Long COVID Program

What is Long COVID?

Some people who have been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 can experience long-term effects from that infection, known as long COVID or post-COVID condition.

Long COVID can include a wide range of ongoing health problems, these conditions can last weeks, months or years. Long COVID occurs more often in people who had severe COVID-19 illness but anyone who has been infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 can experience it.

While most people with long COVID have evidence of infection or COVID-19 illness, in some cases a person with long COVID may not have tested positive for the virus or known they were infected.

There is NO test that determines if your symptoms or condition is due to COVID-19 as long COVID is not one illness. Diagnosis of long COVID is based on your health history, including if you had diagnosis of COVID-19 either by positive test or by symptoms or exposure as well as based on health examination.


People with long COVID can have a wide range of symptoms that can last weeks, months or even years after infection. At times symptoms can go away and come back again. Long COVID symptoms may not affect everyone the same way.

Most common symptoms reported for long COVID:

  • Tiredness or fatigue that interferes with daily life
  • Symptoms that get worse after physical or mental effort
  • Subjective fever
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, persistent cough, palpitation
  • Difficulty thinking or concentrating is also referred to as “brain fog”
  • Headache
  • Sleep problem
  • Dizziness with or without standing up
  • Pins-and-needles feeling, peripheral neuropathy’
  • Change in smell or taste
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Diarrhea
  • Stomach pain
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Rash
  • Changes in menstrual cycle
  • Erectile dysfunction

Long COVID can cause multiorgan effects involving many body systems including heart, lungs, kidney, skin and brain. As a result of this effect, due to long COVID, person is likely to develop new health conditions such as diabetes, heart condition, blood clot or neurological condition compared with people who have not had COVID-19.

Research suggests that people who get COVID-19 infection after vaccination are less likely to report long COVID compared to people who are unvaccinated.

Since COVID 19 infection, has your physical strength and ability to do daily activities changed? Have you had COVID 19 infection and still feeling the effects or lingering symptoms of COVID 19?

HealthWorx Approach to Long COVID

At HealthWorx, we have developed a 3-month protocol to tackle long COVID symptoms with multi-disciplinary approach to address all symptoms:

Start with initial lab work to rule out other causes of symptoms.

Once diagnosis of Long COVID is made, treatment includes:

  • Initial and follow-up evaluation by HealthWorx physician
  • Oral supplements
  • Vitamin injection and infusion
  • Evaluation by Balance Functional Wellness provider to assess nutrition, fitness, sleep and stress
  • Evaluation by Compassionate Mind Counseling for behavioral therapy to assess depression, stress and anxiety

HealthWorx 3-month protocol targets:

Autonomic dysfunction that includes dizziness, palpitation, shortness of breath, upset stomach and other changes in body function that happen automatically.

Cognitive dysfunction that includes brain fog, trouble thinking clearly, memory changes, slowed attention and other symptoms related to brain function.

Viral persistence that leads to persistent COVID-19 virus effect causing damage to organs or the immune system to not function properly.

Sleep disturbances that include changes in sleep pattern or ability to sleep.

Exercise intolerance, mitochondrial dysfunction and fatigue that leads to exhaustion or low energy that interferes with daily activity.

Chronic inflammation that leads to joint pain, persistent inflammation causing multi-organ damage.

Gut/Microbiome dysbiosis that leads to nausea, diarrhea and affects gut health.

Disclaimer: Above treatment regimen with lifestyle changes has shown in observational study to improve activity of daily living. This is NOT A CURE, and some patients might not achieve complete normalization of symptoms, but lifestyle changes learned through this protocol will provide long term benefits for living healthy.

Lab evaluation could lead to new diagnosis or abnormality that may require further investigation (not included in this program). No imaging studies (CT, MRI, Ultrasound etc) are included in this program, which might be needed based on evaluation.
