drug is Ibogaine. Ibogaine is an alkaloid derived from the root of the
African plant tabernanthe iboga. It is a hallucinogenic substance used
in the initiation ceremonies of the Gabonese Bwiti society. It is illegal
in the USA and Belgium.
According to Eric Taub, there are 140 million drug addicts in the world.
Imagine what healing these people could do to the spirituality of earth!
Not only does Ibogaine help a person, who wants to give up drugs, to do so
without withdrawal symptoms, but it seems to act by giving the person an intensive
30 or so hours of 'therapy'. The person gets to identify and remove
the emotional reasons why they took to drugs in the first place. With
the reason for taking drugs gone, the desire to take drugs again also goes.
Some people who have taken Ibogaine reported an increased feeling of responsibility
for their life. One can't make generalizations about the drug, however,
as different people have different experiences. And it doesn't work
Here is an excerpt from an article by Simon Witter which appeared in the London
"The three main players in the world of human ibogaine treatment are
Howard Lotsof, Dr Deborah Mash and Eric Taub. Lotsof, the man responsible
for the new interest in ibogaine, occasionally treats people in a 7-day hospital
programme in Panama at a cost varying from $8,000- $20,000, while University
of Miami neuro-pathologist Dr Deborah Mash has established a competing 14-day
programme in St Kitts ($10,000). Devout ibogaine advocate Eric Taub used to
treat people on a boat in international waters. He now has clinics in Costa
Rica and Italy ($2,200), and is the source of most satisfied experience reports."
"Ken Alper MD, assistant professor of psychiatry and neurology at New
York University, has no problem with the spacier descriptions of the ibogaine
experience: "I crossed the threshold of belief," he says, "when
I saw a young man go down to Panama on 70mg of methadone a day, and come back
on nothing. And he was comfortable. Pharmacologically, I don't know any other
substance that can do that." … (end of London Times quotes)
There is an excellent interview of the afore-mentioned Eric Taub at http://www.ibeginagain.org/interview.htm
To quote from this interview:
"This is a psychoactive that will never hit the streets because it's
not a recreational experience. It's a profoundly arduous experience that takes
a lot of courage and a lot of work to wade through."
Interestingly, but not surprisingly, Taub (who operates clinics in Italy)
first decided to run his clinics in Mexico. But this is what he had
to say with that idea:
"Well, my next act was to see if I could find a port of entry in another
country since it's illegal in only two countries in the world, one being the
United States and the other Belgium. I went to Mexico with idea of interesting
some doctors who did become interested. They were going to be writing up a
proposal to be presented to their medical college who would in turn write
up a proposal to their FDA to see if I could then fly to Africa and bring
a batch of plants in to be used for a pilot study in Mexico.
that was proceeding pretty successfully and after about 4 or 5 weeks I just
happened to mention to these doctors that from what I understand ibogaine
has about a seventy percent success rate in alleviating substance abuse of
all kinds, even cross-addictions, from nicotine, to heroin, to alcohol, to
cocaine and so on.
When they found out that was the case they were immediately taken aback and
they said, "I'm sorry, we can't help you because we need to be able to
maintain a comfort zone around our family and friends, and if it had a much
lesser success rate then maybe we would be more comfortable about helping
you out, but we don't really feel that we're capable of jeopardizing ourselves
and our families and threatening certain individuals, particularly drug lords
that use our highways, to meander up to the United States." And they
suggested that I go to a more autonomous country, perhaps Costa Rica or another
country in Central America, that wouldn't be so close to the powers that be
in the United States. …
They were afraid of the threat that this may ensue from drug lords that might
feel threatened by having a clinic available in their area that could have
such a profound effect on alleviating drug abuse, especially if it were to
catch on and get the attention of the American government."
Good therapy is something all ibogaine patients stress as being a vital component
of treatment. "The long term successes of ibogaine have been compromised,"
according to Ken Alper, "by the lack of a systematic plan before and
after the experience. Ibogaine just buys you a window of time. It doesn't
substitute for therapy. It's like a near death experience - white light, a
torrent of information that allows you to review your life and unstring associations
from their obsessions. But how you interpret that is crucial."
Here is a warning from http://www.ibogaine.co.uk/index.htm:
"There is an inherent level of risk with ibogaine treatment. Several
people are known to have died during treatment, and there may in truth be
many more, given that ibogaine is frequently administered in surroundings
where people may be reluctant to contact the authorities in the event of something
going wrong. Despite much speculation, some of it from medical professionals,
there is simply nowhere near enough data to draw any realistic conclusions
as to why these deaths have occurred. Taking too much of the drug; using stepped
doses, (ie: half a gram followed by another later on); being excessively thin;
or suffering from liver or heart problems have all been suggested as dangers.
But the truth is - no-one really knows why people sometimes die when taking
ibogaine. No deaths have occurred in clinical settings, as far as the writer
Obviously, there needs to be a lot more study. This article is meant
to alert people to the existence of Ibogaine, not to provide all the information

EDITOR'S NOTE: I want to make it very clear that taking ANY drugs for ANY reason, especially for "instant enlightenment" is a very bad idea. However, IF someone is addicted to drugs, then maybe Ibogaine is the lesser of two evils. But it should NOT be taken by non drug-users out of curiosity!

miracle drug, and why governments are not clamouring to promote this drug,
