Conventional Medicine Limits Healing Options for Long-Haul COVID

Conventional Medicine Limits Healing Options for Long-Haul COVID Patients

It's been over three years since the COVID-19 pandemic began, yet conventional medicine still remains stumped on how to help patients with long-term symptoms.

Deemed “long-haul COVID”, the pervasive version of the SARS-CoV-2 virus affects nearly 1 in 5 adults who contract COVID, and comes with a laundry list of symptoms. Ranging from debilitating at worst to disruptive at best, these can include (but aren’t limited to): fatigue, cognitive dysfunction, headache, neurological issues, gastrointestinal problems or pain, and loss of taste or smell.

Long-Haul COVID

For patients experiencing this serious and unprecedented illness, it can seem that there is no end in sight. Meanwhile, the standard care continues to offer little hope, relying heavily on a routine treatment of antibiotics. Not only has this practice been largely ineffective throughout its implementation, but it also compromises patients’ long-term health, disrupting the gut microbiome and consequentially, the immune system.

Luckily, there ARE other options!

Functional Medicine for COVID

A holistic treatment philosophy that considers each individual medically, physically, neurologically, and psychologically, rather than treating health problems merely as isolated diseases, functional medicine focuses on getting to the root cause of disease and providing relief from existing symptoms without causing additional damage or side effects. By utilizing a combination of therapies and approaching healing from every possible avenue, functional medicine offers more tools to patients with long-haul COVID and maximizes healing odds. Working closely with each individual on a case-by-case basis to formulate the treatment that will best work for their unique situation.

Our Approach to Long-Haul COVID

Therapies and Approach

At Michigan Health and Wellness we have an individualized approach to long-haul COVID. In our evaluation and treatment plan we will take a look at:

  • Addressing any pre-existing conditions that may contribute to inflammation and COVID symptoms, such as diabetes, obesity, or auto-immune conditions
  • Resolving leaky gut and dysbiosis, which many researchers have hypothesized may be caused by and/or connected to COVID
  • Providing proper nutritional support to the body
    Improving sleep, one of the most impacted cycles by COVID that can lead to additional complications down the line
  • Restoring the immune system and stimulating the healing process from the inside-out

As the leaders for functional medicine in Traverse City, we’re proud to offer patients the most comprehensive protocols and highest level of care, including immune-boosting supplements, non-toxic treatments (such as hyperbaric oxygen and hyperthermic ozone therapy), and more.

The 3 Pillars of Functional Medicine for Long-Haul COVID

Deep Diagnostic

We go beyond the status quo to get a full and clear picture of your health and address any pre-existing conditions.

Finding the
Root Cause

By looking at environmental, lifestyle, and diagnostic factors we work to find the root cause.


Every person is different, and that is why our treatments and therapies are specific to your needs and diagnosis.

You Deserve to Utilize EVERY Available Tool for Your Healing

Common knowledge tells us to approach even minor health complications, like colds and flus, on multiple fronts: get lots of rest (support your immune system), drink lots of fluids (detox), eat some soup and take some vitamin C (ensure proper nutrition).

In these cases, it’s second nature for us to do everything in our power to restore health — so why should we settle for pigeon-holed treatment when health complications are even more serious? You deserve comprehensive, sustainable healing. Our functional medicine approach has helped countless patients from all walks of life find just that.
