I'm copying a public post below from an interesting Assistant Professor of Philosophy and Data Science at UNCC (not a medical doctor or psychologist).

Everything he is discussing is TENTATIVE but very interesting. I'm sending this out now because there is so little in the popular press about what can actually be done to help people with brain fog and other Long COVID symptoms. The research is still very early, and of course medical professionals should be consulted.

  1. The article link from Nature Magazine describes brain damage caused by SARS-CoV-2 related to cell death and especially to synapse loss, leading to cognitive impairment.

  2. The study in Bioelectric Medicine is extremely small, yet shows the potential of nicotine patches in the treatment of Long COVID symptoms including brain fog. (Another paper from the same publication also goes into why nicotine might help with Long COVID: https://bioelecmed.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s42234-023-00104-7 )

  3. He then points to a study on the NIH PubMed site reporting the encouragement of synapse growth from psilocybin.

  4. A comment in the discussion thread also links to a British Medical Journal article on Metformin improving Long COVID symptoms ( https://www.bmj.com/content/381/bmj.p1306 )

There's further speculation in the discussion thread that other psychoactive substances might be helpful. There are perhaps AI bots in the discussion thread discussing psilocybin microdosing, so be aware of that and maybe not get excited that so many "people" are discussing it.

…HUH. Long-COVID destroys synapses, and is a major contributor to the brainfog. <https://www.nature.com/articles/s41380-022-01786-2>

This goes some way to shining a light on the promising results they've been seeing in testing nicotine patches as treatment for long covid: nicotine effects synapse formation and receptivity (tests using patches because they don't habit-form and aren't, y'know, SMOKE [<https://bioelecmed.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s42234-023-00104-7>]).

But what's super interesting to me is that another thing that's also been shown to encourage synapse growth? Is psilocybin.

From One Cell

A Journey Into Life's Origins and the Future of Medicine

Each of us began life as a single cell. From this humble origin, we embarked on a risky journey fraught with opportunities for disaster. Yet, amazingly, we reached our destination intact, emerging as dazzlingly complex, exquisitely engineered assemblages of trillions of cells. This metamorphosis constitutes one of nature’s most spectacular yet commonplace magic tricks.

: Young children (up until the age of about 7 - 11) can regenerate their fingertips.

This is from "We Are Electric" by Sally Adee, which is all about the body's bioelectric code. Apparently electrical fields and electrical charges are the software to the hardware that is our DNA.

The fingertip regeneration was discovered by researchers investigating how salamanders regenerate limbs. Of course it's not something you can easily test, but there are enough people who grew up without easy access to medical care that this is a known fact.

TITLE: COVID News

Thank you Dr. Lepkowsky

-------- Forwarded Message --------

Disclaimer: The data in this column come from either mainstream news
media sources or scientific research published in peer-reviewed
journals (each category can be determined by following the links in
the reference section). This column's author acknowledges the cultural
bias of the world scientific community in its belief that the
scientific method is the most viable available alternative for
assessing COVID-19 and its effects in an objective manner through a
structured process of observable and repeatable hypothesis testing.

Summary: Hospitalizations from COVID-19 rose for an eighth straight
week to 18,871 people/week see "COVID Hospitalizations Rise for Eighth
Week in a Row" under Virology & Epidemiology).

Moderna says its upcoming COVID-19 vaccine should work against the
BA.2.86 variant that has caused worry about a possible surge in cases
(see "New Moderna Vaccine to Work Against Recent COVID Variant" under
Vaccomes, Treatment & Testing).

COVID vaccines will have a new formulation this year, according to a
decision announced today by the US Food and Drug Administration that
will focus efforts on circulating variants. The move pushes last
year's bivalent vaccines out of circulation because they will no
longer be authorized for use in the United States (see "New COVID
Vaccines Force Bivalents Out" under Policy).

The CDC is not specifically saying whether long COVID patients should
get the new COVID boosters, flu shots, or RSV vaccines, and the Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) referred similar questions to the CDC
(see "Should Long COVID Patients Get the Flu, RSV, and New Booster
Shots?" under Policy).

Research continues to show that early intervention with antibiotics
reduces the risk of fatality from COID-19 (see "Early Empiric
Antibiotic Use in Patients Hospitalized With COVID-19" under Vaccines,
Treatment & Testing).

