On this episode of Raise the Line, we have the privilege of hearing from one of the nation's top healthcare leaders, Dr. Joshua Gordon, who is the director of the National Institute of Mental Health. In that role, he oversees an extensive portfolio of basic and clinical research that seeks to transform the understanding and treatment of mental illnesses, paving the way for prevention, recovery and cure. “Our main role is in trying to make sure that good science is conducted in the service of furthering public mental health,” he tells host Shiv Gaglani. One area of NIMH research that gets less attention than breakthrough medicines is how to make it easier for healthcare systems and practices to adopt best practices and proven treatments. This not only helps improve patient outcomes, but Gordon says it is one element in addressing feelings of a lack of effectiveness that contribute to provider burnout. “If we can increase individuals' efficacy by ensuring that they are trained in evidence-based approaches, and continue to make new treatments available to help those who aren't responding to the old ones, that's one way we can do that.” This is a rare opportunity to hear from a federal agency executive on some of the most pressing and interesting issues in healthcare including the shortage of providers, health equity, social determinants of health, telemedicine and the potential for psychedelics to treat mental health problems.

Garet takes the lead on this really interesting episode that delves into types of therapy that we've never heard of! Thank you so much to our listener who recommended this topic to us! The first topic we discuss is called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EDMR) therapy which was invented by mistake and can help folks struggling with traumatic memories and events in their past to process those memories without even necessarily having to talk about what happened! The other technique we discuss is called Brain Spotting, where someone uses a laser pointer and distracts you like a cat. Not really, but kind of!

I went on a deeply healing, fun, and life-changing plant medicine journey about a week ago. This experience was led by a professional and held in a ritual fashion. Everyone was safe, taken care of, and chose to go on this joinery for their own reason. This is my fresh summary of the experience. While more and more breakthroughs and awareness keep coming, this was my first unscripted sharing the experience with the public. This is not meant to encourage anyone to do plant medicine or other drugs or substances but to share my experience. I am not a shaman or a doctor, and everyone needs to consult their support systems, doctors, healers, and therapists before embracing these types of experiences. I hope you enjoy this share, and if you have any questions, you can always contact me.

Are psychedelics the real deal when it comes to healing trauma? What if you think you don't have trauma in your life? Tune in to learn about the healing benefits of psychedelics, as well as how to experience them in a safe environment. On today's episode, Jenn talks with Dr. Randall Hansen, who is a promoter of healing through the power of psychedelic medicines. Dr. Hansen discusses how he discovered the healing benefits of psychedelics and where we are as a country when it comes to FDA approval of using psychedelics as therapy. He educates on what trauma is and how psychedelics can help with uncovering and healing trauma, while also sharing stories from people who have been able to heal with macrodosing. Tune in to learn why psychedelics are a useful tool for healing, as well as what to look for if you are ready to give them a try.The Salad With a Side of Fries podcast is hosted by Jenn Trepeck, discussing wellness and weight loss for real life, clearing up the myths, misinformation, bad science & marketing surrounding our nutrition knowledge and the food industry. Let's dive into wellness and weight loss for real life, including drinking, eating out, and skipping the grocery store. IN THIS EPISODE:● [5:41] Dr. Randall Hansen tells us about his wellness and healing journey. ● [11:15] Where are we currently in terms of wider use and approval of psychedelic substances in the United States? ● [15:51] What qualifies as trauma?● [20:57] How does the body hold onto trauma even after we think we're healed from it?● [24:30] Dr. Randall Hansen shares what we know so far about what psychedelics are doing in the body.● [35:35] What do we know about what's happening physiology that allows us to have the observer mode, or re-experience something without it being traumatizing? ● [40:30] What Dr. Randall recommends for trying psychedelics safely.● [45:53] What should you look for to know that you are utilizing someone safely for your psychedelic experience? KEY TAKEAWAYS:● Trauma is unprocessed emotions that we block out and try to run away from. It can be from an event that happened (abuse, accidents, etc.) but it's also the absence of things, such as a lack of feeling loved or having your emotions validated. ● Community is so crucial when you are trying psychedelics, being able to talk with others about what you are experiencing, find safety while using (a doctor or therapist), and to uncover what you saw or were told during the journey. ● Psychedelics can help you take a journey in a non triggering, non threatening way so that you can experience your trauma, identify it, and begin to heal from it. Some people only need one journey, while others will need to repeat. QUOTES: “Intellectually we might think we're fine or we've worked through it. The body working through it is a different thing.” - Jenn Trepeck“Trauma's not the event that happened to you, it's the unprocessed emotions you just bury.” - Dr. Randall Hansen“According to announcements at MAPS (Psychedelics Science) Conference, they expect that MDMA...will be hopefully approved by the FDA for PTS therapy in 2024.” - Dr. Randall Hansen“The thing about all these psychedelics is they allow you to discuss or see the trauma in a non threatening, non triggering way, almost like you're watching a movie on TV or something like that, like it's someone else's story, but it's your story.” - Dr. Randall Hansen“First, we know that the psychedelics shut down our default mode network, which is our kind of our inner voice. It's always telling us, you know, how's my hair, always talking to us and driving is at least sometimes driving me crazy. And so it shuts that down. So all of a sudden there's a little more silence in your brain.” - Dr. Randall HansenRESOURCES:The Body Keeps The Score BookClinical Trials WebsiteRetreat Guru WebsiteBecome A Member of Salad with a Side of FriesJenn's Free Menu PlanA Salad With a Side of FriesA Salad With A Side Of Fries MerchA Salad With a Side of Fries InstagramGUEST RESOURCESPersonal WebsiteBook WebsiteDr. Randall Hansen's LinkedInDr. Randall Hansen's FacebookDr. Randall Hansen's YouTubeDr. Randall Hansen's TwitterDr. Randall Hansen's IGGUEST BIO:Dr. Randall Hansen has been an educator his entire life.

