  • How smell training is helping COVID-19 patients recover their olfactory sense

    6:06

    Loss of smell is a common symptom of COVID-19. Though a majority of patients recover their olfactory sense within weeks, some researchers estimate that 10% suffer long-term smell dysfunction. Los Angeles Times reporter Brittny Mejia looked into why this occurs and what people can do to regain their sense of smell.

  • Smell Training to Recover From Smell Loss

    3:14

    - Olfactory or smell training may help restore a lost sense of smell particularly after a viral upper respiratory infection or head trauma where no physical nasal obstruction is present. Olfactory training is analogous to physical therapy used to help restore limb movement after a stroke or ear training for singers and musicians. Much of the basis found over the benefit of olfactory training or smell therapy stems from German research published in 2009 and later supported by a 2020 meta-analysis.

    What they found was that about 30% of patients who had undergone the smell training experienced some improvement in olfactory function compared to the group who had not participated. Click here for more info and references:

    The nice thing with olfactory training is that you can easily do this at home.

    You will need to purchase four different essential oils (links to Amazon):
    - lemon:
    - rose:
    - clove:
    - eucalyptus:

    You will also need four small amber colored empty glass jars with lids to store and utilize during treatment sessions.

  • Smell therapy: Helping recovered COVID-19 patients regain their sense of smell

    3:02

    One of the most common symptoms of COVID-19 is a distorted sense of smell and taste. For some patients, the problem persists long after they recover, bringing increased urgency to research aimed at understanding and treating the disorder. Scientists are still trying to pinpoint exactly why it happens in the first place.

  • How to Get Your Smell Back After Covid with Smell Training

    8:26

    Lost your smell after Covid? Here's how you can use olfactory training or smell training to restore your sense of smell. Most cases of anosmia (lack of smell) return after 2-3 weeks after a viral infection like Covid19. Most people regain their sense of smell and taste within 7 days, but don't lose hope if you've been waiting for 2-3 weeks or more and still can't smell. Smell therapy (like physical therapy for your sense of smell!) has shown to be an effective way to restore your sense of smell, even with long term cases of anosmia.

    Based on the most commonly cited study by Dr. Thomas Hummel, olfactory training uses four unique scents designed to cover different fragrance categories using:

    Lemon for fruity smells:
    Rose for a flower fragrances:
    Cloves for spicy or bitter smells:
    And Eucalyptus for ethereal odors or resinous smells similar to fresh cleaning solutions:

    How to Perform Smell Training:
    Step 1: Find at least 4 familiar fragrances such as Lemon, Rose, Cloves, and Eucalyptus (see above). Place 5-6 drops of oil on a piece of absorbent paper like watercolor paper and place into an amber glass jar:

    Step 2: Twice a day, smell each container for about 10 to 15 seconds, taking just take a couple small sniffs of the fragrance. Try to keep the smell at the top of your nasal cavity instead of taking a giant whiff of the jar.

    Step 3: Track Your Progress
    Keep track of your progress each day by rating how strong you find each smell with each attempt.

  • Why Are People Losing Smell After Recovering From COVID-19?

    12:47

    70% of people report decreased or loss of smell and/or taste after being infected with COVID-19 and about 10% of them have persistent loss of smell for months after recovering from infection. We are going to talk about what may be causing these changes in smell and taste (neuroinvasion? epithelial damage?), how long they may last, and what may be used to treat the symptoms.

    We are going to use a case study to assist in this discussion on a 65 year old woman with persistent loss of smell and taste for 3 months after she recovered from COVID-19. She had a negative PCR swab, but was positive for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies. They did an extensive workup and found that her symptoms seemed to stem from epithelial damage around the olfactory nerves (nerves that sense smell). This is important as one of the theories of this loss of smell was neuroinvasion, or direct viral invasion of the nerves that can travel to the brain. This doesn't seem to be the case, rather it seems that the epithelial cells around these nerves are being destroyed from invasion of the virus and then that is causing the nerves to be damaged. We will discuss how this works and what this means. We will then go into what treatments have been tried, have been effective, and still need to be studied further. Check out the video for all of these details and more!

