    The Silent Impact: Unraveling COVID-19's Hidden Ties to Heart Health

    The Silent Impact: Unraveling COVID-19's Hidden Ties to Heart Health

    The Silent Impact: Unraveling COVID-19's Hidden Ties to Heart Health
    Unveiling the Underlying Cardiovascular Implications of COVID-19
    In this episode of "The Hashimoto's Doctor Podcast", we're diving into the lesser-discussed realm of COVID-19's impact on heart health, specifically new research on how SARS-CoV-2 can infect cardiovascular plaque in the coronary arteries. 
    Our exploration will lead us to discuss how the virus can directly target arterial plaques, triggering inflammatory responses with potential long-term effects. We'll discuss the implications for those with pre-existing heart conditions and the potential link to long COVID symptoms.
    As we traverse this enlightening path, we'll also touch upon the principles of functional medicine and its approach to supporting the aftermath of COVID-19. From understanding the body's interconnected systems to addressing root causes, we'll explore strategies to support recovery and optimize cardiovascular health.
    Join us on this insightful journey as we unravel the hidden ties between COVID-19 and heart health. Whether you're keen on understanding the broader implications of the pandemic, intrigued by functional medicine, or simply aiming to safeguard your heart health, this episode is packed with invaluable insights.
    This episode is based on an important research update on COVID-19 and heart health.
    Recent research led by Dr. Chiara Giannarelli of NYU Grossman School of Medicine has made significant findings concerning the link between COVID-19 and cardiovascular complications.
    Key Insights:
    🔹 SARS-CoV-2 virus has been found to directly target and infiltrate arterial plaques in coronary arteries, triggering an inflammatory response.
    🔹 This direct infection can lead to cardiovascular manifestations, such as heart attacks, by promoting plaque inflammation and rupture.
    🔹 The study suggests that the virus creates an inflammatory environment that could exacerbate plaque growth, potentially obstructing blood flow to vital organs.
    🔹 Findings shed light on a potential connection between pre-existing heart conditions and long COVID symptoms.
    It's crucial for everyone, especially those with cardiovascular risks, to be informed and take necessary precautions. Stay updated, stay safe!

Informative but distracting

Good info, but the background noise in so many of the episodes is terribly distracting. Please don’t multi-task when recording your podcast.

Molanos ,

Good information poor recording quality

Really recording while driving? I can hear the turn signal

Negligent and self promoting

I’ve listened to a few of these podcasts which honestly sound like they’re filmed in a car without any real forethought or plan. Dr. Shook claims to be an expert on Hashimoto’s but many of his podcasts fail to even mention Hashimoto’s like his episode on why you can’t lose weight with Hashimoto’s. This episode was a rambling mess about intermittent fasting and Hashimoto’s was not mentioned even once. Well I’ve done that before being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and it didn’t change anything for me because there were a whole host of other issues that needed to be addressed. These podcasts are negligent and don’t offer information Hashimoto’s patients really need and come across as elitist and like he believes he is far better and smarter than his audience. There are plenty of actual experts in this field. I’ll stick their books than this self serving podcast.
