Medical Guidelines

You should stop using any medication that is not necessary for life support. This includes any pharmaceutical products that work to suppress symptoms. It is necessary to stop using medications as much as two to three weeks before and after taking Iboga. Most of the medications may reduce Iboga’s healing potential or alter its effects. Some of the medications could also be extremely dangerous in combination with Iboga. For your safety don’t book a retreat if you are under any psychiatric medication. We recommend you to speak to your doctor and see  all options to quit all psychiatric medications for a minimum of two months. Iboga can be very dangerous if combined with psychiatric medications. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS!!!

Is important to trust that the Iboga has the potential to cleanse and detox the body and mind, so there is no necessary diets, nor detox. However we are NOT A CLINIC NOR REHAB AND WE DO NOT OFFER DRUG DETOX, if you suffer from drug addiction we recommend you to check in to a detox clinic before coming to our retreat (we do drug tests before each ceremony). Please check below the drugs to be avoided with Iboga page.

Psychological Safety

If you have schizophrenia or mental disorder, please read:

It is also important to take psychological safety into consideration. People with personality disorders or a history of mental disorders (such as borderline, schizophrenia, etc) are at risk if they use Iboga. Discover Iboga carries out a screening questionnaire for all potential guests that evaluates the presence of the above-mentioned risk factors. We treat the safety of our guests as of utmost importance and ensure that all measures, including 24-hour supervision, are adopted as and where necessary.