  • Long-haul COVID-19 and Smell Loss - Explanation & Next Steps

    12:28

    In this episode of EUFOREA News, host Dr David Bull as he explores the extraordinary symptom that many people have been suffering from after they've been struck down by COVID-19.

    Dr Bull is joined by Professor Basile Landis, Associate Physician, Head of Rhinology and Olfactory Unit at @Université de Genève (UNIGE) and a world expert on smell functionality.

    Coronavirus has infected nearly a quarter of a million people worldwide and has killed nearly 5 million people around the world.

    However, those who have survived have been plagued with ongoing symptoms (sometimes referred to as long haul Covid). One of the most striking clinical features of Covid infection is loss of smell, which affects nearly 60% of patients during infection and which may persist after recovery from covid.

    Olfactory dysfunction is a common side effect of many post-viral illnesses but there is a huge body of evidence that indicate that taste and smell loss are common symptoms of COVID-19 that may persist long after the initial infection. This effect has a profound impact on quality of life.

    Learn more about this phenomenon and the next steps you can take if you or someone you know is suffering from COVID-19 smell loss in this episode.

  • Explained : Parosmia, an odor distortion associated with COVID-19

    2:14

    While loss of smell (anosmia) and taste is a well known symptom of COVID-19, some people may experience parosmia, which is characterised by a change in perception of odours.

  • Can you regain your smell after COVID-19 infection?

    7:20

    In this video, Dr. Van Dyken discusses olfactory training - a technique that has shown impressive results in retraining neurons and thereby regaining the sense of smell. She reviews an effective, validated method using common essential oils.
    _______________________________
    We talk a lot about the symptoms of COVID-19. Things like shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, cough, fevers and chills, muscle aches, etc. You may have heard about loss of smell, also known as olfactory dysfunction, in relation to COVID-19. This symptom is surprisingly common - so common if fact that the CDC has added it to the official list of diagnostic criteria for covid-19, and losing your smell ALONE is enough reason to self-isolate and get a covid test.

    Losing the sense of smell after an infection is not unique to SARS-CoV-2. It has been reported in other viral infections (like from parainfluenza, rhinovirus, and SARS-1), but the incidence is much lower than SARS-CoV-2 infection. You may think that losing your sense of smell is no big deal, but --it actually is a pretty big problem that drastically decreases quality of life. The sense of smell and the sense of taste are very closely linked, such that most people that lose their sense of smell also lose their sense of taste.

    Individuals who have olfactory dysfunction encounter many problems - here are some examples:
    problems with cooking.
    decreased appetite.
    Decreased personal hygiene.
    Not being able to detect a dangerous environment or situation, like toxic gas, combustion, smoke, and chemicals.

    The good news is that in many cases, the olfactory dysfunction resolves. We don’t have long term data for SARS-CoV-2 yet. At present, given the data we have, the short term smell and taste recovery rate is approximately 44-74%. That’s a big range.

    So what about people who have lost their sense of smell, and desperately want it back? Is there any hope? Are there any techniques that science has shown to be useful in this regard?

    The most successful method, by far, is something called olfactory training. It was developed in Europe. The exact way it works is still unknown, but it is hypothesized that doing this might cause the neurons responsible for smelling to regenerate (or grow back). That’s incredible!

    So how does it work? Basically, you expose your nose to four different and specific odors - in a particular way with a particular mindset - twice daily, for a minimum of 12 weeks. The longer you do it, the higher the chances of your smell returning. Originally, in order to participate in olfactory training, you had to go to a specialized center and smell four super specialized and expensive smells. Luckily, in 2017 an Ear, nose and throat surgeon named Zara Patel from Stanford University described and validated a method of doing this with essential oils. She conducted a randomized, clinical trial demonstrating that the essential oil method is comparable to traditional method using standardized concentrations of odorants and the Sniffin’ Sticks testing method. It works! Its also useful to know that this strategy helps improve loss of smell due to other causes - like age, chronic nasal obstruction, Parkinsons disease, and other unknown causes.

