Chiric Sanango Diet
Chiric Sanango (Brunfelsia grandiflora) also known as Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow grows naturally in the upper Amazon basin, including the RHC property. The Chiric Sanango plant boasts white and purple flowers. This diet is the stronger of the two Sanango diets and should be approached with total commitment and discipline. Shamans and doctors of the Amazon prescribe this root for colds and arthritis. The word “Chiric” in Quechua means ‘itchy’ or ‘tickling’, which refers to the sensation of the brew being swallowed. Its purpose is to enable the dieter to open up on all levels necessary to experience deep integrative healing on all levels. It has been said to help heal a broken heart or cool down an enraged or jealous heart. It has also been said to open up the sacral chakra and cultivate a higher sense of Self or ‘self-esteem.’ It aids in emotional healing and provides a greater sense of mental clarity. The effects that the dieter may experience most intensely may include dizziness, disorientation, extreme chills, weakness or fatigue, and releasing of oppressed emotions. These are a direct result of the medicine cleansing the body of toxins and negative energies. The strongest physical discomfort typically passes by the 3rd day of the diet.
The dieter must stay in isolation in order to focus on introspection and understanding of the emotions being released. Journaling is encouraged during this isolation diet. Frequent bathing is recommended throughout the duration of the diet to cleanse and cool the body of the toxins being released. When it is time to break the diet, the Shaman will administer a salt mouthwash and the dieter may re-enter the group and society as a whole. Please refer to the Important Disclaimer at the bottom of page regarding breaking this diet.
