The Effects of Long Covid and Immunity

By Karen Morris

We all know that the Covid-19 virus has had a detrimental effect on all of us in many ways these last 2 years, but what about those who are now experiencing “Long Covid”?

Studies in Australia are showing that people who are exhibiting symptoms that are lingering for weeks, sometimes up to eight months after having the virus, are experiencing dysfunctional immune activity.

Meaning that long COVID features increased levels of specific biomarkers in the body, and people are suffering from low immunity, fatigue, shortness of breath and respiratory illness long after the virus had left the body.

It is still unclear whether this is because of virus persistence, virus antigen, or auto-immunity post-infection.

Researchers have found that even those who have had mild infections are experiencing immune dysregulation.

As it’s still so new to us, it’s still too early to determine why some people get long Covid and others don’t. Researchers have not been able to find any patterns in someone’s age, sex, or even how different strains of the virus impact long-term immune health.

What we do know is that it’s crucial for you to work on your immune health now, even if you’ve only had a mild case of the virus.

Taking the right herbs and supplements to support and boost your immune system will not only help to reduce inflammation in your body but also help with lung repair and get your energy levels back to where they should be.

Here at Herbs Online Shop, we have a great protocol for regaining your immune system health.

Our first go-to is our CV-Lung Immune Herbal Mix. It’s designed to help clear and strengthen the lungs, boost immune health and reduce the length and severity of viruses.
