Ayahuasca is a medicinal drink that is composed of the vine of Banisteriopsis Caapi and the leaves of the Psychotria Viridis plant. Together, these plants will give you spiritual and therapeutic benefits.
Benefits For the Mind
Those who have tried this psychoactive drink report feeling more aware of their body and mind. It has been found that people who had previously suffered from drug cravings say that the drink helped subside those urges, and research shows that this drink may be able to treat eating disorders along with many other diseases. Ayahuasca is composed of monoamine oxidase-hindering beta-carbolines that will activate receptors in the brain when combined with DMT. This will create a psychoactive feeling that can help treat mental health issues. It can also be of great help to those who suffer from trauma by helping them to become more aware of their trauma and triggers, allowing them to constructively deal with these issues.
Ayahuasca has shown to help drug users beat addiction. Drug and alcohol abusers have seen the same results from Ayahuasca as PTSD patients, where they have a realization about their trauma and receive chemical reconstruction of the receptors in their brain in order to confront the trauma that led them to the abuse of drugs in the first place. This psychoactive drink helps drug users decrease the number of cravings they get.
We have also seen benefits for those suffering from eating disorders. Users of Ayahuasca have been seen to have more cravings for food and higher serotonin levels. The chemical reconstruction from the plant has the same effect on everyone suffering from these psychological disorders.
Benefits for the Soul
Users often feel a boost of energy and a better sense of self-esteem after ingesting Ayahuasca. The boost in serotonin can help patients with depression since the drink will have a similar effect to that of antidepressants. For those suffering from depression, it has also been reported that they feel more aware of their triggers, giving them a clearer idea of how they can resolve their past trauma and move on. These benefits are good for the soul, as it will ease the hardship that sufferers go through with depression.
Benefits for the Body
The healing factors of Ayahuasca are mainly cleansing for the body. It can help cleanse the blood, liver, and gallbladder, meaning that is is great for decreasing the risk of diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and cancer. What Ayahuasca does is purge the body of illnesses that slow down the process of natural medicine. Increasing the effects of natural medicine is said to help decrease the growth of some cancers. It is said that the use of harmine and tetrahydroharmine will be able to increase and stimulate the birth of new neurons in the brain, which could slow down the effects of Alzheimer’s since it involves the death of neurons. Because of Ayahuasca’s cleansing effects on the body, taking it can decrease the risk of many illnesses that come from faulty blood flow, a malfunctioning liver, and a defective gall bladder. If you have a history of diabetes, Alzheimer’s, or cancer in your family, it might be good to give this drink a try.
