New Study Reveals Mushrooms Cure Depression by Doing the Exact Opposite of Anti-Depressants

Recommended Posts

Well this does not bode well for big pharma now does it!

A revolutionary new study is once again revealing a natural approach to be far superior to big pharma solutions—this time involving psilocybin, the active compound in magic mushrooms.

The study, published in the scientific journal Neuropharmacology, found that clinically depressed people had increased neural responses to fearful faces one day after a psilocybin-assisted therapy session, which positively predicted positive clinical outcomes.

“Psilocybin-assisted therapy might mitigate depression by increasing emotional connection,” neuroscientist and study author Leor Roseman, a Ph.D. student at Imperial College London, explained to PsyPost.

This is almost the exact opposite of how standard anti-depressants operate, as SSRI’s typically work by creating an “emotional blunting.”

“[T]his is unlike SSRI antidepressants which are criticized for creating in many people a general emotional blunting,” noted Roseman.

I remember experiences with "magic" mushrooms.  My wife-to-be (first) and I were at a gathering where 'shrooms were passed around.

She ended the evening naked in a bathtub fill of wet potting soil.  We planted starter seedlings around her as she lay in the dirt.

This particular group all worked together in a wholesale greenhouse.  Ah, those were the days my friends!

LOL! Yeah, I might have "read a few books" about shrooms along the way myself. What was nice was being able to get up, and think, "Damn, that was an intense few hours." and turn around and go to bed. None of this, "This is it...I'm gonna die wide awake."

As someone who suffers badly from depression, and someone who has used Liberty caps from the age of 13 (not had any in many of years, I’m now 52) I can think of nothing worse than taking a trip of shrooms to help relive the shithole your mind is in. But MDMA is a different kettle of molecules.

They know they don't know better, their trick has been legislating and convincing the masses that they know better. Look at how many people freak out if they think you ate a shroom. And how they look at you after they find it out. They've done a fine job of what they do which is take everything normal and natural and turn it into something illegal, immoral or fattening (be afraid of real fat, too! because eating it is actually good for you, but doesn't it make more "sense" when someone says "fat makes you fat" even though it doesn't?)
