I suffer from chronic pain due to an injury, which has brought on additional symptoms of depression and anxiety. I used to be in excruciating pain on a daily basis. The only thing the doctors could do was prescribe strong pain and psychotropic medications with awful side effects. The pain relievers lowered my immune system and eventually did stopped working. I had nowhere to turn but to natural remedies. As I do when faced with many problems, I consulted the internet.
I soon found that there was a natural non-harmful herbal remedy to my symptoms. This remedy was Kratom. With Kratom therapy, I found that my pain, depression and anxiety symptoms were significantly reduced. I also found a product called "Pain Away" at a local natural store, which is a natural mixture of oils helpful as well. I still have to take significant amounts of Ibuprofen every day, but that is better than taking strong pain medicines. I also found that Pilates exercising enhances mood and strengthens core muscles, which can reduce pain. In addition, I have regular osteopathic manipulative medicine treatment (similar to chiropractic treatment). With all of these things, my quality of life has drastically improved.
If any one of these therapies is reduced, my quality of life significantly decreases (i.e. more pain, depression and anxiety). While I do not want to have to rely on these therapies to live a better life (I don't want to have to rely on anything), at the moment it seems like it is my only option. Additionally and realistically speaking, there are many things that one must do to keep peace of mind and body and thus I feel that it is not unreasonable to maintain my therapy regime.
This is related to this forum because Kratom therapy is as important as all of the other therapies I maintain. I have heard about, seen and read many disturbing things that have shed a negative light on Kratom and I do not want to see it banned in my country. I wholeheartedly support all efforts to keep Kratom legal and I believe this is going to require many people to ban together to make sure we do not loose a safe, therapy.
