Kratom For Pain (and other things)

What is Kratom?

It is a Southeast Asian native tree(Mitragyna speciosa). *Oddly enough it is in the same family as coffee. sIt's a natural analgesic which has been used for hundreds of years to safely alleviate pain, combat fatigue and help with the effects of anxiety and depression.
The leaves of the tree have been used in  low doses (as a stimulant) or high doses (as a sedative). It has been used to treat pain, diarrhea, arthritis, fibromyalgia, treatment for opiate addiction and much more.

How can you take it
You can remove the central vein and chew on it (not recommended). This is mainly done in its native region. Dried leaves can be powdered or crushed to make it easier to swallow. 

The powder can be mixed with water or other liquids. It is quite bitter so fair warning. One site recommends making a chocolate  milkshake to get it down the in the best tasting way possible.

 You can mix it (powder) with applesauce, ice cream or yogurt .

You can have it put into capsules. 

Small drops of the extract can be dissolved in hot water as tea, or mix the tea with the regular tea you drink. 

When mixing coffee with it you can use milk, cream, sugar or honey to manage the bitter taste. 

There are different strains for different effects. It has been banned in some states and in jeopardy in others. You can check the internet for a list, there is quite a bit of info anywhere you look. Make sure you fact check! 

Malaysian strains, especially green malaysian varieties, tend to be effective for  pain relief and can be less sedating than Indo, Borneo and Bali strains. Because of this, these strains can be great for anyone who would not like to experience a drop in their energy levels. If you do not want to experiment  or do a lot of research thats involved in trying different strains for reasons of time, confusion or cost,  red vein kratom tends to be overall better for pain relief than other strains.

"In an online survey of 6,150 kratom consumers by Pain News Network and the American Kratom Association, nine out of ten said the herb was a “very effective” treatment for pain, depression, anxiety, insomnia, opioid addiction and alcoholism."

So what does this mean for us that suffer chronic pain? Well more reading, homework and guesstimatingThere are many "natural" drug free remedies out there. You only need to look on face book, twitter, blogs and support groups. just do a google search and behold the plethora of options!!

 There are products, pills, plans, books, vitamins, shakes, diet plans....This is another in a long list of things you may say why not try.  Why not. Its less than other things, its a plant. But remember, PLEASE ALWAYS consult your doctor as there are always risks of side effects or interactions.

  5. Kratom is a mysterious and magical herb with psychoactive consequences. Certain effects can differ from stimulation to relaxation depending on the person as well as the strain. kratom used as an anti-depressant as it can have euphoric and mood enhance qualities. Effect of kratom is depend on amount of dosage taken by individual. Even I take kratom to maintain my sugar level as I suffering from daibetes. Rather side effects of Kratom are relatively mild and are never serious. These typically include loss of appetite, upset stomach, mild headache, increased thirst, and drowsiness. Look at the amount of people taking it in high doses and the lack of serious repercussions.For more information: Kratom

  8. Kratom is not an opioid. Instead it is used to get people off of opioids. I have been using it since past two years for chronic pain with no side effects experienced. Research shows that the alkaloids found in the kratom leaves are able to help regulate the amount of insulin and glucose in the blood, effectively preventing the dangerous peaks and troughs that diabetics face. It is natural stimulant utilized for improving physical performance. For details visit Kratom

  14. Kratom is non-habit forming, unless taken in extremely high doses for extended periods of time. If taken in excess, continuously over long periods of time, Kratom consumers may experience dependence, similar to caffeine dependence. There can also be some discomfort if taken daily and use is abruptly discontinued. This can be avoided by taking regular breaks and/or gradually tapering down consumption levels.For more information. kratom
