Ayahuasca ALS Treatment Pilot Study

Start here


Ayahuasca ALS treatment trial in progress – Current number of participants: 28 (Sweden, United States, Belgium, Finland, UK, Turkey, Brazil, Italy, Canada, Russia, Singapore, Colombia, Argentina, India, Croatia, Australia)

Last Updated: January 2018

Based on response to the original article, a pilot study has been initiated in order to create incentive for neuromedicinal research into ayahuasca and its potential for ALS treatment.

Many concerned people have made contact, inquiring further studies on the subject to be conducted. General absence of awareness on the medicinal value of these plants and their possible role in future ALS treatment calls for action to promote research and awareness, a process in which you may affect development and outcome.

Are you considering using ayahuasca in attempt to treat any of these conditions?

  • ALS or other type of motor neuron disease
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Parkinson’s
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Huntington’s disease
  • Other neurological condition


Please consider providing your background and personal experience to this website, study and project for documentation purposes. Your contribution may help to advance research in natural neuromedicine, and making vital information known to the public. Results will be presented to neuromedicinal and ethnobotanical researchers worldwide.

There are currently 28 participants diagnosed with ALS, from sixteen different countries, in this study, evaluating ayahuasca treatment, eventual results to be published on this website and sent to neuromedicinal research groups. Long-term documentation continues in participants who respond positive to treatment.

Visit the latest results page for interviews:


This is a non-profit and independent project where participants volunteer in the opportunity to advance natural neuromedicinal treatment research, while recieving advice and updates based on previous and current participant experience.

Correspondense through e-mail initiates discussion on details and questions regarding study. Preferably, write “ALS study” in the topic field to ensure proper sorting, as an increasing number of e-mails requires answering on a regular basis. Please provide information about yourself, your diagnosis and current health condition (see below chart) to make personal assessment possible.




  • Name, age, gender and country
  • Date of diagnosis
  • Symptom history and development
  • Communication – is speech affected?
  • Is breathing or swallowing ability affected?
  • Mobility – Able to walk or in need of assistance?
  • Pharmaceutical medications – Any drugs currently being used? Can they be excluded or reduced without health concerns?
  • Diet (Documentation needed listing all food and drink items during 1-2 average days to determine neccessary therapy adjustments)

Note that this pilot study is a non-clinical trial, based on networking between adult individuals, each responsible for their own health. The author of this website and content will not be responsible for personal health consequences of individuals included in study.

To all people and participants involved in the Ayahuaca ALS Treatment project, providing documentation for this study: Thank you for doing the ALS community a great service by supporting research, exploring treatment options and sharing your experience. More information and updates will follow.

      How did the person from Italy get the medicine? My husband has Huntington’s disease. We live in Italy. We would cooperate in the study


      • hellspawndg says:

        All participants obtain it themselves from either it growing wild where they live, from alternative health stores in their area, or import from online vendors of their own preference. They then follow a certain protocol, which is also individually adapted through website correspondence, providing in turn documentation for the study. Please contact ayahuascatreatment@hotmail.com for further information.

    I’ve had ms for 12 years, drank ayahuasca 25 times in ceremony and 66oz worth over the course of 6 months…
    Are there any studies for me? I have a mri series since the first time I drank it in 2011. I am also on no medications for ms, and am doing somewhat ok. At least better than the day I first drank it 3 years ago.



    • hellspawndg says:

      Many people with MS seem to benefit to some degree from regular ayahuasca consumption, mostly in the symptom relief department. (I have only read about a few women claiming having been outright cured, but that is something I can not confirm). Most people with this type of experience say diet plays a substantial part – as it obviously does in healing/managing many diseases. Finding and combining the right symptom-reducing diet with maintenance ayahuasca medication is most likely key. May I ask if you follow any particular diet related to treating your MS? As I’m sure you know, there are several different dietary approaches out there, such as anti-inflammatory diets focusing on vegetables and healthy fats, while minimizing grains/dairy for instance. This is not me telling people what is best for them on an individual level, what to eat or not to eat, as it is up to each person to find out what works best for them. It needs to be brought up though, that in order to maximize the uptake of the ayahuasca alkaloids (or any nutrients in general for that matter), one needs to have a healthy and functioning digestive system. This will also reduce the chance of the body rejecting the medicine. Prematurely releasing the brew, wether through bowel movement or vomiting, means less of the alkaloids being kept in the body to do its work. Finding the proper medicinal dose amount and optimal frequency taking the ayahuasca medicine is something to consider, as is fine-tuning the proportions of the brew. Many people will tell you that a smaller amount used more often, seem to work better than a larger amount taken with longer periods of time in between. I do not know of any studies currently being made, regarding MS and ayahuasca specifically. If you send me an email (ayahuacatreatment@hotmail.com), I could send you a questionnaire form for you to fill in the details regarding your experience with the medicine, if you would like to share this information with others. Your review would surely be valuable to other people in your situation.

    I live in the USA where natural remedies are shut down by the government and Big Pharma. How could I obtain Ayahuasca without traveling abroad which is difficult for ALS patients. Thank you for any assistance.
