Psychedelic experiences are profoundly life changing and transformative events that can alter your perception, cognition, emotion, and consciousness. They can also offer various benefits for your mental health, well-being, and personal growth. However, not everyone is able to access these benefits due to various factors, such as lack of access, legal restrictions, fear of negative consequences, negative friends, mindset and environment or low expectations.
Fortunately, today there is plenty supportive research, documentaries and books like “how to change your mind”
Natural enhancing of psychedelic journeys and substances through mao inhibitors
There are some natural ways to enhance and lengthen your psychedelic experiences without resorting to synthetic drugs or artificial settings. One of these ways is to use natural MAO inhibitors (MAOIs), which are substances that inhibit the enzyme monoamine oxidase (MAO), which breaks down neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and DMT in the brain. By preventing MAO from degrading these chemicals, natural MAO inhibitors can increase their availability and potency in the brain, leading to more intense and longer-lasting psychedelic effects.
What are Natural MAO Inhibitors?
MAO inhibitors are a class of substances that block the activity of monoamine oxidase (MAO), an enzyme that breaks down neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine, and DMT in the brain. These neurotransmitters are responsible for regulating various aspects of your mood, cognition, emotion, and consciousness. When they are depleted by MAO’s action, you may experience symptoms such as depression, anxiety, fatigue, or lack of motivation.
However, when you consume natural MAO inhibitors along with psychedelic substances such as psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms), LSD (the active ingredient in acid), or ayahuasca (a brew made from Banisteriopsis caapi vine), you can prevent MAO from degrading these neurotransmitters. This means that more of them will remain in the synapses between nerve cells in your brain for longer periods of time. This can result in more profound and longer-lasting psychedelic effects.
Some examples of natural MAO inhibitors are:
- Citrus fruits: “LemonTek” Citrus fruits contain acetic acid (found in oranges and lemons), which helps break down psilocybin into psilocin. Acetic acid can help the body metabolize magic mushrooms more efficiently ~ effectively leading to a faster onset of effects and a more intense mushroom trip. Citrus fruits also contain vitamin C (found in lemons), which can boost the immune system and protect against oxidative stress.
- Chakruna: Chakruna is a plant that is traditionally used in ayahuasca ceremonies to increase its potency. Chakruna contains several MAO inhibitors that can enhance the effects of DMT without causing nausea or vomiting. Chakruna also contains other compounds that can modulate serotonin receptors and increase dopamine levels.
- Ginger: my favourite medicine, Ginger is a spice that has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for various ailments. Ginger contains gingerol (found in ginger root) and shogaol (found in ginger powder), which are powerful antioxidants that can protect against oxidative stress. Gingerol also inhibits both types of MAOs — MAO-A (which breaks down serotonin) and MAO-B (which breaks down dopamine) — by binding to their active sites. By inhibiting both types of MAOs simultaneously,
gingerol can enhance the effects of both psilocybin and ayahuasca without causing nausea or vomiting.
- Turmeric: Our nr. 1 anti-inflammatory and overall health supplement combined with fenugreek and Black pepper/cayenne pepper. Turmeric is another spice that has been used for centuries as a natural remedy for various ailments.
- Curcuminoids also have neuroprotective effects that can prevent neuronal damage caused by oxidative stress or inflammation
- Turmeric contains curcuminoids (found in turmeric root), which are powerful antioxidants that can protect against oxidative stress. Curcuminoids also have anti-inflammatory properties that can modulate immune system responses.
- Curcuminoids also have antidepressant effects that can improve mood and reduce anxiety.
- Curcuminoids also have psychedelic effects when combined with psilocybin or ayahuasca. This is because curcuminoids can inhibit both types of MAOs — MAO-A (which breaks down serotonin) and MAO-B (which breaks down dopamine) — by binding to their active sites⁴.
