Drugs, Inc.: Magic Mushroom Medicine
Psychedelic mushrooms are an unlikely friend in the battle against incredibly painful cluster headaches.
As a cluster headache patient for nearly 30 years, I use a similar treatment and for the first time I FINALLY have my life back. I highly recommend that cluster sufferers research their options, discuss it with their neuro or gp to make a decision that is right for them. Cluster Busters dot com is a good place to start to get valuable information.
I need to find out how I can watch the whole program. I suffer from clusters. A family member sent me this clip. Does anyone know how I can view the whole episode?
i'd love to chat with the dan in the interview here, if anyone can put me in touch. this is the first i'm hearing of the mushroom treatment, and as i sit here with one of (too many) unbearably insane headaches, i want to give this treatment a try.
I quite enjoyed the first season of National Geographic's and Discovery Channel's "Drugs Inc." it was surprisingly balanced and contained a fairly large amount of real scientific facts.
Like almost all television stations based in the USA, Discovery Channel's (and National Geographic's) content, particularly where scientific facts are concerned, has to be viewed as severely compromised due to the prevalence of political interference in the broadcast industry in that country, this particular episode is a good example of that kind of interference.
I have no doubt that Discovery Channel went to a fair amount of effort to find this particular gentleman with his dislike of the psychedelic effects of mushrooms that commonly grow in cow fields across the entire planet but still managed to provide a story about proven, beneficial effects of this natural medicine.
I have to continue to praise Discovery for it's reasonably fair treatment and exposure of useful facts in the first season of this series, the second season sadly, appears to offer little in the way of educational facts about drugs as well as other intoxicants such as alcohol, marijuana and psilocybin mushrooms and more about the crime and reality show style interviews with various criminals willing to brag about their exploits.
