At the same time our nation had the COVID-19 pandemic, we also continue to battle an opioid pandemic.  Dr. Prather talks about the three waves of the opioid pandemic.  In this episode, you'll learn:

—How Hawaii has been the most restrictive state in the country regarding COVID-19.  And the recent history that makes the state more sensitive to outside diseases.

—The (rather cheap) steroid that is being used for the most severe COVID-19 cases and is saving between 60-70% of people who would otherwise die.

—Why Dr. Prather says it is incorrect to say we're seeing "a second wave" of COVID-19 cases right now.

—How this year is expected to see a record number of opioid deaths based on what we've seen so far.

—The autopsy results of George Floyd that reflect both pandemics, showing both Coronavirus and drug use.

—How pandemics usually come in three waves.  And how this is also seen in the opioid pandemic, where we are in the third wave.

—The alternatives to using opioids for pain.  And why opioids are only to be taken for an acute situation for no more than two weeks.

—Why Structure-Function Health Care is the answer to the opioid epidemic as it gets to the root cause of the pain problem.

—The importance of Acupuncture to stimulate your body's own natural opioid production and heal your body's opioid receptors.

—The 5 Sources Of Pain in the body and why all 5 must be addressed.
