Cautions and Disclaimer

I am not a medical doctor, nor do I play one on TV. I do have a research degree, which does put a “Dr.” in front of my name, and a “Ph.D” behind. And while I’m very proud of this, and I do a better than average job separating scientific fact from fantasy as a result, it doesn’t mean you should think of anything I say as valid, medical advice. Basically, a Ph.D. and $5 will get me a good soy hot chocolate at Starbucks, and not much more. DO consult a REAL medical doctor about anything you want to try, including this. If you’d like to try it, talk to your doctor to assure that it’s safe for you. Pay close attention to anything about this practice that your doctor feels you need to be cautious about, or avoid completely. They may not be able to evaluate whether this obscure, mental health treatment will work for you, but they know what can harm your body or put you at risk, and that’s the important part.
