Kratom tea has been used to break the addiction to prescription opioids and heroin. Research is limited however personal testimonies are everywhere.
Oct. 26, 2017 — Eric Mayhew Jr. wanted to break his more than decade-long addiction to opioids — one that started when his doctor prescribed them for knee pain.
But he didn’t want to do an in-house treatment and tried to detox on his own.
Eric Mayhew Jr. used kratom to help break his opioid addiction.
Nothing worked, until 2 years ago when he tried kratom.
“What kratom does is kills your brain’s desire when you are addicted to opiates and you want opiates,” says Mayhew, 37. “It dulls your pain and you start to get your wits back again.”
This testimony is online and by understanding the pharmaceutical trend of lobbying the FDA to ban plants that Big Pharm wants to control, it is likely that the FDA will attack on their behalf. So, attain your own personal kratom tree now.
Personally, kratom tea relieves herniated disc pain in my neck along with arthritis pain and gives me a feeling of general wellness and I can work outdoors in the heat for longer periods without feeling drained. To avoid addiction, I do not drink kratom tea every day – everything in moderation.
There is a growing movement as awareness grows about kratom tea. People are drinking tea instead of using synthetic over the counter and prescription drugs. People suffering from devastating accidents and terminal illnesses drink kratom tea to avoid the mind-altering effects of morphine. Now that it is common knowledge that opiates are deadly, people want a natural alternative and kratom tea is the answer for many.
“Opiate addicts, who mainly abuse the mu-opioid agonist heroin, present a high incidence of depressive disorders that seem to contribute to the maintenance of the addictive state. Also, the treatment of chronic pain states frequently includes antidepressant therapy. Therefore, in addition to their potential analgesic activity, delta-agonists may be useful in improving emotional states and, more generally, may be considered in the future as an alternative therapy.”
“An average green leaf weighs about 1.7 g, and a dry leaf weighs about 0.43 g. Adkins et al listed 44 reported compound alkaloids that have been isolated from the M speciosa leaves. One of the alkaloids, mitragynine, is 13 times more powerful than morphine, and another, 7-hydroxymitragynine, is 4 times more powerful than mitragynine.
However, kratom leaves contain small amounts of mitragynine by weight, about 0.2%. Twenty leaves have approximately 17 mg of mitragynine. This alkaloid acts on the opioid mu- and delta-receptors in the brain. It also may stimulate postsynaptic α2-adrenergic receptors. Conversely, this alkaloid may block 5-HT2A receptors that can cause the stimulant effects.”
From fellow tea drinkers, I have learned the following:
For pain relief with a stimulant effect, use one kratom leaf when making tea.
For opioid addiction relief, begin with one leaf and increase as needed. It is advisable to keep a journal. When withdrawal from opioids is complete, gradually reduce concentration of leaves.
Kratom use has grown in popularity throughout the years. It has spread from southeast Asia to western Europe and the United States. One reason for its increase in popularity is a growing interest in using kratom as a nonaddictive, alternative treatment for opioid withdrawal or chronic pain.
“The available scientific evidence indicates that the kratom indole alkaloids mitragynine and 7‐hydroxymitragynine are not functionally identical to opioids; their molecular and pharmacodynamic mechanisms of action are distinctly different.”
Kratom is a natural herb that has been used for thousands of years. Here is a link with instruction on using kratom tea to overcome drug addiction: https://addictionresource.com/drugs/kratom/kratom-tea/
I will share more later. I need to make my morning tea.
Have a great day!
