'People who are "in the know," know that on a biological level, iboagine plant medicine alleviates opiate addiction withdrawals and heroin withdrawals. Ibogaine helps with recovery from severe depression. It helps alcoholics become free from alcoholism. Ibogaine helps with Parkinsons disease and some cancer patients seek out this rare plant medicine from Africa.
When used by addicts who are seeking to move into recovery, Ibogaine plant medicine acts as an "Addiction Interrupter." From a therapeutic, psychological and neurological perspective, ibogaine's transformation can best be imagined through using a metaphor of two cities.
Imagine your brain looking like a map associated with the city you live in today. Now imagine your brain looking like a map with the same city you live in today but from decades ago. Notice the difference between the two? I imagine the current map from today has many more roads, more buildings, more communication abilities, more detours, more houses, more signs, more directions etc. in comparison to the map from decades ago. Some cities are designed well in terms of many variables while other cities are not. Whether or not a city is "of a good design" is really dependent upon the times and external variables that are responsible for determining whether or not a city is built well. A city from decades ago has a lot less "clutter" and a lot more room and potential for growth.
When someone is experiencing addiction, s/he has had years of "city building" within the brain, resulting in pathways and edifices (thinking patterns, belief systems, habits, emotional responses) that are not in the individual's best interest.
Ibogaine plant medicine acts as an "addiction interrupter" in that it resets the brain's neurochemistry and neurotransmitter routes from the mental map of the "current city", to a mental map of that same city, only from decades ago. Ibogaine creates a "tabula rasa," "blank slate,"opportunity for entirely new road maps to be built within the individual that are in line with and in tune with the best interest of the individual's future.
Ibogaine is not a magic bullet. I wish it were. It is really important to complement your ibogaine experience with a knowledgable plant medicine therapist to help guide your journey both before and after.
