THE CONTRIBUTION OF AMAZONIAN TRADITIONAL MEDICINES TO THE TREATMENT OF ADDICTIONS: THE EXAMPLE OF THE TAKIWASI CENTER.
September 2015

The approach to dependencies raises the question of the validity and dangerousness of modified state of consciousness induced. Ancient medicines, especially in the Amazon, show a thousand-year-old use not only without damaging consequences, but with clear individual and collective benefits, and without provoking any dependence.

HEIR - TRANSMISSION OF TRADITIONAL MEDICAL KNOWLEDGE

Master healers consider the art of healing as a gift, that comes from God through the spirits of plants. What we have observed in the Takiwasi Center, based on our experience and contacts with master healers, is that the gift manifests itself at the precise moment when they are healing from an illness. Therefore, first they are patients, who have gone to the doctor to be treated for some physical or spiritual evil. When the gift manifests itself, teachers often say that "the plant loves you", and invite the person to continue taking the master plants, this time not to cure the illness, but to start the learning process. Through the process of healing-learning the person will discover his art, method and specialty. Throughout the process he will be accompanied by his master, because in the Amazon it is not conceivable to take the master plants without a guide that help us re-find our way. In this video we can appreciate the participation of Don Solon Tello Lozano, master healer from Iquitos.
