There are many practical remedies to work with the post-Covid body to boost the immune system, heal ongoing health issues, and ready the body and mind for an increased healthspan. Your physician should always be your first visit on your way to better health. The cells are our first line of defense when fighting any disease in the body. Because Covid 19 can create long term effects, it’s important to work with the Intelligent Body and other healing modalities to encourage a full recovery back to optimal health!

What’s the Most Important Food? 

Have you ever wondered what the most crucial “food” for our bodies might be? Water and veggies might be your first thought, but it’s actually AIR! Air is the first essential nutrient our bodies need. But our bodies can’t use air directly. It’s the mitochondria in our cells that transform oxygen into usable energy. Post-COVID, the nutrients in the mitochondria can become depleted, with studies highlighting a specific deficiency in a compound known as NAD. This powerhouse molecule is crucial for a range of bodily functions, from energy production in mitochondria to DNA repair and cell division.

How Covid Affects Your Cells

Because mitochondria in your cells get depleted when fighting off the Covid 19,  the body is unable to use oxygen properly to make enough energy. The long-term effects on the body can cause a myriad of symptoms such as headaches, aches, and fatigue, and lead to more serious illnesses. Without the ability to turn oxygen to energy, the body is at a severe disadvantage. 

  • NAD helps replenish the mitochondria, the DNA, and it’s an antioxidant. The most common method of treatment is IV therapy. But there are also patches, nose sprays, and injections for at-home use.
  • Dr. David Sinclair, a scientific researcher at Harvard, suggests using NMN powder as it turns into NAD and is an alternative to other forms of NAD treatments.

Post-Covid Effects on Your Gut

Your immune system mostly lies in your intestines and the gut microbiome. Some people are experiencing long-term symptoms such as leaky gut or other digestive issues after having Covid. To start to repair your gut, Dr. Ankit recommends the following.

  • Avoid foods that damage the gut: gluten, dairy, sugar, most junk foods
  • Replace with healthy foods like fruits and vegetables
  • Take Digestive Enzymes, 4 with each meal
  • Take healing supplements
    • A good probiotic
    • Celery juice
    • Ion Gut Support
    • Glutamine (also found in cabbage)
  • Colonics

Epstein Barr Virus (EBV)

The Epstein Barr virus is a chronic problem for people even before the Covid-19 Pandemic. The Covid virus has created problems for people who have Epstein Barr, which often presents itself as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Just as the name implies, it is a name used to describe undiagnosable extreme fatigue. Studies are saying that when people are in Post Covid and not recovering, it is often EBV, an underlying bacterial infection, or an issue that has been triggered by Covid weakening the immune system. In this case, Silver can be useful in treating EBV.

Covid and the Nervous System

For some, Covid-19 illness seems to trigger inflammation in the amygdala. The amygdala is responsible for releasing stress hormones that put the body into fight or flight. Anxiety is essentially the body being in a constant state of survival. Some develop anxiety if they do not already have it and others have heightened anxiety reactions. Nerve cells use oxygen more than any other cell, and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been helpful for some. Dr. Ankit identifies the two additional therapies to calm the nervous system.

Maximize Your Healthspan and Lifespan

We all aspire to live in vibrant health and to have a healthspan that is as long as our lifespan. Paying careful attention to lingering symptoms after having a Covid-19 infection is essential in guiding the body toward optimal functioning and maximum vitality.
