What fears hold you back?


Sometime we can be held back by our own fears? We can be left feeling like a prisoner in your own mind. One of the beautiful things about magic mushrooms is that they can help us break out of those fear patterns.


That's right, I'm talking about the good old, psilocybin.



Recent scientific research has begun to shed light on the potential of psilocybin in overcoming fears and phobias. Studies have shown that psilocybin can lead to changes in the activity and connectivity of brain regions associated with fear and anxiety, and can reduce the severity of symptoms in individuals with PTSD. Not to mention, a lot of people have shared their experiences with shedding their own fears, there are cases of this all around the world.


Psilocybin works by binding to serotonin receptors in the brain, which leads to changes in neural activity and connectivity. This leads to a decrease in activity in the amygdala, the area of the brain responsible for processing and responding to fear and anxiety. This reduction in activity in the amygdala can lead to a decrease in the severity of symptoms of fear and anxiety.


Long term results?


But it's not just about the temporary reduction of symptoms, psilocybin has also been found to lead to long-term changes in the brain, which can result in a permanent reduction of fear and anxiety. Imagine, being able to face your fears head-on and come out victorious, like a superhero defeating a supervillain.


Conclusion


So, if you are interested in trying psilocybin for something fear related you are dealing with, it just might be able to help you out. Check out our FAQ section about dosing and how to dose safely and responsibly
