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?

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.
