When used in the proper setting, ibogaine completely disrupts the foundation of all types of addiction at their foundations. Chemical dependency and substance abuse disorder prove to be the most common reason for choosing ibogaine recovery therapy.

The visions induced by ibogaine also offer profound insight into experiences of the past, present or potential moments in the future. Ingesting iboga is a sacrament in the Bwiti religion, and the personal transformation that occurs from its use often becomes the most significant experience of one's life. An ibogaine session is a rite of passage that bestows an acceptance of trauma and forgiveness of past mistakes and then closure to any remaining negative feelings. This is a fundamental principle to maintaining balance and harmony between a person and the world around them. Ibogaine has often gives patients a feeling like they have been reborn. It establishes a new foundation for hope, inspiration and passion to be alive allowing them to thrive as they were intended to.

Unlike any prescription drug, it has the ability to reduce withdrawal symptoms down to 15% by rapidly detoxifying a person’s system of the residual buildup of toxins as a result of substance abuse. After the visionary effects subside, ibogaine is then metabolized by the liver where it is converted into noribogaine.

Noribogaine is arguably just as important as ibogaine in the process of addiction interruption as it is redistributed to the brain where it performs the action of an opioid antagonist by binding to mu receptors. Noribogaine is released over time for up to 2-3 months which provides a lasting sense of relief by preventing cravings or desires to use drugs.

Both ibogaine and noribogaine stimulate the production of dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitters which have been diminished due to the physical demand of opiates and other drugs being introduced to the system on a regular basis prior to treatment. It provides many more neurological functions than the standard opiate antagonists used to treat drug addiction. This means that ibogaine is capable of replacing standard anti-addiction medication like Suboxone and Vivitrol.

Noribogaine has a similar effect to drugs like naloxone and naltrexone which are opioid antagonists designed to block the effects of opiates and to prevent cravings. Ibogaine and its metabolite, noribogaine have the potential to provide alternative and natural relief to synthetic substances like Suboxone and Vivitrol, but it only takes one dose of ibogaine.
