Hi all, long time no visit.
I took appx 2 grams of a ibo extract this past Friday, and while extremely discombobulated still and wobbly as hell, I expunged an 80 ml methadone clinic hell.Extremely difficult to walk and even stand or even sit up right STILL, I'm getting better every day, and I'm not feeling meth sick, though I had some major restless leg/twitches last night. I'm hoping that passes sooner than later.WELCOME HOME DANA!!!!!!!!!!!And I hope everyone else is doing well. It'd been six years since my last experience, and was more than a little nervous, even terrified. I told someone six years ago I was through with ibogaine, and his wife smiled at my, and said, "yes, but it is through with you. Anyway, just
quick note here, Peace, love and Always Lotsof respect,Preston

It does reset.  All evidence suggests
this.  BUT  this reset is
temporary and precarious and can be wiped away in a couple of days,
like any reset.  Like you say, reset is no great trick.  The way
ibogaine works - I can sum up the entire experience of the group -
nobody knows.  It interacts with so many different neurotransmitter
mechanisms in the brain that there are endless theories.  It is
certain that some combination of these actions causes the effect.  It
takes away most of the withdrawals in the majority of cases (this is
not guaranteed - individuals can be so different, one from the other,
that no drug can be guaranteed in its effects. Heroin can provide
peace or abject terror.  The latter group tend not to get addicted, so
you don't hear much about them).  This liberation is not the effect,
though - this is a starting point, a chance to go forward into a new
lifestyle.  To expect it to provide
an improved  minor variant of your
old lifestyle is misguided in the extreme. Nor-ibogaine appears to
remain in the body from 3 to 12 months and provides a diminishing
protection during that period.  It also magnifies the effect of other
neuroactive drugs so you may be causing additional harm if you go back
to using other drugs after an ibo flood.  The drug provides a window
of opportunity.  The benefit depends on what you do with this
opportunity.  The ibogaine dossier and other online links provide
heaps of useful information.  Howards Lotsof and his cronies provided
immensely useful information that still remains the most reliable
information.  There is also a vast amount of medical testing that can
be accessed online.  User forums must be read with great caution.
Good luck.

1962?68: Bowie did his foundational work with early bands the Konrads to the Riot Squad.

1969?73: Was his demonstrative work in psychedelic folk to glam rock that included Space Oddity, Hunky Dory and the ever classic fable that became Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

1974?76: Were the Diamond Dog years of
soul, funk and the Thin White Duke. His work during this period is some of his crowning achievements. The Man Who Fell to Earth gains film acclaim for his acting career.

1976?79: With albums like Low in the Berlin era, Bowie became the eclectic artist most fans know him for. Heroes was an important single during this era also.

1980?89: Bowie propels from superstar to mega star with albums like Tonight, Scary Monsters and Let's Dance. The Title track for Let's Dance reaches number one. He appears in the Jim Henson film Labyrinth also.

1989?91: Tin Machine and Bowie take a dynamically different approach to his work. Although a dream team approach for a band, the lineup did not work as the democracy that Bowie hoped for, but the music is very cool.

1992?99: The electronica approach for this era is complimented by the collaboration of Bowie and Trent Reznor. Nine Inch Nails becomes a touring partner for this period also. I'm
Afriad of Americans is a classic statement of the new direction his music has taken.

1999?present: The internet, remixing and collaborations with the new social media, are the hardware of the neoclassicist Bowie movement of today. Bowie achieves artistic awards and merits long deserved from his peer community. Bowie plays Nikola Tesla in the film The Prestige.

Blessings on this birthday number 65.

Your Arizona fans love you as much today as ever.

In the words of biographer Thomas Forget , "Because he has succeeded in so many different styles of music, it is almost impossible to find a popular artist today that has not been influenced by David Bowie."

David Bowie has been many characters on stage, in film and on the airwaves. He has been his own prophetic bard, a traveling minstrel always telling tales of his own life in his songs. As Ziggy once said so profoundly, " When the kids had killed the man, they had to
break up the band ."

Happy Birthday to Major Tom.

Hello Andrew,

Seems like you do not have much trust in the drug companies.  Just a day or
two ago I looked up Methadone and oh man you got to read it to believe it.
It says an addict uses heroin then switches over to Methadone where they
can get a correct dose of quality pharmaceutical medicine.  Then when
stable they can detox at the rate of 5 to 10mg per week.  Oh come on 5 to
10 mg per week - no way.

