Ancestral Medicines which are included with
the Arkana Sacred Valley / Machu Picchu to Amazon Ayahuasca Retreat Package
Ayahuasca (Yagé) is a sacred healing plant of Peru. Many visitors to ayahuasca retreats today seek the powerful healing it is known to bring. It can cure chronic depression, drug addiction, PTSD or alcoholism to physical illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease, psoriasis and even cancer.
San Pedro (Huachuma) cactus contains the well-known compound, Mescaline. Psychedelic journeys are similar to Peyote however, San Pedro’s effects are much more gentle and grounding. People report that their experience with is like being held in the loving embrace of an ethereal goddess.
Kambo (frog medicine/venom) is the secretion from the bright green giant monkey frog (Phyllomedusa bicolor—also known as the giant leaf frog) that lives in the north-west area of the Amazon rain forest. Indigenous tribes have used it as a prophylactic against malaria, and also to boost strength and stamina. The frogs are not injured from the collection of their secretions, which are obtained via scraping onto wooden “Kambo sticks”.
Nunu (Rape') is something we are also offering at our centre in the beginning of your Ayahuasca Retreat, and before each ceremony. Nunu is also known as the “Dust of The Elders”. This medicine is native to the Matses tribe and has been used by their people for thousands of years. Its primary ingredient tobacco, which is mixed with macambo nut, cacao, and the barks and leaves of medicinal trees from the Amazon jungle.
