1. Drink lots of water to help flush out the toxins that were cleaned out.

  2. Plan for a shower or bath the day after your journey. This will help to wash away any residual physical and mental toxins that were cleared out the night before.

  3. Whether you have been abusing substances or not there are several supplements you may consider taking to help regulate the chemistry of your "new" brain. The most important are omega-3 fatty acids which are usually taken in the form of fish or flaxseed oils. Vitamin B6 aids in dopamine and serotonin synthesis. It can be found in many cereal grains (e.g. oatmeal) as well as in beans, bananas, peanuts, and chicken. Vitamin B12 helps to maintain healthy nerve cells. It is found in oysters, clams, liver, trout, salmon, eggs, and dairy foods. Also good are 5-HTP (a serotonin precursor), L-tyrosine & L-phenylalanine (dopamine precursors), D-phenylalanine & DL-phenylalanine (endorphins), and GABA.

  4. There are certain foods that work against healthy brain function. Whenever possible avoid fried, fatty, salty, or overly processed foods and especially refined sugars and carbohydrates. Instead, eat lots of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, fish, and chicken.

  5. Body therapies are very beneficial in the days following your treatment. Massage, reiki, rolfing, acupuncture, and energy work will all help move stuck energies in the body and give even greater sense of freedom from past traumas or events. Although not included, we can arrange these types of therapies during your stay.

  6. Ibogaine is a dream herb. If you don't already keep a dream journal, you may consider starting one prior to and continuing after your session. Useful information regarding your continued growth is often revealed through the dream world.

  7. We encourage you to document your experience. This will not only help you to make more concrete the changes that have taken place within your psyche, but it will lead to a greater understanding of the ibogaine healing process. Be creative, and don't forget to include what may be perceived as negative aspects of your treatment. We need to know as much as we can about the use of ibogaine. If you choose to share an account of your experiences don't include your name, and know that it will be held in the strictest confidence.

  8. It is very important to return to an environment conducive to your healing. The first 12-24 days are especially critical. This is the time that your neural pathways are being reestablished. If you return to an unhealthy situation you risk recreating your old self and revisiting the old patterns you have just worked so hard to dismantle. Please allow yourself sufficient time to stabilize. Once your new self has become firmly established, you will find it possible to interact in a stable, healthful manner with elements of your past that may have previously led to psychological, emotional, or spiritual imbalances.

  9. It is important to have a good support network. Having a therapist, spiritual counselor, or close friends that you can meet with in the weeks and months following your treatment are almost a prerequisite. You can contact us at any time by phone if you need to consult with us as your treatment unfolds.

  10. Remember! Things will come up. That is the nature of this medicine. One of the ways it teaches is by showing you your unconscious, conditioned behaviors in amplified form so that you can become consciously aware of them. Don't panic when something seemingly negative comes into your field of experience. Although it seems counter-intuitive, this is what we are after. You will have in each of these moments the opportunity to make a decision on how you wish to live your life. Will you choose to live out your old patterns or take the opportunity to create a new way of being? The choice is yours. In this state of heightened awareness in the months following your session you will be given the chance to choose the way you want to react to your environment without the fear based automatic responses that formerly were acted out in an unconscious manner.
