I bet you wouldn’t try to treat cancer with cocaine.
And you probably wouldn’t take heroin for heart disease, either.
If both of those ideas sound RIDICULOUS to you, then you’re not going to BELIEVE what our government is doing now.
The Food and Drug Administration is allowing a dangerous ingredient from a STREET DRUG to be tested on people with depression.
I’m talking about an illegal drug that’s been linked to everything from murder to suicide.
This is crackpot medicine at its VERY worst.
And you’ll want to act NOW to keep yourself and the people you love safe.
People with serious depression at up to 15 sites in North America and Europe are about to become human guinea pigs.
The FDA has just given the green light for COMPASS Pathways to begin clinical trials for something known as “psilocybin therapy.”
So what’s the big deal?
Psilocybin is the active ingredient in psychedelic mushrooms!
Yes, the same psychedelic, hallucination-causing mushrooms that Charles Manson and his followers used to enjoy.
Of course, the FDA wants us to believe that psilocybin could be some breakthrough for depression that doesn’t respond to other treatment (it’s NOT… I’ll explain more in a moment).
And there are websites claiming that psychedelic mushrooms are some of the safest street drugs around.
Well, they sure weren’t safe in 2010, when a California man gouged out his exercise partner’s eyes, tongue, and HEART after taking them.
And they weren’t safe when a 27-year-old school teacher stabbed himself to death with a broken bottle while high on the mushrooms and the psilocybin they contain.
Researchers have even conducted studies trying to understand why some people taking psychedelic mushrooms think they can fly and jump out of buildings.
Plus, like I said, using psilocybin isn’t exactly some breakthrough. Doctors and researchers have been experimenting with psilocybin for psychiatric conditions since the 1950s.
And there’s a VERY good reason it’s not considered a standard of care for depression.
Some of the side effects of psilocybin include debilitating hallucinations, panic, and anxiety.
Just what depressed people need, right?
Instead of looking for NEW drugs for depression, how about we try to understand what’s CAUSING the depression in the first place?
We know that things like poor diet, nutritional deficiencies, and hormonal changes are major contributors to the disorder.
And supplements like St. John’s Wort, curcumin, and SAM-e have been proven effective at treating depression.
Of course, Big Pharma can’t make money off of these natural cures… so they’re completely ignored.
There are lots of very effective medical mushrooms on the market – including immune-boosters like reishi and lion’s mane.
But psychedelic mushrooms… or “magic mushrooms,” as they’re known… are NOT on the list.
If you or someone you love is suffering from depression, stay away from these clinical trials and psilocybin therapy in general.
This is just another scheme to take advantage of desperate people… and make Big Pharma rich in the process.
