The “emergency” scheduling of M. Speciosa is a gross abuse of power.
M. Speciosa is a mild herbal medicine, with fewer side effects than many prescribed medications, and greater effectiveness than those same chemicals. The tea may compete with the pharmaceutical makers of opiates, ssri’s, and narcotics prescribed for anxiety, but with less harm than those dangerous pills.
I have personal experience with the danger of the psychiatric drugs, having lost years – over half my life – to the physical and mental adverse reactions of such accepted interventions. I was a diligent patient, committed to following the instructions and to using the best modern medicine could allow. Modern medicine failed me and my family. M. Speciosa helped me become a positive, contributing member of my daughter’s school community where I tutored children struggling with reading.
