There are several components, or steps, to the Ibogaine treatment program. Our Ibogaine pre-care is designed to help you maximize the benefits of your Ibogaine experience. It mentally and physically prepares you for Ibogaine and the journey you’re about to take. Our pre-treatment will assist with setting realistic, personalized goals based on your expectations and desired outcome of your treatment. Pre-care helps our clients to develop a manageable plan of action following their Ibogaine treatment.
It is also a very important time for clients to begin to detoxify their system. This can mean various things but mainly we aim to flush any unwanted substances and drug residuals out of the body. This process is gentle and may involve IV therapy, diet modifications and nutrient supplements. The client can relax in the tranquility of their bungalow, or take a dip in the pool while they acclimate to their treatment program. Our medical staff and counselors will meet with the client periodically to monitor vitals and progress. The underlying cause of addiction and trauma can be treated by the plant medicine but detoxifying the body is a vital first step. Cleansing the body allows it to receive the medicine more effectively and provides a much more fulfilling experience when undergoing the Ibogaine treatment.
Another important aspect of precare is the adjustment into a more peaceful mindset. The Ibogaine works with your mind and body to produce a profound healing experience but the clearer your mind is, the better the experience. We often carry more burdens mentally than we choose to acknowledge. This time for introspection and stress reduction is key to being mentally prepared for this new path and deeper self-awakening. Processing and clearing out negativity and stress is one of the most satisfying parts of pre-treatment.
