Coping Without Pharmaceuticals or Alcohol – Dana’s Story

I’ve experienced a lot of loss in the past years, had gotten out of a tough marriage, and now of course COVID … I had been doing therapy and am very resistant to taking pharmaceuticals. In the time leading up to this, I had begun overusing alcohol.

I had previously had a variety of experiences with psychedelic drugs when a friend suggested trying microdosing, including a small amount of mushrooms plus ginseng and some other herbal ingredients. I really liked the idea of an encapsulated standard dose.

It was subtle, but felt really nice, with a hint of the spiritual touchstone that I had experienced in larger doses. The next day, I woke up and felt somehow more stable than I had felt in weeks. 

Microdosing mushrooms has really supported healing. For me, mushrooms serve a similar function to meditation.
