The moment I spoke with Garyth over the phone for the first time I immediately felt at ease to move forward with ibogaine treatment. From arriving at the airport and being greeted with open arms by Garyth, to the daily nourishment and comfort provided by Blair nurturing me through this life changing process, I was able to achieve a state of calm throughout the medicine treatment.

Garyth’s  approach to the medicine comes from a genuine place of empathy and compassion for each client. I couldn’t believe how personalized the care was and how it was around the clock.  If you felt uncomfortable, if you were awake, if you were hungry, if you needed to talk, they were there to facilitate.

Each treatment protocol is personalized to each client with individual scheduled activities.  Throughout the ibogaine treatment I ate a menu that Blair created with my dietary requirements and the food was another form of healing medicine- so healthy and delicious, I truly felt my body recalibrating. From cold pressed juices to plant based meals and snacks, I was able to eat to for my mind, body and soul.  Garyth organized hikes, swimming and saunas as part of the treatment. Blair took me to Reiki, message and on days off medicine, showed me neighbourhoods in Vancouver and places of interest to me.

Although when meeting Blair and Garyth they were strangers, I never had any fear.  To be honest I didn’t know what to expect and because of their approach to ibogaine treatment, it ending up being one of the most profound, healing and best times in my life.

Although extremely difficult to process at times, they held space for me in a way that allowed true healing to begin.  Never have I encountered two human beings who work so tirelessly to help individuals through the toughest time in their life, by providing a level of care that reflects dignity, compassion and respect. They provide the space, time and facilitate the medicine to give you the opportunity to take the steps to change your life for the better.

For me the medicine has been the catalyst to create the life I want and achieve the things in my life I knew I was capable of, but in the past wasn’t able to because of my addictions. Not only has my life changed forever, I am the happiest I have ever been and have the tools to continue to do the work necessary to live the life I have alway wanted.

Ibogaine can be a pivotal moment to clear the space and prioritize your recovery.  It requires a level of commitment to the process and the focus to learn about yourself in ways you may have numbed or blocked in the past.  It brings an awareness to the surface that allows you to shine light in the areas of your life that may have been uncomfortable to process, but that light leads you on a path out of the darkness.  Garyth and Blair are the light workers.

My experience during my Ibogaine treatment was exceptional and well coordinated. I was made to feel extremely comfortable so my transition into the introspective world of Ibogaine was smooth. Any question was answered and every need was met with compassion and love.

My psycho spiritual and addiction healing journey was worth every penny since I no longer crave like I used to, with a black hole to feed every single day. Freedom is something everybody needs from their demons and this was the catalyst in my case.

InnerRealms facilitated a great transformation in my life. When I was at my very worst, they helped me turn my life around.

With the help of Garyth’s knowledge of the medicine and life time of experience, along with Blair’s incredible ability to relate to others in a kind and nurturing way, I was able to change internally, on a deep level.

Opiates had been a problem for me my entire adult life. From age 19 to age 37, on and off for 18 years, but mainly on. I had never been clean for longer than 12 months. I had tried many different methods of quitting from going cold turkey on my own, detox, methadone, 12 steps, moving to different cities and even Rapid Opiate Detox surgery

I came to Inner Realms with an addiction to grams of pure heroin a day habit for many years. I was nervous at first but right from the second I arrived, I knew I was in great hands. I was even given medication right away so I could stay comfortable the whole time.

Garyth and Blair are both extremely knowledgeable and caring, and they saved my life.

When I found out about ibogaine and the use of it became very urgent for me to get into center as soon as possible.

I talked to 2 other ibogaine providers before Garyth. None of them felt my urgency as much as he did.

And I was on the flight to Vancouver from New York with a heavy and obsessive heroin addiction.

When I first decided to seek Ibogaine treatment, a friend of mine who had been through treatment herself had just 3 words for me: “Get to Garyth.”

She told me that he was really the best provider around, and my experience in treatment showed me the value of her advice.

Inner Realms is a small, client-centric Ibogaine center run by Garyth and Blair. Over the course of several weeks, they weaned me slowly off a 10+ year methadone addiction and provided the kindest, most loving care and treatment.

They were attentive to my every physical, spiritual, psychosocial and emotional need, and made me feel both safe and welcome at Inner Realms.