Today we are joined by Dr. Samuel Lee, MD, a true pioneer in psychiatry, plant medicine, and psychedelics. After extensive training and 10+ years practicing western psychiatry, Dr. Lee is challenging traditional norms by cultivating a new global paradigm of mental health rooted in unity, compassion, and the infinite potential of human consciousness. I had a beautiful and transformative experience with Dr. Lee's Heart Medicine Protocol, an intentionally curated journey combining western techniques, psychedelics, plant medicine, and spiritual integration. I'm also a big fan of his company, Practical Peptides, which makes the healing power of peptides more accessible and affordable. So, of course we spend some time today geeking out on the incredible science of peptides. You can use code LUKE for 12% off your first order at lukestorey.com/peptides.

In this episode, Kyle interviews Rachel Harris, Ph.D.: Psychologist in private practice for over 40 years, researcher who has published more than 40 peer-reviewed studies, and author of the new book, Swimming in the Sacred: Wisdom from the Psychedelic Underground. She talks about graduating college and going straight to Esalen, where she had little concern over therapy or integration, and how, after 20 years of ayahuasca experiences, she learned to see psychedelic-assisted therapy and ceremonial, transformational experiences as very different things. She discusses her ayahuasca journeys; a surprising MDMA experience; what having an ongoing relationship with the spirit of ayahuasca means; Ann Shulgin's concerns over going through death's door while in a journey; what true integration is; how psychedelics can help prepare for death, and more. And she talks about her new book, Swimming in the Sacred, which collects the stories, unique perspectives, and wisdom of 15 female elders who have been working in the underground for at least 15 years each, and how their experience has led to a somatic-based intuition and ‘know it in their bones' feeling that so many new practitioners and facilitators need – and can only come with time.

