Long COVID Series with Dr Been 2022

This video series, Long Story Short with Dr. Been, features one of the internet’s most popular medical educators.

A medical doctor and software engineer, Dr. Mobeen Syed (known to his fans as Dr. Been) has been teaching medicine since 1994. He collaborated with the FLCCC Alliance to create the I-RECOVER protocol to treat long COVID.

Did you know chronic inflammatory diseases caused 52% of worldwide deaths? The series is an incredible educational resource and, of course, it’s free.  

This video series will explore emerging topics and research regarding long COVID and other pandemic-related issues in Dr. Been’s informative, engaging style.

Episode 1: COVID and changes in brain structure


Welcome to the inaugural episode of the Long Story Short with Dr. Been series.

Dr. Been reviewed the latest research and developments related to Long COVID and changes in brain size and structure.
 


Episode 2: Diabetes and Long COVID

In this second video of a series for FLCCC, Dr. Mobeen Syed takes a look at a study discussing the incidence of diabetes and Long COVID. A medical doctor and software engineer, Dr. Mobeen Syed (known to his fans as Dr. Been) has been teaching medicine since 1994. He collaborated with the FLCCC Alliance to create the I-RECOVER protocol to treat long COVID:



Episode 3: Post-vaccine Pediatric Patients and Cardiac Issues

Persistent MRI Findings in Children After Pfizer Vaccine, Seattle Children’s Hospital - In this study the researchers followed-up on children that had myocarditis from the second dose of the Pfizer-BionTech vaccine. Most of the abnormalities had resolved except that the abnormal strain persisted for the majority of the patients.



Episode 24: When Does Autophagy Begin?

Dr. Ana Maria Cuervo, MD, Ph.D notes that macroautophagy starts within 30 minutes to an hour of starvation. When do we starve? In the intermittent fasting of 8-16. The macroautophagy starts within 8 hours if there are no snacks. The chaperon mediated autophagy occurs during the 16 hours. If you keep the 16 hours window including the sleep then the neurons are able to perform autophagy as well.



Episode 23: Unusual Symptoms and Risk Factors of Long COVID

In this large-scale matched pair study from the UK, researchers describe the top risk factors for Long COVID. Let’s review.



Episode 22: SARS-COV-2 Persists in Tissue for Months

In this study from NIH, the authors demonstrate the presence of replication competent virus genome in a vast array of human organs and cells even after asymptomatic infection. Let’s review the findings and what it means for Long COVID treatment and research.



Episode 21: Heart Damage, mRNA and Adolescents



Dr. Been reviews stunning data from the preprint Thai study: Heart Damage by BNT162b2 Vaccine in Children, a prospective cohort study of school children receiving BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.



Episode 20: Coffee Induces Autophagy



Coffee Achievers take note, this week Dr. Been reviews a study from Singapore that demonstrates how caffeine helps reduce lipid fats by inducing autophagy — the concept that the host heals itself. Intermittent Fasting-induced autophagy is an essential element of FLCCC’s I-RECOVER protocols. Recently Dr. Mark said, “There is only one way to get rid of spike protein, and that’s by stimulating autophagy. That is the only way.”



How Spike Protein Damages Mitochondria



Spike protein. It is something we have heard a lot about over the past couple of years in relation to COVID-19. But how does the spike protein actually cause cell damage? In this study, researchers provide unique insight into the mechanism of damage and the evidence of damage in brain microglial cells using a Raman microspectrometer. Let’s review.



Four Main Predictors of Long COVID


Episode 18 features new studies assessing the incidence and prevalence of Long COVID. Dr. Been reviews the research and the possibility that, for the first time, four main predictors of long COVID, were identified during the acute phase of the disease.



Autophagy with Intermittent Fasting, Spermidine and Resveratrol



In this lecture, Autophagy with Intermittent Fasting, Spermidine and Resveratrol, we explore autophagy – what it is and how it works to clear pathogens (virus, bacteria, fungus, other offending agents) from the cell. Intermittent fasting, resveratrol, spermidine and other therapeutics can also be used for potentially great effect.



