Although we are in a better place now compared to the past two years, COVID is still causing harm to many. Most patients recover from COVID-19 after six weeks, but for some, symptoms tend to linger and cause health complications. If not addressed, you may develop more severe conditions as a result.
Fortunately, natural remedies are available to combat the adverse effects of Post-COVID, but it’s vital to seek treatment sooner rather than later.
Which supplements are most effective for post-COVID symptoms? Let’s first discuss what Post-COVID or Long Haulers is exactly and why it continues to wreak havoc on your immune system.
Are you experiencing fatigue, breathing difficulties, brain fog, or heart palpitations long after having COVID-19? Unfortunately, these are symptoms of Long Haul COVID. We are finding that patients who take longer than six weeks to recover from COVID develop symptoms of Chronic Fatigue (CFS) and Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS).
What is causing these symptoms? We know that some patients develop the post-viral syndrome, or CMS, caused by pro-inflammatory cytokines entering the hypothalamus (responsible for hormone release) by crossing the blood-brain barrier. When this happens, your immune system reacts by releasing too many cytokines to stop the virus, creating a cytokine storm. As a result, you experience lung inflammation and additional post-COVID symptoms.
COVID attacks your nervous system and immune system by using your mitochondria for viral replication. As a result, you experience decreased mitochondrial functioning and less cellular energy, so you experience fatigue, muscle weakness, and brain fog.
In addition, the COVID virus causes lymphatic system disturbances and may cause blood clots in the lungs, causing fatigue.
Targeted supplementation for long-haul COVID-19 is crucial. Even more critical is working with an experienced post-COVID provider who will provide you with the appropriate supplements to target your microbiome, mitochondria, immune system, and nervous system.
Unfortunately, most medications prescribed for post-COVID symptoms will only hinder your immune system and prevent your body from naturally healing itself. Targeted supplementation will jumpstart your innate healing mechanisms so your body systems and organs can begin working together again, ultimately correcting the issues. The right supplements will bring balance back to your health and eliminate long-haul complications such as Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia.
Not all supplements are created equal, which is why it is imperative not to go on this journey alone. Working with a long-haul COVID provider will help create a tailored supplement plan specific to your needs. The following supplements have been shown to drastically reduce symptoms of Post-COVID.
Curaphen, Clinical Glutathione, and Omega-3 - Reduces inflammation and free radical reactions while bringing balance back to the immune system.
SHINE Protocol - Addresses Sleep, Hormones, Infection control, Nutrition, and Exercise. Post-COVID symptoms disrupt the mitochondria and hypothalamus, so it is vital to restore energy production.
Oral European serum bi- and tri-peptide formula - Studies show that this potent combo is extremely effective in improving energy and function in post-COVID patients.
HRG80™ red ginseng - Ginseng is a super herb that has been used medicinally for centuries. HRG80 red ginseng has been shown to improve energy levels, mental clarity, sleep, pain, and overall well-being in post-COVID patients.
Post-COVID is causing complications such as breathing, heart palpitations, and brain fog. These symptoms can be scary and often overwhelming for patients who are unsure how to restore their health. We recommend the following supplements to target these specific areas of concern- the heart, lungs, and brain. We also want to stress the importance of working with a post-COVID provider to help provide specific dosages for your individual needs.
If you are feeling lost and frustrated dealing with post-COVID complications and are unsure where to start. We are here to tell you there is hope and relief for your symptoms. Properly targeted supplementation is key to restoring your health so you can get back to an active symptom-free life just as you were before having COVID.
