Factors affecting the use of medicinal plants by migrants from rural areas of Brazilian Northeast after moving to a metropolitan region in Southeast of Brazil | Journal of Ethnobiology and Ethnomed... | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it
Ethnopharmacological studies about migrants reveal a dynamic process of knowledge and use of medicinal plants. In this study, we sought to elucidate quantitative and qualitatively the main factors influencing the use of medicinal plants by migrants from rural areas to an urban region in Brazil with traces of remnant natural vegetation. Seven Northeastern individuals who migrated to the Southeastern Region of Brazil (Bororé Peninsula, in the city of São Paulo) were selected to participate in semi-structured interviews regarding the use of medicinal plants throughout their lives, and indicated an inhabitant in their hometown that would be able to accompany the field collections in each area. Socioeconomic, educational, family structure, and use of Western medicine data were provided during interviews with the individuals from their hometowns. Plant samples cited by the interviewees were collected both at the current place of residence and in their hometowns. The participants cited 131 plants and 315 recipes, being the main indications related to the gastrointestinal system, respiratory problems, and pain and inflammatory processes. We observed that most plant uses were maintained after migration. Higher percentages of maintenances and incorporations in plant uses occurred to exotic species, while replacements happen mainly to native plants. The introduction of new species into the migrants’ therapeutics occurred mainly by observations of organoleptic similarities between the substituted plant and the incorporated species, conversations with neighbors, and contact with the television and print media. In addition, the public health system allowed the interviewees access to prophylactic drugs, leading to the discontinuation of certain recipes used in endemic diseases. Migrants were exposed to information about new plants and their uses, new diseases, and socioeconomic and cultural differences that impacted their use of medicinal plants. Although migration to a more developed city facilitated access to public health and education, on the other hand, it made access to fresh medicinal plants difficult, causing some medicinal plants to be replaced or ceased to be used.

O outro lado da ayahuasca : Revista Pesquisa Fapesp | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it
De tempos em tempos, surge uma onda de otimismo, quase sempre frustrada, acerca da possibilidade de uso de compostos psicodélicos para tratar problemas de saúde mental. Extraída de plantas ou sintetizada em laboratório, essas substâncias costumam alterar a percepção da realidade e as emoções e causar uma sensação de bem-estar, além de poderem provocar episódios de ansiedade com menor frequência. A disseminação de seu uso recreativo nos anos 1960 pelos movimentos de contracultura levou as autoridades sanitárias a proibir o acesso a esses compostos em muitos países – alguns permitem o uso restrito em pesquisas. A onda atual de entusiasmo…

"Sacerdote Católico explica ritual de hongos mágicos"

La postura de la Iglesia hacia los honguitos, aquí en la Sierra, ha ido tomando cada día más, una búsqueda de la verdad del Mazateco, la verdad de la fe del mazateco. Cómo es su forma de expresarse, de conocer, de adorar, de entender a Dios, para que esa forma también pueda enriquecer a la misma Iglesia, a todas las otras Iglesias. Que no sean cosas raras que hacen en la Sierra, sino que es parte de una espiritualidad que puede dar mucha riqueza a la Iglesia y al mundo.

Para dialogar con ellos sobre su sabiduría, sobre su fe, su moral, sus costumbres, y tratar de ir poniendo las bases de los que sería una verdadera Iglesia autóctona, la Iglesia Mazateca, sin estar separada de la Iglesia Católica, pero tampoco decir, bueno somos Iglesia Romana, no, tenemos que ser Iglesia Mazateca, algún día lo tenemos que lograr, para ser files a Cristo, tenemos que ser Iglesia Mazateca y en eso tiene que entrar todo lo que es el Mazateco.

miguelmiralles - ayahuasca | Ayahuasca News | Scoop.it
La Ayahuasca es una llave química que da permiso a nuestra mente, como pocas combinaciones de átomos son capaces, a tratar la información en paralelo, no en serie, haciéndonos conscientes de esos nexos causales entre las cosas que percibimos en la experiencia pisquedélica como flujos de energía. Nuestra cultura, nuestra mente, dará forma a lo sutil. La creencia es aquello que la mente decide tomar como Real, y es parte del proceso mental, tanto del místico como del ateo. Son tiempos de globalización cultural, y corremos el riesgo de confundir la forma con el contenido. El medio  con el fin. En el momento en que los nexos físicos, energéticos y emocionales del universo, se tornan brillantes como hilos luminosos de algodón que vinculan todo, se torna evidente lo real, lo trascendente y por lo tanto también, lo superfluo. Son momentos de lucidez espiritual extrema que la Humanidad ha usado durante siglos para comunicarse con sus Dioses los unos, sanar sus almas otros y otros, para ir al campo de batalla.
