Psychedelics Discovered as a Treatment for Depression
In the early days of psychedelics being used, they were seen as recreational drugs. However, in modern times the allowed exploration into these substances has been making progress as medical treatment.
Why Psychedelics for Mood Disorders?
Primarily for neurological disorders such as Treatment-Resistant Depression (TRD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, Anxiety issues, and the like. While SSRIs and other medications have been the standard. Psychedelics have been promising results with the ability to research them properly.
Early Findings of the Effectiveness of Psychedelic
In some patients who haven’t received the outcomes, they are seeking standard medications. Psychedelics may provide a unique modality to managing these symptoms.
A Specific Study
In 2017, Roland Griffiths and Stephen Ross’ studies that were brought to the FDA seemed unlikely to be approved for medical use. Surprisingly, the government was open to the new idea to combat one of the growing illnesses in the world. Mental illness.
Red Tape in Mental Health
Once approved, the study gave a greater insight into the mental health effects rather that could be used to help those with few remaining options. Even though their studies proved to be more difficult to conduct, their belief and persistence help shed light on the positive possibilities.
FDA Approval for Psychedelics to be Studies
To their surprise the FDA asked for expansion of the program and research, seeing the possibilities a once demonized chemical psychedelic might have. Not only was this psychedelic being used for cancer and tern=minally ill patients. It was also being recognized by the greater medical community as a new and often effective treatment
Results of Clinical Trials
After a week of clinical trials, nearly all of the patients were claiming a noticeable difference in overall mind-state. Here are a few testimonials gathered from different studies conducted around the globe. We all experience medications differently but the tailored approach we take at the Neuroscience Center addresses those issues.
After-Effects and Testimonials
One of the most beautiful benefits was that many patients felt a connection to the everyday joy they hadn’t felt for months or years. One patient is quoted as saying that, “I would look at orchids and intellectually understand there was beauty.”
Other patients would use phrases such as. “It was like a holiday away from the prison of my brain.”
This is the possible power of these mental health tools to create a sense of self-actualization that is empowering. By using psychedelics for depression they were able to confront a personal issue, whether positive or negative. These are imperative in creating true lifestyle changes towards a more effective form of mental health management.
