Dr. Nick, The Incrementalist
In this episode, Dr. Nick looks at mind-body therapies to reduce the need for medication, in particular opioids. A meta-analysis study published by The Journal of the American Medical Association (@JAMANetwork) earlier this month, compares mindful techniques and opioid consumption (specifically pain relief.) The researchers reviewed evidence from over 60 studies with more than 6000 people looking at a range of therapies including meditation, guided imagery, hypnosis, and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
