Sananga is a traditional medicine practiced by the Yawanawá tribe, a group of indigenous people referred to as the guardians of the Amazon. For generations, they have used plant medicines from Amazonia, including Sananga. In addition to healing their physical ailments, Sananga also helps them improve their focus and clear distracting energies before hunting.
Sanangas come in different varieties. Developed by the Yawanawá tribe in Brazil, it helps clear the mind, open the third eye, and improve overall eye health.
It is derived from an undulate shrub found in South America called Tabernaemontana. Bark from the roots of the shrub is ground into a very fine powder, which is filtered through mesh several times using freshwater. The active ingredients have not all been scientifically proven, but one of them is ibogaine, a substance with neurological and psychological benefits. Several alkaloids in it may also have strong psychoactive effects.
The Medicinal Properties
In its purest form, Sananga possesses spiritual properties that allow us to clear our blocked energies, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. For instance, it can tell us what causes our ailments and guide us accordingly.
Before going on a hunt, the Yawanawá tribe and other Amazonian tribes have used the plant to sharpen their senses and increase their long-range vision.
People with severe eye diseases such as glaucoma and cataracts, as well as blindness, have reported success with Sananga.
A few of Sananga’s benefits include its antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anticancer properties:
T pachysiphon and T angulata possess antimicrobial properties effective against a wide variety of bacteria, according to studies from 1984 and 2002. The bacterial species targeted by the study are Staphylococcus aureus, skin infection and respiratory infection causer, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, pneumonia, sepsis, and eye infection caused in those with contact lenses.
T. stapfiana extracts were effective against various fungi species, including Candida albicans, a yeast that can cause thrush in the mouth and vaginal yeast infections. Typically, Candida infections are easy to treat, but the fungus can pose a risk to people whose immune systems have been compromised.
Several Tabernaemontana species possess strong antioxidant properties. Recent research suggests that nutritional antioxidants could also play a critical role in preventing age-related vision problems like cataracts and macular degeneration.
There have been promising results from studies dating back to 1977 that show Tabernaemontana species can help fight cancer. It has been shown that T elegans from Africa are particularly effective in killing cancer cells.
The T pandacaqui plant was shown to have fever-reducing and anti-inflammatory properties and to be effective in blocking pain signals in a 2003 study.
This powerful eye drop has more spiritual healing properties than physical ones, and it increases insight in the minds of those who use it. Its ability to increase visual perception, enhance colors, and remove unwanted energy makes it a common component of ayahuasca ceremonies.
There is an intense burning sensation associated with Sananga eye drops that typically lasts for a few minutes. Nevertheless, “pain is an important part of the healing process,” claim experienced practitioners. Sananga is said to provide relief from discomfort if you breathe deeply into it.
The best way to store Sananga is in the fridge, where it can be stored for up to six months. It is best not to use Sananga continuously; rather, use it for a week and then take a few days off before starting it again for another week.
The drops should be administered lying down in a comfortable setting with low lighting. Having a friend administer the drops is easiest, but it is also possible to self-administer them. You can experience quite a bit of burn when using Sananga drops for the first time, but it’s important to apply them to both eyes at the same time to ensure an even balance of energies.
You can lay back or sit in a meditative position after administering the drops so you can relax, focus on your breathing, and let the plant do its work. Your eyes will adjust to the burning after the first drop. The burning sensation will gradually reduce with time.
I recommend trying Sananga if you are interested in increasing your spiritual awareness and achieving higher levels of consciousness.
