Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating condition that impacts 44.7 million people worldwide. The disorder is often difficult to live with and equally difficult to treat. Anxiety medications are the first round of defense in Western Culture for those suffering from PTSD, but ibogaine treatment is gaining popularity as a means of defense and safe, natural recovery.
Symptoms of PTSD
PTSD is an extreme form of anxiety that is often the result of trauma that causes serious distress. The trauma may be the result of witnessing a crime, being abused, or experiencing some other situation that induced extreme fear and a feeling of helplessness. PTSD is characterized by the following symptoms:
- Memories that interrupt sleep or appear during the day as a flashback. The memory will often make the individual feel as if he or she is right back in the traumatic situation that originally caused him or her pain or suffering.
- Avoiding situations, places or activities that will bring back memories of the traumatic event.
- Irrational or angry outbursts.
- Mood swings such as feelings of hopelessness, numbness or suicidal thoughts.
- Lack of desire to remain involved or active in relationships with family or friends.
- Feeling as if the traumatic event is recurring.
Persistent thoughts, feelings and emotions associated with PTSD can make everyday life feel completely debilitating. There are external reminders in places, smells, activities, or people that may be related to the trauma experienced. This makes avoiding an anxiety outbreak difficult or nearly impossible for the individual suffering from PTSD.
Who Experiences PTSD?
PTSD develops in the mind of an individual that has experienced a shocking event such as witnessing the death of a loved one, experiencing a near death event, or being responsible for the death of someone. Although death is not always a factor in the diagnosis of PTSD, it is a common factor for many.
PTSD is often the result for someone who:
- Is abused as a child and feels helpless.
- Suffers a sexual assault such as rape or molestation.
- Is in a car accident that is deadly or nearly deadly.
- Is a veteran of active duty war.
- Witnesses the death of someone, especially a loved one.
- Is responsible for the death of someone—either by accident or on purpose.
It is estimated that about 9% of those living in the US will experience PTSD at some point in their lifetime. More common in women than men, PTSD symptoms are often treated with antidepressants or anxiety medications, both of which have a strong ability to cause long-term addiction.
But what if treatment did not have to include an addictive drug?
Ibogaine for PTSD
Ibogaine treatment can influence the mood in a way that helps to release negative thoughts and the trauma associated with PTSD. Clients that receive ibogaine therapy report that they no longer suffer from the strong emotions that were responsible for their trauma prior to the treatment. Many even find that they feel better after treatment than they did PRIOR to the PTSD.
Ibogaine targets the brain and reacts with the MU receptors. It balances out the chemicals responsible for emotions such as happiness, causing a sense of calmness and a later understanding of WHY the brain was so traumatized by the negative experience. Ibogaine for PTSD works as follows:
- The patient is assessed and our medical team along with David Dardashti works up a plan of treatment. This includes the distinction of a proper dose of ibogaine for the unique needs of the client. Every client receives a different dose.
- The client is brought into a treatment room where an IV of nutrients is inserted. Then an ibogaine dose is administered.
- The client is provided headphones to listen to a unique set of music that was created specifically for the ibogaine treatment.
- After about 6-8 hours, treatment is over and the client returns to his or her room to relax.
But what actually happens to the body and the brain during ibogaine treatment for PTSD is as follows:
- The neurons responsible for sending signals throughout the body from the brain and back to the brain are healed.
- Deep spiritual and personal insight into the subconscious is experienced.
- The body is immediately relaxed.
- The mind is able to see the negative patterns or trauma and let go of it. The subconscious finally allows the conscious mind to have proper perception and to control the thoughts.
Self-awareness allows the individual that was suffering from PTSD to move forward with his or her life. The negative patterns and the trauma that was causing deeply rooted depression are no longer in control after the ibogaine treatment takes place.
After Ibogaine Treatment for PTSD
While ibogaine dose help to heal the mind, there is still work to be done. The client is encouraged to actively participate in a support group following his or her ibogaine treatment to help continue the healing process. PTSD is the result of deep rooted traumatic life experiences—and while an alkaloid or substance such as ibogaine can equate to years of therapy for some, additional support is usually helpful.
There are many ways a person can get additional support following ibogaine treatment. We recommend you find a PTSD support group, a grief support group, or a similar group of fellowship with others that have witnessed or experienced similar situations. You could also continue counseling or therapy if you are interested in doing so—it certainly won’t harm the recovery process.
