UNDERSTANDING & HEALING LONG COVID

with Duane Law, L.Ac.

The most frightening thing about Long COVID is how little medical science knows about it.

Fortunately this is beginning to change. Even while there’s still no lab test that can document it and diagnosis is clinical, a range of investigators and researchers have identified several different metabolic dynamics underpinning the syndrome. This is allowing cutting-edge clinicians to begin to treat it successfully.

But for those who aren’t aware of this work and wondering what to do about their fatigue, inability to concentrate, insomnia, extreme anxiety and fatigue … and why their regular docs can’t help them … the situation can be terrifying indeed.

We’ll review the latest research into the metabolic dynamics underpinning Long COVID 1,2,3 and examine the functional medicine nutrient-based interventions that appear to be working.4,5,6,7

Steering patients toward reputable sources of online information about Long COVID saves you precious time and helps them gain a sense of greater agency over the situation … invaluable for addressing the anxiety and depression so common in Long COVID patients.

Long COVID appears to be a pleiomorphic syndrome … it appears to have different causes in different people and presents with an incredibly broad range of idiosyncratic symptoms. Chronic, persistent, low-grade infections, autoimmune dynamics, viral debris clogging arteries and kidneys … all these and more combine to make Long COVID an extraordinary clinical challenge.

Yet because we’re already trained to think in terms of interacting systems we’re better prepared than conventional docs to treat it effectively. Adding a functional nutrition lens and toolkit to your clinical skills positions you to help patients that make MDs throw up their hands.

This course focuses on:

  • current understandings of Long COVID: four overlapping pathological issues
  • functional nutrition approaches to addressing all four issues
  • resources for professional and patient education
  • patient centered-care vs treating disease

Goals & Objectives:

Students who complete this course successfully will:

  • Be able to name and accurately describe four metabolic pathways creating Long COVID symptoms,
  • Be able to accurate describe functional nutrition approaches addressing each one,
  • Name three publicly available resources to which they can refer patients for education purposes and offer a critique of at least one of them.