Everyone who tried Methadone has said it is harder to quit than most
anything except sub.  It was much like a
infomercial only you read it.  Now
here is the part where ya got to pay attention:  It says it may be a two or
three year program.  OK if you can detox at 5 mg a week and you start with
less than 100mg you should be off in a year, Right?? That's the math.
Seems like it has not been updated since 1969 or so.

Best,

- JIM

Quick question. If someone is talking Lamictal (lamotrigine), but not for seizures or bipolar but rather for an attention/cognitive issue, does he have to stop talking the Lamictal before the Ibogaine treatment? In this case, whenever he stops, he gets these side effects from stopping, such as pins and needles, etc., which make it very uncomfortable. So would he need to stop it weeks before the Ibogaine (I mean, will the Lamictal hurt the Ibogaine treatment and make it less effective), or can he stay on the Lamictal until the Ibogaine treatment (or maybe stop it just days or only one week before)? As always, thank you to all who are considerate enough to respond! Chris -------------- next part -------------- An HTML attachment was scrubbed...

Then again this method is supposedly "the pick" but is still way outdated and I don't believe there is a "One Size Fits All" solution to the life we have been given.BTW XANAX has been labeled "Worse than Heroin" and there is a book of the same name. The road we travel is a personal journey specifically tailored for each of us in my belief (and many other's). There is no right or wrong way,just the way. I have watched Methadonia and High on Crack Street amongst many others, so I do understand the plight of those on Methadone. My heart goes out to all who are fighting for their lives with this BS. I also watched Detox or Die which is absolutely brilliant. GenerationRx,Making a Killing and those Big Pharma doco's are excellent and absolutely true! Bear in mind that I'm 41 now and was prescribed Xanax for "Panic Disorder" in 2003,so a lot of things have happened since then.Learning in 2007 that the drug I was on had been known to be extremely addictive after as little as 3 weeks use and would eventually reach a "cap" of therapeutic dose efficacy since to late 50's is what turned my sails!!!...I was like WTF!!!???...why does my GP keep putting the doses up when it aint gong to do JACK from here on? I learned a lot fast and educated my GP,now he's a Benzo-Wise Doctor and very proud of my progress.We are really good mates now after all this and I have his full support which many don't have from their Doc's.Sometimes you just have to take control, as it is YOUR life in their hands. Remind them of this,it's the first line in their Oath There are so many contributing factors to everyone's story that really,in essence,one must really learn to appreciate this fact before one can move forward....just think of the scene in The Matrix where Neo gets out of the car and what Trinity says..... I do realise that Ibogaine is not usually used for Benzo's as it is for Opiates, but one thing we all have in common is that we do "know where that road goes" and we "have made a choice already".I'm extremely humbled and overjoyed to be part of MindVox as I know that here,no matter whether it's Cocaine,Speed,Heroin or Pharmaceuticals,we are all searching for ourselves again. The ride I have chosen with this withdrawal has slowly unfolded on many levels and taught me through pain and determination a hell of a lot to put it mildly....if I had a dollar for every time a GP or so called specialist has said "It shouldn't take that long...I've seen people come off them quicker" LOL...I have met some of those that have and man, they are just in another mess,just not the one they were in. I chose the road less travelled and will be far richer for the experience...an experience I will pay back to others in the same position. It is my duty of care and also part of my wonderful story. For myslef, like Aya,Tryptamines and Amanita showed me in pieces of a puzzle if you will, Ibo is part of my path to work out "why I made the choice" To put things in persective,as someone said: "Last time I checked,we all have an expiration date!". I'll be damned if I don't nut this out before that comes around I don't expect Ibo to do anything more than what I put in,but it is on my path, as I am a warrior,teacher,student and a healer at heart. It will happen when the boat arrives and the boat always arrives on time The world we live in is supposed to be crazy,not us....this I see IS the true nature of things. This is where the "Big Pharma,Big X-factor" comes in as I see it. There are definitely Elite and they know only power,lust and greed.They also know the mechanics behind the human race. We have Love,Compassion,the ability for Reason,Forgiveness and a sense of Unity.These "Types" have none of these attributes and so place us in useful positions(to them) with the aid of these addictive drugs. If you were heartless and lazy,wouldn't you? Some are to dumb us down to slow our natural progression,some to improve production like ants with a dozen beers after work to put us back again and some deemed illicit,yet reasonably tolerated,so we think we are getting away with it and need these drugs.So we take more and the seeking becomes the addiction. Very clever design,but flawed by nature if analyzed in this light. The very things they try to instill in some of us use fear based tactics as their only tool. This is why there is an arbitrary scale for punishable and allowable drug use. Is it any wonder that right now the Military troops from Afghanistan are speaking out and don't want war? Is it any wonder that Opium production which,when the US was working trade deals out for Oil,was nearly Zero as compared to post "False-Flag" 911 which are now up 75%?!....The US needs that Heroin!! Not to mention the prescription drug side of things and the huge profits and pay-offs everyone gets for passing this crap down the line. Yes it's all about money. I would strongly recommend anyone who seeks the road of healing, to watch(even rewatch) The Matrix Trilogy and the Animatrix,then watch Kymatica,then "Philosophy and The Matrix". Umm and please remember to help fight Chevron by donating whatever you can afford to help save the Amazon, via Amazonwatch.Every dollar counts,and they are counting on us as much as we have on them. Thanks for the replies,comments and the chance to speak. The catch-cry from our home-grown Aussie hip-hop dudes,Bliss and Esso goes out to you guys.... "Peace,Love and Unity" Take care my new friends, we will win. Andrew...

