Eboka Talk / Iboga and therapy
« Last post by andreas1717 on June 09, 2018, 04:28:56 PM »
Hey everyone,

I'm happy to have found this site where people can share their experiences with Iboga. It is a truly amazing plant that seems relatively unknown, in comparison to other plant medicines. I think this is due to the difficulty of the experience that puts people off, as well as the difficulty in describing the experience afterwards.

Anyway, I took part in an iboga ceremony 3 months ago and I'm integrating the experience. These months have been hard but theyve led me to a lot of changes i needed to make in my life. Its like I'm constantly discovering new blockages in my psyche and learning to grow through them. I'm very guided by the truth that I now know.

One of the things I realized is my need for therapy. I have always bottled up emotions and "dealt with things" in silence. I really isolated myself from other. During my iboga experience I was shown the need for community and sharing, something I think is central to a lot of african cultures. And also something we have largely lost touch with in the West, where individualism is prized over community. I realize now I need others, and they need me. We as humans require intimate and honest connection.

To the point of my post. I have started therapy because there are things i just need to get off my chest. I can't keep them inside anymore. What is your experience with counseling? Did you find therapy hindered your experience with Iboga at all, as in creating more problems by talking rather than letting go of the "problem"? How did you find therapy works with Iboga? Necessary? Unnecessary? What are your thoughts?

Thanks for reading and again, I'm happy to be a part of this  online community :)

As far as Magnesium, I get the Epsom Salts 8lb bag for $5 at Walmart.  I don't know if you absorb magnesium through your skin well, but it's great for my back tension.

My friend from NYC sells a magnesium stick that you can charge up in distilled water and get magnesium that way.  Infographics and Youtube DIY videos here:  http://www.healingwaterbottle.com/Tesla_Alkaline_Stick.php

Staying Clean / Desert Island Supplements

#1) Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium. 
I cannot imagine who would not benefit from daily use. 

More is needed during stress or physical exercise. 
This stuff is gold in terms of long term health gains. 

Magnesium controls about 300 different functions in the body that equate to about 1800 other biochemical functions, from supporting nerves to muscles.  It's my #1, and is for other medical professionals I have been able to learn from.

Micro-Dosing / Re: Tachycardia from weed while microdosing

Iboga and Cannabis potentiate each other. Greg Lawrence did an excellent presentation on this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FoLtdzrZ1XY   In low doses (micro and sub flood) Iboga typically acts as a stimulant and causes tachycardia.  Decrease your Iboga dose and How much Cannabis you are taking until you find a comfortable place.

Did you count your macros?  Because, if not, then you didn't do keto. 

IF and Keto are cousins that compliment each other. 

Liver and gallbladder have to be good before one goes keto.  Took me 6 months of adjusting my liver to the high fat...anyway, sounds crazy, I get it.  That's because it is!

"Cures all chronic disease..."

This is kinda BS.

Keto is not for everyone. I did keto for a year and my RA did not go away. Stuff is more complicated than that.

But intermittent fasting is super healthful.

With all this talk about the father / mother spirits, it's interesting to see how someone life changes after they either have to take care of an aging biological member of their family.  Or if they get married and have a kid.  In my case it was my own mother while going through my own physical/mental problems.

I like these forums very much still, but if there are no people discussing it's like talking to a wall.  :-\

I plan on upgrading my computer technology and v-logging my own iboga flood with a caring sitter.  I live in Florida still and haven't found the right person.  It's been almost 10 years since my last flood!

Skinny, I can't imagine what that was like.  I am in that field now, senior care, but still removed and not a primary caregiver.  I have the utmost respect for it from what I have seen caregivers go through.

I am not one to talk to walls, and probably was for awhile here.  That's okay, it served it's purpose, which is constantly revealing itself.

I did a couple video logs of my first flood before, during and after..and am glad I did.  It's a good thing to document if you consider it to be significant.  Maybe one day I will share with you.  Let's stay in touch.  Eboka does not have to die.  It can have a slow drone heart beat with folks as involved as they can be. 

Something drew me back here..in time I'll know why. 

San Pedro is something I'd love to learn more about.  I have some questions.  We should start a thread if there isn't one already.

I stopped coming on here due to a few reasons, one of them was a major falling out with lalababa. 

I am not going into the details, but it was overwhelming so I decided it was easiest to part ways with her Eboka since she spent a lot of time here. 
She and I were friends and then she changed really quickly after falling off the wagon.  I started to drift away from everyone I had met through this site.

I haven't heard from her in a long time.  I figured out most of the people on this forum who now are on Facebook.  She looks like she's MIA.  Usually when you don't hear from someone in a long time, they 'fell off the wagon' or are going through severe depression (such as myself).

Over the years I noticed:  If you are/were a heroin addict...it doesn't matter how many years of clean time you have...once you relapse, you fall harder than you ever did before.  Even ibogaine loses it's magic after Grandpa kicked your ass and straightened you out, he doesn't have the good graces to make it easy after he gave you a 2nd chance to be reborn.

With all this talk about the father / mother spirits, it's interesting to see how someone life changes after they either have to take care of an aging biological member of their family.  Or if they get married and have a kid.  In my case it was my own mother while going through my own physical/mental problems.

Also noticed that KP looks like he got hitched and has a kid, probably why he dropped off the forums. ;)

I still chat with JohnnyBGoode. 
Just poking my head in to see if it's worth another go.  I always enjoy helping others, and am still in the world of health and wellness.   

Eboka introduced me to folks around the world, and was a huge outlet for me in during a freaky time in life that I am grateful to be past.  It's good to circle back.

People don't post iboga diaries anymore or full blown flood reports.  Nowadays it's to post a testimonial to market an ibogaine clinic (which is lame).  I love reading the good, bad, and ugly..the raw grittiness of going through an iboga flood.

I plan on upgrading my computer technology and v-logging my own iboga flood with a caring sitter.  I live in Florida still and haven't found the right person.  It's been almost 10 years since my last flood!

Micro-Dosing / Re: Microdosing without previous flood for depression
« Last post by BlueTiger on June 02, 2018, 12:14:21 AM »
Yesterday, day 5, I increased the dose to 70 mg and felt not different to the other days. Today I’ll take a day off MD just to see how it is.

How's it going?  Did this protocol end up being a positive thing for your depression?
