I this episode:
Coach Olie Thomas talks us through his knowledge of psychedelic compounds, their study in clinical trials, interesting historical past, uses and recent developments and the renewed interest in them by university trials over the past 20 years.
During 1950-1965 up to 1000 studies were conducted on more than 40,000 participants into the effects of psychedelic compounds.
Ram Dass, Timothy Leary and more established writers pivoted to the front of this field of interest.
However, cultural change and legal policy during the 1960s saw this branch of plant based psychedelics grouped in with prohibited drugs and clinical research halted thereafter for more than 30 years.
Olie explains the recent renewal in interest in these compounds for the treatment of conditions such as anxiety, depression and more.
He speaks about his own journey will mental illness and his personal recovery from it with the uses of these compounds.
We discuss the ethics of their use, what their new role might be in modern medicine and also explore the parallel branch of psychedelics which is rooted in spiritual growth.
This podcast is our most explorative to date and we understand that it is a step away from our more conventional topics.
We hope you enjoy the discussion on this episode and you can reach out to Olie with your questions via his social media or the profound fitness website.
