Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Ibogaine
As a novel catalyst for change, ibogaine therapy has been recognized for its profound therapeutic affect on people suffering from post traumatic stress disorder, commonly referred to as PTSD.
During ibogaine therapy sessions hopes and intentions arise out of the subconscious and are received and accepted by the inquisitive areas of our minds.
Many people suffering from PTSD benefit greatly from this receiving and accepting action that ibogaine therapy evokes in the mind.
PTSD sufferers commonly face a psychological firewall of sorts – a thought-filtering system that blocks images from memories and signals cortisol release when the conscious thought process responds to the subconscious mind.
Alongside of ibogaine’s novel anti addictive properties there’s been a growing level of medical interest in the obvious and overwhelming psychological benefits of ibogaine in the treatment of PTSD, spiritual insight and personal growth.
A primary reason for greater attention falling on the anti addictive qualities of ibogaine therapy is primarily that the media has always focused, first and foremost on the anti addictive benefits of ibogaine in opiate addiction interruption.
This is due to the fact that addiction interruption results are significantly easier to record and measure while long-lasting psychosomatic mood states and wellbeing type benefits are all the more difficult to discern and access.
Many people choose to experience ibogaine treatment with the hopes that the therapeutic benefits may increase our internal awareness of ourselves. Ibogaine allows the mind and body suffering from PTSD to literally heal itself – overnight.
People receiving ibogaine treatment for PTSD often feel as if they’ve been revealed to core psychological characteristics of themselves and in retrospect can let the past go and move forward in life.
Alternative medicines such as deep tissue massage and reflexology can compliment ibogaine therapy throughout the initial phases of treatment.
People new to the ibogaine experience can expect and will notice that ibogaine induced awareness tends to awaken youthful energy helping people achieve clarity and balance in life by awakening unconscious areas of the mind to active streams of consciousness.
Self awareness itself naturally rebells against cyclical thought in general thought processes. This “nature of thought” can be revealed to us during introspective dream sequences that arise throughout the ibogaine experience.
During ibogaine therapy sessions, rapid eye movement is active for twelve to eighteen hours throughout the visionary phases of the experience.
All individuals that take ibogaine, irrespective of initial driving desires for treatment, begins a personal introspection during the visionary phase.
People often encounters a very authentic and real explanation for why they are the way they are during this introspective period.
PTSD doesn’t allow for liberated perspectives to persist in the face of horrific memory and emotional pain. On ibogaine, behaviors and personality traits can be understood through an objective and emotionally liberated perspective.
Ibogaine induced psychological introspection reveals the mechanics of all mental and emotional behavioral responses commonly labeled disorders compulsions that share a psychosomatic origin as unnecessary repetitions of psychosis.
This type of internal inquiry allows one to finally disregard any psychosis at the initial stages of its cyclical manifestations, thus allowing new thought to take precedence within an unlimited construct of the mind.
If a psychological action or behavioral pattern has is roots and is supported by pragmatic mind and linear thought processing and does not originate from the organic structures (cellular) of the individual’s Central nerve system, then the ibogaine induced dream-state can eradicate the continuous cycle that drive small psychosis patterns as well as propagate them further.
GDNF, which is endogenously released during ibogaine treatment has been found to play a major role in these areas. Neuropathic communications and signaling have a flexibility and many “hardwired” thought processes are liberated due to the cerebral superiority of the brain following significant doses of the ibogaine alkaloid.
