We talk to Dr. Reid Robinson about use of psychedelics in psychiatry. According to Dr. Robinson, "Psychedelic medicine is here, and as a psychiatrist, I think it’s long overdue. We are in the midst of a mental health crisis, with over a million lives lost in the world each year to suicide. This is especially tragic, because depression is treatable, even if the individual can’t see a way out at the time. About 1 in every 8 Americans takes an antidepressant medication every day, but this hasn’t lowered our depression rates – these meds just don’t work that well for too many people, and modern life is just making things worse. We’re evolutionarily adapted for the stone age, but we’re living out our lives in a sedentary, indoor, screen-addicted modern age, and that doesn’t sit well with our souls. To top things off, many of our natural remedies are disappearing, such as good sleep, deep friendships, real food, and physical activity."     SHOW LESS
