Psilocybin May Help Some Who Battle Anorexia

TUESDAY, Aug. 1, 2023 (HealthDay News) -- One dose of the hallucinogenic ingredient in "magic mushrooms" may help some people with anorexia move past their preoccupation with body image, an early study suggests. The study, of just 10 women with anorexia, tested the effects of a single dose of psilocybin plus psychological counseling sessions. Researchers found that the treatment appeared safe, with patients rating the experience as a positive one. And within three months, four of 10 women had a significant improvement in their eating disorder "pathology." That meant certain eating-disorder behaviors — including preoccupation with weight and body shape — improved to the degree that they were close to what's typical of people without an eating disorder. ...

Landmark trial to treat debilitating grief with magic mushrooms

A world-first Queensland trial is to use an ingredient from “magic mushrooms” to treat prolonged and overwhelming grief. QIMR Berghofer researchers are leading the landmark trial of a new psychedelic treatment in combination with psychotherapy. It will be first time psilocybin, a psychedelic compound found in about 200 species of mushroom, will be used in the grief project. Psilocybin has already been approved in Australia for use in relation to treatment-resistant depression. Up to 15 participants are being sought for the pilot study, which will investigate whether the new treatment is acceptable to and safe for people with prolonged grief, specifically in people who have lost a loved one to any form of cancer.

Psilocybin-assisted therapy may provide more cost-effective solution to treating major depression disorder

A new study by leading academics in the psychedelics space finds that psilocybin combined with therapy could be more cost-effective at treating major depression disorders than currently used methods. The study, ‘Cost-effectiveness of psilocybin-assisted therapy for severe depression: exploratory findings from a decision analytic model’, published by Cambridge University Press, found that when psilocybin was costed at £1200 and combined with therapy from one therapist, the cost of treatment was £5239. Psilocybin-based treatment was also found to provide stronger returns in terms of the quality of life of patients following treatment, with psilocybin’s treatment returning a QALY nearly 10% larger than the next most effective treatment, CBT.

Could ‘magic mushrooms’ be legal in RI? House vote brings it one step closer.

Legislation to legalize so-called "magic mushrooms" cleared the Rhode Island House of Representatives on Monday. Lawmakers voted 54-11 to pass an amended version of House Bill 5923, introduced by Rep. Brandon Potter, D-Cranston. The bill would make it legal to possess up to one ounce of psilocybin. It would also allow the drug to be prescribed to patients with "a serious or life-threatening mental or behavioral health disorder," if the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approves such uses. Psilocybin was banned in the 1970s, but is now seen as a promising treatment for PTSD, depression, and other mental health disorders. Since then, Oregon and Colorado have legalized the use of psilocybin under supervision. Keep reading at The Providence Journal
