Does anyone here know a good site to get quality Kratom?

If so, do you have a recommendation of what kind(s) for pain, depression/anxiety, and severe fatigue? Likely those would be different kinds for different times of day.

Of course, you can PM me, as that may be best (not sure). Thank you! I am very much in need of new natural remedies that might help with these issues.

The pain is severe nerve damage pain---CRPS/ RSD. That is, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, which used to be known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. Again, thank you.

Maybe vacation to Florida? There are kava bars there that sell it. Otherwise, I don't know.

Thank you, six. I'm not even capable of going much of anywhere now, except a few medical appointments locally---with difficulty.

I did receive a PM from someone I PM'd, which is helpful. [Now another person, too]. I'm also hoping to get more PM's, or answers on the thread.

For depression/anxiety, I take NAC (NOW brand) and love it. It raises Glutathione levels which cause the body to produce more B12. For severe fatigue, I use Cats Claw (Source Naturals 1,000 mg/pill which is so large,

you have to melt it in a little water and add it to a Tbl of yogurt). Cats Claw zaps Lyme Borrelia which is a primary cause of severe fatigue.

Here is a link I found on Lymenet from a previous discussion about Kratom:

"Lyme or not, I found help"....

http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=3;t=035397;p=0

I would contact the posters for more information.

While researching about Kratom for my son's chronic pain, I learned the red vein one is considered best for pain relief. Also, some strains of Kratom can be good for resting and relaxing, while others will provide energy.

Thank you, Lymetoo, tulips, and hopingandpraying (that's what I'm doing, too!).

I have received some PM's, too, which is great. I finally figured out where, what kinds, etc., and will try it. It sounds like it could be an answer to my prayers. Not that it will get rid of the infections and

damage, but will help with symptoms, esp pain, so I can survive this mess!

tulips, I do take NAC; I think that I'll take it more than once/day. I think it is one of the ones that gives me a lot of gas : - ( But I'll try more.

I do have Cats Claw, so I could try that. Unfortunately, I've been off treatment for way too long. I developed Candida, & had to get on top of that. Then, I realized that was because my

elimination has totally shut down since I started taking gabapentin, and now Lyrica instead for the horrific pain. I only take a small dose, and only at night, but … I can't get my system

working well no matter how much herbs, magnesium, etc. I take. I've developed gastroparesis on top of everything else!!! Lord, give me strength.

hoping, I have contacted some of these posters. Some have replied, some haven't seen the PM's yet.

The irony is that in my state (NY) and in NJ, they are trying to outlaw kratom----arghhh! The # of things that helped me that they have outlawed over the years (homeopathic, etc.!) is way too many.

Thank you, sparkle! Unfortunately, you sent it when LN was acting up, and I never received it! I hope you have a copy of it to cut and paste and send it again. I just sent you a PM to that effect.

What a mess that was for quite a while.

Thank you six, that's what I did. I just wanted to know about reputable companies, plus what varieties had worked well for others for nerve pain and the other symptoms.

Oh, sorry I didn't get more information. He's been using it for years now. We think it might be his cause of chronic hives though, so he's off it for a while.