Just a day or two ago I looked up Methadone and oh man you got to read it to believe it. It says an addict uses heroin then switches over to Methadone where they can get a correct dose of quality pharmaceutical medicine. Then when stable they can detox at the rate of 5 to 10mg per week. Oh come on 5 to 10 mg per week - no way. Everyone who tried Methadone has said it is harder to quit than most anything except sub. It was much like a infomercial only you read it. Now here is the part where ya got to pay attention: It says it may be a two or three year program. OK if you can detox at 5 mg a week and you start with less than 100mg you should be off in a year, Right?? That's the math. Seems like it has not been updated since 1969 or so.

I took a test dose of 250mg TA a few weeks back as I was concerned about going overseas and finding that I couldn't tolerate Ibo, an allergic reaction or vomitted it up, in which case I would have been in real trouble. I assumed that this dose was high enough to be a good test, but low enough to not have any significant effect. However, after a few hours, it did begin to have an effect. A little like mushrooms or LSD, but it felt almost like an animal presence inside me. The next day still getting a bit of peripheral visual distortion. Funny dreams for a few days. And for a few hours there was the vaguely insightful dreaming I've read about. But for the week that followed I could still feel its presence inside me, which is why I asked the question. I like to be prepared. This tells me that I cannot be prepared, but obviously what I want is something pretty dramatic, so I guess I just need to be ready to hold on for the ride. Lots of very helpful information. Thanks again.

I did opiates a few days after an ibogaine flood, and it not only took less to feel it, but it was also not pleasant, like opiates used to be.? It could have been because the iboga alkaloids also potentiate opioids, but I had detoxed without iboga before and remained clean for as many as 3 weeks, and it still took me pretty much my normal dose to get where I needed to when I relapsed.?

I was
doing 3-5 bags to get well, and after a detox without iboga, I remained clean for 3 weeks.? After 3 weeks of being pretty miserable, I did 3 bags, and it made me feel better and I got a bit of a buzz.? After doing an iboga detox, a few days later, I tried heroin, and because I was told it would "reset" my tolerance, I was cautious, and did one bag.? It felt as if I had done my normal 3-5 bags, only not as pleasant.? I would have gotten really sick, had I used my normal 3-5 bags.? I am not sure if this is the "proof" you are asking for, but that's how it worked for me.

There is also a PDF in which they documented what is called dirty maintenance, where people used iboga with their pain meds, so they could reduce their tolerance to their meds, so that they were more effective.? The PDF is here: http://ibogaine.mindvox.com/Articles/MAPS-Ibogaine2.pdf? Scroll down
to page 23, where it says, "Dirty Maintenance" for actual documented details.

Hope this helps!

