Those weren’t your regular painkillers. Mayans often used hallucinogenic drugs for their religious rituals to induce hallucinations. However, these drugs weren’t just limited to religious rituals, Mayans also used them as painkillers.
Similar to today’s saunas, Mayans had their sweat baths which were considered essential elements of purification. They were made of stone walls and a ceiling with a small opening to allow steam to escape.
