Depression and the Magic Mushroom Treatment

The psychedelic ingredient in "magic mushrooms", psilocybin, holds promise for millions suffering from untreatable depression

Berit Brogaard, neuroscientist and professor of philosophy at the University of Miami will be presenting an effective and natural antidepressant – psilocybin.  Psilocybin offers several advantages over conventional medications: namely,  instead of merely treating a patient’s physical illness, it also treats the their personal context.

Hopefully one day the current political hysteria towards psychedelics will lift  — thereby allowing governments worldwide to encourage acceptance and the necessary research towards natural, innovative mental health treatments like psilocybin. After all, the World Health Organization lists depression as the number one cause of disability.
