Michael Pollan is one of our most revelatory explorers of the interaction between the human and natural worlds — especially the plants with which we have, as he says, co-evolved — from food to caffeine to psychedelics. In this episode of our series, The Future of Hope, Wintering's Katherine May draws him out on the burgeoning human inquiry and science to which he's now given himself over — the transformative applications of altered states for healing trauma and depression, for end-of-life care — and the thrilling matter of grasping what consciousness is for. This is an informative, intriguing, utterly uncategorizable conversation.You may know Katherine May from her On Being conversation with Krista about “wintering” as a season in the natural world — and a recurrent season in every human life. She too operates out of a deep curiosity about the human mind — the remarkable complexity of mental states and well-being — informed in part by her own welcome mid-life diagnosis of autism and her love of cold-water swimming. Her books of fiction and memoir include: Wintering: The Power of Rest and Retreat in Difficult Times, The Electricity of Every Living Thing, and Burning Out. She is also the editor of an anthology of essays about motherhood, called The Best, Most Awful Job. Her podcast is The Wintering Sessions.Michael Pollan is a professor at the University of California Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism. His many bestselling books include The Omnivore's Dilemma, In Defense of Food, How to Change Your Mind: What the New Science of Psychedelics Teaches Us About Consciousness, Dying, Addiction, Depression, and Transcendence, and most recently, This Is Your Mind on Plants. In 2020, he co-founded the UC Berkeley Center for the Science of Psychedelics.Find the transcript for this show at onbeing.org.

He has gone on to use a “harm reduction” approach to addressing his alcohol and drug abuse, and he explains here what this has looked like in his life.The thing I love about Shain's attitude is that he is all about being gentle with yourself, being patient, and giving yourself the compassion that you need as you figure this stuff out. in the episode we discuss: -His experience of growing up in a bar (the family business) and how this shaped his approach to drinking-Being drawn to bar and club culture because it felt like “home”-Alcohol as a form of “therapy” for people who don't have access to mental health services-Choosing not to judge his past behavior – and how all our experiences make us who we are-Different substances he's used and the different impact they have had on him-Asking: who am I without booze? And who do I want to be?-Being a “party person” as part of his professional persona-Why it takes time, trial, and error to find your way as a non-drinker-The difference between being an alcoholic and somebody who sometimes abuses alcohol-Why confronting his childhood trauma was the only way to address his substance abuse-Why sobriety is easier than moderation (and why moderation never really works)-Why navigating shame has been a foundational piece of his sober curious journeyYou can connect with Shain in the "Sober Curious Book" Facebook group and follow him on Instagram @shainoffoolsBig thanks to Grüvi for partnering on this episode.

In the Emergency Management of Chronic Pain podcast, Duncan Grossman and Reuben Strayer discuss how and why patients with chronic pain present to the ED. Managing patients with chronic pain is challenging and often it feels like these patients present to the ED during every shift. But… is it as common as it feels? Statistics suggest that 20% of American adults suffer from chronic pain. Why? Well, opioids are both the disease and the cure. Opioids are effective for managing acute pain. However, when they are used for (even) more than a couple of days they can start to cause pain. Therefore, we have to understand the spectrum of opioid benefit vs harm. Reuben and Duncan discuss a framework that accounts for the relationship between chronic pain and opioid use. Noting that each patient presents a unique challenge. Take for example, the patient who is on daily, low dose opioids but is otherwise unaffected by their pain medication. Or, the patient who has chronic pain but doesn't take opioids. We need to be careful here as these patients can be more susceptible to developing an addiction from prescribed opioids due to their ongoing pain. What about the patient who takes opioids daily but is buying them off the street... Reuben takes us through some strategies for helping all of these patients. One such strategy is to talk to the prescribers. We need to help these patients by encouraging their prescribers to take the reins and to move the needle from opioid harm to opioid benefit. Tune in as Duncan Grossman grills Reuben Strayer on chronic pain in patients, how to manage them and how to help them. For more like this, head to our podcast page #CodaPodcast

Discussing treating substance use with medication, Zach and Michael interview Dr. Jason Kirby, the Chief Medical Officer for Landmark Recovery and Praxis by Landmark Recovery. Because every psychoactive substance releases a certain amount of dopamine, it is to be expected that anyone who suffers from a substance use disorder will not feel good when they abstain from the drug, especially in the case of opioid addiction. The motivation to seek-out the dopamine high is as dangerous as Russian roulette. This is why timing is everything, and treating the craving with pharmacotherapy gives those who are addicted a chance at survival. Dr. Jason Kirby is an expert in population health policy and is dual board-certified in addiction medicine and family medicine. Growing up in a world of addiction, and experiencing addiction himself, Dr. Kirby speaks to listeners in both layman's and medical terms about how substances affect the limbic system, about recovery, and about the many options available for tackling a substance use disorder.

