Recovery from Upper Respiratory Infection like COVID or the Flu

By January 13, 2022December 30th, 2022Blog

Recovery from upper respiratory infections like COVID or the flu can be a long process. One of the most important gifts that Wellspring Vitality is bringing to this community are powerful wellness technologies that help the body overcome upper respiratory infections. Liz has coined the term, “Covid Crud” to describe those who struggle with lingering upper respiratory issues, chronic fatigue, reduced immune response, etc. that often plague those that are COVID positive.

What is the protocol for recovery for our clients? We begin treatments once the client is deemed no longer contagious according to the CDC’s recommendations. Once they are ready to begin, we recommend the Complete Body Reset protocol. Our recovery protocol works on a cellular level to get the blood flowing and increase oxygenation in the body using oxygen therapy, infrared sauna, salt therapy, and circulation restoration therapy. 

Complete Body Reset for Upper Respiratory Infection Recovery

One therapy in the Complete Body Reset is LiveO2 oxygen therapy and training. The LiveO2 delivers high levels of oxygen while the client engages in gentle stretching or cycles on a stationary bike. If you are too weak to engage in exercise, don’t worry, we have you covered!  We have prescribed breathing exercises that highly oxygenate the blood while you are working on exercising your lungs and core. Combining movement with increased oxygen flow increases circulation and the quantity of oxygen in the blood. 

LiveO2 is combined with an infrared sauna session. Blood microscopy shows the powerful effects of the O2 treatments before and after and the infrared sauna. The sauna triggers a detox sweat and also provides a powerful 1-2-3 punch by killing viruses, bacterias, and molds present in the body. 

The salt therapy room is a powerful way to introduce detoxification into the lungs and upper respiratory system while balancing out and deeply relaxing the central nervous system. Clients sit or stretch in a calming room and breathe in micro-particles of salt. The salt loosens congestion and has natural antimicrobial properties making it an excellent therapy for recovery from a respiratory infection.  Many clients experience a loosening effect and are able to reduce mucous and inflammation stress in the body.

This program adds Circulation Restoration Therapy or BEMER to the beginning of the session. This therapy sends PEMF, Pulsed Electromagnetic Field,  through the body which increases blood circulation. This increased circulation improves and facilitates muscle performance. Starting off with increased blood flow only increases the positive results of the rest of the therapies in the Complete Body Rest program.

We’ve used this for asthma-related issues, sinus issues and as a powerful way to help with travelers or newcomers to the area who are struggling with altitude acclimation.
