Ayahuasca 3 days Ayahuasca 6 days
1987, it was legalized in Brazil, a beverage that had been forbidden for many years because it was supposed to be alucinogenous
and so, considered as a drug.
this beverage, known
and used for centuries for health uses, was never taken seriously.
the beginning, human beings have used plants in their search of
a superior knowledge, and probably were plants who gave men consciousness to display all his potential, giving birth to homo sapiens.
the same way that we read in the Holy Bible that a forbidden fruit
opened Adam and Eve eyes, we could well point they were plants which first made changes in human beings minds.
ancestors used every resource available in their homelands not only for medicinal purposes but also as a way to interact
with the world and their gods.
these are called “entiogenous” which means “God inside us” , and
are mostly plants that let us have a full, vital
experience and with remarkable results in our behavior and the way we live our surrounding world.
there exists an infinite
number of “entiogenous” and not all are available and can be used freely by everyone; this products have to be carefully supervised by professionals
or by experts in their use.
many countries, these products should be only prescribe
by doctors or are forbidden.
original word to name this beverage, is “Ayahuasca” a quechua word
that means “rope that links the world of the dead with the world
of the living”. This
language is very extended in South America : Peru, Ecuador, Colombia,
part of the Brazilian Amazon, Bolivia, North of Argentina, and North
of Chile. That is, the ancient territory of the Inca Empire.
more recent years, it
has been known as “Santo Daime” which means “to give santity” and
has more relation with Portuguese spoken in Brazil, but both names
are correct to named it.
beverage is produced by a mixture of various plants and where a liana or vine (Banisteriopsis
caapi) plays a
think that the beverage
is obtained just boiling
this vine and the resultant juice is Ayahuasca, but this is not true. The vine by itself doesn’t produces any effect. Nevertheless, it contains a very powerful inhibitor of the monoxidase that combined with other vegetals which probably contains
DMT (dimetiltriptamina) produces
the known entiogenous effects.
are 90 different plant species that contains DMT and some have this
effects. Others could
be used in combination to produce Ayahuasca.
who use this beverage in rituals to heel their spiritual and medical
illness have different sensations; such as cold, heat, sweat etc. This has a lot to do with the vegetals used in the preparation. Active synthetic components
are forbidden everywhere, but no South America country forbids the use of Ayahuasca in its natural state or prepared
according to ancient and traditional recipes.
very common to find “curanderos” (masters) that treat sickness only with Ayahuasca and are known as “ayahuasqueros” due
to their skills in the preparation and use of this beverage that
contributes to physical and spiritual health .
means that Ayahuasca is considered a sacred and therapeutical beverage; an important goal, considering human beings in its context and not as a organism that only responds to external stimulus .
use of entiongenous has been extended from South America to Europe through its religious movements which openly and without restrictions practice their religion known as Church of Santo Daime. They are known as “daimistas”. Also towards north, in California, USA, there exist plantations of this vine to produce Ayahuasca.
The different countries that consume Ayahuasca give different names according to
their own languages. It
is prepared for different uses and is administer according to different
ages, objectives, purposes etc. This means that a
“chaman” takes it for clarividence, dream interpretations etc. An older person to make its life more full and productive. To youngster, it is use to make them stronger and to prepared
their personalities so that they do not undermined their future development.
is also remarkable the different cultural trends that there exists
and which are strongly
against the use of Santo Daime or Ayahuasca because they considered
that they are related with religious or sincretic sects that try
to separate from reality those persons who
get in their discipline. Besides, they argue facts that
must alert authorities; but actually the problem is not the product
itself but the misuse
of it, just as alcohol introduce by Europeans in America during
could be used for different uses according to those who used it. The fact is that Ayahuasca is not forbidden and its use only
in certain places.
Daime or Ayahuasca is used to catalyzed de process of spiritual
growth with therapeutical benefits to correct behavior and physical
illness caused by different way of seeing the world. It unifies, oriental believes with christianism. From orient it takes the knowledge to unify individual soul
with universe, karma, reincarnation, meditation etc. While from
christianism takes charity, forgiveness, generosity, love and Christian
