Drug policy calls for reform around the world as perceptions change and stigma fades, preparing people for a long-awaited renaissance that re-examines the way we think about hallucinogens.
The psychedelic community is leading the charge for this reformation, educating people about substances like MDMA, psilocybin, LSD and ketamine and the powerful transformative effect they can have on a person’s life.
MY personal well-beingit’s Lighter: a ketamine experiment is one of the first documentaries of its kind, examining how people can use the healing benefits of ketamine to accomplish a complete mental reset.
With experience treating depression, anxiety, trauma/PTSD, chronic pain, and more, MY Self Wellness serves patients nationwide, opening their eyes to alternative avenues of treatment. for the best mental outcome.
They aim to open the eyes of many more through their documentary, an hour-long feature film that explores the life journeys of three people struggling with the ongoing effects of anxiety, trauma and addiction.
The documentary follows these individuals as they engage in ketamine therapy at MY Self Wellness, reaping life-changing results they want to tell the world about.
“I have suffered from depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress in the past, and I self-medicated with alcohol. I never thought I could alleviate this,” said the ambassador of the Charles Patti brand.
“If it wasn’t for psychedelics, I wouldn’t be having this conversation today. It was really the catalyst that changed my whole life.
The clinic was founded by President Christina Thomas, a psychedelics advocate whose mission is to share the restorative benefits of ketamine with anyone experiencing mental, emotional, and/or physical distress.
Thomas suffered from PTSD when she first experimented with psychedelics (ketamine, MDMA and DMT) therapeutically.
“I didn’t realize how badly I suffered from PTSD. At the time, I always pushed it to the back of my mind, but through my psychedelic experience, I was allowed to let that go, and it started me on this new path with Charles,” said Thomas.
Both Patti and Thomas knew they were taking an incredible leap of faith when they quit their ‘normal’ 9am-5pm jobs to pursue careers in psychedelics, but it was a risk they considered both as absolutely worth it.
After his experiments with therapeutic doses of psilocybin, MDMA and ketamine, Patti was convinced that this new method of treatment would be life changing and he was ready to spread the word.
“I sat down with Christina and said, look, if I’ve been through twenty years of misery and it saved my life, then I’m too passionate not to help other people. I asked her to take that leap of faith with me, and she did,” Patti said.
“Then it was like the synchronicity of the universe allowed everything to fall into place so quickly.”
Patti and Thomas opened their establishment a week before the world was locked down by COVID, which meant the odds of success were completely stacked against them. However, the couple remained positive, forging and growing the clinic into what it is today.
“More than two and a half years later, we’ve performed thousands of treatments, helping around 400 people along the way,” Patti said.
“We helped people get away from antidepressants, antipsychotics, illicit drugs and alcohol. We have an incredibly high success rate in keeping people away from pharmaceutical drugs for good.
Lighter: a ketamine experiment delves into the experiences of Thomas and Patti, with testimonials from psychedelic professionals Dr. Michelle Weiner and Dustin Robinson, Esq. PCA to further validate their claims, as well as anecdotal evidence from the three people who underwent ketamine treatment.
The documentary begins by exploring the severe effects of depression across much of the globe, drawing attention to the fact that most pharmaceutical drugs are just band-aids for open wounds that run much, much deeper.
“A lot of people are hurting, and a lot of the hurt is related to trauma,” Weiner says in the documentary.
Rather than exploring what is the root of the trauma for patients in need, our current healthcare system operates in a cold and careless manner, throwing pills at the problem and hoping it will resolve itself along the way.
Experts in the field of psychedelics are well aware of this gap in treatment and how detrimental it can be to a patient’s healing process.
“With these pharmaceutical drugs, people are forced to take one pill every day for the rest of their lives and then they have to take two more pills to prevent side effects from the first pill. They are never able to solve their problems,” Patti said.
“Psychedelic therapy is very different. People repair and heal past traumatic experiences – allowing them to be processed, released and let go for good. We are actually getting to the root of why people suffer in the first place. »
This is the mission of MY Self Wellness: to empower clients to take charge of their own healing journey while the clinic accompanies them along the way.
“We’re never going to say to a patient, ‘You’re broken and that’s how I’m going to heal you.’ We really want to work together and share this experience,” said Thomas.
The clinic incorporates other wellness techniques into their treatments, teaching patients how to use meditation, breathwork, and other recipes for long-term success they can achieve on their own.
“We have people who have these divine experiences, saying they’ve met God or talked to dead relatives. People will go out into the cosmos and meditate – a woman in treatment said she was meditating with Buddha and Jesus during of his experience,” Patti said.
“For me, psychedelic medicine has given me the ability to love myself enough to actually want to change my life. We want to share that with everyone we can.
Of course, Patti and Thomas don’t see psychedelic treatment as a panacea. Instead, it is a powerful foundational tool to put patients on the right path as they take charge of their healing process.
“In society, we are taught not to accept our emotions; we just delete them,” Thomas said.
She recalls that a few years ago she wanted to post videos of herself doing motivational talks on Facebook.
“My mom was embarrassed about it. She didn’t want me to talk shit, and a lot of parents are like that. They don’t want us showing our luggage, but that’s what made us the adults we are today,” Thomas said.
“These are things we have to work on, otherwise they will continue to hold us back in life. If we can just let these things go, we can be in a much more stable place mentally.
The psychedelic experience allows people to do just that: go back and relive traumatic experiences as an objective third party, allowing patients to relive and release those negative emotions in a real way.
However, Thomas warns anyone interested in psychedelic treatment to make sure they properly check out the clinic of their choice beforehand.
“A lot of places dispense medication without really integrating the full experience. Some clinics don’t even offer therapy, and that’s an important part of the process,” Thomas said.
“Medicine can and will open you up, and it can bring up a lot of feelings that you may not be ready to handle on your own. We will soon be creating a Ketamine Coalition – a nationwide group of clinics that have been tested and approved for safety and true healing.
