These days, the popularity of Ayahuasca has become more and more increasing as it can be proven with the number of ayahuasca retreat centers like the Your Highest Truth, for example, have been increasing. The popularity might be due to the fact that more people now know this potion as a kind of traditional medicines or drugs that work similarly with LSD or Lysergic acid diethylamide as both of them can give hallucinogen effects to those who consume them.
However, interestingly from the hallucination, the effects produced by ayahuasca do not work like LSD. The obvious difference lies in the fact that people with ayahuasca as a whole realize that in the state of experiencing the hallucinogen effects that they have hallucinations, whilst with LSD, there will be no consciousness of the people consuming about them having hallucinations. Instead of hearing a lot of voices, they only hear a voice of anger and will be more accepting of their circumstances and situation at that time. Compared to the sense of flying, they will feel more of their past experiences and emotions so that they will be able to find peace in the soul. So what exactly happens with our brains when consuming ayahuasca that produces these strange and unique effects?
There are areas in our brain, which when actively exaggerated will connect to depression, anxiety, and social phobia. The same effects as those resulting from meditation will arise. There is ample evidence that also suggests that DMT is also capable of maintaining long-term memory and growing new brain cells, and has the possibility to kill cancer in the future.
That does not mean that ayahuasca can cure cancer. However, scientists say there is a possibility that the drug could be used to fight cancer. But like other addictive drugs, ayahuasca has a bad side, including the effects of vomiting.
