The healing properties of magic and normal mushrooms
Magic mushrooms can be healing
A part of this article is about the magic mushrooms.In the Netherlands we are allowed to use magic truffles for our truffle ceremonies. Magic truffles are the parts of the mushrooms that grow below the ground when the circumstances are bad for the mushroom to grow above the ground. Magic mushrooms and magic truffles are the same organism and they both contain the psychedelic psilocybin. When we speak about a mushroom ceremony it’s actually a magic truffle ceremony.
Psilocybin mushrooms (shrooms)
In trip therapy we promote healing properties of magic mushrooms, the psilocybin containing varieties of mushrooms. We combine the healing properties of these psychedelics with healthy lifestyle advice for unprecedented good results. From this vision, we want to argue again that it’s not only the psychedelic effects of psychedelic mushrooms that can help us, but also the healing edible mushrooms.
Video about mushrooms
The video below is the story we have been trying to tell the world for years. It’s nice to see that this information is shared more and more on for example YouTube. The video below is a very nice and complete collection of what non-edible, edible and psychedelic mushrooms mean to us.
How can mushrooms help you?
Are you struggling with your mental health? Mushrooms can help you to better connect the brain and improve the state of the psyche. We can do this with mushrooms that will make you hallucinate or not. Here is a small overview of different medicinal mushrooms.
|Reishi||Anti-inflammatory so better immune system, less depression|
|Lion’s Mane||More Nerve Growth Factor against Alzheimer’s and MS (neurodegeneration)|
|Turkey tail||Better immune system, especially against cancer|
|Shittake||Activates immune system against viruses through AHCC|
|Chaga||Better immune system|
|He Shou Wu||Via superoxide dismutase protection against DNA ageing|
|Psilocybe||Hallucinations and BDNF for insights and connections in the brain|
Beyond this list, there are many other mushrooms that activate the immune system. A better immune system means lower inflammation levels in the body and therefore less inflammatory products that trigger depression in a biochemical way.
The psychedelic mushrooms of the species Psilocybe
For the psychedelic sessions we use species that belong to the Psilocybe group. At a somewhat higher dosage of these variants, hallucinations, visions, insights, new brain connections and other changes occur. How the psilocybin, which is converted into the active substance psilocin, exactly works is not yet completely clear. However, we have described a number of mechanisms.
