“Treating several individuals suffering from post-COVID-19 syndrome with a nicotine patch application, we witnessed improvements ranging from immediate and substantial to complete remission in a matter of days.”
Dr. Weeks’ Comment: Rudolf Steiner taught that things are neither good or bad but simply have effects so one needs to chose according to one’s values. Otherwise stated: Don’t judge. Wonder. Don’t say “no” rather say “Oh”. Curiosity may have killed some cat somewhere, but Einstein and I value curiosity more than most other forms of intelligence.
“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” Albert Einstein
That said, we non-smokers tend to criticize and judge those who smoke cigarettes but did you know that the nicotine in a cigarette is a medicine and served to protect smokers from the symptoms of COVID? It did so by preventing the dangerous spike protein from binding to cells in such a way as to cause problems. The spike protein which allows the dangerous COVID virus to enter your cells requires access to a nicotine related receptor. (nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) If you don’t smoke cigarettes, you don’t have enough nicotine in your blood to kick off the spike protein from that receptor.
Think of a spike protein as a drawbridge allowing visitors to enter your castle over your protective moat. If you are a smoker and had enough nicotine in your blood, the drawbridge is pulled up and no soldiers can invade your castle.
The irony is potent, Smoking helped people not suffer with COVID.
Of course, I don’t recommend smoking cigarettes or anything else due to the clearly established damage from inhalation of smoke and tar and other toxins from burning cigarettes but the nicotine patch (21mg) for a meager 6 days is highly beneficial for people suffering with long COVID and is not addictive is stopped at day 7.

Is the post-COVID-19 syndrome a severe impairment of acetylcholine-orchestrated neuromodulation that responds to nicotine administration?
Bioelectronic Medicine volume 9, Article number: 2 (2023)
Following a SARS-CoV-2 infection, many individuals suffer from post-COVID-19 syndrome. It makes them unable to proceed with common everyday activities due to weakness, memory lapses, pain, dyspnea and other unspecific physical complaints. Several investigators could demonstrate that the SARS-CoV-2 related spike glycoprotein (SGP) attaches not only to ACE-2 receptors but also shows DNA sections highly affine to nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs). The nAChR is the principal structure of cholinergic neuromodulation and is responsible for coordinated neuronal network interaction. Non-intrinsic viral nAChR attachment compromises integrative interneuronal communication substantially. This explains the cognitive, neuromuscular and mood impairment, as well as the vegetative symptoms, characterizing post-COVID-19 syndrome. The agonist ligand nicotine shows an up to 30-fold higher affinity to nACHRs than acetylcholine (ACh). We therefore hypothesize that this molecule could displace the virus from nAChR attachment and pave the way for unimpaired cholinergic signal transmission. Treating several individuals suffering from post-COVID-19 syndrome with a nicotine patch application, we witnessed improvements ranging from immediate and substantial to complete remission in a matter of days.
