Kratom: treatment of depression and stress

Kratom: treatment of depression and stress

Depression or depressive disorders is one of the most common contemporary diseases, affecting almost every second member of the population in any country. Women are especially vulnerable because they are 70% more likely to suffer from this ailment, due to the characteristics of reproductive, hormonal, genetic and other biological factors.

Depression is a serious problem worldwide. Traditionally, there is a distinction between endogenous (internal) and reactive (as a response to a stimulus) model of depression: endogenous starts from within on its own, reactive is a reaction to an external situation. Below we provide you a list of symptoms indicating the presence of depression:

  • Permanent feeling anxiety or lack of emotion,
  • Feeling hopeless or pessimistic,
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness,
  • Irritability, anxiety,
  • Loss of interest in activities or hobbies, to things that were enjoyable, including sex,
  • Chronic fatigue and reduced energy,
  • Concentration on difficulties, looping, inability to make decisions,
  • Insomnia, very early awakenings, or excessive sleepiness,
  • Overeating or loss of appetite,
  • Suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts,
  • Pains: headaches, cramps,
  • Digestive problems that do not change even with treatment.

Doctors and psychiatrists believe that depression is a brain disorder caused by a chemical imbalance in the body that they are trying to correct in a medical way.

Studies have shown that the result of such treatment is that a person becomes dependent on antidepressants and refusal to take the drug leads to insomnia; irritability; nervousness and anxiety; thoughts of suicide and attempts to commit it; anxiety; trembling; hostility; uneven heartbeat, aggressiveness; confused and incoherent thoughts, paranoia, hallucinations, psychosis. The effect is even more aggravated if the person decided to carry out self-treatment and took medications unsystematically, at his own discretion. As a result, we already have, not just depression – but drug and mental dependence.

How can Kratom help us in the fight against depression and stress?

Kratom is better known as the “pain killer,” but as a result of the study, it was discovered that the adrenergic alkaloid, mitraginine, which is part of the plant, has a beneficial effect on the nervous system. Since ancient times, plants containing alkaloids have been used in the treatment of depression, insomnia and anxiety. Among its other functions – a pronounced stimulation of the adrenal glands, whose work is sharply reduced due to stressful situations and this is one of the fundamental causes of depressive disorders. The use of kratom is distinguished by increased safety in contrast to standard antidepressants. Many people report that – unlike opioid painkillers – Kratom not only relieves pain, but stimulates an active healthy lifestyle, gives self-confidence, sociability, a desire to contact people – which is the best resistance in the fight against depression. A new life begins and a person comes out of his shell created out of despair and hopelessness.

Kratom minimizes the feeling of hopelessness, the desire to isolate oneself from people, indecision, stimulates active development both psychologically and physically.

Thus, Kratom contributes to the cure of depressive disorders and anxiety in the most natural way, because you use it without any additional inorganic additives. It can also be used to move from the use of antidepressants, if they have already become an addiction and does not bring the result that you expect.

All the properties of this plant have not yet been fully studied, but it is known that kratom can not only alleviate the human condition, but also become a useful alternative to alcohol, chemicals and suspicious stimulants.

We would like to repeat once again that depression is a disease that does not “cure time” and if you find yourself having the above symptoms, do not be indifferent to your own health, think about the fact that your body needs help. Kratom treatment can alleviate the symptoms of depression in more than 80% of these cases, but since it is often not recognized, depression continues to cause unnecessary suffering.
