In this week’s Stronger Than Autoimmune episode, I discuss chronic pain with Dr. Afton Hassett. A subject that autoimmune warriors know all too well. Dr. Afton L. Hassett is an Associate Professor and Director of Pain and Opioid Research in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Michigan. She is a principal investigator at the Chronic Pain & Fatigue Research Center who has over $14M of research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Viewed as a leader in the field of chronic pain and resilience, she recently gave the Keynote address at the 2023 Pain Consortium Symposium on Advances in Pain Research for the NIH. While studying established treatments for chronic pain and developing new approaches is her passion, her frustration is that exciting research discoveries rarely make it to the people who could benefit the most. Thus, Afton’s mission was to write Chronic Pain Reset to bring evidence-based strategies from research and academic medical settings directly to people who live with chronic pain with the hope that they will gain new tools to lead more rewarding lives with less pain.

I hope you enjoyed the interview. As an autoimmune coach, I know tracking what you do in a daily basis makes a big contribution to symptoms and flares. If you are

I started taking Bio-Avail Myco from Adapt Naturals. It’s a blend of 8 organic mushrooms—including reishi, chaga, lion’s mane, and cordyceps—in a convenient capsule form. I get the benefits of mushrooms—more energy, sharper focus, and stronger immunity—without having to give up my DELICIOUS java!
For a limited time, the folks at Adapt Naturals are
offering my audience 15% off their first order.
