WHAT IS DMT?
Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) is a psychoactive substance with powerful hallucinogenic effects; It is a compound present in different plants and to a lesser extent in the brain of mammals. This substance has been used in ancient times in mystical and spiritual rituals; however, its use has changed to treat different psychiatric treatments.
DMT is a powerful chemical that can be consumed in extract form or as a refined sunscreen. Its consumption is done orally, either by ingestion or by inhalation, and its effects are perceived immediately.
It is important to note that DMT is produced in a similar way to ayahuasca but with much more powerful effects. This substance is also produced in small amounts by our brain and is considered an endogenous chemical; It belongs to the pharmacological category of tryptamines, alkaloids with neuromodulatory effect.
WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
As we have mentioned before, this substance comes from various plants, generally located in South America, such as the “anandera” known as “yopo”, the acacia or Psychotria Viridis. However, it is also found in the brain of mammals; however, its extraction in this way is almost nil.
Today, thanks to advances and research, labs can also make this chemical for consumption, safely making DMT.
HOW IS IT CONSUMED?
Its consumption will always be oral. There are several ways to consume it, but generally, this substance is synthetically created to culminate in a white crystalline powder. It can enter the body while smoking a pipe, vaporized and also injected.
In ancient times, the Amazonian tribes used the plants and roots from which this substance came to create a kind of tea, which they drank as it provided them with “strength” for their daily activities such as hunting.
As we mentioned before, this treatment helps detoxify the brain and eliminate addictive behaviors; however, it is also used to help wounds (even infected ones) heal more quickly. More benefits of Hyperbaric Chamber are:

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment based on the theory that a supply of 100% pure oxygen to the body under elevated atmospheric pressure boosts its ability to recuperate quickly and stimulates the capacity of its cells to fight against disease-causing bacteria.
HBOT involves inhalation of 100% pure oxygen using a mask in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber, either single or multiple. While a single chamber is made for one user, multiple chambers are tailor-made to house two or more users simultaneously in an HBOT session.
Ingesting this powerful substance has its risks, and we must take them into account. Among the dangers on a physical level, elevated heart rate can be very dangerous for people with a pre-existing heart condition related to high blood pressure.
DMT can also cause seizures, indefinite loss of muscle coordination, and confusion. It can also cause respiratory arrest and coma; in some cases, being a hallucinogenic drug, it can cause persistent psychosis in some people.
This substance can greatly elevate serotonin levels in the human body, leading to a life-threatening serotonin syndrome disorder. That is why people who consume antidepressants should avoid the use of DMT at all costs since they have a high risk of presenting this condition.
