Meet “Sue”, a 35 year old woman who has found new life thanks to magic mushrooms. “I haven’t had this much energy in years. In fact, it was the polar opposite. But now – my mood, my energy, my outlook on life has changed for the better. And all thanks to magic mushrooms? It feels too remarkable to be true, but that appears to be the case.”


When Sue was 25, she experienced serious depression for the first time and was unsure what was going on because it was so intense. She stopped sleeping and struggled with her work as a research analyst.

That first bout of depression lasted a year but once the chronic period lifted, she still felt low most of the time. After speaking to her doctor about how she was feeling, she was given anti-depressants. She describes feeling numb while taking them.

So, at the beginning of this year, even though she was taking a higher dose of SSRI than before when things got even worse, she decided to try something else. She did try mindfulness and therapy which helped but the pain was still very present.

We are so happy for “Sue” and hope to see more reseach done so more people can be helped.
