Imagine if your morning cup of coffee smelled like rotting garbage one day. Or, if your favorite comfort food had no flavor at all. For some COVID lung transporters, this is their new reality. What causes these disturbances in smell and taste in the first place? And what treatment options are there for these patients? In this episode we speak with Dr. Zara Patel, an odor expert at Stanford University, who says olfactory training — or “scent training” — can help some people regain their lost sense of smell and taste. In addition, tall COVID patients share their stories and the resources that have helped them cope with their diagnosis.
