Narconon Against Herbal Remedies Too

    One of my Facebook friends was railing against the FDA's war on the herbal pain reliever "Kratom." I searched for information and quickly found that Narconon was against it too. They immediately threw up a chat window to ask if I needed assistance.

    My questions have to do with relieving the pain of rheumatoid arthritis so no thanks, Narconcon. And here I thought all they hated were "psych drugs."

    It's because it's opioid based.

    My mom had rheumatoid arthritis and she got some sort of hormone treatment that helped her with the symptoms.
    IIRC, she was in her late 60s or early 70s when she was getting the hormone treatments.

    I don't know if her hormone treatment would also work for men.