In ICU-patients ≥70 years old, COVID-19 is associated with greater
mortality rates than bacterial or viral pneumonia (see "Increased
Mortality in ICU Patients ≥70 Years Old With COVID-19 Compared to
Patients With Other Pneumonias" under COVID Complications).

After the US Food and Drug Administration authorized new monovalent
COVID vaccines, the CDC recommended the new booster vaccinations for
everyone (see "Universal Monovalent COVID Vaccines Backed by CDC"
under Policy).

About 103 million Americans had COVID-19, and about a third of those
led to long COVID. New data indicate that some cases of long COVID-19
might be going unidentified because the patient's initial infection
wasn't detected (see "Some People With Long COVID Tested Negative for
COVID-19" under COVID Complications).

Although SARS-CoV-2 infection among young children typically results
in mild infection, it can result in serious illness, including
multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, long-term sequalae, and
death. mRNA COVID-19 vaccination provides protection against
symptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection for at least 4 months after
vaccination among children aged 3–5 years (see "Safety Monitoring of
mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine Third Doses Among Children Aged 6 Months–5
Years" under Vaccines, Treatment & Testing).

A new meta-analysis has shown that SGLT2 inhibitors do not lead to
lower 28-day all-cause mortality compared with usual care or placebo
in patients hospitalized with COVID-19 (see "SGLT2-inhibitors: No
Benefit in Hospitalized COVID-19" under Vaccines, Treatment &
Testing).

The COVID-19 booster vaccine typically causes transient, clinically
insignificant elevations in glucose levels in people with type 1
diabetes (see "COVID Booster May Transiently Raise Glucose Levels in
T1D" under Vaccines, Treatment & Testing).

"Cost May Lead Many to Skip COVID Testing: Why That's a Problem" (see
under Media News).

The May 11, 2023 termination of the PHE has made it increasingly
difficult to accurately track COVID-19 new cases or fatalities.
However, new variants of concern continue to emerge, with consequent
infections and deaths.

Since the termination of the PHE, data on vaccination rates are no
longer being tracked. The last known US COVID-19 vaccination rates
(May 10, 2023) are as follows: full
vaccination (two initial doses) 69.3%; at least one updated booster
dose: 17% (see "Track Covid-19 in the U.S." under
Vaccines, Treatment & Testing). "Our World in Data" stopped trying to
track US booster rates on August 30, 2022 and shows a flat line since
then.

Disclaimer: The data in this column come from either mainstream news
media sources or scientific research published in peer-reviewed
journals (each category can be determined by following the links in
the reference section). This column's author acknowledges the cultural
bias of the world scientific community in its belief that the
scientific method is the most viable available alternative for
assessing COVID-19 and its effects in an objective manner through a
structured process of observable and repeatable hypothesis testing.

Summary: The updated vaccine that better protects against currently
circulating strains of the virus that causes COVID-19 may be available
as soon as next week (see "New COVID Shots Could Be Available Next
Week" under Vaccines, Treatment & Testing).

The increase in cases of COVID-19 in the northern hemisphere is
worrying healthcare authorities around the world, who are aware that
these countries usually experience a peak in respiratory infections
during the winter months (see "WHO 'Concerned' About COVID Increase in
Northern Hemisphere" under Virology & Epidemiology).

COVID-19 hospitalizations have been on the rise for weeks as summer
nears its end. COVID-19 hospitalizations rose by 19% last week and
COVID deaths by 21%, according to figures from the CDC. More than half
the states, 26, had a "substantial increase" in hospital admissions
(see "COVID-19 Hospitalizations and Deaths on the Rise" and "5
Questions for COVID Experts: How Concerned Should We Be?" under
Virology & Epidemiology).

COVID metrics have risen steadily since June after reaching the lowest
point since the pandemic started. However, just 7% of U.S. adults are
"very worried" about getting COVID-19 (see "COVID Metrics Tick Up, but
Americans Aren't Worried: Poll" under Media News).

