Ketamine, an effective psychedelic drug is being used to treat treatment-resistant depression. 


Yes, you read that right, Dr. David Feifel, a medical doctor who is a professor at the University of California, San Diego and runs his own clinic (Kadima Neuropsychiatry Institute), joins me in this episode to talk about his journey into using ketamine & Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) to treat his patients from various mental illnesses. 


Dr. Feifel is at the forefront of psychedelic research and really believes it can bring a very positive change in people's lives. I really enjoyed this episode, which is one of my longest as well.
