Turn Pain into Power: Healing Chronic Pain, Trauma & Addiction with Elizabeth Kipp

If you’re someone who has lived through chronic pain, addiction (including food addiction), body dysmorphia, or trauma you know it can suck you into its black hole, hindering your relationships, career, and personal goals.​ You can turn pain into power and heal.

Recovery is possible

But recovery is possible, and healing is real. I was honored to be a guest of Sarah Haas, Women’s Weight Release Expert & Body Love Coach, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Certified Personal Trainer, speaker, and cancer survivor, on the latest episode of the Boss Body Podcast.

My story of recovery and how I turn pain into power

I share my story of how through multiple surgeries, persistent pain, and more than three decades of opiate addiction, I was able to create transformation and lasting recovery by addressing the root causes of my issues – namely unresolved trauma.

Key takeaways are:

  • The deep-seated impact of trauma on addiction and chronic pain
  • The importance of treating the root causes for successful chronic pain treatment
  • The importance of mind-body harmony in recovering from trauma, addiction, and chronic pain
  • The value of community support in facilitating a holistic healing process
  • Diverse techniques and disciplines to heal from trauma, addiction, and chronic pain
  • Learn how to turn pain into power

“Addiction is really the result of unresolved trauma because we’re looking for a way to soothe, to find safety.” – Elizabeth Kipp
