IS THIS THE ANSWER TO TREATING ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION?
Los Angeles, CA - Researchers believe this potent herb from Southeast Asia just might herald the end to chronic pain and anxiety. Although it has been available in the United States for several years, only recently has it gained popularity due to a few controversial attempts by the DEA and FDA to control it's availability in this country. Fortunately for the millions of people who suffer not only from these addictions, but from the debilitating side-effects many suffer from their long term use. It is a sad fact that anxiety related disorders are the most common illness in this nation, affecting over forty-million (40,000,000) adults or nearly 20% of the population. Many who suffer from these disorders see their anxiety manifest in panic attacks, agoraphobia, social anxiety and depression.
According to the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, about One-hundred Million (100,000,000) adults in the United States are affected annually by chronic pain. Arthritis, back pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia, migraines, or acute muscular pain, for those who suffer from such issues, it limits functional status and adversely impacts everyone's quality of life. Pain also complicates medical care for root cause ailments, and it hinders one’s ability to work and function in society.
Over the past few decades, we have been conditioned to seek relief from synthetic pharmaceutical drugs. While we believe they can play an important role in treatment for certain conditions, we have to be mindful of the side-effects that in many instances can create a cure that is far worse than the disease. Long-term use of powerful opioids like Vicodin and even other-the-counter medications like Acetaminophen can cause symptoms like:
Pain throughout the body.
Discomfort and restlessness.
How many of these side effects are you experiencing? We should all be asking is numbing our pain worth exchange one symptom for numerous other symptoms? If you are one of the millions who suffer needlessly from chronic pain, debilitating anxiety or depression, we encourage you to take a close, objective look at the herb, Mitragyna speciosa. You may be one of the ones who exchange the negative side effects listed above for possible benefits such as:
Boost the immune system
Manage blood sugar
Induce healthy sleep
Lower blood pressure
Increase mental focus
Mitragyna speciosa is a tropical evergreen tree in the coffee family (Rubiaceae) native to Southeast Asia in the Indochina and Malaysia phytochoria (botanical regions). It has been used in traditional medicine throughout these countries since at least the 19th century. Speciosa, also known as Kratom, has both opioid and stimulant-like properties. At the stimulant level, the mind is more alert, physical energy (and sometimes sexual energy) is increased, one feels more motivated to get things done, ability to do hard, monotonous physical work may be improved, there is an elevation of mood (it has an antidepressant effect), one is more talkative, friendly, and sociable. The stimulant effects of kratom are different from typical CNS stimulants, such as caffeine or amphetamine drugs. Kratom is more of a cognitive stimulant than a physical stimulant. At sedative dose you will be less sensitive to physical or emotional pain, look and feel calm and may have a general feeling of comfortable pleasure.
