Interviewing leading health practitioners on Long Covid and treatment of chronic fatigue conditions, Gez Medinger has been compiling incredible resource on his youtube channel, for COVID Longhaulers and their healthcare practitioners. A film maker, paramedic in training and Longhauler himself, Gez has been doing so much research in this area and I was really delighted he invited me to contribute to this fantastic resource. We covered a lot of ground, talking about the role of foods, prebiotics and probiotics in supporting microbiome health in inflammation and Long Covid.
