Mushroom Gathering!

Mushroom

GATHERING

Hello Enlightened One!

This gathering will bring together a like-minded group of participants to create a collective support field of consciousness in

which healing and empowerment unfolds. In other words, when the mushroom "does its thing" you will be open to information that you are ready for. And the "letting go" of ideas that no longer serve you. A new perspective will emerge from within, and you will never be the same.

Set an intention.

Intentions will become useful when you are experiencing the high. If this is your first time, you will spend some time thinking about whether “it's working”. If you are prepared, you will find the message within you, and the answer will be clear because you set the intention before hand. The information you receive will correspond with your intention directly. You will only receive what you are ready for.

Important Information.

Research has found that with the combination of a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI) and food containing tyramine, can result in a hypertensive interaction ("the cheese effect").

 

Hypertension/high blood pressure symptoms can include; severe headache (occipital or temporal), palpitations, nausea and vomiting. Typically resolving within 4-6 hours. Onset is typically rapid (15 mins- 1hr).

 

Here’s why:

MAOI + Excess tyramine = potential for tyramine (“cheese”) reaction.

 

Psilocybin is a MAOI (monoamine oxidase inhibitor) which blocks the monoamine oxidase, which is an enzyme that breaks down excess tyramine in the body. If you take a MAOI (Psilocybin aka Magic Mushrooms) and you eat high-tyramine foods, tyramine can quickly reach high levels. This can cause a serious spike in blood pressure/hypertension and can cause a problem.

 

Tyramine.

Tyramine is an amino acid that helps regulate blood pressure. It occurs naturally in the body, and it's found in certain foods.

 

To minimize the risk of hypertensive interaction ("the cheese effect") please follow the below dietary recommendations. Avoid consuming foods that are high in tyramine if you take Psilocybin.

 

Please follow the tyramine restriction diet at least 3 days before the gathering and 3 days after the gathering.
