• Naturopathic Considerations for Musculoskeletal Pain

Speaker: Kenneth Proefrock, NMD Physical pain is the most common reason for patients to seek medical attention. It is also the most common reason for them to continue seeking medical attention when the usual routes of pharmaceutical intervention fail them. If a drug is able to resolve one’s pain in the moment, it seldom addresses the reasons for that pain and is unable to keep the pain away without successively stronger dosages, until, eventually, the drug doesn’t work any longer. Continued experience of pain pushes us to a contraction within ourselves, away from the pain, often at a high cost mentally, emotionally, and physically. This is an arena where natural therapeutics like botanical medicine, dietary therapy, exercise, and meditation can make a difference. We discuss adaptogenic botanicals like Aralia, Eleutherococcus, Cissus, and Schisandra, as well as specific therapeutic plant medicines like Piscidia, Mitrogyna, Cannabis, Pedicularis, Dicentra, Leonotis, Leonurus, and Glycyrrhiza.
