Welcome

Root Medicine Podcast

At our core, all humans are affected by trauma—it’s what we do with that trauma that can reshape our lives. In Root Medicine, author and journalist Amanda Siebert is joined by psychedelic researchers, trauma and addiction specialists, practitioners, patients, and parents as they unpack their understanding of and experiences with ibogaine, a potent drug derived from the West African shrub, iboga. It may be best known for its ability to interrupt opiate addiction, but there’s more to it than that: ibogaine can help us get to the root of our trauma so we can truly heal. As mental healthcare is slowly reshaped by psychedelic medicines, join Siebert for powerful conversations that provide listeners with knowledge for their own healing journey, and practitioners with cutting-edge information on the safe and effective use of ibogaine for trauma and addiction.
