What is Ibogaine therapy like?
Ibogaine is typically administered in the morning while the patient is feeling withdrawal symptoms associated with drug addiction. Within the first hour of taking the herb, the patient feels his withdrawal symptoms fade. At The Holistic Sanctuary, we ensure that the patient is comfortable and still, usually lying down. It is noted that excessive movement during this process can cause undesirable sensations such as nausea and vomiting. We have a trained medical professional to monitor the process, check vital signs and provide reassurance where needed to ensure everything goes smoothly. This stage may also include hallucinations and vivid visions which help the patient get a better understanding and awareness of their inner selves.
Once the Ibogaine has peaked, the patient enters a kind of evaluative stage. Patients evaluate their visions and dreams from their prior stage and are able to get deep insights into what caused their addiction in the first place.
The third and final evaluative stage can last up to 72 hours. Our medical team is on hand to take patients through this stage as it can be marked by sleeplessness and extreme fatigue. Our insistence on having EMTs on call 24 hours a day is the reason why we have Never Had Ibogaine deaths at The Holistic Sanctuary.
