ilaudid and oxycodone are both prescription opioids. Opioids are a group of strong pain relieving drugs, which includes morphine. These drugs lessen the strength of pain signals that reach the brain and affect your emotional response to pain and as we all know are over prescribed. Follow Dr. Larson on his hike & learn where he talks about having options for pain management and our health in general.

The choices that you make today determine your health for a lifetime. Good news in one respect, you get a fresh start every day to increase your longevity and quality of life. DR. CHAD LARSON

In episode 19, Dr. Larson discusses:

  • Many people think that they only have one health care option, but the truth is that they have many tools at their disposal
  • Although sometimes necessary for acute illnesses or injuries, often, medications are prescribed for the wrong use and in the wrong ways
  • There are times when medications are initially used to alleviate an illness or injury, but really end up creating a bigger problem due to their long term effects
  • Unfortunately, there isn’t always a quick or easy fix, but finding the appropriate health care tool is critical for your overall health and well-being
  • All too often, things like medication and surgery are used when there are other alternative procedures or medical tools that are safer and more beneficial
  • Things like Prolotherapy instead of medication is just one example of an alternative way to fix joint pain through non-surgical joint regeneration
  • The problem is that not many health professionals think “outside the box”, which leaves patients feeling as if their options are limited when they actually aren’t
  • Tools like nutrition, diet, and rest, are sometimes much better than any medication that a physician can prescribe
  • Medications are a marvel that saves lives every day, but they aren’t always the answer
  • They also don’t come without side effects that can sometimes be long term and create a bigger health problem than you started with
  • Your future health is determined by the choices that you make on a daily basis
  • The good news is that every day you have the choice to make good choices for a healthy future
  • That is why it is so important to make each day a do-over to an excellent quality of life and good health for a lifetime through making good choices
