What would it be like to live in a world where most medical professionals were open to the idea of the legalization of psilocybin assisted therapy, not just the most open-minded or “fringe” among them? Well, mushroom therapy is real and yes there are psychedelics doctors for psychedelic therapy that use magic mushroom treatment protocols.

Even a few short years ago, that notion that psychedelic mushroom therapy, psychedelic counseling, or using psychedelic medicine for therapy, treatments, and counseling would have seemed extraordinary, bordering on the impossible, but recent developments in loosening legal frameworks, overall societal acceptance, and, perhaps most influential, a staggering amount of interest from both public and private researchers may result in far more psilocybin-friendly medical professionals than even the most ardent of advocates could have ever asked for.

Psychedelic therapy being delivered in psychotherapy centers is real and is being used in conjunction with psychedelics counseling for anxiety and depression, PTSD, and for other medical health issues such as magic mushrooms for emotional wellness.

As a number of US states consider legalizing psilocybin therapy and decide to examine the benefits of psilocybin-assisted therapy and doctors themselves come out about palliative care experiences in their practices, and about their own psychedelic experiences using the most potent psilocybe cubensis strains for therapeutically valid purposes, the psychedelic mushroom therapy benefits list continues to grow. The collective ears and research departments of the private pharmaceuticals, research, and medical sectors have started to perk up as we covered in our post about the psychedelics industry and psilocybin industry companies.

One such organization is Braxia Scientific, which recently announced the launch of a clinical training program designed to educate physicians, psychotherapists, and psychologists in psilocybin-assisted therapy.

Braxia Scientific to Launch Clinical Training Program for Medical Professionals Focusing on Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy

psilocybin for treatment resistant depression

While we typically cover psilocybin related news within the United States, The Toronto-based Braxia Scientific’s program is taking place in Canada.

Here’s why it’s still noteworthy for us Yankees: if the program and others like it succeed, it’s likely that this influence will trickle down to the United States—which, if you weren’t aware, actually does play host to several clinical training organizations who concentrate on the therapeutic application of psychedelics. One example of a clinic concentrating on the therapeutic psychedelics includes the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies. However, we’re not aware of any that focus on psilocybin mushroom treatments or psychedelic mushroom therapy specifically by their doctors or medical professionals.

Thus, it’s worth noting that perhaps the most interesting facet of Braxia’s training program is the fact that it does specifically focus on psilocybin-based treatments; there are other clinical training programs with similar intentions but they’re either broader in scope, focusing on psychedelics as a whole, or focused on a different compound, such as MDMA or ketamine. There are even stories about magic mushrooms and Christmas celebrations.

We are encouraged to see the growing number of clinical studies focused on demonstrating that psilocybin, and other potential psychedelics, may be safe and effective in treating people with multiple mental health conditions including treatment-resistant depression.

Braxia’s program will train physicians and other medical professionals in how to best administer psilocybin to patients with depression. This is a relatively new area of study—at least in terms of western medicine—but there is plenty of evidence which strongly suggests that psilocybin is an effective tool, particularly for those patients who have “tried everything else.”

This includes those men having reproductive problems in their life that want to try penis envy mushrooms spores therapy for their particular health issues.

As far as medical depression and anxiety is concerned, the magic mushroom benefits of psilocybin compounds likely have something to do with psilocybin’s ability to “rewire” the brain by promoting new synaptic connections. Once new neural pathways are formed, important neurotransmitters like serotonin, the substance responsible for feelings of happiness and well-being, will actually have an easier time traveling throughout the brain. It’s an impossibly complex topic that is admittedly well over the head of this author, but we did do a fairly decent job of explaining how all this works (at a basic level) in The Psilocybe Philosophy post Neuroplasticity Explained: Can Psilocybin Rewire the Brain?.

Braxia’s program, and likely others similar to it, will teach trainees not only how to properly dose psilocybin, but to help the patient process the experience. Once trained, medical professionals can participate in future clinical trials for psilocybin assisted therapy. In the future, it’s probable that their training could be applied clinically, assuming psilocybin legislation keeps moving in a permissive direction (as it currently is in both Canada and the United States).

United States psilocybin-assisted therapy training

Will There Be More Psilocybin-Based Clinical Training Programs? And Will They Come to The United States?

At this point, it’s almost a certainty that there will be clinical training programs and psychedelic clinical trials conducted specifically for psilocybin-based treatments in the United States. At the time of this writing they’re few and far between, but that’s likely to change if the steadily increasing number us United States individual states jurisdictions continue to examine the possibility of legalizing psilocybin (for regulated therapeutic use if not outright).

An ongoing court case that could be a major stepping stone to this end might end up being the lawsuit against the United States Drug Enforcement Agency by Dr. Sunil Aggarwal and a slew of cancer patients and state attorneys. The doctor and his cohort are seeking approval for access to psilocybin for end-of-life patients on the basis of the federal Right To Try law.

Only time will tell, but for psilocybin advocates, things are looking good.

Braxia’s Program Focuses on Psilocybin as a Treatment for Depression, But Can Psilocybin Do More?

Most clinical studies or training programs concentrate on the use of psilocybin to treat depression. However, evidence continues to strongly suggest that the compound can be an effective treatment to realize the benefits of magic mushrooms therapy, from PTSD to obesity to lesser-studied ailments like psilocybin for tinnitus therapy.

Calling All Amateur Microscopists: Study Psilocybin Mushroom Spores At Home, Legally For Mushroom Therapy

Did you know that there’s another group of passionate researchers dedicated to studying the formative stages of the fungi that brings us psilocybin?

It’s true! Amateur microscopists and mycologists from around the country are legally studying psilocybin mushroom spore after questioning are shroom spores legal in my state? Since spores contain no psilocybin, as long as researchers never cultivate them in jurisdictions where doing so is disallowed, they’re perfectly fine to possess and use for personal magic mushroom therapy purposes.

There are perfectly legitimate reasons medical doctors are using psychedelics for depression, therapy, mental health, tinnitus, PTSD, and for psychedelic counseling purposes in psychotherapy centers.
