Wendy has experienced a plethora of health challenges since she was in school, including depression, fibromyalgia and bipolar, to name but a few. She followed conventional medicine for decades and discovered it wasn’t working for her. Her psychologist introduced to ayahuasca, a very powerful plant medicine and psychedelic and she reports on her remarkable results.   


2.0 – What is ayahuasca / DMT?

3.0 – Wendy - Medical issues since 3rd Grade. Now 55. Tried all Western approaches. Fibromyalgia.

4.0 – Acquired bipolar diagnosed in 2005.

5.0 – 2014: her psychologist had discovered ayahuasca.

6.0 – 3 ceremonies in Peru, small doses

7.0 – On returning to America, felt a veil had been lifted. Newfound desire to unravel what had happened in her body

8.0 – Costa Rica – 4 ceremonies back to back. “Mother ayahuasca sees what you need, and then it’s up to you to do your part..”  

9.0 – Was taken off anti-depressants. Attempted suicide 3 times whilst on them (they come with side effects of suicidal thoughts. During ayahuasca, she was not taking anti-depressants)

10.0 – Was able to come off the medications for Gerd (acid reflux) and is now no longer on any medications.

11.0 – Role of trauma and trapped emotions – which ayahuasca addresses

12.0 – Almost every illness / dis-ease can be traced back to a form of trauma / trapped emotion

13.0 – Ayahuasca can help to rewire / bypass trauma

14.0 – Discussion of presence with a clear connection to Source, can help to figure out the next step.

16.00 – Soul Retrieval – was not on her to-do list. Absolute bliss of what life can be like any time you want to tap into it. ❤️

17.00 – Soul contracts and Integration

18.00 – We always have the option to decide whether this is going to be for our highest good

19.00 – The magic of knowing we have the assistance and love from other beings   

20.00 – We go through life to remember who we are, and ayahuasca can help us with this.  

21.00 -  How the medicine shows us and guides us to figure out our path

22.00 – The notion that we are all one – “is absolute truth”

23.00 -  Tapping into the next thing that is required of me

24.00 – Becoming separated from love. No one was born evil.

25.00 – How being separated from our heart, creates dis-ease

26.00 – We act out of fear or we act out of love

27.00 – Bipolar and ‘secondary bipolar’ and seeing all kinds of therapists

28.00 – Felt like a guinea pig with anti-depressants and pharmaceuticals

29.00 – The drugs caused extreme anxiety and she was living alone. Attempted suicide whilst on anti-depressants.

31.00 – Difference between medicine and medication.

32.00 – The power in looking beyond Western medicine

33.00 – Blue Pill versus Red Pill – The Matrix. The body doesn’t go out of balance for no reason. A journey into Alice In Wonderland – fun.

34.00 – Why it’s good to explore and research psychedelics

35.00 – Wendy was told to write a book. Was presented with the opportunity to contribute Ignite Your Health & Wellness, a book I’m co-authoring with Wendy and 33 other authors.

36.00 – We have ways to heal. The body is designed to heal. We’re often standing in the way of our own healing.

37.00 – There is always a reason why the body isn’t healing (when someone is experiencing chronic symptoms). Lifting the veil. Mention of Kambo.