In this week's episode of Catt Sadler Now we speak with Catt's friend, NYT's Best-selling author Elise Loehnen. Her new book: “On Our Best Behavior - The Seven Deadly Sins and The Price Women Pay to Be Good” explores the ancient rules women knowingly (and unknowingly) follow in order to be considered “good.” Are you interested in a more balanced, spiritually complete way to live? So are we. As former Chief Creative Officer at GOOP, appearing on “The Goop Lab” on Netflix, and writing countless notable books and columns as a ghost-writer previously - Elise has spent the past few years examining her own career, health, and purpose. She now hosts Pulling The Thread podcast and is discussing her much-celebrated, critically-acclaimed book. In her candid conversation with Catt she talks about what it was like to feel like she was “dying” from her anxiety disorder, her experience in therapy using MDMA, and how to this day - she has yet to be interviewed about her story and book by a single man. WHAT?! If you suffer from “good girl behavior” or wrestle with the idea of being perfect or desire to get un-programmed and become the truest, purest version of yourself - this week's episode is a must-listen.

Journalist and author Rachel Nuwer joins Whiz on this episode where they take a deep dive into the healing power of MDMA. MAPS just released their most recent Phase III results, and they are even better than the last round. 71% of subjects were clinically ‘healed' from treatment resistant PTSD and trauma. Rachel breaks down the history of MDMA, including seriously flawed studies that resulted in ‘big lies' about MDMA. She talks about how MDMA helps with not only PTSD but those with autism or social anxiety issues. Finally, she gives her prediction about when MDMA will be legal (once again) for therapeutic use.

Drugs, fast cars, cash and beautiful women. That's all convicted drug dealer Andrew Truong wanted in life. He went from selling party pills at raves to dealing heroin in dingy streets.

Dr. Scott Lyons is the author of the book “Addicted to Drama: Healing Dependency on Crisis and Chaos in Yourself and Others”. He joins me for a discussion about all addictions - from alcohol to sex to food, and of course drama - and how they are formed. We also talk about how to heal from addiction by addressing the root. Scott also runs a Somatic Therapy school called The Embody Lab which offers fantastic training for coaches and healers. In this episode we dive into: The origins of addiction and how to define it (Disease or no disease?) Medical model vs. Humanistic model view of addiction.

The defence mechanism of denial. The link between addiction and a fear of intimacy. What addicted to drama looks like? Attachment to unnecessary turmoil and nervous system activation. Making sense vs. making sensation. How are you unconsciously creating childhood patterns in your adult life? Exaggerated responses vs. an inner sense of normalcy. Assessing currencies of love from childhood. The separation of process addictions and the necessities of being human. Disrupting your inner peace with the “revving reflex”. What does it look like to recover from addiction and heal? Building tolerance for ease and connection. Creating a narrative around withdrawal symptoms. Trauma lives in your nervous system and is a felt experience. MDMA therapy and trauma. Is it possible to escape drama in the capitalist world we live in? How do you support someone who is addicted to drama? Mirror neuron responses. Taking responsibility for the role you play in relationships.

This is the second instalment of our special mini-series focusing on extraordinary people with remarkable stories to share. Gabby was inspired to break away from the usual roster of celebrities and experts, and instead spotlight ordinary people who have real insight when it comes to overcoming adversity; Fiona Spargo-Mabbs has exactly that.In 2014, Fiona's worst nightmare became a reality when a police officer stood on her doorstep in the early hours of the morning and informed her that her youngest son, Dan, was in intensive care. This was the start of the worst few days of her life, as specialists raced against time to counter the effects of an extremely strong dose of MDMA (ecstasy) which Dan had consumed whilst at a rave with his friends. All of them had taken the drug, but Dan had been the one who had unknowingly taken the dose which was twelve times stronger than had caused deaths in the past.Dan never came home, and in the years since, Fiona has had to come to terms with her family's new reality. She talks about this, and how she and her husband, Tim, have thrown themselves into making sure that teenagers and parents have the drug education they need in order to avoid any other young person dying needlessly. You can find out more about The Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation here, and purchase Fiona's book I Wish I'd Known here.TRIGGER WARNING: This week's episode contains a conversation about the loss of a child.

