In this episode, Elizabeth, a chronic pain management specialist, sheds light on the nature of chronic pain and the dangers of addictive substances often prescribed to manage it.
What is chronic pain?
Kipp begins by differentiating between chronic and acute pain. Chronic pain is any physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual discomfort that is felt for 15 days out of 30 for three months or more. She explains how the brain perceives a broken bone and a broken heart as the same. It simply registers, “it hurts.” This confusion results from the brain’s alterations due to prolonged exposure to pain.
Chronic pain changes the brain.
She points out that chronic pain fundamentally changes the brain, creating confusion, chaos, and a distinct negative emotional component. It becomes essential to acknowledge these transformations when attempting to heal the brain.
The harmful side effects of opiates and benzodiazepines
Kipp critically discusses the effects of opioids and benzodiazepines, substances commonly used for pain management. She asserts that they don’t promote healing but merely mask the symptoms. She underlines their harmful side effects. These include dehydration, depressed breathing, and digestive system paralysis. These effects hinder the body’s natural healing processes. Furthermore, they pose the risk of addiction.
Drawing from personal experience
Drawing from her personal experience, Kipp emphasizes the detrimental effects of these substances, having been on opioids and benzodiazepines for over three decades herself. In this thought-provoking episode, Kipp urges a reevaluation of the conventional approach to chronic pain management, emphasizing the importance of understanding the fundamental changes in the brain and seeking treatments that truly aid healing.
