    8 Oct 2014 | 7:39 pm
    Ezekiel Emanuel, bioethicist and brother to Chicago mayorRahm Emanuel, wrote an article for The Atlantic Monthly titled " Why I Hope to Die at 75 "that is generating a lot of, shall we say, discussion. He is not advocating the legalization of euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide, both of which he has long and admirably opposed, fearing that their legalization would compromise treatment for chronic pain and depression and would result in non-voluntary euthanasia of mentally incompetent patients or those whose conditions others view as constituting a life not worth living.

    14 Oct 2014 | 8:43 am
    Written by: Brittany Nicole It is rare that we see a patient come into the ER that is not experiencing pain to some degree.  Pain is the body’s way of telling us that something is not right. Whether chronic or acute, when pain becomes unbearable our first instinct is to find relief. But where is the best place to seek help when the pain strikes? Unfortunately this question is best answered on a case by case basis as there are numerous factors that come into play.  It is not a question that should be taken lightly either, as pain (whether an acute episode, or an worsening of a chronic…

    Chronic pain is a major public health problem, which is estimated to affect more than 100 million people in the United States and about 20–30% of the population worldwide. The prevalence of persistent pain is expected to rise in the near future as the incidence of associated diseases (including diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disorders, arthritis, and cancer) increases in the aging U.S. population. Opioids are powerful analgesics that are commonly used and found to be effective for many types of pain. However, opioids can produce significant side effects, including constipation, nausea,…

Then imagine that his or her pain could be relieved by an inexpensive drug, but the drug was unavailable. Each day, about six million terminal cancer patients around the world suffer that fate because they do not have access to morphine, the gold standard of cancer pain control. The World Health Organization has stated that access to pain treatment, including morphine, is an essential human right. Most suffering because of a lack of morphine is felt in the poorer regions of the globe. About 90 percent…

  • Try this Unconventional Trick to Shatter Your Mental Barriers

    1 Oct 2014 | 6:30 am
    Over the years, I’ve spotted an interesting trend.  It’s a pattern I see showing up in people’s bodies, in their brains and it’s pervasive in our culture. At the core of this trend is an insidious, yet tiny, belief that keeps people struggling upstream like salmon in a ladder.  It sabotages efforts to lose weight and get healthy, to alleviate pain, and, ultimately to be happy. Shifting this belief from the false to the true is no bigger of a switch from believing that the sun rises and sets to understanding that we’re traveling around the sun on a giant…

    I used to think I couldn’t have it all.  At least, I couldn’t have it all right now. I hung my hat on someday, put my head down and worked hard.  I focused on the to-do list, on getting done the things I had to do before doing what I wanted to do. Hello nose, meet grindstone. The dreams, the wishes, the follies of youth were fanciful desires dashed on the rocks of reality. The excuses were plentiful. Not now.  I don’t have the money.  The time isn’t right.  People like me can’t do things like that.  I don’t know if I can. Truth is?  You don’t…

I was interested in yoga’s take on a cultural epidemic. I was shocked to see how packed the class was. In fact, it was so overfull that I was only able to attend the first day. “Look around you,” the instructor told us, “and see how many of us are living this double life. Clearly, we have a problem.” And we do. According to the National Institute for Mental Health, about 18% of adults…
  • What if Fixing Your Bad Posture is Doing More Harm than Good?

    Conventional wisdom says that if you have bad posture, you should work on it. Make it better. Improve it. In short, it’s time to go to the mechanic and have your body “fixed.” But what if fixing your bad posture is just making the problem worse? What if strengthening those back muscles to pull your rounded shoulders back into place is making your body want to hunch them even more? What if stretching your quads to correct your lower cross syndrome and silence your grouchy (and highly vocal) back is just increasing the strain on your spine? That would seem odd. I mean, if the…
