Can Mescaline, or Peyote, Cure Ulcerative Colitis?

The Autumn leaves are turning bright orange, and red.  Thanksgiving is approaching. The traditionally American time to focus on gratitude.

A friend mentioned the healing he experienced from Peyote, or Mescaline – profound healing around gratitude he mentioned. I have a daily gratitude practice, but never have never tried Mescaline, but I got curious about something.

There’s a science behind gratitude. Research by UC Davis psychologist Robert Emmons, author of Thanks!: How the New Science of Gratitude Can Make You Happier, shows that simply keeping a gratitude journal—regularly writing brief reflections on moments for which we’re thankful—can significantly increase well-being and life satisfaction.

I got curious, could Mescaline effect Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s Disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease?

Would my hunch be correct? Would my intuition find a prize, or fools gold? That’s when I stumbled upon Marcus from Sweden.


Peyote Buttons from

From the debilitating chronic disease Ulcerative Colitis diagnosis for life, to symptom-free for the past eight years.

This interview was recorded at 5am California time, 2pm Sweden time, you can tell I was a bit tired. I’m not a morning person.

I’d love to edit, clean-up, make it look a bit more professional, but it’s more important for you to hear what Marcus has to say.

Ulcerative Colitis, gone.

No more medicine

No supplements

No special diet

Peyote, is his medicine

What is Peyote?

It’s a small cactus with psychoactive properties, particularly mescaline.

The Aztecs would call peyote a Divine Messenger

Native North Americans are likely to have used peyote, often for spiritual purposes, for at least 5,500 years

Please note, peyote can be abused, there is at least one known death from consumption, and while it doesn’t seem to have addicted properties, physical dependence does not seem to be associated with the plant, some users may experience psychological dependence.

Peyote is listed by the United States DEA as a Schedule I controlled substance, and there are exemptions for usage under the guidelines of the Native American Church

This interview is now included as a bonus in the *free* The Crohn’s And Colitis Summit. For over a year I interviewed Functional, Integrative, naturopathic Medical Doctors and Gastroenterologists , natural pharmacists, and 15 “All-Star Healed Heroes”, including Marcus*, who are healed of Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, some for years and decades without symptoms or pharmaceuticals. These stories of hope are inspiring, and sometimes, during the darkest of days, hope is your greatest ally. I’m delighted to announce I can offer the summit for free for a limited time. Check it out today by visiting The Crohn’s And Colitis Summit.


















I hope you enjoy the summit as much as I did making it, plus with the 10,000 IBDers who have already attended you’re in good company. You can see read a few testimonial reviews on the Summit web-page and on our Facebook page. Here’s to your health, Joel
