What Is The Role Of Opioids In The Treatment Of Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain has been at the center of the debate over how physicians can make a dent in opioid addiction. More than 100 million Americans suffering from chronic pain are waiting for a solution from physicians that can minimize the risk of becoming dependent on prescription painkillers. Research conducted by an independent panel might point to part of the answer: "individualized, patient-centric care." (Source: Forbes.com Healthcare News)

NFL Hall Of Famer Mike Ditka: I Wouldn't Want My Child To Play Football
NFL Hall of Famer Mike Ditka has dedicated his life to football. But if he had a son today, he wouldn’t want that child to do the same, according to a Saturday report by the Chicago Tribune. In an episode of “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” set to air on HBO on Tuesday, Ditka asks sports reporter Bryant Gumbel if he himself would want his child to play football. “I wouldn’t,” Gumbel says. “Would you?” “Nope,” Ditka replies. “I wouldn't. And my whole life was football. I think the risk is worse than the reward. I really do.” Ditka’s and Gumbel’s views are in line with those of fully half the ...

8 Ways To Harness The Power Of Boredom
"Down time" is a true rarity these days. When we finally find it, many of us exude sighs of relief at the opportunity to sit back, relax and do absolutely nothing. However, it doesn't take long for that wondrous feeling to transform into one of frustration and anxiety over our strangely empty plates -- we are bored. And we don't know what to do about it. Everyone experiences boredom, the desire yet inability to engage in an enjoyable activity, from time to time. Considered the (less appreciated) "sibling of down time," boredom feels inherently uncomfortable because we live in such a high-stimulus world that leads us to f...

Jennifer Aniston: 'Almost Just As Good To Be No. 1 Snubbed Than To Be Nominated'
It would be naïve to assume that as a top celebrity in Hollywood, Jennifer Aniston could get any role she wanted. But the actress revealed Friday that she was drawn to play a mourning addict in the upcoming film “Cake” because she had her own doubts about herself. “I needed to do it so I could prove to myself that I was able to do it. So I wasn’t sitting there frustrated that I wasn’t getting certain parts because they knew something I didn’t know -- which was that I couldn’t do it,” Aniston told The Huffington Post Friday afternoon in Los Angeles. Seated on a couch in a hotel suite at the Four Seasons, s...

A Small Act of Courage
The year 2015 has not begun quietly, as evidenced by the killings at Charlie Hebdo and the kosher market in France. This world we live in, as I am reminded by the headlines, is unstable. Living each day requires small and sometimes large acts of courage. This past Sunday, according to the NY Times, more than 40 world leaders marched in Paris "in solidarity... against the threat of Islamic extremism since the Sept. 11 attacks." Among those 40 world leaders were an unlikely pair - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and President Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority.

Cake Rings True
It often really concerns me that many people get their medical information from watching movies and television. That's because most shows are wildly medically inaccurate and truly misinform, especially in the arena of mental health. So I was particularly intrigued to watch Cake with Jennifer Aniston, which would be dealing with the subject of addiction. Besides being touchingly absorbing, Cake spells out that in reality ANYONE can develop a drug addiction, which is a painfully horrible way to live, often deadly and that it most often goes untreated. When we think of a drug addict, we tend not to think about young mothers,...

What is Toxic Shame?
When shame becomes toxic, it can ruin our lives. Everyone experiences shame at one time another. It’s an emotion with physical symptoms like any other that come and go, but when it’s severe, it can be extremely painful. Strong feelings of shame stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, causing a fight/flight/freeze reaction. We feel exposed and want to hide or react with rage, while feeling profoundly alienated from others and good parts of ourselves. We may not be able to think or talk clearly and be consumed with self-loathing, which is made worse because we’re unable to be rid of ourselves. We all have our own...

Report highlights the dangers of opioid painkillers
Whenever I read or write about the overuse of so-called opioid painkillers it is with mixed feelings. As a lifelong back-pain patient who once depended on them for pain relief, I appreciate the challenge posed by opioids to people in pain and their doctors. People in agonizing pain want it to stop, but opioids are often a poor long-term solution. Doctors want to help their patients, so they may prescribe opioids for extended periods despite well-founded reservations. At the same time, the epidemic of abuse of these painkillers has led to numerous deaths. Like many Americans, I know people whose lives were destroyed—who e...
