If you’re looking for a doctor who treats your Covid 19 Long haulers condition seriously, you are in the right place.
If you’ve been told there is nothing you can do, or it’s all in your head and now your feeling lost, frustrated and angry that no one is listening to you, then I want you to know you are not alone.
My name is Dr. Robert DeMartino and I’m a functional medicine doctor here in Henderson NV, in Las Vegas. I’ve been consulting with patients since 2005 and unfortunately for most, coming to me is their last resort.
Since we’ve had this global pandemic, I’ve started to see a lot of people now coming to consult with what is being termed Covid 19 Long-haulers.
Unfortunately most of these people are like you. They’ve consulted with doctors and either they’ve been told
“It’s nothing to worry about”
“You’ll eventually get over this” (yet the condition lingers for month and months)
“It’s all in your head”
I know this is frustrating for you, but it’s equally frustrating for me too, because this is not the truth.
The truth is, there is something wrong and you do have a problem. It’s not “made up in your head” and your problems need to be addressed.
The problem is the doctors you’ve been consulting don’t know where to look AND they don’t have a treatment protocol for you.
The good news is, we do have tests we can perform that may be able to help you get your life back.
What is Long-hualers
The most common symptom of long-haulers by far is fatigue. This is closely followed by shortness of breath and joint pain.
The most common reason I see these symptoms occuring are from a condition I’ve termed “energetic debt”.
What is energetic debt and how does this relate to long-haulers
Energetic debt is where on a cellular level, you’re cells are not functioning at 100%. Now in your other doctors defence they don’t know how to test for this and they wouldn’t also know how to treat it.
What is energetic debt? (please note, what I’m about to share with you is broken down simply in non medical terms to make it easy to understand, when I’m teaching this to doctors, my language would be different)
Energetic debt is a condition where the cells in your body start to lose energy (electrical energy). To help you better understand this, think of it like a business.
Every single business must be profitable to be sustainable. In other words, income must be greater than expenses. If a business is spending more money than they are making, eventually they go into debt.
Your body is similar. Every single cell requires a specific amount of energy (electrical charge) to be healthy.
So if you’re doing things that reduce the cellular energy, then your body starts to go into “debt”. And what happens is one part of the body will start to “take” energy from other parts.
The result is an overall loss of energy in your body.
And guess what happens next…that’s right
Your body starts to show signs (symptoms) of the problem. Generally one of the first symptoms is fatigue.
And if you don’t have enough energy and you start to do something that requires more energy like go up a flight of stairs, then you’ll see other symptoms (shortness of breath, heart palpiations, etc.)
And then a whole cascade of “other” problems can start to happen…
Remember, your body is intelligent, and the body will make intelligent choices based on the circumstances. So if you have a loss of energy at one of the more vital parts of your body, then the body “takes” energy from a less “vital” part to help keep the more vital parts working.
Can you start to see now why long-haulers symptoms can be so varied. The symptoms are based of where the body is trying to find “energy resources” to keep vital functions working. So for example, maybe in one person they have a loss of smell, because that’s not as important as keeping your heart and immune system running.
Now please know there are a lot of other factors that can affect what you have happening too. One big one is what we call co-morbidity. Co-morbidity is where you can have more than one condition and when you have two or more conditions going on at once, it can cause make treatment more difficult. For example if someone has diabetes and a digestive problem, both problems will be more difficult to treat.

In my Henderson NV clinic, we provide state-of-the-art treatment that is completely natural.
Our treatment uses advanced technology to help you restore your health.
The first step is to have your initial consultation with Dr. DeMartino. In this appointment, he will be doing testing to find out what’s wrong. He may require you to have additional lab testing done, but this will be determined at your first appointment.
Once this appointment is completed and Dr. DeMartino has all the information he requires to determine what’s wrong and the best way to help, you will come back for your 2nd follow up appointment where he will sit down with you and your spouse to explain the problems, how often and long you’ll need to see him, and how much it will cost.
Your follow-up appointments for treatment will each last approximately 30 minutes.
