THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND
As you may have learned from my other publications, most important natural remedies for our health and longevity are medicinal herbs, our planet Earth being covered with. Used by mankind successfully since we entered this planet millions of years ago. For our physical and mental well-being. Just take, e.g., to the Philippines where modern medical science has verified – yes – more than 1,000 herbs meanwhile.
Same is with the rainforest in the Amazon region of South America. From there, only recently a type of ‘wonder herb’ has been scientifically validated most of us have never heard about before: Ayahuasca. With its name originating in the native Quechua language where ‘aya’ refers to ‘soul’ and ‘wasca’ means ‘vine’.
It is actually a blend of the leaves of the Psychotria viridis plant and stalks of a vine with the botanical name Banisteriopsis caapi , brewed and consumed as a tea. With hallucinogenic properties, offering not only spiritual but also medicinal benefits.
BENEFITS OF AYAHUASCA – SCIENTIFICALLY VALIDATED
The physical and mental benefits of Ayahuasca have been appreciated by the indigenes and their ‘curanderos’ (shaman healers) of South America (especially Brazil, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador) for thousands of years and scientifically validated today.
Those benefits for our health are, inter alia:
By reducing inflammation and oxidative stress, thus enhancing cognitive effect and the neuroprotective power of the brain.
Based on research at, inter alia, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine in Richmond, Virginia, the International Center for Ethnobotanical Education, Research & Service in Barcelona, Spain, and the University of Sao Paulo in Ribeirao Preto, Brazil.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
As you may know from my seminar “Veterans – How solve PTSD and other service-related health problems with Alternative Medicine?”, PTSD is a health issue especially of our veterans. So far being unsolved by conventional medicine. Fortunately, there are natural therapies to help.
One of those has been identified scientifically by, inter alia, the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI0 in Adelaide, Australia. According to their research, ayahuasca may retrieve repressed memories.
This mental health issue may be reduced potentially with ayahuasca as well, holding substances such as harmine which contribute to the production of neurons (neurogenesis). Even with a single dose of this herbal tea blend.
Based on research at, inter alia, Maastricht University in Maastricht, The Netherlands.
Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
According to research at, inter alia, Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Universidad de la Republica in Montevideo, Uruguay, ayahuasca may also help to handle MBSR successfully.
IN A NUTSHELL
