Triumph Over Trauma: Psychedelic Medicines Are Helping People Heal Their Trauma. Change Their Lives, and Grow Their Spirituality

Front Cover
Randall S. Hansen, Ph.D., Jan 23, 2023 - Self-Help

Imagine that you had no ill effects from past trauma: no depression, no addiction, no thoughts of suicide. Imagine there are substances that have been used as healing medicines for centuries – substances which have been illegal in the U.S. and around the world for more than 5 decades because of questionable politics of the War on Drugs.

Thousands of research studies regarding the potential benefits of psychedelic medicines have now been produced (both from before the ban and from more recent times) – and the results are astounding. Soldiers healed from the traumas of war (PTSD), adults healed from childhood intergenerational traumas from parents and grandparents; abuse survivors relieved of their guilt, shame, anger; depression-sufferers released of their prison of sadness and the need to take antidepressant medications; agnostic people discovering spirituality.

What you’ll find in this book is all the information you need to begin your journey of discovery into whether one or more of these psychedelic medicines may help you. You’ll find several chapters covering all the basics of psychedelics, from their fascinating history to how these medicines work to how and what you need to move forward with intentionally using psychedelic medicines.

Find yourself in one or more of the 23 stories that people from all spectrums of life graciously share here. These stories range from people seeking clarity about their future to wanting to heal from their pain to freeing themselves from addiction to diving deeply into the Divine. These tremendous stories will move you to places you may have never visited – where you’ll find self-love and acceptance – and perhaps a path for your own transformation.

Finally, while macrodosing (full-on hallucinogenic experience) with these psychedelic medicines for healing is the major focus of the book, there is also a chapter and several stories on microdosing for healing; the advantage of microdosing is that the dose is too small to produce any perceptible effects.
