In my post, Help My Child Has Long-Covid, I shared how my son started feeling bad a couple weeks after he had exposure to Omicron, even though he had not had any symptoms. The fact that his bloodwork came back normal, and the cyclical nature of his sickness has us suspecting that he may have Long-Haul Covid. We decided not to spend hundreds of dollars in further testing but to treat this as such, and use a safe child’s protocol for Long-Haul Covid. Today I want to share more about what that protocol is.
I have been working with the We Saved Our Mom team, and they have created a child’s protocol for Long-Haul Covid. This is the same protocol as their adult protocol, but stripped down to as few products as possible, and based on the child’s weight. With my son being 10 years old and about 75 lbs. they advised me to break that dosage down 40% to 50%. All of the supplements are very safe, and only the purple gromwell root needs to be used in a limited way. The purple gromwell root can have an impact on the liver so is not something they recommended taking for more than a month without adding liver protectors like NAC and silymarin.
1. Curcumin – 1500 mg
2. Berberine – 1500 mg
3. Pterostilbene – 250 mg
4. Alpha-Lipoic Acid – 500 mg
5. Purple Gromwell Root – 6000 mg (powder from Lithospermum erythrorhizon)”
Child’s Protocol for Long-Haul Covid
Based on the products I received and the amounts in the capsules this is what it broke down to for my son.
- Curcumin – 1 Capsule per day
- Berberine – 1 Capsule orally per day or two transdermal
- Pterostilbene – 1 Capsule per day
- Alpha-Lipoic Acid – 1 Capsule per day
- Purple Gromwell Root – 1 1/2 Tsp. per day
I also wanted my son to have the important basis of all the vitamins so essential to get over Covid and boost his immune system. So in addition to the above list, I added in IM-Shield.
In the next post, I will share how I had to change the protocol and the final healing of my child’s long covid. Read Part 3: I Helped My Child Recover From Long Covid.
