Those who suffered coronavirus often notice: during and after the illness there are problems with memory, and thinking seems “inhibited”. This is a consequence of the virus on the central nervous system. How to deal with it?

Loss of smell and disturbances in the brain

Covid-19-a unique infection. It is caused by a virus, in affected lungs gives an absolutely rheumatological picture and, in addition, is a neuroinfection. With such a unique “set” humanity has encountered for the first time.

One of the frequently found signs of Covid-19 is the loss of smell. This is the result of the impact of the virus on the first traumatic brain nerve-olfactory. And this suggests that the rest of the brain is also subjected to its action.

“Summarizes the memory” and “I think poorly”

More and more articles come out that the aged COVID-19 has cognitive impairment-memory deterioration and a decrease in mental activity. People say about themselves that they “slow down” and forget simple things from everyday life.

For example, a patient of 45 years old said that she stood at home with a cup in her hand and did not understand when she took her and where she needed to put her

Another woman at the age of 69 shared: “I was discharged from a covid hospital and brought to the house. I stood at my native entrance and could not figure out how to go inside!»A 42 -year -old woman described her condition after discharge:“ Two weeks after the hospital, I had a very strange inhibited condition. I had to constantly control myself – as if I had drunk alcohol and I must seem sober. “.

Especially often, these violations are found in the elderly,

but also able -bodied people of a younger age, it happens, even forced to quit work, because they consider themselves not so intellectually active as before the illness.

How to recover

Restoration goes on realistic estimates from six to nine months. What helps in rehabilitation?

1. Charging and walking

Another observation that was recorded by my colleagues around the world: after coronavirus there is a noticeable decrease in tissue mobility. This story was overlaid on the period of universal quarantine, when people began to go less and show physical activity. A decrease in the mobility of the tissues themselves adversely affects the state of the whole organism and in itself leads to a reduction in the life of life.

What to do? If you can already go out and we feel confident – first go on a short walk in the yard

Then in the yard, then around the house, twice around the house – and so on. If we do not feel confident, then at least at home, lying in bed, knead the joints: we bend the knees, rotate outside and inside the feet, wrists, elbow joints, shoulder, hip.

At the same time, we focus on stretching. We reached for the right, left, forward, backward. They twisted their heads – just not fast, but slowly, gradually increasing the amplitude. Without violence against yourself, but regularly repeating the entire cycle.

2. Nutrition and vitamins

It is important to eat very well – not a lot, but varied. It is best to take tests for vitamins and trace elements that are missing in the body and take appropriate monopoline. In any case, it is worth drinking vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, selenium, magnesium.

There are dietary supplements that contribute to the restoration of cognitive abilities-with L-serin (this is an amino acid), turmeric, ink and other natural ingredients. Before taking vitamins and additives, you need to consult your doctor, especially if you have chronic diseases.

3. Osteopathy

What is neuroinfection? This is an infection that affects the nerve tissue, that is, the brain. And everything that affects the brain affects it, and it has long -term consequences.