2. How to Prepare for a Psychedelic Session with Natural MAO Inhibitors
Before you decide to use natural MAOIs along with psychedelics, you should be aware of some important factors:
- Dosage: The dosage of natural MAOs depends on several factors, such as your body weight, metabolism, tolerance, and the type and amount of psychedelic substance you are using. You should start with a low dose and gradually increase it until you find the optimal level for your desired effects. You should also avoid taking more than one MAOI at a time, as this can increase the risk of adverse reactions or interactions. You should consult with your doctor or a qualified practitioner before taking any MAOIs, especially if you have any medical conditions or are taking any medications.
- Timing: The timing of natural MAOs is also crucial for maximizing their effects and minimizing their side effects. You should take them at least 3 hours before ingesting any psychedelic substance, as this will allow enough time for the MAOIs to metabolize and prevent them from interfering with the psychedelic substance’s action. You should also avoid taking them too close to bedtime, as this can cause insomnia or nightmares.
- You should aim for a balanced meal before taking any MAOIs, as this will help your body absorb them better and prevent nausea or stomach upset.
- Setting: The setting of natural MAOs is another important factor that can influence your psychedelic experience. You should choose a comfortable, safe, and familiar environment where you feel relaxed and secure.
- You should also avoid any distractions or interruptions that could interfere with your focus and awareness.
- You should have some beautiful music playing in the background if you like it, but not too loud or stimulating.
- You should also have some water or juice handy in case you feel thirsty or nauseous.
- Intentions: The intentions of natural MAOs are the goals or purposes that you have for using them along with psychedelics.
- They can be related to self healing, growth, exploration, creativity, spirituality, or anything else that matters to you. For me, bringing positive change, deep connection to nature and oneness.
- Asking for guidance and knowing “i am safe, protected snd guided”
- Having clear and positive intentions can help you prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for the session and enhance your experience.
- You can write down your intentions beforehand or say them out loud during the session.
- Safe beautiful playlists bevore like “healing music” psychedelic journey music, classical sounds,
- I love deep meditations, visualisations etc. On psychedelics.
How to Integrate a Psychedelic Experience with Natural MAO Inhibitors
After completing a psychedelic session with natural MAOIs along with psychedelics,
you may feel confused,
This is normal
this does never mean
you have failed
On the contrary,
this is an opportunity
that arose in your journey
and bring them into your daily life.
Concious, self loving integration ~ non judgemental
Integration is not something that happens overnight.
It is a process that requires patience,
It is also something that varies from person to person,
from journey to journey,
and from theme to theme.
There is no one right way to integrate a psychedelic experience,
but there are some general principles and techniques that can help.
Some of these principles and techniques are:
- Reflect: Reflection is the act of examining and analyzing what happened during your session.
You can do this by writing down your thoughts and feelings in a journal,
or by talking to someone who was there with you or who supports you.
You can also use tools such as drawing,
or other forms of creative expression to convey what came up for you.
The goal of reflection is not to judge yourself or others,
but to understand yourself better and learn from your experience.
- Process: Processing is the act of transforming what happened during your session into something meaningful and useful for yourself.
You can do this by identifying the main themes or messages that emerged in your experience,
and how they relate to your personal issues,
You can also do this by finding ways to apply what you learned in your life situations,
such as relationships,
or spiritual quests.
The goal of processing is not to change yourself completely,
but to grow yourself further and make positive changes in your life. The goal of processing is to make sense of your experience and find meaning and purpose in it.
- Share: Sharing is the act of communicating what happened during your session with others who can understand and support you. You can do this by joining a psychedelic integration group, a peer support network, an online forum, or a community of like-minded people. You can also do this by finding a psychedelic therapist, coach, or guide who can help you with professional guidance and feedback. The goal of sharing is to connect with others who can validate, empathize, and inspire you.
- Apply: Applying is the act of implementing what you learned during your session into your daily life. You can do this by setting realistic and achievable goals, taking action steps, and tracking your progress. You can also do this by creating new habits, routines, and rituals that support your well-being and growth. You can also do this by giving back to others, the environment, or a cause that you care about. The goal of applying is to manifest your intentions and values in the world.
These are some of the ways to integrate a psychedelic experience with natural MAO inhibitors. However, there may be other methods or tools that suit your needs better. You can also consult with other researchers or experts in your field for more advice or feedback.
