There has been a lot of attention lately about the use of mushrooms to treat headaches. I am here to tell you that it works and has been working for me since I was 17 years old. I am 36 now.
At the age of 14 I was diagnosed by a doctor as having cluster headaches. I think that after talking to a few clusterheads that this may have been an erroneous diagnosis. My headaches would hit every 2 weeks or so and would last a few hours and ease and then come back again. This cycle would continue for 2 or 3 days and then stop. I also found that certain foods would trigger these attacks.
When my headaches would hit I had to retreat to near total darkness because I was very sensitive to the light. I actually had a dent in my bedroom wall where I would bang my head because it hurt so bad.
When I was 17 my older sister was dating this guy that was a refugee from the 60's. He also suffered cyclical headaches but he had approached my mother with a "cure" that he had discovered in Mexico. My mother forbade him to help me but he said that it tore his heart out to see me in that pain and to be downstairs and hear me thumping the wall and knowing what I was going through.
He had been in Mexico in the seventies when he had an attack. His friends, being the spiritual group that they were, took him to the local medicine man. That is where he discovered the cure. He went about learning how to grow them for himself.
During one of my pain free days he asked me if I would be interested in trying something that might help and slipped me approx. 3 grams of cubensis mushrooms. The next time that the headaches hit I felt them coming on and remembered the bag of mushrooms. About 15 minutes later the pain that was building just went away.
I have been growing them since for personal use. I don't know if it is tolerence or what but I find now that I have to dose about once a month but I have been taking them for 19 years.
I hope that by telling this story that it helps a few of you who may be willing to try this method of treatment. I am living proof that it works.
When Doc Charlie first approached me about this I hesitated because I didn't want to be accused of spamming. I am a spore vendor and I try to help people to grow their own medicine.