The CDC and the World Health Organization have dubbed the BA 2.86
variant of COVID-19 as a variant to watch (see "Q&A: What to Know
About the New BA 2.86 COVID Variant" under Virology & Epidemiology).
However, BA.2.86 does not have a heightened ability to evade the
protection of COVID vaccines or immunity from prior infection (see
"Highly Mutated COVID Strain Can't Evade Immunity as Feared" under
Virology & Epidemiology).

Close and prolonged contact with someone with COVID-19 can more than
quadruple the risk of getting the virus (see "This Is When You're Most
at Risk for 'Leaky' COVID Immunity" under Virology & Epidemiology).

It's estimated that 1 out of 8 people with COVID develop long COVID.
Of those persons, 44% also experience headaches. Research has found
that many of those headaches are migraines — and many patients who are
afflicted say they had never had a migraine before (see "Long COVID
and New Migraines: What's the Link?" under COVID Complications).

Severe COVID infections may lead to lasting damage to the immune
system (see "Severe COVID May Cause Long-Term Cellular Changes: Study"
under COVID Complications).

COVID-19 may negatively affect the wound healing process while
increasing the mortality rate amongst patients with multiple or severe
comorbidities undergoing limb salvage procedure (see "Retrospective
Review of Complications and Outcomes in COVID-19–Positive Patients
With Comorbidities Undergoing Limb Salvage Procedures in a Tertiary
Care Wound Center" under COVID Complications).

Among patients with ARF due to COVID-19 pneumonia who fail HFNC, delay
of intubation beyond 24 h is associated with increased mortality (see
"Delayed Intubation Associated With In-hospital Mortality in Patients
With COVID-19" under Vaccines, treatment & Testing).

Crippling symptoms, lost careers, and eroded incomes: This is the
harsh reality for doctors suffering with long COVID, according to the
first major survey of physicians with the condition (see "One in Five
Doctors With Long COVID Can No Longer Work: Survey" under COVID
Complications).

EU regulators have recommended authorizing an updated COVID-19 vaccine
from Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech which targets the dominant
XBB.1.5 variant of Omicron, putting it on track to become the third
adapted shot by the two companies to be approved in the bloc (see "EU
Regulators Back Pfizer's Updated Vaccine for Dominant Omicron
Subvariant" under Policy).

The May 11, 2023 termination of the PHE has made it increasingly
difficult to accurately track COVID-19 new cases or fatalities.
However, new variants of concern continue to emerge, with consequent
infections and deaths.

Since the termination of the PHE, data on vaccination rates are no

Okay all -- It's early days for figuring out how to help people with
Long COVID.

That said, a bit of promising research is starting to surface.

I'm taking the unusual step of emailing EVERYONE because at this point
many of you with anxiety and depression symptoms may have some Long
COVID (brain fog, sleep issues, the depression or anxiety itself!).

A good write-up about what Long COVID is can be found here. Yes, you
can had a trivial case of COVID-19 and still get Long COVID symptoms for
days, weeks, months, or years. Some cases of it are somewhat "mild":
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/long-term-effects/index.html

*The bottom-line of the video is right at the end. For long COVID:
-- Get outside one hour per day.
-- May cover up if sensitive to sun (near UV rays will get through
clothing anyway)
-- Best if in nature (surrounded by green)
-- Do not look directly at sun (duh)
-- May wear a hat (near UV rays will get through clothing anyway)
-- Sitting in a sunny window no longer good enough (most glass now has
to be certified to block the rays we want)

He also promises to talk about how intermittent fasting may help in a
future video.

Roger Seheult, MD is the co-founder and lead professor at
https://www.medcram.com/
He is Board Certified in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary Disease, Critical
Care, and Sleep Medicine and an Associate Professor at the University of
California, Riverside School of Medicine. He is also an ER doctor.

Before the pandemic, MedCram mainly seemed to be training for doctors to
pass exams. Since the start of COVID, Dr. Seheult has done occasional
more accessible videos for the general public on COVID-related topics.

To actually understand why something this simple may help -- and listen
to some research, please watch:

Autistic people often don't have great experiences with doctors. I suspect that in part it's because of doctors failing to humanise their patients.

"This book provides the first full history of phrenitis. In doing so, it surveys ancient ideas about the interactions between body and soul, both in health and in disease. It also addresses ancient ideas about bodily health, mental soundness and moral 'goodness', and their heritage in contemporary psychiatric ideas."
