Many life situations make people end up being addicted to opiates such as heroin and morphine. It may seem as a solution to many difficult life situations, but nevertheless, when somebody gets to realize he or she makes his life worse using opiates, many want to quit. But getting of heroin is not so easy, as you experience something that everybody knows as “cold turkey”, a term referring to people who experience opiate withdraw. This is a very difficult step and some of the worse symptoms are:
- Feeling of cold
- High body temperature
- Excessive sweating
- Racing heartbeat
Opiate withdrawal symptoms are very strong, last for at least one week and are very hard to deal with. But you won’t have to worry about them if you use Kratom, which opiate withdraw management effects are one of the greatest and most effective methods to deal with your issue!
What is the chemistry of withdrawal and how can Kratom help you manage it?
To put it simpler, the secret lies in brain activity. In our everyday life, we experience many changes such as the organism fighting with various harmful agents, which may cause a feeling of pain or discomfort, but we also have opiates which are released with the help of brain signaling which make us feel sable or good. When we use heroin or morphine we make our body adapt to receiving these opiates from the outside and when we get used to it the body stops producing its own opiates and awaits from them to come from the outside and if they don’t we experience a lot of unpleasant things. Mainly opiates affect the brains limbic system, a system which mainly controls emotion, so during withdrawal, we feel bad. It influences the brainstem, which controls our most important body functions, so during withdraw you may experience elevated body temperature, racing heartbeat, and excessive sweating. Also, you may have digestive upsets, which may lead to vomiting followed by dehydration, which may lead to a critical issue. The role of Kratom in fighting opiate withdrawal, is actually replacing heroin or morphine (because it is an opiate agonist itself) but in lower doses and concentrations, helping the organism slowly adapt to the fact it should create its own opiates and by this slow opiate reduction to bring the brain back to its normal functional state.
What are the best types of Kratom for this? What are the doses?
For the best opiate withdraw management effects, it’s best to use red vein strains, as they have the highest concentrations of alkaloids and a stronger effect, a thing which you will need at the beginning of your fight with the cold turkey. The best strains are:
- Maeng Da
- Red Thai
The best doses are: a start dose of 2-4gr and an additional 1gr after every 30 minutes, depending on whether you experience withdraw symptoms or not. Stop taking it when you don’t experience withdraw anymore and don’t forget to take it before and not during the withdraw!
Strength and conditions
The red strains discussed above are the strongest even in small doses, as they contain a high concentration of alkaloids (which also depends on who you buy it from). You can use it in any condition which arises from opiate withdraw.
