Ibogaine Just Gave Me My Life Back!!

    I would like to thank Aumua for telling me about Ibogaine, something I had never heard of before. I went to a clinic, one that knows how to treat people on large doses of Subutex/Suboxone. Yes, you can be treated without tapering down and switching to a short acting opiate!!! They treated me last Tuesday while I was on 24mg daily and it worked like a charm. Neither myself or any of the other patients at this clinic had the brutal experience that most people claim to have gone through. No hours of vomiting or any other painful problems. Sure, I felt as if the crap was knocked out of me afterwards and slept the rest of the day. But by the second day I was up and about, feeling fantastic!! I don't want to name the clinic because if I do, this entire post will sound like a contrived commercial. This sounds to good to be true but it most definitely IS true!!

    They gave me a few capsules to swallow, had me lie down and then they put a blindfold over my eyes. They also put headphones on my ears and played this strange African music. I began having mild visions but only when my eyes were closed. About four hours, I was no longer addicted to buprenorphine!! Yes, it was that simple. What a crime that it's a felony to use it in the USA. This amazing gift from god has the potential to help so many people and not just addicts too. I want to mention that I was on about 10 other meds for various ailments. Since my treatment I have only needed one of them, Prevacid for acid reflux.

    I was so skeptical beforehand and really scared due to my age (65) and high dosage of sub. But thank god, Ibogaine has given me my life back. No withdrawal or cravings of any kind and have not had ANY opiate since my treatment. Thanks to everyone on this forum over the years for such invaluable information. You people know 100 times more about opiates than 99% of all doctors.

    Btw, if you want to read about my entire story of getting hooked on Buprenorphine, see the topic, "An Aweful Sub Situation" in this forum. It's incredible and unbelievable.

    Wow! Just Wow! I love reading these Ibogaine stories. I just dont understand why it remains illegal in this country as the epidemic gets worse and worse!

    Thanks for taking the time to post your experience. Did you have any visions? I especially like to hear about those since they say it's like 20 years of therapy wrapped up into a few hours.
    I would also like to request that you post a link to your story if you have it. Our search engine is a joke so it will be hard to find without a link. Thanks.

    The only place my story currently appears is in this forum under, "An Awful Sub Situation." Just how would I post a link to it? I became good friends with another patient at the treatment facility who was there to detox off an 8mg daily Suboxone habit. Once we have all our strength back, (as we're both still not quite functioning on full thrusters,) we plan to launch a major Ibogane awareness website where both our stories will appear plus a lot more. For the most part Ibogane still appears to be one of mother nature's best kept little secrets. I just found out about it here, in this forum, just a few months ago, even with all my research into detoxing from opiates. Now that I'm aware first hand of Ibogane's astounding healing properties, I want to devote the rest of my life spreading the word so that Ibogane becomes common knowledge to almost everyone. As for any visions during my "trip," I did have them but they seemed very random in nature and not at all spiritual. But they say it's a different experience for everyone and many people don't have spiritual visions. I guess it largely depends on just how spiritual a person is in the first place.

    Shortly after treatment, my raw emotions returned and I'm constantly bursting into tears of joy from feeling human again!! Not am I only off Suboxone, but I've gone off all my other meds, some of which, I was on for the sole purpose of controlling Suboxone's side effects. For years I've been unable to pee without standing there for several minutes and waiting as it eventually came dribbling out. So the urologist prescribed Flomax which barely even helped. But now, I'm back to being 100% normal without the Flomax! Also, before I detoxed, I was warned by many knowledgeable people that I might have to join AA or at the very least go back into therapy to avoid replacing one addiction with another. Now that I'm clean, I see the danger. All these small aches and pains that were numbed for many years by the Suboxone have now surfaced and are very noticeable. It definitely will take some work to stay clean but I know I can do it with the proper guidance.

    Lol..I took a shot and Googled the title of your old post and it was the first one that popped up so here it is...


    About the visions, I dont think they are mainly spiritual are they? My thought was that they were reflections of your current emotional state (as well as spiritual).
    I have heard about many of the visual experiences and all very different from each other. Too bad we lost most of our very early posts from late 1990s to the early 2000s. There were some great very detailed posts from people who did the Ibo treatment. And is why I am so happy to see people post about theirs.

    It's such a seriously helpful tool yet it's not mainstream knowledge. Maybe now that the opiate epidemic is finally being talked about more often, the focus will eventually change to the few lousy options we have available to us here in the US. So glad to hear you have plans to join in on that focus!
