FDA Expands Monoclonal Antibody Indications to Post Exposure Prophylaxis In Non-vaccinated Individuals
The use of Casirivimab/Imdevimab has been authorized for emergency use to treat mild to moderate COVID-19 in adult and pediatric patients with positive results of SARS-CoV-2 viral testing who are 12 years of age or older, weighing at least 40 kg, and who are at high risk of progressing to severe COVID-19 and/or hospitalization.

Tests For COVID-19 Done At Synergy Wellness
Rapid Antigen Test
The antigen test looks for active infection by detecting viral proteins in the nose. We offer the only two FDA EUA approved antigen tests, Quidel and Beckton Dickinson. Both require a nasal swab and takes only 15 minutes to give you an answer.
Rapid Antibody Test
Synergy also offers the rapid antibody test that looks for your body’s immune response to SARS-COV2 infection. We offer two FDA EUA-approved test that will give you an answer within 15 minutes of drawing your blood. The test will tell you if you have antibodies (IgM and IgG) to the virus. But please note that having either antibody does NOT suggest that you have an active infection or immunity for that matter.
Combining both the rapid antigen and antibody tests gives you a quick look for both active infection and immune response to COVID in 15 minutes.
The Abbot IDNow test is a rapid molecular Nucleic Acid Amplification TEst (NAAT) offering results in 15 minutes. This is a good test for pre-travel COVID testing.
Send off PCR Test with Variants
We also offer the send out the PCR test to look for the virus RNA in the nose. This is the gold standard for Coronavirus testing in the world right now. Despite the lack of supplies and delays in testing across the U.S., we are proud of our average 48-hour turn-around time for the PCR test. We often use this “gold standard” to confirm the negative antigen results from high-risk individuals, especially if the history and symptoms warrant it. Variant testing allows us to tell you what variant of COVID you have.

Low levels of vitamin D may increase rate of infection and risk of bad outcomes from COVID-19. Vitamin D is often low in those with darker skin color and maybe contributory to a higher rate of disease severity in African Americans and Hispanics.

A well-designed multivitamin helps to support key pivot points in immune function. This includes reishi mushroom extract and adaptogen eleuthero to promote physiological balance and moderate occasional stress, including corticosterone activity, cytokine balance, and nutrient metabolism.
Promotes sleep and enhances immune cell activity. Also a potent anti-oxidant.
An amino acid derivative that’s necessary for production of glutathione, the master antioxidant defense system of the cell. Acts also to thin mucus secretions which may decrease rate of respiratory tract infections as well as severity in patient with respiratory tract infections.
Master antioxidant of the cell. Decrease inflammation and help detoxification of drugs and toxins.
Flavanoid present in apples and oranges. Strong antioxidant and supports immune function and metabolic health. Maybe synergistic with vitamin C. Also acts as a senolytic, which turns off “burned out” cells.
