Nutrition, Your Health & Psychedelic Therapy

October 9, 2020 08:05:28

We have previously emphasized how important it is to prepare for your psychedelic therapy sessions, and we would now like to focus a lot more on how you can tweak your dietary habits in order to increase the likelihood of a desirable outcome once you undergo psychedelic-assisted therapy. Here are some of the key nutrients to include in your diet before, during and after the therapy sessions.


Folate is a crucial B-vitamin which helps in the production of dopamine. While you can get your folate from a daily intake of lentils and leafy greens, our foods are generally deficient in nutrients, so you might want to include a folate supplement in your diet. By having ample folate, your brain will be capable of producing dopamine in response to the psychedelic therapy you undergo.

Vitamin D

It is important for you to get ample sun exposure each day in order manufacture your daily dose of vitamin D. However, it may not always be possible for you to expose your body to the sun long enough to trigger the production of vitamin D, so supplementation can bridge any gaps. Vitamin D plays a big role in regulating your mood, and psychedelic therapy can put your emotions through quite an emotional roller-coaster!


This mineral is important for heart health as well as in keeping your nerves healthy and functioning properly. Gut bacteria also depend on magnesium, so a deficiency in this key nutrient can be detrimental not just to your brain health but also your immune system. Depression and anxiety can also result when you are chronically deficient in magnesium. To get this nutrient, make cacao, bananas, leafy greens and other such foods part of your daily diet. By the time your psychedelic therapy begins, your body will be in position to produce the biochemicals necessary for your healing.


Some sections of the scientific community assert that 90% of our brain and overall health is dependent on how healthy our gut is, and probiotics are the engine that power gastrointestinal health. Probiotics are the beneficial microorganisms which populate our digestive tract, and they help to digest the food we eat, facilitate absorption of nutrients and regulate our mood. It is therefore vital that you take lots of fermented foods on a daily basis so that you can have a chance to benefit fully from your psychedelic therapy.

Staying hydrated, taking antioxidants, limiting how much caffeine and alcohol you consume will also stand you in good stead as you prepare for or undergo psychedelic therapy. If in doubt about any of nutritional and health preparations you need to have in mind, consult your psychedelic therapist for guidance. As Rritual Mushrooms Inc. and other psychedelics companies say, you can’t go wrong if you consult the experts.
