Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy and Harm Reduction

As a naturopathic physician, I recognize the growing interest and research surrounding psychedelic-assisted therapy as a transformative approach to healthcare.

While I do not dispense psychedelic medicine, I aim to provide comprehensive education and harm-reduction information for those interested in exploring psychedelics as part of their healing journey.

Understanding Entheogenic Medicine

Psychedelic-assisted therapy, also referred to as entheogenic medicine, utilizes substances like psilocybin, MDMA, and ketamine, under professional supervision to facilitate deep therapeutic experiences.

These substances, known for their ability to promote profound insights and emotional healing, are being increasingly studied for their potential in treating conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

Education and Harm Reduction

My focus is on educating individuals about the safe pursuit of psychedelics as medicine, including:

  • What to Look for in a Practitioner: We’ll ensure you’re working with a qualified, experienced professional who prioritizes safety, ethics, and patient care.
  • Understanding Different Types of Therapy: Learning the difference between substances like psilocybin, known for its potential in treating depression and anxiety, to ketamine, used in specific clinical settings for its rapid-acting antidepressant effects.
  • Navigating Dosages: The importance of understanding the differences between a macrodose, which can induce profound, transformative experiences, and a microdose, taken in sub-perceptual amounts to potentially improve mood, creativity, and daily functioning.

I believe in the importance of a responsible, informed approach to exploring psychedelic-assisted therapy. This includes recognizing the legal status of these substances, the current scientific research, and the potential risks and benefits.

My goal at Meridian Passage Wellness is to support your interest in psychedelic-assisted therapy with reliable information and guidance, helping you make informed decisions about your health treatment options.

Step into a space of safety and knowledge as you explore the transformative potential of psychedelic-assisted therapy. Feel supported and guided, with every question answered and every concern addressed, as you navigate your path to profound healing.
