Speaker: Jennifer Williams, PhD, DACM, LAc This presentation includes current evidence on chronic pain mechanisms, opioid addiction pathways, and plant-based recovery. It includes the emerging evidence linking emotional trauma to chronic conditions and the disruption of the pain regulating system. We focus on commonly used substances of overuse, including prescribed medications and other substances (including nicotine, cannabis, alcohol, methamphetamines, opium, cocaine and heroin). We present the botanical and nutritional therapies useful in managing chronic physical pain, emotional pain, and addiction, with strategies for recovery without harm. Herbs for treatment include corydalis, notoginseng, red ginseng, carthamus, frankincense, Salvia miltiorrhiza, kudzu rehmannia, holy basil and many others. Catalog Number 20ME09