    So lets describe the protocol.
    You will need four specific essential oils.
    Rose
    Lemon
    Eucalyptus and
    Clove
    Brand type and price don’t matter.

    Open one essential oil container, hold it under your nose, and breathe slowly and deeply for 15 seconds. While you are breathing, focus on what you remember the specific odor to smell like before you lost your sense of smell. Concentrate deeply on that.
    After your 15 seconds are up, take a 15 second break and then rotate to the next scent. Repeat this procedure until you have gone through all four scents.

    Do this training protocol twice a day, every day, for six months. The longer you do the training, the more likely it is to be successful - so don’t give up! Those little neurons grow very slowly, so they need time to be restored.

  • Ways to regain taste and smell after having COVID-19

    2:02

    Dr. Al Knable is a doctor in New Albany and recently received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. As someone who also recovered from the virus, he has become a great resource to answer some of the top questions surrounding COVID-19 and the vaccine.

    Dr. Knable has been an interesting case - he is one of the unlucky few who has experienced a long-term loss of taste and smell, even after the rest of his symptoms subsided.

    My taste and smell went out, and was completely gone for roughly two, two and half, three weeks, he said. Then there were basically some interludes where it came back for a little bit with some distortion and whatnot.

    It's too early to tell if these side effects are directly related to the virus itself, but he said that there are ways you can retrain your senses.

    As strange as it sounds, he said you can refamiliarize yourself with certain smells - both good and bad. Dr. Knable said he goes to his spice cabinet or refrigerator and just smells things.

    You want to kind of sit there and ruminate on those smells or go kind of in your head putting a name to that smell, he said.

    He said this kind of process has proven effective with similar cases, so he encourages anyone who is suffering from these symptoms to give it a try.

    As easy as that sounds, it's proven effective. And I think it's helped me...a bit with it, he said.

    Dr. Knable said he also has heard some anecdotal evidence from people who saw improvements in their taste and smell a week or two after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. While there isn't enough data to say the vaccine fully restores these senses, he said these cases are positive signs.

  • Smell Training with Chris Kelly

    10:35

    In August 2016, Chris Kelly visited the Monell Center to speak with scientists and physicians about smell training, and conduct a workshop for recovering anosmics.

    Chris lost her sense of smell in 2012, and credits smell training with helping to restore some of her olfactory world.

    In this video, Chris presents a summary of the smell training workshop.

    Chris's smell training technique is suitable for acquired anosmics, either viral or TBI, who have regained the ability to perceive some low level of odor. It will be most useful if you are able to say “this smell” is different from “that smell,” even if you can’t identify either odor.

  • Smell Training and Covid 19

    1:27

    AbScent Zoom event from May 26, 2020.

    Guests: AbScent trustee and ENT Simon Gane of the Royal National Throat, Nose, and Ear Hospital; Professor Barry Smith of the Centre for the Senses, London. Aidan Kirkwood was moderator.

    COVID- 19 has meant many new members to the AbScent community who are reporting loss of smell and taste. In tonight's Zoom, I speak with Simon and Barry about how we can help those who have lost these two senses to the coronavirus.

    Smell training is a well researched intervention that can support those with post viral smell loss, and in some cases also benefits those with TBI
    anosmia. We discuss the research, the method, and what might be going on in the brain when we smell train.

    The participants in this broadcast all participate in the Global Consortium for Chemosensory Research (GCCR), a collaboration of scientists from around the world who formed in urgent response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Central to this initiative is an important survey on respiratory illness (such as flu or suspected COVID-19). If you have had such an illness in the last two weeks, please respond to this survey, which is available in over 30 languages:

    Together with the GCCR, UK scientists have launched another survey about smell and taste change. This survey is not time specific, so if you lost your sense of smell and taste since the beginning of the year, please consider letting us know about your symptoms, how they started, and the order in which they came. To find the survey, click here:

    Our next event will be on June 9th, when I will be in conversation with Claire Hopkins, leading ENT and President of the British Rhinological Society.
