Originally used as an opiate taper, Suboxone has become a replacement treatment for substances like methadone that help with withdrawals from cases of heroin addiction. Treatment for Suboxone dependency is a bit complex as the substance provides a stacking effect that forces the drug to remain in one’s system for prolonged periods of time. Suboxene also has a long half-life that lasts for approximately 37 hours, and is extremely “sticky” in the neuro-receptors in one’s brain.
Ibogaine is excellent in flooding the receptor sites in the brain, but due to the sticky nature of Suboxone opiate dependency often reappears. This renders treatment with Ibogaine inefficient unless the amount of Suboxone in one’s system is low enough that Ibogaine can bind to all receptors in the mind that need to be reset. There are also conflicting cardiac warnings in the combination of Ibogaine and Suboxone. Treatment with Ibogaine for Suboxone will provide excellent results so long as it is taken at the correct time.
It is suggested that one waits a few weeks after ceasing Suboxone before seeking treatment with Ibogaine. As withdrawals from Suboxone can be extremely intense it is recommended that the patient temporarily switch to another opiate stabilizer such as morphine or methadone for the interval period between ceasing Suboxone and beginning treatment with Ibogaine. This will allow for the Suboxone to decrease in the system and keep withdrawal symptoms at a minimum. Once levels are low enough in the body, treatment with Ibogaine can be administered.
While Suboxone does wonders for stabilizing one’s addiction to heroin and other opiates, it is also simply replacing one poison with another, leaving one still shackled to the chains of addiction. There are many addicts who feel they cannot control their urge to use drugs of any kind, and this is where the potential for abuse of Suboxone lies. When abused, Suboxone is used in excessive quantities and holds the power to do irreparable damage. Whether taken as prescribed or abused as another addiction, Suboxone is terrible for one’s health and can be detrimental to those that want to break free from addiction for good.
When used in excess Suboxone causes extremely slow and weakened breathing, a decrease in heart rate, and lack of coordination. One that is abusing Suboxone may find themselves dizzy and tired with reflexes and motor skills functioning at a much slower rate than usual. Used for prolonged periods of time it also has the potential to cause extreme damage to kidney and liver function. Suboxone causes the central nervous system to weaken and also makes the brain function at a much slower rate. Prolonged use of Suboxone can do irreparable damage to one’s body and state of well-being.
When the decision has been made to get off Suboxone for good and be free from the ties of addiction, Ibogaine provides an excellent ground for recovery. After a three week detox from Suboxone with other opiate stabilizers, Ibogaine can prove to be the perfect treatment for complete recovery. When levels of Suboxone have weakened in the mind, Ibogaine does its miraculous job of binding to these receptors and completely resets the neurotransmitters in the mind that have known only addiction.
To truly live a life free from addiction from not only heroin and other opiates, but from the pharmaceuticals designed to curb addiction it is necessary to receive treatment that works at a fundamental level. Not only will Ibogaine reset neurotransmitters to defeat opiate dependency, but it will act as a catalyst to explore personal reasons for addiction and help one heal at deep levels within the mind. After Ibogaine helps with the physical dependency that keeps addicts trapped it takes the patient on a deeply psycho-spiritual journey so that they may uncover hidden memories and past traumas that first led them down the road of addiction.
Those that receive treatment with Ibogaine for Suboxone have reported feeling better than they have in years with no desire to return to using the substance at all. Ibogaine does more than replace one poison with another and is completely natural. It has been used for years as a healing substance and offers freedom like no other treatment program can.
