Influence of Ayahuasca on Thinking and Other Brain Functions

Ayahuasca opens up new areas

For lovers of evidence-based medicine, meta-analyses, neural connections, and so on…

With kind regards and strict adherence to the rules of primary attention.

Through mistakes, humans learn, but who doesn’t want everything to work immediately?!

Our brain has precisely the tools for us to live easily and find joy in every activity.

For this purpose, we have two types of thinking: creative thinking and logical thinking.

At first glance, they may seem contradictory, but they are a continuation and complement to each other.

The ability to employ them in the right sequence and the right extent determines that unimaginable lightness of being.

In a small series of articles, we will report on what some Ayahuasca studies say about this topic.

The effects of Ayahuasca are divided by researchers into several phases, depending on time:

  • The acute phase, approximately 4 hours after ingestion, is the most noticeable phase for an individual, manifesting through bodily reactions, changes in perception, etc.
  • The sub-acute phase encompasses everything that occurs after the acute phase, on the following day and approximately 7-14 days thereafter.
  • The long-term phase “kicks in” after the sub-acute phase and is considered the time after 3 weeks and beyond.

Each phase has its own processes, which are perceived differently by individuals. The acute phase is the most intense in this regard.

However, the subsequent time periods are no less eventful and transformative.

That’s why Ayahuasca retreat companions always say that the effects of Ayahuasca do not end with the cessation of the “symptoms” of the acute phase. They last much longer and continue to influence even after the physical components of the plant have left the body.

And here, without disregarding any magic or metaphysics, one can scientifically and confidently state (for those who require this precise understanding): Ayahuasca affects you much longer than you think or even feel.

For each phase, specific investigations are conducted to determine the predominant brain processes and reactions.

We will discuss these in the upcoming articles.

    The work was amazing. Ayahuasca helped pull out the most stuck traumas that I didn’t even know about, remove the blocks that prevented me from walking through life with confidence and calm, being truly alive, being myself. I could not achieve such a result by working with a psychologist (I am not at all belittling their work now); in a retreat, the work occurs with great intensity and efficiency.
