I’m excited to bring you our second interview with a long-hauler. If you missed the last one, check out episode 35 for my interview with Beth O’Hara.
Today I’m talking with Jessica Drummond, who is founder and CEO of the Integrative Women’s Health Institute. She’s here to share her personal long-haul recovery story. At the time she caught the virus, she was super active and fit. But it left her with extreme fatigue, burning vascular pain and difficulty walking even to the end of her street.
She applied her clinical experience to her own case. It took quite some time but she’s back to about 80%.
For this episode and the last one, I created a one-page download with a short summary and links to some of the resources and studies Jessica mentions. You can find the link for the one-page summary for this episode on the episode home page at www.rebuldingmyhealth.com/long-haul-recovery.
In my talk with Jessica, you’ll hear…
- The steps that helped Jessica progressively improve her long-haul symptoms
- The impact of getting the shot AFTER she already had long-haul
- How antivirals impacted her long-haul recovery
- The role of breathwork, vagal nerve toning and autonomic nervous system retraining
- The treatment that helped heal her lungs
- Some mind-blowing science and studies behind the virus and long haul
- The impact of the virus on women’s cycles
- And how rest influences long-haul

Please note that – as always at Rebuilding My Health – this was one person’s health experience of long-haul and also of what she’s seen in some of her clients. It’s not intended to help treat the virus or long-haul but to offer some insight into what worked for someone else. Everyone is different so talk with your health practitioner about your own case.
