Bortezomib and HDAC inhibitors induce virus replication and expression of the EBV PK . GCV is phosphorylated by the viral PK, resulting in inhibition of EBV replication; phosphorylated GCV induces cell-cycle arrest and apoptosis of virus-infected cells . Antiviral therapy with acyclovir inhibits the viral DNA polymerase but not the host-cell polymerase. Therefore, although acyclovir inhibits lytic virus replication, which occurs in epithelial cells, it has virtually no effect on the virus when lymphocytes divide and use the host-cell polymerase to replicate viral DNA. In theory, antiviral therapy might have an effect early in primary infection, when the virus replicates in cells and spreads to other cells. However, once EBV infection is established, acyclovir has no effect on virus-infected T cells in T-cell CAEBV.
Final Thoughts. The Tepi vs. Kuripe
The medicine can be very powerful, and it’s important to approach it with intention and respect. In the moments that followed my heart healing, a small ceremonial dance session unfolded. And under the guidance of rapé and Ayahuasca, I knew whatever this work was, I wanted in. Beyond my own transformation, I witnessed people forgive & fall in love with themselves, find their purpose, connect to their passion, and smile so big it filled a maloca. When we work with hapeh in the morning or early afternoon, it can shape the rest of our day if we so choose. So set an intention that lasts throughout the day and connect to it again hours after sitting with the medicine. You’d be surprised how this intention, mindful practice can positively influence the hours to follow when the experience has technically passed.
Soul retrieval is an ancient practice that shamans use in order to bring an individual who is suffering from soul loss back to wholeness. In order to understand how it works – and whether you need it – it’s necessary to first understand what triggers soul loss, what the symptoms are, and how to heal this energetic fragmentation of the Self. Soul loss occurs when a traumatic event causes the energy to fragment, whereby parts of the soul flee for safety and end up trapped in the locale of the trauma or lost, and adrift in the world.

The Origins of Ayahuasca
This experiment was officially abandoned in 1953, six years after it started. Structurally, it is similar to LSD and is often used as a benchmark hallucinogen when comparing psychedelics. Mescaline is a substituted phenethylamine, a molecule based on the basic phenethylamine structure. Along with MDMA, 2C-B, and others, this sets it apart from the tryptamine class of psychedelics, which includes psilocybin, LSD, and DMT.
Many individuals who have integrated microdosing mescaline into their weekly routine report higher levels of creativity, more energy, increased focus, and improved relational skills, as well as reduced anxiety, stress, and even depression. Some enthusiasts also report that microdosing mescaline has helped them heighten their spiritual awareness and enhance their senses. A 2005 study into the ceremonial use of peyote among Native American populations found there to be no detrimental long-term effects.
Similarly, arginine butyrate in combination with ganciclovir was administered to 15 patients with refractory EBV+ lymphoid malignancies of B-cell or NK/T-cell origin. Ganciclovir was administered twice daily at standard doses, and arginine butyrate was administered by continuous infusion in an intrapatient dose escalation, from 500 mg/kg per day to 2000 mg/kg per day, as tolerated, for a 21-day cycle. Ten of 15 patients showed significant antitumor responses, with 4 complete responders and 6 partial responder within 1 treatment cycle. Among the complete responders, 1 patient had extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, and 1 patient had peripheral T-cell lymphoma. Among the partial responders, 1 patient had extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, and 1 patient had a subcutaneous panniculitis-like T-cell lymphoma. The combination of arginine butyrate and ganciclovir was felt to be reasonably well tolerated, with biologic activity in vivo.27 However, at present, the drug is not available for clinical use.
Although part of an eons-old tradition of medicinal use, it appears to be a relatively new preparation of peyote cactus for sale in Mexico. Customs and Border Protection issued a reminder of its Schedule I status. Because it’s an endangered species, growing peyote at home—whether from cuttings or peyote cactus seeds—could help to save it from extinction.
