#108 PART VII of Altered States. It's Entheogenic Pathways to Recovery with Danielle Negrin from the San Francisco Psychedelic Society! Maegan and Danielle discuss the pitfalls of the medical model and the irresponsible prescribing practices by many physicians that lead Danielle down a dark path of psychiatric cocktails comprised of pills like antidepressants, stimulants, and opioids, which caused her suicidal thoughts and ongoing depression. Danielle shares how entheogenic substances, namely psychedelic plant medicines like Ayahuasca and psilocybin, helped her heal from the years of drug-fueled pain.
