The Amazon rainforest is a mysterious place; the vast river and extensive jungle hide many secrets, one of which is Ayahuasca. This is a psychedelic concoction made from the combination of chacruna and chaliponga plants. For generations, the native people in the Amazon have been using it to cleanse their minds and souls. If you’re looking to take a spiritual trip into your own psyche, Ayahuasca may be the way to go. To ensure that Ayahuasca is effective, you have to follow a strict diet, which is what we’re going to discuss in this article.

The Importance of Ayahuasca Dieta

The tradition of Ayahuasca has been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years, and they mean a lot to the native shamans. It’s a healing ceremony that can help you cope with psychological turmoil and connect you with the inner spiritual side. The shamans who perform the rituals are teachers, masters, and leaders of the local tribes. They are respected by the people, and you must pay them the same due respect. The native people claim that the knowledge of Ayahuasca was given to them by the spirits of the plants themselves, and this is why the medicine is valued so highly.

The Ayahuasca concoction has many potent physical and psychological effects. Some have claimed that they experience nausea, stomach pain, hallucination, sensitivity to light, and psychedelic trips, while others say that they didn’t feel anything at all. There are many factors that can affect the potency of Ayahuasca, and one of which is the food we consume. This is why it’s mandatory that you follow the strict diet that the shaman offers, as that will keep you safe and ensure that the spiritual drink does what it’s supposed to. Some medications have been found to be very dangerous or even lethal if taken with Ayahuasca. The native diet is designed to cleanse your body of all the chemicals and lipids to ensure that the Ayahuasca is potent.

What is Ayahuasca Dieta

Typically, those who are looking to take Ayahuasca will have to prepare themselves for a few days leading up to the night when they drink the concoction. During this time, you will be served flavorless food with no additional spices or seasonings. Even strong-scented plants such as peppers, onions, and garlic aren’t allowed. Furthermore, there will only be a limited variety of meat, if at all, and you are not allowed to drink alcohol or caffeinated drinks, no matter the case. If you’re looking to take an Ayahuasca treatment, you have to follow these three rules:

  1. Follow the dietary guidelines and food restrictions strictly
  2. Prepare your body, mind, and soul
  3. Purge your systems of drugs and chemicals if you can

Why Take Ayahuasca in the First Place?

The world that we live in doesn’t revolve around us, especially if you live in the city. You are a part of a bigger mechanism that drives the world, and sometimes, these parts are overlooked and left to rust. It’s easy to lose the sense of who you are and the connection to the spiritual side of things when you immerse yourself fully in a world that doesn’t allow you to be who you are. The Ayahuasca treatment is intended to reconnect you to your spiritual roots so that you have a better understanding of who you are in a deeper level. You may see stories of when you’re a kid, a deceased relative whom you loved, or hear voices that resonate in your mind. These are common hallucinations that people have, and they may put many off from the idea of taking the treatment. We understand that this doesn’t sound like something most people will want to experience, and that’s completely understandable. For those who are willing to venture into their own mind to restore a sense of self and realign your spirituality, Ayahuasca is the way to go.
