Alcoholism is one of the most terrible addictions facing modern society. Alcoholism not only systematically takes apart the life of the alcoholic, but also the lives and wellbeing of all of the communities and individuals around them. Alcohol addiction is a chronic and progressive illness, that can strike anyone regardless of gender, ethnicity, or age.
There is no permanent cure for alcoholism. Treatments are available to support an alcoholic in combating and learning to control their desire for drink, but the ratio of successes to failures from these treatments is not a good one. Consequently, many people have begun to look at alternative treatments. Regardless of the treatment type, though, what is ultimately required is complete abstinence from drink.
The first and most important step in dealing with any addiction is admitting you have a problem, and alcoholism is no exception. Only once this has been done can the healing process begin. The most prominent warning signal that someone is suffering from alcoholism is an inability to stop drinking, regardless of the outcomes.
In these cases, the need for alcohol slowly but surely overtakes the importance of family, job, health, and all other facets of the sufferer’s life. Soon, all the alcoholic can focus on is drinking. They’re either imbibing alcohol, obtaining alcohol, or contemplating alcohol at all times. Because these consequences can come on so subtly, it can take a real moment of fear and despair to shock someone into realizing that they have a problem and seeking treatment, and eventually making the transition to complete sobriety.
Ibogaine as a Treatment for Alcoholism
Accepting the need to stop drinking altogether can be difficult. This is why Ibogaine is thought to be doubly effective against the scourge of alcoholism. The basic factors underlying alcoholism can be both physical and psychological. And many who have put themselves through treatment, even those treatments that address the mental causes of the addiction, often find themselves quickly relapsing.
Ibogaine, on the other hand, has demonstrated in a variety of studies that it has the ability to help eliminate cravings and withdrawal symptoms common to recovering alcoholics. A wide body of anecdotal evidence would also seem to indicate that Ibogaine can help to address the psychological factors underlying alcoholism, allowing for the better and more permanent acceptance of the need for sobriety.
Ibogaine treatment for alcoholism generally means a single Ibogaine administration. This step of your recovery, at least, can be simple and easy.
