Dieta in Takiwasi - 2005

The Retreat/Dieta (commonly referred to as “Dieta” in traditional medicine), is the deepest therapeutic practice of traditional Amazonian medicine, stronger and more effective than ayahuasca itself, and necessary when taking ayahuasca to reinforce its effect. It consists of a 7-day retreat in isolation, in a very simple hut in the jungle, within the Botanical Reserve of Takiwasi, with the ritualized ingestion of the so-called "master plants", accompanied by a special diet and strict physical and psychological norms. The aim of the diet is a deep physical, psychic and spiritual cleansing starting from a deep energetic cleansing due to the intake of plants and the context of preparation, accompaniment and follow-up.
