    Rethinking Pain with Dr. Amy Baxter

    Rethinking Pain with Dr. Amy Baxter

    If you’re struggling with chronic pain and trying to find help, you’ve probably noticed that the pain management industry is a big minefield with hardcore drugs on one end of the spectrum and questionable potions and placebos on the other. In an ideal world, pain is adaptive and part of our body’s defense mechanisms, but all too often it can become untethered to the original insult and begin to attack your quality of life.  
    Listen and learn:
    The purpose of pain in our bodies  When to medicate and when to ignore The confusing connection between pain and healing Why some people are prone to opioid abuse more than others Links

    12 Steps and Yoga with Nikki Myers

    12 Steps and Yoga with Nikki Myers

    In the 1980s, Nancy Reagan coined the term, “Just say no!” and spearheaded the social aspect of the so-called war on drugs. It didn’t work, nor have any of the dozens of public, private, and international efforts to curb the disease of despair. Things have become so much worse that today, almost every single person listening has a friend or family member affected by addiction. My guest on this week’s podcast is a recovered addict herself and uses yoga as part of an integrated 12-step program to support others.
    Listen and learn:
    The importance of support for addiction recovery The benefits of talk therapy vs. movement based therapy How trauma can feel like it’s stuck physically The integration of past, present and future self Links
