New research shows that substances with psychedelic side effects, such as MDMA and LSD, can be utilized to curb the mental processes that cause severe depression, anxiety, and PTSD.

While SSRI’s and other similar medications have varying levels of success in relation to the treatment of depression, anxiety, and other mental health concerns, there are still some individuals who see little to no assistance. Because of that, doctors and patients have been trying some non-traditional ways with which to treat depression, PTSD, and anxiety.

Psychedelic substances have a particular reputation, and because of that, doctors have avoided trying to utilize them for many years. But, with the help of individuals like PTSD Engineer, there are more and more people seeking out these less well-known options for their depression and PTSD symptoms.

Recently, PTSD Engineer put together an article for Medium to explain his journey with psychedelics to treat his PTSD and to reduce suicidal ideation. He takes a lot of time to express that this is about more than getting high.

In most cases, psychedelics are used alongside psychotherapy to help individuals work through traumatic experiences. The dose is taken, and then the individual will have 2-3 hour psychotherapy sessions that are easier for them physically and mentally because of the influence of the psychedelic substance.

Further study and research are in progress. Initial results look very promising.

PTSD Engineer is a website that helps individuals work alongside their doctors to find what PTSD treatment works best for them. Started by a blogger who has PTSD himself. The site is filled with resources that help to protect people and their health while dealing with PTSD, depression, and other mental health disorders.
