Any containing psilocybin or psilocyn. Not Aminata's, they are dangerous and do not contain the correct stuff.
Psilo is similar in molecular structure to serotonin. It acts by a similar mechanism to LSD. LSD is also useful against CH. LSD is an ergot alkaloid, and extract from a fungis/mould called ergot. Two other ergot alkaloids are methysergide (Sansert) and ergotamine. Both of these are prescription drugs for vascular headaches.
We believe that CH are linked to an imbalance of serotonin production. The ingestion of psilo may act in a way that shocks the brain, effectively pressing the reset switch, and returning the chemical balance. This is pure speculation.
Over the last 3 years around 2 dozen people that attend this message board have tried this treatment. There have been 2 failures. This is a better success rate than any prescription medication. Only a single sub hallucinogenic dose is required to break the CH cycle and send people into a lengthy remission.
