The Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca provides greatest ‘Healing’ for one’s mind, body, and soul, providing ‘Medicine’ through food. Similarly throughout ages Mayans and Aztecs have used hot raw cacao to open heart chakras, in japan monks have used matcha before meditating, and in India, the Bhagavad Gita proposed spiritual prayers to be recited before having meal. The Hippocratian oath also offers to food be your medicine.
Vedic Wisdom says bodies are made of five elements, earth, water, fire, air, and ether, and when there is an imbalance, there is what is called disease. The Amazonian shamans also consider disease to be imbalance at a spiritual level. As soon as balance is retained, health is back.
Food is considered the main ingredient as medicine in all ancient spiritual cultures. Cultures have celebrated healing properties of cinnamon, ginger and gotu kola in diet.
In Atharvaveda, the philosophy of Ayurveda has been introduced, estimated to be at least 3,000 years old. Still Indian people, and people over the world, follow and benefit from the wisdom of Ayurveda by following the instructions from cooking, like tempering or chonk that comes loaded with Phyto-nutrient rich spices, or garnishing with vitamin-C soaked lemon juice.
In Atlanta, Georgia, herbalist Shamika Miller is says “Plant magic is the original way of healing in every culture. Nature provides the truest form of healing and it can be used in many ways to assist communities around the world,” says Miller, who often draws culinary inspiration from her African-American heritage. “My grandmother introduced me to ‘sweet oil’, where garlic from the garden was infused with cold-pressed olive oil. Once infused, she would pour it into my ear,” says Miller, who has now adapted this family recipe for a global audience.
Although some Healing herbs, in modern times, have had some controversy. The Indian Holy Medicine “Soma”, was always looked at with caution, considered as ‘Drink’ of the Gods. The Holy Medicine of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca, although fully legal to consume in the South Americas, is controlled in U.S. and other countries, where only few religious organisations are exempted from the control and can offer the Holy Medicine of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca as Sacrament. Although seen with caution, the Holy Medicine of the Holy and Divine Mother Ayahuasca is known to ‘Heal’ and improve the Mind, Body and Spirit of the those who consume in a Sacred Ceremony.
Food or Drink has been considered to provide the ‘Healing’ of the Mind, Body and Soul, for ages, and should continue to do so, rather than relying solely on lab-manufactured medicines.
