Before your arrival at the Flower of Life Ayahuasca Healing Center, a more restricted diet must be followed for at least two weeks before the start of your program and for at least two weeks after your last ceremony. This diet follows the ancestral traditions of the Shipibo people and is used to prepare for healing with Ayahuasca, San Pedro, and other medicinal plants, as well as to show respect and commitment to the spirit of Ayahuasca before coming to the Amazon jungle in Peru.

The clearer a person’s mind is from negative energies, the more fully they can receive the healing benefits of Ayahuasca, the easier it will be for that person to purge any energy or blockage that no longer serves their soul’s purpose, and the more deeply they can integrate the healing work of the Master shamans and the plants into their being. Increasing the amount of time the diet is followed will only benefit a person’s experience with Ayahuasca (by following it for two weeks before and after completing your program at the Flower of Life Ayahuasca Healing Center).

This diet is absolutely mandatory and is for the benefit and general well-being; likewise, the results will be visible.

The most important aspects of this diet are:

  • No pork
  • No sexual activity, including masturbation, or anything that is sexually stimulating (pornography, etc,)
  • No alcohol
  • No street drugs, including marijuana

Any prescription medications must be cleared during the booking process.

The following foods should be discontinued two weeks prior to the start of your program:

  • Red meat
  • Strong spices or spicy foods (chili peppers, sriracha, cayenne, black pepper, garlic, etc.)
  • Frozen beverages, ice, ice creams (it is best to drink all beverages at room temperature and avoid anything that is much colder than this)
  • Processed foods (junk food, fast food)
  • Dairy products
  • Sugar (natural sugars are OK)
  • Salt (a few sprinkles of sea salt is OK every few days but we recommend limiting this as much as possible as salt has a very grounding effect on the body)
  • Deep fried foods / greasy foods
  • Caffeine
  • Fermented foods
  • Carbonated beverages (seltzer water is OK)
  • In addition, it is best to limit or completely discontinue your consumption of mindless TV watching and internet browsing. While we may not typically think of our interactions with these things as “consuming” them, in actuality we are taking their frequencies into our energetic body in a very significant way, one that greatly affects us more than we are generally aware of.

We would encourage you to follow a diet that consists mainly of the below:

  • Vegetables
  • Salads
  • Eggs
  • Fish and chicken
  • Rice, quinoa, oats, and other whole grains
  • Legumes (beans, lentils)
  • Mild herbs and spices (basil, cilantro, cumin)
  • Fruit, honey and other natural sugars – only in moderation
  • Healthy oils -only in moderation (extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil)
  • Ezekiel or spelt breads – only in moderation

We would also strongly encourage regular practices of yoga, meditation, breath work, time in nature, and/or introspection as a part of the preparatory and post diet.
