How does COVID affect the hypothalamus? Let’s talk about it.
When Covid shut us down in March 2020, I joined an online group of Covid survivors to see what they were describing. I suspected like EBV, Covid was going to have similar effects on the body long-term.
The survivors suffered from:
- Severe fatigue
- Brain fog
- New onset hormone issues
- Menstrual irregularities
- Erectile dysfunction
- Hair loss
All symptoms are highly suggestive of hypothalamic dysfunction. And about two months after I joined this group, French researchers found that the hypothalamus was being affected by Covid because it’s rich in ACE2 receptors.
The hypothalamus is not protected by the blood-brain barrier.
So what other infections, what other toxins may be damaging the hypothalamus? Because the hypothalamus is orchestrating every vital system – your neurological system, your immune system, your endocrine system, detoxification, digestion, and metabolism – it’s important that we pay attention to hypothalamic insults like SARS-COV-19.
In the next two decades, we will see an increase in metabolic conditions like diabetes which will lead to early onset cardiovascular disease, disability, and death all from so many people being infected with Covid.
Mitigating the effects of long Covid is yet another reason hypothalamus support is foundational to long-term health and well-being. For my long covid patients and customers, I recommend hypothalamus support with Genesis Gold® and extra Sacred Seven® amino acids to help mitigate the damage to the hypothalamus, restore neurological functioning, help with depression, brain fog and hormonal imbalances.
