Healing after CO-VID-19 is a complex and multifaceted journey that encompasses physical, mental, and emotional aspects. It’s essential to recognize that recovery is not a linear process and can vary from person to person. Seek professional help, adopt a healthy lifestyle, and connect with support networks for a better post-pandemic future.

The CO-VID-19 pandemic has left an indelible mark on the world, affecting millions of lives in countless ways. Beyond prevention, treatment, and vaccination, it’s equally important to discuss the process of healing after CO-VID-19. As survivors continue to struggle with the physical, emotional, and psychological aftermath of CO-VID-19, understanding the path to recovery is crucial.

Join me and Leo Galland, MD, a board-certified internist, and creator of the Coronavirus Guidebook as we talk about healing after Co-Vid. We delve into the long-term effects of CO-VID-19 on the body, especially its adverse effects on ACE2, a critical factor in healing and maintaining overall vascular health. Leo explains how the circulatory system is impacted negatively, which in turn puts incredible stress on the brain, nerves, and other systems.  Additionally, he shares the step-by-step approach he is using to enable people to fully recover from CO-VID.

Long-term inflammation after CO-VID is common, leading to varying levels of persistent illness.

Both long CO-VID and post-infection inflammation are treatable.

The virus damages ACE2.

ACE2 helps maintain blood vessels, so circulation can be inhibited, leading to brain fog, shortness of breath etc.

The body takes in oxygen but cannot deliver it well via damaged blood vessels.

Healing the gut microbiome helps enormously, it enables the huge number of ACE2 receptors that live there to reactivate.

Which treatments work depends on the disease path.

The virus and fragments hang out mainly in the GI tract, causing inflammation and preventing absorption of amino acids, which impacts the brain, the nervous system and other body systems.

Fermented food strengthens T effector lymphocytes.


‘It actually takes several months for basically healthy young people to recover from all of the physiologic abnormalities created by this virus (CoVid).’

‘The gut has a major influence on long CO-VID.’

‘The full impact of CO-VID on our species – I think it’s going to be a long time before we know what that is.’
