MDMA is a well known substance for psychedelic therapy and partydrugs and can sigficantly reduce symptoms of PTSD, anxiety disorder, and trauma. According to recent studies, MDMA has a unique ability to downregulate the amygdala, which leads to a decrease in the fear response and emotional reactivity associated with past traumatic experiences.

The amygdala is a small almond-shaped structure in the brain that is primarily responsible for processing emotions like fear and anxiety. When a person experiences a traumatic event, the amygdala becomes hypersensitive and can easily trigger the fear response even when there is no real threat. Over time, this can lead to the development of PTSD, anxiety disorder, and other mental health conditions.

MDMA works by releasing a cascade of neurotransmitters, which include serotonin, dopamine, and noradrenaline, within the brain. Serotonin is particularly important since it regulates mood, anxiety, and social behavior. The release of this neurotransmitter stimulates the frontal cortex and reduces the activity of the amygdala, leading to a decrease in the fear response and emotional reactivity.

During the MDMA therapy session, patients are usually given a dose of 100mg MDMA, and then they are allowed to talk about their traumatic experiences without feeling overwhelmed by the fear and anxiety associated with it. The therapy often involves immersive and interactive experiences such as talking with a trusted therapist, listening to music, or engaging in other sensory activities to help patients feel less anxious or fearful.

MDMA sessions and the preparation

The preparation is key for good psychedelic therapy

Balancing neurotransmitters before an MDMA session can greatly enhance the overall experience. By preparing the body with nutrients such as magnesium and amino acids like tyrosin and 5-HTP, the brain is able to produce and regulate neurotransmitters more efficiently. This results in an improved mood and increased effects during the session. By promoting balance and stability within the body, users can achieve a more positive and fulfilling experience.

Learning about certain topics before a MDMA session or MDMA ceremony can help during the session itself, similar to how dreaming about past events can occur. That’s why the goals of the MDMA therapy should be taken into account when we make advice for the preparation.
