Embracing Neuroplasticity: Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy

Embracing Neuroplasticity: Psychedelic-Assisted TherapyIn the past few years, there’s been a big change in how we treat mental health, with something called psychedelic-assisted therapy becoming popular.

This new method uses drugs like psilocybin, Ketamine, or LSD during therapy sessions to help people with different mental health issues heal deeply and change for the better.

We’re learning more about how flexible our brains are, and it’s becoming clear that psychedelics can make the brain more adaptable, leading to lasting positive changes.

Because I am a leading Mindset Mastery Coach and Behavioral Change Expert, I decided to share about how psychedelic assisted therapy can create positive changes in the brain.

A New Look at Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy:

Psychedelics have been used for a long time, even by ancient cultures, for spiritual and healing reasons. In the middle of the 1900s, scientists studied them a bit, but then stopped for many years because of political and social issues. However, recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in psychedelic research, leading to a reconsideration of their therapeutic potential.

Unveiling the Healing Potential:

Psychedelic-assisted therapy is really good at helping with various mental health problems. Studies have shown that it can reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction, and even the stress of facing death. The best part is that these benefits can last a long time after the drug experience, showing that these drugs have a big effect on the brain.

Embracing Neuroplasticity:

Our brain’s ability to change and make new connections, called neuroplasticity, is super important for mental health and happiness. Research shows that psychedelics, especially psilocybin, can help the brain change and adapt. This means they can help heal and transform the mind in unique ways.

Unraveling the Mechanisms:

Embracing Neuroplasticity: Psychedelic-Assisted TherapyScientists are still figuring out exactly how psychedelics help the brain change. They know that certain brain receptors, like the 5-HT2A receptor, are important.

When psychedelics activate these receptors, a lot of changes happen in the brain that lead to new connections and changes in how the brain works.

Other parts of the brain and molecules are involved too, making psychedelics have a wide range of effects on the brain.

Personal Transformations:

Many people have had life-changing experiences with psychedelic-assisted therapy. They often feel more connected, more aware, and think deeply about their lives. These experiences can lead to better mental health, relationships, and overall happiness.

The Promise of Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy:

In Canada, there has been a growing acceptance of the potential therapeutic benefits of psychedelics. Recent regulatory shifts have allowed for expanded research and access to psychedelic-assisted therapy.

Ketamine Therapy is already legal and accepted, now the next step is to make things shift for mushrooms. In British Columbia, Psilocybin is already widely used for recreational and therapy purposes. There are countless mushroom shops and Online Dispensaries such as BC Weed Edible where you can get your Psilocybin products.

As public awareness and acceptance of psychedelic-assisted therapy continue to grow, it holds the promise of transforming mental healthcare in Canada and beyond.


Psychedelic-assisted therapy is a big change in how we treat mental health. It offers a new way for people to find relief from different mental health problems. By using psychedelics to make the brain more adaptable, this therapy could lead to lasting healing, personal growth, and life-changing experiences. As research and acceptance grow, this therapy could completely change mental healthcare and give hope to those who need it.
