- Enhanced Emotional Engagement: MDMA increases the release of hormones and neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, that play key roles in trust, bonding, and well-being. This can help patients feel safe and comfortable during MDMA sessions, allowing them to engage more deeply with their emotions.
- Reduced Fear Response: MDMA decreases activity in the amygdala, the part of the brain that processes fear. This can help patients revisit traumatic memories without being overwhelmed by fear or anxiety. The reduced anxiety levels allows the clients to talk more openly about the difficult parts of life, giving their selves the chance to process it better.
