Long Covid is a medical condition used to describe various symptoms that persist for months to years after the acute phase of a COVID-19 infection has resolved. While many people with COVID-19 experience mild symptoms and recover within several weeks, certain individuals continue experiencing a variety of symptoms long after their initial illness. These symptoms can be diverse and affect different systems of the body.

Understanding Long COVID: A Regenerative Medicine Perspective
Long COVID’s Prevalence & Impact on Individuals
Per a scientific study published in The Lancet in January 2021 reported that 76% of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 experienced at least one persistent symptom six months after the onset of their illness. Another study published in JAMA Network Open in July 2020 found that about 35% of individuals who had mild COVID-19 symptoms still reported not being back to their usual state of health two to three weeks after testing positive.
How many people experience Long COVID?
Per the World Health Organization, studies show that around 10–20% of people infected by SARS-CoV-2 may go on to develop symptoms that can be diagnosed as long COVID.
COVID can create long lasting impact on mitochondria by promoting spike proteins sticking to cells leading to immune related cytokine storm of inflammation which can lead to fatigue, reduced ATP (energy) production, brain fog by inhibiting Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), depersonalization, depression, and neuropathy. It is vital to detox spike protein, optimize mitochondrial health, reverse oxidative stress through regenerative medicine treatment in order to fully recover from long covid. Undoubtedly, without proper spike protein detox, symptoms typically worsen over time. It is imperative to perform a full body long covid spike protein detox protocol to provide long term health benefits.
Common Symptoms Associated with Long COVID
- Myocarditis: Multiple studies have confirmed myocarditis an inflammation of the heart related to spike protein whether from covid or from the vaccine itself. The probability of a cardiac arrhythmia increased due to the inflammation leading to cardiac arrest.
- Balance Problems: Patients at Regenerative Medicine LA commonly complain of a feeling where their brain and body is disconnected. We believe this disorientation is caused by spike protein inflammation to the cerebellum in the brain.
- Long Covid Fatigue: Fatigue is common for long haulers due to disruptions in the Krebs Cycle, thus limiting energy production in the mitochondria. Theories range from DNA adduct formation disrupting proper mitochondrial functioning to spike protein inflammatory response disrupting normal mitochondrial behavior.
- Vertigo/Dizziness: We have seen patients in our office complaining of dizziness for several years, since the virus and vaccine have only been here since 2020, the duration of dizziness related to long covid is unknown.
- Headaches & Migraines: Studies show how important the dura matter surrounding the brain is in regards to headaches. If the dura mater is contracted either due to inflammation, dehydration, or mineral deficiencies, a headache can be the result.
- Vagus Nerve Issues: POTS has been a common finding amongst covid vaccinated patients. According to a study by Eldokla, case reports reveal a correlation between the injection and POTS immediately thereafter.
- Histamine Reactions: We believe the spike protein may cause Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS) causing hypersensitivity with certain foods and or chemicals leading to histamine allergic reactions.
- Long Covid Muscle Twitching: Muscle twitching, medically referred to as fasciculations, can be a concerning symptom for individuals experiencing long COVID, particularly when considering its potential associations with upper motor neurons. It’s important to note that fasciculations can be benign, but when they originate from upper motor neurons, the possibility of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) must be considered and ruled out. Long COVID can present a wide array of symptoms, and muscle twitching is one of them. These involuntary muscle contractions often manifest as small, rapid movements beneath the skin’s surface and can occur in various parts of the body. In our office at Regenerative Medicine LA, we have personally treated over 50 patients under the age of 50 diagnosed with ALS all within 6 months of receiving the same thing in their body. VAERS has reported ALS as a side effect. Dr. Ghalili believes spike protein may bring on early onset ALS in patients who may have encountered the condition later in life.
