Hello, just a comment on something that appears to have been talked to death...

I know some people who have done the LSD reasearch in England from the 1960's and it was indeed beneficial according to these researchers but most of it got suppressed after Timothy Leary did his stuff. I also know former patients who received LSD therapy in the US in the late 1960's and some had a really eye-opening experience that set them on the path to enlightenment and future good functioning and some had a really horrifying experience. I also have been reading about the Ibogaine treatments currently being done and it appears that, there too, are some outstanding experiences that result in complete sobriety and new insights for some and absolutely terrifying experiences for others. I even have to admit that my pet treatment, EMDR, has made some people feel worse even though 95% feel much better.

I think that any treatment, whether FDA-approved, illegal, herbal, or something out of your front lawn, will work great for some, not great for others. I think it is always best to stick with things that are well-researched and documented to work, but how can anyone fault someone who has "been there, done that" and moves on to experimental or fringe treatment? I just hope that if that is the case, that as much care as possible will be taken to insure that help is available if something goes wrong. And if you are doing both traditional and nontraditional drugs, please tell your health care person so they can be prepared if there is an adverse reaction or a drug-drug interaction.
