This was actually a conversation recorded in March of 2021, but so much of the science is still relevant, so I wanted to get it formally turned into a Gut Check podcast episode. There are visuals and screen shots shared on my website. Links below.
Thoughts on Covid root cause, and Long Hauler research and theories.
In this episode, Andee and I discuss:
A general disclaimer that has to come with ALL covid talks… no one can guarantee a cure right now, technically due to the newness of Covid-10, and legally due to semantics rules. That word, cure, or treat, are only legally allowed to be used by physicians, regardless of if other medical professionals can address a disease.
Do be careful of empty promises, and obviously there’s TONS of controversy out there about this; but also be aware that there may be genuine help out there using different terminology because our hands (and mouths) are sometimes tied.