Subject: [Ibogaine] Dear Ibogaine List

Dear Ibogaine List,

Happy new year to all. I am new to the list, and plan on doing Ibogaine shortly. I am in a situation which requires me to be on opiate painkillers. While researching the concept of tolerance to painkiller medications, I came across an article on Mindvox which describes how Ibogaine works terrific to reduce tolerance down to almost the starting point. I did a lot of digging and exploring after that, and it seems as if everyone (ranging from
professionals to providers to "patients") all agree that Ibogaine does work to "reset" tolerance (this was discussed in a recent post on this Ibogaine forum).

What I would like to ask is -- how do we know that Ibogaine resets tolerance? If a person does Ibogaine and a month later they take the medicine again, their tolerance would be back way down anyhow.

The only way to know that it resets tolerance is to have someone tolerant to opiates do the Ibogaine, and within a few days take the opiate medication. Then we would know if the tolerance is reset.

So I would love to hear back as to "how" and "why" it became so well accepted and agreed upon by everyone in the Ibogaine community that it does reset tolerance.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Warm wishes,

Aiden

No kidding, sister, any remanent of an anti-convulsant with Ibo would be
a concern, I would imagine.

how itfeels post flood
Message-ID:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=windows-1252

As I started this post I think I should make something about my point
of view clear.  I used a whole range of drugs for a long time.
Hallucinogens like LSD, mescaline, mushrooms, gave me as certain
amount of knowledge.  But they distort processes of the mind, they
don't show god to you.  I ended up using heroin because it
was the
purest and cleanest painkiller.  It did not cause damage in the way
that alcohol does.  It does not close down consciousness as the benzos
do.  I went to prozac because it worked with very little in the way of
side effects.  However it is only good over the relatively short term.
Now I take only methadone.  It has served me well.  It has enabled me
to live my life without closing down consciousness.  That is why I
always found benzos utterly unbearable.  I assume that these drugs
effect people in different ways but at the same time I've found that
people who combine methadone with alcohol or benzos turn to zombies
and say methadone is to blame.  The opiates are better drugs than
much cleaner than pethidine or palfium or any of the non-opiate
derived  others.  Likewise I find methadone
cleaner than the codeine
variants that currently have 1.4 million people addicted in the USA.
The notion of getting off methadone and using a bit of valium to keep
me cool is the same as getting off beer onto methylated spirits.  So
that's where this post comes from.  I'm concerned about having
noribogaine in my system for 6 months although the risk benefit
analysis tells me it's worthwhile.  So I don't regard methadone as a
horrible evil.  It is better and cleaner than suboxone which I tried
for a couple of months.  Methadone is one of the best tools that a
junkie can find to get off the heroin cycle of crime and misery.   It
is the crime and misery that is the problem, not the heroin.  Heroin
was legal in Australia until the 60s and was used for major pain, such
as childbirth.  Many doctors got addicted to it.  Doctors familiar
with this situation all said they would
be much happier with a heroin
addicted doctor operating on them than an alcoholic.  An alcoholic is
impaired 100% of the time.  On a level dose a heroin addict is highly
functional.  Likewise there is no benzo dose that does not impair
consciousness.  People have a right to make that choice if they wish.
I feel that I might be able to write better if I get off methadone.
It is highly addictive and very hard to get off, but being on it at a
medium or lower dose without hypnotics like alcohol or benzos enables
a pretty alert and conscious lifestyle (for many people anyway).  One
of the things I really miss is that I can't do a vipassana meditation
course while on methadone, or it would be wasted anyhow.  I have no
interest at all in discovering god through hallucinogens.  I want
clarity of mind and that is why I'll be using ibogaine.  I feel the
experience would be valuable for
other reasons but that is a side
benefit.  What I want is a reasonably painless (Although I expect
fairly terrifying and difficult) addiction interruption.  At the same
time I don't particularly want to use purified noribogaine which works
without the dream stage because I believe the dream stage is part of a
more substantive mental reset without which the addiction reset is
also dearly hope that ibogaine moves into the greater safety of the
conventional medical system, despite its monstrous problems.  That way
hundreds and thousands may benefit in safety, rather than a few in the
underground clinics, although these remain essential to the
continuance of research. I rely on two people for this attitude.
Howard Lotsof said that ibogaine should be used in a medical
environment if at all possible.  Deborah Mash, the
most massively
experienced neurologist, says that ibogaine should "never ever" be
used outside of a hospital environment.  However I believe that people
should be free to take that risk if they wish.  But it is a risk.  If
one in 300 heroin users died I would have died many times over.
Anyhow, that's where I come from and the reason for this post.  It is
not a matter of escaping some terrible evil of methadone or heroin, it
is a mater of making best use of the options available so that I can
make the best life possible for myself.  Pharmas are massively corrupt
and misdirected because of profit drive.  They are not evil.  The
current treatment modalities for addiction are not horrific or evil,
but they do have major side effects.  It is incredibly difficult to
make informed choices about drugs and treatments when you're
depressed, scared, sick etc. but that's what I'm trying
to do - become
informed about a drug so I know what I'm getting into.  Not battling
evil or seeking god in a drug.  A lot of people may find this
offensive.  That's the nature of the world.  I hope this drug will
become available to godseekers, fools like me, even funny looking
aliens if they need it.  But I'm about gaining knowledge, not fighting
evil people who manipulate me.  I've screwed up all on my own, without
the help of evil conspiracies dragging me down.

