Ibogaine is a hallucinogenic, indole alkaloid found in the bark and roots of the iboga shrub, Tabernanthe iboga, located throughout the tropical region of equatorial Africa. It is a sacred plant medicine to the native Bwiti people who have used it for hundreds of years. This ancient entheogen proves to be more effective than modern drugs in the treatment of chemical dependency, especially for heroin and opiate addiction. Ibogaine is called a miracle cure for recovery because of its three main functions: facilitating a visionary experience comparable to years of therapy, rapidly detoxifying the body of toxins, and repairing the circuitry of the brain damaged from substance abuse. There is no pharmaceutical drug capable of even one of those effects. And if that was not enough, when the psychedelic experience is finished, ibogaine converts to noribogaine after it is metabolized by the liver, where it is slowly released back into the bloodstream over the course of up to a few months.

Neurologically, noribogaine acts as an opioid antagonist effects at the mu receptors which will reduce the withdrawals of opioid abuse to roughly 15% and prevent cravings as long as it is present. Ibogaine and noribogaine both promote the repair and reproduction of dopamine neural pathways and serotonin levels.

Ibogaine is a catalyst to a profound transformation in the mind, body and spirit. Combined with an effective aftercare plan, ibogaine recovery demonstrates about a 85% chance of preventing relapse permanently.

Ibogaine has shown tremendous results for psycho-spiritual therapy and as an effective treatment for addictions to gambling or sex, as well as anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, PTSD, and more.

The Bwiti have used iboga for at least hundreds of years in shamanic healing rituals as it contains significant anecdotal qualities in the treatment of severe illnesses, infertility, physical ailments, psychological issues and other conditions. A Bwiti rite of passage, ingesting this sacrament for the first time marks the most important transformation of their lives as they become a banzie or member of the Bwiti Church. The religious ceremonies of the Bwiti are founded on the use of iboga and the altered state of consciousness that it brings because it connects each individual to ancestral wisdom through the ability to communicate with their own soul, animal, elemental or plant spirits as well as contacting deceased relatives. A Bwiti person is not considered pure unless they have taken this psychedelic voyage deep down to the core of their own existence.

Ibogaine is a beautiful gift from nature that makes the process of recovery an enlightening experience by inspiring the pursuit of dreams and passions rather than self-destructive behavior.
