Andrew Weil M.D. @ Psychedelic Science in the 21st Century

6 06 2010

This was a very thought-provoking and lively talk given by the founder of the field of integrative medicine, Dr. Andrew Weil. Since he’s been out of the psychedelic loop for a while he made some presumptuous statements about researchers not looking enough at the physiological healing psychedelics can engender (citing his experience that LSD cured his cat allergies). Perhaps he’s not aware of the work being done with cluster-headaches, opiate withdrawl & CRPS, or the challenges of designing research into the dynamics of psycho-somatism. Nonetheless, he is an esteemed authority and in this talk he offers much food for thought for healers & scientists alike.
