Well, I was thinking maybe if HPPD was like PTSD then maybe the cures would be similiar. after researching treatments, i came across eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy. in a nutshell, its pretty much this therapy where you think about what your mind cant seem to let go of while your eyes follow a moving object. apparently, eye movement allows the brain to sort of 'unfreeze' itself (or at least thats what the guy who made this process thought). this last phrase kind of sunk into me, because even if you never had a bad trip and technically dont have ptsd, then maybe the brain just hasnt unfrozen itself from the trip; and maybe thats whats causing hppd. Anyway, this is merely my theory and I know the logic is flawed because there are people with hppd that have never tripped, but like I said its just my theory for people who got hppd from hallucinogens. So anyway, I included a link to emdr's wikipedia page. the whole 8 step process sounds pretty expensive for something that probably wont work, but it has cured PTSD in the past and I think it might be able to help out with hppd.
