Ibogaine Therapy vs. Traditional Drug Rehab
Eric Taub once dreamed of a future day when society was free from addiction. Thanks to his somewhat unheard of ideas and his belief in his dream, Taub has quickly become a pioneer in the field of drug recovery.
Taub’s career began 20 years ago when he decided to bring the Iboga root back from Africa. At the time, Ibogaine was relatively unheard of; however, it has quickly become one of the top choices for drug and alcohol rehab. Taub is now celebrated as one of the most knowledgeable and experienced Ibogaine providers on the planet. He has even been labeled a revolutionary in medicine throughout Europe and the Americas.
Once Ibogaine was introduced to the Western hemisphere, Taub began working with psycho-therapists, chemists and doctors in order to develop a natural psycho-therapeutic therapy and addiction interruption treatment system. His technique has been adopted by many of the top addiction treatment facilities across the globe.
It should not go without saying that Taub does not keep his experience and his knowledge to himself. He has created his website, www.IBeginAgain.org, to serve as a source of public information on the medical effects of Ibogaine, and to reach as many people, as soon as possible, with information about the therapeutic and spiritual aspects of Ibogaine as well.
Thanks to his vision and to his desire for a profoundly transformative tool to aid in the cure for addiction, Taub has led many addicts back to a lifestyle that is free from addiction.
In 2001 Lex Kogan began his work in the field of detoxification and recovery using methadone protocols that were introduced to him by Eric Taub, pioneer of the Ibogaine treatment movement in America. It did not take long for Kogan to realize that there was a need to redefine the importance of increment dosing during opiate-addiction therapies. He began to develop a dosing system with the goal of prolonging the liberated state during the Ibogaine therapy. This dream-like state is one that allows the addict to be transported to a physically and psychologically pre-addicted state.
Under the supervision of doctors and nurses, Kogan’s approach takes the metabolic characteristics of the individual into consideration as he develops a customized response system where dose-timing modification directly corresponds with the compounding levels of active Ibogaine metabolites in the body. This system allows the patient to experience heavier nor-Iobgaine saturation in the opiate receptor sites.
Kogan made his name in the west for his development of the “Staircase Method” and “Low Wave Dosing” for CNS recovery and rejuvenation. He continues to use a dosing system as he documents and shares his research with medical facilitators and administrators in Latin America and in Europe.
