As the post-pandemic world reopens and many places discard masks and social distancing, not everyone is returning to life as usual.
Strange symptoms like brain fog, dizziness, shortness of breath, persistent fatigue, or digestive issues are troubling a growing number of people.
Jampha is privileged to be working with a team of top Tibetan Medical Experts with over 300 years in combined experience in Tibetan Formulation and use of Plant and Mineral Medicines.
This article outlines what long COVID is and how Jampha's team designed Tibetan Botanical Tinctured Infusions to address the evolving symptomology of the COVID virus, it's variants and the debilitating effects of COVID vaccines.
One in five people who were infected with COVID-19 suffer long-term varying symptoms of what doctors are calling long COVID or post-COVID. This is true whether they had a severe or mild case or whether they were vaccinated or unvaccinated.
In this blog we will explore:

What Are Some of the Symptoms of Long COVID-19?
Vaccines Don’t Prevent Long COVID
Long COVID is a Systemic or Whole Body Problem
Your Body Can Rebalance With the Right Help
Jampha’s SETI Infusions Help Nourish and Detox
Long COVID-19 describes a range of persistent and troublesome symptoms experienced by some people after they were infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. These are symptoms that they did not experience before contracting COVID. Doctors and researchers call these long-term effects post-COVID conditions (PCC), long COVID, or long-haul COVID.
Long COVID affects about one in five adults who contract the virus. This number applies whether someone contracted COVID after being vaccinated or had no vaccine. While some assume that only individuals with a severe SARS-CoV-2 infection might experience lasting post-COVID symptoms, research shows that even vaccinated people with a mild case can have long-haul COVID.
COVID-19 has a “variable infection gradient.” Generally, it first infects the nasal cavity by replicating specific cell types. From there, it can infect and replicate – though progressively less well – in cells lower down the respiratory tract, where it may cause more serious diseases. For this reason, different people’s symptoms of post-COVD or long-haul COVID can be very different. The CDC includes all of the following in its list of long-COVID symptoms:
However, this list doesn’t include everything doctors see as part of long COVID. Some patients are experiencing strange symptoms that are hard to manage and cannot be explained by tests. Sometimes these symptoms may be similar to chronic fatigue or autoimmune conditions. As doctors struggle to identify and remediate long COVID symptoms, sufferers are losing patience. Researchers are starting to expand their investigations but have made little headway into the complex condition.
Daniel Griffin is an infectious disease specialist at Columbia University who has been bringing attention to the lack of adequate treatments and understanding of post-COVID. He advocates for expanding clinical trials to include any treatment that many patients.
Recent studies by Harvard Medical School and Stanford University found evidence that pockets of the virus may continue to live in parts of the body long after the COVD infection. This finding can explain the symptoms for some cases of long COVID since the spike protein doesn’t live long enough to cause ongoing symptoms. A reservoir of the virus may settle in the body.
There are other viruses’ that continue to live in pockets of the body post-infection. These findings increase researcher's interest in antivirals.
If you or someone you love are dealing with strange symptoms that seemed to have developed about four weeks after COVID, your body may be crying out for help to detox and rebalance after the infection.
Vaccinated people with post-COVID symptoms may not associate their ongoing health problems with the coronavirus because they heard the vaccines protect them from long-haul COVID. However, research shows that vaccinated people only have about a 15% less chance of experiencing long-COVID symptoms.
Long COVID seems to be most common in people with severe infections. However, even people with mild COVID cases or no symptoms during infection can struggle with ongoing symptoms for weeks or months after exposure. There also doesn’t seem to be a clear correlation between common risk factors like obesity and diabetes and long-COVID.
Even if you are vaccinated and were infected with COVID without apparent symptoms, you can have post-COVID health issues.
Long COVID is a systemic problem. The SARS-CoV-2 virus, with its spike proteins, can enter cells in different organs and systems of the body. This is why many people are experiencing mysterious and hard-to-treat symptoms.
