Rethinking Therapeutic Strategies for Anorexia Nervosa: Insights From Psychedelic Medicine and Animal Models Claire J. Foldi, Paul Liknaitzky, Martin Williams, Brian J. Oldfield Frontiers in Neuroscience, 2020 | Volume 14 | Article 43 : 1-8 doi : 10.3389/fnins.2020.00043   Anorexia nervosa (AN) has the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric disease, yet available pharmacological treatments are largely ineffective due, in part, to an inadequate understanding of the neurobiological drivers that underpin the condition.

Psychedelics for Mental Illness: The Evidence to Date, Todd Murphy, 2020

Psychedelics for Mental Illness: The Evidence to Date Todd Murphy Medscape, 12 March, 2020. https://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/926694_print Psychedelic drugs show real promise as treatment for psychiatric illnesses, particularly posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as well as depression and anxiety, new research suggests. A literature review showed completed clinical trials support the efficacy of 3, 4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), commonly known by its street name of Ecstasy, to treat chronic PTSD. The review also confirmed that psilocybin, a compound contained in some species of mushrooms, significantly helped in the treatment of depression and cancer-related anxiety. Other promising, though more preliminary, results suggests that the hallucinogenic drug LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide) and a plant-based brew [...]

Doi : 10.1186/s12888-019-2288-z   Abstract In a recent issue of the BMC Psychiatry, the evidence of effectiveness of treatments for psychiatric conditions in end-stage cancer patients was reviewed (Johnson, 2018). The review was comprehensive, and included traditional and non-traditional/alternative treatments, including herbal medicines and spirituality.
