Microdosing to recover from brain injury (David Meikle)

Postby Tom on Thu Mar 31, 2022 8:15 pm

Long-time forum member (and baguazhang practitioner par excellence) David Meikle recounts his healing from brain injury (concussive trauma from three car accidents) using microdoses of psilocybin mushrooms.

Video 1 - I introduce myself and briefly talk about brain injury and how I recovered by microdosing mushrooms.

Thanks for sharing :-)

Meeks, your smile sure is projecting happiness and infecting other people with it :-D

Glad to see you're back in the saddle, so to say.

Reading Tom's signature -
I once tried making goulash with beer
It was a 0,33 Becks for a small pot
Way too much
Ever tried eating meat that tastes bitter?
Can't recommend it at all - or maybe add just a little bit next time
Either way, wine has much broader cooking applications and is a better metaphor for blood / Qi than beer
Taste is made up out of setting, preference, biological cravings, biographical influences and memories, climate, eating alone or together, texture, agreeableness to one's stomach and cultural norms

Flesh and bitter just don't work together when cooking

Just a small rant :-) Moving from a destabilizing Fire purifying illuminating revealing shedding leaving behind letting go Phase, bitter -- to a stabilized Earth resulting stacking linking accepting substance gathering Phase, sweet - never easy
Enjoying the illusion is true freedom

That's such a deep and profound question. Reminiscent of "what is the sound of 1 hand clapping?" ;D

Is Mr Meikle the same as "meeks"? First off, don't mean to make light of your situation at all. Second, really sorry those crashes and TBIs happened to you. But genuine questions if you're willing to answer. Sorry I haven't watched all of the videos so maybe you did already ... some other (executive function?) part of your brain could recognize this part of your brain (having trouble with math, no longer able to write software) needed help. You sought out and found help. Then able to write software again. If you were having trouble with math, the other parts of seeking the solutions, understanding the protocol, how to obtain, trying it, etc., --- that part of your brain just somehow (luckily) worked fine or fine enough while the "repairs" happened over time? This is an incredible story of recovery.

I had a colleague who was a software tester fall off his skateboard with no helmet. After that, he couldn't do the same work. I'm really not sure how well his brain is working in this field now. I don't know him well enough to reach out and send him your video.
