There is a unanimous agreement among all doctors across the world that mental illnesses have no “fixed” treatment. The foremost argument that doctors put forward is that mental illnesses vary from one patient to another. Partly because the symptoms vary from one individual to another and partly because of the less efficiency of psychedelic drugs.
However, the actual problem is that mental illnesses can vary in intensity in every patient. On top of that, the real-life experiences of each patient determine the intensity of the illness. In turn, the treatment also varies from one patient to another. To put it in simple possible words, there is no “accurate” and all-encompassing treatment for mental illnesses. It is circumstancial, doctors argue.
Of course, there are thousands of psychedelic drugs that are used to treat different mental illnesses. And Psilocybin is the foremost one among them all. But the problem with these drugs is that they have toxicity and addiction factors in them. In other words, as a mental patient uses any of these drugs, the patient becomes addicted to these drugs.
For survival, the patient is bound to rely on these psychedelics. That is the major issue with psychedelic drugs. That is why every drug goes through an intensive trial and research prior to becoming legalized. However, to treat mental illnesses, doctors have been relying on natural drugs. For decades, scientists and researchers have been extensively working on ‘natural’ herbs to treat mental illnesses. Psilocybin is one of those drugs.
For over four decades, researchers have been working on Psilocybin. These numberless extensive studies have been working on the efficiency of the psychedelic drug in treating mental illnesses of all forms. Now, the researchers have come to what they call a “breakthrough conclusion.”
Thus, researchers have come to the conclusion that the idea of Psilocybin is not “new.” instead, it has been playing a pivotal role in the spiritual rituals of communities across the world. Thus, the revelation is a pearl of ancient wisdom, deep-rooted in many cultures across the world.
this gives us an insight that the idea of using Psilocybin mushrooms is not a novel idea. Furthermore, studies reveal that Psilocybin has no factor of toxicity and addiction in it. Patients will not be addicted to this psychedelic drug after the treatment of the illness, researchers argue.
Of course, this is a breakthrough revelation for doctors and mental patients across the world. If an illness that makes millions of people suffer internally can be treated through an ancient herb, it is definitely worth it. However, Psilocybin has not been legalized in the United States yet. The drug is in the final stage of being approved.
It is essential to note here that Psilocybin mushrooms can be found in jungles and wild areas. Some rural areas of America also have Psilocybin mushrooms. So, finding these psychedelics is not hard whatsoever.
