How Ayahuascs Is Saving Lives (Video)
As more and more people from around the world begin to wake up and take control of their own lives and begin to take responsibility for their health and well-being, instead of putting their trust in the hands of health institutes, we see a pattern begin to emerge. It is not a conspiracy theory any longer that the health institutes in the West care more about profit than the well-being of the people who approach them for help. Britons are taking anti-depressants in greater quantities than ever before, new figures have disclosed, with a near 25% rise in prescriptions in the last three years alone. According to official NHS data, more than 53 million prescriptions were handed out for drugs such as Prozac and Seroxat in England last year – a record high, and a rise of 24.6 per cent since 2010. Those figures are mirrored in other European countries and in the United States the rate of antidepressant use in this country among teens and adults (people ages 12 and older) increased by almost 400% between 1988–1994 and 2005–2008.
Although these drugs are generally considered to be safe by the media and amongst medical professionals and patients, a close look at the evidence suggests otherwise. Antidepressants have serious and potentially fatal adverse effects, cause potentially permanent brain damage, increase the risk of suicide and violent behavior in both children and adults, and increase the frequency and chronicity of depression. Chronic use of antidepressants also promotes dependency on drugs rather than empowering people to make positive life changes, and places a tremendous burden on healthcare systems in the U.S. and abroad.
In recent years thousands of people from the West have started traveling across the world to South America to drink the magical brew, Ayahuasca, which is said to not only hold answers to some of the most complicated questions in life, but also in many cases help cure complicated conditions such as PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, Cancer, Heroine Addiction and the list goes on.
If this is true then why do we not hear about it on Main Stream Media or at our local GP Office? Well, the main reason is because Ayahuasca is a Schedule 1 drug in the west. The reason as to why its Illegal is open to debate and is not the main topic of this article. However, we are beginning to see more and more doctors from the west start to speak out about the benefits of Ayahuasca and other related plants, such as Ibogaine in helping and in most cases curing a long list of conditions. In many cases as an example, Ibogaine has been found to cure Heroine Addiction with a single session, helping addicts kick a decade long habit in less than 36 hours. Amazing!
Above is the story of Robert, who had been suffering from Depression and Anxiety for most of his life. His condition had began to deteriorate over time to the point where he had considered suicide. Having heard about Ayahuasca he started to do his research as a last resort. Soon after, synchronicity’s in his life landed him in Ecuador, where after several ceremonies with a qualified Shaman, drinking Ayahuasca and San Pedro, his life was turned around. The powerful healing qualities of these plants did more for him in 3 months than the Western medication & therapy did for him almost his whole life. His story is not the only one, its a drop from an ocean of stories just like his, where these plants are making changes to the lives of people in extraordinary ways.
Its time that we started to look at the laws we have in place, which are doing more harm than good and getting in the way of research in to these plants. Its not far fetched to say that we could dramatically change this world by simply allowing people to dive in to the depths of their own consciousness. Being able to have control of ones own mind is a birth given right and no one should have a say in what one can consume, especially when it can have such extreme healing potential. Watch Robert discuss his condition and how Ayahuasca saved his life, do your own research and understand the simple fact that a lot of answers that we seek are right there in front of us, we have lost touch with nature and that is one of the main reasons we are in such a mess right now. Once we reconnect, the opportunities that will open up for us can be endless. There really is magic out there and the more we look in to things the more clear it becomes that certain individuals want to keep this fact from the majority, to trap us in an illusion, to keep us in a state of consciousness that only benefits them and not us.
You did not come in to this world, you came out of it. Alan Watts
