Taking Magic Mushrooms for Your Mental Health

Your brain on magic mushrooms


Taking a macro or micro-doses of magic mushrooms offers you unique mental and physical health benefits.  Micro-dosing is the process of taking a low dosage of a psychedelic such as magic mushrooms daily without it affecting your normal day-to-day cognitive abilities.


Continue reading to discover why medical researchers are excited about the benefits of taking psilocybin magic mushrooms for treating stress, anxiety, and depression.


Giving Your Brain A Reboot with Magic Mushrooms

Psilocybin acts on your brain by destabilising old neural networks. This frees up your brain’s energy for new neural networks to form.  Also, if you suffer from a psychiatric condition, your brain may be reset if you consume psilocybin magic mushrooms. It is like defragging or rebooting your brain with your brain’s operating system upgraded to a leaner fitter version.

Psychedelics like psilocybin can also lower the neural activity in your normal default brain network. This is the area of your brain which is focussed on your ego and self-identity. Increases in default neural network activity has been observed in brain scans of people with depression. Decreases in these brainwave patterns was seen in brain scans of long-term meditators.


Neurons and magic mushrooms


Brain cell growth and renewal helps you to recover if you suffer from depression and anxiety. Psilocybin and other psychedelics increase the amount of nerve branches emanating from your brain neurons. This increases your brain’s neuroplasticity resulting in increased learning and a better memory. Taking psychedelics for your healing, including magic mushrooms and LSD, can improve your overall brain health and cognition. Psychedelics also accelerate the healing process following a brain injury.


Magic Mushrooms for Treating Anxiety and Depression

Psilocybin has been shown to be effective in reducing the symptoms of anxiety and long-term depression. Psychedelic mushrooms can also help with treating anxiety and depression that is resistant to other forms of treatment such as talk therapy and antidepressant drugs. So far, all medical evidence suggests that people with long-term depression recover and experience a happier and more positive perspective on life after psilocybin treatment.


People who suffer with anxiety and depression and who want to lead a normal daily life can micro-dose magic mushrooms to relieve their symptoms over time. Psilocybin targets the serotonergic 5-HT2A receptors. This results in an increase in production and transmission of Glutamate. It also promotes the production of BDNF (Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor) in the human brain.


Magic Mushrooms


Treatment with psilocybin in magic mushrooms has been shown to be effective in relieving severe long-term depression for 12 months or more in different clinical trials. In a medical study of adults who suffered with long-term depression, psilocybin with supporting talking therapy helped people, who were previously suffering from depression, to achieve long term mental stability.


Patients who suffer with a life-threatening illness, such as cancer will often experience end-of-life anxiety. This is anxiety and fear of death from knowing that you are going to die soon. According to medical trials, psilocybin therapy is highly effective in lowering the level of anxiety in patients who suffer from life-threatening cancer over a period of six months or more. Some governments, for example in Canada, allow the use of psychedelic mushrooms for terminally ill patients in psilocybin therapy to ease their anxiety and depression.


Psilocybin and Treating PTSD

A medical research team in South Carolina has shown in clinical trials that people who suffer with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) benefit from the use of psilocybin in their therapy. They displayed significantly improved results in the medical trial than those who did not have psilocybin magic mushrooms in their treatment.




Psychological changes to the human brain which are triggered by psilocybin treatment have much potential in assisting with the management of post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, and panic attacks. Whilst few human trials have been completed, the results are very promising and indicate that psilocybin, and psychedelics such as magic mushrooms, are an effective alternative treatment for PTSD.


Psilocybin and Anorexia

Anorexia is difficult to treat, and it is four times more deadly than severe long-term depression. Many people who suffer from anorexia are so underweight that they risk dying, and 1 in 5 anorexic patients attempt suicide. Anorexia is usually treated with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and supervised weight gain.


Many researchers feel that psilocybin can help anorexia patients to recover from their condition. It has already been shown that ayahuasca ceremonies can improve the symptoms of various eating disorders. Imperial College London’s Psychedelic Research Centre is investigating the effectiveness of psilocybin, LSD, and other psychedelics to treat anorexia in medical trials.

Psilocybin Side Effects and Legality

As the mounting body of medical evidence stacks up, psilocybin therapy is a unique and effective way to treat many mental health issues. Psilocybin therapy will save lives and it is criminal that many governments have not legalised the use of psychedelics, including magic mushrooms, for medical research and treatment. When legalized for clinical use, the appropriate dosage of magic mushrooms or psilocybin can help people to heal who suffer from a variety of mental health conditions where conventional techniques don’t work.


Psychedelic research is expanding, and the results seem promising, and more medical studies are being conducted to ascertain the full spectrum of health benefits from taking a small or a large dose of magic mushrooms or other psychedelics for treating mental health conditions. The potential side effects of magic mushrooms include nausea, pupil dilation, increased heart rate and blood pressure, sedation or stimulation. These side effects are limited to the magic mushroom experience. When your psychedelic healing experience is over, you can then enjoy a range of mental and physical health benefits without any side effects.
