Good news “shroomers”, your brains are getting bigger! The next time your friends or family lambast your magic mushroom habit you can tell them, “I am building new brain cells while I chase these unicorns!” According to Juan R. Sanchez-Ramos, M.D., Ph.D., his thesis research has discovered using large doses of magic mushrooms (psilocybin) allows the (hippocampus and cerebellum for this study) brain to create new brain cells! Dr. Ramos is actively seeking alternatives from mainstream medicine to cure Neurodegenerative diseases, Huntington’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease.
What amazing news for Alzheimer patients who suffer with a sloughing of brain cells causing a disruption and permanent loss of memory. This is also promising for people who suffer with depression because of the low serotonin levels. The magic mushrooms rebuild the neurotransmitters responsible for serotonin! This just gets better and better. Because at the root of many tragic massacres today are psychotropic (Prozac, Paxil, etc.) drugs with side effects like suicide, extreme depression and violence. It appears whenever a natural remedy is applied to alleviate a problem, it does not have these hazardous side effects.
Most if not all believe the magic mushroom experience yields vast improvement in: understanding, creative thinking and problem solving. I recently spoke with a friend of mine in the Los Angeles area who is a professional musician. He ingested magic mushrooms and went home and he said, “I played the piano like Amadeus all night long.” It is clear some habits of the so-called primitive people of the world, need to be re-evaluated for the betterment of mankind.
Dr. Ramos was keenly interested in the “classical conditioning” perspective of the brain. This is basically Pavlov’s experimentation proving stimulus can be activated through repetitive sequences. For example, a bell is rung right before feeding a dog. After conditioning the dog to this routine, if the bell was rung,the dog would begin to drool. This is critical to those patients suffering with Parkinson’s Disease because these key neurons are destroyed.
The bottom line is there are promising cures for debilitating diseases not on the horizon; but, growing in a mound of cow dung right now. We have learned magic mushrooms are the “Miracle Grow” of neurotransmitters of the brain and they make the healing process groovy. We know big pharmaceutical companies will block this all the way to Capital Hill because they know it is tremendously difficult to regulate cow dung.
