Myristicin: Nutmeg is from a plant species called myrista, of which there are many kinds. It contains hundreds of chemicals, and nobody is absolutely sure which ones in which combination causes the hallucinogenic properties, but myristicin is the leading contender.

Active component: I happen to have a rare mature nutmeg tree and have felt curious about this product. It was a coveted spice in the past, and widely used as such. However, toxic or psychedelic effects, raw or in tea are related to its active component, a hallucinogenic substance called Myristicine.

Tea Tree Oil: I'm not sure about mangosteen or nutmeg powder for ringworm, but tea tree oil has been shown to help cure athlete's foot nearly as well as a prescription cream. You'd want to apply it twice daily for at least 2 weeks and be sure to keep the skin clean and dry. I would only try this on the body or feet for a few weeks, not the scalp; if not better, you should see your doctor. ...Read more
Is it unhealthy for me to get high on nutmeg as a method of coping with my mental illnesses? (i can't afford any type of hospital treatment)
People smoke nutmeg?: Boy, i'm such a small town square... I have no idea what is mixed in that or if its pure but my gut answer is: neither god nor evolution (your pick) made lungs as receptacles for burnt or burning particles. I would assume any inhaled combusting substance has a myriad of toxins that will damage the lung short or long term. Don't smoke nutmeg or for that matter parsley, sage, rosemary, or thyme. ...Read more

Not nutmeg: I would try something more mainstream as well. You can use tea tree oil as an adjunct; it's a fairly strong estrogen some men grow breasts from it. Start using topical benozyl peroxide as tolerated (maybe you can take up to 10% 2x/day). Retinoic or salicylic acid are other options. If you're not clear in two weeks, get with your personal physician who can add something that will clear you ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Normally on exam we may feel the distal edge, however, it is sometimes easier to percuss the size. In thin patients it can be easier. If someone has liver disease the liver edge can be found as low as the iliac crest or hip. Hope this helps, good luck. ...Read more
