In most cultures, the causes of addiction are unknown and are attributed rather to a “moral evil”, so that therapeutic models respond to that design and offer options ineffective causing great despair and frustration in addicted patients and relatives. It has been shown since 1962, effectiveness for the treatment of addiction to opioids and opiates (Heroin, Oxycodone, Morphine, Tramadol, Codeine, Buprenorphine, etc.) Finding made by Howard Lotsoft who suffered from chemical to heroin dependence and after ingestion root plant noted a surprising lack of desire for heroin and do not show acute withdrawal with which he started the titanic struggle to try that their observations were recognized by the scientific community. Years later was noticed that IBOGAINE was also very useful in treating other diseases such as addiction to the following:
HEROIN and OPIATES
Caffeine and others
To cause deep introspection states very useful in psychotherapy, qualities used by the Chilean psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo.

Symptoms of PTSD may disrupt your life and make it hard to continue with your daily activities. You may find it hard just to get through the day. There are four types of PTSD symptoms:
1. Reliving the event (also called re-experiencing symptoms): Memories of the traumatic event can come back at any time. You may feel the same fear and horror you did when the event took place. For example: You may have nightmares, you may feel like you are going through the event again. This is called a flashback. You may see, hear, or smell something that causes you to relive the event. This is called a trigger. News reports, seeing an accident, or hearing a car backfire are examples of triggers.
2. Avoiding situations that remind you of the event: You may try to avoid situations or people that trigger memories of the traumatic event. You may even avoid talking or thinking about the event. For example, You may avoid crowds, because they feel dangerous. You may avoid driving if you were in a car accident or if your military convoy was bombed. If you were in an earthquake, you may avoid watching movies about earthquakes. You may keep very busy or avoid seeking help because it keeps you from having to think or talk about the event.
3. Negative changes in beliefs and feelings: The way you think about yourself and others changes because of the trauma. This symptom has many aspects, including the following: You may not have positive or loving feelings toward other people and may stay away from relationships. You may forget about parts of the traumatic event or not be able to talk about them. You may think the world is completely dangerous, and no one can be trusted.
4. Feeling keyed up (also called hyper arousal): You may be jittery or always alert and on the lookout for danger. You might suddenly become angry or irritable. This is known as hyperarousal. For example, you may have a hard time sleeping, you may have trouble concentrating, you may be startled by a loud noise or surprise, and you might want to have your back to a wall in a restaurant or waiting room. IBOGAINE has shown to be highly effective to treat this condition according to our experience with several patients treated already.
