Nov 17 Update – How to use Kratom – the herb that reduces pain, depression and opiate addiction
This is our first post using WordPress. Soon a comment section will follow.
Kratom is grown and imported from southeast Asia. It is a natural pain reliever and is being increasingly used by heroin and cocaine addicts to help them break their addictions. It may also help with alcohol addiction. There are several strains of this herb. An online article explains how to use Kratom although the article does not state that heroin and fentanyl addicts can safely use it to overcome their addiction. If they did, the FDA and DEA gestapo would move in to seize the herbs and remove them from the market. The FDA and DEA actions are protecting the market monopolies of the pharmaceutical Corps. who manufacture narcotics and opiates that are directly contributing to the national health crisis that is taking 175 lives every day.
Conflicts of interest: A Congressional investigation into the link between FDA managers and supervisors and the drug companies that manufacture narcotics is long overdue. At a death rate of 175 victims per day (64,000 per year) from FDA narcotics as well as those smuggled into the US from Mexico, remedial action is overdue. It is obvious that the FDA and the DEA are working for financial benefit of the drug companies and against the public’s best interest. To read more about Kratom and to locate sources to buy online, go to kratomguides.com The DEA has already tried to stop the importation of Kratom into the United States.
Six states have made distribution of Kratom illegal according to some search engine web sites. These include my home state of Wisconsin and adjoining Illinois, but not Michigan or Minnesota where Kratom sales are legal. If you live in one of the states where sales of Kratom are illegal, you may not be able to purchase the herb online. You may have to travel to an adjoining state to obtain some for personal use. Although Kratom is an anti-depressant, it is not addictive and not one single death has been reported from its responsible use.
How the DEA could legally classify white sugar and table salt as Class 1 substances making them illegal without a prescription
Under the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) definition of an opiate, white sugar, corn syrup, and table salt could be all classified along with cocaine and heroin as a class 1 substance as these substances have no medical value and are addictive. While the American Medical Assn. has asked the FDA to regulate salt in food claiming nearly 500,000 deaths per year from excess salt consumption, the number of people developing diabetes, obesity and heart disease from white sugar and refined carbohydrates exceeds even that of table salt consumption. I could not think of a faster way to get a revolution started in the streets than to take away the most common addictive substances known to man – sodium chloride (table salt) and sugar.
The states that have made Kratom illegal are depriving their own residents of a herb that is a highly effective against pain, and is an antidepressant as well. There is no evidence that any person has ever died from using Kratom, but there is evidence that pain killers and other drugs approved by the FDA are directly responsible for over 100,000 deaths per year. Politicians and attorneys who side with the FDA and the big drug companies are rewarding major political campaign contributors and all of them have blood on hands. These are fighting words, and they should be fighting words, as government officials that harm people need to called to publicly explain their actions and their bad behavior. Their failure of leadership needs to be investigated and not sugar coated. Corrupt government officials and those with conflicts of interest need to be terminated and replaced with competent and honest public servants.
It has been written that while Nero fiddled, Rome burned. Today, politicians have inherited a mess with the national opioid epidemic that is claiming 175 lives every day. If the politicians along with the FDA, and the DEA continue to listen to the same people who created this mess for personal profit and to please political donors, the bodies will continue to stack up.
FDA protects Big Pharma’s marketing monopolies by nixing Kratom
Note: You can read the FDA’s latest post on Kratom here dated Nov 14, 2017. In this post the FDA stated that some Kratom products have been laced with hydrocodone. Another problem is that the alleged deaths they report have been associated with smoking Kratom to get high. That is not a responsible use for this valuable herb. See kratomguides.com for how to use this herb safely and responsibly by making a herbal tea or taking a capsule. These guidelines warn against smoking the herb or buying them from a head shop where they may be contaminated with dangerous FDA approved narcotics or street drugs.
FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb offers the carrot of FDA approval and says no one has come forward to file an application for FDA approval of Kratom. He knows that Kratom like all other natural remedies are not patentable and the one billion dollar price tag for FDA approval of commercial speech for Kratom’s therapeutic uses (including that of any other dietary supplement) are not a recoverable investment.
The FDA has never approved a single herb or plant based remedy in their entire history of approving drugs. They began recording such approvals in 1938 and you can find all of them in a publication called the “Orange Book.” What you will not find in the Orange book are any plant based non-patentable natural remedies, not a one. To claim that the FDA drug application process is a remedy with a viable path to government approval for a natural remedy is a plain lie and is outright dishonest.
