What is Long COVID?

People with Long COVID (also known as post-COVID conditions) may develop or continue to have symptoms that are hard to explain and manage long after they have recovered from their initial COVID infection. Clinical evaluations and results of routine blood tests, chest x-rays, and electrocardiograms may be normal.

People with these unexplained symptoms may be misunderstood by their healthcare providers, which can result in a long time for them to get a diagnosis and receive appropriate care or treatment.

Lifestyle Medicine

Lifestyle Medicine is the use of evidence-based lifestyle therapeutic approaches, such as a plant-predominant dietary lifestyle, regular physical activity, adequate sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances and other non-drug modalities to treat, often reverse, and prevent lifestyle-related chronic disease.

According to the World Health Organization, 80% of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes and 40% of cancer could be prevented, primarily with improvements to diet and lifestyle.
