At the time of this writing there are fewer than three million searches for LSD PTSD Research-related content.
This is troubling.
PTSD is no joke, even if you have a few celebrities out there claiming to suffer from it because they “became too successful” (yes, for real).
Researchers have scrambled to resolve this issue for years, but most recently someone came up with an intriguing hypothesis:
Can vibrations be enough to help those suffering from PTSD get back in check?
Staff at the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center seem to think so.
They refer to it as “self-optimization“.
So far, it’s only been tested on 18 people, so the jury’s still out, but it makes for an intriguing alternative to anti-depressants.
Jacob’s Ladder or Lucy’s Sky of Diamonds?
Got that one friend on Facebook who’s pushing the idea that LSD is not a narcotic, but a legit therapy for mental health issues?

How can Acid combat PTSD?
All humans are saddled with a part of their brains known as the “lizard brain”, which is responsible for reactionary thinking.
At the center of the “lizard brain” is formally known as the amygdala, which generates fear and anxiety for the purpose of self-preservation.
It’s this part of the brain that aggravates PTSD, and leads to the generation of anxiety in situations that don’t warrant any need for worry.
Studies have been showing that LSD has been suppressing the amygdala, thereby relieving excessive anxiety.

Allen Ginsburg. Ken Kesey. Hunter S. Thompson. Aldous Huxley.
Many high-profile outsiders and musicians contributed to the popularization of LSD.
However, it was silver-screen icon, Carey Grant who really put LSD on the narco-map.
Grant used it for therapeutic reasons, but it wasn’t long before it’s recreational benefits were discovered.
Psilocybin, better known as magic mushrooms (LSD’s organic cousin) is also being considered for its ability to unlock suppressed emotions and trauma.
