Episode 25: Seizures and Microdosing Psilocybin with Haley

In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Haley. After trying, unsuccessfully, invasive brain surgeries and several pharmaceuticals to treat her complex partial seizures, Haley then turned to microdosing psilocybin and got great results. Please enjoy this episode, with Haley.

We discussed:

Complex partial seizures, blanking out, 1-2/week

Laughing spells

With developed brain came more developed seizures

Prescribed all kinds of pills, nothing worked

Three brain surgeries, removed right side of lobes

Invasive surgeries and toxic pharmaceuticals; temporal lobe; right hippocampus 

Tumor on hypothalamus 

Late 30s, realized there was a 2-3 year period, seizure free — early 20s, completely seizure free, mushroom trips. 

Break up with true love; free spirits; lot of trips together; started having seizures

Returning from a seizure feels like a reset, clean slate, enlightened

Felt special because of these

Created her own plan of microdosing to control her seizures

Still have little, giggly partial seizures, 2-3 per day; pleasant

Regular schedule of microdosing during those times

Regimen: 2-3 days on, 1-2 days off for 2-3 weeks

More creative; violin

Notices new pathways, thinking in the brain; is more organized, clean

Quality of life really improved

Let’s find out which local leaders are open to decriminalizing these wonderful plant medicines!

Is it possible to get in contact with Haley? I have a very similar story to her except without the “happier” ending. I am fighting 6-12 focal seizures a day and 1 tonic clonic a month. I recently read about microdosing and am very interested; I am sick of these invasive treatments and medications that do not work and just add side effects. I am living in hell and just want some help…

I feel for you, Jay Fetterly. My story is the same in a lot of ways too. I would love more info. Is she still needing to take medication? I sure hope she is doing well 🙂 any information is appreciated.
