I’ve been tracking Dr. Dan Engle for almost five years. In today’s episode, we finally sit down to delve into his deep knowledge on alternative medicine and incredibly vast experience (350+ journeys!) with ayahuasca and other psychoactive substances.

In particular, this one focuses on therapeutic use of MDMA to treat PTSD, depression, and other serious issues that are on the rise in our society. Dr. Dan is in the know, speaking from incredible experience in both the traditional medical field and in lineage traditions. He even spent a year completely immersed in the jungle, living and learning, as he describes, married to the medicine.

I truly believe that these kinds of treatments, administered by experts, and offered within a support structure to ensure long term efficacy – can save the world. Dr. Engle is on the cutting edge of that global change in consciousness and I’m excited to see what he gets into next.

MAGNESIUM BREAKTHROUGH. According to the American Psychological Association, chronic stress is linked to the six leading causes of death. When most people think of stress, they think of their job, traffic, tense relationships, current events, things like that. But the root of so much of the stress we experience comes down to a deficiency in one overlooked nutrient — magnesium.
