Guayusa tea for lucid dreaming.
The Guayusa is an Ecuadorian herb that contains caffeine. This herb is highly consumed for its stimulating properties. Unlike coffee (which introduces caffeine into the body at one time), the Guayusa releases caffeine progressively into the body.
This herb has been associated to dreams, since the natives of the Ecuadorian Amazon have carried out for hundreds of years the “Ceremony of Guayusa and the interpretation of dreams”.
In this ceremony, during the night, the elders of the tribe prepare the infusion of Guayusa, while the adults and other young people relate their dreams while enjoying the infusion. Before the sun rises, all dreamers will get their dream interpretation along with the advice and direction from the wise of the tribe.
In conclusion, the Guayusa tea does not have much to do with lucid dreams, since it is a natural stimulant and an herb with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. But due to this ecuadorian ceremony it has lead to some misunderstanding.

Lucid dreaming Narcolepsy.
Narcolepsy is a pathology in which people do not regulate sleep correctly. People with it experience frequent urges to sleep and in some cases fall asleep involuntarily, while talking or even while driving.
Occasionally, narcolepsy manifests with hallucinations while dreaming or waking, and even with brief episodes of total paralysis. Despite all this, scientists have discovered that these types of people have an advantage to achieve lucid dreams, since they are more creative.
A characteristic of narcoleptic people is that they present many symptoms associated with paradoxical sleep (it comes after deep sleep and lasts between 15 and 30 minutes). Furthermore, most of them are aware of dreaming when they dream: sometimes they can even influence the dream experience (lucid dreaming).
In view of all these data, the scientists set out and determined that people with narcolepsy have privileged access to this phase of sleep.