How The Orphan Drug System Has Been Gamed By Drug Companies  - by Gerald PosnerGerald Posner •           https://www.posner.com/•           Book - Pharma: Greed, Lies, and the Poisoning of America  The author of thirteen acclaimed books, including New York Times nonfiction bestsellers Case Closed, Why America Slept and God's Bankers. Posner was a finalist for the Pulitzer in History. “A merciless pit bull of an investigator” concluded the Chicago Tribune. The New York Times said his latest book (2020), PHARMA, was “a withering and encyclopedic indictment of a drug industry that often seems to prioritize profits over patients…[it] reads like a pharmaceutical version of cops and robbers.”From Law to WritingPosner was one of the youngest attorneys (23) ever hired by Cravath, Swaine & Moore. A Political Science major, he was a Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, where he was also a national debating champion. At Hastings Law School, he was an Honors Graduate and was the Law Review's Associate Executive Editor. He was a litigation associate at the Wall Street law firm of Cravath, Swaine & Moore before leaving in 1981 to co-found Posner & Ferrara, a New York public interest law firm. Several years of a pro bono legal representation on behalf of surviving twins of Nazi experiments at the Auschwitz death camp led him to coauthor his first book in 1986, MENGELE: The Complete Story, a bestselling and critically acclaimed biography of the infamous Nazi “Angel of Death,” Dr. Josef Mengele. Read a profile on Gerald on how the Mengele book led to him to leave the law. Publishers Weekly explains how he changed from being a Wall Street lawyer to a bestselling nonfiction author. In the past, he was a regular panelist on History CENTER, the History Channel's Sunday current events program. He has been a freelance writer for many news magazines, and a regular contributor to NBC, the History Channel, CNN, FOX News, CBS, and MSNBC.

In this podcast, we take a deeper dive into the brain of the alcoholic and addict and review the importance of recovering one's spirituality as well.We learn that:Science has identified certain regions of the brain that account for dysfunctional, alcoholic thinking, even when the addict or alcoholic is not using or drinking.In addition, this aspect of brain chemistry is closely aligned with short-term gratification, heedless to consequences, characteristic of alcoholics and addicts.Even a rational expert like Debra Jay understands that one's spiritual life becomes degraded when addiction enters one's life.Restoration of one's spirituality should be the major goal to recovering one's soul and one's life. That is the main goal of 12-step programs after the alcohol and drugs are put away for good.

What are the most common alternatives to opioids and how do they work? - Dr. Jason Jones Elizabeth City NC, Chiropractor There is a growing number of deaths and hospitalizations associated with the use of Opioids for managing pains. In fact, there are over 40,000 deaths a year across the US.  You must have heard of the term “Opioid epidemic” as it is commonly thrown around in the news. This is mainly due to opioid overdose, dependence, and addiction which is prevalent in the US. Hence, a lot of people are now switching to alternative options that are less dangerous and also very much effective in managing pains from post-surgical operations, injuries, osteoarthritis, and many other conditions. Here are some common alternatives to opioids: Chiropractic Chiropractic is a natural treatment measure that helps you get immediate and long-term relief from pain. It liberates you from the confinement of using prescription medications like opioids, which come with many side effects. Chiropractic manipulation addresses the source of the pain, unlike opioids which only reduce the pain for a while. So it is advisable to opt for chiropractic instead of using addictive opioids. Exercise Exercising is a good measure to tackle chronic pains. It is one of the first treatment measures you should try under the guidance of your physician or physical therapist. Some options include of exercise include core strengthening exercises, aerobic exercises, and stretching and flexibility exercises. Meditation and mindfulness Chronic pains can strain you both emotionally and physically. And most times, using opioids will only leave you with many side effects without dealing with the psychological effect of pains. Using mediation and mindfulness practices like yoga, however, have been shown to be effective in keeping your mind away from the pain. These measures help you manage the depression, frustration, and irritability that come with chronic pain. Yoga also increases your strength and flexibility. You learn how to relax your muscles, which helps when pains cause you to tense up. And the good part is you don't have to deal with any side effects or long-term effects associated with opioids. Diet Your diet can also help you manage chronic pain conditions. Some good examples of anti-inflammatory foods you can add to your diet include asparagus, omega-3 fatty acids, cranberries, cherries, and soy products. You can speak with your doctor to get recommendations on the best foods to add to your diet to manage pains without any side effects. However, you should avoid diets high in refined sugars, Trans fats, and processed foods, as they are highly inflammatory and have been implicated in worsening many pain conditions. Also, you need to stay hydrated always as dehydration can worsen your pains. Drink an adequate amount of water throughout the day and avoid caffeinated drinks, like tea and coffee. In summary, you can effectively manage and treat pains naturally without having to use opioids. It makes sense to try measures like chiropractic as it is a proven natural treatment measure for joint and spinal pain. Spinal manipulation effectively treats both chronic and spinal pains. And even the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests chiropractic methods for pain management. You can consult Dr. Jason Jones in our Chiropractic office at Elizabeth City, NC, to get the best chiropractic care for your chronic or acute pains.

