Kratom is a powerful substance and one of its strains "Maeng Da" has grown in popularity. This fascinating substance has taken a life of its own and is among the more used strains in the world.
For those looking to lose weight and/or gain energy, it's time to look at Maeng Da in detail and all that it has to offer.
What is Maeng Da?
Maeng Da is a type of kratom strain, which has a unique subset of effects and is well-regarded as a "potent" strain. This red-colored strain is originally found in the heart of Asia and is a ball of energy with regards to its overall impact. It provides a wide-ranging list of advantages and is used for a number of medicinal purposes.
To take this the right way, it's best to start with 50-100 mg to see appropriate change.
Benefits of Maeng Da
1) Fast Weight Loss
When the right Maeng Da dosage is used, the weight is going to drip away rapidly. This is the true power of kratom and why it is openly used by millions of people worldwide. It is able to activate the body's metabolic response and can ensure everything functions properly over time. With this type of change, the weight starts going down.
When it is time to put together a comprehensive and personalized weight loss regimen, it's never a bad idea to start with Maeng Da.
2) Increase in Energy Levels
Along with the weight loss, people note an immediate change in their energy levels. Instead of dealing with chronic fatigue, they end up seeing a nice energy boost that lasts throughout the day and between dosages. Having this level of energy makes all the difference in the world for those fatigued.
A lot of people are unable to function due to this issue and that's where Maeng Da is able to get the job done. It provides a boost that is not only useful but is able to provide a meaningful change to how one feels.
3) Safe to Use
With years of continuous testing and meaningful natural properties, Maeng Da is a strong strain that gets the job done. Of course, it has been tested based on appropriate biological dosages and should only be used in those conditions. As long as the dosage is correct, your body is going to respond well.
This is what safety is all about when it is time to put things together and move towards a healthier life. Whether it is pain relief, weight loss, or simply a source of energy, kratom is safe to use.
4) Stress Relief
Stress can have a tremendous impact on one's life and it can start to seep into everything. Due to how kratom works, it is able to target those stresses at the chemical level and make sure things feel better. It is able to soothe the mind and that is when stress starts disappearing. For those dealing with bouts of pain, kratom is able to get rid of the pain, which helps eliminate stress.
Maeng Da is great for a number of reasons and one of them has to do with a general boost psychologically. People don't have to worry about their long-term mental health.
5) Pain Relief
Are you dealing with a constant burst of pain that refuses to go away?
This is a hurdle many people deal with and it can have a bothersome impact on their quality of life. Whether it is back pain, leg pain, migraines, or a combination of everything, you want a solution that is natural. This is one of the more efficient options available to people and it works like a charm.
The pain relief is both instantaneous and long-term ensuring you're able to move forward without a problem. This is why people enjoy using Maeng Da to their advantage.
There are many reasons to emphasize your Maeng Da dosage and it begins with these benefits. The strain is one of the most powerful and impactful options a person has and it can make a noteworthy difference. Pay attention to the Maeng Da dosage, make appropriate adjustments, and start noticing a change in how you feel.
Marriage can be a tightrope act: when everything is in balance, it is bliss and you feel safe, but once things get shaky, you are unsure about next steps. Add outside forces into the equation like kids, work, finances or a personal crisis and now there's a strong chance that you'll need extra support to keep you from falling.
My husband and I are no strangers to misunderstandings, which are expected in any relationship, but after 7 years of marriage, we were really being tested on how strong our bond was and it had nothing to do with the "7-year itch"--it was when I was diagnosed with PTSD. As a survivor of child sexual abuse who is a perfectionist, I felt guilty about not being the "perfect partner" in our relationship; frustrated that I might be triggered while being intimate; and worried about being seen as broken or weak because of panic attacks. My defense mechanism is to not need anyone, yet my biggest fear is often abandonment.
I am not a trained therapist or relationship expert, but since 2016, I have learned a lot about managing survivorship and PTSD triggers while being in a heterosexual marriage, so I am now sharing some of my practical relationship advice to the partners of survivors to support my fellow female survivors who may be struggling to have a stronger voice in their relationship. Partners of survivors have needs too during this process, but before those needs can be met, they need to understand how to support their survivor partner, and it isn't always an easy path to navigate.
To my fellow survivor sisters in romantic relationships, I write these tips from the perspective of giving advice to your partner, so schedule some quality time to talk with your boo and read these tips together.
I challenge you both to discuss if my advice resonates with you or not! Ultimately, it will help both of you develop an open line of communication about needs, boundaries, triggers and loving one another long-term.
1. To Be or Not to Be Sexy: Your survivor partner probably wants to feel sexy, but is ambivalent about sex. She was a sexual object to someone else and that can wreak havoc on her self-esteem and intimate relationships. She may want you to find her sexy and yet not want to actually be intimate with you. Talk to her about her needs in the bedroom, what will make her feel safe, what will make her feel sexy but not objectified, and remind her that you are attracted to her for a multitude or reasons--not just because of her physical appearance.
2. Safe Words = Safer Sex: Believe it or not, your partner's mind is probably wondering while you are intimate (yep, she isn't just thinking about how amazing you are, ha!). Negative thoughts can flash through her mind depending on her body position, things you say, how she feels, etc. Have a word that you agree on that she can say if she needs a break. It could be as simple as "pause," but it needs to be respected and not questioned so that she knows when it is used, you won't assume that you can sweet talk her into continuing. This doesn't have to be a bedroom only rule. Daytime physical touch or actions could warrant the safe word, as well.
3. Let Her Reconnect: Both partners need attention in a relationship, but sometimes a survivor is distracted. Maybe she was triggered that day, feels sad or her defense mechanisms are up because you did something to upset her and you didn't even know it (and she doesn't know how to explain what happened). If she is distant, ask her if she needs some time alone. Maybe she does, maybe she doesn't, but acknowledging that you can sense some internal conflict will go a long way. Sometimes giving her the space to reconnect with herself before expecting her to be able to focus on you/your needs is just what she needs to be reminded that she is safe and loved in this relationship.
4. Take the 5 Love Languages(r) Test: If you haven't read this book yet or taken the test, please at the very least take the free quiz to learn your individual love language. My top love language was Touch and Words of Affirmation before remembering my abuse and thereafter it became Acts of Service and Words of Affirmation. Knowing how your survivor partner prefers to be shown love goes a long way and it will in turn help your needs be met, as they might be different.
5. Be Patient: I know it might be frustrating at times and you can't possibly totally understand what your survivor partner is going through, but patience goes a long way. If your survivor partner is going through the early stages of PTSD, she feels like a lot of her emotional well-being is out of her control. Panic attacks are scary and there are triggers everywhere in society. For example, studies have shown that sexual references are made anywhere from 8 to 10 times during one hour of prime time television (source: Journal of Broadcasting & Electronic Media). My husband is now on high alert when we watch TV and film. He quickly paused a Game of Thrones episode when we started season 2 because he realized a potentially violent sexual scene was coming up, and ultimately we turned it off and never watched the series again. He didn't make a big deal about it and I was relieved.
6. Courage to Heal, Together: The Courage to Heal book has been around for many years and it supported me well during the onset of my first flashbacks of my abuse. At the back of the book is a partners section for couples to read together. I highly recommend it so that you can try to understand from a psychological, physical and emotional stand point what your survivor partner is grappling with and how the two of you can support one another on the path of healing and enjoying life together.
