A note to our visitors about the use of medicinal herbs and the Withdrawal-Ease Product:
This site and the product have not been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, cure or prevent any disease. Although most content is written by myself, I have used several credible resources in order to write the content and make observations on specific details of withdrawal and opiate detox including: The CDC, The NIH and the DEA. When a specific source or a passage from a published account has been used, I will cite it. Mostly though, it is the combination of many hours of research as well as talking with experts in the field and my own experiences with opiate addiction and withdrawal.
Withdrawal-Ease Opiate Withdrawal Natural Supplement System ® is indicated for people who are taking narcotic pain killers without -or contrary to- the advice of a doctor. This product is not meant for people who are taking narcotic pain killers in compliance with a physicians’ orders due to a chronic illness, acute injury, chronic pain or for another legitimate medical issue. If you wish to discontinue legitimately prescribed opiate pain killers please see your prescribing physician before taking this or any other product for your withdrawal symptoms.
The information on this site is intended as a reference only and not as medical proof. The information on this site is intended to help you make informed decisions about the effectiveness of the product and lucid decisions about your health. This site and the product sold on this site is not intended to be a substitute for any treatments or addiction-management programs currently prescribed by your licensed physician. You should consult your physician before taking any therapeutic substances or treatments so that he or she may make an informed decision of its appropriateness based on your medical history. Please use common sense when taking any of the herbs described in this site or before taking the Withdrawal-Ease Product. Always take a product as directed on its label and do not assume that taking more will increase the potency of the product. Women who are pregnant or nursing should be especially careful before taking this product or any other herbs before seeking the advice of their physician. If you suspect any allergic reactions from this or any other herbal remedies, please seek professional medical help immediately. Be smart and be safe.
Withdrawal-Ease is not intended to cure all symptoms and should not be a replacement for ongoing addiction counseling or psychotherapy. Please understand that there is a difference between helping to reduce the intensity of opiate withdrawal and “curing opiate addiction.” there are a lot of crazy claims out there and some unsavory marketers would have you believe that their product can work instantly or cure addiction. This is NOT the case with their product OR Withdrawal Ease! Withdrawal Ease cannot cure opiate addiction; we can only play a small part in your recovery process; the detox and withdrawal process.
Regarding Off-label use for Withdrawal-Ease:
Withdrawal syndromes such as alcohol and benzodiazepine withdrawal can cause seizures and possibly death. Please consult a physician before using Withdrawal-Ease for either of these conditions! As always, Withdrawal-Ease is designed to help relieve some of the common withdrawal symptoms associated with the cessation of addictive substances and more specifically opiates. Many of the common symptoms of opiate withdrawal are also present in benzodiazepine and alcohol withdrawal. Withdrawal-Ease may help relieve some of these symptoms but not all and we strongly recommend that you work with a physician to implement a tapering and recovery plan if you are dependent or addiction to benzodiazepines or alcohol.
