Many people outside of the cultural tradition of curanderismo have trouble understanding the concept of consequences, feeling that plant spirits are like enlightened beings, and therefore would never punish someone, but I think in the context of a contractual agreement, consequences might make more sense. Even with the perception that plant spirits are loving and benevolent, and understanding of consequences is quite logical. Parents teach the concept of consequences to their children to prepare them to be adults. They teach their children about consequences because they love their children, and want to instill in them the ability to make appropriate decisions. I think plant spirits are doing the same thing. Of course, everyone is free to think whatever they like. What I have presented is merely my interpretation of what I have been taught by my teachers and by what I have experienced myself by doing dietas. It took a decade of study for me to reach this understanding, and I am sure I will continue to develop my perspective and ideas in the future.
Regular el azúcar en la sangre es una de las mejores maneras de perder peso. Si estás excesivamente baja o excesivamente alta de azúcar en la sangre, es más probable que te console comer y vas almacenar el azúcar que consumes en forma de grasa. En primer lugar, rocía tus comidas con 1-2 cucharadas de jugo de limón, o la mezcla de jugo de limón y la ralladura del limón en tu platillo. Como el vinagre, el limón ayuda a descomponer el azúcar gradualmente en el torrente sanguíneo.
In simple terms, a dieta is a contract made between a curandero, or student of curanderismo, and a particular plant spirit. The terms of the contract are decided and agreed upon prior to the dieta taking place, and often times the motivation to do a dieta comes at the request or suggestion of the plant spirit, but can also be decided by the person. For instance, in an ayahuasca ceremony or perhaps a dream, a plant spirit may present itself to someone and suggest that he/she do a dieta with it. Another common practice is that a student or curandero feels a connection to a particular plant and decides to do a dieta with it, or a student’s teacher suggests that the student do a dieta.
