A study conducted by researchers in Anesthetic Research Center At Imperial College London, she led to breakthrough discoveries about the effect of psilocybin, or magic mushrooms, on depression. The study found that treating depression with psilocybin may be at least as effective, if not more effective, as antidepressants.
According to the researchers, in the most rigorous trial yet to evaluate the therapeutic potential of a “drug” compound, researchers compared two cycles of psilocybin therapy with a six-week course of one of the leading antidepressants (a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor called escitalopram) in 59 people with moderate depression. To severe.
The Results It was recently published in New England Journal of Medicine. According to the study, both groups had reduced symptoms of depression. However, the reductions occurred more quickly in the psilocybin group and were larger in size.
After six weeks, self-reported results from patients indicated that psilocybin was just as effective as the drug, and in many cases showed a slightly greater – but statistically insignificant – improvement in symptoms.
“We firmly believe that … the element of psychotherapy is just as important as the effect of medication,” said neuroscientist at Imperial College London, Robin Carhart Harris.
“With the drug, it is more about the release of thoughts and feelings. When guided by psychotherapy, it produces positive results.”
According to the study, five of the patients who took an SSRI had to discontinue due to negative effects of pharmaceutical antidepressants. None of the people who took psilocybin had to stop.
This study was preceded by similar research that yielded similar results. Multiple studies, including studies from Johns Hopkins University, have found that psilocybin mushrooms are incredibly beneficial for those facing certain death. The studies It found that psilocybin produced a significant and sustained reduction in depression and anxiety in patients with life-threatening cancer, and that occult-type trials on session days mediated the effect of psilocybin dose on therapeutic outcomes.
TFTP also reported, a study published in the scientific journal Neuropharmacology, Found that clinically depressed subjects had increased neurological responses to fearful faces 1 day after a psilocybin assisted therapy session, which positively predicted positive clinical outcomes.
“Therapy with the help of Psilocybin may relieve depression by increasing emotional contact,” says neuroscientist and study author Leor Roseman, Ph.D. Student at Imperial College London, Explained to PsyPost.
This is almost the opposite of how standard antidepressants work. SSRIs usually work by creating “emotional relief”.
”[T]Rosman noted that unlike SSRI antidepressants that are criticized for creating in many people a general emotional glow.
The reason why studies like this are important is due to the nature of side effects of SSRI medications. it was there 150 studies In 17 countries these side effects were caused by antidepressants. it was there 134 Warnings from the Medicines Regulatory Agency From 11 countries and the European Union they warn of dangerous side effects of antidepressants.
Despite the launder’s deadly list of potential interactions with these drugs, their use has occurred It has increased by 400% since 1988. Coincidentally, with the rise in antidepressant use, So did the mass shootings.
Site SSRIstories.org The link between SSRIs and violence has been documented. On the site is a file A collection of more than 6000 stories Which appeared in local media (newspapers, television, and scientific magazines) where prescription drugs were mentioned which may be related to a variety of negative consequences including most of the mass shootings that occurred on American soil.
As the Citizens’ Committee for Human Rights Notes, Before the late 1980s, mass shootings and senseless violence were relatively unheard of. Prozac, the most popular SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor) antidepressant, is not yet on the market. When Prozac arrived, it was marketed as a panacea for depression that brought huge profits to its Eli Lilly plant. Of course other drug companies had to make their own cash cow and track that by marketing their SSRI antidepressants.
After that, mass shootings and other violent incidents began to be reported. For the most part, the common denominator was that shooters were either taking an antidepressant, or withdrawing from it. This is not about a single incident or two however several Shooting.
The issue of psychotropic substances playing a role in mass shootings is not a conspiracy theory. It’s very real and drug manufacturers list these potentially fatal side effects on the same inputs for each of these drugs. In fact, these drug manufacturers have paid hundreds of millions of secret lawsuits to people who have succeeded in linking the deaths of loved ones to these drugs.
