A study of about 12 thousand people was conducted since 2017 in attempts to measure the plant’s efficiency in healing/improving Anxiety and Depression.
Here are the results:
The study focused on the subsample reporting depression or anxiety diagnoses at time of Ayahuasca consumption.
Results of participants reporting depression or anxiety at the time of consuming Ayahuasca:
- 78% reported that their depression was better, from which. 🌱
- 46% Reported it had ‘very much’ improved. 🌱
- 32% Reported it was completely resolved. 🌱
- (while) 70% of those with anxiety reported that their symptoms were better. ☀️
- 54% Reporting it had ‘very much’ improved. ☀️
- 16% Reported it had ‘completely resolved. ☀️
A range of factors were associated with greater reported affective symptoms improvement, including subjective mystical experience, number of Ayahuasca sessions, and number of personal psychological insights experienced.
These last variables are the reason why we place so much emphasis on our attendees pre & post processes.
Through proper guidance, the depth of the experiences is greater and through proper integration the insights are better grounded into their day to day life.
This is just one of hundreds of clinical studies that have evaluated the use of Ayahuasca for therapeutic and transcendental purposes.
And to those that compare the medicine with any other drug.
I’ve never seen somebody drug themselves into less anxiety and depression.
Never have I found somebody who drugged themselves into healing.
Drug or Medicine is a label that is placed depending on what side of the fence you’re sitting.
For native tribes, a lot of today’s “modern medicine” is seen as drugs and highly toxic due to the numbing, dependency and side effects it often produces.
So, before you judge – inform yourself and remember that modern medicine is very new and has been around for a few hundred years while ancestral plant medicine has been around for thousands of years.
When done in accordance with the traditions, there’s nothing experimental about it. 🔥🙏🏼🔥
