How does it work?

Ibogaine, known as the ‘addiction interrupter’ is seen by many as something close to a miracle when compared to other solutions for drug addiction.  Despite the fact that many have never heard of this plant based medicine if you do a search for Ibogaine on Pubmed, which contains the majority of the world’s scientific research, you will find over 400 results!

Ibogaine is a nootropic plant-based medicine found most abundantly in the second layer of the root bark of tabernanthe iboga, a perennial shrub native to West Africa. It is highly effective in helping the mind and body to make deep, lasting shifts in thinking and behavior; overcoming addiction and resetting the neural pathways.

A single Ibogaine treatment works in three ways: 

It reduces withdrawal symptoms to approximately 30-45 minutes (vs. days) – providing a relatively painless and fast detoxification.

It eliminates or significantly reduces cravings for several weeks to months after the treatment – giving an addict the opportunity to create a new lifestyle and habits conducive to maintaining a life of recovery.

The drug’s psychoactive nature can pull memories and emotions from the subconscious, helping many users understand and resolve the issues behind their addictive behavior.    


Addicts withdrawing from heroin will experience debilitating withdrawal symptoms.  Without medical intervention, acute heroin withdrawal starts about six to twelve hours after the last dose, peaking one to three days later, and can last one to three weeks. Withdrawal symptoms include (but are not limited to) hallucinations, sweats, anxiety, body aches, insomnia and mood swings.  However, residual symptoms, although less serious than the initial acute withdrawal stage, can continue for months and even years. It the intensity and length of these withdrawals that contribute to the high relapse rate (estimated at about 85%+) associated with heroin addiction.
