Plant Medicine for Vets Struggling with Trauma and PTSD with Dr. Jeff

The Western medical model falls short in helping people overcome trauma. All of us have some level of trauma in our lives, and the traditional model of therapy can be time-consuming and costly. Although therapy is beneficial, it may not be sufficient for people dealing with severe traumatic events, such as veterans. Quick and efficient help is essential, and plant medicine, particularly Ayahuasca, is one of the quickest and most effective healing modalities.

My Personal Story about Plant Medicine Healing at Rythmia

When I decided to participate in Rythmia's Ayahuasca plant medicine ceremonies in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, I was driven by a strong desire for personal change and insights into the root causes of my many fears, self-doubts, and insecurities. I completed many hours of formal therapy in the past, but I still felt stuck in life and weighed down by stress and constant worry.
