Dr.’s Michael and Annie Mithofer MDMA 10/4/11

Dr. Miller and his guests, Dr. Michael Mithofer MD and Ann Mithofer BSN, discuss their FDA approved clinical trials of using 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) as a therapeutic tool to assist psychotherapy for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Preliminary studies have shown that MDMA in conjunction with psychotherapy can help people overcome PTSD, and possibly other disorders as well. MDMA has “empathogenic” effects, meaning that it increases feelings of trust and compassion towards others.