Katherine MacLean, Ph.D. is a neuroscientist with expertise in studying the effects of mindfulness meditation and psychedelics on cognitive performance, emotional well-being, spirituality, and brain function. As a postdoctoral research fellow and faculty member at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, she conducted clinical trials of psilocybin, the primary chemical found in “magic mushrooms,” and other psychedelic compounds.Her groundbreaking research on psilocybin and personality change suggests that psychedelic medicines can enhance openness to new experiences and promote mental health and emotional well-being throughout the lifespan. Dr. MacLean co-founded and directed the first center for psychedelic education and training in New York, was featured in the New Yorker article entitled “The Trip Treatment" by Michael Pollan, and her TED Talk has been viewed nearly 50K times. Midnight Water is her first book. Episode Highlights▶ Katherine's personal journey with substances, including alcohol, MDMA, and mushrooms during her college years▶ Her path into the realm of psychedelic research and the scarcity of resources and support she faced there▶ How Katherine discovered her natural gift for helping people navigate challenging experiences as a researcher and guide in psychedelic therapy sessions▶ Concerns about the current direction of psychedelic research and development▶ Possible alternative approaches, such as public supplies of purity-tested MDMA and more inclusive training programs for guides▶ Why individuals should have autonomy in their own drug use▶ Katherine's personal journey of forgiveness and healing▶ Katherine's new memoir, Midnight Water Katherine MacLean's Links & Resources▶ Website: https://www.katherinemaclean.org/▶ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/katherine.maclean.phd/▶ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/katherinemacleanphd▶ Twitter: https://twitter.com/thekmacdose▶ Midnight Water: Pre-order: https://www.myvermontbookstore.com/book/9798986532479Info: https://greenwriterspress.com/book/midnight-water-a-psychedelic-memoirMedia: https://www.katherinemaclean.org/mediaNewsletter: https://www.katherinemaclean.org/mystical-monday
I used to be very quiet. Growing up, emotions would hit me like a hurricane. My face would turn red, my heart would race, and my hands, well, they'd shake as if I'd had ten cups of coffee. I'd be drowning in my own sweat. All of this from the tender age of 12 till I was 33. What sparked these reactions? My physical appearance. We live in a world where being different feels like a curse. Everyone's supposed to look a certain way act a certain way, and any deviation from the norm is met with criticism. Society's idea of 'fitting in' got its claws in me big time. People had a lot to say about how I looked. From friends to family, it seemed like everyone had an opinion: "Eat more," "Bulk up," "You look too skinny." These comments weren't just annoying - they scarred me. Over time, I became hyper-aware of every little thing about me. Mirrors became my enemy. I'd obsessively check my reflection, always wondering if I was 'good enough.' This need to conform ate away at my confidence. I compared myself to everyone around me. Instead of celebrating my uniqueness, I felt like I had to hide it. I was quiet, reserved, and, some might say, introverted. Those voices - those external judgments - made me retreat into my shell. My insecurities were so deep-rooted that I fell into a drug spiral. Yep, I experimented with various drugs: ecstasy, MDMA, ketamine (a horse tranquilizer), cocaine, marijuana... The feeling of being trapped, lost, and desperate to fit in became a never-ending loop in my life. But from that mess, something clicked. All those years of battling with my image made me realize how crucial it is to love ourselves. It's not about big biceps, ripped abs, or whatever. It's about looking in the mirror and being proud of what you see. That's why I'm sharing this now and why I am so fiercely passionate. For so many years, I wrestled with these demons, and now, I want to help others find their voice, embrace their uniqueness, and, above all, love themselves. So, if you've been where I've been, feeling down on yourself, trying to meet some weird standard, Join me for this episode, and let me help you love the heck out of yourself! Tune in now!

