Your Hosts, Romy & Kevin
Philosophically, both Romy and Kevin are strong believers in the health and psychological benefits of plant medicine.
Romy’s world was turned upside down when her son fell victim to heroin addiction. On a day to day basis, Romy did not know if her son would live or die. Life changed after discovering Ibogaine treatment, Romy had her son “back”. He was responsive, physically active, and talking about the future – not worrying about where his next fix would come from. It was at that time she first thought about how she could make the treatment more easily available for addicts and their families but the timing was bad. Fast forward a few years to Romy and Kevin meeting and talking about ways they could help, support, educate, and enlighten while operating a non-traditional business. Ibogaine was the obvious answer and now the timing was right.
After two years of careful planning and prepping they have created a business that will save and restore lives that are damaged by drug addiction. Their goal is to make Ibogaine treatment accessible and available to regular people who have fallen victim to the Opioid crisis. Romy and Kevin actively support the communities in Arizona and Sonora. They are regular people who genuinely are interested in helping others live addiction free lives.
