TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19?! Home remedies for mild symptoms


If you are experiencing serious symptoms such as difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, loss of speech or mobility, or confusion, chest pain, speak to your GP over the phone or attend to your closest Emergency Department.

Most people I know in Melbourne have been tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 2 weeks of 2022. Luckily most of them are presenting with mild symptoms.

COVID-19 comes up quite differently from person to person. In some cases, the symptoms also progress and change fairly quickly. This article is for those who are experiencing mild symptoms and resting at home.

What can you do for yourself at home if you have mild COVID symptoms? -THE CHINESE MEDICINE WAY

  • Go to town with peppermint/mint and liquorice tea! These herbs are cooling in nature and can soothe your sore throat.

  • Avoid having chilli, coffee, alcohol and spicy food that can aggravate the heat in the body

  • Cold showers and wipes to help cool down your body externally if you are having fevers

  • Ironically, if you get body aches, warming up your lower back with heat pack and warm bath can soothe the aches.

  • Sleep! Sleep! and Sleep! Rest is what your body needs while it's fighting off this virus. As you sleep, you are able to recuperate Qi (which is energy) in the body which then helps to strengthen your immunity (Wei Qi).

  • Eat plain and simple food that are easy on the digestion. The less stress you put on your digestion, the more energy you have to fight the virus.

  • Reach out to your herbalist. Individualised herbal medicine can also help address the symptoms you have during your isolation.

I am currently offering individualised herbal delivery services to patients who are living within the 10km radius of Sandringham, Melbourne. Please give me a call for any questions.

I hope you take care of yourself and each other in this difficult time.
