An emerging body of scientific evidence suggests that recreational drugs like magic mushrooms could treat mental illness. And we have Amanda Feilding, a hippie aristocrat turned drug reformer, to thank for it.
The scientists hope their long-awaited study on LSD in humans will open the floodgates to further research into psychedelics.
Tidligt i 1970'erne "trepanerede" Amanda sig selv, da hun ikke kunne finde en læge, der ville gøre det for hende, og hun er siden blevet noget af en ekspert på området.
Former chief drugs adviser, Professor David Nutt has answered your sweaty, toilet-bowl-hugging prayers and invented a non-toxic inebriant drug that mimics the effects of alcohol: without the hangover.
Amanda Feilding claims trepanation might make us happier, healthier, and maybe help people at risk for Alzheimer's. She's not only an expert, she conducted the operation on herself to see what was what.
