Environmental influences; old friends and hang-outs, relationships, certain jobs and debt. These are by far leading extrnal factors that can either make or break your success depending on how much you allow them to effect you.
What are the side effects?
Short term side effects are most intense in the first stage of the treatment and tend to become milder as the trip progresses. Symptoms may include: anxiety, ataxia, nausea (especially from movement) and cardiovascular effects (like palpitations). You may experience some of those symptoms or none of them. After the trip there can be a so called “grey day” when some people feel tired but sleepless, some are anxious or angry as suppressed emotions continue to rise to the surface.
How does ibogaine work?
Ibogaine has a complex mechanism of action (pharmacokinetics) in the brain that is not yet fully understood. What is known is that once consumed, ibogaine quickly stimulates the production of “glial cell derived neurotrophic factor” (GDNF) – part of the brain’s support system, which resets the reward circuitry situated in the Ventral Tegmental Area (VTA) of the brain. Put simply, addiction is a brain impairment characterized by a profound disruption in particular neurotransmitter circuits in the brain caused by the abused substance. Ibogaine resets these neurological pathways and refreshes the central nervous system
Is ibogaine safe?
Yes, when used appropriately with experienced & responsible providers. Our team will determine if any exclusionary criteria is met. Ibogaine can be dangerous if used alone, especially without comprehensive assessments. Here are just a few of the tools we use. Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale, Opiate Withdrawal Scale, Addictions Neuroclinical Assessment and other Cardiovascular Disease Risk Assessment tools.

We only treat up to 2 guests at the time (we never dose patients on the same day), each of them in separate individual treatment rooms with their own tailored program We always monitor and guide you throughout the treatment, to make sure you get all the care and attention you need. We do it in a gentle way so you are not disturbed in your process.

How should I prepare myself for treatment?
Physically you need to prepare your body with a light diet for two weeks prior to your treatment. The right mental attitude is very important too; you need to set your intensions for the treatment. We will help you and advise you on how to prepare yourself. There might be some more specific additional preparations, particularly for the patient who is on methadone. We will make sure that you are well prepared and aware each step in the process.
What I should bring with me?
You should bring your medical results. Also bring light, comfortable clothing. Bring a bathing suit so you can sit in hot tub, swim, sauna and steam room. Do not bring laptops, tablets or the like.
