Talk: "How Pain Can Lead to Health Promotion: A Bigger Conversation Than Just Treating Pain"

Opiates, originally from the herb Opium Poppy, have historically worked exceptionally well to reduce pain; however, they have done little to enhance health. We can have a bigger conversation about pain, including what it's teaching us, when we turn our attention to medicinal plants, nutrition and behavioral changes which enhance our health rather than compromise it.

Presented by: Holli Richey, LCSW, RH,
