Evidence-Based Research & Nutraceutical Approaches to Managing Long Haul Syndrome w/ Dr. David Brady

This episode of Conversations for Health features Designs for Health, Inc. and Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory, LLC Chief Medical Officer, Dr. David Brady. With over 30 years of experience as an integrative practitioner and over 25 years in health sciences academia, Dr. Brady is a licensed naturopathic medical physician & clinical nutritionist, and professor and director emeritus of The Nutrition Institute at the University of Bridgeport.

In our conversation, Dr. Brady explores the rise and implications of long haul syndrome, or PASC, including popular correlation hypotheses, associations and patterns and insights from recent studies. He details the challenges of major gaps in long haul syndrome clinical care, patient stories, and developing nutraceutical and traditional treatment options that have proven effective, as well as his own case-by-case approach to helping patients manage long haul syndrome effectively as answers continue to be uncovered by researchers and medical professionals.

I’m your host Evelyn Lambrecht, thank you for designing a well world with us.
