Many individuals who have integrated microdosing ayahuasca into their weekly routine report the alleviation of depression and anxiety, insights into aspects of daily life, lower stress levels, higher awareness, greater presence, compassion, satisfaction, and peace, among other positive changes.
Though macrodoses of ayahuasca are more commonly known, shamans also have a history of microdosing the substance.
Studies are showing that ayahuasca therapy may be effective in treating depression and addiction. As this ancient brew becomes more mainstream, we may see it become a widespread and accepted form of therapy.
Microdosing has tremendous potential to help you heal from clinical conditions, enhance your professional performance, and generally improve your quality of life.
Here are some of the benefits people experience from microdosing when done in a structured and intentional manner:
More energy and better coordination
Developing clarity around your motivations helps to orient your sense of self, generating enhanced awareness for your microdosing day.
Ayahuasca amplify and intensify the mind’s object of focus. By creating a clear and firm intention, you improve the likelihood of experiencing meaningful results from your microdosing protocol.
So, before microdosing, consider these questions:
Is It Necessary to Follow a Dieta When Microdosing?
When it comes to microdosing, the dieta protocol is a little more flexible. While it may be beneficial to heed dieta recommendations for spiritual and energetic purposes, the physical side effects from not following a strict diet will be much less severe, if there are any side effects at all.
There is a huge difference in the proportions of alkaloids in a ceremonial dose of ayahuasca compared to a microdose.
So what are the main reasons for following dieta in a microdosing protocol?
Spiritual cleansing: Many of the ayahuasca dieta recommendations are for the purpose of clearing out your system so that you are more energetically sensitive and able to receive the healing benefits of the brew. Eating a lighter, healthier diet will allow you to be more receptive to the healing potentials of working with the B. caapi vine.
Physical contraindications: If you want to be extra cautious about the potential physical side effects from combining B. caapi with certain foods, following the dieta will ensure that you are safe from even a tinge of risk of hypertension or serotonin syndrome, for example.Here, we’ll take you through both of these parallel factors and explain how they are relevant to microdosing.
The Spiritual Cleansing Benefits of the Dieta for Microdosing
Just as with preparation for an ayahuasca ceremony, there are spiritual reasons for going on a dieta beyond just the risk of physical contraindications.
The nature of the diet, especially removing things like alcohol, pork, and foods that are especially salty or sweet can help to make you feel more receptive to spiritual insight.
Blander foods of a more alkalizing nature will help to produce a calm mind and more balanced emotional temperament.
These factors might be useful for you to receive more benefit from your microdosing experience, but they are not compulsory to the same degree as when preparing for a ceremony.
The main purpose of a dieta is for purification on the physical, mental, spiritual and emotional planes. If you are looking for cleansing or release on a spiritual level, following the dieta will support your intention.
EVERY TWO DAYS
For example, if you start on Friday night, the next time would be Monday Night. You will take the plants tea EVERY TWO DAYS, starting at night and with a minimum of two hours after dinner.
Depending on how much medicine you are ordering, we will alter your microdose by taking it during some mornings.
ONE LITER gives you to microdose for around three months.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I TAKE?
A standard full spoon for soup.
In our private consultation we will find together the right dosage for you.
One Liter - 250 EUR
Shipping Included within EU, outside EU shipping is pay extra.
Half Liter - 180 EUR
Shipping Included within the EU, outside EU shipping is paid extra.
The price includes a CONSULTATION, TAROT and ENERGY READING
HOW TO STORAGE THE BOTTLE?
The tea needs a dark and cold place to be stored. I will recommend to save half a liter in the freezer and keep the other half in the refrigerator. Fermentation is a normal process, and if your notes the tea is fermenting, you only have to boil it for 10 minutes on low fire and add some water.We are more than happy to instruct you later on if you need to do this.
Ayahuasca Vine Extract
It helps to OPEN at different levels. The energy will find what has to be worked. A meditation before taking the tea is always recomend to set intentions and connect with this plant's spirit. You can find several scientific studies that show the Ayahuasca vine effects in the brain and how it's helping to restore important neuronal connections to have a balanced life. It is not a mistake to hear often that every change starts in our heads.
