Storyline

The Jungle Prescription- was broadcast Nov 2011 by the CBC's prestigious science show The Nature of Things. It tells of ayahuasca, a visionary Amazonian brew of indigenous origin and its encounter with the West, as played out through the story of two doctors. The first, Dr. J. Mabit, runs a legendary detox centre deep in the Peruvian jungle, in partnership with indigenous healers. The second, Dr. Gabor Maté, is risking his reputation trying to establish a similar program in Canada. Through the intimate stories of these doctors and their patients, we see how an ancient medicine causes cathartic, life-changing insight, and we witness the commitment of people who have devoted their whole lives to applying this medicinal knowledge. Featuring: A very special group of plants, the patients of Dr. Gabor Maté, Dr. Jacques Mabit, Humberto Piaguaje, and the UMIYAC, Jordi Riba, Josep María Fábregas, the Vancouver and Barcelona skylines, and the Amazon Jungle - among others. Written by jeronimo M.M.
