About this talk

More than 150 million people around the world have been infected with COVID-19, and for many people symptoms can linger for months after the initial infection. The condition commonly known as ‘Long Covid’ is a rapidly evolving situation, manifesting as fatigue, brain fog, and in certain cases psychiatric conditions such as severe anxiety and depression. With so much unknown and few guidelines to manage this array of symptoms, people are looking outside traditional medical approaches for relief. In this presentation, Jayagopal Parla — Professor of Ayurvedic Medicine at Bangalore University — will explore how Ayurveda can support those with lingering symptoms after COVID-19 infection. Learn about specific herbs, nutritional spices, dietary protocols, and detoxification procedures that may support the reduction of common symptoms associated with Long Covid and lead to increased quality of life. Professor Parla will also share insights from recent case studies of patients with Long-COVID who have used Ayurveda in their recovery.
