"When diet is wrong medicine is of no use. When diet is correct medicine is of no need." - Ancient Ayurvedic Proverb

Amaru Spirit is a family owned natural medicine healing center located in the Amazon rainforest, half an hour outside of the city of Iquitos. In 2008 we began our mission with a single intention: to create a safe holistic community suitable for the restoration of mind, body and soul. This work is our passion and calling. 

Our purpose built facility was designed to ensure maximum comfort to our guest’s, who travel from all over the world specifically to address dis-connectednessdis-harmony and dis-ease


The modalities in use at Amaru Spirit include;

  •  Detoxification with body clay, cleansing and reinvigoration with plant and flower baths.
  •  Detoxification and cleansing of the energetic body with herbs and master plants.
  •  Cleanses and flushes for detoxification and rejuvenation with top-quality Western supplements.
  •  Balancing the physical body with a healthy and nutritionally focused diet consisting of organic produce and Superfoods.
  •  Clearing and healing of the soul with a variety of herbs and medicinal plants. 


At Amaru Spirit, we know that one size doesn’t fit all. This is the underlying principle in our approach to health, rejuvination and system balancing.
