Nature’s Hospital is a new establishment in Peru where people can can get treated for serious ailments with plant medicines, drink ayahuasca for general wellness or even sign up for an 18 month rain forest ”residency” in dieting, diagnosing, healing and leading ceremonies. The founder, a Buddhist, describes the endeavor in a promotional article for Shambala Times:
Opening Nature’s Hospital has been a tremendous adventure in the Amazon Jungle of Peru. What began with a simple solitary meditation retreat led to the most significant project I have done in my life, not for my personal excitement as much as the benefit that this stands to bring others. Nature’s Hospital is focused on treating people with chronic and life-threatening illness using only the gifts of nature – the plants of the jungle. What’s significant about this? The treatments are gentle, and the techniques come from a long healing tradition within the jungle’s population.
