For the millions of people around the world that feel as though
they are hostage to their addictions
the Root of Hope offers an answer to the struggle.
Ibogaine comes from the species Apocynaceae plant family, found in West Africa and it is called Tabernanthe Iboga. Ibogaine is derived from the root bark of this plant where it has been used ceremonially and medicinally by the Bwiti religion and the Fang peoples of Gabon.
The anti-addictive properties of Ibogaine were discovered quite by accident by American scientific researcher, Howard Lotsof in the early 1960’s. Since then the research and applications of this ‘miracle’ plant have been well documented, and it has developed extensively with Ibogaine providers now existing all over the world.
Withdrawal, cravings, and degrees of detoxing are all major variables that are categorically impacted through Ibogaine treatment. When you are able to focus on the recovery process instead of struggling with the post acute withdrawal symptoms it provides individuals an opportunity to comprehensively begin the fundamental parts of their new healing journey.
There are countless other types of detoxification modalities out there for people to explore, but what makes Ibogaine vastly different is that it allows individuals the opportunity to explore the root causes of their traumas, and then unravel the layers of their addiction. Although this may sound like a disturbing endeavour, Ibogaine allows an individual to observe these wounds in a dissociative way eliminating feelings of shame and anguish often associated with these memories.
This is the ultimate form of psychotherapy because it allows you to disconnect the painful emotions of the past and begin to see them for what they are, fundamental events required for you to be you, and as you recognize that and accept it
you begin to grow in allowance for yourself and begin to love yourself again,
