Ways to regain taste and smell after having COVID-19

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


    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.

  • Ways to regain senses of smell and taste after COVID-19


    ST. LOUIS - Some people who had COVID-19 are looking for ways to regain their senses of smell and taste.

    Doctors are working with patients on a variety of treatments from therapy to medication.

    Jim Dean from St. Louis County tested positive for COVID-19 in November

    I was considered severe, Dean said. It lasted for about 30 days total.

    Months later, Dean says peanut butter and pasta sauce taste foul. He describes certain foods as metallic and others as sewage-like.

    Dean told 5 On Your Side he thought he was going crazy.

    It's a feeling Dr. Jay Piccirillo a Professor of Otolaryngology at Washington University School of Medicine says is typical.

    It's very disorienting for the patients and we've had people say 'you know doc, when I had no sense of smell that was better than what I have now, the parosmia can be very disturbing, Dr. Piccirillo said.

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


    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?


    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!

  • COVID-19: Loss of Taste! ????


    A significant portion of people who test positive for COVID-19 experience a sudden loss of smell or taste. People usually notice the loss of smell, but because smell is necessary to taste flavour, the symptoms are often connected.

    The reason this happens is not fully understood yet; scientists believe that the virus causes an inflammatory reaction inside the nose, leading to a loss of the olfactory – or smell – neurons. The loss of taste is trickier; we have little idea about how the coronavirus affects taste.

    Many people still haven’t gotten their senses back! If you needed another reason to keep being careful, here it is. Let’s keep doing our part to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. Stay home, continue to enjoy your senses. ????????????

  • Sensory impairment: How the coronavirus is getting on our nerves | COVID-19 Special


    Many people who catch Covid-19 report a loss of taste and smell. For some it's one of a range of symptoms. For others, it's the only one. Scientists studying the phenomenon believe the sensory impairment could be caused by the virus attacking nerve cells in the nose. This leads to questions about the disease's effect on the brain.

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


    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.
    Eucalyptus and
    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.
