Ayahuasca is a potential catalyst for personal transformation with powerful spiritual, healing and therapeutic benefits.
While ayahuasca is commonly known as a natural brew for empowering the soul and bestowing spiritual insights, it’s also a potent medicinal concoction that can help provide holistic healing for the body and mind. Ayahuasca has medicinal abilities that have been shown to help with a wide variety of illnesses, emotional problems, and physical issues.
Since 2014, Kahpi Professor Draulio de Araujo, a researcher at the Brain Institute, in Natal, Brazil, has been investigating the effects of ayahuasca on a group of eighty people, half of whom suffer from severe depression. “If one word comes up, it is ‘tranquillity,’ ” he said. “A lot of our individuals, whether they are depressed or not, have a sense of peace after the experience.” — The New Yorker magazine, September 12, 2016
