Psilocybin in Mushrooms For Treatment Of Depression

April 28, 2022

Psilocybin Mushrooms have been in the headlines quite often lately. And it’s not stories about the negative effects. Psilocybin is being studied for its ability to help with a wide range of complicated ailments and has even been given FDA breakthrough status as a potential medicine for treatment resistant depression.

Exploring these options seems more and more important as health and wellness are constantly challenged. The safety profile, when done in a safe setting, is extremely high. Statistically, psilocybin is one of the physiologically safest compounds known to man. Academic institutes are doubling down on this research and are being led by Johns Hopkins University.

Umbo’s co-founder, Del Jolly, has been working on one psilocybin study with JHU for the last three years and is looking to start publishing this year. Umbo was founded to help support this cause through corporate social responsibility. A portion of sales from Umbo goes towards this research. Umbo also believes in the importance of functional mushrooms as well. Lion’s mane, Cordyceps, Reishi, Turkey Tail and many others are proving to also be incredibly beneficial and an important part of our diets. Umbo offers functional mushroom bars, and energy and rest capsules made up of high quality, organic fruiting body mushrooms and other beneficial adaptogens and compounds.

The Deep Therapeutic Sport’s Massage Your Body Is Crying For

December 25, 2021

It’s that time of the year when you’ve given and given and GIVEN and now it’s full-on what about me mode. Maybe it’s just a quiet cry it in the middle of the night but it’s a “no, seriously, what the fuck about me?!”

Nothing says hell yasss me time, like some therapeutic bodywork. Massage is always my go-to self-care treat. I was excited to check out this guy Terry’s work. This is not a soft and fuzzy warm and cozy deal. This is, you got to his raw and NYC cool little private training gym, hop on his table (wear something warm and cozy it can be chilly) and he gets to work on you. No frills, just deep work.

Of course, he can also come to you. I chose to try the gym/studio because I live a few blocks away and wanted to check it out.

So, the work is VERY GOOD. Deep and sportsy – made me feel like a real athlete. He worked deep into my scapula and aching shoulder in a way I so deeply needed. I was fully dressed – in my sweats – this is not an under the towel type of thing – and he worked one body part at a time – a combo of many disciplines, strokes and styles. It was just right and exactly what my body needed. I’m excited to go back and just fully relax and focus now that I know more about Terry and his work (I am always a little in editor mode on my first try, asking questions and forgetting to focus on how things FEEL sometimes.) Even so, this work felt great.

Mytodetox

October 26, 2021

Loved my session at Myodetox, (which has officially opened their second US location in Brentwood. I checked out the gorg WeHo location.

Here’s the deal: Myodetox is a unique physical therapy clinic with an ethos centered in the belief that understanding and optimizing your physical health should be a preventative and integral part of your wellness journey  – not simply a post-injury solution. They are focused on improving the way you move so you can continue to do the things you love.  Whether you are nursing an injury, looking to understand pain and/ or trigger points or are simply looking to take your physical fitness to the next level, among other areas of expertise, Myodetox has you covered.

Dr. Nirja,  PT, DPT, RYT, who treated me is a total bad-ass, I’m talking extremely well versed and trained. Top notch. (Side note, I love her Youtube channel with yummy vegan recipes) We did a posture and alignment check, went through my physical history then she did some amazing hands-on myofascial work. My only complaint was I wanted 6 more hours of THAT part. It felt so inredible – I could have had her work on me for much much longer. She showed me some optimal stretches and that was that! I loved it.

Founded in 2015 in Canada, Myodetox is a boutique clinic with a team of expert therapists that provide hands-on therapy and corrective exercises to help people get out of pain and gain a comprehensive understanding of the way your body works, ultimately helping to optimize your physical health.

Each session includes:

    • Myofascial treatment

    • Personalized action plan based on individual goals/ needs

The place is stunning, clean, not too clinical, warm and welcoming, all while feeling private and safe.
