Good Ibogaine Preparation
Electrolytes such as magnesium are important, so take supplements, coconut water and Epsom salt baths. This avoids many potential cardiac problems.
If needed Madera Sagrada can provide an extended stay both prior to an ibogaine experience and post drug detox. This is important for safe administration of ibogaine and having a successful detox. A minimum of a week is required to successfully detox with ibogaine with many people requiring longer to safely prepare themselves. And it takes at least a month for the new ´clean´ you start to arrive but really you will be experiencing changes over the next 3-6months. So please make sure you have an aftercare planned, staying on with us for a few weeks is an option.
Stimulants must be avoided, with things like cocaine and speed requiring a week to get out of the system, before we can safely administer ibogaine.
Long-acting opiates such as methadone, Subutex, buprenorphine, opium and codeine are not considered good mixes with ibogaine and we would require candidates to be on standard short-acting opiates such as morphine, heroin and oxys for at least three weeks prior to arrival (better 3-6months). Fentanyl and tramadol are best avoided in the weeks leading up to ibogaine detox too.
Anti-depressants that effect serotonin must also be avoided as the ibogaine will reset the whole serotonin system, so it’s best to make sure all the decks are cleared to allow it to do this important work.
If any of these are difficult for you to achieve, we offer a space where you can be safely held as you’re prepared for your ibogaine journey. We are able to maintain opiate addicts right up to their detoxes as you can take ibogaine 12 hours after the last short-acting opiate.
