What Does Science Say
As a dedicated and mindful medicine provider, we believe deeply in rooting our practice in sturdy science and clinical data. Several studies have established the safety, efficacy, and therapeutic potential of 5-MeO-DMT and its myriad benefits. One 2019 peer-reviewed study investigating “5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine (5-MeO-DMT) used in a naturalistic group setting discovered it to produce unintended improvements in depression and anxiety”. Perhaps even more remarkable is these improvements are strongly correlated to the morphological benefits in the brain. For instance, one 2018 study found that a single dose of 5-MeO-DMT stimulates cell proliferation, neuronal survivability, morphological and functional changes in adult mice brains. Another also found that 5-MeO-DMT administration
Another scientific study in Frontiers in Psychology that found that 5-MeO-DMT administered in a psychospiritual retreat setting produced comparable ratings of mystical experience as a high-dose psilocybin session in the laboratory setting. Another study by Davis that came out last year in The Journal of Psychopharmacology showed that 5-MeO-DMT had a safe profile of use and low risk for health and legal consequences.One recent 2020 study even described how useful compounds like 5-MeO-DMT can help treat trauma-related psychological and cognitive impairment among US Special Operations Forces Veterans.
Finally, and perhaps most remarkably, the benefits of 5-MeO-DMT seem to be long-lasting, not simply fleeting, according to the data. One study in A single dose of 5-MeO-DMT produces rapid and persistent improvements in life satisfaction and psychopathological symptoms associated with sustained improvements in satisfaction with life, mindfulness, and a reduction of psychopathological symptoms. From neurogenesis (the ability to regrow neurons in the brain) to the powerful and long-lasting anti-depressant properties it induces, this is truly the medicine for our time.
