A study dealing with the ability of magic mushrooms to treat mental illnesses

Recent studies have shown that the hallucinogenic compound in magic mushrooms, called "psilocybin", It can be a game changer, as it may play an important role in some mental health treatments.

A study conducted by the College of Medicine, "Johns Hopkins University." Over 24 adults. The size of the effect of "psilocybin", on the people included in the study. It was about four times greater than what was shown by clinical trials of conventional antidepressants on the market.


At the time the participants had suffered from depression for two years. To give up depression medication. Thirteen participants received treatment with psilocybin immediately upon enrollment. Eleven participants were placed on a waiting list and received the same treatment after an eight-week delay.


Study participants received approximately 11 hours of psychotherapy. They received the medication under the care of trained professionals, and in an environment designed to calm the patient.


 


And while a 2016 study by some Johns Hopkins researchers found that psilocybin could relieve depression and anxiety in patients with life-threatening cancer. Other studies have suggested that the compound may help treat anorexia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and addiction.


 


Regarding the study’s success, Roland Griffiths, the author of the new study, said: “Because there are several types of major depressive disorders that may lead to variations in how people respond to treatment. I was surprised that most of the participants in our study found the psilocybin treatment effective.


Celluline can produce visual and auditory hallucinations and profound changes in consciousness over a few hours after taking it.


How psilocybin affects the brain is still not fully understood. Interpretations of the positive effect of celluline on the brain differ. But Nat from Imperial College said that the compound appears to disrupt negative thinking circuits through the "5HT2Z" receptor in the brain.
