August 3rd: Psychedelics and Bone Health? A New Look at Natures Medicines
Undoubtedly you have read about micro-dosing psychedelics for depression, anxiety, PTSD and more. While I am skeptical of any, what appears to be a craze movement, I am also open to learning. Michael Pollen's book, "How to Change Your Mind" is a pivotal book regarding the importance of funding research into how nature may be providing the most important medications. This week, Netflix released a 4 part series, "How to Change Your Mind" - I highly recommend watching this series before this webinar. Why am I choosing to discuss this topic? Mental health definitely contributes to bone health or bone decline. Don't miss this thought provoking webinar and get your questions in!
