Mental health problems are the number one driver of indirect healthcare costs, loss of productivity, and diminished quality of life. Yet, we aren’t very successful at treating them with modern medicine.
Today on The Doctor’s Farmacy, I am excited to talk to Dr. Pamela Kryskow about the renaissance of psychedelic medicine and how these compounds are finally being recognized as powerful tools for overcoming hard-to-treat health issues like PTSD, depression, addiction, and more.
Dr. Pamela Kryskow is a medical doctor and the medical lead of the non-profit Roots To Thrive Psychedelic Assisted Therapy Programs, which treats people with PTSD, depression, anxiety, substance use challenges, and with end-of-life distress. She is a founding board member of the Psychedelic Association of Canada and the medical chair of the Vancouver Island University Post Graduate Certificate in Psychedelic Medicine-assisted Therapy. Her ongoing research includes psilocybin, MDMA, ketamine, microdosing, front-line healthcare workers, and first responder's mental wellness. Prior to studying medicine, she was a City of Coquitlam Firefighter for eight years and a provincial forestry firefighter for four seasons.