The negative side effects of opioids have caused many people to seek out alternatives for pain and other conditions. One safe alternative that has been found to be effective for pain is natural supplements. These products do not come with the risk of side effects, addiction, or drug interaction. Without much ado, here are some natural supplements that are an alternative to opioids: Turmeric Turmeric is a spice that contains the compound curcumin – an antioxidant that protects the body from free radical molecules. Turmeric supplements have been shown to relieve inflammation and pains without any form of side effects. You can add it to juices, smoothies, or curries to enjoy its benefits. Cloves Cloves have been used traditionally as a home remedy to relieve pains.  This supplement contains an active ingredient called eugenol, which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. And they may help relieve pains associated with arthritic inflammation, headaches, and toothaches. You can also use cloves as part of a topical pain reliever. You can find clove supplements in powder or capsule forms. You can also get clove oil, which may be used as a temporary treatment option for easing toothache pains before getting to see a dentist. Ginger Studies have shown that ginger may help to modestly reduce muscle pains from running and resistance exercises. You can add raw ginger to your smoothies or teas. You can also take ginger supplements to get relief from pains. Magnesium Magnesium can be found in bones, yogurt, beef, spinach, pumpkin, and rice. This mineral plays a huge role in many chemical reactions in the body. Taking it in the supplement form has been shown by studies to help painful chronic conditions, such as lower back pain.   This supplement also reduces the need for pain medications, such as opioids, after a surgical procedure. Willow Bark This supplement has been used for centuries as a natural pain reliever. It originates from the willow tree and contain an active ingredient called salicin. Just like aspirin, willow bark helps to reduce inflammation, swelling, and fever. It can also be used for muscle pain, headaches, and menstrual cramps. Devil's Claw Research has shown that taking a daily dose of devil's claw extract produces effects similar to NSAIDs. This makes it an effective solution to pain, without the side effects associated with opioids. You can either take devil's claw alone or add it as an ingredient in products, such as herbal teas. Aquamin This supplement contains magnesium, calcium, and other vital minerals, and it is known to relieve inflammation and osteoarthritis pain. Aquamin contains the necessary nutrients for bone health and they are perfect supplements for vegans.     Boswellia This supplement may help to reduce inflammation and pains associated with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. It has anti-inflammatory properties, which makes it a potential painkiller. These supplements highlighted above are good alternatives to opioids. You don't have to suffer from the negative side effects of pain medications, including dependence and addiction. These supplements are natural products that can help manage and treat both chronic and acute pains. However, it is important that you speak with your doctor before adding any supplement to your routine. You can consult Dr. Jason Jones in our chiropractic office at Elizabeth City, NC, to learn more about natural supplements and measures that are effective for pain management and treatment.

