EP. 152: Exercise & Long COVID | Quick + Dirty

Dr. Tyna Moore

In this episode, I’m unpacking the latest data on long covid and exercise. Contrary to conventional wisdom advising against physical activity for post-viral syndrome, I push back, drawing from my own experience with a similar condition dating back to my teenage years, and insights from recent studies. From dissecting mitochondrial and metabolic dysfunction to scrutinizing the effects of various exercise modalities, I emphasize the significance of movement and cultivating a supportive network. Tune in as we untangle the intricacies of long covid and reshape the conversation surrounding exercise and recuperation.

  1. Wow! Thank You Dr Tyna!I have CMV, EBV, low IGE E, Asthma, Fibromyalgia, Hypermobility Syndrome and I am morbidly obese. Although Ive been obese all my life, I always walkedn did dance cardio, etc. I had no idea about the effects of post viral issues until 12 years ago. At 445 pounds, I had gastric bypass (RNY) PT. I lost my ability to walk because I was malnourished. I have struggled with chronic pain, infertility, PCOS, ASTHMA, sinus infections, migraines for years. All most of my doctors have said to ke is lose weight (this is after going from 445 to 235. I have never been able to get below 235.I stabilized at 245. Was slowly building muscle, more active than I had been, but suffered with severe recurring bronchitis, muscle weakness, gait and balance problems. One neurologist said he thought i was faking my balance problems and dismissed EBV and MCV as root causes of my deteriorating health. In 2019, I was in the best shape of my life. I had worked hard in physical therapy to walk independent of the walker and used the cane as needed.Between 2020 and 2023 I lost my father, changed jobs, family illnesses and the list goes on. At the ending of 2022, I got hit pretty bad with COVID. I regained 60 pounds and I'm struggling. After not using assiated devices for almost 2 years, I began losing my balance and all my symptoms returned with a vengence. All ive ever been told is lose weight, not fix your cells. Ive done all the things for years and I can not function the way I used to. Recently, I realised that I was not sweating. I thought it was one of my medications but it wasnt. I am always cold, and have idiopathic polyneuropathy which happened after the surgery. I began researching saunas and there is nothing close enoughn so I bought a sauna blanket feom LifePro. Ive only used it twice, but for the fist time in 10 years, my body sweated. I go to PT 2x weekly, and that about wioes me out. After Covid, i talked to my physical therapist about my inability to exercise or do anything. He suggested endurance training and told me about the research on resting in between our sessions, doing slow and low. I am still struggling, but my strength is slowly returning. It is an uphill battle, but I am determined with God's help, that the second half of my life is going to be greater than the first.

  2. Anybody that finds this I just want to share my experience. I got covid 2 years ago and couldn’t get out of bed for 2 months, going into it I was in great shape…. The thing that got be better was exercise. After those two months I just started walking around the house, then I made it down the driveway, then walking around the neighborhood, then added strength training (functional kettlebells). Thanks for confirming my journey Dr tyna. You have a big fan here! I recently started micro dosing glp1s as well (actually micro dosing, 1/5 the starting dose) and I’ve gotten my life back. Love how you don’t take shit and preach truth ❤

  3. Everything you have said is how I've felt since my 20s when I had graves disease. I was told I had an intolerance to exercise. I've worked out on and off through the years. 2023 I did 3 spartan sprint races just to say I did it. After the 3rd I caught covid for the second time. Since then I have felt awful and not able to work out like I did in 23. I want to be able to work out again, I just haven't figured out how!

  4. Can you please address adrenal and thyroid?

  5. Wow! You are glowing.
    Everything you're speaking about and doing, is working for you beautifully.
