Ayahuasca treatment is a new revolutionary way of treating addictions. It is obtained from the plants Banisteropsiscapii and Psychotriaviridis that extend geographically from the source to the mouth of the Amazon River. It is consumed as a beverage. The countries where Ayahuasca originated and is widespread are Peru, Colombia and Ecuador, and it later expanded to Guinea, Venezuela, Suriname and the Northern part of Brazil.
Ayahuasca is considered to be as old as Egyptian civilization. It is estimated to be about five centuries older than Gilgamesh and about 3000 years older than Christianity. It is deeply rooted in the mythology and philosophy of the tribes and has become an integral part of their lives.
What is Ayahuasca used for?
