In the first of its kind study, Dr. Bishara and her colleagues discovered and published a scientific review linking gut health and deficiencies of certain gut microbes to Covid severity.
The theory also provides a valid explanation for why children are not getting as sick from Covid-19 as adults. Children have a much higher concentration of a specific gut bacteria that appears to regulate the same immune pathways that lead to the deadly Cytokine Storm, causing more severe Covid related illness.
Since this publication in May 2020, additional studies worldwide have validated what Dr. Bishara and her colleagues published in their review — that gut health indeed impacts Covid severity.
