I feel great empathy for those taking care of their mother. It can be a very hard task. I'm remembering my own beloved mother. It's almost like taking care of a very large child going through their "terrible two's". The ever expanding NO in their vocabulary. It's very frustrating. I truly hope all is getting better for you.

I logged on today and saw this dosage thread. I'm open to all suggestions on improving the efficacy of the Kratom. I will not consider concentrates. I'd much rather stay with the leaf in it's most basic form. That being said. I'm very open to all suggestions for improving the pain relieving properties of Kratom. I use turmeric. I even have a capsule press thingy and use turmeric and pepper. I take my kratom with a little lemon juice. But I still have to take 4 to 6 advil a day to control my pain. I don't like doing that. It's hard on my kidney's and I can definitely feel it being hard on my kidney's.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day. It's always nice to see everyone.

Be blessed in all things,

Robie


Incarvillea Sinensis, Corydalis, Berberine & Akuamma Seeds are all good for Pain. Also Black Seed Oil Extract seems to be a Pain Reliever as well as a Potentiator. Incarvillea Sinensis is the Best Pain Reliever in my Book.

my husband and I are getting into food grade essential oils more. that's one of the first ones I bought as an 'investment' with lemongrass and a couple others in concentrated form. it tastes awful ( but I remember your super power lol ) but a few ill use in cooking. that one I do not. a few ive been changing it up and add to my k shot. like tomorrow am I have WMDJK, gold hulu, and a touch of RMD. a touch of turmeric, oregano oil, lemongrass oil and grapefruit. they have ginger and turmeric too but theyre expensive so it will wait a couple months. already have peppermint and body rub stuff coming hehe

Boswellia Serrata - Indian frankinsence-
I have seriously been considering this one.
I like the fact it has 5 days and not two to three weeks kick in time.
www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/326067.php?fbcli...lQv8qONpLhtASk_RW2pc scroll down to number six.

Good morning- off to do the weekend catch up chores.(c)

Ohhh yeahhhh!

Probably the best suggestion YET! I simply don’t have any experience with that one (yet), but I agree with the suggestion.

That ibuprofen has been nasty to me the past couple of days and that’s from one 600mg pill per dose, once or twice a day. Naproxen (Aleve) is not as hard on me, but not as effective.

Nan70 probably has more suggestions for anti inflammatory LIFESTYLE!

Robie wrote: I have not tried those Laurie. But I'm dadgum more than willing to give it a go. It's hard to sleep with the pain. And forget taking Advil 6 hours before bed. It messes with my sleep also. I have lucid nightmares on top of the pain dreams. I'm sure you're familiar with the pain dreams. Does Rob sell those herbs? I need something and fast. I need sleep. I love dreaming but not the horror shows of my dreamscapes as of late. I am very open to suggestions. I'm literally wasting away. Before this last horsepital debacle I weighed 132 lbs, it took me 3 years to get up to that weight after 2012, and now I'm down to 120 lbs because of the antibiotics and the sleeplessness.

I'm sure your mother is going to be very happy with all you are doing for the home. What a sweet, dear soul you are. I hope you feel better and try not to over do it? We humans tend to be our own worst enemy in that regard. I can get in trouble that way and have!

Be blessed Laurie and thank you!

GOSH Robie...I sure hope you are taking probiotics after those antibiotics. Good bacteria in your gut is ESSENTIAL for health.

For anti-inflammatory try Boswellia Serrata - Indian frankinsence. I have to take quite a bit to get results, but I found that it calmed things down quite a lot and I was able to move better.

Homeopathic Coffea might be good for helping with sleep - but maybe try one thing at a time?

I take prescription diclofenic for inflamation in my back. It does a lot more than ibuprophen

Had back problems since my early twenties and been on them all, I agree with you on diclofenic but they barely prescribe this one they tend to go to prescription ibuprofen, or naproxen(alleve for over the counter peeps) sometimes Mobic (meloxicam). The best results I ever had from a prescription NSAID was Bextra which was pulled off the market by the F D A

How far are we now off topic....?

I tried replacing NSAIDs with incarvillea and akuamma yesterday and I concluded that akuamma was the closest thing to helpful, but it’s impossible for akuamma to entirely replace ibuprofen, etc. I used it with naproxen and had good results. Do you also have problems with naproxen? Sometimes just ROTATING these things can really help relieve the STRESS of using one med repeatedly.

So glad I got a lot done yesterday because I’ve been stuck today. (Praying with gratitude)

Y’all hang in there. Thanks for the cool tune, Nan70! I can NEVER get too much Zeppelin!

I take prescription diclofenic for inflamation in my back. It does a lot more than ibuprophen. It is still an nsaid, so it has some of the same warnings.
It comes in a cream that I also use. I have a friend who swears by the cream because she doesn't want to take the pills. She uses the cream for localized pain in her hands and knees. The brand name is Voltaren.

Since using Kratom I have cut down my dosage some. But if I go a couple days without I have serious back issues.

and Epsom salt baths very under rated.
Good Morning!
just adding more to the growing list
Electrolytes are also often over looked. Kratom is fairly dehydrating and so is the summer heat.

Auto immune issues are too pesky. My daughter has lupus and agrees needs to get off treating it with NSAIDs. We are looking into gut health solutions. Easier said than done young busy lady with fatigue and pain issues by the end of the day you have to look forward to putting in the effort. She will get there.

I have a post about tendinitis www.ilovekratom.com/forum/health-and-wellness/8282...is-of-the-knee#42191

We talked about taking Glocosamine Sulfate versus SAM-e.

sometimes when the pain is not managed by the pain herbals or even the pharmaceuticals we need to look into healing the source of the discomfort.
Kratom has kept me going and on my feet but when it wears off its like the levee has broke.
