The Medicinal Herb Info site was created to help educate visitors about the often forgotten wisdom of the old ways of treating illnesses. Many of today's drugs and medicines were originally derived from natural ingredients, combinations of plants and other items found in nature.

We are not suggesting that you ignore the help of trained medical professionals, simply that you have additional options available for treating illnesses. Often the most effective treatment involves a responsible blend of both modern and traditional treatments.

We wish you peace and health!

Recent Research Shows That Psilocybin Mushrooms May Be Effective in Treating Major, Prolonged Depression

Psilocybin MushroomA lot has been reported lately about the potential for Psilocybin Mushrooms to help treat major depression. Multiple universities worldwide have been doing research studies into the effects of psilocybin on people with prolonged and profound depression. They have been discovering some amazing things about it.

In a controlled, clinical environment, under careful supervision, researchers have administered psilocybin to people with devere depression and have found that it not only increases the person’s sense of wellbeing, but it reduces depression and has long-lasting effects. They even see that it seems to “rewire the brain’s neurons.”

If this proves to be true, major depression may become much more treatable. Of course, in many countries, the use of psilocybin is still illegal, so for the present time, anyone wishing to try psilocybin for depression should contact a research study using it, or travel to a country/location where it is legal.

The research so far looks very exciting and it should be interesting to see how the study progresses and what it discovers. If you want to learn more about Psilocybin Mushrooms, check out the full page I have added to this site. (It also includes links to resources that provide instructions and warnings for people interested in trying them.) I am also offering you this extensive list of links to research studies and other relevant information:
