Nutritional Solutions for Long-Haulers

On this episode of HealthMade Radio: Dr. Michael Karlfeldt interviews Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., on the after-effects of viral infections.

For some individuals, the after-effects of the virus are creating complex illnesses to treat. Long Term effects from viral infections have been documented to include achy body, pain, brain fog, chronic cough, shortness of breath, plantation affecting the organs, heart, brain, lungs, and lessening degree, the kidneys. In his 30 years of clinical experience treating chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia (CFS/FMS), and in his landmark published research on CFS/FMS (published in the Journal of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum has found that his S.H.I.N.E.® approach is successful in the vast majority of patients. Dr. Teitelbaum, a board-certified internist and nationally known expert in treating complex illnesses, including chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sleep, and pain, believes with some common sense, we will do fine as a nation. 

In this episode, learn some encouraging facts:

  • Dr. Teitelbaum’s immunity-boosting protocols including Zinc, VIT A, D, C, K 
  • His secret to reducing stress: hint it involves reducing/eliminating media
  • Fascinating Biological Facts that differentiate men and women’s response to the virus
  • Pain is not an outside invader. It’s a regular alert system – a warning. When you give your body what it needs, the pain goes away.   
  • The unresolved concerns about the vaccine: 

               * Virus mutations and the effectiveness of the vaccine

               * The vaccine and your immune system response – a competitive inhibitor. 

  • The program developed by Dr. Teitelbaum for viral infection dealing with chronic fatigue and those still dealing with long-hauler symptoms 


In this study, over 90% of patients improved using the full S.H.I.N.E.® protocol, with an average of 75% improvement in quality of life at just three months! At two years, the quality of life increased to an average of 90%. By then, most people were able to wean off of most of their treatments/supplements. These treatments were basically like crutches that helped them recover. When well enough that the treatments are no longer needed, you can discard them.
