Ayahuasca is a powerful medicine and teacher plant that brings deep multi-level level healing physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. This is serious work that should not be entered into lightly – It certainly is not for recreation or amusement
The process requires courage, commitment, trust and surrender to receive the deepest healing. Trusting the medicine and surrendering to whatever it brings during ceremony, is how we get the most benefit from Ayahuasca. Allow it to do whatever it wants during ceremony. Since this is a deep detox and cleansing of body, mind and soul, the person may experience purging, vomiting, bowel movements as a way to release the toxins in the body.
Working with Ayahuasca also involves adherence to a special diet which prepares your body, mind and spirit to incorporate the healing energy of the brew.
To get the most from your time with Ayahuasca please abstain from the following foods both before and after your retreats:
- It is important also that 5 day before the ceremony, you have to take good care of your diet.
- Diet is not only about what you eat and drink, diet means watch out what you eat.
- Watch out what you drink Watch out what you say and watch out what you think.
- Please avoid to eat meat, it is good to eat vegetable and fruits. And some fish is okay. Because if you eat meat , the spirit of the meat could manifest on your journey during the ceremony.
- Cheese, milk, any alcoholic drinks is not advisable to eat as well. 5 to 3 days before the ceremony is advisable also not to have sex or ejaculation. So your full spiritual energy is strong.

Kambo is “one of the strongest natural antibiotics and aesthetics found in the world and one of the strongest, natural ways to empower our immune system.” ¹
Kambo is the name given to the traditional Shamanic frog poison cleanse that is used to strengthen and heal mind, body and spirit. The scientific name for this frog is Phyllomedusa bicolor or “Giant Monkey Frog”. This frog lives in the Northwestern part of the Amazon Rainforest, namely Colombia and on the border between Brazil and Peru and is used by indigenous tribes there to gain strength, immunity and hunting magic. This cute frog secretes a poisonous waxy poison from its skin, the potency of which repels all predators.
The poison from the Giant Monkey Frog is applied to the skin after small burns are made with the tip of a glowing stick. Once applied, Kambo stimulates a strong physical purge while toxins and ‘bad luck’ or ‘panema’ are eliminated from body and spirit.
Kambo is traditionally used by the Native people as ‘vaccine’ to ward off illness, bad luck, to give hunting strength and even to increase attractiveness! Kambo is a very exciting traditional shamanic healing modality and many people have reported immense physical and psychological benefit from its application. Italian scientist and Nobel Prize nominee, Vittorio Erspamer, described the poison from the Phyllomedusa bicolor frog as ‘a fantastic chemical cocktail with potential medical applications, unequaled by any other amphibian’. ²

Rape’ is sacred shamanic snuff medicine with profoundly healing and cleansing miracle medicine. They are made in a very sacred and labour intensive process, and consist of various Amazonia medicine plants, trees and leaves. Traditionally, they are applied by using a pipe made bamboo which is blown in the nostrils on both sides. Please note that the person may experience excess saliva and runny nose as a way to release the toxins and clear the energetic way of the body especially in the head area.
Sananga is made from the roots and bark of the Tabernaemontana undulata shrub. The root and bark of this plant are obtained from the Kaxinawá and Yawanawá tribe, This sacred and potent medicine is used for healing physical and spiritual ailments, by clearing the mind and energies and gaining a complete new way of perception and focus.
Sananga is made from the roots and bark of the Tabernaemontana undulata shrub a “milkwood” species in the family Apocynaceae, and comes directly from the Amazonian tribes peoples. This sacred and potent medicine is used for healing physical and spiritual ailments, by clearing the mind of distractive energies and allowing for a complete new way of perceiving and focusing. This Sananga is infused with intentions of absolute clarity and focus. Although Sananga is said to contain Ibogaine alkaloids there is actually little evidence to suggest this is in fact true. Tabernaemontanta is not actually a genus but a “sub-family”, and therefore also classified as “Tabernaemontanoidae”. McKenna reports that only some of the several dozen or so plants in this sub family contain ibogaine, others like ‘undulata’ may only have analgesic or sedative properties.
Usage and Medicinal Effects
The pure spirit of Sananga supports a deep cleansing of blocked energies on emotional, physical, and spiritual levels. Sananga can balance and increase your energies, and find the roots of your diseases and blockages, leading to a complete equilibrium, focus and peace of mind. Moreover, the drops will expand your spiritual vision and awareness, and enhance your ability to read others people´s intentions. Also, Sananga increases your long-range vision, which is important for visualizations and predictions of the future. Apart of this, the drops are also used to cure and improve a broad range of ocular problems (Lambert et al 2010), like myopia, depth and color perception, definition of images, and detection accuracy. Furthermore, this magical medicine is indicated in cases of severe eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataract, and blindness. As these drops can exert such powerful effects on your visualization, they are also commonly applied before or during Ayahuasca ceremonies, to increase visualization and spiritual insights.
