Mindbloom’s Mastermind Series Launch: Mindbloom, a prominent provider of psychedelic medicine, announced the launch of its Mastermind Series, the first expert-led psychedelic therapy programs aimed at addressing heartbreak, burnout, and other mental health challenges. This series integrates specialized teachings with ketamine therapy to enhance neuroplasticity and promote lasting change. Programs include six ketamine therapy sessions, expert-led content for preparation and integration, practical tools like exercises and meditations, as well as one-on-one coaching and group sessions. The first program is led by Dr. Guy Winch, focusing on recovery from emotional injuries in personal, professional, and romantic contexts.
Clearmind Medicine’s Pre-Clinical Trial Results: Clearmind Medicine Inc. reported positive results from its pre-clinical trial on a proprietary psychedelic treatment targeting obesity and metabolic disorders. The treatment combines MEAI, a novel psychedelic substance, with Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA), an anti-inflammatory agent. The trial observed the effects of various dosages on metabolic parameters like fat oxidation, weight loss, and reduced appetite in animals. The combination treatment showed promising results in increasing metabolic processes and fat oxidation, as well as reducing appetite and meal sizes, without affecting the animals’ viability.
Psilocybin Research for Eating Disorders: Recent studies indicate psilocybin, a naturally occurring psychedelic compound, has the potential to treat eating disorders (EDs). One case study reported mood enhancement, insight into her symptoms, long-term weight resolution and body image improvements following treatment with this natural medicine. Another research paper concluded psilocybin was safe and tolerable among women suffering from anorexia nervosa while also helping alleviate their body image concerns. Despite these promising results, the field faces challenges like small and non-diverse sample sizes and the need for more controlled research to establish optimal therapeutic frameworks for EDs. These developments underscore the expanding scope and potential of psychedelic medicine in addressing a range of mental health and metabolic disorders, while also highlighting the need for ongoing research and careful implementation.
