Post-infection Sequelae:
Pathophysiology and Potential Treatment Options

Presented by
David Lescheid, PhD, ND

What to expect

There is a great unmet need for treatment of viral infection sequalae. Reductionist, mainstream medical drugs are designed to provide a single-target benefit, whereas an integrative medical approach is well-suited for more comprehensive relief. This is due to the complex and dynamic symptomatology and the multiple potential causes observed in these patients. In some patients, even though a primary cause has been addressed, lingering symptoms still present.

The mixed pathophysiology may include:

• An altered immune response with non-resolving inflammation or autoimmunity

• Mitochondrial dysfunction

• A persistent viral infection or reactivation of
latent viruses

• Impaired autonomic nervous system responses

• Leaky gut/endotoxemia

Join Dr. Lescheid for this critical investigation of viral infection sequalae. Healthcare professionals will come away with a deep understanding of the scientific evidence, risk factors, and interacting underlying mechanisms. Practically, clinicians will learn how to identify these patients and implement an integrative systems-level approach to their treatment.
