Food: Eat well. Good organic food is recommended. If you’re not vegetarian you can consume chicken or fish. To strengthen the brain we recommend eating ceviche (Peruvian food) and ask for tiger’s milk/leche de tigre (both without spicy_ sin aji) this is a concentrate juice of the ceviche.
Other: It is recommended that you refrain from have sex or masturbating a day before the retreat as can reduce physical energy levels making it harder to cope with the effects of ayahuasca.
It is suggested that the women who are menstruating or pregnant abstain from participating. Period pain and discomfort may result in a negative experience while journeying with Ayahuasca. However, if you do not experience sever pain or discomfort then it is ok for you partake.
We recommend waiting till the second or third day of a period to allow you to gauge the intensity of the pain.
You are required to fast and drink just water the 1st day of the retreat.
Cusco is 3500m above sea level and people sometimes get sick from spending time at this altitude. There are several forms of medication that can be taking to alleviate the effects of altitude sickness but the interaction of some of this medication can have negative effects with Ayahuasca. For this reason we recommend you look to relieve symptoms of altitude sickness by drinking coca leaf tea which is commonly available in guest houses and hotels. We suggest you that you drink coca leaf tea at the airport or on your flight to Cusco as this will help to mitigate the effects of altitude sickness, you can also buy shot of oxygen at the airport. If symptoms become sever please let us know.
