Kratom use has proved beneficial to thousands of Americans trying to come off narcotic pain killers and alcohol withdrawals.  The positive results have been overwhelming compared to side effects from opiates felt by some.  These are mostly confined to nausea/vomiting which is sometimes experienced.  The biggest false news issue that has been pressed by big pharma in banning the plant regionally has been several deaths linked to the plant when combined with drinking alcohol or narcotic drugs/prescription medicine.  This is something to stress to anyone looking to try Kratom; never mix it with alcohol.  

Personally, I have been occasionally taking Kratom in tea form for several years and feel it makes a terrific focus and mood enhancer.  I’ve never been addicted to opioids but I’m encouraged by the latest news that people who have had issues with oxycontin etc have found comfort in Kratom while trying to get away from dangerous substances.  I can not imagine that a country which prides itself on personal liberty and freedoms would make a natural plant based substance completely illegal.  But then again Marijuana prohibition has been in effect federally since the 1930s; a plant that can grow on the side of the highways of america anywhere.  But as far as major clinics doing research the verdict is still out on the effectiveness of Kratom for curing addiction.  According to research studies at the Mayo Clinic, Kratom can lead to possible addiction itself with users feeling withdrawal symptoms similar to those of opioids.  They also cite that the plant is responsible for 36 deaths in the United States.
