Yellow Vietnam from COB MIGHT be helpful for pain relief and energy. Try exchanging your green out for that yellow. That’s my suggestion/what I’d do...please report back...

Good morning all! Ahhhh. You ladies of the ILK are looking lovely as ever! And my gentlemen friends? Muy, muy guapo! Y lo más noble si puedo ser tan audaz?

Thank you all for your kind reply's. I tried the Akuamma? It doesn't help. The sad truth my dear friends is this: I am currently fighting many battles on many fronts concerning my body. I think I'm going to quit the Ibuprofen and monthly Toradol and Dilaudid shots altogether. I get 3 days that are blissfully pain free. But the pain that follows is NOT worth it. I would much rather avoid the added agony of Renal failure.

Thank you all for befriending me. When I'm able to come here I fell that I am among family.

Be blessed,

Robie

Seems like many of us are still juggling some discomfort even WITH this fine tool we have. Since it’s also unpredictable at times, we all sympathize with a desire for more than 3 days per week without constant discomfort.

That ibuprofen is not as safe as kratom. Have you tried using turmeric for anti-inflammation? How about the other herbs like incarvillea sinensis and akuamma?

Keep up the good fight!
Laurie

robie,

from what ive researched you can take up to 4 g of akuamma. most like myself only take 2 or 3. that with Incarvillea together helps me on kratom free days. but everyones different. I sure hope you find comfort. we care about you!

I'd like to suggest researching Boswellia, Black Seed oil, and Ginger root/extract for help with pain and inflammation. They've all been around "forever", and the black seed oil and Ginger are both reputed to help with opioid and Kratom tolerance as well.

Powdered Boswellia and powdered Ginger root extract can both be had at affordable prices, while black seed oil is a bit pricey.

I've been using Bulk Supplements for both. The Boswellia is like talc, so you want to swallow it directly. I also toss and wash the Ginger root extract, though it makes for a fine addition to beverages, albeit it's strong.

After doing lots of comparison pricing and reading of reviews I settled on Kiva Organic Black Seed Oil as offering the best bang for the buck for me, especially it can be had with subscribe and save at Amazon.

Boswellia can also be had at decent prices in the tablet form. Ginger extract, or just plain Ginger root powder mixes well enough with water to make it quite nice as a drink, or in tea. It's strong though!

If your stomach and guts feel like they were abused by the ibuprofen then look into getting a bag of Glutamine (L-Glutamine) powder. Dr. Atkins was into that stuff, bigly. Very pleasant taste as far as supplements go, I easily toss and wash it by the half teaspoon full.

draxe.com/nutrition/l-glutamine-benefits-side-effects-dosage/

I'm too lazy to type out the section from Dr. Atkins book, but this gets the idea across.

1. Improves gastrointestinal health

L-glutamine benefits your health if you have any type of digestive issue, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), an inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, diverticulosis, diverticulitis, leaky gut or any of the issues associated with leaky gut (like joint pain, rosacea or any type of autoimmune response). Because it’s a vital nutrient for the intestines to rebuild and repair, you need this amino acid in your diet on a regular basis. (2)

It’s worth noting that the man famous for discovering the Krebs cycle in the body (also known as the “citric acid cycle“) was the first person to recommend taking L-glutamine for gut-related issues. That’s because Sir Hans Adolf Krebs — a German-born British biochemist who received (with Fritz Lipmann) the 1953 Nobel Prize for Physiology — found that it helped improve a healthy gut-related immune response. And additional research supports this finding.

A study published in the journal of Clinical Immunology found that L-glutamine normalizes the effects of the TH2 immune response that stimulates inflammatory cytokines. (3) The effects of L-glutamine in these studies show that it reduces intestinal inflammation and can help people recover from food sensitivities.
2. Helps leaky gut and ulcers

There are millions of people struggling with a condition called leaky gut syndrome, which is essentially the main cause of autoimmune disease today. Leaky gut can cause thyroid issues like Hashimoto’s disease; it also contributes to arthritis, skin issues like psoriasis and other serious health issues.

Because glutamine is the major fuel source for cells of the small intestine, it has been shown to heal leaky gut in clinical studies. A study published in the medical journal Lancet examined 20 hospital patients and found that supplementing with L-glutamine decreased intestinal permeability. (2) An animal study published in the British Journal of Surgery found that L-glutamine benefits ulcerative colitis and inflammatory bowel disease. (4)

It can also help heal ulcers by acting protection from further damage, plus offers a healthier, natural alternative to antibiotics for the treatment of stomach ulcers.


en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glutamine#Nutrition

In states where tissue is being built or repaired, like growth of babies, or healing from wounds or severe illness, glutamine becomes conditionally essential.
