Healing Post-Traumatic Stress

Post-Traumatic Stress Healing Retreats

Our specialist 2 Iboga/Ayahuasca Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Retreats are for soldiers, car accident victims, people who have experienced burglary or assault etc. These retreats allow people to heal events, the traumatic events, whether they happened to them as children or adults.

Traumatic events are events which are so overwhelming and inherently frightening that they cause transient (temporary), and in some cases, permanent changes to a person's physical and psychological responses to stress. They may also cause severe memory loss. Thus, after the trauma the person will always exhibit abnormal function (dysfunction) of one kind or another in their conscious mind state whilst the trauma continues to hide in the person's unconscious. These retreats are aimed at detoxing and healing the person at the unconscious level of their being, using La Madre Ayahuasca or Le Bois Sacre Iboga.

Conscious symptoms are normally produced in the following ways:

1. Re-experiencing the trauma: The person may relive their experience as terrible dreams or nightmares or as daytime flashbacks of the event. External cues in the environment may remind the patient of the event. The psychological distress of the exposure to trauma is reactivated (brought back) by internal thoughts, memories and even fantasies. Persistent avoidance, increased arousal and other physical reactions to stress, such as sweating and rapid heart rate.

2. Persistent Avoidance: Refers to the person's efforts to avoid trauma-related thoughts or feelings and activities or situations that may trigger memories of the trauma. The person may develop a diminished interest in activities that used to give pleasure, a detachment from other people, a restricted range of feelings, a sad affect that leads to the view that the future will be shortened.

3. Increased Arousal: Fight or flight feelings, sleep disturbances and other irritabilities or outbursts of anger. Difficulty concentrating, increased vigilance or exaggerated startled response when shocked.
