If you want to avoid kratom withdrawal symptoms, it’s important to approach your kratom use responsibly. “Most people are taking way too much kratom powder,” says Hawaii Kratom farmer Aaron Moeller, “I’ve never experienced kratom withdrawals.” This could be because Moeller consumes most of his kratom in the form of kratom tea. He also drinks plenty of water.
If it’s too late to switch to kratom tea bags and you need to reduce, or quit, your kratom powder and/or kratom extract consumption, then get ready to drink lots of water and gradually reduce your kratom consumption over time.
3 Tips to Minimize Kratom Withdrawal:
- Gradual tapering: Instead of quitting kratom abruptly, gradually reduce your dosage over time. This approach allows your body to adjust gradually and minimizes the severity of withdrawal symptoms. Create a tapering schedule and stick to it, reducing your dose incrementally over several weeks or months.
- Stay hydrated: Proper hydration can support your body’s ability to cope with the withdrawal process. Drink plenty of water.
- Engage in self-care practices: Incorporate self-care practices into your daily routine to manage stress and promote well-being. This can include activities like exercise, meditation, deep breathing exercises, taking warm baths, getting enough sleep, and engaging in hobbies or activities that bring you joy.
If you’ve had a bad experience, you may never take kratom again. However, for those that need medication, kratom could be a better choice than pharmaceutical alternatives.
It’s worth noting that everyone’s experience with kratom withdrawal may vary, and it’s important to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice and support. They can provide guidance tailored to your specific needs and circumstances.
