Heroin addiction is blamed on human weakness and social problems and addicts are labeled as criminals. But it is now known that some humans suffer from a lack of natural opiates in the brain, which causes them to seek the illegal remedy of heroin. They are not really criminals; they just need medical supplements.
Unfortunately, our lack of awareness sees heroin only as a moral issue, so the long-term solution to addiction, like a DMT (dimethyltryptomine), or a morphine supplement taken daily, is not allowed in our society. I don’t mean methadone that is sometimes prescribed, as a heroin substitute after a person is addicted, but a supplement that is given those that have an on-going opiate deficiency in their system, before they become addicted.
It makes me sad because almost all our psychological pain is treatable and yet many of the treatments are forbidden to us.
It is known that that one drink of the African, tribal medicine ibogaine (see below), cures heroin addiction, as does the Brazilian ayahuasca (see below), except with ayahuasca you need about three drinks of about 100mLs over a period of a week or so. Why these remedies work is because both are high in DMT, which is stored in the pineal and dominates your moods. Westerners are massively depleted of DMT through fat-rich diets and stressful lifestyles, which is why depression is endemic in our society.
