Our Team of experts have dedicated their lives to be pioneers in their respective fields. Everyone at Natural MedTech is excited to develop potential new treatments for indications that have little to no treatments available.
We are dedicated to psychedelic research but understand psychedelic's aren't the whole picture in the healing journey.
Our 7 Pillars of Health
Heart rate variability (HRV) is the fluctuations in between heartbeats which is intimately linked with exercise. It is a reproducible measure of autonomic nervous system function.
There is irrefutable evidence showing the beneficial effects of exercise both to prevent and to treat several diseases. Lifelong exercise is associated with a longer health span, delaying the onset of 40 chronic conditions/diseases.
By training mindful states we can come to embody mindful traits. Meditation or mindfulness training has been proposed to be synergistic with the beneficial effects of psychedelics and may reduce anxiety and other adverse experiences (Smigielski, 2019).
Depending on who you are this list may seem daunting, but all of the pillars are very important for health. Psychedelic medicine is unique as it offers people a new approach to learning and changing behaviours. Psychedelics offer the ability to rewrite thought patterns and allow people to reconnect on a new level the the other 6 pillars of Health.
“We know for sure that sleep serves multiple functions, We know, for example, that sleep is critical for waking cognition—that is, for the ability to think clearly, to be vigilant and alert, and sustain attention. We also know that memories are consolidated during sleep, and that sleep serves a key role in emotional regulation.” - Dr. Dinges - The Extraordinary Importance of Sleep
MEDITATION & BREATHEWORK
Recently, in an EEG study, it has been shown that meditation is associated with increased brain network integration.
Breathwork is demonstrating to be the quickest way to modulate your nervous system in real time. Wim Hoff has shown that through breathwork humans are able to modulate their immune system and push there bodies to the limit that was previously thought impossible.
Personalised nutrition approaches healthy eating by tailoring to the nutritional needs to the biology of the individual
Personalized medicine (PM) is about tailoring a treatment based upon identified genetic, epigenomic, and clinical information that allows the breakthroughs in our understanding of how a person's unique genomic portfolio makes them vulnerable to certain diseases.
Research using metagenomic sequencing can identify all the microorganisms in a sample and sequence all of the genes in the microorganisms for their functional potential.
Research into the Gut Microbiome has shown links with most common health conditions and disease states - including a strong link with mental health.
We believe people deserve better than to live with symptom management when there are more effective and healthier treatment options. Our mission is to break the symptom management cycle that’s all too prevalent in mental healthcare.
Our approach is always evidence based, but we are not scared to ask bold questions. We base every decision on meticulous evidence.
Traditional psychiatric medications can have severe unwanted side effects and are not healthy long term. We advocate for natural medications that are showing to not only help mental health disorders but also show neurogenic and anti inflammatory properties.
We believe that in order to bring new therapies to the greatest number of people possible collaboration is key. Plus, its more fun. We strategise and find ways to accelerate innovation to provide access to all.
We act with integrity and are respectful and honest. We are considerate in our approach to innovation and development of medicines from traditional cultures.
Australian Manufacture allows us to effectively leverage the Special Access Scheme B.
We envision a system where psychedelic based therapy becomes a normal part of the psychiatric treatment repertoire.
We are committed to this pursuit.
