Discover How The Gupta Program Can Support Your Recovery From Chronic Post-COVID-19 Syndrome
It's Not In Your Head. You Are Experiencing Real Physical Symptoms From A Real Physical Condition.
There Is Growing Evidence That ‘Long Haul’ COVID-19 Patients Are Developing Neuro-Immune Conditions Such As ME/CFS And Fibromyalgia
Throughout the pandemic, government policy, briefings and the media have overwhelmingly focused on patients in the severe category and those who are tragically passing away from the virus. However, there are many millions of people that have contracted the virus and unless their symptoms were classified as "serious", they are left to manage their debilitating and often frightening symptoms at home, often alone without a support network. Their suffering has become invisible.
The reality is that 10% of people are suffering from post-viral symptoms for at least three weeks and 5% can be debilitated for months.
-The Zoe Covid Symptom Study
Guidelines released by health organizations such as NHS, WHO and CDC state that "mild" COVID-19 symptoms typically resolve within 2 weeks, with more severe cases resolving in 6 weeks. However, emerging accounts from those who are classified in the so-called “mild” category are facing on-going debilitating post-viral symptoms, such as fatigue, brain fog, concentration problems and heightened emotions, for 3 or more weeks.
While some medical professionals are aware of this emerging news, others are not and as a result, patients are being disbelieved and dismissed. This leaves these Covid-19 sufferers vulnerable from a medical, social and employment perspective
Greater awareness is urgently needed as the number of cases continues to climb globally.
We Are Dedicated To Helping To Support The Unseen & Invisible Patients Of This Emerging Health Crisis
An Urgent Message From Chronic Illness Expert Ashok Gupta
Medical professionals, the media and society need to urgently take this seriously. We are on the brink of a devastating secondary pandemic of what we are terming "Chronic Post-Covid-19 Syndrome" or "CPCS", even in patients who may have been formally classified in the "mild" category.
This syndrome clearly has a profound effect on the brain and the body. It clearly is offering certain post-viral symptoms in many people. These patients require urgent assistance as they are not receiving the care, medical attention or treatment that is needed. A path myself and my clinic are unfortunately all too familiar with in our expertise in treating other parallel conditions such as ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia and MCS.

If You Think You May Have Post COVID-19 Syndrome, Please Make Sure you are Checked by Your Doctor. In Addition, Here Are 3 Steps You Can Take Right Now To Support Your Health
The Gupta Program Has Over 20 Years Supporting The Healing of Patients with Chronic Conditions Including ME/CFS and Post Viral Fatigue
For over two decades our professional clinic has been supporting patients with chronic conditions to rebalance their nervous systems and immune system using the principles of Neuroplasticity and Holistic Health practises.
Now with the increasing prevalence of patients worldwide that are experiencing an unexpected extended recovery, we knew it was our mission to step up and make our research and knowledge that has supported the healing of thousands of our patients, accessible to those who are suffering from what we term "Chronic Post-COVID-19 Syndrome (CPCS)".
It is imperative that we reach as many sufferers as we can to avoid another wave of ME/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia cases. These patients need specialist treatment to help guide them through their debilitating symptoms and guidance with brain retraining tools & techniques that can help to deeply rejuvenate their mind and body.
If you think you are suffering from Chronic Post Covid-19 Syndrome we invite you to sign up for our Free, 28-Day trial in consultation with your doctor to see if this treatment is right for you.
The Gupta Program Is A Powerful Add-On Treatment Alongside Any Physiotherapy and Pharmaceuticals You May Be Taking
The Gupta Program can be implemented alongside any physiotherapy, pharmaceutical therapy or other medical treatment you may be taking for Post Covid-19 Syndrome.
In fact, our revolutionary tools and techniques calm the body's overactive nervous system and immune system symptoms and put the body in an optimal healing state in a way that other treatments are unable to.

