Nowadays Ibogaine therapy is considered as an alternative method of drug detoxification and drug addiction treatment, mostly it is comes to opioid (Heroin) addiction.
Ibogaine is a herbal alkaloid extracted from the root of an African shrub. Ibogaine is a psychoactive substance with hallucinogenic properties. Its remarkable anti-addiction properties were discovered accidentally by heroin addict H. Lotsof in 1962, when he took Ibogaine with recreational purpose and the following morning he discovered that he wasn’t craving for drugs. Since then it has been known as the substance which helped many drug addicts to kick their drug addiction.
There are two types of Ibogaine treatment. The first one is focused on beating drug addiction, most commonly heroin dependence, through drug detoxification and alleviating craving for drugs. The second type of treatment is used for facilitating psychotherapy sessions, which usually need sub-clinical doses of Ibogaine.
Numerous studies and scientific research on Ibogaine convincingly show that Ibogaine has an ability to relieve withdrawal symptoms significantly almost in all cases of drug addiction and what is even more surprising is that this effect is very appreciable in cases of hard core heroin addiction.
Anti-addictive and anti-withdrawal properties of Ibogaine can be explained by the effects of its transitional metabolite called Noribogaine. Noribogaine increases level of dopamine and serotonin in a body whiich give the patient the feeling of well-being and blocks brain receptors responsible for drug craving. Ibogaine is not a substitute for drugs and is not addictive. Ibogaine disrupts drug addiction chemically.