Eli Lilly paid survivors’ secret settlements after a man in Prozac went to the Shooting Rampage in 1989
Joseph T. Whisbaker, 47, was shot by a mass shooting of 20 Standard Gravure Corp. workers. In Kentucky, in September 1989. Eight of the victims were fatally wounded, and Whisbaker ended the rampage by shooting and killing himself.
Just a month ago, Wesbecker started taking the antidepressant drug Prozac, which included Side effects such asObsessed with suicide and dangerously violent behaviorAccording to an article in the American Journal of Psychiatry.
When the shooting survivors filed a lawsuit against Ellie Lilly Argues Knowing that Prozac had tilted to cause violent attacks and suicidal tendencies, the company convinced victims to agree to secret out-of-court settlements.
GlaxoSmithKline paid $ 6.4 million to the family of a man who killed three family members hours after taking Paxil in 1998.
Donald Schell, 60, was prescribed the antidepressant Paxil to treat depression in Wyoming in February 1998. Within hours of taking the first dose, he went into a fit of rage and Fatal bullet His wife Rita; Their daughter, Deborah Tobin. And their 9-month-old granddaughter, Alyssa.
Then Shell shot and killed himself. His remaining family members sued the drug company behind Paxil, and they were Awarded $ 6.4 million based onThe company has failed to adequately warn doctors and patients that the effects of the drug can include agitation and violence. “
GlaxoSmithKline also paid $ 3 million to the widow of a man who committed suicide after using Paxil in 2010.
Stuart Dullen, 57, was working as a lawyer for a company in Illinois when he was prescribed the generic version of the Paxil antidepressant to treat depression and anxiety. While on medication, he committed suicide by jumping in front of the Chicago Transportation Authority train.
His widow, Wendy Doolin, has filed a lawsuit against GlaxoSmithKline, Argues The company failed to warn her husband’s doctor that the drug he was prescribing for him would increase the risk of his suicidal behavior, resulting in his death.
“For me it wasn’t just about money. This was always about awareness of a health issue, and the public should be aware of that,” Wendy Doolin Tell Chicago Tribune after receiving $ 3 million in compensation.
While the above cases are notable because they have garnered much media attention, there are still a massive number of lawsuits that arose out of cases in which pharmaceutical companies paid millions of dollars for failing to warn doctors that the antidepressants they prescribe could drive patients to murder. Themselves and others.
Despite all this, the main media and the government continue to ignore or suppress this information. why is that? Try to share a post about the number of adverse reactions reported to VAERS from various COVID-19 vaccines and you will find out. Try to question the safety of vaccines, or point out that there have been no long-term studies, and you will see why.
It is no secret that the pharmaceutical industry exerts tremendous control over the government and the media. It is their control that prevents any negative press from being broadcast about their dangerous products. However, most people likely do not know the scope of this control.
As Mike Papantonio, attorney and host of the international TV show America’s lawyer, He explainsExcept for CBS, Every major media outlet in the United States shares at least one board member with at least one pharmaceutical company. To put that into perspective: These board members wake up, go to a meeting at Merck or Pfizer, and then ask their driver to take them to a meeting with NBC to determine what kind of programming that network will broadcast.
We have even reported incidents in which the network cut off correspondents mentioning the on-air connection. In a clear example of how grateful the mainstream media is to the pharmaceutical industries that manufacture and market these drugs, Sean Hannity of FOX News was recorded last year, blatantly cutting off a reporter who dared to mention Nicholas Cruz. Link to antidepressants.
In the report below, Papantoniou explains how the billions of dollars that major pharmaceutical companies give to the major media every year are being used to keep them submissive and complicit in covering up a plethora of deadly side effects of their products.
As we can see, with current censorship and narrative control regarding those who question the safety of COVID-19 vaccines, the major pharmaceutical companies exert enormous control over the information that you are allowed to talk about and consume. It looks like the executives at these companies would do well if they tried a little psilocybin from time to time.
