Letter from the Herbalist
This month I'm celebrating my favorite holiday--St Patrick's
Day. And my birthday. From the time I was small I thought
everyone had the local radio station dedicate an Irisfeel
they need something h song to me....either MacNamara's Band
or Tu Ra Lu Ra Lu Ra. That was from my father. When I was in
high school, I celebrated by going to the Hibernian
Club with my girlfriend and her parents and a few hundred
drunken Irish folk. And then I went thru my drinking
phase and doesn't everyone get drunk on St Paddy's Day.
And now I don't even celebrate. Ahhhh....aging.
Things are changing in the herb world. For those that
don't know about it, kratom is a great herb that has helped
hundreds get off of opiods. It helps manage pain.
In fact, my HVAC man told me he was thrilled he was able to
manage his back pain without the medicine from his doctor
which made him groggy. So I looked through my database
and contacted my source in Indonesia (where kratom comes
from) a ordered 4 kilos. It came quickly and my
partner and I tried it. There are different varieties
of kratom and we decided to go strictly with the variety
thar worked on pain rather than the euphoric variety.
I must be aging. Many doctors and therapists also feel
that kratom helps with the opioid problem. The DEA has
recently come to the conclusion that this is an herb that
should be off the market. Looks like they need
something to replace cannibis. So if you have a
chance, try kratom while it's still available.
