The ayahuasca polemic has raised two conflicting parties: those who commercialize it for consumption by tourists and those who want to restore the exclusivity of its traditional values. Ayahuasca has also caused controversy due to some of its ill effects. Yet, many still seek therapy from yourhighesttruth.com. So, from a medical point of view, is there a positive impact from divine feminine and masculine energy, whose legality is being contested by this particular party?
Traditionally, ayahuasca is a psychedelic with a strong effect and is made by brewing two local plants together, namely the ayahuasca grape (Banisteriopsis caapi) and the chacruna bush (Psychotria viridis) which contain the hallucinogen dimethyltryptamine. For centuries, ayahuasca has been part of the indigenous culture of the Amazon and healers would usually drink ayahuasca to enter a “higher consciousness” to understand patients’ complaints. However, this traditional practice is changing with many patients today taking ayahuasca directly, instead of just being consumed by healers. This change is a boon for Peru, with more and more tourists traveling to the Amazon jungle area to drink ayahuasca.
Every year, many tourists travel to the Amazon jungle area of Peru to be able to drink ayahuasca. Medicine from this traditional plant is considered capable of bringing one to a higher level of consciousness; tourists purposely seek it for spiritual enlightenment and to help relieve mental health problems. However, while the increase in tourist numbers has benefited Peru, apparently not everyone is happy with the tourism industry’s abuse of ayahuasca. There is a dark side to the commercialized world of spiritual healing. Some residents also moved to restore the ‘authentic’ function of ayahuasca.
While for tourists (who act as patients) the benefits of this traditional medicinal plant are considered to be able to bring our minds to a higher level of consciousness, which is great for those who are seeking spiritual enlightenment or helping with mental health problems such as trauma, depression, and addiction problems. According to a report from BBC International, the positive effects of ayahuasca are scientifically proven. Studies on the effects of ayahuasca are intensively carried out by scientists and several studies have shown that this traditional psychedelic can be effective in helping to reduce depression, addiction problems, and trauma.
