Psilocybin for alcoholism

Dr. Weeks’ Comments: As the founder of the American Apitherapy Society in 1985 and an international expert in the therapeutic benefits of honey bee products, I am very familiar with the use of powerful natural substances which have a negative reputation – like bee venom. I have told doctors for decades that poison or toxicity is a matter of dosage and so if one attenuates the dosage to minimize any negative effects, why not create a remedy out of potent biological substances like bee venom rather than trying to instill potency into something benign like lawn clippings.  Enter Psilocybin (see below) which has inherited the legacy of LSD which my late friend and mentor Dr. Abram Hoffer pioneered in the 50’s. Put away your skepticism and read the science for treatment of alcoholism – a disease which otherwise is exceedingly resistant to treatment.
