Healing has always been a necessity for man. Because of this universal need, several healing methods have been known to man from time immemorial. Yet, specific procedures – many of which have proven most effective for emotional trauma and spiritual healing – have not found their way to be established in modern day medicine. Such techniques, while viewed poorly by Western Medicine until recently, form the foundation for many indigenous traditions of healing and have persisted for millenia across the globe. This “shamanic healing” speaks to a deeper need within the human psyche and blends spiritual, emotional, and physical treatments for a truly holistic and “whole person” healing.
Shamanic healing has its foundation in the use of plants for healing and therapeutic services. Many of these plant medicines are known to hold therapeutic value, forming the basis of pharmaceutical drugs and complimentary therapies for decades. But their healing value was recognized by the tribes that first used them long before they were ever recorded. The natives of the land first discovered many that are recorded now before they were further processed by pharmacies to produce drugs that can be sold in specific quantities to persons suffering from particular illnesses, ailments or diseases. This has been the basics of Shamanism
Examples of such plant medicine – all of which have medicinal value as accepted by Western Science – are aspirin which is procured from the bark of the willow plant; cocaine which is obtained from the leaves of coca (which is used ceremonially and therapeutically for a range of respiratory ailments in it’s natural form); cacao from which we derive the vasodilator Theobromine (and chocolate); and opiods/morphine from poppy flowers. These are just a few example, but many more plant-derived medicines have been accepted and utilized by modern medicine as we know it. However, many other plants with exceptional healing qualities are yet to be approved by medical science… largely due to the ethical constraints of our current modern society and systems, which depend largely on puritanical values that inherently discredit certain experiences or substances for reasons of piety, legality, or morality. Such plants include Ayahuasca, Psychedelic mushroom, Yopo, and Kambo…
Ayahuasca is a derivative of two other plants – Psychotria Viridis and Banisteriopsis caapi. This combination produces hallucinogenic effects, which facilitate the creation of new neuronal synapses to heal trauma and addiction at a structural level in the brain. The vital components N, N-Dimethyltryptamine (DMT) and Monoamine Oxidase combine to incite a psychedelic effect that elevates mood, balances the chemical structure of the brain, develops and heals the physical brain structure, and facilitates the reframing of traumatic events, emotional blockages, and addictive behaviors.
Helps enhance your mental stability
Increases Neurogenesis and Neuroplasticity
Rebalances brain chemistry to heal addictive behaviors and traumatic programming
Helps rid the body of toxins and parasites
Much like Ayahuasca, the mushroom is a profoundly healing medicine when administered properly. Many common mushrooms are edible, while others are poisonous. But others produce psychedelic effects that improve neuroplasticity and neurogenesis as well as promote deep changes in perception and cognition. Regardless of species, psychedelic mushrooms contain one or more of the following psychotropic tryptamines – psilocybin, baeocystin, psilocin, norbaeocystin, all of which act on your nervous system to heal the brain, which in turn heals the mind. Currently the use of psilocybin is on the cutting edge of research for CURING PTSD and similar traumatic disorders due to mushroom’s ability to rewire our percetioins and return us to a balanced state of connected understanding.
Helps enhance your mental stability
Increases the brain’s ability to adapt and rebuild
Provides you with an improved immunity
Increases vitamin D production in cells, which decreases depression and serotonin related illnesses
Yopo is a potent plant medicine of Amazonian origin derived from a perennial tree called Anadenanthera Peregrina. The beautiful thing about this plant is that it contains both N, N-Dimethyltryptamine (the same type of DMT found in Ayahuasca) and Bufotenin (the active tryptamine of Bufo Alavaris), so you can imagine having a double dose of healing goodness. It is administered by inhalation, which improves absorption across the blood-brain barrier, producing a nearly immediate soothing spiritual connection with your mind and soul, elevating you above reactionary emotional perceptions and broadening your emphatic view of personal traumas and emotional blockages.
An excellent soul retrieval plant
Helps to clear your immune system
Helps to improve your health mentally
Kambo is another substance used for traditional healing, but unlike the others it is not a plant. Rather than relying on plants or trees, the shamans who use this medicine partner with the frogs of the forest to provide a life saving medicine. Kambo utilizes skin secretions from the local giant monkey tree frog for powerful and purgative healing. It has been found to contain a potent cocktail of dozens of peptides and amino acids that bind to receptors of the brain to bring about a multitude of therapeutic effects. Among it’s many verified benefits, the various peptides in Kambo boost the immunity by triggering the immune system, reduce pain and aid addiction by binding to opiod receptors in the brain, stimulate the digestive and circulatory systems simultaneously to rid the body of toxins and parasites, and is thus far the most potent anti-inflammatory known on the planet. And, because of the body’s natural chemical reaction to Kambo’s purgative effects, once the medicine wears off you are left with a rather euphoric feeling of wellbeing and elation. With the cornucopia of benefits, Kambo is quickly becoming one of the most sought after alternative treatments for a range of ailments including arthritis, addiction, pain disorders, and even cancer.
