Show Notes

Meet Daniel Baden – an extremely well-known and respected name in the Australian naturopathic community.

He is a naturopath and homoeopath, and has also taken on many roles over the years including; working with industry regulatory committees, providing technical support to practitioners, assisting various groups in research projects, lecturer, author, and, possibly the role he’s best known for, the co-founder and executive director of BioMedica Nutraceuticals.

He is a trusted speaker, with a “no stone left unturned” scientific approach to his research and presentations. He somehow manages to seamlessly blend traditional naturopathic philosophy with the latest cutting edge research. Which is why we love him, and why he’s the perfect person to speak to about this episode’s topic.

You see… there’s been a “certain virus” on the loose for the last couple of years, and we’re seeing a LOT of people pulling up super rough from it.

Now… in the naturopathic world, we’ve been banging on about something called post viral fatigue for decades… which means we already have plenty of tools and learnings that we can apply to the current situation. But this latest pandemic has really taken things up a notch. So let’s pick Daniel’s brain for some clinical GOLD.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • What exactly is post viral fatigue?
  • Who is susceptible to long Covid and post viral fatigue (and why?).
  • Which factors can predispose us to ongoing symptoms?
  • Why is Covid causing so many ongoing issues?
  • How Covid triggers inflammation (and what to do about it).
  • Things to consider when addressing long Covid (hint – it’s not just about herbs and supplements!).
  • A little about other viruses that cause ongoing fatigue, like Epstein Barr (glandular fever).
  • Why the microbiome is so important when healing from a virus.

This is a fascinating blend of science and evidence-based info, with a wonderful heartfelt sprinkling of naturopathic philosophy throughout.
