Show Notes

In the 21st Century, experts predict the growth of mental health treatments using psychedelics for clinical treatment of disorders such as depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, anxiety, and other challenges. Blossoming out of an extensive body of well-respected research, medical professionals are now using psychedelics as a tool for treatment-resistant disorders where pharmaceuticals may have failed to provide people with long-term healing. Today, ketamine is a legal and broadest available treatment option, while psilocybin and MDMA are on their path to gaining legal status in the U.S.

In this episode, we discuss the extensive research and potential benefits that can be achieved with ketamine with Ronan Levy from Field Trip Health.

In the Earthlings podcast, we talk about the challenges and opportunities coming in the 21st Century, and the information we have today to make better decisions for tomorrow. Hosts Lisa Ann Pinkerton (former award-winning NPR and PBS environmental science reporter) and Christian Roselund (founding editor of PV Magazine USA) take a close look at our relationships with technology, science, the planet, and each other.
