Pablo Gallardo is a pioneer in Anadenanthera peregrina medicine treatment, also known as Yopo, He has successfully helped thousands of people recover from abusive conditions associated with addictions to stimulants or other psychological conditions.

The grandfather José Antonio Bolívar, the senior shaman of the Piaroa people of Venezuela, started Pablo Gallardo in 2011. Since then, 8 years ago, Pablo has been carrying Yopo medicine as his healing service. Yopo is a snuff derived from Anadenanthera peregrina (containing 5-Meo-DMT) and Banisteriopsis caapi (the root of ayahuasca that contains an MAO inhibitor). Together they create an experience of consciousness expansion. According to the Piaroa shaman, this medicine generates a great awareness of current and future environmental, social and personal circumstances.
