I first heard about Ibogaine 3 years ago, and like most people, I was pretty terrified about trying a somewhat unknown plant medicine over regular rehab.Truthfully, I had been caught in cocaine addiction for about 15 years. After covid happened,  things just got increasingly worse and that coupled with a very stressful job which had me stress eating, drinking, smoking 20 cigs a day and then using cocaine, was a recipe for disaster. After the year I had, and after seeing the success of one family member with regular rehab and then the relapse of another friend with regular rehab, I decided to choose Ibogaine as a treatment route for myself at Magalies Wellness Centre.

It’s been 3 weeks since my treatment and I have to say it is the best and greatest gift or investment I have ever given myself. I feel like a new human being, completely reset back to zero. I have no pangs for any of my past addictions and every single day, I am finding new ways to live my life. It genuinely is a beautiful thing.

The team at Magalies Wellness Centre are incredible and very much part of the amazing week-long experience and I will be eternally grateful to each of them. The constellation of star-studded soul workers are led by the inimitable Martie Underwood –  I now imagine them to all be superheroes in their own way.

For anyone struggling with addiction, or trauma please take the leap. I finally feel like the version of myself I have dreamt of being for so many years and most importantly I feel free from my past. All the reasons I was using addiction to deal with life have become a story from an old life. A story that has no sway over my current self and I’m now free to fix damaged relationships, and forge new ones, especially with myself.

It is the most freeing feeling I have had in many decades.Do the work. Go deep and face yourself. It is so worth it and you will never regret this decision.
