Endogenous DMT acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory; so, producing these sorts of chemicals would seem to be optimal for the brain. There's enough evidence to show that endogenous DMT produced by proper breathwork creates more optimized fluid dynamics in the brain and thus allowing us to kind of clear out debris; not only when we sleep but also when we're awake too." - John Chavez

[50:00] Spreading Knowledge Of Our Human Potential



The Creation of Endogenous DMT Through Breath

"When endogenous DMT, which is naturally produced within the human brain, is upregulated, it also induces neuroplastic properties which allow us to change our neural pathways that then allows us to change our perception and perception is everything. It changes our way of thinking, changes our perception, and changes our life. Anything along the lines of natural tools such as breathwork, meditation, or sound that create endogenous DMT is always going to be in the right direction." - John Chavez


Cleansing The Brain Through Breathwork

"From what I've seen, the quickest way to get in an altered state is breathwork. It's faster than hypnosis or meditation. Deep breathing also correlates with the cleansing of the brain. It's like DMT acts as an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory; so, producing these sorts of chemicals would seem to be optimal for the brain. There's enough evidence to show that endogenous DMT produced by proper breathwork creates more optimized fluid dynamics in the brain and thus allowing us to kind of clear out debris; not only when we sleep but also when we're awake too." - John Chavez


Unpacking What 'Source' Is

"We have the idea that we're disconnected from everything but there is a source, something powering everything on this earth. 'Source' is like the Sun; without it, everything on this plant will die. Whether directly or indirectly, we need it because it's the driving foundation of life." - John Chavez

About John Chavez

John ChavezJohn Chavez believes that communication of mystical and supernormal experiences is just as important as the scientific exploration of these occurrences. There needs to be a bridge between scientific results and the ability of the general public to understand these results in a straightforward manner.

In this digital age of media, he believes that a widely distributed ongoing docuseries can provide a tool to accomplish this goal. After having operated as an independent researcher for 5 years and having written 2 books titled “Questions for the Lion Tamer: Delving into the Mystery that is DMT” and “Questions for the Lion Tamer 2: Swimming in Electric Endohuasca”, he believes that it is now time to take everything to the next level.

DMT Research

This entire field of research has been lagging tremendously since the 1970’s financially speaking. It is embarrassing that with an annual budget of over $39 billion dollars that the NIH still refuses to allocate any amount to endogenous DMT research.

One would figure that if the NIH can spend $3.2 million studying the effects of alcohol in monkeys, it can surely spend the same amount on a field that the general public is extremely interested in such as endogenous DMT.

In any case, it’s been estimated that there are nearly 2,500 billionaires in the world and likely over 50,000 hundred millionaires (people with $100,000,000 or more). There is enough private funding out there collecting dust that could change this endogenous DMT research industry in a very short time frame.



About DMT Quest

DMT Quest is a 501c3 non-profit organization that is focused on raising money and awareness for endogenous DMT research. This organization operates under a strict 100% transparency code in which all fundraising generated by DMT Quest will be publicly disclosed on our website and any expenses/allocations will be publicly posted as well (in a straightforward manner). This company was created in order to solve the problem of a lack of funding for endogenous DMT research. While a psychedelic renaissance of sorts is taking place currently (2019) in which companies such as MAPS have raised upwards of nearly $50 million for exogenous psychedelic studies, the endogenous research capital has been minimal at best. Based on internet statistics, the general public appears extremely interested in the discussion and results of endogenous DMT studies.

DMT Quest's Mission

Our mission is to create a brand that can assist in driving research funds into this specific field in order to satisfy the demands of the public and develop a greater understanding of human biology and potential. We have culminated a powerful list of advisors including Wim Hof, Dr. Jimo Borjigin, Dr. Dennis Mckenna, Dr. Roland Griffiths, Dr. Ede Frecska, Dr. Edith Ubuntu Chan, Dr. David Luke, Dr. Mauro Zappaterra, Dr. Andrew Gallimore, Dr. Jason Wallach, Dr. Ovidiu Brazdau, and Dr. Robert Davis.
