Microdosing Set Up
Welcome to the world of Microdosing, a practice that can profoundly enhance your quality of life. Microdosing involves consuming a small fraction (usually 5-10%) of a regular dose of a psychedelic substance on a regular basis, with the intention of experiencing subtle yet transformative effects.
Unlike full psychedelic experiences, microdosing does not cause visual disturbances or intense hallucinations. Instead, it offers more nuanced and sub-hallucinogenic effects that can positively impact various aspects of your well-being. It is important to note that microdosing should not be practiced every day, as it is crucial to maintain a distinct energy boundary between yourself and the plant.
To maximize the benefits of microdosing, it is recommended to follow a well-structured dosing plan over an extended period of time. The outcomes of microdosing can vary significantly depending on factors such as the individual, the specific substance used, the dosage, diligent preparation, and regular check-in sessions.
When you schedule a session, I will guide you through the following:
• An in-depth intake evaluation to understand your unique needs and goals.
• Exploring the reasons behind your interest in microdosing and how it can benefit you.
• Assessing various aspects of your well-being, including energy levels, creativity, emotional state, current prescriptions, physical health, and heightened awareness.
• Providing you with a comprehensive 6-week plan tailored to your specific needs.
• Collaborating to create a schedule for sessions and check-in calls to ensure ongoing support and progress.
• Assisting you in finding the ideal strain that aligns with your desired outcomes.
• Clarifying the distinction between the placebo effect and the genuine impact of microdosing.
• Discussing the potential disadvantages and limitations of microdosing as a tool for personal growth and healing.
It is important to understand that microdosing is not a magical solution, but rather a valuable tool that can catalyze your journey towards self-discovery and empowerment. The benefits of microdosing are predominantly observed in reported improvements in mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. However, it is worth highlighting that the emotional realm is where microdosing truly shines, as it substantially increases the release of endorphins. Remember, the term “psychedelic” translates to “that which makes the mind visible,” and you may be pleasantly surprised by the profound impact even a small dose can have.
Embark on this transformative path of microdosing and take charge of your own life. Let us support you in harnessing the immense potential within you. Schedule a session today and discover the limitless possibilities that await you on your microdosing journey.
How does microdosing work?
What science is proving is that psychedelic substances act on the serotonin (5-HT) receptors in our brain. Serotonin receptors are found throughout our nervous system and govern many aspects of our being, including mood, thinking, and bowel movements. Psychedelics bind most effectively to the 5HT-2A receptor, which is one of the receptors involved in learning, memory, and cognition. As a result, when consuming only a micro dose of a psychedelic substance and thus avoiding the “classical trip or hero doses,” it is believed that the brain can focus solely on the cognitive boost caused by these receptors
Can Microdosing Be Combined With Medication or Supplements?
Many people wonder if microdosing can be combined with medication. This is one of the most frequently asked questions for researchers and experts in this field. There is a listing of medications that I have personally turned clients away for. This is why the intake or complementary call is so important.
It is important to:
·Always consult your doctor first if you plan to combine, stop, or phase out medications
·Remember: no one is currently knowledgeable enough in the field of microdosing to be able to advise you on the interactions of microdosing and your medications. If you want to taper off medications because you suspect that microdosing is a better alternative, always consult with your doctor and thoroughly research the pros and cons!
I want to be clear that this website, the informational & education does not substitute professional medical advice. I am still receiving hours as a Psychedelic Practitioner and my treatment plans are for healing and assistance. If you are seeking medical advice, diagnosing treatments, or medical healthcare professionals – I can try my best to point you in the right direction, however, I encourage you to do your own homework.
Microdosing while breastfeeding: How safe is it?
The number one reason why some moms may consider microdosing magic mushrooms or another substance (occasionally) while breastfeeding is for mental health support post-pregnancy. Usually intuitively know that taking responsibility for their mental health is more important than ever and the best interest of their baby in mind first – smart honest choice!
The huge concern is whether their child might be worse off if they transmit anxiety, stress, irritability or depression – either energetically or through breast milk – to their newborn.
Since this hasn’t been researched by Western science, and for common microdosing substances such as psilocybin at all, we have no access to definite answers. Personally, I believe one may have to be off the breast milk train to start, however, you are your own decision maker of your journey.
Psychiatric nurse practitioner C. J. Spotswood wrote in their book, The Microdosing Guidebook: A Step-by-Step Manual to Improve Your Physical and Mental Health through Psychedelic Medicine (2022):
Psilocin and psilocybin are eliminated through the kidneys, most of which occurs within the first 3 hours after oral ingestion and completely within 24hrs (Hasler et al., 2002). Due to dosage being a microdose, James Fadiman asserts that if individuals wait at least 6 hours between microdosing and breastfeeding there shouldn’t be any concerns (Morski, 2021). Additionally, there is no evidence that either substance is eliminated through breastmilk. Again, please talk with your medical provider about this. I am not saying it is 100% safe, but there is no research that supports or disproves safety concerns.
This suggests that microdoses of psychedelic substances can be metabolized and excreted within 24 hours. Extrapolating this to a breastfeeding mother – if a mother decides she needs to experiment with microdosing at this time due to her own health needs, then a suggestion could be:
1 . Only use small doses, 100mg/0.1 gr of psilocybin or less.
2. Follow the Fadiman protocol of 1 day on, two days off (or even less frequently, such as microdosing 2x per week)
3. On non-microdosing days, pump milk enough to last 24-36 hours to utilize during microdosing days.
4. For 24 hours after microdosing, pump and discard any milk produced during this period.
Please note that this protocol may minimize risk associated with microdosing while breastfeeding, but does not eliminate it. This is just friendly information and notes I have collected with my own research. I am not a physician.
