Publisher's Summary

Western medicine has not been particularly successful at getting people relief from conditions like depression, chronic pain, migraine headaches, addiction, and PTSD. Dr. Tafur helps us to understand why.
I have watched people spend years in frustration and thousands of dollars consulting an army of specialists, without getting real relief from their problem. Because these and others are diseases deeply connected with the state of our emotional bodies. Too often, the Western medical approach fails to address the emotional dimension of illness. This is where traditional plant medicines, with their ability to alter consciousness and open channels of communication to our emotions, offer so much promise.
The stories shared here demonstrate the astonishing - mystical, colorful, metaphysical - effects of ayahuasca and traditional Amazonian plant medicine. Follow Dr. Tafur through the Amazon jungle as he develops a breakthrough understanding of how psychoactive plants interact with the complex network that connects our minds and hearts to our physical anatomy. What Dr. Tafur presents here is nothing short of a paradigm shift for modern medicine, where sacred plants, used properly in ceremony, take their place as important tools in the doctor’s medicine chest, offering the missing elements of emotional and spiritual healing that have eluded us for so long.

Great Book!

Dr. Joe Tafur does a great job blending the worlds of modern medicine with traditional plant medicine/shamanism.

This book takes complex topics and makes them easy to understand.

After reading this book I have a new found respect and a greater understanding of the fascinating world of plant medicines.

If you are curious about ayahuasca I highly recommend this book. Thank you Joe!