Welcome to episode 17 of The Way Out Is In: The Zen Art of Living, a podcast series mirroring Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh's deep teachings of Buddhist philosophy: a simple yet profound methodology for dealing with our suffering, and for creating more happiness and joy in our lives. In this episode, the presenters, Zen Buddhist monk Brother Phap Huu and lay practitioner and journalist Jo Confino, are joined by special guest, entrepreneur and author Lindsay Levin, to discuss wise leadership and new ways of creating change and harmony in turbulent times. “Serial entrepreneur” Lindsay Levin founded Leaders' Quest in 2001 as her “last startup”, to help leaders and companies align profit with purpose. Her work explores collective humanity through vulnerability and listening. She also launched the Leaders' Quest Foundation to build leadership capacity in grassroots communities. Her passion for finding common ground between diverse perspectives and opposing voices prompted her to co-lead the launch of the alliance Future Stewards, after the Paris Climate Agreement. Her book, Invisible Giants: Changing the World One Step at a Time (2013), is a celebration of the everyday heroes who have inspired her to ask tough questions, and to strive to be the change she wants to see in the world. Together, all three also talk about: the balance between urgency and patience; purpose; polarisation; and becoming agents of change. And: at a planetary level, how do we know when to slow down and when to speed up? Lindsay Levin further shares her relationship with the teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh and the Plum Village community, and about: working with leaders; dealing with competing interests and egos; spiritual values in the business world; self-awareness; tolerance in the climate movement; listening to others' lives and widening circles of compassion; responsibility; the gap between cleverness and wisdom; ‘quests'; collective and individual development; planetary well-being; and honouring anger and grief. Brother Phap Huu talks about his own experience of dealing with disagreements in the community as abbot of Upper Hamlet, and shares stories about Thich Nhat Hanh as a leader. He also delves into the importance of listening in leadership; applying Buddhist teachings into daily life; bringing together conflicting parties; discriminative mindsets; inclusiveness; adapting to change; avoiding burnout; nourishing compassion; learning to be in stillness; and not postponing ‘simple opportunities'.Jo shares the story of a company which lost its way after taking the space to create and reflect away from its staff. He delves into the pressure of short-termism; Indigenous insight into decision-making; and being observers of our own selves. And: is time money? All three share the simple routines they use to nourish themselves in what they do.The episode ends with a short meditation on gratefulness, guided by Brother Phap Huu.

