Is Ayahuasca Mother Nature’s “Red Pill”?

Published on February 25, 2016 by   ·   No Comments



My first Ayahuasca experience occurred in the spring of 2013 somewhere in the Brazilian Rainforest. Little did I know at that time how my life would be changed forever — as if I had taken the red pill option from the movie The Matrix, choosing to see rather than hide from reality. The veil had been lifted, and I started seeing the entire world in a new light. It has been almost 3 years since that first day (and many other Ayahuasca experiences in between), and I have finally got around to putting some thoughts out here into cyberspace.

Dennis McKenna once said to me that “Not only is DMT (the active ingredient in Ayahuasca) more interesting than television, it’s probably the most interesting thing in the entire world,” and I couldn’t agree more.

To go through life being aware of the possibility to have such an experience and never seizing it is, in my opinion, comparable to missing your highschool prom, never having a child, or never trying Italian food (with the gluten). It’s just an experience I think everyone should have at least once in their life, if not more.

Let’s start with a little background on Ayahuasca in general.

Note: Our podcast on this subject is available below!

What is Ayahuasca?

It’s a South American brew made up of two plants (yes, only two). These plants embark on a magical dance in a cauldron for over 12 hours to produce an effect on humans like nothing you could possibly imagine. One of the plants contain DMT(dimethyltryptamine), which is the psychoactive ingredient, and the other has MAOI (monoamine oxidase inhibitors). The MAOI allows the DMT to “diffuse unmetabolized past the membranes in the stomach and small intestine, and eventually cross the blood–brain barrier . . . to activate receptor sites in the brain.” If there was no MAOI in the brew, the body would be unable to absorb the DMT and nothing would happen.
