The Potential Of DMT For Ayahuasca Therapy
The DMT molecule causes, according to those who have consumed it, the sensation of euphoria accompanied by dynamic hallucinations. This is characterized mainly by the presence of geometric shapes and their transcendental nature; in many cases, they include the perception of gods, from the collective conscience of Earth creatures, etc. Many people have tried this substance claim that it has helped them achieve spiritual revelation about themselves or their relationship with the environment, including the cosmos. In some cases, stories of this experience include magical phenomena such as trips to other dimensions and contact with beneficial spirits. This makes some people choose to visit places in California to do ayahuasca to heal themselves psychologically and spiritually.
On the other hand, it is common that the consumption of ayahuasca causes adverse physical reactions, especially nausea and diarrhea, as well as acute emotional distress. Excessive consumption can cause serotonin syndrome, which is characterized by the appearance of tremors, seizures, hyperthermia, and sweating and can even cause death. Compared to other hallucinogens, including the psilocybin mushroom and prominent LSD, ayahuasca acts with greater speed and intensity, but the duration of the effect is lower. If ingested orally, they are stored for about 3 hours, but they only last between 5 and 15 minutes if they are given by inhalation or intravenously.
At present, research is being carried out on the therapeutic effect of possible ayahuasca in different medical applications. However, the field of scientific literature is still at a very early stage. A very striking study was carried out by the Beckley Foundation, which links ayahuasca with neurogenesis, the formation of neurons in the brain. It should also be remembered that since ancient times Amazon’s original inhabitants have used ayahuasca as a laxative to eliminate parasites (especially worms) and “negative energy” from the body and mind. In this last understanding, ayahuasca is associated with a relaxed character, although it is true that consumption can cause anxiety.
