The microbiome and psychedelics: it’s not all in your head

Dr. John Kelly of Trinity College in Ireland suggests interventions to the microbiome could be used as preparation and integration phases of psychedelic journeys. The theoretical framework he presents even hints the microbiome’s established effects on mood might only be part of the story, [saying,] “It is conceivable that certain gut microbiota configurations and associated signaling pathways may play a subtle role in the inter-individual variability of psychedelic metabolism.”

Grasping that a simple food choice affects physical and mental health through not just nutrient composition but how it feeds the microbiome, which goes on to affect more bodily processes, and perhaps even how a psychedelic drug works take some mental gymnastics. Indeed the problems and potential presented by psychedelics and the microbiome highlight a level of interconnectedness between us, our environments, and our choices that are pretty psychedelic in itself.
