How the hell has the Western world only just started to pay attention to this truly awesome medicinal combination?
Recently we reported the amazing story of an Australian woman who cured her stage 4 terminal lung cancer with cannabis oil. The doctors had said nothing could save her life, and didn´t offer any hope at all. Chemotherapy would only buy her a few extra months, which they predicted would end within six months of the devastating diagnosis. But cannabis caused the aggressive tumors to disappear, and she´s living proof that chemo isn´t always the best option (and it certainly shouldn´t be the last). Hers is just one of thousands of inspirational stories about how cannabis has miraculous properties, and science is proving it kills cancer time and time again.
But what about the emotional trauma of a terminal illness? How can a person deal with the shock, fear, grief and hopelessness of a terminal illness? The terror of saying goodbye to your loved ones, the worry of how they will cope without you, fear of the unknown after death (or fear of worms eating at your eye sockets if you´re an atheist)? How can cancer patients possibly stay strong enough to keep fighting when internally, they are in pieces?
For that, Mother nature gave us psilocybin. This natural compound is the active ingredient of magic mushrooms, and is found in around 700 species. Psilocybin has hallucinogenic, entheogenic (“God-Like”) properties: the psychedelic traveller is transported to internal worlds of heaven or hell, which often manifest on a physical level. It can be a terrifying or awe-inspiring experience, and as the lady in this video testifies, it can be both all in one trip.
Sixty four year-old Estelyn Walcoff has been suffering from a rare and incurable type of lymphoma for five years. She decided to take part in a scientific study on the psychotropic healing powers of psilocybin on emotional trauma. This was carried out under strict scientific testing (but with a cozy living room and built-up trust between staff and volunteers) by researchers at NYU, giving volunteers two sessions of therapy after intensive psychotherapy beforehand. After taking the psilocybin (in pill form) Estelyn experienced “great anxiety” (which she later realized was a “level of my mind”), and she directly connected with and experienced the “suffering of the people on Earth, and of the Earth itself.” She had a profound spiritual experience which has to be heard to be believed, and as a therapist Estelyn says she hopes that in future magic mushroom therapy will be on offer for all her clients.
“I wish I could put it into words”, she says of her brief meeting the immense source of all that is. “Oh my Gosh, I can´t believe I wouldn´t have known it,” she says. “The strength of it. The power of it. It would make for a much happier world.”
This is a truly amazing and inspirational story.The evidence for psilocybin and cannabis as treatment for cancer´s physical, mental, and emotional devastation is growing by the day. Please share if you know anyone who this video could help.
