Beyond 2000 on the Discovery Channel will be showing a segment on
IBOGAINE, an experimental medication now being evaluated for its use to
treat heroin and cocaine addiction. Ibogaine was originally discovered in
the rain forests of West Africa and has been used in traditional medicine
and religion for centuries. Gollnhofer and Sillans have portions of
their work translated from the French in the Gotarel paper on the Ibogaine
web page and James W. Fernandez, an excellent ethnographer who has
published in English on the Bwiti religion that used Ibogaine containing
plants in West African religion will soon have representative samples of
his work on the page. Probably within the month.

The Ibogaine television segment will be shown on Friday, September 6th at
7:00 PM on BEYOND 2000 on the DISCOVERY CHANNEL.

Information on Ibogaine's history, pharmacology, chemistry, ethnography,
treatment referral and human studies can be accessed at web page
