I am a 42 year old female, and I have a lot of health problems. I am an RN, however, I’m not currently working due to health issues. Over the past five years my health has continued to decline. I take multiple medications on a daily basis. I was introduced to Kratom about five months ago. I was skeptical like most. Since starting to use Kratom my life has improved. I have more energy, I rarely nap and my muscle pain has improved. It does not give me a jittery feeling like energy drinks do. I don’t crash, but I tire with activity. Kratom increases my energy and improves my muscle pain. I’m more alert and have improved concentration. Kratom has made a major improvement in my life.

I’ve used Kratom for seven years off and on to help manage depression and major fatigue. It has been such a blessing in my life; to not have to take addictive prescription drugs, which I had been on for the last 15 years. I was able to get off of them with the wonderful NATURAL Kratom. I have never once had any ill effects from Kratom! It has saved my life and my sanity in many ways!

After being on high doses of Morphine and OXY (my ending dose was 320mg per day plus anti-anxiety meds) for over 12 years, I was able to stop completely with the help of Kratom using small doses, 3-4 times a day. Sure, there was some suffering but having tried to stop before, it was MUCH easier with Kratom. Less painful and pretty much eliminated the feeling of “coming out of my skin.” I want to do everything possible to educate people about what I see as a miracle plant. My chronic pain is actually more manageable than it was, and other benefits have presented themselves as well; depression has lifted, better energy and IBS symptoms improved. I have also been on seizure meds for years to control Grande-Mals and even that has improved, although I wouldn’t recommend anyone else stopping seizure meds, as we each have different body chemistry. My personal experience with Kratom has been 100% positive, and I encourage everyone interested to increase their knowledge about it and to even try a bit before dismissing it altogether.

I’m 24 years old and have been addicted to opiates for six years. I’ve tried to get off of opiates with both methadone and suboxone and then found both to be even harder to get off then the actual opiates themselves. I was starting to feel pretty hopeless. I thought I would never be able to get through the withdrawals, until I came across Kratom. It’s been an absolute life saver. I have stopped injecting heroin and prescription pills and am still able to function and go to work. It’s not mind altering for me at all. It makes me feel normal and able to get through withdrawals. I can honestly say if it wasn’t for Kratom I would eventually end up dead because I can’t handle the withdrawals and I would never have been able to stop on my own.

I am 58, and I have suffered with migraine headaches since I was 36. An accident busting up my L2, L4 & T6 left me with a 2" splinter & bone spurs logged in between my discs. Three years later I was up to three, 10 mg Norco and 3 muscle relaxers a day. However, my system wanted even more in order to successfully relieve the pain, and I started running out. Quickly realizing I was “hooked” on prescription meds, my life was on the bottom of a spiral. I was immobilized, three sleepless night in a row and nauseously aching/shaking all over as I researched for immediate help. It was then that I legally purchased Kratom for the first time. I was normalized two hours later with a clear head/thinking and at a pain-free level that I had not had in years! Within three days I was past the narcotic withdrawal symptoms from the Norco and able to accomplish daily tasks.

I first discovered Kratom in August 2015. I had never heard of it before. I learned of it while researching herbal medicines online to help with my chronic pain. I am 32, a self-employed computer tech, married & have no kids. I take no other drugs except for when I have my prescribed meds from my doctor for my chronic pain & general meds like Tylenol, etc. I had injured both my knees in my early adulthood while serving in the military & then on a private sector job. I have lower back issues & overall, I have to live with pain without something to alleviate it. I have been on pain meds on and off for the last several years. Although they work, it is not always easy getting the doctor to write a new script. The side effects of them are also more negative, if only for a short time, as opposed to Kratom. So I found Kratom. I doubted it at first but after a couple of times, I found that it really helped me live better. My quality of life has greatly improved. So in conclusion, I stand for Kratom and any other plants that help us. Nobody has ever died from Kratom alone & nobody has been hurt by it.

I am a 35 year old Paralegal and mother of 3 kids. I have actively taken Kratom for over 2 years now. I had a full hysterectomy when I was 28 which put me into early menopause and it seemed from there depression set in. Juggling 3 kids and a full time job all the while going through menopause was a living hell. Doctor’s had prescribed anti-depressants which either never worked or made me a complete zombie. Then, I discovered Kratom, and I thought why not. I’ll give it a try. It keeps me balanced and rational, and it’s also very effective when it comes to aches and pain. It has changed my life tremendously.

I am a 55 year old female who has Fibre/C.F.I.D.S./M.E./multiple chronic back painI’m on disability, have researched everything out there for pain and tried prescriptions, herbal and OTC meds. In 2015 I found Kratom capsules. It really works and has not only reduced my pain to only a small, tolerable amount, but has given me energy, helps me sleep, took away my mood swings, made me relaxed, laugh and enjoy life again. I have no side effects. I look forward to life now.

I first heard of Kratom about 2 years ago from my hair dresser who recommended it to me to replace pharmaceutical medicines, such as pain killers, both over and under the counter. I tried it and quickly understood the power of this plant. It’s changed my life in the most positive way, physically and mentally. I’ve met several people who have cured their heroin addiction with Kratom and many others who use it for pain or as an alternative to ADHD medicines. Nature cures all!
