The History begins in South America
The explorers discover the Indigenious Medicine by the way to make a perilous journey into the Amazon. Most of them almost died of dysentery and malaria. In 1851, Richard Spruce was exploring the Rio Negro of the Brazilian Amazon, he observed the use of yage.
Use of Ayahuasca for visionary experiences appears to be primeval, to judge from the richness of associated mythology. Pre-Columbia rock drawings are similar to contemporary ayahuasquero´s paintings, which are said to represent yage visions.
Hochstein and Paradies determined in 1957 that results from ingestion of yage came mainly from interaction of three molecules : harmaline, harmine and d-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroharmine. Heinz Kusel observed that ´´ Indians and low-class mestizos alike visit the Ayahuasquero…when they are ailing, or think they need a general check-up, or want to make an important decision, or simply because they feel like it´´.
