Long-haulers Protocol

Do you have persistent symptoms such as shortness of breath, fatigue, headaches, palpitations, and impairments in mental health and cognition, that never dissipated after Covid-19?


Long-haulers is a relatively new term to describe lingering post-viral symptoms 28 days beyond the acute illness or time that you were sick.  Hello EBV, anyone? Post-viral syndromes are more common than we think, and Epstein Barr virus was one of the first viruses to show us that. No matter what you believe Covid is, it has left devastating symptoms for many people. Many of these symptoms resemble conditions that some doctors consider “psychosomatic” or poorly steeped in the literature. Covid has forced many in the field to consider a different perspective in healthcare. How do we treat palpitations, POTS, chronic fatigue syndrome, and mast cell activation syndrome adequately? Root cause medicine to the rescue. Let us teach you the tricks to healing.
