Jan 24, 2012 Full story: MediLexicon 13

It seems the tide of opinion against illegal drugs is turning once again with scientists proclaiming that the Psilocybin Mushroom, popular with party goers and better known as Shrooms or Magic Mushrooms, should be successful for treating people with depression.

Depression is directly related to the use of pharmaceutical products changing the normal chemical balance of the brain along with diet and environmental pollution including the water supply that is becoming more polluted with the human discharge of those toxic pharmaceutical products such as the mind drugs. These drugs are absorbed by showering and drinking and effect the non prescribed victims.

I don't think mushrooms are really a recreational drug, they are very powerful and your experiences depend on your mood, setting and state of mind. It can be transformative, yes perhaps even help depression symptoms, but its not to be messed with. Bad trips are a likelihood for people with mental health issues, if the mushrooms are not used properly.

Personally I've found that my first dose of magic mushrooms, which was 1g, has positively affected my outlook on life since, and I feel like they could be used to self-medicate for depression, and also for ppl with a chronic lack of motivation. The boost in motivation and happier outlook on life from that 1 dose lasted several weeks, and in my honest opinion still positively affects me to this day (its been about a year). Furthermore, I do advise caution for ppl that dose while having serious mental health struggles. 1g is effective and particularly safe from a bad trip, as it seemed somewhat of a threshold dose. It is quite probable that a sub-psychedelic dose could potentially still be used therapeutically, perhaps 500mg even. It is truly a shame that these wonderful gifts of nature are illegal in many places worldwide...

Well, the mushrooms were dry, and I chewed em up and swallowed em. Not very pleasant tasting, it is a taste that u wont be able to forget, but easily washes away with orange juice. I had a long trip, of about 7 hours, which according to most websites that supply info on the subject, was a bit longer than usual. Within a half hour of eating them, I started laughing, and couldn't stop. Slight gastric discomfort, with quite a bit of gas. Slight nausea. Bloating. During the onset of the trip, I could not think clearly, and was enjoying the visual distortion of objects around me. Particularly interesting were objects that had a source of light, EG: microwave time, tv, cell phone, laptop. Music was very pleasing to the ears as well. A lot of morphing occurred, and the walls 'breathed'. Colors were more vivid, and lights were brighter. Towards the end of the experience I had less distraction and some time to look inside myself, and discovered that the reason I have been uptight all the time is because I cant let things go. I learned that in order to be happy one would first have to experience PURE unhappiness. I learned that I needed to have a direction in life, a goal for a means to make something better out of myself. There were more things I learned, and they are all important. The next day I decided I am gonna job hunt, apply to temporary employment organizations, and see if there was any organizations that could help with job placement from workforce development. I have since been more motivated than ever before, these magic mushrooms have seriously changed my life, for the better. I feel happier, and what I learned that day has stayed with me even still. Hope I help sum1 with my experiences, every1 should do them at least once. Respect them, and LEARN from them. They open ur eyes to so much that was always in front of u the whole time, but u just could not see it. I do feel that they also leave a long-term uplift in ur mood as well.

Thanks that was very insightful, I am pleased for your breakthrough. I find that mushshrooms have similar physical effects, it does upset the stomach due to a protein in the mushshrooms which our bodies cant digest. I find that it makes me think multidimensionally, time and space have no meaning. I also laugh, and yawn profusely.

I do find that its dangerous if your state of mind is not good, just something to be aware of.

This is an interesting finding. At least, depression treatments now come in organic stuff such as mushrooms. Most chemically formulated antidepressants can cause hazardous side effects. Take Paxil for example. I've read from this site that it causes insomnia, suicidal behavior and birth defects.

I don't know how this story got out- but yes, it's true! Don't try this at home. The FDA is now conducting research on this unique phenomimon. Psilocybin has a potential to unlock unconscience recalcitrant unammliarated memories that may offer hope for intractable deeply entrenched depressive symptoms.

There are many studies that are being conducted to know id these magic mushrooms could really help a person with depression. Some may even try this new formulation to avoid the side effects of Zoloft and other SSRIs.

Those living on the farms have used magic mushrooms for years. It was medicinal to them and the families. IN THE 1960,s students from
the University of Florida would swarm the cow fields looking for piles of dung with mushroom growth.

To allow the mental health industry any involvement with any chemical substance considering they have no science would be dangerous. The industry is political and would endanger the health and welfare of the society.

I have suffered with ptsd and depression since the suicide of my father years ago. My recent experience of consuming about a g of mush lifted a huge wieght and sadness from my mind for some reason. I finally feel like I let the past go and feel like a small dose could benifit those dealing with similar issues. I'm no chemist. I do not reccomend drugs to anyone. But feel like the mushrooms v. Depression topic deserves some research.
