Friendly reminder: I am an herbalist, not a medical doctor. I love plants, PubMed, and combining tradition with science. My mission with this episode is to break down everything I know about post-COVID syndrome and get to the root of how we can fully heal our bodies after experiencing infection or prolonged periods of stress. In this episode I will share what I’ve learned from other professionals who are currently treating post-COVID syndrome.

Post-COVID hair loss is something we’ve been hearing more and more about over the past few months, and has been at the top of my mind after hearing experiences from so many in the OO community. Today I’m going to share my perspective as an herbalist on the what, why, and how we can support our bodies as we recover and convalesce. We’ll chat about “Telogen Effluvium” (hair loss that shows up several months after a fever or infection), the effects of stress and how B vitamins get depleted, and why mushroom broth may help with post-infection immune dysregulation.
