Amber Lyon Exposes The Healing Powers of Hallucinogens

Journalist Abby Martin has reported an exclusive interview with former CNN journalist and investigative reporter, Amber Lyon, who recently traveled the world experimenting with psychedelic substances in order to cure her PTSD.  She is now touting their benefits while highlighting the dangers of many prescription medications.

The therapeutic potential for hallucinogens has actually existed since the late 1960s, when studies using LSD for treating alcoholics showed astounding recovery rates far beyond Alcoholics Anonymous.

Hallucinogens come in several broad categories: psychedelics, dissociatives, and deliriants.

These can cause changes in your emotion, thought, perception, and consciousness.

They help to induce experiences that are qualitatively different from those of ordinary consciousness, these experiences are often referred to as a trance, dreams, meditation, or even insanity.

Psychedelics includes drugs that offer perception-altering effects such as LSD, psilocybin, DMT, 2C-B, mescaline, DOB, and others. The related dissociatives differ in that they produce a sense of detachment from the surrounding environment. Symptoms can include the disruption of integrated functions of consciousness, perception, memory, or identity.

Another catagory, deliriants, induce a state of delirium in the user, offering a state of confusion most often, and an inability to control one’s actions. Included in this group are several plants such as Jimson weed (stramonium), mandrake (mandragora officinarum), Angel’s Trumpet (Brugmansia species), and more.

In her recent article How Psychedelics Saved My Life, Lyon exposes the false propaganda surrounding these drugs, claiming that the public has been largely misled about psychedelics.

“These non-addictive substances- MDMA, ayahuasca, ibogaine, psilocybin mushrooms, peyote, and many more- are proven to rapidly and effectively help people heal from trauma, PTSD, anxiety, addiction and depression.” stated Lyon. She claims that she was first made aware of the potential healing powers of psychedelics as a former guest on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast back in October of 2012.

One of the substances Lyon experimented with was Ayahuasca, which is a medicinal tea containing the psychedelic compound dimethyltryptamine (DMT) and an MAOI to make it work. “The brew is rapidly spreading around the world after numerous anecdotes have shown the brew has the power to cure anxiety, PTSD, depression, unexplained pain, and numerous physical and mental health ailments” affirmed Lyon.

After taking the tea, paints a vivid picture of her experience;

“It was as if I was viewing a film of my entire life, not as the emotional me, but as an objective observer. The vividly introspective movie played in my mind as I relived my most painful scenes- my parents divorce when I was just 4 years-old, past relationships, being shot at by police while photographing a protest in Anaheim and crushed underneath a crowd while photographing a protest in Chicago. The ayahuasca enabled me to reprocess these events, detaching the fear and emotion from the memories. The experience was akin to ten years of therapy in one eight-hour ayahuasca session.” – Lyon.

The most common drugs currently used to help treat PTSD are Zoloft, Prozac, Celexa, Lexapro, Paxil, Pexeva, and others. These drugs are classed as selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors or serotonin-specific reuptake inhibitor (SSRIs). They are commonly used over long periods to help treat depression, and some personality disorders, as well as anxiety disorders. Currently more than 1 in 10 people in the U.S. take SSRIs. With women being 2.5x more likely to take antidepressants than men.

These drugs can also increase your risk of heart disease and stroke, and risk permenantly altering brain chemistry in sometimes unexpected ways. Other side effects can include suicidal thoughts and feelings, violent behavior, problems during pregnancy, brittle bones, and more.

Although natural hallucinogens are not perfect, they do not require long term application to provoke major changes and have been shown in to be useful in treating trauma (even for mice). They should be used responsibly with respect to setting and dose. They can be used to great benefit and spiritual cleaning, but they can also lead to traumatic experiences themselves if not used responsibly. The type of hallucinogen use discussed in this text is in reference to their use in the aid of discussion and reflection, and not in regard to their use beyond those parameters.
