Psychedelic neurology, functional seizures, faith healing, and neuroplasticity with Dr. Evan Lewis



On this episode of Psychedelic Therapy Frontiers, Dr. Steve Thayer and Dr. Reid Robison are joined by Dr. Evan Lewis. Evan is a Neurologist and Clinical Neurophysiologist with expertise in pediatric neurology and epilepsy. At Numinus he’s the VP of Psychedelic Neurology and the medical director of our Toronto clinic. Evan has extensive clinical and research experience using medical cannabis and psychedelics to treat neurological disorders in adults and children. Link to Evan’s full bio HERE.

We have a wide-ranging conversation today.. We talk about the potential for psychedelics to treat neurological conditions like Alzheimer's, TBI, migraines, and functional seizures. We discuss what neuroplasticity actually means relative to what we think psychedelics do in the brain. We explore possible neurological explanations for faith healing and conversion disorders…and much more.
