|OCD is one of the most common mental illnesses, affecting about 2% of the world's population at some point in their lives. This could be due to underlying conditions such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. In an attempt to find the right treatment for OCD, psilocybin proves to be a great alternative. While conventional therapies help OCD patients break habits through resistance, magic mushrooms treat the problem from the root causes. This may include brain activation, brain rewiring, or a combination of the two to relieve symptoms. Magic mushrooms also assist users in self-interaction, which provides perception and focus on new habits that gradually bring about behavioral change.|
Mushrooms can stimulate the growth of brain cells.
Psilocybin really improves brain connectivity and overall brain health. A University of South Florida study shows that when psilocybin was injected into mice induced by fear, it overcame the fear and threat. What's more, research has shown that magic mushrooms speed up brain cell growth and brain cell regeneration. Mushrooms bind brain receptors that promote the growth of new brain cells and the formation of short-term memory. While there is growing evidence of how psychedelics increase brain cell growth, this breakthrough is still in its infancy.
