Can psilocybin reduce death anxiety in end-stage cancer patients? by Judith Lewis
Almost as soon as Dr. Charles Grob secured approval to study the effects of psilocybin on Stage IV cancer patients, he faced another challenge, one nearly as formidable: recruiting 12 participants...
In this case, however, it has not been ignored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which holds Grob?s study to the same stringent requirements it applies to any study of any new drug. Participants in the study must have cancer of sufficient severity, but they must also be free of most other medical problems: high blood pressure, anemia, heart disease or liver dysfunction, brain tumors or metastases to the brain, kidney disease. In other words, says Grob?s research nurse, Marycie Hagerty, ?We?re basically looking for healthy dying people.?
I think that mushrooms could only help a person ease into death if they dident already have overwhelming regrets and wishes about life.... it would all depend on the mind of the person and how thier trip was.
It makes me remember about 9/11. One of the most frequent psychological scenarios found on people which were there was post traumatic stress. Well, MAPS studies already shown psilocybin is a good candidate to treat such conditions. You're right, gotta love the FDA
