The Beginnings of Psilocybin Breakthrough Therapy
Research into using small amounts of psychedelics began in Europe as far back as the 1940s and 50s. Back then it was called Psycholytic Therapy.
Similar to microdosing today, psycholytic therapy used low doses of psychedelic substances to support other forms of conventional therapy such as group therapy, talk therapy, and music therapy.
Around the same time in the United States, psychedelic therapy was developed. Unlike its counterpart in Europe, researchers in the US were studying higher doses of psychedelics to promote inward reflection. It was initially seen as a replacement for electroshock therapy to reset the mind.
Unfortunately, all that research came to an abrupt halt when psychedelics were classed as Schedule I drugs in the 1960s. But this didn’t stop some researchers from continuing to work with anecdotal evidence collected from voluntary feedback of people who take psychedelics or microdose on their own.
Today, psilocybin breakthrough therapy and other psychedelics are going through a Renaissance. Some countries and some states have decriminalized magic mushrooms and a few other plant medicines. This makes access to them much easier for researchers who have long had access to the initial research on their effectiveness as treatment for mental disorders and other ailments.

How to Start Microdosing
The most well-known and accepted system is The Fadiman Protocol, which is suggested by James P. Fadiman. On this schedule, you take your microdose on day one, take two days of rest, then your next microdose on the fourth day.
This method allows your system to reap the benefits of psilocybin without building up a tolerance to it. This system also allows you to better monitor how your body and perception is affected by the psilocybin. If you start to feel dizzy, or experience hallucinations, your dose is too high so you need to lessen the amount of shrooms you take.
Generally, you should not feel any psychedelic effects and discomfort should be minimal to non-existent once you find your microdosing sweet spot.
Common Microdosing Discomforts and How to Avoid Them
The most common uncomfortable sensations that may happen when you begin to microdose are nausea, headaches, or an increase in anxiety.
Nausea is a common side-effect with microdosing or with a regular dose of psilocybin. Some people just feel ill after ingesting psilocybin. To help this, you can sip a ginger infusion to calm your digestive system. And take your microdose on an empty stomach.
The headaches may be due to vasoconstriction. This is a normal process that happens when your blood vessels become narrow. When microdosing, this may happen depending on the type of serotonin receptors the psilocin attaches to once it enters your system.
To reduce this, you may take magnesium supplements which is a vasodilator. You may also decrease the amount of psilocybin mushrooms you take for your next few microdoses. If the headaches persist unless you take magnesium, you may have a magnesium deficiency in your body.
An increase in anxiety when starting to microdose has been reported in individuals who already suffered from anxiety to begin with. This is one of the reasons why psilocybin breakthrough therapy research is so important. So that we can get a better understanding of how microdosing and psilocybin assisted therapy can help certain mental disorders under the right conditions.
Magic mushrooms are a gift from nature with amazing healing and consciousness expanding qualities. Now that the taboo of shrooms is finally starting to lift, it’s important to do the work to find your psilocybin therapy dosage.
Some discomforts may occur as you explore psilocybin to find your personal sweet spot. But once you find your dosage, you will be able to take the power of your health into your own hands.
