Dear Friends of Clusterbusters

Clusterbusters will be presenting our latest research, a collaboration between Clusterbusters and researchers at Yale University at the American Headache Societies 56th annual Scientific Meeting.

The 56th Annual Scientific Meeting is designed for physicians, psychologists, scientists, researchers, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other health professionals involved in the care of patients with head, neck, and orofacial pain.


June 26th-29th, 2014 Los Angeles, CA

American Headache Society 56th Annual Scientific Meeting



Immediately following this meeting, Clusterbusters will attending the AMHA conference which is being held in the same venue.

Education and support for patients with Migraine and other Headache Disorders, family, friends, and others who care. Sponsored by the American Headache and Migraine Association. For more information or to register, see Ease Headache Migraine Second Annual Conference

AHMA Members Apply for Travel Scholarships Here

While the entire conference is informative and a great opportunity for all headache sufferers and family, we are happy to point out that one of the sessions during this conference will feature Dr. Peter Goadsby speaking on managing Cluster Headaches.

This dual conference event will allow Clusterbusters to meet with all the leading headache specialists to discuss treatments and help educate the medical community regarding the needs of cluster patients. We will be reaching out to those attending who still need to become informed of the efficacy and need for properly prescribing oxygen as well as the wide array of all standard and alternative treatment options.

Our attendance at AHMA's conference allows us to reach out to the patients and families living with cluster headaches and other related headache disorders. Better understanding of cluster headaches among the entire headache community will improve the diagnosis process and help everyone find a treatment plan that suits them.

To my knowledge, that species does not produce sclerotia.  Is there a chance it is some other culture and is marked wrong?  I will say those do not look like any other sclerotia I am familiar with.  If that culture does produce Panaeolus subbalteatus mushrooms, you have stumped your toe on a new find.  Get back to me with pictures of the mushrooms.  I will then tell you what to do from there.  Send information to floridamycology@cs.com

Taken from the book "THE  GOLDEN  DOORKNOB", by Stephen L. Peele, FMRC:
Taken from "THE  GOLDEN  DOORKNOB", By Stephen L. Peele (FMRC):
Some species of mushrooms have the ability to produce sclerotia.  Most mushrooms and other fungi do not have this ability.  Several of the psychoactive species of mushrooms produce sclerotia.  Psilocybe mexicana and Psilocybe tampanensis are two examples.  The sclerotia is actually an alternative expression of the mushroom to insure the continuation of the species.  This modification is also directly associated with the survival of the mushroom during environmental extremes.  High temperatures, desiccation, or nutrient deprivation, cause these types of mushrooms to form this resistant structure.  The sclerotia is formed by the cells branching profusely, and then develop into a thick outer layer to protect the inside against the extremes of the current environment.  The sclerotia contains stored nutrients, and can survive under unfavorable conditions for many years".  No sclerotia that I know of grows on wood.
The use of the word truffle for these sclerotia is an incorrect term.  They are not truffles.  They are sometimes refered to as "philosopher stones".  I believe this term was placed by Dr. Pollock, the one who collected the first ever specimen of Ps. tampanensis along with Gary Lincoff in early Sept. 1976, just outside Tampla, FL.  It was once only held by 5 people when I deposited it into the CBS Culture Bank in The Netherlands to ensure that it would not die out.  I was once told that even Paul Stamets lost his culture.  Today, people all over the world have access to it.
The book sells for $20.00 post paid ($30.00 Overseas Airmail)  slp/fmrc

If maybe there were only 1 or 2 pictures.  Dang, I don't have time to look at all those.  When too many pictures are posted, its hard to keep posts up with "which pictures".  Here is some good advice.  Stay away from the shroomery.  You should be in good hands here.  slp/fmrc