I mean no disrespect for if you want to go and feel that it will help by all means go but the answer may lie in you and the Ibo brings it out so ya can deal with it. Kind of reminds me of the time when the Beatles went to India to meditate with some yoga guy. I mean why did they have to go to India couldn't they meditate in England?? Anyway, I hope you find what your looking for if so please drop us a line and let us know.

Opioids (heroin type drugs) work because they connect chemically to a group of 3 neuron receptors in the brain (there are more than this but these are the main ones). The chemicals that connect are in two main groups called agonists (activators) and antagonists (blockers).? Amongst the agonists (like heroin morphine etc) there are some called competitive and some called non-competitive.? Heroin and morphine are non-competitive, meaning that you can take one, then the other will add to the effect if taken. Nor-ibogaine, the active component of ibogaine HCL is non-competitive, so it increases the effect of other opiates.? Subutex is a competitive agonist/antagonist.? It is a bit active, but it also blocks the receptors so that other drugs won't work. This means that it actively works against ibo and makes the process that much harder. But it is relatively short acting.? In a month or less it is completely gone from your system, at which point the MScontin or whatever you've replaced it with is all that you have to deal with. Which means that ibo has the maximum probability of success.? Other factors for you to consider, however, are that you are already on a dose of subutex that is lower than many people could tolerate.? Many people at that level would be already feeling like crap.? That means you're already going well if you're feeling okay at that level.? A lot of people step off subutex at that level without major consequences. It might be worth your while reducing and quitting the subutex and see what happens.? If it is too painful, then go onto the MSContin, get yourself stabilised and then give the ibo a go. Ibo is a dangerous drug and not to be taken lightly, though, so don't use it if you don't need it. You really are in a great position to get clean.? Some psychological support of whatever kind you can find and works for you would be really useful.? And if you go the ibo route you should get an experienced provider.? Even if you're young and healthy you really need someone reliable and experienced to look after you.? Also, many people relapse many times before getting clean, so don't beat yourself up if that happens.? You learn a bit more each time.? (I posted this on another listing, then realised this is the main one so I've copied it here as it may have some value.? Then again, maybe not, but it's the thought that counts)? Good luck.

This is why cold turkey for Benzo's and the like are NOT recommended,one could end up in a wooden box pronto. You need to let your brain chemistry slowly fight back for normal function even if this means going through bouts of pins and needles,cold extremeties,flu like symptoms,spasms....it's your body/brain repairing. Something I have been dealing with for a long time,it's rough but must be done. So take it slow for the better outcome.The end result is more important junkboy64,wishing you well. Andrew...

If someone is talking Lamictal (lamotrigine), but not for seizures or bipolar but rather for an attention/cognitive issue, does he have to stop talking the Lamictal before the Ibogaine treatment? In this case, whenever he stops, he gets these side effects from stopping, such as pins and needles, etc., which make it very uncomfortable. So would he need to stop it weeks before the Ibogaine (I mean, will the Lamictal hurt the Ibogaine treatment and make it less effective), or can he stay on the Lamictal until the Ibogaine treatment (or maybe stop it just days or only one week before)? As always, thank you to all who are considerate enough to respond!

