Prevention and treatment
Shipibo is one of the largest ethnic groups of Peruvian selva residing in the areas around Pucallpa and in the in the Ucayali River Basin. Tradition Shipibo medicine is based on in-depth knowledge of medicinal plants growing in abundance in the jungle, as well as ancient beliefs on dependence of human’s physical and mental health upon the spirit realm. Shaman can connect a person with plant spirits thereby ensuring the recovery.
Similar to European herbalism, Amazonian ancestral medicine uses extracts, herbal infusions or plants au naturel, however, in contrast to European culture, Amazonian shamans communicate with plants as with their partners and teachers through visions, dreams and altered state of consciousness. Unlike European medicine, written transfer of knowledge does not exist in Amazonia. In order to obtain sacral knowledge and become a healer, shamans’ apprentices undergo a long-term diets under supervision of experienced curanderos. Diet, understood as following certain lifestyle rules including certain food restrictions, is the way of treating patients with various somatic and mental disorders.

Those participating in shaman ceremonies often face the dark side of their nature, dual nature of master plants having both light and dark sides, consequences of psychological traumas as well as maleficent magic impacts. Shaman helps the patient to go through such complex and often painful experience, thus avoiding the negative impact of all these factors. Protection and support in the buildup of own energy resources is the shaman’s function allowing patient to avoid risks associated with inclusion in spiritual Amazonian practices. The reality of Amazonian world includes both light and dark shamans (brujos). Ceremonies with such shamans are dangerous and can have the most unpleasant consequences for those who carelessly approached them. We encourage you to give serious consideration to selection of reputable shaman.
