Carrying forward the tradition of research and innovation in holistic healing, Ananda in the Himalayas (www.anandaspa.com), the worlds’ leading wellness retreat has launched a new therapeutic programme to address post-COVID recovery and health issues connected to Long COVID.
Post-COVID rejuvenation Programme at Ananda
The post-COVID recovery programme will be customised for individual needs and includes
Ayurvedic & holistic therapies
Scientifically curated diet plans to enhance nourishment, boost immunity and energy
Yoga and Pranayama to unlock energy blockages and improve respiratory health
Meditation and emotional healing techniques to address psychological and mental wellbeing
The programme starts with a comprehensive psychosomatic assessment by Ayurvedic physicians, leading to identification and management of specific symptoms or multisystem dysfunction.
The wellbeing team at Ananda comprising Ayurvedic Doctors, Nutritionists, Yogis, and Integrative healers have curated a multimodal treatment protocol.
Dr. Naresh Perumbuduri, Senior Ayurvedic Physician, Ananda in the Himalayas, says, “As per Ayurveda, the extension of the disease with Ksheena Vyadhikshamatva (Low Immunity) leads to Dhatu-Kshaya (tissue depletion) & Agnimandya Avastha (weakened digestive fire). Hence, Dhatuposhana (tissue nourishment) and administration of Rasayana (herbal rejuvenation) is necessary for rejuvenation.”
Long COVID-19 refers to COVID patients who continue to experience various symptoms and do not fully recover for several weeks or months. Symptoms range from weakness (Fatigue, Headache, Fever, and Giddiness), systemic issues (Respiratory, Gastro-intestinal, Musculo-skeletal, Circulatory, Reproductive), immunity (Multisystem inflammatory syndrome, Secondary infections), and mental health issues (Memory and focus issues, Anxiety, Irritability, Brain Fog, Depression)
20% of people infected with COVID, displayed recurring symptoms five weeks after initial infection and 14% displayed symptoms 12 weeks post-infection. Survey by Office for National Statistics UK, 2021
The recommended duration of the programme for optimal rejuvenation is 21 nights. Programmes can be customized for minimum duration of 10 nights.