In any case, you want to test the state of your current health, as you are when taking the ibo, not the way you might be after you do the ibo. If you're an athlete and you want to know your chance of winning a race, you test your fitness just before the race, not how you might be in 6 months of more training. Test as close to the time as possible, but a few weeks or even months shouldn't make much difference as long as nothing drastic happens in between. Again, a good provider who can deal with any problems, small or large, can make all the difference. In the experimental past roughly one person in 300 has died on ibogaine. That was before the testing regime was developed. If your heart tests okay that massively reduces the risk as most who died had heart problems. Of the other deaths most had taken other drugs at the same time as the ibogaine (I don't mean the day before, which is the accepted safety point. If you're just beginning to feel withdrawals, that's when you take the ibo so that it takes over from the opiate, doesn't combine with it in a major way.) A good provider can make the risk tiny and the likelihood of success very good.

Sara,

I don't think it is entire bullshit as you have claimed! I think on this
very platform we have discussed this before, you claim that most deaths have
been those that have been done in clinic's. Yes death has occurred in
clinic's and we all aware of them, as they are recorded deaths, what about
all those that are unrecorded the underground, those done in the bush etc
etc. I personally have heard of a treatment done in a motel and when things
got out of hand the so called provider just left the patient /client and
disassociated themselves to the events
around that.
I think that there are many more deaths than those that have been recorded,
these have been over looked and or discounted due to a so called secondary
event.

Come on lets deal with the real world !

Regards.

This is bullshit!  what is underground, when everybody knows? what is
unethical?
most of the people who have died during the treatment died in a
medical
facility.

I had to read this article twice and still got nothing.  For all I know the guy didn't like the food?  More information would of been helpful.  Nothing is said other then this guy is not in the Medical field?  So what happen that was terribly wrong?   Did he have a heart attack, resp. problems?  what?  did he just feel lethargy or never been thru wd before and has no idea what he did get?

All I got from this article is that This Beau guy is not in the medical field.  Something went wrong  but not willing to share what it was?  So much NOT said.  What I don't understand is why post such a negative article without anything of substance other then this guy is not working with Solo?  For all I know Dr Solo wrote this himself
and just angry that another client got by him without paying 7500 to the doctor.

I am not saying the Doctor does not have the right to charge whatever he wants.  After all one does not go to medical school all those yrs to make minimal wage.  But really... what went wrong, what happen,  WHy did this guy need to go to the hospital?  IT says nothing but slander in my eyes.

I do think that someone in the medical field needs to be present during the experience.  After all, the sooner one recognizes that someone is not compensating well, the sooner one acts the better the chances for the client.  For all I know this person came to Iboga straight from Methadone or suboxone, or lied to the provider about pass hx, lied about what meds he was on.  Just no way to tell since so little was told of WHAT happen.  So I think the article is crap.

We all have our choices to make.  NO one puts a gun to
your head to participate in this experience.  NO one held a gun to this persons head saying " NO, you cant pay 7000 in stead of 3000 to a Non medical, non MD."  If its important that a MD be present then pay for it.  Your choice.
Also when one treats in MX, it is not underground.  I have heard some terrible stories but no proof that it ever really happen.  I have heard that providers are cutting benzo doses in half and claiming that Iboga will take one thru Benzo detox safely.  I have heard that there are providers doing dope or addicted themselves as they provide after care to clients or worse providing tx themselves.  BUt have I seen this... NOPE.  I have even heard that there are providers out there that sell body parts to the black market when addicts die.  THat one really made me giggle.  I have been told by pass clients that there are folks out there in the UG that are willing to treat three at
once.... really, how can you watch three at once?

I have seen clients come to Iboga and walk away gaining wt the first week after they receive this treatment, no WD symptoms but because they didn't walk away feeling like they did pre addiction say it didn't work.  Forget the fact that the addiction began 30yrs prior.  Some actually think they are gonna feel like they are in their 20s when the spend from 20 to 50yrs of age doing dope going from the couch to chair for 30ys?   So again... what information did this article give anyone other then Beau is not in the Medical field?  Most providers I know are not in the Medical field.  I don't think Sarah is a RN or LPN but I do believe she offers a safe and complete treatment.  Not that I went there but so many have.  I have had clients lie to me about their hx... not mentioning that they are on Tegrotal or dilantin for a life time condition of seizures..fear it
would knock them out of the treatment but then complain ......really folks, we are working with a group of folks that hon
esty is something that has been lost.  I for one did not mention to Rocky that I had MS in fear it would knock me out of the running.

