Positive story on mushrooms

The story at the link explores a multitude of uses for the mushroom, I'm personally involved in the medicinal use of the strain Reishi, (Ree-she).
Someone very close to me has been enduring chemotherapy for 25 months for Pancreatic Cancer, and there was no change in the mass of the Tumor for 21 months. This mushroom extract was begun in February of 2013, and the tumor shrunk by 80%. The chemo cocktail was unchanged in that time.
It seems to me that big pharma and the medical community manage disease and treat symptoms, rather than seek a cure.

I take powdered Chaga daily.

Seems to keep my ailments in check.


Guy who grinds it claims to have saved a handful of
terminal cancer patients.

Of course, the so called authorities made him re-label
the stuff as "tea", to be boiled.
Although it is much more effective raw.

I've always had positive results from mushrooms.

But we are talking different funguy... I mean fungi.

Recent clinical trials suggest magic mushrooms may offer help with mental illness but they are just now looking for more research money to really look deeper into this.


Quote:Nutt said major hurdles had to be overcome to carry out the research. It took a year to get ethical approval and there was a six-month safety study, but the hardest part was getting through the red tape.

It took 30 months to get the drug, which had to be specially packaged into capsules for the trial by a company which was required to get a licence to do so. All the regulatory approvals took 32 months, Nutt said. “It cost £1,500 to dose each person, when in a sane world it might cost £30.”

The researchers said they did not know whether the effect of the drug was caused by chemical changes in the brain or whether the psychedelic experience, which people describe as spiritual or mystical, gives them a new perspective. Either way, they said psilocybin offered hope for those who had been depressed for an average of 18 years - the majority of the volunteers had been depressed most of their lives.

The study was part of a research collaboration between Imperial and the Beckley Foundation, a thinktank that focuses on drugs policy.

Amanda Feilding, founder of Beckley and co-director of the trial programme with Nutt, said: “The results from our research are helping is to understand how psychedelics change consciousness, and how this information can be used to find breakthrough treatments for many of humanity’s most intractable psychiatric disorders, such as depression, addiction and obsessive compulsive disorder.”

Back in the late 60's-early 70's, i wasn't depressed, but used psilocybin whenever I could get it, which was not very often.
