A New Age of Immune Challenges
With the ongoing global health challenges, understanding and countering immune dysfunction has become paramount. Among the numerous post-COVID-19 complications, long-haulers syndrome stands out, defined by persistent symptomology for four to six weeks or more.
Setting the Table: What’s the Problem?
Misinformation clouds our understanding of how the immune system operates. Our primary focus should be on maintaining a robust and resilient immune system. Surprisingly, global immune systems are showing signs of dysfunction. Dr. Silverman aims to shed light on this, unraveling the complexities of long-haul syndrome and immune function.
The Essence of Long-Haul Syndrome
Simply put, long-haul syndrome refers to a prolonged post-COVID-19 condition, often exceeding four to six weeks. As the world grapples with this pandemic, the importance of understanding and acting on these lingering symptoms becomes essential.
What’s Behind Long-Haulers Syndrome?
- Lung issues: Persistent breathing difficulties.
- Neurological problems: Cognitive challenges and nervous system complications.
- Cardiovascular concerns: Heart-related complications post-COVID.
- Gastrointestinal disturbances: Disruptions in the gut.
- Mental health: Emotional and psychological aftermath.
The Immune System: A Deeper Dive
Our immune system is split between the innate and the adaptive. Everyone possesses the innate system from birth, and it acts like our body’s ‘marines’, neutralizing foreign threats immediately. The adaptive system develops as we grow, involving T and B cells. The dysfunction occurs when there’s an imbalance between these systems, leading to autoimmunity and prolonged COVID-19 disease.
Addressing the Problem: Do We Have a Solution?
Indeed, there are actionable strategies, and Dr. Silverman presents his tried-and-tested protocol. Key ingredients for immune support include:
- Antioxidants: Vitamin D, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Glutathione.
- Essential minerals: Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium.
- Additional supplements: Vitamin C, medicinal mushrooms.
Additionally, lifestyle changes play a pivotal role:
- Nutrition: Focus on whole foods, avoiding processed carbohydrates.
- Exercise: Regular physical activity to maintain health.
- Sleep: Ensure consistent, high-quality sleep.
The Role of Laser Therapy
For over 12 years, Dr. Silverman has utilized low-level laser therapy. LLLT has shown promising results in countering immune dysfunction and promoting recovery. Specifically:
- Blocking gene expression: Violet light (405 nm) interferes with DNA replication and cell division.
- Preventing endothelial dysfunction: Low-level laser therapy aids in the prevention of this common post-COVID complication.
- Virus management: Lasers modulate cells, promoting healing and reducing viral load.
Closing Notes & Future Events
Dr. Silverman’s insights serve as a beacon for practitioners worldwide. Beyond this webinar, he has scheduled in-person workshops in the UK, aiming to further educate and collaborate with health professionals. As we navigate these challenging times, integrating such knowledge can pave the way for a healthier future.
