    GWIA – Red Lawhern, Patient Advocate and his supportive Opioid research

    GWIA – Red Lawhern, Patient Advocate and his supportive Opioid research

    If there is even one reason we chronic pain warriors can ever even get one rx of opioids these days it’s because of Red.  He has been fighting a relentless battle to help people arm themselves with data to support pain driven access to proper and needed medicines especially opioids.  Red has very strong opinions that may come through as overly forceful but the goal s to help you during this full pendulum swing of politics against effective pain management.  Also, please give the phone connection a pass this week as the interview starts a bit rough but indeed gets better.  [EP8]

    Please let us know what you think of this episode and please give us a rating.  Cheers, John

    GWIA – Brigette McReynolds Pt.2

    In part two of our Brigette McReynolds interview you’ll learn all about the real work involved in a chronic pain program and the very real benefits for one person that was in deep trouble in her life. Continuing the story of her chronic pain program efforts and how they paid her back, leading to her own enlightenment, you’ll learn how to bring these practices into your own life . I listen to her talk and I want that enlightenment but she certainly went through a lot of hard work getting there. A truly fascinating story of life, pain and redemption. Amazing! Enjoy and learn.
