  • The Future of Trauma Therapy

    5-meo-DMT-assisted Psychedelic Trauma Therapy

    I’m so excited to share with you some mind-blowing information, quite literally.  In case you haven’t heard, the next wave in mental health is psychedelic-assisted therapy, and it has arrived here in Dallas.

    Initially, when I heard about psychedelic-assisted therapy, it didn’t appeal to me because it brought up notions of nausea and fear. But I was intrigued with the groundbreaking developments and eventually, about three years ago, I began to investigate plant medicine more in earnest.

    This is when I realized that plant medicine ceremonies have been healing people for thousands of years. The treatment involves serving sacraments such as psilocybin (‘magic mushrooms” aka “‘shrooms”), peyote, and ayahuasca. Ayahuasca contains the chemical DMT which is an endogenous chemical in humans.  Similar in nature, but slightly different chemically is 5-meo-DMT which is harvested from the bufo alvarius, a toad found in the Sonoran desert. In ayahuasca form, this brewed compound has a significantly longer effect on the user and comes with more undesirable side effects, such as purging.

    That’s why I specialize in “bufo” aka “toad venom” which is, in my opinion, a more desirable option. It is a short-acting yet incredibly powerful experience considered safe and effective.  Before you grab your party hat, let me reassure you that this is not a party kind of “trip”.  This is an internal deep dive, which simultaneously transports you into your innermost psyche and sends you to space and the heavens beyond.

    Speaking of heaven, this brings up one of the core tenets of why entheogenic healing is so incredibly powerful. Part of our experience as human beings involves questioning the world around us, determining our purpose and asking why we are here.  Through careful preparation of sacred set and setting, we can effectuate mystical experiences which facilitate awe-inspiring transformative processes that answer life’s most substantive mysteries. The more profound the experience, the greater the clinical outcome. Frankly, it is difficult for me to imagine a more spiritual or religious experience than the toad.

    To understand more about the link between spirituality/religion and psychedelics,  check out this video on psychedelic spirituality with Hunt Priest.

     

    Although I was more than skeptical, I decided to give it a try because I had witnessed the significant and lasting transformation it had on a dear friend of mine.

    So, I went for it, and in short, it changed my life.  

    I was immediately blown away.

    You can see the video footage from my indescribable journey here. With the possible exception of the births of my children, I have never had such a powerful experience.

    There are so many exciting things about this new way to treat mental health issues. It has lasting and effective research-backed outcomes such as an improved sense of well-being for even treatment-resistant depression. It also treats OCD and severe addiction.   

    Let me briefly summarize how psychedelics work. Imagine your brain as a snow-covered mountain and the skiers as your thoughts, embedding themselves deeper into the snow, just like your repetitive thoughts become well-worn grooves in your mind. These thoughts and behaviors become a cycle with patterns that are hard to change from years of wiring and firing those pathways. The grooves are so entrenched that it becomes difficult to create new ways of thinking and behaving.  The psychedelic acts as a fresh coat of snow to cover those previous tracks of ingrained habits and allow new, varied, and diverse patterns to occur. Your brain is suddenly communicating in ways that it hasn’t communicated before because novel pathways are being created. This is huge! In more technical language, the psychedelic is acting to increase synaptic connectivity and also increase neuronal growth.  (This is why DMT is being used with stroke victims and MMA fighters to increase neuroplasticity)

    Groundbreaking Therapeutic Benefits

    Psychedelics, and in particular, my specialty of bufo alvarius,(“bufo”) have a multitude of benefits.  The first is that the deep subconscious is being accessed, unlike SSRIs which only treat depressive symptoms, and fail to address the root of the problem itself. The second feature is that it allows the user to experience a vastly deeper sense of connection to self and spirituality which is both powerful and extraordinary.  This indescribable experience will undoubtedly be something that you will remember for the rest of your life.  It’s truly transformative. There aren’t many things that promise instantaneous results, but bufo/toad venom/5-meo-DMT delivers in a big way.  

    And now is your chance to experience something that heals the past and creates a new future.

    Last Week with John Oliver Clip

    Even John Oliver has reported about DMT/Toad venom/5-meO-DMT

    “Recently my wife and I had a 5-meo-DMT therapy journey.  While our journeys were very different, we both had life-changing experiences. Our journeys have brought us even closer and allowed both of us to continue our forward progression in our hope to obtain an overall level of wellness and to reconnect.  If you have been ‘called’ to join her, do not pass go.  She will facilitate a level of healing otherwise unattainable!  Thank you, Ashley, we are forever indebted to you!  Respectfully, B & E”

    “The most profound experience that I’ve ever had.  Period. The medicine has helped to open my experience to new depths of understanding and knowlesge.  It has helped me to remove my anxieties and bouts with depression that weren’t curable in traditional clinical settings.

    In my opinion, everyone should do “the toad”. Your life will change for the better and there is hope for a better tomorrow because I’ve experienced it for myself.”

    Thanks, Ashley, for being brave and courageous enough to bring this experience to me!! Love you!!

    J.W.”
