Iboga is the most powerful healing substance known to humankind and will provide you with the healing you desire. This plant medicine has a rich history of use originating in Africa by the Pygmies and then later with the Bwiti . Iboga is a sacred African plant that has profund effect's treating various conditons that pose obstacles to health and well-being.
A typical treatment begins with relaxation/grounding techniques and setting an intention for your healing process. During the treatment you are cared for by a nurturing, professional licensed staff consisting of a Naturopathic medical doctor and Chinese doctor plus other professionals to help guide you through the transitions keeping you comfortable and safe .
Effects of the Iboga treatment are very different for every individual as we are all unique. Our retreats provide comprehensive and original therapeutic opportunities to support the process. We strive to make this treatment experience as succesful as possible through integrative therapies to encourage self exploration, healing, recovery and aftercare.
Each person's Iboga experience will be specifically tailored to his or her needs upon consultation here at the ranch. Individualized care is essential for succesful treatment, support and maintenance. The goal of therapy is based upon the individual and meeting them where they are along their path to health. It is critical for those being treated to have active participation in their healing process by setting intentions and committing to lifestyle modifications as necessary to support long-term effects of treatment.
Detoxification is the first step in anyone’s health and the powerful cleansing you receive both mentally and physically from Iboga will make you feel young, organic, and vibrant once again. Iboga will detox your body faster and more effectively than any other substance on our planet, and make you feel like your original, organic, centered loving self.
Our Treatments are for people seeking relief from physical health issues, drug addiction, mental and emotional problems. I am an absolute firm believer that there is not one physical ailment or drug addiction that we cannot relieve you of or a spiritual journey you will not benefit from. You will be reset on a molecular level. They call Iboga the plant of truth. This plant is not natural but supernatural and will have a profound effect on you forever. You will soon have what we refer to as the Iboga glow.
