Why psychedelics?

Medicine that changes your mind

We’re beings that live in our mind and body. Our state of mind plays a huge part in how we think, feel, and interact with the world.

Current approaches to treating depression and anxiety, such as antidepressants, aren’t working. They can numb us to the world and don’t work for most people.

Psychedelic therapies provide us with an avenue for healing that goes beyond medicine, working holistically to help you discover compassion for yourself, feel profound joy and love your life again.

If conventional medications like antidepressants haven’t worked for you, you’re not alone.

Talk therapy is effective but it often takes a long time.

Fast-acting and long-lasting treatments are needed.

Existing treatment options do not meet the needs of the millions suffering from depression, anxiety, PTSD and more.

Psychedelics are a paradigm shift in mental wellness.

Mounting research suggests that psychedelic therapy is safe and effective for people suffering from depression, anxiety, and PTSD.3 Medicines like Ketamine, Psilocybin, LSD, and MDMA, not only provide quick relief, but also work to heal issues at their source.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Reconnecting the brain.

Synapses in the brain (connections that link neurons in the brain to neurons in the rest of the body) decrease as a result of stress, trauma, depression, and anxiety. The loss of these synaptic connections make it difficult for us to feel hopeful, happy, and motivated.4

Psychedelics help with healing by activating systems and states in the brain.

Default Mode Network (DMN)

The DMN is an interconnected group of brain regions associated with introspective functions like self-reflection and self-criticism. During a psychedelic trip, the DMN is temporarily shut down, quieting our inner dialogue and negative thought patterns. After, regions of the brain starts to work together more cohesively.5

Neuroplasticity

By increasing the brain’s ability to form new connections and pathways, it’s easier for those struggling with negative or anxious thought-patterns to form new ways of thinking. When our brains are more connected, we feel more connected!

 

A truly holistic approach.

With the treatment of mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, and PTSD, a holistic approach is the key to sustaining relief. Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy works on many levels: 

Body.

Compounds like ketamine and psilocybin have been shown to trigger synaptogenesis, a process where the brain physically repairs itself.6 This sets a stronger foundation for lasting change. 

Mind.

Through deep, supported introspection, psychedelics can help us better understand the trauma and struggles we’ve gone through, care for ourselves, and feel more invested in our lives.

Spirit.

Psychedelics were first used by indigenous cultures for spiritual rituals. These experiences often elicit a sense of sacredness, purpose, and connection. They offer us a chance to tap into what it means to be human. 

 

Psychedelics have gone mainstream.
