The Ayahuasca or also known as natem or Yahe, is a magical healing potion prepared from the Banisteriopsis caapi and the mixture of other herbs found in the jungle.
This brew is used in sacred healing ceremonies called shamans or healers. In Ecuador, Ayahuasca is used by the Amazonian indigenous groups, among which the Shuar, Kichwa and Cofan redwoods.
