Iboga, An Ancient Treasure of the Earth

by Elizabeth Bast


Iboga is a plant medicine held sacred by the indigenous people of Central West Africa and has been taken in ceremonies since ancient times for spiritual initiation and healing.

Like Ayahuasca, San Pedro (Huachuma), Peyote, and Psilocybin mushrooms, it is a sacred visionary plant medicine, yet iboga is an utterly unique spirit. More recently, iboga and its active alkaloid ibogaine have been proven to have powerful addiction breaking effects in medical studies and observational research.

When my mother first read my memoir about our experience with iboga (she’s a cool mom, alright), she said, “I feel like I’ve taken iboga just from reading this book.” Not everyone needs to take iboga, for it is an extremely powerful visionary medicine. This journey is not to be taken lightly. Maybe reading the book is enough iboga for you. Maybe there is another kind of medicine for you, as contraindications must be considered, and there are many different kinds of mental, physical, and spiritual medicine on this planet to suit billions of radically different human beings.

Is iboga for you? Listen for the quiet call of the soul.
