How Effective Is Kratom In Managing Chronic Pain?

Kratom is a tree, native to the South Asian countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Myanmar. For centuries, natives consumed the leaves of this herbal substance to manage pain and boost the body’s metabolism. There are many working compounds present in Kratom, such as 7-hydroxy mitragynine and mitragynine. These ingredients act as the primary active ingredients.

With the increasing demand for natural supplements, prescribed medication has taken a back seat. Many reasons account for harmful side-effects that come with such medicines. That’s where herbal and natural substances come in the form of alternative medication. Kratom is one of the supplements that has gained considerable popularity because of its roots and history. You can either incorporate it into your lifestyle or add it to your diet or regular meals. You can add the leaves to make your morning tea. All you have to do is search for online or offline stores that provide awesome kratom for sale.

However, if you’re having doubtful thoughts, there are solutions. Questions like ‘is Kratom legal in Canada’ or ‘how to search for legal supplements’ will cross your mind. But you can always look on the web or even maps, to clear your doubts.

Those who are suffering from chronic pain and don’t know how to manage it, given below are some essential pointers you shouldn’t miss.

CBD research and treatment go mainstream

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Fri, Dec 20, 2019

For years, the topic of CBD for medical use was controversial. However, now that it has been approved for general use in the US, CBD (cannabidiol) is now widely researched and used for a variety of health conditions.

CBD is NOT psychoactive. While both cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) come from the Cannabis plant genus, they are quite different compounds:

  • THC is known for its psychoactive effects (ie: the "high" feeling).
  • CBD is not a recreational drug and doesn't offer the psychoactive effects of THC.

What to Avoid If You Suffer from Chronic Pain Due to Mitochondrial Dysfunction

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Tue, Jul 10, 2018

Get to know mitochondria

Mitochondrial dysfunction refers to errors in the function of the specialized organelles (mitochondria) present in every cell of our body with the exception of red blood cells. Mitochondria are best known as the "power plants" of the cells and they make our energy molecule known as Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP, however their role in our body is much more complex than once thought. Without mitochondria we cease to exist, but when these specialized structures don't work right, our life can take a big turn for the worse!

The Brain and Gut Role in Chronic Pain Relief

Too Many People Are Hurting And I Want to Help

People dealing with chronic pain are everywhere. We are seeing both children and adults dealing with more and more headaches, back pain, neck pain, joint pain and pain syndromes. Chronic pain is defined as pain that persists longer than six months. Long term pain is often accompanied by other symptoms. These symptoms can include poor sleep, poor emotional control, depression, anxiety, fatigue and burnout.

It is important to not just cover up the symptoms of chronic pain. There is no doubt that drugs that reduce or relieve pain can help people deal with the pain. It is important not to rely on the drugs in the long term. There are major side effects with many of these medications. The CDC recently reported that deaths from prescription opioids have more than quadrupled since 1999. It is important for people to know a non-drug option exists for chronic pain.