Even though Sananga is famous for its effects on vision and visualization, this medicine is considered to be an indigenous all-purpose remedy. It is applied for febrifuge, emetic, diuretic, calmative, and several other diseases. Furthermore, Sananga is often used to cure skin illnesses (dermatitis), suppress appetite (Jernigan 2009), ease dental problems (Shepard 1999), and counteract snakebite wounds and poisoning, cure eye wounds and rheumatism (Sanz-Biset et al. 2009; Schultes 1979). Another important curative aspect of the Apocynaceae family is its widely explored antimicrobial activity, which showed that this family has strong antioxidant (Pereira et al. 2005), anticancer (Kingston et al. 1977; Gunasekera et al. 1980), antifertility/ contraceptive (Meyeret al. 1973), antipyretic (fever reducing), anti-inflammatory (Taesotikul et al. 2003), anti-mycobacterial (Pereira et al. 2005), and antimicrobial (Beek et al. 1984; Suffredini et al. 2002; Ruttoh et al. 2009) effects.
Traditionally, tribes like the Matsés use Sananga as a hunting tool to obtain a sharp perception and concentration, and to enable the detection of subtle movements in the dark jungle (Lambert et al 2010). Moreover, the drops can enable strong visualizations of the prey or the plant to be hunted, allowing for a quick and successful quest. Often Sananga is combined with other hunting tools, like Kambo, which further enhance the hunting skills. For most indigenous tribes, hunting means survival and therefore signifies an exceptionally important and crucial ability.
San Pedro cactus has been used to treat a broad range of physical, mental and emotional disorders, as well as people with addictions such as alcoholism. It has been used quite regularly throughout South America for a long time to enhance life and connect the people to “pachamana” (Spanish term for Mother Earth).
Shamans and natives have used San Pedro for at least 3000 years. The earliest known depiction of the cactus that dates back to 1300 BC is a carving of a mythological creature holding the cactus. San Pedro got its name because in mythology God hid the keys to heaven in a secret place and the Christian Saint who was named San Pedro used the powers of the cactus to uncover the secret hiding places of the keys and later the cactus was named after him.
Throughout the history of its use, San Pedro has been known to function as a powerful medicine with the ability to cure unknown diseases. While one may belittle this understanding as merely the superstition of primitive tribes in the Andes, there is in fact research suggesting medicinal benefits resulting from the ingestion of San Pedro. This research has shown that San Pedro is able to lower high blood pressure, reduce the risk of cardiac disease, treat nervous conditions and alleviate joint problems.
Psilocybin cubensis, a entheogenic species of fungi commonly known as “magic mushrooms,” has been part of human culture for thousands of years. Known to both ancient cultures and to modern science as being able to reliably produce a mystical experience, these mushrooms have been used for healing, vision quests, and divination by cultures across the globe, and our scientific understanding of their effects is growing immensely every year. While a complete understanding of how these entheogenic fungi operate in our brains, minds, and bodies still eludes us, we now know more than ever about their many uses and therapeutic benefits thanks to a surge in research and scientific interest. These new scientific findings also echo the understanding of the indigenous cultures who use magic mushrooms, highlighting just how advanced their understanding of these entheogens is, even though it’s based on generations of observational use rather than modern science.
Aside from the transcendent experiences that psilocybin can induce, researchers have also found that they can be used to treat a variety of mental and behavior disorders. Scientific studies have shown that magic mushrooms are effective at reducing the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder and are powerful tools in helping people quit smoking and alcohol addictions. One study known as the Concord Prison Experiment also showed that two psilocybin experiences paired with group therapy sessions reduced rates of recidivism by nearly 40%.
As we seek to understand exactly how magic mushrooms are able to have all these benefits, researchers have been looking at at the brain while under the effects of this powerful entheogen. A startling and fascinating finding by the University of South Florida found that psilocybin stimulated the growth and repair of brain cells in the hippocampus of lab mice, the brain region associated with emotion and memory. They also observed that mice who were given a low to moderate dose of psilocybin were able to extinguish fear conditioning much quicker than other mice, hinting that psilocybin might be an effective treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in humans.
Cultures like the Mazatec who used psilocybin cubensis ceremonially understood that the symptoms of trauma and mental disease (which we have a million different names for in modern medicine) are all fundamentally related to an individual’s relationship with their deepest self and understanding of the universe. When we treat the roots of a person’s relationship to their soul and how it intersects with the outside world, a myriad of benefits issue forth. Psilocybin it not just a hot new emerging treatment for modern stress and mental disorders, but an ancient ally from the plant and fungi world that has coexisted with and benefitted humans from the dawn of civilization. As we celebrate the modern renaissance of psychedelic research around psilocybin, we should be sure to remember that this is not so much about new discoveries, but rediscoveries of one of our most ancient spiritual and psychological coevolutionary assets.
