Ibogaine Treatment Program Offers Deep Healing for PTSD

PTSD or post traumatic stress disorder is an anxiety disorder (mental health issue) that’s developed after experiencing a life-threatening event such as war, natural disaster, car accident, sexual assault or even sudden emotional loss.

What Are The Symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder?

People with PTSD tend to have upsetting memories or feel like they’re reliving the event (flashbacks). They also may avoid situations that remind them of the event, perhaps because there’s guilt or shame associated with it like in the case of sexual assault. Another symptom of post traumatic stress disorder is feeling keyed up, always jittery or on the lookout for danger which can lead to unhealthy habits such as using drugs, alcohol or even driving recklessly.

People with PTSD may also have other problems like feeling hopeless or even finding it hard to keep employment, thriving in relationships or having chronic depression. There are also some physical complaints common in people with post traumatic stress disorder, such as stomach pains, chronic back aches, headaches and muscle cramps. For every person experiencing post traumatic stress disorder, the experience is different. For children, it may even lead to running away from home or having trouble with schoolwork and friends.

Popular Treatment For Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Since PTSD is so prevalent today, there are many ways to relieve its symptoms so they don’t interfere with everyday activities such as work and relationships. Talk therapy, also called psychotherapy, is one way to go about treating PTSD which involves cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT has different types of therapy including cognitive processing therapy (CPT), prolonged exposure therapy (PE) and even eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EDMR) which involved sounds and hand movements. CPT allows patients to understand how the trauma changed their thoughts and feelings while PE allows them to talk about it repeatedly until memories are no longer upsetting.

trauma and depression
Medication is another way to go for those with post traumatic stress disorder. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (Paxil, Celexa, Prozac, and Lexapro) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors are typically used for depression and are thought to be effective to treat PTSD, however they come with many side effects. From dizziness to nausea to pain in joints and nervousness, these are some of the side effects SSRIs users may have. Benzodiazepines or benzos should be avoided in the case of PTSD because they don’t treat the anxiety disorder and are also addictive. At the Ibogaine Clinic, we see many people suffering from PTSD with benzos addiction, which is why we choose to administer a natural substance versus more chemicals.

Ibogaine Treatment For Depression and PTSD

So how ibogaine help? An ibogaine treatment program addresses multiple neurological sequences that are typically involved in addiction, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. The natural substance affects the brain’s regulatory systems including dopamine, serotonin and NMDA receptor. When patients undergo an ibogaine treatment program, the experience helps them face traumas, by bringing up memories and emotions into their consciousness so they can start to heal. For even better odds at a successful ibogaine treatment for drug addiction, after-care such as therapy or group counseling is recommended. In some circles, an ibogaine treatment program is referred to a “second chance at childhood.”
