A single administration of Ibogaine has several useful functions in drug treatment.
First it causes a huge reduction in withdrawal symptoms, which can be detoxified relatively painless.
Secondly, withdrawal symptoms are greatly reduced. The strong desire disappears and gives way to a clear consciousness.
Finally, the psychoactive dreams state helps the patients understand underlying issues in their life that may have caused them to start using drugs in order to solve those problems and therefore change their behavior and thus completely eliminate addiction.
Please note: Despite the excellent potential which Ibogaine offers to treat addiction, it should be clear that Ibogaine will not help everyone. It is important that there is dedicated motivation and the ability to change the environment. Ibogaine may well break an addiction, but it is not a panacea. One should also take into account that an Ibogaine treatment is very intense way to break an addiction and should not be taken lightly nor for granted. Before you decide to have a Ibogaine treatment, ones health should be examined by a registered doctor. Heart, liver problems or low blood pressure is a contraindication.
You may apply for an iboga or Ibogaine treatment if you and only you think that you will benefit from having the treatment. This is for your own risk, and given the intensity of the ibogaine treatment which is a big responsibility that you deliberately take upon yourself.
Outside Africa, iboga extracts and purified alkaloids are being used for an Ibogaine treatment.
Treatment will last several days, depending whether you’re addicted or not, and what you are addicted to. After the iboga is psychologically prepared, it is usually after three days, one has time to recover. During the dream state you are not able to sleep and one will lose their appetite, so you will could feel weaken the first days after treatment.
After first taking a full dose of the Iboga the drug tolerance will be gone, nevertheless taking drugs can have serious consequences.
The hallucinogenic effect is very intense. The locomotion is reduced. Iboga visions relate to all five senses. We see flashes and increased sensory perceptions. The visions of “time travel” give insight into personal events of the past and his encounters with archetypal structures deep into the consciousness. This trip is very long time, and it can take up to 40 hours.
If you decide to undergo a treatment then we strongly advise you to have your health checked in advance Heart and liver problems or low blood pressure is a contraindication. We also emphasize on the importance that a sober person must be with you, one who can watch over you during the treatment. Obviously this person must have experience and knowledge about iboga, preferably a recognized practitioner. Your health comes first!
