If you have already experienced the benefits of Kratom, there is no doubt that it must have impressed you on various levels. These positive effects are what that explains how a herb from the Southeast Asian countries has grown big over the years with a historic traditional background. It is harvested from countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Bali, and Indonesia due to its potent nature in treating fever, cough, pain, insomnia, bad mood, fatigue, anxiety, depression and much more. But any good thing can become quite harmful and bad when taking in large quantities. This is the truth of every substance that promotes good health and wellness. Kratom is not an exception to this fact as well. Kratom, when consumed for quite a long time leads to tolerance and hence, those people experiencing its benefits need to take a break or subject their body to cleansing courses so that the benefits don’t go waste.
How does Kratom work?
To really understand, why you need tolerance breaks or cleansing courses, it is important to understand the mechanism of Kratom. The leaves of Kratom consist of powerful alkaloids like Mitragynine and 7-Hydroxymitragynine that bind with the opioid receptors of the brain. These alkaloids increase the production of serotonin through these process due to which, pleasure is increased and pain is decreased. This is why Kratom is mostly administered to people with chronic pain disorders and other joint issues. The alkaloids, Mitragynine also binds with other receptors of the brain to bring about stimulation.
The euphoric effects of Kratom are what that has put people into the realms of confusion. Most people who have been addicted to the prescribed painkillers are skeptical about having Kratom for their rescue since it looks like they are hopping on from one drug to another seeking solution. What they believe in is ultimate, addiction is going to happen no matter what. However, it is important to understand that no person can overdose of Kratom like other opiate drugs. Hence, Kratom is considered to be a cost-effective solution for pain than other opioid pain killers. There is a widely spread rumor that Kratom causes respiratory depression but the facts state that Kratom is not harmful on its own and it does cause certain unfavorable situations only when it is mixed with other harmful agents.
So, what is tolerance? You need to know that the alkaloids in Kratom do not get flushed out of the body as soon as you think. Even after the effects fade away, they tend to stay in the body for quite some time which gradually leads to tolerance. For example, you might have started with a particular dosage to experience certain effects. But after a year or so, you might realize that you need to larger doses to experience similar effects as to what you experienced in the very beginning. That is why you need tolerance breaks from Kratom. An effective way to do this is to stop using the product for a significant period of time so that you give an opportunity to your body to re-adjust it for better.
There must be some responsibility with your Kratom dosage and to use Kratom only when it is needed. For example, you can use it only when you experience any chronic pain or when you don’t really feel sleep or if you are going to have a long day at work. At other times, you can stop using the product and not make it a habit. You can also alternate between different strains as in having a particular strain that promotes sleep on the day you don’t feel sleepy and on the next day you can stick on to some other stimulating strain during work.
Monthly Kratom cleansing course
Why do you need this? As discussed earlier, only half of the Kratom leaves your body by getting flushed out of your system in a day. So the remaining alkaloids stick on to your body and this might be due to several factors such as
- Age – Old aged people might suffer from this problem due to the degraded power of their renal function
- Fat – A fat person tends to retain Kratom alkaloids for a long time since it gets stored in the fatty tissue.
- Water and food consumption – This can be crucial since consuming Kratom on an empty stomach or after a meal will have significant changes just like consuming enough amount of water can flush Kratom out of your system faster.
So if you tend to see these factors in you, it is important that you abstain yourself from Kratom as a cleansing course to reduce the tolerance. Stop using Kratom for some time until your body gets adjusted to the earlier conditions. Also, make sure you get your Kratom from a high-quality vendor and follow a healthy lifestyle for minimizing the tolerance.
