How Psychedelics Impact Headaches

Buy psychedelics mushroom online. The potential for psychedelics to treat mental health is no longer a secret held by counter culturalisms and underground therapists. Research from top universities has established the benefits of psychedelics for depression, addiction, PTSD, end-of-life care, and much more. But in an interesting side note, recent research shows that psychedelics users are significantly more likely to have greater overall physical health.

What, if anything, can we read into this?

A Connection to General Health?

It’s important to remember that correlation does not establish causation. In this context, psychedelic users being more physically healthy does not necessarily suggest that psychedelics were the direct cause of the improvement. It could be that those who are more health-conscious would be more likely to stumble upon and try psychedelics. Similarly, recent research indicates that the insights people gain from psychedelics may lead them to adopt a healthier lifestyle.

The mind and body exist in a closed circuit. All illness is going to involve physical symptoms that manifest in our consciousness. Treatments at the physical level have effects at the psychological level, and vice versa.

Having said that, a growing number of studies point to the effectiveness of psychedelics in treating various physical ailments that people do not usually associate with the psychological, such as headaches.

Psychedelics Treating Inflammatory Conditions

Inflammation is the body’s natural mechanism to protect us from harm. The process involves increased blood flow, proteins, and antibodies to the area of injury. Although the inflammatory response is critical to survival during injury, research has revealed that certain lifestyle factors including smoking, obesity, and chronic stress can lead to chronic inflammation (CI) which in turn can result in a wide array of serious diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and autoimmune and neurodegenerative disorders.

For that reason, it is particularly exciting that researchers have discovered evidence that psychedelics have potent anti-inflammatory properties. In fact, certain drugs targeting 5HT2A receptors (as psychedelics do) seem effective in treating a wide range of inflammatory conditions in rats, including asthma and coronary artery disease.

In addition, researchers have completed phase 1 clinical trials on psychedelics to treat Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases using LSD, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. The study demonstrated the safety and tolerability of 5-20 μg LSD in older healthy individuals.

The causes of headache disorders are not wholly understood. Studies such as this one have identified multiple brain regions to be involved in producing and maintaining headache attacks. It is therefore unsurprising that the mechanism of action of psychedelics to treat headache disorders is not totally clear either. However, in a lecture on headache disorders given at the recent Psych summit, Dr. Emmanuelle Schindler from the Yale School of Medicine suggested the following as areas worth exploring: hypothalamic and hormonal function, inflammatory systems, and circadian rhythms.
