The Opioid Crisis

Drug-Free Pain Management
The opioid crisis that our world, our nation, and our communities are facing is incredibly devastating. Families are torn apart and lives ruined by something as simple as a pain pill. To me, this beckons the question: Is our pain emotional, intellectual, physical, or spiritual? The United States only makes up five percent of the world’s population, but we consume 80 percent of the world’s pain medication. Is it all back pain, or is it something greater? We’ll discuss why opioids are so addictive in nature and the risk factors associated with their consumption.

Ovarian and Prostate Cancer
We have likely all been touched by cancer at some point in our life. Two of the cancers that are specific to our gender are prostate for men and ovarian for women. While these cancers affect our reproductive organs, there is nothing sexy about it, but there is also nothing taboo about discussing it either. So often, cancer goes undetected due to lack of education. Today’s show is dedicated to these two cancers in hope of early detection and complete aversion of them. Tune in to a show that could prove to be life-changing for you or someone you love.

Stress is something we all deal with, but what’s happening inside of our bodies while we experience it? What about the effects of chronic stress? The new buzzword is cortisol, the stress hormone, but how does it interact with the rest of our physiology? Today Evelyn discusses healthy stress versus bad stress, how stress impacts our health, and stress management tips.

As we age, our physical appearance isn’t the only thing that changes. Our hormones, neurotransmitters, and nutrients all impact our insides as well as our outsides. One of the most talked about aspects of aging (aside from wrinkles and how to get rid of them) is menopause and andropause. Today Evelyn talks about what’s happening inside the body and how we don’t have to suffer through hot flashes, low libido, and mood swings.

On today’s show we explore Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). While back-to-school time can be a sigh of relief for some parents, for others, it is stressful—dreading parent-teacher conferences about problems in focusing, staying seated, or being disruptive in the classroom. What’s happening in the brain? Lab testing is important in understanding the cause.

Types of Depression
We hear the term depressed used often. With an incredible amount of antidepressant prescriptions being written each year, of course the word is mainstream. After all, it is projected to be the second leading cause of medical disability by the year 2020. But are we really depressed, and if so, what are the factors in our brain contributing to depression? What are the cognitive thoughts that may perpetuate the depressed mood? And, most important, what type of depression are we talking about? Our host addresses these questions from all four pillars of health: the physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual.

Types of Testing
More than likely, everyone has had a blood test at some point in life. What about saliva and urine testing? Have you ever been curious as to why your doctor may order one of those tests instead of blood? On this week’s show, our host explains how blood, saliva, and urine each test for different things, and why different types of tests are important for measuring wellness on a spectrum rather than strictly diagnosing a disease.

What is gluten, and why does everyone want to be free of it? This latest dietary trend is one that has created a niche for itself, but does everyone need to steer clear of gluten? On this week’s show, our host explains what gluten is, what it does in the body, and how you can decide if it’s something that should remain in your diet.
