Psychiatrist becomes Psychedelic Researcher

Dr. Julie Holland, MD; Pat Macpherson, Ananda (DBM), Dhr. Seven (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

What the H is wrong with me! What's the cure?
A psychiatrist becomes a psychedelic researcher to explore the science of "connection" — why we need it, how we’ve lost it, and how we might find it again.

We are suffering from an epidemic of disconnection that antidepressants (Zoloft, Prozac, Wellbutrin, SSRIs, and other allopathic toxins) and social media can’t fix.

Good Chemistry (Dr. Holland)
This state of isolation puts us in “fight or flight, freeze or faint mode,” deranging sleep, metabolism, and libido.

What’s worse, we’re paranoid of others! This kill-or-be-killed mentality is no way to live. But when we feel safe and loved, we can rest, digest, and repair. We can heal.

And it is only in this state of feeling like we belong that we can open up to connection with others.

If I were a tabby cat on a tab of catnip.
In this powerful book Dr. Julie Holland M.D. helps us understand the science of connection as revealed in human experiences from the spiritual to the psychedelic, from the mental to the entheogenic.

The key is oxytocin — a neurotransmitter and hormone produced in our bodies that allows us to trust and bond. It fosters attachment between romantic partners, friends, mothers and infants, and even with our pets and strangers at a Coachella or Lollapalooza, Grateful Dead or Phish show.
Moody Bitches (Dr. Holland)
There are many ways to reach this state of mental and physical wellbeing that modern medicine has overlooked. The implications for our happiness and health are profound.

We can find oneness in meditation, in community, or in awe at the beauty around us. Another option: psychedelic medicines that can catalyze a connection with "self," with nature, or with the cosmos.

Author psychiatrist Dr. Julie Holland, M.D.
Her book Good Chemistry: The Science of Connection, from Soul to Psychedelics points us on the right path to forging true and deeper attachments with our own "souls" (psyches, minds, spirits, astral bodies), to one another -- and even to our planet.

This will help us heal ourselves and our world... if the government doesn't ban it again in the interest of Big Pharma's profit motive in selling lifelong "treatments" instead of actual natural (non-synthetic) "cures." More