If you cut your finger, that is a very localized problem with a localized solution. It is sufficient to clean and disinfect the cut and allow it to heal. However, if a virus has damaged or created a toxic environment in several organ systems, there is no localized solution that can help.
Under many circumstances and with the right support, your organs and internal systems can heal and restore themselves to a healthy, functional balance. For many people with long COVID, the body may eventually recover on its own. However, if you could get something that would help restore balance faster, would you want it?
When your body is struggling with stress, the effects of a virus, or other imbalances, there are two types of support you can offer: Detoxification and Nourishment.
Detoxification is a critical body process. Every minute of every day, your body is removing the toxic byproducts of normal cellular metabolism as well as any environmental or dietary toxins that may have found their way inside. It is such an essential process that we have five organs dedicated to detox (liver, colon, kidneys, lungs, and the skin).
Nutrients, like those found in many plants, are essential to life. They give our bodies what they need to function as designed. Many of today’s processed food options lack crucial nutrients, and when our bodies are compromised after illness or through prolonged stress, they can require boosts of nutrients to help restore healthy levels.
Jampha’s founder first discovered organic CBD after a life-changing injury and had him on 16 different pharmaceuticals, including for pain relief and to reduce inflammation. Using organic CBD infused with potent plant molecules called terpenes, he and his doctor were able to wean him off of all of the pharmaceuticals.
Jampha is the Tibetan word for loving kindness, and it was in this spirit that he launched the company. He wanted to share these remarkable remedies with others. In the process, he met an experienced Amchi of Tibetan medicine and his team of practitioners of the Tibetan Sowa Rigpa tradition, who brought another level of plant medicine into Jampha’s products.
The SETI Infusions come from the Tibetan Sowa Rigpa tradition of Tibetan Medicine, which is based on holistic principles and derived from more than 2500 years of applied and practiced insight. Tibetan medicine embodies a lineage of understanding of how to use nature's mineral and herbal gifts to enhance our lives.
These potent remedies have become available to a global audience at a critical time in history. Here are a few of the Tibetan Medicine SETI Infusions that have helped clients recover from symptoms of long-COVID.
Turquoise Dragon combines detoxifying herbs, potent terpenes, and balancing cannabinoids to clean impurities from the blood. It is designed to help remove toxins, bacteria, parasites, and viruses naturally and powerfully.
Every cell in your body needs oxygen to live. Your lungs deliver fresh oxygen to your bloodstream while removing the waste gas carbon dioxide. COVID-19 often attacks and compromises the lungs.
The Golden Eagle formula is designed to soothe lung tissues, support the function of respiratory tract muscles, and clear excess mucus from the lungs without drying them out. This carefully selected combination of herbs, plant terpenes, and cannabinoids supports the respiratory, lymphatic, digestive, eliminatory, circulatory, cardiovascular, cerebral, and immune systems.
Up to half of thelong COVID symptoms are neuropsychiatric, relating to depression, sleep disorders, anxiety, PTSD, fatigue, and cognitive deficits. Remarkably, brain health is related to heart health because healthy blood that circulates well will deliver oxygen and nutrients to your brain cells and help remove toxins as they are created.
The White Elephant formula supports cognition, learning, memory, and creativity by functioning as a neuro-protective and neuro-regenerative. It supports the brain, the nervous system, and your bloodstream.
Researchers have linked long COVID symptoms to inflammation. Prolonged inflammation causes pain and can damage healthy cells and organs, and evenlead to chronic illnesses like cancer or diabetes.
TheWhite Tiger formula is designed to reduce pain and inflammation throughout the body and powerfully supports the nervous system. The herbs, plant terpenes, and cannabinoids in this unique formulation work to clear obstructions, increasing the distribution of vital chi throughout all neural networks and systems of the body.
These powerful formulas from Jampha’s original product line combine organic CBD with carefully selected combinations of plant terpenes. CBD and plant terpenes are remarkable plant molecules that work with your endocannabinoid system to help rebalance and restore optimal function.
