Connor Murphy is a fitness and social media personality with a huge following online. He currently has 2.4 million subscribers on YouTube and 450,000 fans on Instagram. The growth of his profiles has peaked and is in a slow decline. Followers have become worried about his mental and physical health. The type of content he is producing is drastically different from earlier videos. From flexing with his shirt off in public to posting videos talking about the benefits of drinking your own urine.
In May 2021, he uploaded two videos entitled ‘RIP Connor Murphy’ and ‘Connor Murphy’s Final Words’. Faking his own death led to family and friends becoming really concerned. The police called over to his home multiple times to check on him and Connor has spent time in a mental hospital to get psychologically evaluated. According to Connor, doctors believe he’s either bipolar or suffering from drug-induced psychosis.
YouTuber Patrick Lyons stated Connor consumed a substance known as Ayahuasca for the first time over a year ago. It’s a very strong psychedelic and is illegal in most countries. When ingested the drug can cause hallucinations and what some call “ego death” which explains his erratic behaviour. In addition to altering a person’s perception of time and emotions, psychedelics also affect all of their senses.
Losing his gains
Initially, Conor Murphy claimed he was taking Ayahuasca for religious reasons. He even claimed to have reached a point of enlightenment where he stopped doing funny pranks and began doing mundane ones. He lost weight after 40 days of fasting, which he had done previously. It’s possible that Connor Murphy’s muscle loss was exacerbated by his fasting and Ayahuasca use.
At first, Murphy argued his case based on his thinning hair. He insisted it was hereditary. The situation has recently gotten worse, and now everyone is wondering what’s up with him.
It’s possible that Connor Murphy isn’t getting enough nutrients because he’s injecting his body with toxic substances. It’s important to remember that healthy hair requires a certain combination of nutrients, and substance abuse can strip your body of these essentials, leaving you with thinning or graying hair.
Addiction and Hair Loss
Addiction has been shown to cause hair loss as one of the most noticeable side effects. Hair cycles can be disrupted by drugs such as hallucinogens, which cause premature rest in the follicles or stop mitotic activity in the cells altogether. It causes noticeable hair loss if used regularly for an extended period.
Despite his strange behaviour over the last year, it appears the old Connor Murphy is starting to come back. Recent uploads on his channel have subscribers excited again and hopeful Connor has recovered from his personal demons. It also looks like his physique has improved, the delts and pecs are slowly returning!
