Psychedelics and Health

 Alex (@hollowinfinity) 6 years, 10 months ago

So question- I can’t find information about this on the internet. All I can find is stuff about mental health and psychedelics.

So, last time I took mushrooms, I did my usually meditation sesh. This time however, I was gifted of knowledge about my body. Im not sure how many of you have meditated on a high level of psychedelics before, but personally, I could feel all the energy moving through my body, and specifically how energy ‘grouped’ together at chakra points. I started to focus my full conscious attention on this flow of energy within my body.

My body felt as if the energy flow was nice and clean, except for a few parts. First, I’m a smoker, so I noticed an impurity about how energy initially comes into my system via breathing. That was something I was very appreciated to experience, as its made me drastically cut back smoking, and hopefully I can kick that habit completely soon.

There was another point though- my left knee. The energy would like get ‘stuck’ there. It wasn’t in harmony with the rest of my body. My trip ended before I can to any conclusions about it, but the message of my knee stuck with me. Some interpretations about your left knee and chakras I found was that it was symbolic to a discrepancy of authority figures in my life, but I havent been able to convince myself that something like that would be causing me such physical pain lately.

It’s been about 2 months since this trip, but my knee issue is getting worse.

Now, to the point- Has anyone discovered pending medical issues while on psychedelics before? Is it possible I created this problem in my body through psychedelics? Further, how do I go about addressing this issue, since I can’t really walk into the doctors office and tell them I figured it out on drugs.

Yes, I’ve experienced similar ‘blockages’ after taking psychedelics (or rather, it seemed psychedelics enhanced my perception). I don’t think they created the problem, and I think it’s best to see a physical therapist and just say you feel problems with your knee and it’s getting worse. Unfortunately we live in a society where if you mention the psychedelics, everything else you say is discredited.

Indeed. Im worried I wont be able to get adequate help since the symptoms are low right now. I could alternatively embellish the symptoms, but that could go badly too. (misdiagnosis or something) Thats the issue with modern medicine though- they won’t help prevent, just ‘cure’

Just tell them about your history and your current symptoms, but yeah, expect them to brush it away. You could also do some research on your own, especially posture and rehabilitation exercises.

Also, I’ve had some really good results with the wim hof method regarding these issues.

Our bodies are full of “background pain”. It’s caused by various things, but mostly due to minor injuries or disalignments/unbalance. When you raise your body awareness, by meditation or psychedelics or other means, you notice this pain that you usually ignore.
The drug didn’t cause the pain, it only made you notice it.

Get your knee checked up. Could be something that can be fixed, could be something that will get continually worse if you don’t do something about it.
But one thing is for sure, if you sit a lot you’ll get knee problems. No expections. The body isn’t made for that shit.
