Post Viral Fatigue – Can Homeopathy help?

Infections and Fevers

Most of us will have experienced having had a ‘Flu’ virus or ‘Tonsilitis’ or many other viruses, they are very common conditions and are known as ‘Acute’ as they usually run a course of around 7-10 days with full recovery being around 14 days. However, we are seeing more and more people who are left with lingering symptoms lasting far longer than they should and which cause anything from mild discomfort to complete debility, this is known as Post Viral Fatigue.

Symptoms include:
  • Unexplained muscle pain
  • Unexplained joint pain
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Non-restorative sleep
  • Cough
  • Sore Throat
  • Headaches
  • Breathlessness
  • Poor Concentration
  • Excessive Fatigue

Post Viral Fatigue has been a growing issue over the last few years and recent studies have shown that the number of cases being reported has increased significantly following the COVID-19 Pandemic.

By now, many of us are familiar with the idea of ‘long COVID‘ – a lingering post-viral illness that can follow a COVID-19 infection. The British Medical Journal defines ‘long COVID’ as “illness in people who have either recovered from COVID-19 but are still reporting lasting effects of the infection or have had the usual symptoms for far longer than would be expected”.

The Homeopathic approach to this issue is to look at each case individually, assessing each clients symptoms and how they are experiencing them. It is likely to take a few consultations to restore balance to the system as many remedies may be needed to facilitate recovery.

Personally, I like to offer a Homeopathic Detox Programme, which is prepared for each individual based on their specific symptom picture and taking into account their vaccine status.
