Dr. Martin Polanco is the founder and CEO of Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center. Dr. Polanco first witnessed the healing power of Ibogaine within his own family. After years of debilitating substance abuse and unsuccessful stints in rehab, it wasn’t until his relative underwent Ibogaine detox–then a very novel, underground treatment–that the addiction ended for good.
The transformation was so immediate and profound that Dr. Martin Polanco, a graduate of Universidad La Salle Medical School who was at the time was doing his residency in ophthalmology, decided to change course and focus entirely on Ibogaine. In 2001, he opened a clinic called the Ibogaine Association, where as medical director he personally supervised hundreds of Ibogaine treatments. A pioneer in the field, he also served as a consultant to Ibogaine clinics in Canada, Colombia, and Russia. In 2011, he founded Crossroads Treatment Center, and set out to provide the safest, most medically-sound Ibogaine detox available anywhere in the world. Dr. Polanco’s mission now is to have Crossroads’ model of best practices in clinical efficacy act as a guiding beacon in the efforts to legalize Ibogaine therapy in the United States.
The standard of care provided to veterans and active duty military members suffering from PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries is based on the idea of throwing pharmaceuticals at the issue. Many veterans who suffer from these ailments are on a dozen medications or more. Traditionally, Doctors look at PTSD and TBI as separate issues. PTSD is supposedly a reaction to traumatic events, and TBI is a result of concussion or a traumatic brain event.
Dr. Mark Gordon is an interventional endocrinologist who's dedicated much of his life to studying traumatic brain injury. Dr. Gordon has worked with thousands of cases of TBI, and through his work he's found that both PTSD and TBI may have a common source in chronic inflammation. The problem is that none of the current standard treatments for these issues actually treat inflammation.
Through the Warrior Angels Foundation, Doctor Gordon has helped hundreds of veterans eliminate the symptoms of TBI and PTSD altogether without standard pharmaceuticals by using nutrients and hormone replenishment. Doctor Gordon and Warrior Soul Podcast cohost Andrew Marr have made it their mission, through the Warrior Angels Foundation to make these treatments available to all veterans by bring them to the attention of the powers that be.
