Can a Holistic Herbal and Diet Plan Kick Addictions

Can a Holistic Herbal and Diet Plan Kick Addictions?

Write Your Way to Better Health: the Physical Benefits of Journaling

How can we improve our health and heal our diseases? After studying this question for a number of years, I’m convinced that two key factors are effective stress management and recovery from emotional trauma.

Their doctors are fearful too—of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) arresting them for prescribing “too many” opioids, or losing their licenses for similar reasons.  New “voluntary” prescribing guidelines published by the CDC in March 2016 appear to have exacerbated this problem, as many pain patient advocates had warned it would. Regardless of the arguments for and against the safety and effectiveness of opioids for treatment of chronic pain, abrupt discontinuation of opioids is a cruel and counterproductive practice. After a week or two of administration, the human body adapts to the presence of...
