. While Long COVID remains a complex condition with much to uncover, Sasha Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine offers hope and healing to those who continue to struggle with its effects.
