Unlike the process of working with ayahuasca in ceremonies with curanderos or with other people in a group, the dieta is done in isolation, with no contact with others and minimal contact with the tabaquero. It is a time to be alone, to be with oneself, to restrict oneself from the comforts and temptations of day-to-day life, to go into the world inside, and to experience the plant directly. Jason and Valko will always be available if need be, to talk, to interpret, and to teach and share, and exemplify an understanding that the greatest teacher is the wisdom within, enlightened by the process with the plant.
La dieta mediterránea es la dieta tradicional que cuenta con un mayor respaldo científico y todos conocemos en qué consiste: un consumo alto de frutas, verduras, pescado, cereales integrales, legumbres y aceite de oliva, y bajo en carne roja, azúcares y grasas saturadas. Pero, además, un componente importante es la práctica de ejercicio. Dado que es la dieta que se utilizaba en nuestro país hasta hace no mucho, es muy fácil de seguir. Pero hay que tener en cuenta que lo que hoy podemos entender como “dieta mediterránea” no siempre corresponde a lo que los científicos entienden como tal.
Para almorzar, mejor tomar poca carne y preferentemente de pollo o pavo, jamón, pescado y alternar días con ensaladas de primer plato y legumbres de segundo plato y de postre siempre fruta fresca. Lo de hacer cinco comidas al día, está por ver porque no pasa nada por no merendar. Y por la noche para cenar, lo ideal es tomar una ensalada, una tortilla, una empanada de pescado, unos calamares a la romana, unas croquetas... siempre un plato y una pieza de fruta pero siempre frugal. Lo principal es estar delgado. Si mides 1,60 tu peso ideal es 56. Puedes cambiar, la composición de tu dieta porque nunca es tarde a la hora de adelgazar y los beneficios son muy grandes.
People are suffering, the world is suffering, and relief is being asked for, cried for, prayed for. Another human story exists to replace the self-destructive mythic addictions of modernity. A story of human lifeways repatterned onto principles of organismic growth and evolution, healthy ecological relations, and recognition of the worlds of spirit and vitality. This story comes from an in-place wisdom native to this earth, and it is breaking like a wave upon this planet. The knowledge that runs this story is now growing like mycelium through the cultural deadwood of the colonizers. It is coming out of the forests and deserts and mountains, out of the many earth-based cultures whose wisdoms are spreading through the air (and electronic) currents of world. It is working through people in the West who are returning home to the community of life, who are engaged in healing themselves and others of the chronic homesickness that manifests in so many of the ills of modernity. This is what the world-wide renaissance in the way of the plants is about. This is why herbalist Rosemary Gladstar calls plants “the umbilical cords to the planet.”
Verdad: Las dietas de moda no son la mejor manera de perder peso permanentemente. Este tipo de dieta generalmente promete que usted perderá peso rápidamente. Le hacen reducir estrictamente lo que come o evitar ciertos tipos de alimentos. Es posible que al principio sí pierda peso, pero es difícil continuar este tipo de dieta. La mayoría de las personas pronto se cansan de seguirlas y vuelven a subir el peso que habían perdido.

Tobacco is a very complimentary medicine to ayahuasca. For many people who work with both, ayahuasca is seen as a guide to open their vision, while tobacco is where they find access to their power. Both ayahuasca and tobacco are revered as master teacher plants. They are held in special regard as extremely powerful with a power to both heal and teach on a profound level. Tobacco significantly supports centering, grounding, and straightening one’s mind and life, in general. Tobacco is commonly used as a base plant which provides direction and amplification in conjunction with other plants.
The best dieta for the day of the ceremony begins with a simple vegetarian breakfast, followed by a light vegetarian lunch. For some individual cases, a vegan diet or even fasting may be recommended. Avoid spicy foods like chili, as well as anything with caffeine (coffee, tea, soda). You should also avoid eggs, dairy, and heavy sweets. Drink water or herbal tea. We recommend that you do not eat after 3:00pm, or at least five hours prior to the session. You can drink, but only water or herbal tea. Some fruits are okay to have at the end of the ceremony if there is no nausea or dizziness. For persons having an unstable, problematic digestion, it is recommended that you exclude a few foods from your diet at least a week before the Aya ceremony. This includes avoiding all dairy, such as cheeses and products made from cream; you can, however, have yogurt and kefir). You should not eat white bread, products that are high in gluten or butter, and sugary carbohydrates like cakes and cookies. If you are not sure what to eat or about your digestion, the universal recommendation for diet prior to the Aya ceremony is to eat raw fruits and/or vegetables and drink juices and water. This gives the body a very light feeling and can help to decrease the heaviness of purging during the ceremony.

La doctora ha aconsejado reorganizar los horarios, poco apoco, para volver a las costumbres. "Tu organismo sigue un ritmo biológico determinado por tus hábitos, razón por la cual es importante que comamos siempre a las mismas horas y evitar pasar más de 3 ó 4 horas sin ingerir nada. Retomar la pauta nutricional de tres comidas principales y dos tentempiés a media mañana y a media tarde", ha precisado.
Comer demasiado poco (anorexia) o comer mucho solo para vomitarlo (bulimia) son dos trastornos de la conducta alimentaria. A algunas personas les cuesta mucho controlar lo que comen. Pueden comer toneladas de comida y sentir que no pueden parar de comer (trastorno alimentario compulsivo o trastorno por atracón). Los trastornos de la conducta alimentaria son nocivos para la salud de la persona. Las personas que padecen este tipo de trastornos necesitan tratamiento médico (y psicológico) inmediato.
This particular process of dieting comes from a long lineage of tobacco healing traditions throughout the Amazon that has spanned perhaps thousands of years. This way of dieting plants is a relatively short but powerful process, with each dieta lasting for only 10 days. Many of our western staff are actively engaged in carrying out a course of these dietas, and it is with great pleasure that we now are able to hold a space on our grounds and share these gifts with guests of the Temple. Dieteros (people on dieta) will receive all of the care, structure, support, and experience that the Temple has offered to guests for the last ten years.

The profound understanding obtained through the study of the human experience and how the nervous system functions (specifically how it stores and changes what is learned) is an essential part of Valko´s work. His sincere commitment to the work of healing and awakening and his unique sense of humor lend a beautifully human and fun flavor to his work.
La sibutramina actúa disminuyendo el hambre y haciendo con que la sensación de saciedad llegue más rápido al cerebro, ayudando a controlar la cantidad de comida ingerida. De esta forma, este medicamento puede ser usado como primer tratamiento en personas con obesidad. Cabe acotar que en algunos países de América Latina su uso ha sido restringido, debido a sus efectos secundarios.
