About This Center

    Iboga is allowing participants to experience 

transformational healing, successfully overcoming depression, anxiety, PTSD, bi-polar disorder, eating disorders, trauma, addiction, and many other ailments. 

     This powerful bitter has the ability to detoxify the body, clear heavy metals and toxins, bring the PH into balance, facilitate recovery from disease, and assist in sustaining overall wellness. At Iboga Healing, we use the intact root bark of the plant, which contains all the alkaloids, rather than ibogaine, which is a man made derivative.  

     The Bwiti people teach us to use the Root of the Iboga plant to get to the Root of what is holding us back from living our lives to our full potential. 

 Iboga Healing is a Traditional Shamanic Iboga Center located in the Northern Pacific region of Costa Rica. Our staff are extensively trained, and have worked together treating hundreds of people. It is our passion to help others find happiness and connection through this plant medicine.
