DM Testimony (Barcelona)

There are truly no words on earth to describe how ibogaine, Cathy and her amazing family and program changed my life. There for I do not really know how to start this. So I’ll just jump right in…

Sometime in early spring of 2016 I was living in San Francisco California. We all know it is an extremely expensive place to live, so to make ends meet I worked many jobs, thus burning myself out so to speak. One of my gigs at the time was managing a popular nightclub in the evenings, so drugs were all around me.

When I felt it was too much, I fell onto heroin and fentayl, and hard. I had previously had several years clean prior to this. Once I literally realized I was going to die as many actually did all around me I panicked.

Luckily, I knew of ibogaine from my past, the first time I ever had an opiate problem. The problem was back then the only ibogaine treatment centres I could find were all in Mexico and central American countries.

Due to bureaucracy these clinics tend to be a little shady so in order to find a trustworthy place you must spend thousands… Put it this way. My trip to Valencia Spain from San Francisco California plus full detox treatment was literally a fraction of the price.

If you truly want to put behind all your addictions, move on past a defibrillating ailment in your life, I can’t not recommend ibogaine hci treatment enough to you in words.

If not for Cathy, Bilal, family and this treatment you wouldn’t be reading this, for I would of been dead a few years ago by now. Real talk.

Now I’m happily married living in Barcelona working on my true passions in life, all the ones i lost touch with due to drugs.

I personally vouch on behalf of this treatment and family working behind it 110%.

Cathy picked me up for the airport, catered to my nutritional needs as a 20 plus year vegan *best chickpea masala of all time btw!’ I couldn’t of asked for any more.

Frank Coulan Testimonial (France)

Hello I have 27, for more than 10 years I was addicted to morphine and especially the last two years I was falling into the abyss of this drug I had used more than 500mg a day, I lost my marriage and my child and I was attending an center addiction but they no offer alternatives except methadone or another synthetic opiate, until the day I started to search on the net and I am to fall on the site of Catherine and Bilal, so I started to read the positive comments and after a few weeks I decided to have passed the course I send a message to Catherine explaining my problem and she has very quickly answered by explaining the progress and she reassured me a lot.

1 week later I arrived at home Bilal, her husband came to pick me up at the airport, to be honest with you I was very skeptical about the outcome of this detox and I did not really think it could help, well I was wrong, it was a very hard test but Catherine and Bilal are very professional and they knew their job well, the environment is very favourable for a cure, I advise anyone who if you believe in taking plant medicine, you will have a very close family and people who have their hands on their hearts, something that is rare nowadays.

Kolya Iboga Testimonial (UK)

Why you should choose Harambe Ibogaine Detox Centre?
I fully recommend the ibogaine experience with Bilal and Cathy. I had a preconception that they might be two crazy hippies who would encourage me to talk to trees and denounce myself as an animal murderer, but they are just two lovely, knowledgeable and down-to-earth people. As soon as I arrived and got chatting to them and their kids, I felt relaxed and I really enjoyed getting to know the whole family over the course of five days. They also have the loveliest and most well-trained (Ridgeback) dog: Jamma.

They live in a beautiful part of the world and after I recovered from the Ibogaine experience, I spent my time either lying in a hammock in their botanical conservatory, sunbathing on the roof or walking with the dog through the orange groves and eating delicious oranges. By the end of my stay, I felt fully recharged and ready to face the world again.

I fully recommend Cathy, Bilal and this setting over staying in a clinic. They have all the relevant knowledge to ensure you have the experience you need, and probably twice the compassion (compared to clinic doctors).

How was my ibogaine experience?
Cathy picked me up from the airport and took me to their house; when I arrived, Bilal gave me a drink which cleared out my system. Then I just relaxed on my bed and watched films on my laptop and went to sleep. The next morning Bilal gave me the first ibogaine capsule, then another an hour later but nothing was happening. However, I lay there a little longer and I started to enjoy the shard of light coming through the blind turning into a hallucination of a beach. This was just the beginning. Throughout the following few hours as things got more intense, Bilal and Cathy both made regular checks on me without disturbing me (which was perfect). The whole time I was also fully aware of who I was and where I was; I even tried to test myself with thinking of scary stuff and it was fine because I knew that I was in control. As others have said, you do get more sensitive to noise. I would recommend bringing ear plugs because you are in a house and there naturally will be some noise, but for me it wasn’t really a bother.

I cannot really recall any of the visions I had. They were not linked in any emotionally relevant way to me, nor did they show me anything revelatory. However, I was able to think deeply about who I was as a person, the things I said to people and why I said them. It was like, for the first time, I was able to think without all the other opinions and influences from outside casting doubt on the truthfulness of my thoughts and beliefs. I discovered some stuff that really struck on a visceral level, and this was stuff I had already known on an intellectual level but it had never penetrated to motivate active change.

This stuff was mainly my need for attention and focus on myself. I kept remembering snippets of conversations I had had over the past few months and all of them were showing me that the stuff I was saying was designed to draw attention to me (both positive and negative), and the focus was always on how I was presenting myself to the world. The ibogaine also revealed a false self I had developed to mask a fragile ego. This false self was opinionated, controversial and somewhat obnoxious.

After a few hours, the ibogaine began to subside in strength. This is the hardest part because you lay there with your thoughts for the next 24-48 hours and it is really really boring. However, it is vital because you can still think in a creative way and it helps cement and clarify new insights. The next morning after the experience, Bilal brought me fruit, granola and yoghurt (after no food for about 40 hours). I was sooo happy and I definitely felt Stockholm syndrome towards him J.

How do I feel now (3 weeks later)?
In some ways I am not much different. My personality has not changed drastically. I still drink more than I should and I love meat just as much as before. However, I feel like I scraped out a negative and false feeling inside myself. I feel calmer and more compassionate towards my friends and family, and I also feel this more towards myself. I can see aspects of myself that I really like more clearly and I feel less attached and ashamed of my negative traits. It’s like I’ve detached the negative traits from my identity and now they just live in my mind, ready to be slowly destroyed (no rush). Finally, I feel motivated to make active changes towards self-improvement in the form of therapy.

Final advice?
Don’t be afraid to undertake this experience. It will give you what you need.
