Why More Moms are Microdosing

As research is starting to uncover the unparalleled benefits of psychedelic assisted therapy more and more people  are starting to integrate alternative medicine approaches into their wellness routine. 

As it’s becoming more popular to practice Microdosing, many moms have introduced it as a natural remedy seeking relief for some of the challenges faced in motherhood. It’s not so much being used as an escape like some would commonly turn to wine, or prescription drugs, but rather a way to be more present with their children to fuel a deeper connection.

Herbs and Plant Based Medicine

Plants are our best friends. Nearly every substance with a potent medicinal function is made in plants and is often the inspiration for many drugs we see used in medicine today. The things plants do better than any drug out there. Complex, full spectrum doses of medicinal compounds allows for strong, lasting effects with minimal side effects. If you are looking for other natural ways to support your cognitive function and mental health, herbal medicine will be a vital tool in your so-called “health tool belt”. 

Microdosing + Meditation

The intention of meditation is to practice fully tuning into to the moment.  With presence comes heightened awareness of your surroundings. The benefits of microdosing can support both of these.

It aids in focusing during meditation by promoting concentrated performance and sustained attention. This is imperative to meditation as part of the practice is learning how to focus your mind away from all the mental chatter and into current consciousness. Microdosing supports in training your mind to easily switch into focus mode.

Nootropic and Brain Protective Supplements

Supplements are exactly what the name implies, a means to supplement a regular diet. Unfortunately, even most people who tried to eat a wholesome and nutritious diet may still be missing vital nutrients in their diet. This is simply due to the fact that many plants grow in nutrient deficient soils and the limited amount of foods we have access to in a typical grocery store. 

Our Favorite Ways to Benefit Our Overall Health and Wellbeing

Let’s dive into some of our favorite ways to benefit our overall health and wellbeing and in turn a peaceful, balanced state of mind. 

1. Stay Well Hydrated 

Water is essential to help break up stagnation, mobilize toxins, and effectively excrete them from our kidneys. Water is, of course, essential for life. Humans today, in general, do not drink enough water on a regular basis and may go their whole lives in a dehydrated state. Dehydration shows up in many ways in our lives and can often lead to feelings of hunger, fatigue, depression, disorientation, and lightheadedness. If we wish to allow our body to heal itself and optimize it’s systems it must be given ample, high quality hydration, every single day.

Microdosing, It’s A Lifestyle

If you are like most of us who are microdosing you are doing it to help boost your creativity, presence, insight, and clearance of old patterns that no longer serve us. If you haven’t been microdosing, you’ve surely heard a bit about it by now. 

The benefits seem almost too good to be true, given the minimal side effects and high efficacy when compared to their synthetic drug counterparts who strive to achieve the same beneficial outcomes. So how is it that microdosing psychedelic substances can produce such potent and lasting effects with such subtlety?

Benefits Of Microdosing

Larger, therapeutic doses, have been shown to promote functional and structural neuronal plasticity (i.e., the ability of the brain to form new neural connections) (3). Specifically, the active compound in magic mushrooms has been shown to cause neurogenesis (formation of new neurons) in the hippocampus, a part of the brain integral to learning and memory (4). Brain scans after ingestions showed that claustrum (the ego center) had marked decreased activity, meaning the area of the brain believed responsible for setting attention and switching tasks is turned down when on the drug. Researchers say that this central nervous system phenomenon is what is responsible for creating the perception of being interconnected to the world and energies surrounding an individual (6)

Is Microdosing Right For Me?

There’s currently a lot of buzz going around about the benefits of integrating alternative medicine approaches, like microdosing psychedelics, into personal wellness routines. If you’re considering trying it,  here are some things to ponder to decide if microdosing is a good fit for you. 

Are you ready for a meaningful shift in your life? When approached with care and attention microdosing has the potential to rewire thought patterns out of default mode and into new ways of thinking. It aids in shining light on habits, behaviors, thoughts, and relationships that are no longer serving you to show you how you can move forward past them and into a space of conscious choices to align with the higher vibration in which you are seeking.

How To Microdose

The most common barrier individuals will face when looking to begin experimenting with microdosing is a lack of a trusted source. 

Of course there’s certain equipment such as a milligram scale, capsules, and grinders one may need in order to make a microdose once they get some psychedelic substances into their possession. Sometimes you may get lucky and find pre-made products, but as people rush to capitalize on the emerging market it may be preferential, and safer to make products for yourself so you know exactly what’s in it.

Microdosing Defined

“The ingestion of a substance, typically considered psychedelic in nature, at such low doses that they don’t trigger hallucinations or altered states of consciousness.”

A typical microdose is considered to be one tenth or one twentieth of standard dose. Ex. If you would consume around 2 grams of mushrooms for an enjoyable “trip”, a microdose in relation to that microdose would be considered 100 or 200 mg.
