COVID-19 infected over 50 million individuals worldwide, causing 1.2 million deaths. After more than two years of dealing with COVID and its mutations, one thing has become clear: this is not an easy virus to treat. The infection incidence is substantially higher, and symptoms could become serious quickly. Recent data indicates that after recovering from COVID-19, people showed a sharp increase in cardiovascular problems.

After recovery, even when the virus is found to be negative, it takes time for the body to regain power and immunity. As a result, it is necessary to take extra precautions following a coronavirus infection to recover faster and enhance the immune system and healthy organs.

The Post-COVID Effect

As testified by many doctors and reports, individuals recovered from COVID-19 sickness may continue to have various signs and symptoms, such as -

  • Cough, low-grade fever, and fatigue, which may recur and remit (being the most common symptoms)
  • Shortness of breath, chest pain, migraines, neurocognitive problems, muscle pain and weakness, gastrointestinal upset, metabolic disruption (including poorly controlled diabetes), thromboembolic conditions, depression, and other mental health conditions are also being reported.
  • In some cases, skin rashes of various types, such as vesicular, maculopapular, urticaria, and chilblain-like lesions on the limbs or extremities (called "COVID TOES"), might develop.

However, as long as the patient is healthy and does not show any of these symptoms, there is no need to refer to any doctor or investigate them.

Ayurvedic Remedies for Heart Problems

Following two years of this pandemic, we are seeing how COVID-19 has affected the hearts of those who have suffered from it.

Thus, it is important to follow a regime post-COVID, that can help strengthen the heart.  There are many herbal remedies and ayurvedic products online available to alleviate heart problems, prevent blockages, and reduce LDL cholesterol levels. Let's look at some of them. 

1. Himalaya Lasuna Tab. (Garlic)

For a healthy heart, start your day by boiling up a cup of milk with a garlic clove, cinnamon, and honey, then drinking it in the morning.

Arjuna is a wonder herb that helps to manage cardiovascular health. Arjuna bark powder prevents heart diseases and ensures proper functioning by strengthening the heart muscles.

Drinking this decoction once a day regularly will help to maintain a healthy heart.

Apart from the medications, the patients have to follow a strict regimen according to the Ayush system of medicine.
