Brilliant Blends is the result of more than 30 years of hands-on clinic and nutritional experience. In recent years, there has been a widening gap between the traditional medical modalities and the true needs of individuals, especially when it comes to dietary and mental health.
There has been an alarming rise in instances of depression, anxiety, and PTSD for all age groups over the last 10 years. The COVID-19 pandemic of the past year has only accelerated this trend. Concurrently, the amazing applications and results of holistic plant medicines have also seen a resurgence.
Where traditional western medicine aims to tackle issues of mental health with various pharmaceutical medications, alternative practitioners have been turning more and more to natural, holistic, and sustainable solutions through the use of medicinal mushrooms and adaptogens.
The practice of microdosing natural, psychoactive substances has been undergoing a massive renaissance, both in our medicine and in our culture. Whether its from high-level medical publications like John’s Hopkins, or anecdotal accounts from silicon valley executives, more and more people are turning towards naturally occurring psychedelics like psilocybin, LSD, and DMT to help increase their mental performance and improve their lives.
This movement inspired us to create Adapt and Thrive. Despite the growing body of medical literature on the therapeutic effects of microdosing on mental health and wellbeing, these psychoactive substances are still classified as schedule 1 drugs.* This led us to search for the optimal combinations of herbs and adaptogens to try and mimic the action potential of psilocybin in the brain using only natural, legal ingredients. What we eventually arrived at were the formulations for Adapt and Thrive, two supplements meant to bridge the gap and deliver the amazing results of these natural medicines to everyone.
