Although limited in number, the first sociological studies of microdosing have revealed fascinating results. Of course it is not a miracle cure or solution for all your problems, but it definitely can be used as a tool for personal growth.
After you take your dose of a psychedelic, you will notice some positive effects which you can enjoy until the substance has left your body. Those are the immediate effects of microdosing that will stay for at least 48 hours.
Three large-scale studies involving approximately 1500 to 6000 participants show some promising results. 50% to 60% of the subjects reported a better mood as one of the main advantages. They feel more positive, less depressed and less anxious. Due to less self-critical thoughts they become more confident and have the feeling that they can handle things well.
As a consequence there is more room for feeling a deep connection with your surroundings and paying attention to your senses. Besides, you are able to focus on the task at hand and live the moment.
Perhaps you wonder how microdosing succeeds in this? We expect that a small dose makes our default mode network less active. This network of interacting brain regions is normally activated when we are daydreaming. By partially suppressing that proces, there is room for the attention networks to become more active. In this way you will get easier in your zone, be better at solving problems and you will be able to enhance your cognitive performance.
Medical benefits of microdosing
In addition to the immediate effects, research also shows some physical benefits. Microdosing can prevent headache, migraine and hair loss. Furthermore, some subjects indicated that it would help against premenstrual pains and complaints.
Researchers also expect that a small dose of a premium truffle will help you to recover faster after a stroke, to counter an allergy and to reduce pain from inflammation.
Therapeutic benefits of microdosing
No less than 1 billion people worldwide suffer from mental health disorders, including anxiety, depression, addictions and many more. In that way, microdosing appears to have a therapeutic influence. It can be seen as a revolutionary treatment for several disorders such as anorexia, ADHD and OCD.
As you can see, microdosing has many advantages. Many of them have not been clinically studied yet. But we are sure that much more benefits will be mapped out in the future, when research progresses.
Finally we would also like to point out that the best results are obtained when you combine microdosing with additional therapy or coaching which is exactly what Aydoo would love to help you with.
