30: Leaves of Change: A Personal Tale of Kratom, Health, and Family Redemption with Melody Woolf
Plants Saved My Life
In this episode, Raven sits down with Melody Woolf, a resilient individual who conquered fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis, and more, spending years bedridden and in chronic pain. Discover how kratom, discovered six years ago, became the key to her transformation. Melody went from relying on a wheelchair and walker to walking, biking, and embracing a vibrant family life.
Listen as Melody recounts her diagnosis of fibromyalgia and the life-changing impact of kratom. Now an active part of her adult children's lives, she even provided full-time childcare for her granddaughter in 2022, reclaiming lost family moments.
As a passionate kratom activist, Melody advocates for its benefits, supported by scientific backing from NIH, NIDA, US HHS, NEJM, Sloan Kettering, Yale, WHO, and the UN. Join us for a compelling journey of healing, family, and the power of kratom.
