Ayavida Package 1 (La Dieta)


Welcome to our first Ayavida package. We’ve combined over 30 years of collective experience of Ayurveda and Amazonian plant medicines into this package. This specific package is for those who wish to participate in a Traditional plant Dieta and also incorporate lifestyle and dietary changes according to the perspective of Ayurvedic medicine.

These two medicines and holistic therapeutic technologies are sincerely a match made in heaven. Here with us you’re held, this whole package is tailored not only to your intent with regards to Ayahuasca but also according to your body type or Dosha according to Ayurveda. With this guidance and knowledge of yourself gained through Ceremony, Ayurvedic diagnosis and the wisdom of the plants you’ll come to know, understand and accept your strengths, abilities, flaws and many of the things that might be inhibiting your ability to live a fulfilling and happy life.

Many things elude us from being able to evolve into the human we wish to be but with Ayahuasca and Ayurveda we hope these ‘knots’ can become undone while rekindling your love for life and drive to connect to the divinity within you.

Within this package you’ll undergo an Ayurvedic diagnosis and treatment with Dr Marjorie, a pre evaluation with Dan and a 10 day Ayahuasca plant Dieta in the Amazon with your post Dieta at a beautiful jungle hotel in the high jungles of Peru with the chef tailoring to not just the post Dieta restrictions but also your Ayurvedic constitution.

I met Medicina Del Sol through Reddit.  I was looking for a place to do a plant diet and attend Ayahuasca ceremonies and was getting a lot of mixed messages and warnings concerning some of them.  As it was my first time working with the medicine and I was a female solo traveler I wanted to make sure that I felt comfortable and safe in the place I was undertaking the work.

I had an initial call with Dan who was really helpful and reassuring and told me a lot about Ayahuasca and shared his experience of him with it.  He spent as much time needed to reassure me and look at the different options I had to explore and work with the medicine, bear in mind that I was 5 days away from flying to Peru and still nowhere to go!

Dan dropped everything and did all he could to find me a safe place to go and that’s how I ended up going to Cielo at La Casa de La Madre;  here I was flying to Pucallpa to work with the plants.  All throughout Dan sent me tips, guides, and recommendations on a pre-diet to prepare my body for the diet.  I felt like I was in good hands and was confident and excited for the journey.

My stay at Cielo was memorable, I had the chance to be on my own for the first 4 days and had 2 ceremonies just by myself and the curanderos which was such a gift.  Elma, the healer, decided which plant I was due to diet.  My 10 days were a blessing and I’ll be forever grateful for having had the opportunity to go on that journey.  The 10 days diet was mostly in isolation in a small bungalow in the jungle with a ceremony every other day, I was able to connect with myself, with the plants I was dieting and more importantly reflect and work on the things I was trying to avoid and busy myself in order not to look at it.  I feel like I came as a person and left as a different one.  Dan was regularly checking with Cielo to make sure everything was going well.

After my 10 days diet, I flew to Tarapoto to stay at Villa Lu, a lush and beautiful hotel in the middle of the jungle with a swimming pool and greenery all around.  Medicina Del Sol had told Villa Lu I was coming, and I had the chance to have post-diet meals that had been prepared just for me which allowed my body to slowly come back from the diet, they food was amazing, and people were very friendly.  This was such a great step in my journey, looking back I wouldn’t have been able to just simply fly straight back to London as it would have been too intense going from one extreme to another.  This week gave me the opportunity to “come back to reality”, reflect and integrate some of my learnings and get ready for the comeback.  There I had an Ayurvedic consultation with Dr Marjorie which was fantastic, we had a look at my current body state and what changes I should put in place when I come back to London as well as my treatment, Marjorie took the time to explain everything to me and was really welcoming.  I’m so glad I got a chance to work with her and will be looking forward to regular consultations with her as well.

I flew back to Lima before my flight back to London and MDS had sent me all my herbs and medicines required for my treatment to my hotel room, which was so lovely, felt like a small gift before my departure.  Dan checked on me all throughout and I felt so supported and loved and couldn’t be more grateful for their warm welcome and help throughout the process.

I would recommend anyone who is willing to go on that journey for the first time to opt for the Ayavida package.  It will feel like a warm, loving, and safe blanket wrapped around you to accompany you on that journey and you don’t need to worry about anything, and just focus on you and your inner journey.  Ayahuasca is a big journey and there are many places that it can be overwhelming, and you also want to make the most of your trip but with Dan’s experience and Marjorie’s expertise you get a combination of both worlds and the support necessary to integrate some of your learnings and it doesn’t feel like you are just going back to the wild on your own.  Dan and Marjorie have such beautiful energy and they’ve put so much love in putting that package together that will be customized and adapted for your needs that I would send any friend or anyone willing to work with the plants to them.  The combination with Ayurveda is also perfect as it will help your body adjust, adapt, and give you the necessary tools to continue to take care of it and respect it when you are back from working with the plants.

I cannot thank MDS enough for all their sincere and genuine help and willingness to help others work with plants in a safe, loving space and to Cielo for being there during those 10 days.  Although coming back to London was tough, I have all these loving memories in my head that are helping me every day and my plants to connect with and I’ll be looking for the next time I get to go to Peru and continue the work that is a lifelong journey.
