Most people are skeptical when I first talk to them.
And that’s understandable.
“A drug I have barely heard anything about called Ibogaine is going to treat my addiction?”
But that’s just the beginning.
If Ibogaine really works then why aren’t thousands of scientists and top notch medical doctors talking about it?
The answer is simple.
It isn’t about science.
It isn’t about medicine.
And it isn’t about addiction recovery.
The answer is: People are like water.
And, like water, people take the easiest path.
We developed one type of drug treatment method decades ago, stamped it for approval, and developed a serious case of tunnel vision.
And now in the USA every treatment facility and medical doctor operates off this one treatment idea.
But this one way drug treatment only works for some people.
And chances are if you are looking into Ibogaine treatment then the standard, cold-turkey, 30-90 days locked up in rehab hasn’t worked for you.
But that’s ok. It really isn’t your fault.
Andrew’s Drug Addiction
Andrew and his parents tried for years to get him off heroin.
They spent over 50,000 dollars on 5 different rehab facilities.
They tried the standard path over and over again.
The results were always the same.
They were desperate to find something that worked.
Like most of our patients, Andrew’s mom stumbled onto information about Ibogaine treatment.
They were very skeptical.
But Andrew and his family were desperate to find any kind of drug treatment that would actually work.
After a few days, they made their decision to put their last hope into Ibogaine treatment.
Andrew flew down. We took him across the border to our clinic. After the first few days of checkups and testing he was ready to try the Ibogaine treatment.
On day 3 he took the Ibogaine, and went through the experience.
After about 24 hours he was still a little disoriented. He couldn’t stop wondering if the withdrawals and cravings would come back.
Everyone has this same question.
Then, day 4. No withdrawal.
Day 5. No withdrawal.
By day 6 Andrew still had no withdrawals and no cravings.
On the last day an ecstatic Andrew, still without cravings, boarded the plane back to his home in Northern California.
But that wasn’t the best part for me.
The best part for me was 2 weeks later. His mother called me. She was crying.
“I can’t tell you how happy we are to have the regular Andrew back home.”
Andrew was different. The Ibogaine detox had changed him.
They took the risk and it paid off.
Safe. Comfortable. Effective. 1-800-644-8482
Andrew was back to being Andrew again.
I still talk to Andrew and his parents regularly and he is doing great. He is back in college and he is almost finished with his degree. He hasn’t touched heroin, pills, or even alcohol since he finished his Ibogaine rehabilitation.
Physical and Psychological Healing
What is it about Ibogaine that works for treating these drastic addictions. Especially heroin and opiate addictions?
The truth is, we don’t really know. Ibogaine research is still pretty new.
But scientists are starting to get a pretty good idea.
They say it works on two levels: physical and psychological.
On a physical level, Ibogaine literally changes the health of the brain.
It resets the brain function back to its normalized state.
Addicts find themselves feeling like they did before they had the addiction.
With traditional rehab and quitting cold turkey this level of healing in the brain can take years.
But Ibogaine therapies specifically targets and resets the addicted part of the brain.
Ibogaine also works on a psychological level. This means it targets past traumas and negative experiences.
Many addicts talk about visions of their past during treatment.
Being shown things they have done to themselves and their families.
But the Ibogaine makes them more accepting. It doesn’t just show the addict these things out of fear.
It shows them these things so they can put their past behind them.
This is a huge step towards full recovery. These traumatic experiences often keep many people addicted.
Even if they don’t know it.
With these two levels of healing, the addicts leaves the Ibogaine treatment healed, with a completely fresh perspective on their life.
They find a reason to change and a reason to move forward.
Is the Psychedelic Experience Dangerous?
The one piece many people are worried about is the psychedelic experience itself.
Am I going to freak out?
Am I going to jump out a window?
The reality is Ibogaine isn’t like other psychedelics. Many psychedelics are an active experience.
Ibogaine is more of a passive experience.
It’s referred to as a “dreamlike state.”
Addicts lay down in their bed and remain there for the entire Ibogaine recovery experience.
The closest thing to compare it to is dreaming.
And during this experience our medical team is constantly checking blood pressure, heart rate, and other vital signs.
All patients are closely monitored.
The reality is, when someone quits cold turkey they go through extremely heavy and unbearable hallucinations during withdrawal.
These withdrawals usually lead the addict back to using drugs. They just want the pain to end.
Ibogaine offers a way to get through withdrawal detox without an extremely painful experience.
This is why Ibogaine offers hope. There really is nothing like it.
There is Hope
Ibogaine isn’t a walk in the park.
But it works. I have been there.
And for many addicts it is the last hope they have.
Being an addict is dangerous.
But it can be treated.
Ibogaine is not like any other treatment. But you have to find out for yourself.
