Shawn Ryan, Navy Seal:
An Ibogaine Healing Story

There is growing evidence that Ibogaine is able to help people with traumatic brain injuries, addiction and mental illness.

Shawn Ryan, Navy Seal (former) and growing podcast sensation, embarks on a personal journey with Ibogaine, guided by Ambio.

Each experience with this cutting-edge molecule is unique.

Shawn reflects on his life-changing psychedelic voyage in conversation with Ambio’s co-founder, Trevor Millar, the man who helped him down the rabbit hole. Their dialogue delves into Trevor’s personal odyssey of facilitating healing experiences, the opioid catastrophe, the pharmaceutical industry’s influence, and alternative healing paths for the deep-seated societal unrest we often encounter.
