Magic mushrooms can effectively treat depression without ‘blunting’ emotions like anti-depressants: Study

“I believe that psychedelics hold a potential to cure deep psychological wounds, and I believe that by investigating their neuropsychopharmacological mechanism, we can learn to understand this potential,” study author Leor Roseman, a PhD student at Imperial College London told PsyPost.

A study has revealed that majority of patients taking mushrooms, seemed to have eased their depression symptoms – and experts also said that it could ‘cure deep psychological wounds’. At the same time, in further interesting revelations, it was found that the intake of mushrooms has not dampened the area of the brain responsible for processing emotional reactions. Researchers, therefore, concluded that psilocybins or these magic shrooms can bring similar benefits to selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) – while also enabling them to ‘reconnect with their emotions’. With more than 300 million people affected by depression worldwide, it persists to be the leading cause of disability and death.
