What is the Ayahuasca diet?
The ayahuasca diet or set of dietary recommendations that have been developed by the indigenous groups who have been working with the medicine for many generations. The central aspects of the dieta we follow at the Santuario Huishtin are common to the teachings of all ayahuasquero/as across the Peruvian Amazon. In the case of some of the food restrictions, there is also definitive scientific evidence that they are essential for safety. We advise guest coming to our retreats to begin the diet at least two weeks before a retreat and to continue the diet for at least two weeks after the last ceremony. It is essential to continue the diet to ensure the ikaros you have received and any possible plant remedies you are prescribed, are given sufficient time to integrate.
The food prepared at the Santuario Huishtin is prepared by our wonderful cooks who provide you with a well rounded, healthy and plentiful diet throughout your stay whilst adhering to the essential restrictions.
