Thank you so much Nina for sharing your Heart Breaking Story. This is what Kratom is all about. How can someone read your Story & still want Kratom To Be Banned.:pinch:

You are just an Amazing Person for just being able to Survive through that Day to Day Life in Bosnia. Then you had to go through even more Torture with your Skin Condition. You are what Kratom is all about. You are a Fantastic Advocate for Kratom. I can't even Begin to Imagine what you Went through Nina. I'm So Sorry you had to go through all of that in your Young Life. Not many people can Imagine what you went through. Only others that had a Similar Life can really Understand how Bad it was. I'm so happy that Kratom has given your Life back. You are just Amazing Nina. Don't Forget That.

I love hearing other people's experiences. It helps ease my worry about taking the leaf and the potential for dependence. Logically I know that Kratom is now one of my medications, just like my thyroid medication. It has helped me decrease my nsaid use and cut back on Zoloft.

I also really appreciate when people on this board talk about their experiences with other herbs.

I Second That Laurie. Littlebear3 Posts are very Genuine. Don't worry about your Dependence on Kratom Littlebear3. I think of Kratom as a Food because it is All Natural. Everybody has to Eat everyday to Survive & most of us Just use Kratom Everyday just to Survive through our Physical & Mental Pain & Not to go get High On & Pass Out. With Kratom you can Live a Normal Life without being Clouded like you would with a Opioid. With Kratom Everybody is able to Function & Function better than they would if they were not on Kratom. All I have to say is Thank God for Kratom.

Amen to all that Marcus and Littlebear. :-bd :cheer:

I would rather be dependant on the leaf than any non natural med.

This is leaps and bounds better than when I was addicted to painkillers and alcohol.

I've actually had several KF days over the past 2 weeks because I didn't have a headache and the rest of my pains were tolerable. :cheer:

Having the other botanicals is also a big help. I used 1.5g of akuamma the other night due to high amount of arthritis pain caused by the weather changes. It knocked that pain out in less than an hour. Also knocked me out about an hour after that.:woohoo:

Don >:D

I have to say, the Hirsuta Only Thursday (HOT) made it clear to me that I am not dependent on kratom, physically. It doesn’t have as many analgesic alkaloids, but I still found it helpful and worthwhile without those alkaloids. I used akuamma and naproxen for after-eating pain, but kratom stops working for me while eating already.

My understanding is Hirsuta would still be legal if kratom were illegal. It looks the same, so importing would be confusing at the borders during inspections.

Marcus, didn’t you say that you also found Hirsuta enjoyable enough to make do?

I haven’t switched back to regular kratom yet. I’ll let y’all know how it affects my tolerance level sometime tomorrow.

I got the Hirsuta from Tea Time Botanicals.

Yes Laurie I Do Find Hirsuta to be the best Kratom Replacement & Javanica is the second best. I would say Kava is about the 3rd best.

Other Replacements to look at are Passion Flower, Berberine, Magnolia Root, Blue Lotus, Kanna, Skullcap, Rhodiola Rosea, Chuchuhuasi, Akuamma & Incarvillea Sinensis.

Thank you for the summary, Madmax Marcus!

I’m still using Hirsuta only today (with akuamma) and today I have noticeable “withdrawal symptoms” of missing kratom. Very minor chills/goosebumps off and on.

I tried using some stem n vein to see if it has enough of the alkaloids my body is missing today. That addition has not helped, but I am not having difficulty with going about my day. Very minor issue. I’m really GLAD I’m taking this break and these “withdrawal symptoms” are a good indication that my tolerance WILL BE LOWER when it’s time to switch back to kratom.

These symptoms are very mild/hardly noticeable.
