A friend of mine has a serious illness Cystic Fibrosis and decided to take some shrooms, he/she believes this made him/her feel better could the shrooms have done this or was it just coincidence. If this is true, what other strains may also help. Thanks

Symptoms of CF

Meconium Ileus (approximately 15% of the cases) This is when a baby is born with a meconium blockage of the bowel. Normally, there is a black, tarry stool-like substance that comes out soon after birth, within the first few days. In CF, sometimes this does not come out, due to the intestinal secretions causing a blockage. This is very serious and requires surgery to eliminate this problem within a few hours, or the baby will not survive.
Bright Bowel or Echogenic Bowel: this is when they can see a Meconium Ileus in development in the uterus. This means that the fetus may be born with CF. There are other conditions that may present this way.
Large, greasy, bulky, foul-smelling stools that float in water (Steatorrhea), Flatulence (farting) or foul-smelling flatulence: due to pancreatic insufficiency, lack of pancreatic enzymes to properly digest food.
"Failure to Thrive": This is just a term used to describe conditions where a child doesn't gain weight or grow in height normally, despite normal or big appetite. It may be caused by other things than CF, but CF is certainly one thing to consider when this is seen.
Repeated respiratory infections, both of the lungs and nose/sinuses
Sinusitis, Rhinitis
Pneumonia, Bronchitis, Bronchiolitis, Bronchiectasis, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
Abundant respiratory secretions, due to the inability to clear them, because they are thick, and often infected
Frequent, chronic cough, due to frequent respiratory infections, can be a dry cough, but more often it will be productive
Wheezing, especially if you have an asthmatic component to your CF.
Nasal congestion, due to chronic sinusitis and/or polyps
Infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa or Burkholderia cepacia, among others
Salty sweat, one of the basic defects in CF
Nasal Polyps requiring surgery.
Bad Breath (actually, foul-smelling breath), that no amount of teeth brushing or breath fresheners can get rid of, usually due to respiratory (lung and/or sinus) infections with certain bacteria, such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, but may also be due to improper digestion (Added Apr. 9, 2000)
Dehydrates easily
Lack of weight gain, due to malabsorption, and fighting infection
Stomach aches, abdominal distension: may be due to various reasons
Vitamin or mineral deficiency, due to malabsorption
Vitamin K Deficiency
Zinc Deficiency and skin rash
Acrodermatitis enteropathica-like eruption as the presenting sign of cystic fibrosis - case report and review of the literature (Added Sept. 24, 2002)
GERD (Gastro-espohageal Reflux Disease)
Hyperacidic stomach, heartburn, stomach pains.
Diabetes
Arthritic pains, often called CF arthritis. The mechanisms of this are not well understood yet.
Gallstones, sometimes requiring surgery.
Cirrhosis, or PBC: Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, sometimes leading to the need for a liver transplant.
It is the initial diagnostic finding in 1.5% of patients, suggesting that all patients with unexplained cirrhosis should have a sweat test as part of their diagnostic evaluation. (Added Oct. 8, 2002)
Portal Hypertension
Sterility, especially males
Osteoporosis, comes later in life, due to insufficient intake of Calcium, among other factors that affect bone strength
Clubbing, which is a particular type of swelling of the tips fingers
Rectal prolapse, fairly rare, usually manually reducible, sometimes needs surgery
Rectal Prolapse and surgery (Added Oct. 22, 2002)
Metabolic alkalosis with hypoelectrolytemia
Metabolic alkalosis with hypoelectrolytemia in infants with cystic fibrosis (Added June 18, 2002)
DIOS: Distal Intestinal Obstruction Syndrome happens sometimes in CF (Added Apr. 2, 2003)
Pneumothorax: Collapse of the lung, usually seen in later stages of the disease (Added Apr. 2, 2003)
Hemoptysis: Coughing up of blood, that comes from the lungs, usually seen in later stages of the disease (Added Apr. 2, 2003)
Barrel Chest: Increased front to back diameter of chest, due to breathing difficulty (Added Apr. 2, 2003)
Pancreatitis: Does not happen very often in people with CF (Added Apr. 2, 2003)

sorry it was so long but hopfully you should get a better understanding of the desise. What I meant in he/she feeling better, they said they could breath better they felt so much more happy as you can uderstand with all this going on, you wouldn't be on top of the world. So it was very nice to see them enjoying them selves. he/she said it always feels like there is a weight on there lungs and after taking the shroomes, when they had kicked in it wasn't there anymore. They are also always coughing and they weren't coughing much at all.

holy crap thats a whole lot of fucking symptoms. i do however, believe it is very possibly that shrooms helped your friend get better. this all depends on your belief of chakras. obviously, however, something has worked. and i seriously doubt it is some physiological reaction his physical body had to the mushrooms (that might have been really badly explained, lol, sorry). ask him what happened in his experience?

gotta love dem shrooms :-)

I know this isn't really related but shrooms cured my chronic anxiety for a while, i level 4 tripped earlier that day, came down for an hour or 2 smoked a few cones (bowls to you americans out there) tripped hard again, started freaking out with uncontrollable bad thoughts (similar to what i get in a panic attack) calmed my self down and it was gone... too bad it came back a few weeks later.

Basically shrooms change the way you think... sometimes permanatly and this has a big affect on your physical self and well as mental.

But it could easly go both ways.

when people use mushrooms to cure themselves, they tend to let the mushrooms do all the work. The mushrooms can help, but only if you put in some effort too. At least, that was the case with me, but I read it applies to others too ... I think it was that book "Hallucinogens." Actually, I'm pretty positive. Great book too. But that's not the point, the point is, you can't just eat something and expect all your problems to go away. You have to put in effort too.

The mushrooms did something that healed your anxiety. They may have shown you something, perhaps a way to beat that anxiety. Try remembering what happened that day, what you learned, or how you felt.

Could you explain to me what effort you put into curing yourself, and of what if you dont mind telling.

To tell you the truth i don't know what happened that day except for the bad thought which almost caused a certain freakout... same bad thought loop i usually get.

Also i had no intention on curing my self when this happened, however i tried a second time and tried to let it do all the work and nothing happened.