Paraphrasing Tim Ferris, “I don't know any billionaires who don't do psychedelics.” Why is this the case? What do they know that you don't?The field of psychedelics is undergoing a renaissance. It has been called the 5th wave of psychotherapy. The research results are impressive. The FDA has fast-tracked both MDMA and psilocybin as break through treatments. It is expected that MDMA will be legalized for therapeutic use with PTSD and trauma in 2024. And psilocybin (aka, magic mushrooms) will be legalized for therapeutic use in 2026. Why is there such a resurgence of interest in these compounds, some of which have been around for thousands of years in indigenous cultures (i.e., ayahuasca, psilocybin, ibogaine, peyote and more). Join Dr. John for a mesmerizing conversation with Matt Zemon, author & psychedelic evangelist. Topics Covered…• How might psychedelics help you to reclaim your true self? • Psychedelics as healing mental illness vs. expanding human potential• The myths and rumors around psychedelics • The bio-psycho-social-spiritual model of psychedelic medicine Microdosing Psychedelic medical treatments vs. ceremonies Can psychedelics be used instead of antidepressants? What are the differences? How is psychedelic medicine (or ketamine) being used legally for depression? Anxiety? Trauma? Optimization?

In this episode, Alex Belser, PhD joins us to discuss how psychedelics can help LGBTQIA+ people heal from bigotry and embracing their identity. After seeing him speak on stage at the Denver Psychedelic Science Convention on the topic of Queering Psychedelics, I knew we needed to have him on Open Deeply along with his co-presenter, Justin Natoli, who was our guest on episode 44. So much was discussed in this episode including how psychedelics can potentially help with the coming out process. And we didn't shy away from the dark history of psychedelics. For instance, did you know that psychedelics have been used unethically in tandem with conversion therapy in attempt to rewire sexual orientation? Horrible, but true. And finally, we discussed what the kink and psychedelic communities can learn from one another. All this and more as once again we dare to Open Deeply. Bio: Alex Belser, PhD is a clinical scientist, author, and licensed psychologist with a focus on psychedelic research. At Yale University, he's a Co-Investigator for a study investigating psilocybin treatment for people with OCD. He has explored the potential of novel therapies using psilocybin, MDMA, ketamine, and DMT to help alleviate human suffering and treat specific indications, including depression, anxiety, addiction, and PTSD. His most recent book: EMBARK Psychedelic Therapy for Depression: A New Approach for the Whole Person, co-authored with Dr. Bill Brennan, will be published later this year by Oxford University Press. Dr. Belser has co-founded a number of leading psychedelic organizations, including the NYU Psychedelic Research Group in 2006; Nautilus Sanctuary, the first non-profit on the East Coast dedicated to psychedelic medicine; and Adelia Therapeutics, where he served as Chief Clinical Officer (CCO). He also served as CCO at Cybin, where he chaired the Scientific Advisory Board. His other main area of interest is mental health for LGBTQIA+ people—his last book is Queering Psychedelics: From Oppression to Liberation in Psychedelic Medicine.

Dr. Kate Devlin speaks to Dr. Matt Wall, a cognitive neuroscientist at Imperial College London and Invicro, to discuss microdosing, legal red tape and what happens when you give an octopus MDMA. "Drug policy isn't on the agenda for any of the main UK parties.

Ep. 92 (Part 2 of 3) | Integral psychotherapist Mark Forman, author of the seminal work A Guide to Integral Psychotherapy, doesn't mince words when it comes to the field he is passionate about: helping people out of their mental pain and dysphoria. Mark's Integral perspective and longtime work in the trenches—with clients from all income levels, political persuasions, and levels of development—put him in a unique position to illuminate us as to the nuances of the hot button issues new to psychotherapy or ones that have suddenly exploded in numbers: misuse of the term trauma and its diagnostic creep, what the research says about the effectiveness of psychedelics to treat mental health disorders and what that portends for the future, the exponentially growing trend of teenage girls deciding they are transgender and the crying need for more data to help with counseling transgender and trans-curious youth, what is causing the loneliness epidemic, the pressing need to reimagine the male role to balance how feminism has changed the female role, and more. Mark describes the “therapeutic zone” that can happen in therapy when inspiration strikes, and shares the latest research on what makes therapists into “super-shrinks” who have client outcomes ten times better than average. He also relates how living in our psychologized culture affects therapy, and how it can get tricky when therapist and client are at different levels of development. Mark's vast knowledge and big heart shine through the many topics he delves into and his tales of actual therapeutic encounters are eye opening and moving. This is an impassioned, courageous conversation on the front lines of mental health and psychotherapy.
