Special Forces: How Ibogaine is Helping Former Special Operations Soldiers with Traumatic Brain Injury and PTSD
In this continuation of our first conversation with Marcus and Amber Capone of VETS, we discuss ways that traumatic brain injury (TBI) can overlap and complicate post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and how the psychedelic root bark iboga and its derivative ibogaine can treat both disorders.
Veteran Navy SEAL Advocates for Psychedelic Assisted Therapy: Interview with Marcus and Amber Capone of VETS
Marcus Capone is a former Navy SEAL who, like many of his teammates completed multiple combat deployments overseas.
When we sat down to speak with Marcus and Amber Capone, founders of VETS Inc., a book came to mind–The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien. It tells the tale of the author’s experience going through the Vietnam War and coming home. Transcendent, wrought with beautifully and brutally poetic renderings of war, the book blurs the line between fiction and non-fiction in O’Brien’s pursuit to answer this question: how do you tell a true war story? His imaginative, mythological meditation on war is a testament to the redemptive power of storytelling. Marcus and Amber’s moving journey reflects its transformative power.
