Celexa Detox with Iboga
Celexa (Citalopram) is an SSRI (Selective Serotonin Re-uptake Inhibitor) that is meant to improve clinical depression. We have had several people come to Iboga House to get off of Celexa without experiencing significant withdrawals. An added benefit of many who come to Iboga to get off of drugs such as SSRIs is that they end up dramatically overcoming their depression along with anxiety, low self esteem, negative beliefs, social and relationship issues, and unstable emotional mood swings that are often related to bipolar disorder.
Many people wonder how to get off of Celexa and properly detox because new studies show that SSRIs like Celexa can permanently alter your brain chemistry, growing more serotonin receptors in your brain cells which means you need more serotonin to feel “happy.” At Iboga House we believe depression is not a disease as the pharmaceutical company provides. We also do not call Iboga a cure for depression because there is still free will, and it is ultimately your choice.
However, with conditioning and imbalanced cellular receptor sites and dopamine and serotonin levels and receptor dynamics, it is extremely difficult to let go of emotions and negativity in a long-term fashion without sinking back in. The celexa detox program at Iboga House offers a 9-day program with two Iboga journeys.
The first Iboga journey is meant to detox you and reset your brain chemistry. During this time you may or may not see visions depending on how much you need to detox. This is because Iboga works in levels, first detoxing and resetting cellular receptor sites in your mind and body as well as clearing toxins such as mercury and candida which have been shown to be causes of lethargy, depression, bipolar disorder and even autism. The second journey allows for a deeper spiritual introspection where many have reported finding answers to the reasons why they are depressed or apathetic in life and even receiving collaborative exercises or tools to reach mental and spiritual freedom.
Studies show ibogaine, the main alkaloid of Iboga, to have powerful dopaminergic effects as well as boosting serotonin levels over the long-term. There are no long-term side effects yet known for Iboga treatment. Unfortunately this is not true for Celexa.
Side effects of Celexa may include the following: abdominal pain emotional agitation anxiety/stress diarrhea dizziness sleepiness dry mouth fatigue fever heartburn augmented sweating excessive yawning lowered appetite nausea pain during periods sexual problems shakiness/trembling sore throat stuffy or runny nose trouble sleeping & vomiting
