LSD Therapy - Historyhttp://www.atlanteanconspiracy.com/2008/09/santa-claus-magic-mushroom.html
Have you ever wondered why on Christmas we cut down/carry evergreen trees inside our houses, decorate them with fancy ornaments, and place presents underneath them? Under this tree is where those who are deemed good find their reward in the form of a present. A big red and white rounded mushroom grows under the very tree we are to look under on Christmas morning to find our gift: http://www.atlanteanconspiracy.com/20...

All I know is that there was this Dutch controversial psychiatrist Bastiaans who did LSD experiments with his patients.
Jan Bastiaans born in the Dutch city Rotterdam on May 27, 1917 was neurologist and a contoversial professor of psychiatry. In 1957 he obtained his doctorate with a thesis entitled: Psychosomatic effects of oppression and resistance.

Could LSD Therapy indeed work in the sense that it helps to re-live but also re-work traumatic experiences in order to diminish it's remembrance impact on daily live? On first glance I have my serious doubts abou that since LSD seems to be a highly delusional drug, creating images which are not there but possibly connected to temporary subconscious 'hidden' moods. Like alcohol, for instance, make some unusual happy while others get unusual violent. Drugs in general has different outcomes on different persons and personalities. It's certainly not 'one size fits all', especially in psychiatry.
