In today’s episode we welcome author, psychiatrist/psychopharmacologist, Julie Holland, MD to discuss why we need connection, how we’ve lost it, how we might find it again, and how psychedelics can help.
Holland takes us on a deep dive into the science behind psychedelic compounds that modulate neuroplasticity and how plant medicines are being used to effectively heal trauma and nurture connection. We discuss:
- How psychedelics rewire the brain
- The role of mindfulness and psychedelics in accessing parasympathetic states
- Hormones and love drugs for bonding, connection, and sexuality
- The power of MDMA to promote healing through connection with others
Psychedelics induce a temporary neuroplastic state in the brain, making it more impressionable and open to input. - Julie Holland, MD
Listen in now as we explore the exciting research surrounding psychedelic medicine and connection.
