As Medical Bodies Across the U.S. Recognize the Benefits of Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy, Psychable and Heroic Hearts Project are Committed to Increasing Education and Impacting Legislation
LOS ANGELES, April 21, 2021 — Psychable, the online community for people who are interested in legally exploring or offering psychedelic-assisted therapy, is committed to raising awareness of the transformative power of psychedelics to improve lives across the world.
Today, Psychable announced that it is working with the nonprofit Heroic Hearts Project to launch #NatureHeals, a social media movement dedicated to increasing education around natural entheogens through testimonials, and rallying donations from supporters to continue the important work of providing veterans suffering from PTSD with access to alternative forms of treatment.
Heroic Hearts Project (HHP) has a proprietary program for veterans interested in pursuing psychedelic treatment options to treat PTSD, primarily by partnering with ayahuasca retreat centers. The program is designed for veterans to get the most out of the retreat, which includes ensuring they are set up for success when they return home. The organization also provides financial scholarships to veterans to eliminate financial barriers for treatment. To date, HHP has provided more than $200,000 in support to veteran applicants.
Psychedelic-assisted therapy is the use of psychedelics for healing purposes, often taking the form of a psychedelic being administered under the supervision of a therapist. Recent studies have shown that when administered under the supervision of, or with the aftercare of a therapist, psychedelic-assisted therapy can have and impactful results when it comes to treating those suffering with migraines, addiction, PTSD, depression, mental health issues, emotional trauma, and other ailments, as well as those looking for alternative, holistic options in taking care of their mental health.
The #NatureHeals campaign shines a light on the stories of those whose lives have been profoundly changed for the better with the help of psychedelics. The campaign is an important movement that is helping to break down the stigma of exploring natural psychedelics as holistic healing options.
“The first step in changing legislation around psychedelic-assisted therapy and restoring access to natural medicines is changing the conversation, and that’s exactly what we hope to do by launching #NatureHeals,” said Jemie Sae Koo, CEO & Founder, Psychable. “We encourage anyone who has had a positive, life-altering experience with any psychedelic substance or treatment method to share their story with us on social media using #NatureHeals, and are thrilled to help those who are doing great work in this space make strides towards their mission of improving well-being by expanding access to natural medicines.”
As communities across the country make strides towards the decriminalization and medical authorization of psychedelics, it’s more important than ever to advocate for expanded access to what can be impactful and lasting healing options.
“A profound psychedelic experience can heal so many different parts of the body, nature is so much smarter than we give it credit for. As a society, we have spent a significant amount of time living apart from the ecosystem rather than living in it. After centuries of scientific revolution, we are finding that the answer to transformative healing can come from nature – a leaf, a vine, and a mushroom. #NatureHeals is important work to continue advocacy and destimagize the use of psychedelics as medicine,” said Jesse Gould, Founder and President, Heroic Hearts Project.