It is the plant of the heart and communication. It is well known to work with emotions on different levels. Opening to them, showing them and helping the process give to the feelings they need. Bobimsana is a plant that many shamans use to receive their healing music or chantings known as Icaros. It is a plant connected with the water element and growths near rivers helping to hold the water channels, so there are no floods. As well the spirit of this plant is connected with the mythological spirit of the mermaids.
A PERSONALIZED TEA CAN ALSO BE MADE JUST FOR YOUR NEEDS
Neither standard nor enhanced drug tests screen for DMT, the psychedelic component of ayahuasca. And since it isn’t chemically similar to any of the drugs screened for, it’s also unlikely to trigger a false positive.MAOIs, the other key component of the brew, aren’t screened for either. In fact, they’re present in a large number of mainstream pharmaceuticals anyway, including antidepressants.
Does marijuana interfere with ayahuasca microdosing?
Marijuana, while safe to ingest in conjunction with an ayahuasca microdosing regimen, has the potential to amplify, or conversely, obscure, the effects of the microdose. This is largely due to its psychoactive nature. Any consciousness altering substance can impact the feel, benefits, and experience of microdosing with ayahuasca.
There are two main sources of risk when taking ayahuasca: hypertension, and serotonin syndrome.
Hypertension is an increase in blood pressure. The monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) in the ayahuasca vine are capable of increasing blood pressure, so before you do an ayahuasca ceremony you are advised to not take any medications that will increase your blood pressure. This includes MAOI medications, which are commonly prescribed as antidepressants.
When it comes to microdosing with ayahuasca vine, we don’t know for sure how much these tiny quantities of MAOIs are going to affect your blood pressure, so it may not be necessary (or even safe) to stop your medications cold turkey.
However, it’s important to be mindful of this risk, and take regular breaks from your microdosing protocol to allow your body to re-adjust.
Serotonin syndrome is a theoretical risk of ayahuasca ceremonies, due to the high levels of serotonin that the brew produces in the body.
However this is much less of a risk with microdosing ayahuasca vine, as the beta-carbolines will not induce a huge rush of serotonin, and the amounts are so tiny there is no chance of serotonin levels reaching harmful levels.
However, we don’t yet know what the effects of frequent microdosing are on your serotonin system.
It’s possible that taking ayahuasca vine for long periods, without adequate breaks, could gradually build up your serotonin to unhealthy levels. If you are on any kind of medications, it’s a good idea to track your blood pressure, and be aware of symptoms like headaches, dizziness, or tremors. Stop microdosing if you experience these.
Here are the medications and substances we would advise you to absolutely avoid, even during a microdosing protocol with the pure vine:5-MeO-DMT & Bufo alvarius. 5-MeO-DMT has potential contraindications with the harmala alkaloids in ayahuasca.
At least two deaths that have been recorded in the medical literature where harmaline and 5-MeO-DMT have been found in autopsies. You should avoid 5-MeO-DMT while microdosing with ayahuasca vine.
Lithium and Tramadol can cause seizures when mixed with serotonergic psychedelics.
Although the ayahuasca vine is not primarily serotonergic, it does slightly increase serotonin levels, so we’d advise against combining it with lithium or tramadol.Beyond these main contraindications, we also suggest that you avoid taking any other drugs during your microdosing routine, to allow you to discover benefits. For example, if you’re drinking lots of coffee or taking amphetamines during your microdosing period, it will be hard to know what effect the microdosing is having!
Avoiding Tyramine-Containing Foods The beta-carbolines in the ayahuasca vine block the monoamine oxidase (MAO) enzyme, which normally is an important part of your metabolism. MAO is essential to process the amino acid tyramine, and if excess tyramine starts circulating in your body there is a risk of dangerously high blood pressure.
This is why, when preparing for an ayahuasca ceremony, it’s important to refrain from eating foods high in tyramine – otherwise, your body will struggle to process it.
When consuming small amounts of the vine, such as what is practiced during a microdosing protocol, the dangers of this contraindication are not as severe.
However, since you are likely taking the drops every day, it is still of value to generally avoid these foods as much as possible – especially if you suffer from high blood pressure.
Foods that contain tyramine include:
Fermented foods like soy sauce, fermented tofu, and sauerkraut
Nutritional supplements like protein powders
Chocolate (in large amounts)
Peanuts (in large amounts)If you are especially sensitive to diet, or if you have high blood pressure, make sure to track your response to microdosing and take a break if you experience any symptoms like high blood pressure, headaches, or digestive discomfort.
