In today's episode, we dive into two pre-clinical studies testing psychedelics' effectiveness in treating alcohol-related illnesses.
In the first, researchers tested psilocybin (magic mushrooms) on mice who got addicted to alcohol. They found that the psilocybin helped repair a part of their brain that alcohol abuse damaged. This helped the mice make less neurotic decisions, and helped them abstain from alcohol.
This is promising, and if it can be repeated in humans, it would be a huge step forward in treating alcoholism.
The second study looked at the Ayahuasca brew, which has as its main psychoactive ingredient DMT. In this study, the researchers found that the mice who took the ayahuasca were less likely to seek out more alcohol.
Again, if this can be replicated in humans, it would show the powerful benefits of psychedelic medicines to treat alcoholism.
Psychedelics and mental health have long been a topic of research, and we are finally getting data that psychedelics like psilocybin and DMT may be effective in treating a variety of mental health conditions, such as alcoholism.
