Important Facts about Ibogaine Detox
Ibogaine is a psychoactive stimulant that is produced by the African Iboga shrub. Experts believe that it possesses amazing anti-addictive features that allow it to reduce chemical dependency while helping to eliminate many withdrawal symptoms.
These addiction-reducing properties were first discovered in the early 1960s by American scientific researcher Howard Lotsof. As a 19-year-old heroin addict, Lotsof tried ibogaine and found that his heroin cravings were significantly reduced in just 30 hours – with no withdrawal symptoms!
This discovery led him to create the Ibogaine Detox program, which he himself continued to follow to rid his body of opiate addiction. Interestingly, the program has actually been even more successful in curing alcohol addiction, and taking ibogaine regularly has been shown to reduce food cravings and boost people’s energy levels and mental awareness. In fact, scientists think that the Iboga shrub may offer additional health benefits that we have yet to discover.
Two types of Ibogaine detox treatments exist:
- For Alcohol and Heroin Addicts – Patients are administered 15-25 mg (kg .5-8) doses to lessen the need for the addictive substance and reduce withdrawal symptoms.
- For Spiritual/Psychotherapy Treatment – Patients are given 8-12 mg doses to strengthen their ability to accept their addiction problem and deal with it spiritually.
To purify their bodies of harmful toxins, alcoholics and opiate addicts in other countries are often administered an ibogaine detox – but not in the U.S. Unfortunately, the FDA has not yet approved these treatments in the U.S. because researchers have discovered that the Iboga plant may possess a few psychoactive side-effects, which would allow it to be potentially abused by addicts. This lack of approval has prevented scientists from conducting important research on the Iboga shrub and kept addicts from utilizing a treatment that has shown much success around the world.
Sadly, the harm may go even deeper than that because by restricting ibogaine detox, the FDA may be discouraging many addicts from seeking help at all. Barbara E. Judd, a prominent researcher of the Ibogaine plant, has said that the biggest reason many addicts won’t join a detox program is their fear of having to live with withdrawal symptoms. Ibogaine detox, with its documented ability to lessen or even remove these symptoms, goes a long way towards alleviating this problem – just not in the U.S.
Thankfully, the world at large is not so restrictive, which is why more and more people are seeking out ibogaine detox treatments at international clinics.
