Kratom: The Opioid Killer
I was injured three years ago and it is a permanent injury. No amount of denervation (nerve blocking) takes it all away. I am left with the need to take low doses of codeine on a daily basis and even then with exercise and diet I still have pain. I started looking for natural means and found KRATOM.
It works great with codeine I started about a year ago. but then I found I started to need more and more codeine. than my test every three months were coming back negative. and then the last of the 5 last 7 test all came back negative so my Doctor dropped me like a hot potato and said they cannot give me any more codeine forever. Not to mention this is permanent on my medical record.
The problem is I have been taking my medication every day and do not understand why there was not trace of any type of opioid in my system. I was totally shocked. So I started researching why there was no codeine in my urine.. First I started reading JAMA and Other medical journals and Pain Management Magazines and I found an article on large amounts of alkaloids in a person degenerates opioids to the point of them being below the threshold of detection. That had to be it.
the key ingredient in Kratom is Mitragyna speciosa which is an alkaloid that attaches itself tot he pain or opioid receptors of the brain just as codeine does. I was using three tablespoons a day in 6 cups of water in three 2 cup doses. As the Kratom built up in my body it started to break down the codeine in my body as soon as I took my codeine it would begin to break it down. Which would account for it not doing its job and my needing more and more of it.
If I am able to get another Doctor to help me by giving me my pain meds I am not taking Kratom again because it is a opoiod killer.
It may be great for withdrawal symptoms but not so great when it comes to your quarterly testing. If you have a painful condition and need Opioids to maintain severe pain as I do stay away from Kratom. But if your pain is mild them by all means use Kratom it works. KrakenKratom.com has some of the purest and best kratom I have bought online.
