– I first settled in Peru and became acquainted with the healing medicine of the jungle three years ago. Having experienced the amazing healing power, I was impressed with this ancient shamanic ceremony and is happy to arrange tours in this extraordinary country. As to the case with the tourist, if he died from this drink, then most likely it’s his own fault. After all, before the ritual of taking a sacred broth you need to follow a special diet and is under the supervision of experienced shamans. Besides, the shaman himself assigns the appropriate portion of the freshly prepared beverage. Because herbal remedy has a powerful effect, so oneself can’t count on the portions. These basic safety rules people should follow and when conventional drugs or biological additives.
A sacred plant of the Amazon, Ayahuasca is recognized as a national heritage of Peru. The Institute of culture of that country, the international organization of shamans, and even the Ministry of health stated that the traditional knowledge of healers and shamans, as well as the use of Ayahuasca for medical purposes is considered a cultural treasure. These ceremonies are the Foundation of the culture of the Amazonian tribes and the ancient Incas.
Note that shaman’s broth has a medicinal value for humans – it is often used as immunostimulator.
The basis of the sacred drink is a strong decoction of tropical Ayahuaska vine or Banisteriopsis Caapi . The stalks of the plant soaked in hot water, then add a small quantity of the decoction of other herbs. This concoction gives a psychedelic effect, from which the person loses the ability to navigate in space and to perceive the world around us. Peruvian shamans carefully used a decoction of medical and psychological health problems, awareness and spirituality.
It should be noted that in Russia , the U.S. and Europe, some of the ingredients of Peruvian shamanic potions are banned .
