As the Decriminalize Nature movement spreads like wildfire across over 100 U.S. cities liberating entheogenic (psychedelic) earth medicines (on the local level only), there are many more people becoming interested in iboga & it's active alkaloid, ibogaine, the holy root from Africa that has been utilized for psycho-spiritual healing since ancient times and for its significant addiction disruption potential discovered in the 1960's.
Iboga & Ibogaine are highly medically sensitive medicines, requiring specialized knowledge for medical screening and support. In the Western world, we encounter many medical considerations and contraindications that its communities of origin do not. Our society will need many more medical professionals who are knowledgeable about this powerful medicine.

YOU WILL LEARN:
- Medical & psychiatric screening protocols
