TORONTO, April 14, 2012 /CNW/ - A meeting will be held today at 2 p.m. by native elders to address the rampant Oxycontin addictions among the Mohawk of Toronto.
Julia Mikala has been asked to speak on the use of the natural root-bark Iboga to end addiction. Julia, along with her husband, Bwiti shaman Moughenda, operate a rapid detox center, Iboga House, in Costa Rica (www.ibogahouse.com).
The government-licensed clinic offers traditional healing with Iboga, which clinical trials have shown to be extremely effective at rapidly stopping drug withdrawals and ending craving. Patents are pending on extracts of Iboga including its use for neurodegenerative disease, drug addictions, depression, and PTSD.
"Having Mohawk lineage and growing up in Toronto, I can't stand by and see my family destroyed by addiction," Julia says. "With Iboga, craving and withdrawals can often stop within 24 hours. We are determined to help hundreds of people from the Mohawk Nation start over again in a matter of days."
The talk is open to the public and is located at Across Boundaries, 51 Clarkson Avenue, Toronto from 2 - 4 p.m.
