Jennifer Green, ND, DC, Chief Clinician of Naturopathic Medicine at National University’s Whole Health Center-Lombard, recently shared some of the ways the clinic is successfully treating Long COVID in The Nursing Voice, the official publication of the Illinois Nurses Foundation and the American Nurses Association – Illinois.
In the December issue, Dr. Green discusses Long COVID’s similarities to post-viral syndrome. She shares some of the unique modalities clinicians and interns are using to treat Long COVID including the restoration of nutrient deficiencies, low level laser therapy, hydrotherapy and botanical medicine.
She also offers insight on how National University of Health Sciences is training the physicians of the future to treat this unique condition.
“Long COVID is an ailment current students can expect to see in practice well into the future. At the Whole Health Center, students are able to gain valuable experience before they even graduate. With each patient, students learn what symptoms to look for, the most pertinent history questions to ask, how to fine-tune their physician exam skills, and what is the most appropriate laboratory testing and medical work-up,” she said in the article.