It is so important to talk\research the provider you choose.  Ask what they did\do for a living prior and what medical training they may or may not have.  Be sure that MONEY is not why you choose them but you choose them because you feel safe, they know what they are doing, talk to others they  have treated.  IF someone claims to be a RN, Lpn, practitioner, MD, mid wife or what ever google them, be sure they actually have a Medical license, where they attended Collage.  So easy to do.  Every one that has ever had or have a license it so easy to find on the net.  IF its not there then I bet they don't have it and never has had it.  I know
that anyone can look up my credentials.  I have given my RN license number out for them to look up on the net.  I went two yrs pre medical... that did not make me a MD or even close to one.

I am not saying the only quantified providers are in the medical field.  I have worked with MDs that I would not let swab my dogs throat, Nurses that miss the boat when it comes to any assessment skills.  I have heard folks that went to one semester and claim to be in the medical field.    I have read on this forum those that are providing and not know how to treat a low bld pressure or even what a resting BP\heart rate looks like. I also know that there are "clinics" that don't have a medical person with\in two miles of the clinic when the actual treatment is taken place but claim to have MDs working for the place.  The word CLinic does not mean what we are use to in the good ole USA.  That word is use very
loosely.  That word does not mean a medical environment.  For me.. when I went for my treatment I could of cared less if I saw a MD.  I could of cared less that my providers had no medical background.  What I did expect was that my provider not be addicted to dope themsel
ves.  Provide me with the safest they were able.  I could of care less if I died during the treatment, It would of been more humane then the slow death I was experiencing at my own hand.  I paid for my after care.  Sasha and Jessica were my aftercare providers and I was very well taken care of.  Sasha really stepped up to the plate when it came to food, Jessica was very in tune to my depression and gave me the time I needed to voice it.  Rocky, Mary and Christ checked my BP more then I felt it was needed but they knew more then I did at the time... I felt very safe during my process for sure.  I paid for it, it wasn't
free.  It was my own fault that I didn't get boosters, I didn't do enough research.

So to those looking for a qualified provider... do your research.  Ask for numbers of those that they have treated.  Talk to more then one.  I can write a beautiful testimony on how Sister treated me... even if I am Sister.  LOL  get the picture?  That old saying "you get what you pay for" I find so true.  I feel I did pay the price for a real clinic, a MD present but even without all of that I did walk away knowing that I had a chance to remain clean, if I choose too.  I still had a lot of work to do to help myself feel better.  I had severe lethargy, chills/sweats and depression.  I had to do the work myself to get thru this stage.  Iboga did not make me grow up overnight either.  Another thing I had to work thru.

So... that article told me shit.  Told me that the person went for
the cheapest he/she could find and wanted Iboga to fix everything as many of us addicts do.  As addicts, we blame others for our choices, we want to take every shortcut there is avail.  We do NOT want to suffer emotional or physical discomforts.  I know this because I am a Addict and every addict I ever met has the same qualities.
To me... that article sounds like a disgruntle client.  Went for the cheapest tx he could find then not happy with the outcome.  For all I know this person expected to feel how he did before his addiction began that could of been 30yrs prior.  Never been thru CT or even a slow wean of his dope.  Has no idea what being dope sick feels like.  I am not taken up for thie Beau either.  I don't know, never met nor have I done any research on him.  Could be a person that had no intention of getting clean but only wanted to lower his tolerance so they could continue to dope on for
less money.  I see the article as pure slander.

If you read it twice it should've been clear that the post wasn't authored
by a "client" but by another clinic who received a call from the patient's
wife asking for advice. Why would you expect this clinic to know what went
wrong at Transitions? And what in the post led you to believe the
"patient"
was looking for an inexpensive treatment? I believe Transitions charges
$7500 per treatment, that doesn't seem cheap. Why would you consider the post slanderous?

Apparently, the people who were called are in Cancun and the client was dropped at the San Ysidro point of entry, how would they know what went wrong?