Reinfection and Risk of Long COVID



In episode 16 of Long Story Short, Dr. Been examines two studies focused on Reinfection and Risk of Long COVID and Severe Outcomes – one from the U.S. VA Hospital system and one from Qtar. One study showed reinfection increases the risk of hospitalization, death and sequela regardless of the vaccination, and one suggested no correlation between reinfection and severe outcomes.



Long COVID 76% less likely from Omicron than Delta, according to new study



This week Dr. Been examines the Zoe app study that demonstrated in some cases the risk of Long COVID in the Omicron era is 76% less than Long COVID in the Delta era. The findings of the study were published as a letter in the Lancet.



Brain Fog and Neurogenesis



In Lecture 14 of Long Story Short, Dr. Been examines Brain Fog and Long COVID. “As the pandemic of neurological and neuropsychiatric issues continues to expand because of Long COVID and vaccine injuries, it is important for us all to understand what lifestyle and diet changes may help combat the neurological deterioration and restore the neurogenesis process.”



Dandelion Leaf Extract Reduces Spike Binding



In this in-vitro study researchers from the University of Munich show that dandelion leaf extract has a potent inhibitory effect on the SARS-COV-2 spike binding to ACE2.



T-Regulatory Cells and Chronic Inflammation



Lecture 12 of Long Story Short with Dr. Been completes the chronic inflammation series, reviews a promising area of immunology and reveals “the big topic — T Regulatory (TReg) cells” and their function.



Chronic Inflammation – Immune Regulation Mechanisms



Continuing with the chronic inflammation series, Lecture 11 of Long Story Short examines the role of T Regulatory (TReg) cells and the immune system. Dr. Been demonstrates a few examples including persistence of the antigen, negative feedback mechanisms for the innate arm, roles of IL-10, IFN-gamma, and IL-12, antibody.



Chronic Inflammation – Pathogen Elimination and Important Inflammatory Cytokines



In this talk Dr. Been covers the mechanisms at the core of chronic inflammation and discusses how the inflammatory process is executed to contain microbes, repair tissue damage and to remove microbes, damaged tissue cells, worn out cells and irritants.



Chronic Inflammation — A High-Level Overview



Fifty percent of worldwide deaths occur due to the diseases with underlying chronic inflammation. 60% of Americans have a chronic inflammatory condition and more than 20% have more than one chronic inflammatory disease. Therefore, it is important as clinicians and patients to understand the immunology of inflammation. This will help us select the best approach for diet, lifestyle and therapies as well as the most useful labs to appropriately manage and treat chronic inflammation.



Long COVID and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome



For lecture 8 in the series, Dr. Been focuses on Long COVID, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Endocrine Perspective. Front and center is an article published December 2021 featuring curated studies that indicate a possible disruption of suprarenal (adrenal glands) and resultant chronic fatigue.



How Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) in Vaccines May Cause Allergic Reactions



PEG is an important part of the lipid nanoparticles based vaccines. Moderna COVID vaccine mRNA-1273 and Pfizer-Bio-n-Tech COVID vaccine BNT162b2 contain PEG2000 in abundance. Let’s review why some people are getting allergic reactions with these vaccines, and the impact on the patient’s immune system for the future PEGylated therapies.



Characteristics of Long COVID



In this episode, Dr. Mobeen Syed discusses a study in which researchers from the UK and US collected data to present long COVID symptoms, how prolonged the symptoms were and the impact they had on patients. This discussion sets the stage for us to understand the body’s organ systems involved, and the diversity and scale of clinical presentation. In upcoming talks we will discuss the pathophysiology and management approaches.



The Prevalence of Long COVID in the UK and Common Symptoms



Dr. Been reviews the prevalence of Long COVID in the UK and its common symptoms; a 2020 study demonstrating Long COVID in acute COVID patients; and wraps up with a study of Long COVID characteristics in France.



Epstein-Barr Virus and Long COVID



Dr. Been examines the Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) and Long COVID in four videos.

Video 1: A study showing that Long COVID is associated with reactivated EBV.

Video 2: The serology of the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV).

Video 3: A June 2021 study that showed 30% of Long COVID patients had EBV reactivation.

Video 4: A May 2021 study from China concluding a high incidence of EBV co-infection in COVID patients.