We are seeds of goodness, but also seeds of evil. And we have to help people see the goodness inside of them. Whatever suffering there is, we have to be there because we can be the light of hope.” “Go into action and lead by example.” “Thay created a day of mindfulness where we all come together as a community: we sit together, we listen to a teaching or have a sharing and sing songs, we cook for each other, we help each other relax. And for maybe six hours, we don’t talk about the work, because there’s a side of us that we have to nourish to keep our aspiration alive, and to continue the work that we aspire to do. This is what we call taking care of our well-being. And this is very important in the teachings of Buddhism.” “There’s a beautiful simplicity to Thay’s teachings; remembering that it comes out of a deep, practiced understanding of suffering makes it applicable to any situation, to any of the challenges we may feel we’re facing. You are not [experiencing anything] harder than what he went through – and there’s a great power to that, which is very exciting.” “We learn to flow as a river. And the river is always moving. This image really helped me shed my ego, because Thay teaches us that we all need to learn to be a drop of water in this river. And because we are part of the river, there are moments when we can help lead at the front. And there are moments when we are in the middle, when we can help hold the front and back together; and sometimes we are at the back. The young can help push elders forward by using their voice, their aspirations, sharing with us, with the changes of the world. And so listening is very important for leadership and for growth.” “One of the fundamental teachings in Buddhism is that man is not our enemy; it is ignorance, it is hatred, it is discrimination.” “You change the world by how you show up, even in the hardest of circumstances, even in a very conflicted situation; how you turn up to that conversation or that situation changes the outcome. And maybe you can’t change everything, but you can change the outcome; that’s the nature of being interconnected, of living in this interconnected world. That's the nature of interbeing.” “For me, one of the [most important] images is that we’re all – I am, at least – a tiny grain of sand in this incredibly beautiful universe. But I want to be a good grain of sand. So how do I make the most of that opportunity?” “If you’re not open, then you won’t be able to learn. You won’t be able to contribute because you’re not generous.” “Thay teaches us that, ‘Sometimes we have to learn from our ancestors, and our ancestors include animals. When an animal gets hurt, what does he or she do? They know to stop hunting, to stop looking for a mate, and instead to rest, sleep for many days if needed, and to take care of the wound.'” “We have to let the surface of the water be still for it to really reflect.” “The notion that time is money, I think we have to change that story. Time is life. I think that is the truth, because in our teaching of Buddhism, one of the core teachings of the Buddha is that this moment, here and now, carries the past and is building the future.” “If we want peace in the world, we have to know how to cultivate peace in ourselves. If we want healing in the world, we have to also heal ourselves – or else we’re just going to keep running after an idea.” “Peace in oneself, peace in the world: that sense of peace isn’t ‘I’ve solved everything', but that I recognize what’s going on.” “Looking at, admiring, and respecting the incredible wisdom of nature, and the intelligent life that is all around us and the rhythm that it follows, I find that immediately calming. You can sit and watch a tree very carefully and see the tree breathing because of how the branches or the leaves are moving. Just watch a leaf and see that. So that’s something that I can come back to at any time; no matter where I am, I can usually find some part of nature to touch.” “We’re a clever species: we invent stuff. We fix stuff. We figure things out. We’ve harnessed science in so many ways. And so it's easy to fool yourself into thinking that we are becoming ever, ever smarter. Well, we’re not, and we’re certainly not becoming ever wiser. If you were to plot our wisdom or our individual or collective development, it’s certainly not a graph that’s shooting off the top of the page. It’s more of a slow incline. And I think part of the urgency, pain, fear, and uniqueness that we’re feeling right now is because there’s a gap between how fast the world is changing – in many ways as a result of our actions, some of which have come from clever things that we figured out how to do, often with unintended consequences – and our own capacity, our inner wisdom, our ability to connect, to deeply appreciate our existence, what existence is, what it means to be alive, and what it means to be to be part of life.” “I often talked to business leaders about this: you’re not going to be able to keep up by running faster. There is no way that, by running ever faster, you are going to catch the pace of change. So in response to that urgency, including urgency over dramatic issues, the importance of justice and planetary well-being and so forth, we actually, perversely, have to slow down. We have to develop the capacity for reflection, for introspection, for developing our sense of connection; for all the things that you teach so beautifully here at Plum Village.” “I’m really hopeful because I do think there is a waking-up going on. A lot of things are changing and I think we are waking up, individually and collectively. Maybe not fast enough, but change is happening, and in that process we need to extend to one another. We need to trust one another. People who have [the necessary] skills, which I absolutely do not have, are going to need to be part of designing the new systems that we’re moving towards.” “Anger needs to be expressed. It’s very real. It’s really valid. It needs to be honored. Grief needs to be honored and valued and heard and respected. And then we have to keep moving; we have to integrate that and look to the other side of it. Why are we in such grief and fear and pain and anger? Well, it’s because we love life. It’s because life is beautiful. Life is an incredible gift.” “In Indigenous wisdom, there’s the idea of seven generations: that every decision you take, you should think back seven generations in the past and seven generations into the future to say, ‘Where does this idea sit within historical context and what impact will it have in the far future?’ And yet, people are in panic mode. They’re not even thinking one generation ahead. People say, ‘Oh yes, I recognize that I need to do things for my children’, but I almost don’t believe that. People don’t act on it. In part because they are locked into this system where everyone acts the same way – so everyone supports each other in being in denial.” “We are all leaders. This was an empowerment that our teacher gave us. When we learn to come back to mindfulness, concentration, and insight or wisdom, we all have an opportunity to lead our life, to be mindful. We have a chance to transform our lives, to recognize the habits that lead us down a path that may not give happiness, that may bring us more suffering; to have agency for our own transformation.” “Thay teaches us that you don’t have to wait to be an example to change the world after 20, 30 years of practice; today, as you practice, if you’re able to smile, that smile can change somebody’s energy just by causing them to recognize your freshness, your way of being present for someone, or your stability. You’re listening to them with your full attention; that is also leadership, that is telling the other person, ‘I am here for you.'”

Patrick Radden Keefe is an award-winning staff writer at The New Yorker and the bestselling author of Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Dynasty. In this episode, Patrick tells the story of the Sackler family and Purdue Pharma - makers of the pain management drug OxyContin, providing the backdrop for the ensuing opioid epidemic and public health crisis. He reveals the implicit and sometimes explicit corruption of all parties involved in the development, approval, and marketing of OxyContin, leading to a cascade of unintended consequences including addiction and death. He explains the unfortunate lack of accountability for the current crisis, as well as what it all means for those with legitimate pain management needs. Finally, he examines the difficult path ahead towards finding a solution.
