During my 31 years of CH, I have at times tried to tie my clusters to stress. More specifically, the let down period after stress. No, I don't mean hours or days later. More like weeks later. In some cases there has been this connection. However, as I look back, I find it it hard to say that my stressful periods came every 8 months for 20 years (which is what my CH did). There's a connection I just can't make.
I beleive CH is purely a physical condition. Something is whacko, chemically, structurally. What causes this chemical or structural abnormality to start it's series of siezures is still up for grabs. I don't know.
As for LSD and shrooms. I believe they may work, not due to their effect on the mind but rather due to their physical effect on the brain. To be more specific, their effect on specific 5HT receptors. Erogomine and sansert become psychadellics at higher doses also because of their effect on these neural transmitters.
I believe if you find out what is making the hypothalamus seize, you will have the cause of CH and therein lies the cure.
God I love my 5HT!!!
