Plus, what’s up with the Epipen price hike? What will you do if you don’t have or can’t afford the epipen, or even the still expensive ($606 for 2 pack) generic version? Dr. Bones shares a method of administering an alternative in the face of an emergency.
Kratom is being made into a schedule 1 drug, which is the same level as Heroin. This herb is blamed for 15 deaths, but only one of those deaths was the person found with only Kratom onboard. Many Kratom users herald it as the reason they were able to stop using other drugs, like heroin and pain meds. The users and their families contacted their congress members and a call to delay the change of Kratom to a schedule 1 drug has been made by the supportive congress members. We discuss this issue and give you the 411.
Chamomile is a wonderful herbal medicine; It is known to calm digestive issues and calm nervous disorders and been used safely for centuries. Nurse Amy discusses this awesome herbal remedy and how to use it.
