CAN KRATOM HELP? ABSOLUTELY!
One of the most common reasons people seek out kratom is to manage pain and other medical symptoms from opiate withdrawl. Fatigue, anxiety, or depression aren’t far behind, therefore, if you are experiencing symptoms from opiate withdrawl you will find it helpful to read on. It has long been understood that kratom held promise for those suffering from addiction to opium and opiate-based medication. Thus, leading to opiate withdrawl. Christopher R. McCurdy, who is a faculty member at the University of Mississippi’s School of pharmacy, has been studying kratom’s use in breaking addiction and alleviating opiate withdrawal.
According to the self-published article in Addiction, he first tried a tea, and then later isolated the active compound in kratom: mitragynine. He reportedly found it superior to methadone when used to manage a patient’s opiate withdrawl.
“Mitragynine completely blocked all opiate withdrawal symptoms and could provide a remarkable step-down-like treatment for people addicted to hardcore narcotics such as morphine, oxycodone or heroin,” McCurdy said. “The compound has been known for years” he said. We just need to get the word out. Maybe we can help these folks who experience opiate withdrawl leave addiction in their past and turn their lives around.
Opiate Use in Thailand
Thailand is the perfect example. Workers in Thailand used to chew the leaves of the kratom tree in order to gain the stamina and energy they needed to get through the day (without opiates). Opiates were and continue to be very expensive and taxed heavily. Kratom was and continues to be much more affordable. Additionally, kratom wasn’t taxed by the Thai government. Thus the past ban on kratom in Thailand. (Since opiates were a great infusion to the tax base for the Thai government, they had to ban kratom which caused them to lose out on millions of dollars). However, the ban was lifted in 2013.
Also here’s some highlights from an excerpt from an article the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published:
“Opioids drive continued increase in drug OD deaths”, “Drug overdose deaths increase for 14th consecutive year”
Drug overdose deaths increased for the 14th consecutive year in 2013, according to an analysis from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The findings are published today in a research letter, “Pharmaceutical Overdose Deaths, United States, 2013,” in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).
