The Natural Alternatives to Meth and Speed Drugs
What Is Special about Meth and Speed Drugs
Speed drugs act as central nervous system stimulants,
not unlike how adrenaline arouses the "flight or fight" response
Meth and speed drugs are amphetamine based, acting as central nervous system stimulants, similar in function to the endogenous hormone adrenaline that arouses the "flight or fight" response to situations of threat and fear. Variants of the synthetic drug amphetamine are methamphetamine and dextroamphetamine. Only dextroamphetamine is able to be legally produced. Dexedrine and Adderall, used to stimulate and overcome boredom are dextroamphetamines that might be used as meth substitutes, but lack the power of meth. Although many people seek the stimulation of a methamphetamine high the only source of supply is from illicit speed labs, therefore some people are attracted to legal natural alternatives that are made from herbal products. (References on amphetamines).
About 20 years ago, a natural alternative to meth and speed drugs was ephedrine, then readily available as an OTC drug. Although lacking the full dopamine effects of meth, ephedrine is a powerful stimulant having associations with horse doping. Home based speed labs need a supply of ephedrine or pseudoephedrine as an ingredient of meth.
Advertized legal and natural alternatives to meth and speed drugs include herbal preparations containing herbs such as spirulina, guarana, ginseng, maca, muira puama, that come with warnings not to use if you are pregnant, have heart problems and about potential toxicity. These natural products stimulate the sympathetic nervous system and may be useful for male sexual dysfunction, creating feelings of strength and power. Natural meth substitutes lack the dopamine effects which are achieved by using methamphetamines. Energy and performance might be improved but there is not the euphoria of speed drugs.
The Danger of Using Herbal Products as a Stimulant
The danger is that it puts people on the threshold of a drug world that susceptible people might find intriguing, and so venture into using illegal speed drugs.
People might think that using legal and natural alternatives to meth and speed drugs, natural stimulants that enhance the ability of the mind to focus and concentrate, and enable the body to have more endurance, could if properly utilized have a potential to go on and enable people to achieve a natural dopamine high, a result of outstanding achievement, a reward for genuine effort.
The root cause of a need for amphetamine use, indeed most drug use today, is that we lack motivation to be doing the things that we should, ought and need to be doing. When people are enthused, optimistic and determined, happy to be doing something - the mind and body naturally create the bio chemicals needed to enhance our performance, to complete the task.
The True and Safe Alternative to Meth and Speed Drugs
The real answer to the question - is there any natural alternative to meth and speed drugs - is yes: they are natural optimism and excitement, motivation and determination - the will to succeed, and constructive organization.
When we are highly motivated - it gets our adrenaline rushing. Amphetamines are only a synthetic form of adrenalin - why use, and pay for an imitation when, with some real motivation and enthusiasm - we can generate our own adrenalin "rush", and a dopamine high. Pure endogenous adrenalin is not contaminated with the many dubious chemicals that get added to methamphetamine in speed labs. We do damage to our body, to our lungs, our mouth, our skin when we try to use an inferior product to our own internal supply of powerful, complete endogenous adrenalin.
The body ensures that we get the precise adrenalin dose that we need, and supports our intended effort by making sure that all of the other body chemicals are in tune and in sync. If what we are intending to do, fails to rouse our adrenalin levels, then we need to be looking, not at drug use, but at re-evaluating our motivation, our value systems and goals.
