Why You Should Try a Ayahuasca Retreat in Peru

Ayahuasca is a form of dimethlytryptamine (DMT) which is a mixture of two plants: Ayahuasca vine and chacruna shrub. These are said to be native to the jungles of the Amazon. The indigenous people of the said region were the first to discover the healing effects of this mystical plant thousands of years ago.

Today, it is rapidly growing more popular as people from different parts of the world travel to the indigenous sites of Peru and neighboring countries to learn about the various health benefits of Ayahuasca, also locally referred to as yagé.

This powerful substance is an ancient psychoactive brew commonly prepared by shamans in many countries in South America. Being a form of DMT, it is not legal in most countries as it is known to cause hallucination, diarrhea, and other conditions.

However, the many people who have undergone an Ayahuasca retreat in Peru have found it to be wonderful, and as some would say, life-altering effects not only on the physical body but also on the mind and spirit.
