Hi Beverly, hello list..

I have experience taking TA  for opiate addiction, and I can say with
certainty that it works remarkably. Also, two of my closest friends
have taken both the TA and the HCL for the same reasons and each of
them preferred the TA over the ibogaine hcl. It seemed to us that the
spectrum of other plant alkaloids worked syngersitically to 'get in
there' where the HCL may have 'left off' this not to say that isolated
ibogaine doesn't work thus, only a subjective preference of
materials...I think it is interesting to note that perhaps they could
be used concomitantly or in separate sessions, each using it's unique
and powerful methods to cleanse and heal in different ways. This would
be a good notion to explore in future studies. I myself have not been
too well physically lately and have some nasty oral surgery to look
forward to, it sucks because I have made arrangements to take TA iboga
in the near future to cement and 'recapture' some of the healing that
I experienced months ago in my initial session...I am looking to put
'the wind back in my sails' so to speak, but I may have to put off the
surgery or the session, I'm not sure which just yet..thanks to all for
being here, this list is a remarkable resource, blessings...K
