Microdosing mushrooms; My gateway to grounding and keeping depression at bay

Nicole, BC
Microdosing Mental Health

I am so grateful for the gifts of plant medicine. Psilocybin has a nurturing quality in how I relate to myself and life around me.

I had been on antidepressants for about four years while I underwent therapy to work through and understand the PTSD, depression, and anxiety that was prominent in my life. When I came to a point in my healing where I was ready to let go of the useful crutch of prescription medication, I started looking into natural remedies. It was an intense six month long process to ween off the meds and this was my primary focus. I was confronted with fears, alongside a belief in myself and that I could be supported on my journey of healing through other means.

Microdosing mushrooms as an antidepressant was suggested to me and I was excited to discover what small doses could do for me, being comforted knowing that mushrooms have always been a great teacher in my life. Depressed feelings still lingered and came in waves for me. They weren’t as intense as before, having done immense amounts of therapy and gained tools to manage, though I knew I needed to be mindful and take extra care when confronted with sadness and loss of inspiration and motivation; spiralling downward was not an option.

I clearly remember the first day I microdosed. I was carrying through my day as I usually do, scattered but getting things done, thoughts jumping to and fro, my body calling out to me to slow down or take a rest. On a typical day like this I would ignore my body’s callings; justify and reason to myself that I did not have time or convince myself that other things needed to take priority. But on this day, I actually stopped, sat down on my mat, took in the sounds of nature around me and breathed into my body. I paused and connected to myself. I remember how glorious this felt to nurture myself and was quietly assured with an inner knowing that this was the most beneficial thing I could be doing for myself. After about 20mins of meditation and stretching, I went back to my business feeling more recharged, grounded, and centred and noticed a significant change in how I was approaching my day. I felt really happy with myself for bringing attention to my body and breath and I was grateful to the microdose for helping me get where I truly needed to be.

Since then I have used microdosing periodically throughout my weeks and months. Sometimes I regularly use it every three days and at other times only once a week or every two weeks, but I know they are there for me and I know they help keep my depression at bay and connect me to my emotions. I encourage anyone wanting to deepen their relationship with self and enhance their connection to the world around them, to give microdosing a try. It continues to strengthen me and my connections to others and deepens my awareness of my needs, giving me clarity and motivation to pursue my heart’s desires.