It Is A Common Misconception That People Are Passing From The Actual Virus Itself. In fact, It's Our Own Immune System Over-Responding To The Virus Which Is The Ultimate Cause
In the beginning, COVID-19 generally affects the nose. If our epithelial cells, our immune cells in our nose and the back of the nose, are able to defend against the virus, then it can be fought off then and there. If not, it travels down the back of our nasal cavity into our throat area. Once again, we have our immune system to fight it off at that location. However, if our immune system isn't strong enough and we don't manage to fight it off, it then continues into our lungs, and that's when people experience more severe illness.
Within the Gupta Program Amygdala and Insula hypothesis, our whole body- including our whole nervous system and brain - is designed for survival. So, when our bodies and our brains experience a threat, the number one priority is to defend against that virus or pathogen to ensure survival.
So when it starts invading the lungs, the immune system goes into this hyper response. It believes that, "Because I haven't been able to fight off this virus as it's transported down this respiratory tract, it's becoming more and more serious. Therefore, I need to unleash the best possible immune response that I can. I need to garner all the forces that I can to defend against it because my priority is ensuring survival."
The body enters into a cytokine storm, which is a severe immune reaction where an excessive amount of cytokines enter the bloodstream too rapidly. While cytokines play an important role in normal immune response, if they are released too rapidly it can be life-threatening.
As a result, the body develops pneumonia, which is a severe inflammation of the lungs. As a result, patients find it increasingly difficult to breathe. This is seen especially in more vulnerable types of patients that have a weakened immune system, people who are obese and those who smoke.
Research has shown that there may also be excessive inflammation in the other organs of the body including the kidneys and even the brain. It is at this point that the patients life is in danger.
If someone recovers from the acute phase of Covid-19, there are a percentage of patients who go on to experience chronic symptoms, even if they experienced a mild version of Covid-19:

The Evolutionary Basis for Why Covid-19 May Become Chronic
Over millions of years of evolution, our bodies have evolved so we can survive in our environment. Our body’s number one priority is survival! And there are threats that we face that can compromise our survival, and these can be of many different types.
In biology it is called the sympathetic nervous system response. And the opposite of the stress or sympathetic system is called the parasympathetic nervous system, often mediated by the vagus nerve. This is when the body calms down and heals, rests, and repairs itself.
However in the event of COVID-19, even once the virus has been fought off, the immune system and nervous system may have become traumatized, still stuck in hyper-response mode because it still believes it is in danger.
The body creates a unique pattern of defense response. The nervous system and the immune system stay in a traumatized state, a conditioned state. Therefore any mild triggers, for instance, opportunistic infections in the body, related or unrelated anxious experiences that patient is going through or even the symptoms of an overstimulated immune system themselves, become triggers for their own own immune system to keep overspending, to keep still defending against potential pathogens, just in case.
And it is this hyper-responsive and hyper-primed state of the nervous system and immune system, that creates the on-going symptoms themselves. The immune system always errs on the side of caution. Because its first priority is survival, it prioritizes that over feeling healthy and strong.
CPCS May Be What We Term A Neuro-Immune Conditioned Syndrome (NICS)
We call this collective group of conditions such as ME/CFS, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Post-Viral Fatigue and Associated Conditions, "Neuro-Immune Conditioned Syndromes” or “NICS”.
These defence responses are all over the body, but I believe that they start off in the brain.
You Have A Real Condition With Real Physical Symptoms, That May Be Caused By A Traumatic Event On The Brain as a Result of Covid-19
The Amygdala and Insula Hypothesis
The Amygdala & Insula Hypothesis a ‘vicious cycle’ that, once triggered by severe stressors in people with certain risk factors, can perpetuate neurological and immune over-stimulation, physiological dysfunction, and many physical symptoms.
These conditions are real physical illnesses in the body, and they are caused by the effects of a traumatic event on the brain. This causes the brain to go into an extreme survival mode. The brain becomes hypersensitive and hyper-reactive.
It is the brain which is over-triggering the sympathetic nervous system and the immune system. And this is due to something called “conditioning” – It is when our brains learn to do something new, again and again as a protective response. In the brain, the conditioning may specifically occur in parts of the brain called the insula and the amygdala, as shown in animal studies.
This hypothesis serves as a potential unifying model for the various observations in patients.

Amygdala & Insula Retraining (AIR) Within the Gupta Program Breaks This Vicious Cycle By Applying Techniques That Encourage The Brain To Discontinue This Over-Stimulation.
Luckily the amygdala and insula constantly communicates with other parts of the brain, and that’s where retraining can take place. Amygdala & Insula Retraining is designed to strengthen the prefrontal cortex and restore inhibitory mechanisms in the insula, anterior cingulate and other associated structures.
The unconscious brain reaction involved in amygdala and insula dysfunction is not normally under a patient’s control, but I believe that my highly specialized “brain retraining” techniques derived from NLP, Timeline Therapy, self-coaching, parts therapy, visualization, breathing, meditation techniques, and others, can target the reaction and control the amygdala and insula, and bring the brain and body back to homeostasis. These are not psychological techniques, but powerful proven neuroplasticity tools to support people's recovery from chronic conditions.
