Interviewer: What about kind of the last six months since you discovered Ibogaine? Could you maybe tell your whole story related to Ibogaine? How it came to your life?
Aaron: Anyways, there’s been a huge drive in the Downtown, Lower Eastside to embrace, I guess, the drug addicts…the society’s “socio-prise”—whatever it is—to actually try and make concrete changes. Now on-site and in-site, we’re one of the places that’s been set up to help drug addicts use safely and anyways, that’s… I used quite a bit of extra drugs besides methadone there and that’s where I have to meet a woman that works there who has undergone the Ibogaine treatment. And I’d heard a little, tiny bit of this but it was basically out of reach. In the stories I hear, you have to go to another country and it was costing around $5,000 dollars. It was a huge expense that, as a residence of the Lower Eastside, that I could not proceed as possible. But she had, through various agencies, found or gotten access to Ibogaine and she came back and started to share her story. I mean, she didn’t have to talk. You could see the light and the energy and her whole being just so changed and energetic that it just drew me to her. I mean, it was rather inviting than the usual non-caring disposition of most addicts down here. But anyways, she informed me that now there’s a new company, Libertyroots, that’s been set up in Vanc—Whitewalk actually and these gentlemen were bringing Ibogaine healing to North America and up to Canada. They’re going to start in Downtown, Eastside program and they’re going to try and bring some relief to society’s…I mean people like me who had absolutely no money and whatever money I did have, it was automatically going to drugs. I couldn’t even feed myself. So anyways, I started having meeting with Libertyroots gentlemen who brought the message. And we spent about 10 to 12 weeks just getting to know each other, trying to I guess, get down to the basics of what was required to make this Ibogaine treatment work and what was needed for me and what they were offering. And everything, I just don’t know, seemed to manifest and to flow and to come together from doctors that were needed to help make this work to nurses that donated their time for a 12-hour…in beginning a 12-hour session of Ibogaine. And I started making changes in my life like finding a new place to live and started getting some new things, set up and place with the…help me with finishing the treatment, to stay on track, to stay on board because they stated to me that Ibogaine is not going to cure you magically. There’s inner work that needs to be done by the individual but I mean, with respect to this Ibogaine, it allowed me to almost reset my whole body and to go through with my opiate withdrawal within 24 to 48 hours and after that, not having to suffer this sluggish depression that always followed any kind of opiate withdrawal, right? I mean especially with methadone. I mean, it can last for months and months, right? So, taking this plant medicine and working with the Ibogaine providers, I mean, it was all a comprehensive package where they were dealing with every aspect and level of what it meant to be human and to get in touch with the power of my divine birth right or who I am as a man, right? But the plant medicine, after going through the session, it was such an incredible delight that removed such a huge stumbling block to opium withdrawal and allowing me not to have go through, say, like the depression. The physical, the mental and the emotional… that goes through with releasing the addiction like through my own experience, lasted for over 30 years. And so now, after the process, it took me about 2 to 3 days to start gaining my strength back and the Libertyroots Ibogaine providers also addressed other aspects and issues that I was dealing with like a little bit of depression, nutrition, I guess, resetting one’s thoughts and mind frames. I mean, it’s an all-inclusive package. I don’t know exactly how I can put it in any other ways but it has addressed me as a human being, as a man and I’m finally starting to feel like that I’m worth it, that I have all these…that I have a lot in me to offer. This plant medicine along with the whole Ibogaine set-up has so beautifully put it all into play, into work.
