Oakland’s city council unanimously decriminalized 🍄magic mushrooms🍄 and other natural entheogenic or psychoactive plants and fungi including cactuses, ayahuasca, and iboga.
Imperial College London Professor Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris in the Department of Medicine believes “magic mushrooms” could replace antidepressants.
“I would imagine if you had some bookmakers doing the odds, there would be strong odds on that [psychedelic therapy] will be licensed sometime in the next five to 10 years – maybe sooner” Robin-Carthart-Harris told the Independent a British online newspaper.
From Futurism an independently owned media company based out of New York City:
Robin-Carhart-Harris is currently leading a Centre for Psychedelic Research trial to compare the ability of psilocybin, or “magic,” mushrooms and leading antidepressants to treat depression.
He told The Independent that so far, participants are reporting that the psilocybin leaves them feeling like they’ve experienced an emotional “release,” while patients often criticize antidepressants for making them feel like their emotions are “blunted.”
Given the positive feedback from study participants and psilocybin mushrooms’ extremely low risk for overdose or addiction, it’s not hard to see why Carhart-Harris is optimistic that doctors will soon be able to use psychedelics to treat patients.
In 2014 I interviewed Roman Hanis who shared his health journey dealing with Crohn’s after Western and Eastern medicine were not sufficient and Doctors were recommending surgery. From Israel to New York to Peru he found entheogenic plants and cured himself.
In 2016 I interviewed Marcus from Europe who was able to safely stop all pharmaceutical medications after being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, treating himself with entheogenic plants. 😮
Both of these interviews were released in 2017 as part of The Crohn’s And Colitis Summit. 92% of our listeners loved my interviewing style. That’s quite a feat considering I was still very sick then detoxing from toxic metals, mold and more. 😥
In 2016 my friend Jack told me that Ayauasca cured his Autoimmune disorder called Pemphigoid in just two days, 👍after 9 years of various conventional and alternative treatments where only corticosteroid steroids were most helpful and they also were causing damage to his bones.
Also in 2016 I was on a Skype call with a Shamen in Peru who told me I am a shaman. I’m not so sure about that. Nor the recent claims I’m a Doctor. Nope, sorry to disappoint
A recent 2019 study published in The American Journal Of Alcohol And Drug Abuse, DMT, also an entheogen was shown to improve depression and anxiety when administered in a group setting as shown by the Johns Hopkins University survey 80% of the participants.
In the One Great Gut Collection I interview Erica Sandstedt, a shaman, and Caitlin Thompson who with a background in neurobiology defeated a difficult case of IBS, lyme, SIBO, microbiome dysbiosis, emotional trauma and depression through various Integrative methods including entheogens. Today she is an IAKP certified Kambo practitioner – 🐸
