Safe natural herbal product. After having my liver checked, it seems to have helped. I had liver problems before using Kratom, but now my doctor tells me its all clear.

I had sleep disorder for 15 years. I worked as a painter in the Film Industry doing physical labour for 10 hrs a day and I struggled by on 3 to 4 hrs sleep a night. I discovered Kratom Tea and the first time using it I slept for 8 hrs. I brew a pot of Kratom Tea each night and I can now sleep.
If you or anyone you know has suffered from sleep disorder you will understand how life changing this is. It has improved all aspects of my life. This is a very important medicinal plant that must be made readily available to all.

ANY plant that is of use to ANYONE for medical puposes should always be kept legal. It is sad times when milk, hemp, vitamins, and minerals are illegal, and booze, cigarettes, and prescription drugs that kill thousands a year is made legal! The people are on to your game, and ready to beat you at it!!!

Kratom has helped me immensely where other conventional therapies and medications have failed. Criminalising this herb would be counterproductive, absurd and deeply immoral. Efforts should be made to understand Kratom, not blithely ban it.
Rosette Wade United States
It is an all natural herb that helps many illnesses and people, why would you try to take that option away from people?!

I discovered Kratom by looking for alternative therapies for irritable bowel syndrome, something I have suffered with for the past three years. I tried many herbal, prescription and diet related therapies for it without any relief. For three years due to a difficult situation this condidtion persisted, and I was unable to leave my home in the early am hours, due to pain and many trips to the bathroom. I am an RN and work the night shift at a local hosptial. I was being prescribed narcotics, which worked but left me feeling depleated, tired and off. I tried Kratom about 6 months ago, and have had very few irritable bowel attacks. I now have started to go back to the gym, and the terrible depression that accompained it, has been lifted a bit. I do not drink alcohol or use anything other than vitamins, or other herbs such as valerian for sleep. Kratom has been a god send to me. As a healthcare provider, I can say I would definately recommend Kratom to others for various conditions without fear it would harm them. My hope is to become a holistic health care practioner, and without this herb being available I can say it would be a terrible loss to those it could help.

Anyone who would consider banning Kratom should spend at least a few minutes to learn from all of the people who's quality of life is being greatly improved because of this safe, natural, organic plant that improves their health and relieves chronic pain.

Making kratom illegal will only guarantee more prisoners, ruined lives and absolutely no drop in the use of the plant, it just ensures that drug cartels will have one more thing to make a dollar.

Any law prohibiting the free use of kratom would be unjust to the overwhelmingly responsible users who consume it for legitimate reasons.

Kratom is no doubt, a more favorable option than opiate/opioid pain-killers. Please, do not deny so many people a chance to be free - just because a few people abuse their freedoms. Please listen to the people that know this plant well.