Symptom Highlight: Covid Tongue After Recovery
COVID tongue, also known as “COVID-19 tongue,” can manifest as a distressing post-recovery symptom in individuals who have battled the virus. This condition often presents itself through various signs and symptoms, including dry mouth, loss of taste (a condition known as dysgeusia), and candida infections. Dry mouth, medically referred to as xerostomia, can be particularly uncomfortable and may lead to difficulties in speaking and swallowing. Loss of taste, on the other hand, can greatly affect one’s quality of life, as it may diminish the enjoyment of food and beverages. Candida infections, such as oral thrush, are opportunistic fungal infections that can arise when the immune system is weakened, which can happen during and after a COVID-19 infection. It’s important to note that COVID tongue after recovery can vary in duration and severity from person to person. If symptoms persist or worsen, seeking guidance from a medical provider is advisable. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using sugar-free lozenges or gum can help alleviate dry mouth. To address the loss of taste, it is essential to be patient, as this symptom may gradually improve over time. Maintaining proper oral hygiene, including regular brushing of teeth and tongue with fluoride free toothpaste, can help prevent or manage candida infections. Overall, while COVID tongue can be a challenging issue to contend with, it is often temporary, and with proper self-care and medical attention, relief and recovery are possible.
How Do Regenerative Medicine Therapies Target Long COVID Symptoms?
Spike protein detox is absolutely necessary to recover from Long Covid and Covid vaccine injuries. Research has shown spike protein binding tightly to the nicotinic receptor, which we believe is leading to long haul symptoms. With proper detoxification using customized supplement therapy, followed by intravenous vitamin therapies, followed by stem cell therapy which has shown promising results in scientific published studies; all of which we offer at Regenerative Medicine LA. In our clinic, we have anecdotal evidence of ozone therapy showing the most promising long covid reversal results. Stem Cell Therapy assists in cytokine regulation, T helper cell migration, formation of new healthy mitochondria and repair of damaged cells.
Regenerative Therapies for Long COVID Symptoms
Regenerative therapies are necessary for Covid Long Haul as this is the only way to regenerate the mitochondria. Natural Treatments have been proven to detoxify spike protein which is the leading cause of inflammation post Covid. The spike protein attaches to the nicotinic receptor in the body and must be removed. Nattokinase, Bromelain, and Curcumin are just several supplements that assist with cellular detox of spike protein.
Mesenchymal Stem Cell Therapy for Lung & Respiratory System Repair
The cytokine storm caused by Covid itself can lead to scarring of the lungs, thus stem cells are imperative to modulate immune system function to reduce the body’s attack on spike protein. Fibrotic tissue can form in the lungs leading to permanent shortness of breath, thus early treatment is recommended.
Exosome Therapy for Immune System Modulation
Exosomes have been shown scientifically to convert M1 inflammatory macrophages to M2 anti-inflammatory macrophages. Exosomes are cell signaling proteins secreted by stem cells. They lack DNA and are RNA proteins, this is important because your body can never mount an immune response to them like they can with umbilical cord stem cells.
Red Light Therapy
Infrared light therapy relieves TLR-4 dependent hyper-inflammation of the type induced by COVID-19. exposure to our 40 minute Low Level Laser Therapy Light Bed with high-intensity creates a significant reduction in the TLR-4 dependent inflammatory response pathway, thus reducing inflammation for long haul covid patients. Studies show a 80% decline in secreted cytokine IL6 (pro-inflammatory response) with the use of one light bed session.
Patients receiving high dose customized Regenerative IV Therapy typically feel better after one round of treatment, however a minimum of 5 sessions is recommended for the Long Haul Covid Regenerative Program. Our testimonial videos speak for themselves, view them here!
Supplements for Long Covid
Supplements offer a multifaceted approach to Long COVID symptom relief, addressing various aspects of the condition. Learn about some ways in which long covid supplements can make a significant difference in your recovery journey.
Regenerative medicine offers various cell-tissue therapeutics and related products, such as stem cell therapy, natural killer (NK) cell therapy, Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cell therapy, exosomes, and tissue products. Interestingly, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) can reduce inflammatory symptoms and protect against cytokine storm, which critically contributes to the COVID-19 progression.
