Can magic mushrooms help with depression? New cures on the horizon?


Recommended Posts

 

I have been reading some terrific results from these for treating serious clinical depression. Not suffering from it myself I'm still interested in their results. I have read testimonials that folks report great results. If you or someone you love suffers from depression this may be of interest.

Excerpt:

"First modern-era Colorado psilocybin clinical trial for depression set to launch this fall

Back in the 1950s and 60s, scientists did extensive research on psychedelics. Then research ground to a halt. Now, scientists are studying whether psychedelics, like magic mushrooms, could lead to much-needed new therapies for people coping with depression."

That was posted a year ago, so I did a little research and found only 2 recent articles that are related.

Psilocybin found in magic mushrooms shows promise as a treatment for depression

By Tony Hicks on May 3, 2024 — Fact checked by Jennifer Chesak, MSJ

Editor’s note: Expression of concern

On May 4, 2024, The BMJ attached an “expression of concern” notice to the study covered in this article, “Efficacy of psilocybin for treating symptoms of depression: systematic review and meta-analysis.” The expression of concern is related to an alleged calculation error in the study analysis. The study authors and journal editors are currently investigating this issue.
