Over the years, the relevance and applicability of psychedelic mushrooms continues to increase with many fascinating uses emerging every day. Psychedelic mushroom has offered commendable therapeutic value in the field of mental health. It has facilitated the treatment and management of a variety of cerebral conditions with satisfactory results. While Psychedelic mushroom is traditionally known as an effective treatment for depression and anxiety, recent investigations have revealed an unprecedented benefit of the therapeutic plant. Experts have uncovered that Psychedelic mushrooms have the capacity to heal and rejuvenate a wounded brain.
The investigation into the revitalizing effects of Psychedelic mushrooms on the brain is undoubtedly an astounding revelation. The research which used rats as subjects was designed to habituate the rats to be afraid when certain conditions are introduced while assessing the influence of the mushroom. The investigation which was coordinated by the University of South Florida produced staggering results. They found that psilocybin which is one of the main substances in Psychedelic mushrooms, relieved the rats from being afraid. In addition to having this eliminating fear from the rats, they also discovered the incredible, that psilocybin mushrooms facilitated cerebral rejuvenation of the rats.
Cerebral Influence of Psilocybin Mushrooms
The investigation involved creating painful discomfort intermittently by electrocuting the mice. The mice would be electrocuted periodically to the accompaniment of a sound. Quite naturally, the rat would draw an association between the sound and painful electrocution. After sometime, the rats would instinctively associate the sound with pain. Even after the electrocution stopped, the rats had been habituated to fear the sound. Rats that were inoculated with small prescriptions of psilocybin recuperated faster form the trauma of hearing the sound. On the other hand, rats that were not given prescription of psilocybin remained afraid for a prolonged period when they heard the sound. Dr Juan Sanchez-Ramos reported that the rats that were given psilocybin prescription became completely unafraid of the sound faster.
In addition to this startling discovery, it was discovered that the psychedelic mushroom is particularly capable of cerebral rejuvenation. Rats that were given psilocybin doses experienced growth of more brain cells which is believed to have expedited recovery from the sound by eliminating cerebral pathways that made them afraid.
Many experts support the view that psilocybin fuses with brain cells responsible for restoration and growth while interacting with the area of the brain that controls habits, and remembrance. This revelation offers groundbreaking therapeutic healing to people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. Unarguably, the use of psychedelic mushroom would expedite recovery by helping to dissociate certain sensations from the overwhelming impulsive feeling of impending doom that causes uncontrollable panic.
It becomes clear from the aforementioned that psilocybin influences memory and assimilation in ways that could help the brain to rewire pathways, making certain sensations that provokes an irresistible feeling of peril to be perceived normally. A leading authority and specialist Dr. Briony Catlow acknowledge the interaction between psilocybin and its interaction with the brain to facilitate the eradication of fear. He also expressed optimism about the findings of the investigation and hopes that further trials would be carried on humans.
The effect of Psychedelic mushroom on the mind is remarkable. It eliminates the natural pathways of the brain that are responsible for creating inattentiveness, low self-esteem and uncertainties while broadening the scope of the mind to embrace and explore the environment. Psychedelic mushroom has a profound healing effect on post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental conditions like anxiety and depression. It functions by eliminating strong pathways in the brain that creates compulsive behavioral, cognitive and emotional patterns while rejuvenating the mind to break free from obsessive retrogressive thinking. Psilocybin has been identified by David Nutt of the Imperial College London’s Neuropsychopharmacology as having the capacity to suppress compulsive thinking.
After a careful exploration of all of the facts contained in this exposition, it becomes apparent that psychedelic mushroom offers tremendous therapeutic benefits that cures and alleviates a host of cerebral conditions. It is expected that with more investigations, Psilocybin would be developed into an effective cure for post-traumatic stress disorder as well. While psilocybin continues to provide many therapeutic benefits, American authorities remain completely oblivious of its many therapeutic values and have failed to decriminalize it.
