Dr. Carla Clements — MDMA, psychedelics and the future of therapy.
Listen to the UNcivilized Podcast:
We all know the healing methods such as going to therapy, breathwork, psychologists, but have you ever thought that the use of the MDMA may be all you need?
Today's guest, Dr. Carla June Clements, learned about the benefits of psychedelics in the '60s before it was outlawed. In this episode, she shared with us her point of view on the use of psychedelics for therapy and personal healing.
