Palos Diets (Master Plants)

Diets are periods of isolation during which the person must comply with certain restrictions at different levels, with the aim of apprenticeship as well as the restoration of health. It is the "Mother Plant" who appears in dreams to the person, testing and teaching him/her. Each plant has a different quality or features. Some produce visions, while others can only be understood intuitively or in dreams. During the isolation the consumption of salt, sweet, fat, is suppressed and only this food is ingested: farina (dried cassava), boiled rice, boiled plantains, oat and water. During the diet sexual energy cannot be used, including masturbation. While on this diet you cannot be exposed to: sun, rain, strong odours (perfumes, kerosene, etc..), nor talk or see people who are not on the diet, with the exception of the herbalist who manages the plant. Personal hygiene can only be done with water at dawn and dusk, you cannot use any toiletries (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, etc..).
