Have you heard of hallucinogenic therapy? In the1950s, psychedelic drugs like LSD took the market by storm. It was not surprising because it was one of the few treatments available back then for mental health. It was a significant step in seeing nature's effects on the body.
More than that, studies show—like the one by the Beckley Foundation on the effects of psilocybin on depression—that hallucinogens are an effective alternative treatment for various mental health problems. Experts have shown that hallucinogenic drugs can help people deal with their mental health concerns.
Sadly, twenty years after it was first introduced, hallucinogenic treatments were stalled in the 1970s. The large part of it was because psychedelic drugs developed a bad reputation.
People began to see it as a form of recreational drugs, although the legal psychedelics practice believed the drugs were beneficial to the public. However, the federal government...

Ayahuasca is a psychedelic brew that is made from the leaves of the Psychotria Viridis shrub and with the stalks of the banisteriopsis caapi vine. It is used in Northern South America and Brazil as a sacred brew for religious and spiritual communities. A lot of people today go on retreat so they can take ayahuasca as a way to open their minds, heal trauma and addictions and some just want to have the experience.
How it is Made
A shaman is an experienced healer who will make the ayahuasca brew and lead the ayahuasca ceremonies. They clean and smash the banisteriopsis caapi vine before they boil it so they can get all the medicinal components. They then prepare the brew by boiling the leaves of plants in water. When the shaman is happy with how the brew is, they will remove the water and keep it so just the plant material is left behind. This process will be repeated until it is a highly concentrated liquid. Then it is cooled and strained to remove anything that shouldn’t be...
Two people walk into a health clinic; one is an elderly man of 72. He is a tall and thin man with naturally fair skin, his hands and feet are often cold, at night his mind races and he suffers insomnia, he tends to have dry skin and his hair has always been thin and fine, his digestion is typically very sensitive. He’s at the Doctors office today for a skin outbreak that is itchy and red.
The other individual is in her early forties; she has what might be called a medium or athletic build, tends to have oilier skin, a strong appetite, a quick temper, and is hungry often. She is also at the doctor today for a rash that is red and itchy.
In a modern Western medical clinic and the doctor diagnoses both patients with eczema and prescribes both patients with the same steroid cream- a solution that does not address cause but causes the rash to go away, at least temporarily.
Stories like this are familiar to those of us in the west or, indeed, the westernized and modern...
The word Ginseng comes from the Chinese name “renshen” which literally translates to ‘man root.” It is thought to have been given this name because the root of the plant looks like the legs of a human. Ginseng is any of 11 different varieties of short, slow-growing perennial plants with fleshy roots. It is believed to restore and enhance normal well-being and has become one of the most popular herbal remedies in the world today.
It has some absolutely incredible uses! It is a powerful energy provider, stimulating physical and mental activity among those who are weak and tired. A Mayo Clinic study revealed ginseng showed good results in helping cancer patients with fatigue. It also is said to improve thinking ability and mental cognition. While this has been an ancient claim, it has yet to have any substantial support from rigorous studies today.
This plant has seven constituents, ginsenosides, which have immunosuppressive effects, according to an experiment...
This episode explores an overview of the history of psychedelics and was made as a part of a team project with Collective Evolution.
The first recorded use of psychedelics doesn’t exist because it stretches way too far back in time, so many theories surrounding when and how the first usage actually was. Terence Mckenna is the pioneer of many psychedelic theories she first brought forth the theory that early prehistoric man found psychedelic mushrooms and began conceiving things in a new way.
Many ancient cave drawings depict almost identical images of humanoids with geometric waves shooting out of their heads, and even people with mushroom heads. There is still debate for when the first psychedelics were used, but the first concrete evidence points to hemp cultivation as early as 8,000 BC in Taiwan.
Then in 4,000 BC, there is evidence of the amanita mushroom being used by shamans in Siberia and in 3,000 BC ayahuasca was used in the Amazon jungles.
While widely debated, it is...
