Selva Madre offers master plant diets which are a minimum of 10 days. If you can, it’s good to do longer. There are currently three huts on a second property for dieters that offer more seclusion. Each diet has specific restrictions but all involve no salt, no sugar, no dairy, no caffeine, no alcohol, no sex. Dieters may partake of ayahausca ceremonies as they choose but they are not necessary.

Plants include: oje (Ficus insipida), pinon blanco (Jatropha curcas), ajo sacha (Mansoa alliacea), chiric sanango (Brunfelsia grandiflora), chuchuhuasi (Maytenus), renaquilla (Clusia rosea), bobinsana (Calliandra angustifolia), cordoncillo (Piper adundum).


Sometimes the shaman knows what plant you’ll diet through your intake before you come, but often they will need to meet with you before this decision is made.
