Embracing the Ayahuasca Diet

The ayahuasca diet is a set of dietary guidelines traditionally followed by indigenous communities in the Amazon to optimize the healing potential of the sacred plant medicine. These guidelines emphasize clean, whole foods, and limit the intake of salt, sugar, fats, and spices. At La Luna del Amazonas, we uphold these principles, offering meals that support detoxification, enhance mental clarity, and facilitate a deeper connection with the medicine.
