On a note of warning, I wanted to leave a link to the following site which details the experiences of many people with mood disorders who have taken the psychedelic Ayahuasca. https://holistic-evolution.com/2014/12/02/ayahuasca/ I am myself diagnose Bipolar 1, and in my early years did a great deal of recreational drug experimentation including LSD and other psychedelics in an effort to either self-medicate or change my mental state. What I took away from the experience was that these and other drugs affected me in different ways than the norm. Ultimately this led to my commitment to remaining clean and sober (34 years now). That said, conventional drug therapy did change my life and allowed me the opportunity to learn the skills to cope with my illness. Consequently I am able to live today 80% without prescribed drugs. There are times that they are necessary, but they are one of many tools in my box. In my peer support groups I’ve noticed a great deal of interest in Ayahuasca and other psychedelics and I want to say the following: proceed with caution.
