Eboka Talk / Re: Iboga 101 - Spiritual Use: Preparations and Approaches

If I may, I'd like to ask about fasting.

Is it okay to fast about a week before an Iboga flood? Has anyone here done that before? Would it be too taxing on the body? Or would it make for a really clear, positive experience? Btw I am 21, weigh 118 pounds, and have fasted several times before for up to 10 days.

Or a 3 day fast perhaps?

As for Lyme Disease why not get a blood test to rule it in or out? 

I have had several lyme tests. Some are positive. Some are negative. All have a reputation for being innacurate. Lyme disease is one of the trickiest, most difficult to diagnose/treat diseases out there. I'm doing the best I can  ;)

As far as arthritis when you do a flood you often experience a 30 day pain free period.  Sometimes when there is no pain for 30 days your body gets retrained and you do not expect to feel the pain. 

Wow! Um, wow.

Hi Friendly Iboga-people!

My name's Dan, and I'm interested in Iboga for spiritual self-improvement purposes. I don't have any chemical dependency issues, but I certainly do have a rather large burden of addictions to the internet, food (emotional eating) and negative thought patterns. This last one is the main thing that's driven me to seek out Iboga. Sometimes I have incredibly intense periods of being extremely hard on myself.

An important fact about myself is that I have near-crippling rheumatoid arthritis and/or lyme disease. I am in a sea of fatigue that I've just gotten used to, I have a racing mind, and worst of all, severe pain and inflammation in all my major joints, including my jaw. The inflammation has not reached my fingers (or my toes), fortunately--I am a passionate hand drummer and pianist and composer.

Another important fact about me: I strongly believe my mental/emotional hindrances and woes are connected to my physical condition. Having tried many many things to abate my arthritis, I now look to Iboga as a possible cure. I'm not counting on it, don't get me wrong. But I know that it couldn't hurt.

With me I carry perfectionism, hopelessness, complete and utter frustration with authority, and bitterness. I've experienced harrowing moments of ultimate paranoia and desolation, and I wish to get the bottom of that. Especially now. I'm 21, at a clear crossroads in my life. The time is ripe (perhaps overdue) for a genuine coming-of-age experience.

I've experimented sparingly with some other psychedelics: Ayahuasca (once), DMT (~10 sub-breakthrough), Mushrooms (twice), Salvia (~25 times sub-breakthrough), Mescaline (3), Peyote (1.5 times), LSD (twice), LSA (once), MDMA (~7 times). These things have given much insight into myself, but with them I haven't dug as deeply as I intend to with Iboga.

I'm frustrated because I want to do this ASAP. There is an increasing sense of urgency in my life. But I am broke, and it looks like only a gram of Ibogaine costs 200 dollars. Inflated prices or what?

Love and Surrender,
RS
