I've never had any of these symptoms, as I've been using kratom for quite a while. To me those are symptoms of Prescription pain pills. The Doctor they had on probably prescribes thousands of horrible pills to his patients and feels the need to demonize kratom even though he has never tried it or probably knows nothing about the plant other than what he read somewhere. It really pissed me off when I watched it. It was really stupid. It's kind of like reefer madness for kratom.


Pharmaceutical companies trying to demonize this beautiful herb! I agree with you completely. :-bd

It was pretty hard to sit through, I couldn't watch the whole thing. I only watched the highlights they posted online and that was more than enough. :sick:

Thank you for showing support though! So many people watch Dr. Phil and I'm scared this putting a huge negative look on Kratom. I had to sit down and try to explain to my girlfriend what Kratom actually is and how beneficial it is to the human race. I'm even showing her everyone's replies so she doesn't think I'm crazy!

My girlfriend told me this morning, my "tea" was on Dr. Phil with some other weird tea she said. I naturally assumed it was Kava, because the media likes to kill two birds with one stone in their propaganda. :sick:

So I head on over to the video and site, and as thought. Nothing but negativity thrown towards this beautiful plant. They shouldn't even include Kava or Kratom in the video title, they ruined their own marriage. Not Kratom or Kava.

Video 1
Video 2

People are giving testimonies about how positive Kratom is in their life on the Dr. Phil message boards.
Message boards

Thought I share this with everyone! (L)
