Take this information seriously.
A decoction of "perfume liana" (Banisteriopsis caapi) and chacruna (Psychotria viridis) is absolutely safe for a healthy body. But in combination with narcotic and psychoactive substances, as well as some medications, Ayahuasca can cause serious harm to health, up to and including death. Therefore, please review this information carefully!
Stop taking these substances, 7 days and preferably 14 days, before your ceremony:
SSRIs - selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (eg, paxil, fevarin, zoloft);
MAOIs - monoamine oxidase inhibitors (for example, azilect, yumex, rasagiline);
psychoactive substances, primarily MDMA (ecstasy), ephedrine, amphetamine;
foods containing tyramine (for example, spicy and aged cheeses, kefir, long-shelf sausages, oysters, sauerkraut, mushrooms, red wine).
For a complete list of foods containing tyramine, see the link.
