Mental Health and Post-Covid Management

Long Covid Management

The aftermath of acute COVID-19 infection, often referred to as post-acute COVID-19 syndrome (PACS) or “long COVID,” has brought with it a multitude of lingering symptoms such as fatigue, cognitive disturbances, respiratory issues, and a decreased quality of life. While traditional medical modalities grapple with the nuances of this condition, HyperCharge Clinics stands at the forefront of therapeutic interventions grounded in recent scientific advancements. Here’s a closer look:

Fatigue Management and Improved Sleep Quality

Fatigue is one of the cardinal symptoms reported by those suffering from long COVID. A pivotal study by Dougal et al. (2021) and another by Ilic et al. (2021) both found that whole-body photobiomodulation (PBM) had a significant positive impact on fatigue reduction, improved sleep quality, and increased energy levels when applied for 20 minutes daily over several weeks. These findings mirror the assertions from another study by Wang et al. (2022), which specifically explored the therapeutic potential of red light therapy (RLT) on similar parameters.

Enhanced Cognitive Functions:

Cognitive disturbances or “brain fog” have been widely reported in PACS. A study by Ilic et al. (2022) showed that PBM therapy, when administered for 20 minutes per day for 10 weeks, resulted in marked improvement in cognitive functions, encompassing domains like attention, memory, and processing speed.

Quality of Life Improvements

The holistic health of an individual isn’t just about the absence of disease, but also about their overall quality of life. A noteworthy study by Dong et al. (2022) highlighted the remarkable benefits of PBM therapy in enhancing multiple facets of quality of life, including physical function, mental health, and social interactions.

Supporting the Evidence with Rigorous Trial Data

It’s worth mentioning that the positive outcomes of PBM therapy aren’t solely based on pilot studies. A randomized controlled trial conducted by Zhang et al. (2022) further corroborated the findings by showing notable reductions in fatigue, enhancements in sleep quality, and an uptick in energy levels among PACS patients undergoing PBM therapy. At a time when the world is still deciphering the intricacies of post-COVID syndrome, HyperCharge Clinics is pioneering treatments that are not only innovative but also backed by emerging scientific literature. By focusing on interventions like PBM and RLT, the clinics are showcasing a path that champions the body’s inherent ability to heal, recover, and thrive in the face of adversity. The evidence is mounting; the time to consider these modalities for the betterment of countless lives affected by long COVID is now.

Mental Health Targeting

Depression & Anxiety

A seminal study from the Journal of Molecular Psychiatry elucidated the paramount role of mitochondrial dynamics in major depressive disorders. In essence, disturbances in our cellular “powerhouses” (mitochondria) can profoundly influence our mood. The Journal of Neuroscience further identified that individuals with anxiety-related behaviors often presented with distinct mitochondrial disruptions.


Research published in JAMA Psychiatry revealed specific mitochondrial anomalies in children with autism, suggesting a potential link between these cellular variations and the onset of the disorder.


The Journal of Psychiatric Research has illustrated the potential efficacy of red light therapy in managing PTSD, theorizing that this treatment may offer a recalibration of trauma-impacted brain functions.


PEMF’s role in modulating addiction pathways was detailed in. The journal’s findings highlighted PEMF’s potential in balancing neurotransmitter levels, crucial in addiction therapy.


Enhancing mitochondrial health to decelerate the progression of dementia was a core insight of the Journal of Neuroinflammation. This perspective aligns seamlessly with HyperCharge Clinics’ therapeutic offerings.


The Journal of Neural Transmission detailed notable variations in mitochondrial functionality in children with ADHD. These cellular differences could play a role in the manifestation of ADHD symptoms.

Red Light Therapy

Beyond its applications for conditions like depression and PTSD, red light therapy’s neuroprotective attributes, as documented in Photomedicine and Laser Surgery, render it invaluable for addressing an array of neurological disorders.

PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy)

PEMF’s distinct capacity to influence brain activity, as emphasized in Neuropsychopharmacology, showcases its potential in addressing diverse mental health concerns.

EWOT (Exercise with Oxygen Therapy)

EWOT, a method that combines physical exercise with oxygen inhalation, has been documented to enhance cognitive functions and improve cerebral oxygenation, contributing to overall mental health improvements.


Utilizing specially designed devices to boost cell repair and regeneration, NanoVi’s approach has shown promise in reducing oxidative stress, thereby aiding in cognitive clarity and overall brain function.

Transcranial PBM (Photobiomodulation)

This non-invasive therapy, employing specific wavelengths of light, targets the brain to foster cellular repair and neural connectivity. Its potential benefits encompass cognitive enhancement, mood stabilization, and increased cerebral blood flow.


A dynamic brain training tool, neurofeedback has been cited in numerous studies for its efficacy in treating various mental health disorders. By modulating brain wave patterns, it can assist in self-regulation, attention improvement, and emotional processing.

Whole-Body Photobiomodulation (PBM) and Its Role in Treating Long COVID

Whole-body photobiomodulation (PBM) has emerged as a noteworthy modality in the medical landscape, especially in the context of long COVID management. Here’s a closer look at its efficacy and potential:

Whole-Body Photobiomodulation and Long COVID

Understanding PBM

Photobiomodulation refers to the use of red or near-infrared light to stimulate, heal, regenerate, and protect tissue that has either been injured, is degenerating, or else is at risk of dying. Whole-body PBM means that the treatment covers large areas, if not all, of the body simultaneously, instead of targeting specific locations.

Mechanism of Action

PBM acts primarily on the cell mitochondria, the energy-producing components of cells. By enhancing mitochondrial function, it promotes cell repair, reduces inflammation, and fosters a balanced immune response.

Benefits for Long COVID Patients

(01) Reduction in Inflammation

Chronic inflammation has been observed in many long COVID patients. PBM, with its anti-inflammatory properties, can aid in reducing prolonged inflammation, aiding in quicker recovery.

(02) Improved Cellular Energy

One of the key complaints in long COVID is fatigue. By enhancing cellular energy production through mitochondrial stimulation, PBM can contribute to an overall feeling of revitalization.

(03) Neurological Symptom Management

Some studies indicate that PBM may improve neurological functions, thereby helping manage brain fog and cognitive disturbances often associated with long COVID.

Treatment Protocol

HyperCharge Clinics employ a structured approach to whole-body PBM treatments. Tailored protocols based on individual symptomatology, duration of illness, and clinical evaluations ensure maximum efficacy.

Safety and Efficacy

Adherence to stringent safety protocols ensures that the procedure remains non-invasive with minimal to no side effects. 

Integration with Other Modalities

At HyperCharge Clinics, whole-body PBM is often integrated with other therapeutic modalities, ensuring a comprehensive treatment approach. Its complementary nature can enhance the effects of other treatments, providing a holistic recovery pathway.
