Long Covid

Conveniently located to serve the areas of New York, NY

If you are one of the 10 to 25% of people who experience lingering health complications after having COVID-19, the good news is we offer the most advanced post-COVID treatment options to bring you back to optimal health.

It’s essential to address your symptoms with a holistic functional medicine doctor if you are still experiencing health complications after COVID-19.

Because research is still ongoing, many doctors are unfamiliar with how to treat long-haul COVID-19 symptoms, making it challenging to find the right provider with adequate knowledge and experience. At the Kellman Wellness Center, we are highly versed in the latest diagnostics and treatment options for long-term COVID-19. Lasting COVID-19 symptoms could lead to further complications down the road if not treated.

Condition

Even if you experience mild COVID-19 symptoms, you are still at risk for long-haul COVID-19 or Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 (PASC). Post-COVID condition is defined as returning or lingering COVID symptoms or a wide range of new health problems occurring more than four weeks after your initial infection of COVID-19.

Treatment

Don’t wait to see an experienced long-haul COVID physician, even if your lingering symptoms are mild. Post-COVID can negatively affect your microbiome and gut health which may further lead to autoimmune disease.

At the Kellman Wellness Center, we treat long-term COVID-19 with the most progressive treatment therapies to restore balance and recover your health. We treat every patient with a personalized approach ensuring treatments are tailored to your specific body and health conditions.

Your treatment for long COVID-19 symptoms may include the following:

Some of our treatment methods include:

  • Target cytokines to reduce the inflammatory response and boost the immune system.
  • Reduce inflammation and modulate hyperimmune response with new peptide Thymulin – a version of Thymosin and most essential exosomes.
  • Address any low thyroid disorders with TRH testing. We often find low thyroid in long-haul patients.
  • Fix the microbiome to restore good bacteria through targeted natural compounds and nutritional therapy.
  • IV Therapy – especially glutathione to restore vitamin and mineral levels and enhance the immune system to fight off infections. Glutathione and phosphatidylcholine cross the blood-brain barrier.
  • Exosome therapy to regenerate cells, jumpstart the immune system, and bring down inflammation. We use a myriad of antioxidants that cross the blood-brain barrier, which not all practitioners do, making this treatment very powerful.
  • Improve autonomic dysfunction with Magnesphere Therapy.
  • Utilize infrared light, which has been shown to improve symptoms of long-haul COVID. We use the NovoTHOR Red Light Therapy.
  • Ozone IV therapy combined with UVB light optimizes cellular oxygen, detoxifies the liver, and directs your immune system to eradicate specific infections within your body.

Supplementation

In addition to your tailored treatment plan, we may recommend supplementation to aid healing. Dr. Kellman has extensively researched the gut/brain connection and the importance of your microbiome and utilizes high-quality prebiotics and probiotics to heal your gut and decrease inflammation. He may also recommend any of the following steps and supplements to bring you to complete healing from long-haul COVID.

  • Improve mitochondrial dysfunction with carnitine, ubiquinol, alpha-ketoglutarate, oxaloacetate, and additional supplements.
  • Reduce brain inflammation with Astaxanthin and a highly bioavailable form of Luteolin. Both supplements cross the blood-brain barrier.
  • Improve brain oxygenation and energy production and reduce free radicals with Methylene blue.
  • Utilize Peptides including Dihexa, Cerebrolysin, Semax, and Ipamorelin
  • Improve brain energy with creatine, SeroLastin, and additional supplements for brain health.
  • Reduce inflammation with MSM, a powerful anti-inflammatory compound.
  • Reduce micro-clots with Nattokinase and Lumbrokinase enzymes.
  • Introduce the right herbal immune modulators that target specific cytokines (messenger molecules of the immune system that are too high in long covid). Some herbs target TNF while others target IL-6, etc.
  • Heal the microbiome with prebiotics and probiotics, including Butyrate. Research suggests that healing the microbiome with targeted probiotics that modulate the immune system and reduce inflammation is vital.
