    The Wisdom of Pain

    in Health

    All pain has its purpose. Sometimes there is an obvious cause and effect and others the meaning and purpose of pain is illusive to the naked eye. This show will help us to turn pain into a journey of self-love. Think of your body as a computer in which all information is stored. You (as your mind), are the person operating your computer. Sometimes your computer expresses symptoms of a virus or crashes from too many programs running because you haven't updated your software to the lastest model. Our intention for this Heart of the Matter Show is to use The LifeLine to awaken a new understanding of pain and even more, reprogram the old subconscious programs. Our journey together will reveal the invisible truth of physical pain and as a natural by-product of the process itself,  heal it. Quickly and naturally.

    in Health

    Urologist and chronic pelvic pain specialist, Dr. Jeannette Potts, joins us from the West Coast today as she discusses her work within the field of pelvic pain in men. She will specifically be discussing the role of Prostatitis and Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome. She will also discuss why she chooses to focus on men and the issue around gendered medicine.


    After practicing at the Cleveland Clinic's Glickman Urological Institute for 15 years, Dr. Potts realized she needed to find a better way to provide more holistic care to men suffering from Urological Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndromes (UCPPS). During her tenure at the Cleveland Clinic she became more subspecialized, focusing her work in prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain, and psychosexual well-being. Dr. Potts was named among the "best Urologists" in North East Ohio, by Cleveland Magazine.


    She has been a passionate collaborator with the NIH and the IPCN, to advance research and care of patients suffering from UCPPS. She has published numerous articles in urology and family medicine and has given over 100 lectures on UCPPS and related topics, as an invited speaker at medical and urological conferences world-wide.


    Dr. Potts is Assistant Clinical Instructor, on the faculty of Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and University Hospitals of Cleveland.

    Low Back Pain with Dr Owen Williamson

    in Health

    Low back pain is among the most common chronic pain conditions in Canada. Four out of five adults will experience at least one episode of back pain at some time in their lives. The cause of back pain, however, is not always apparent; in fact, in approximately 85% to 90% of individuals with back pain, no specific cause can be identified.  To help us better understand this common condition and learn how to manage low back pain, we'll be speaking with Dr Owen Williamson. Dr Williamson is an orthopaedic spine surgeon and specialist pain medicine physician. He is also an Adjunct Senior Lecturer in the Department of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine, Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.  In 2007, Dr Williamson became the first orthopaedic surgeon in Australia to become a Fellow of the Faculty of Pain Medicine, Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists in 2007. He is on the Education and Training Committee and an examiner for the Faculty of Pain Medicine and is involved in the development of pain education programs in both Australia and Canada.

    Dr. Mario Castellanos: Understanding The Differences in your Chronic Pelvic Pain

    in Health

     


    Join our original "Pelvic Messenger" Elisabeth Oas, as she interviews Dr. Mario Castellano of Phoenix Arizona. He is here to discuss some of the underlying causes of the biggest diagnoses chronic pelvic pain patients deal with. While many of us, have IC, Endo, Pudendal Neuralgia and more...we also often might have other diagnoses going on we are unaware of, that are either mimicking these bigger players or making them worse. In either case treating these other diagnoses is important to feeling better!! I think we can all agree that being able to recognize the subtle differences in our pelvic pain can be hard, especially when everything is hurting at once. Tune into this show to help yourself with gaining the insight on how to do this!!


    Dr. Castellanos expertise includes pudendal neuralgia, pelvic congestion syndrome, pelvic floor muscle spasms, interstitial cystitis, and pain related to vaginal mesh procedures. He has special skills in pudendal nerve decompression surgery, ultrasound-guided peripheral nerve blocks, and Botox trigger point injections. He is also a fellowship trained minimally invasive gynecologic surgeon for the treatment of complex pelvic pathology and pelvic pain.


     He has presented at national congregations and published on various topics related to chronic pelvic pain. He is an active member of the AAGL and the International Pelvic Pain Society. It was his research and work presented at the 2014 IPPS annual conference, that inspired us to have him on the show! Discussing these very complicated and critical topics can make a world of difference for the overall well being for the patient living with pelvic pain.
