The Resurgence of Psychedelics in Medicine

There has been a flurry of articles in the media recently touting the successful use of psychedelics in medicine. Tim Ferriss, the New-York Times bestselling author, blogger, and angel investor, whose podcast has over 200 million downloads, recently interviewed Michael Pollan about his new book on the emerging science of psychedelics in what Ferriss dubbed “the most important podcast episode  I’ve put out in the last two years”.

Ferriss is so passionate about this topic that he has publicly committed to donating a million dollars of his own money to support the scientific study of psychedelic compounds.

Examples of the emerging successful use of these compounds in medicine include ketamine for depression, PTSD, anxiety, and chronic pain, MDMA for psychotherapy and PTSD, psilocybin for cluster headaches and terminal cancer patients, and Ibogaine for drug addiction.

Here in the front range of Northern Colorado, local journalist Reilly Capps recently published an interesting article on the topic as well.

Indeed, ketamine infusions are not voodoo medicine, not fringe science, rather they truly are a paradigm-shifting revolution.
