One of the more insidious things about Covid-19 is that even if you don’t have a very severe case of the illness, you could end up with long-term symptoms such as cough, fatigue, easy to tire, shortness of breath, decreased stamina (all of which resemble Chronic Fatigue Syndrome)…even digestive symptoms, heart palpitations, blood pressure issues or exacerbation of existing health problems.
There are several reasons posted in the medical community about why and how this could happen, but no clear answers or solutions are yet pinned down.
Fortunately, Traditional Chinese Medicine can help. It approached the body and its functioning differently; it doesn’t need a reductionist picture of the biochemistry of what is happening in order to improve the situation. Because it is about optimizing the balance of energetic systems in the body, this can be addressed whether the exact mechanism of the origin of the disharmony is determined or not.
In Dr. Dawn’s practice, she has now treated two Long-Covid cases. And both of them responded well to acupuncture and herbs: Within a few weeks, their coughs were gone, and their stamina improved. They no longer needed daytime naps, and could do more walking outside without feeling exhausted for the rest of the day. Within a couple of months, they were nearly back to normal.
If you are suffering with Long-Covid, please contact Dawn Potter Acupuncture to see how we can help you.

The Benefits of Less Stress
Did you know that stress can wreak havoc on more than just your mind? People that are stressed are at a higher risk of getting sick and even having certain health conditions. When you are less stressed you tend to sleep better, get sick less often, get better quicker when sick and even be in an overall better mood. Interested in reducing your stress? Here are some at-home activities you can safely try.
Take A Bath
Taking a bath can calm your nerves along with tension in the body. We recommend adding some essential oils to your bath such as lavender which can provide another relaxing element to your bath. Even if you just have 15 minutes, that is enough time to fit in a nice relaxing bath each day to help soothe the soul.
Exercise can actually release neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin, providing the body with a nice calm feeling following any burst of activity. Whether you want to jog in place for a minute or do 50 jumping jacks, getting your heart rate up is a nice way to reduce stress.
Many people find meditation to be a daunting task, but it shouldn’t be. Even just two minutes of focusing on your breathing can have profound effects on your overall stress level. We recommend finding a nice quiet place to just sit down and focus on your breathing for as many minutes as possible.
