From using psychedelics to aid in end-of-life anxiety to using psychedelics to aid with pain management, openness as well as Alzheimer’s.
As we know, microdosing can aid those who suffer with anxiety, depression, PTSD, low libido, addiction – heck the list really goes on!
But what about our elderly population, are mushrooms safe for them to consume?
The short answer is yes, but for what you may be wondering.
Mushrooms have the ability to prevent cognitive decline not only in young adults but in the elderly as well!
From using psychedelics to aid in end-of-life anxiety to using psychedelics to aid with pain management, openness as well as Alzheimer’s – psychedelics and mushrooms in particular are being studied and administered to help heal and bring ease to our older population.
Roland R. Griffiths, PhD a psychopharmacologist and professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Sciences and the Department of Neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said in an interview with Forbes that the approach could offer “an entirely new paradigm for treating psychiatric disorders.”
For example, Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative condition. It is one of the most common forms of dementia, a group of symptoms that lead to a decline in mental function severe enough to disrupt daily life.
In a study facilitated at the Oxford Academy, frequency of depressive syndromes in elderly individuals with no cognitive impairment, mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease dementia improved in some cases right away and in other cases over time.
This means that as the roll out of psychedelic treatments become more readily available so do the case studies!
Stay tuned for more information about the elderly and psychedelics <3
