End Your Methamphetamine Addiction With iBogaine Therapy

Updated: Nov 18, 2017

Methamphetamine is an illegal drug in the same class as cocaine and other powerful street drugs. It has many nicknames—meth, crank, chalk or speed. Methamphetamine was first synthesised from ephedrine in 1919. It was widely prescribed within the United States during the 1950s and 1960s as a treatment for obesity, depression and weight-loss aid. As the extremely addictive nature of crystal meth became apparent, governments worldwide began strictly regulating and controlling its production and distribution. Methamphetamine is currently a Schedule II drug within the United States, and around the rest of the world. 

Methamphetamine is a dangerous and potent chemical and, as with all drugs, is a poison that first acts as a stimulant but then begins to systematically destroy the body. Meth releases high levels of dopamine when ingested and then blocks the normal flow of dopamine in the absence of the drug.  These dopamine neurotransmitters involve the reward system that regulates pleasure, happiness, motivation, energy, and functional ability. Meth changes the way the brain functions; and the brain becomes dependent on the drug to survive. With prolonged meth abuse, it brings associated serious health conditions, including memory loss, aggression, psychotic behavior and potential heart and brain damage depleting the body’s resources, The physical effects start to deteriorate the body from the inside out, creating a devastating dependence that can only be relieved by taking more of the drug.

iBogaine Methamphetamine Detox Therapy: What To Expect

iBogaine Thailand believes at the heart of all addictions, it first began on a spiritual and emotional level. This is the also why many rehabilitation programs such as the twelve-step program have proven unsuccessful in the long term because traditional detox therapies only work to heal the physical level, where the current rate of success is about 1% - 7%. Too many people who have been through these expensive and ineffective programs end up with a sense of despair, and even a sense of personal failure.  Most rehabilitation centres and western society in general, are not aware that humans exist in 3 worlds: physical, mental & spiritual. While there are on-going support groups for addicts trying to kick their habit, symptoms of withdrawal can be so overwhelming that attempts to discontinue the drug often end in failure.

Physically Ibogaine works to relieve symptoms of withdrawal such as sweating, itchy skin, shakes, and twitches that users of meth often feel after the drug has worn off.  Patients that have used Ibogaine for the treating meth addiction have reported a complete absence of the physical symptoms once treatment is over. Ibogaine works by resetting the neurotransmitters in the brain. It also works as a psycho-spiritual tool that helps the patient look deeply into their past to find the root problem of their addiction. People with addictions usually are victims of deep emotional traumas and seek to find an escape of this through their drug of choice. Ibogaine takes the patient on a deep introspective psychological journey that allows them to forgive others that have hurt them as well as forgive themselves for things they’ve done that they regret and continue to carry with them. At iBogaine Thailand, we heal the spiritual, emotional and physical bodies of each guest so they can understand the root cause of their addiction. IBogaine therapy can provide individuals with critical insights into the origins of their addiction process or other unhealthy behavior patterns. This is the key to full recovery: digging up and reviewing the roots of addiction. These profound realizations contribute to full recovery and a deep new found appreciation for one’s life. Once the iBoga has broken your addiction, the next step is to rebuild the patient body and mind with nutritional medicine and supplements. It is this extra step that can increase the chances of a lifelong recovery from addiction. We also provide basic post-ibogaine counseling programs and advice to increase the chances of recovery. While the ibogaine approach for breaking addiction is not successful 100% all the time, estimates from the various clinics range between 70% to 80% in terms of the number of people who successfully use iboga to get off drugs permanently. The difference between success and failure seems to depend on whether the client is committed to the process of recovery and removing themselves from their previous environment.

What is iBogaine and how does it help to cure addiction?

ibogaine is a psychoactive alkaloid naturally occurring in the West-Central African shrub iboga. In recent decades, it has caught the attention of the West, particularly for its miraculous abilities to help people kick addictions to opiates, amphetamines and cocaine.

While it is a mild stimulant in small doses, in larger doses it induces a profound psychedelic state. Historically, it has been used in healing ceremonies and initiations by members of the Bwiti religion in various parts of West and Central Africa. People with problematic substance abuse issues have found that larger doses of ibogaine can significantly reduce withdrawal from opiates and amphetamines and temporarily eliminate substance-related cravings within one treatment.

If iBoga is virtually the only substance known to alleviate or eliminate withdrawal symptoms associated with opiate and amphetamines detox, why isn't it used as a drug treatment more commonly?

Here are some of the reasons why you may have never heard of iBoga:

  • the flood dose causes a 24 to 36 hour long "trip"  (expect lots of purging - sweating, vomiting and urinating too!)

  • it's African (Africa's reputation...)

  • it's natural and cannot be patented (no pharmaceutical company can make money from this)

  • treatment for addiction is a one time occasion, and no need for 'maintenance' (you don't have to keep taking iBoga regularly)

  • it's a scared plant (not sufficiently cultivated)
