General Discussion / Re: How does Iboga cause heart issues?
« on: April 28, 2018, 04:36:45 AM »
Thank you , i are spectre, this is a very succinct answer. So it is basically ibogaine which causes most of the problems. I wonder if taking TA would be the least dangerous then, since ibogaine is only one of the alkoloids and also taking an electrolyte/mineral drink during the course of a treatment? I am also wondering if heart problems are likely to occur with microdosing, if there is a dosage at which these issues with potassium are less less/not likely to occur, i.e. are heart problems dose dependent?

General Discussion / How does Iboga cause heart issues?
« on: April 11, 2018, 04:48:09 AM »
I have looked into this quite a few times but can't find a definitive answer. It seems that in the instances in which Iboga/Ibogaine has been identified as sole cause of death (i.e. not because the patient has been in withdrawal from opiates or any other risk factors), deaths have occured because it has affected patients hearts. I would like to understand exactly what Iboga does to the heart (i.e. does it make the heartbeat irregular, make it slow down etc)?

What I would like to understand is how it affects the heart, ie. what chemical within Iboga is responsible for affecting the heart and is this risk associated with all formulations (ie. root bark, TA, HCL) or is it less likely to occur with specific formulations, such as Ibogaine HCL? Also, is the risk of heart problems also likely to occur if taking Voacanga Africana as an alternative to Iboga?

Could risk of heart problems be ameliorated by taking for example, magnesium taurate or magnesium orotate alongside the treatment (magnesium is essential for the heart and these types are specifically useful for stopping things like irregular heartbeat etc?) Presumably the Iboga spirit would be more attuned to something natural like magnesium which most people lack in their diet, rather than some pharmacological heart drug which could adversely affect the treatment?

I personally have had no experience with homeopathic iboga delusions.

Ahem

Dilutions.

:P

Good to know. I am wondering what you make of the stories in the link above? Do you think these are made up/exaggerated?

Micro-Dosing / Anyone tried homeopathic iboga?

I posted this originally in the General forum, but that doesn't seem to have much activity, so I am also posting here. Hope that is ok.

I know a lot of people think homeopathy is bunk, but I was intrigued by this account of a homeopathic doctor, treating 3 different patients with varying homeopathic dilutions of iboga;

The stories certainly sound like typical iboga responses.

I have purchased the homeopathic remedy of Tabernanthe iboga LM1 to see if it has any effects and so far, I have not noticed anything out of the ordinary but I have not been taking it very long. I would prefer to buy an Iboga tincture but I live in the UK where it is impossible to find Iboga and none of the herbal shops in the Netherlands will send me the tincture, so I have had to resort to trying the homeopathic remedy as a first trial.

Has anyone else tried this or have any suggestions for how I can acquire iboga (I only want to microdose, not do a full flood)?
