Since the time our team has discovered the mind-altering effects of synthetic DMT in the 1950's, I am still amazed by the immense power of this drug to open - temporarily - the mind. Ayahuasca's potency is largely based on its content of natural DMT. The articles in this book will tell you how this power might be used to treat a variety of severe mental problems. Stephen Szára, MD, DSc., Retired Chief of Biomedical Research Branch of the US National Institute on Drug Abuse This book makes a significant contribution to growing evidence on the therapeutic benefits of ayahuasca. The chapters explore ayahuasca's potential for physical and mental disorders from a variety of perspectives and settings, underscoring the importance of a transdisciplinary approach to understanding this 'medicine' that has been employed for centuries by Amazonian cultures. Esther Jean Langdon, PhD, Professor of Anthropology, Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil This volume offers the most recent and broadest overview of the therapeutic potential of this remarkable plant medicine, which is only now being recognized and accepted into the clinician's armamentarium. Dennis McKenna, PhD, Assistant Professor, Center for Spirituality and Healing, University of Minnesota, USA This book fully traverses the space between shamanism and Western medicine, by giving attention to the special importance of setting, vindicating traditional ritual uses, and grounding the various aspects of healing on cultural studies, pharmacology, and neuroscience. This tour de force on the therapeutic use of ayahuasca is a must for those interested in the topic. Sidarta Ribeiro, PhD, Professor of Neuroscience, Director, Brain Institute, Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil
