Loss Of Smell

Did you know that about eighty-six percent of people infected with COVID-19 experience loss of smell? In addition to symptoms like shortness of breath, cold, and cough, a lot of people also experience other symptoms like loss of taste and smell. Loss of taste and smell are largely linked together. Loss of smell largely impacts your sense of taste. These symptoms usually occur before the other COVID symptoms.

Studies show that most people got back their sense of smell after three weeks. But they have also seen other people never recover their sense of taste or smell even after sixty days. Experts have formulated, with their experience that the best way to regain your sense of smell back is through smell training.

If you have lost your sense of smell for two weeks or more, the best way to regain it and recover is through smell training or olfactory training. It’s easy, it’s safe and it is recommended by doctors and anyone can do it! Your smell kit will contain four different fragrances. Smell training is sniffing these four fragrances for twenty seconds each every day. You need to concentrate on what you are doing. Your fragrance kit could consist of coffee beans, cinnamon, lemon, orange rind, nutmeg, clove, mint, or eucalyptus. If symptoms continue to persist, do consult your doctor.
