NE - The Art and Science of “Health” – The Future of the Hemp Plant as Medicine

This will be a live virtual event offered during the NE 2022 Regional - Virtual Event.

Helping our patients with their pain, sleep and mental health issues continues to be one of the biggest opportunities for healthcare providers today. Our current healthcare system is struggling to address the very essence of what it means to be human and what it means to be ‘healthy’. The first known records of the cannabis plant being utilized for medicinal and healing purposes dates back to 4500 BC.  The landscape of our understanding of cannabinoid science and its role in our overall health is changing every day. In this talk, a review of the research and therapeutic applications for cannabinoid medicine will be presented objectively in the areas of pain, sleep, and mental health. You will be challenged to think outside the box on your current beliefs about physical and mental health; and how patient preference, clinical evidence and scientific research all play a key role in patient centered care. This talk is a refreshing reminder that for thousands of years, how we cared for ourselves and each other was not ‘alternative medicine’; it was essential medicine.

My flat feet have been great teachers. As an athletic teenager I suffered from Achilles tendonitis, multiple ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis, knee pain, and sacroiliac pain. I was fascinated with the human body and how it moves from a very young age and pursued my passion graduating from the National University of Health Sciences (NUHS) with a Doctorate in Chiropractic in 2001. While in private chiropractic practice in Denver, much of my practice was focused on the treatment of common running, cycling and cumulative trauma sports related ailments.

My feet aren’t so flat anymore; they are much stronger and have a visual arch to them. Most importantly, they take me where I need to go – pain free.
