What if I am afraid of having a bad trip?
Feeling a little of anxiety is absolutely normal since ibogaine treatment may be a completely new experience for you and you know the experience is going to be a powerful one. We will help you to prepare for the treatment from the physical, mental and emotional perspective, so you know what is the right approach to your experience. We will also explain you how to deal with the emotions during and after the treatment so they don’t become overwhelming. We always monitor you throughout the treatment so you can get all the support and help if needed.
Do you have trained medical staff??
Our clinic is in a natural setting but we do consult every application with a medical doctor in advance. We always follow ibogaine treatment safety protocols before, during and after the treatment.
How should I prepare myself for treatment?
There are various preparations required and they need to be taken seriously. Medical tests are a must and we will NOT provide a treatment without assessing the results. This includes an ECG measurement of your heart and a blood test (a complete blood count for general health and to identify any possible liver abnormalities).
Physically you need to prepare your body with a light diet for two weeks prior to your treatment. The right mental attitude is very important too; you need to set your intensions for the treatment. We will help you and advise you on how to prepare yourself. There might be some more specific additional preparations particularly for the addiction treatment. We will make sure you’ll be well prepared and aware of things otherwise we will NOT perform the treatment until you are ready for it.
What I should bring with me?
You should bring your medical results. Also bring light, comfortable clothing. You should NOT under any circumstances bring any any opiates or drugs unless in special cases prescribed by your medical doctor.
