About Ayahuasca

If you want to know Ayahuasca and leverage its love for your well-being. have the sensitivity and strength of settling your relations with Ayahuasca in a way that, for the future, allows the best chance of approval. The harvest begins at the time of planting. And a person can make all the difference. Ayahuasca is part of the called master plants,  which also included our national peyote. It is known as “Granny” because as a grandmother, It is a hard teacher but the lessons cover us with peace and love. Ayahuasca brew is the psychedelic concoction ritually used by shamans, healers, or teachers ayahuasqueros from Amazon ethnicities, for more than five thousand years to expand consciousness. Ayahuasca, yagé, purge, or Daime are some of the names used to refer to this ancient and sacred medicine.

The concoction is made by mixing two or more pharmacologically active substances: the liana Ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapi) and Chacruna (Psychotria viridis), which are crushed and cooked in boiling water for up to 16 hours. Ayahuasca has been the crux of healing and spiritual life in the vast Amazon basin since time immemorial. The synergy between the two active elements is the diemetriltriptamina (DMT) in the brain. DMT is not active when given orally unless it is accompanied by an inhibitor of MAO (monoamine oxidase), as in the case of ayahuasca. DMT is a triptamínico alkaloid, which is responsible for the dream's unconscious REM sleep. It is also responsible for lucid dreams. It is said that the body only releases DMT at birth and death, which has become very popular in its synthetic acquisition by many people. But the DMT can be achieved compared to ayahuasca has absolutely nothing to do.

Western education made us believe that the transmission of knowledge is verbal and written, so the first step to facing an experience in the process of ayahuasca is willing and perceptive to teaching will come on the other side. I mean a “process” as the teaching exercise begins before the night of the ceremony and the work of medicine continues indefinitely over time. Prior teaching begins with changes in dietary habits. There are many people who do not do the diet, which modifies it, it was misinformed about her or who have taken ayahuasca themselves many times that invent their diet. I guess everyone wants to live the experience, but when it’s your first time and you’ll do it with a confidently-of shaman, you’d better adjust to its guidelines if you want to avoid a hard time with the plant. Some shamans will ask one month prior to the diet and other shamans just a  week, but the common goal of the diet is to purify your body, and the physical blow to take yage is not so stormy. The concoction you will purge and clean so that the more “contaminated” is your body, the more you feel the jolt of the purge. The diet is basically this: do not eat red meat the last two days, avoid eating any animal, do not eat processed foods or irritants such as spicy or coffee almost I die with that restricción, no alcohol or recreational drugs or pharmaceutical, non-dairy, no sex, break the three days prior to work and maintain the diet three days for best results
