Digital health will play a crucial role in the future of medicine, with digital therapeutics playing an especially important role in the burgeoning psychedelic medicine industry.
The future of psychedelics will be more than simply popping some FDA-approved pills, as these potent compounds call for a more holistic and experiential approach to therapy. And digital platforms can help.
Entheo Digital is working to position itself as a leading innovator in this space. CEO Robin Arnott and Sandeep Prakash, Entheo’s Chief Scientific Officer spoke at the recent Psychedelic Capital event with a “Technology of Advanced Psychedelic Therapy” panel.
Psychedelic Therapy with Immersive Virtual Experiences
“Entheo was founded to distribute digital therapeutics for psychedelic therapies, specifically for immersive, experiential digital experiences that can be used as tools for psychedelic therapists and patients” says Robin Arnott.
SoundSelf is Entheos’ featured product. In development for many years it uses sound and visuals to give people access to psychedelic-like states. The VR experience accomplishes this with a unique vocal feedback system. Using singing, chanting, or toning, there is then dynamic music and visualizations that respond to everything the user does with their voice.
“It can facilitate unified states of consciousness.Transpersonal states of consciousness, without a chemical without a drug. And we found it to be really excellent for psychedelic therapy, preparation, and integration.”
Here’s a clip from their presentation:
“The technology guides people into a pattern of breathing and vocal toning that activates the vagus nerve and decreases autonomic arousal, or makes you feel much more calm and relaxed. SoundSelf is a tool that can amplify any therapeutic process by precisely directing awareness within deeply relaxed states of consciousness.You’re opened up to more information from the body and in the psyche. It’s as if the doors of perception into our emotional and feeling roles are temporarily open and you’re given an opportunity to be with yourself in a new way.”
SoundSelf has several potential uses. On the patient side, it can help better prepare patients for therapy, thus increasing chances of better outcomes and the likelihood of continued use of psychedelic therapy.
