Dear editor,

I am alive today because of Christ and magic mushrooms.

In December of 2014 I was alone both times when my breathing stopped. I went to the doctor and was perscribed a steroid. 

There were only 2 or 3 doses left in the pack when my breathing stopped again for the 2nd time . I went to the doctor and was perscribed another pack of steroids. I was at my club Spocannabis on New Year’s Eve with 2 or 3 pills left in my pack and my breathing was about to stop again for the 3rd time. 

The steroids weren’t helping. I ate some shrooms while at my club. They sat me back. I took a pretty good size dose.  I took one of the biggest breaths I had ever taken 25 minutes after eating them. 

I woke up the next morning having an extreme difficulte time breathing. I ate my 2nd dose of shrooms and my symptoms were under control again. That’s when I realized they stop my tremors. My wife fed me every meal for the 6 months prior to Christ leading me to them - she is my gift from God. 

My memory is pretty much gone due to the Parkinson’s.  I was at the point where I had to ask you every 2 or 3 sentences what I was saying. I am now able to carry on a conversation again and eat by myself again. 

There are several more symptoms of  Parkinson’s I suffer with that have been positively impacted by shrooms aswell.

I started with a higher dose, then I titrated down to about a gram and a 1/2 every 4 hours. When I get up at 5:00 a.m. to releave myself, I eat another dose before I go back to sleep. 

If I don’t eat them on a continuing basis like I’ve explained, I am not able to fold the paper to go to the bathroom by myself.

My doctor did tests on me every month for the 1st year.

I have the chart notes and before & after videos to prove my claims.

My only hope is that my experience will help somebody else experiencing these same symptoms. 

My phone number is 509 994 5922
