My Dad is 81 years old. He has quite a few conditions, some that cause him a lot of pain. He cannot take nsaid pain kilers and of course the doctors will not prescribe any kind of opioid, the one they might prescribe (Vicodin) has nsaids. My dad is very anti drug. I told him about kratom but he scoffed at it. It finally took the knowledge that anothoer of our (older) relatives were using it to finally get him to give it a try. Within an hour of taking it, he was outside doing yard work! It's like I have my old, healthy Dad back. Well that's about all I got to say. Thanks for listening, and thanks to everyone that believes in the power of medicinal plants!
