Ibogaine Treatment Has Become a Global Movement
The word is out – ibogaine treatment has become an international phenomenon. Why? Because this plant medicine works for treating drug and alcohol addiction and helping people achieve sobriety. It is also effective for those who experience mental health issues.
The problem is, ibogaine is illegal in many countries. This is a psychedelic drug that causes hallucinations. Many governments prohibit their citizens from experiencing this spiritual “trip” because they are uninformed about the many benefits of this medication.
Nevertheless; there is an entire culture of people around the world who are aware of the positive and healing effects of Ibogaine for addictions and psychological disorders. The 85 to 95 percent success rate of Ibogaine in helping patients break addictions has prompted a movement.
Those who want to find freedom do not let the prohibition of ibogaine stop them from getting the help they need. They travel somewhere that will allow them to get the treatment they so desperately need.
Ibogaine is Unregulated in Mexico and Available to Those Who Need Help
There are no restrictions of the use of Ibogaine here in Mexico. It is also unregulated in Canada, Australia, Israel, and New Zealand. In countries where this plant medicine is legal, there has been exponential growth in the number of people who use it to recover from addiction and other mental health issues.
People are willing to travel great distances for an ibogaine treatment to find recovery from drug and alcohol addiction or mental disorders like depression, anxiety, and PTSD. This is not surprising. Those who have battled with a substance use disorder or other mental health challenges want their life back. They want to reclaim their sanity and live life to its fullest potential. They are willing to do anything to make this happen.
Ibogaine treatment centers in Mexico and Canada have become especially popular for U.S. residents. New Roots is conveniently located near San Diego on the Mexican border. Most of the people who come to us for help are from the United States.
So, What’s With All The Hype About Ibogaine?
Ibogaine is best known in the West as a path to “addiction interruption.” The reason why it has gotten a global reputation as a solution to addiction is because sobriety can be achieved after a single dose. Those who emerge from a treatment say they feel clear and ready to continue on with recovery.
This plant medicine is especially effective for stopping the cycle of addiction to prescription opioids, heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines, nicotine, alcohol, and other addictive substances. It counteracts a person’s addiction through a powerful disruption to the brain’s biochemistry.
The first few weeks of recovery are usually very difficult for those seeking sobriety because they experience painful symptoms of drug or alcohol withdrawal. Many relapse because they simply cannot bear the pain of detox.
Ibogaine prevents withdrawal symptoms while efficiently flushing toxins out of the system. It also prevents cravings from reemerging. Essentially, it hits a reset button in the brain and fundamentally rearranges the way neurotransmitters operate to restore them to a place of wellness and normalcy.
What Does The Research Say About Ibogaine Treatment?
According to studies, Ibogaine bonds with opioid receptors, which are the same receptors that addictive substances bond with. One treatment can restore the addicted brain to its pre-addicted state.
Researchers have made some interesting findings about this psychedelic. Studies have shown that one ibogaine treatment can reduce withdrawal symptoms and eliminate cravings for three to six months. While studies are still preliminary, the results to date offer tremendous hope.
For example, patients who are on a methadone maintenance program have been able to abruptly stop methadone intake after only a single dose of Ibogaine. How? Because they experienced only minor withdrawal symptoms and almost no cravings for three to six months. (This does not mean that cravings always come back. But, sometimes they do and an additional treatment may be necessary.)
Ibogaine Helps With Relapse Prevention
Most people relapse within the first 90 days of sobriety because they do not know how to manage cravings. Ibogaine offers freedom from cravings so that patients can pursue help with therapy, 12-Step programs, and other sources of support. Today more and more people are recognizing this psychedelic plant medicine can serve as an excellent addition to psychotherapy, meditation and contemplation.
Typically, most people who take an ibogaine treatment are able to build a solid foundation in recovery during early sobriety. Because they don’t have to face the pain of withdrawal and suffer through cravings, this makes them want to continue to enjoy a sober lifestyle.
For these reasons, and many others, ibogaine has gained a worldwide reputation as a cure for addiction. It is an international phenomenon.
