It all started when…
…I learned that the FDA had approved Oxycontin in August 2015 for children (ages 11-17) whose pain was not controlled by other means. How can our children be feeling so much pain that they require opioids at a time when their brains are not fully developed? Won’t this set the stage for even more addiction? At that moment, I felt called to explore not only how we arrived at this point of poisoning our children and society, but also why I needed to courageously offer a new solution. There must be a better answer, and there is!
My instinct has been that the current pain scale is fueling the opioid crisis. Pain is viewed as the enemy, with the single goal of silencing it, at any cost. This attempt to numb our pain is yielding tragic results in society- Pain continues, Addiction rages, and People are dying! By flipping the pain scale, I am offering a palatable, optimistic vision: "Comfort Quest", where our innate, healing energy is focused on real solutions- uncovering root causes, understanding pain's messages, and empowering our bodies to flourish once again.
As its founder, I AM focused on giving voice, hope and strength to those who are convinced they no longer have it... nurses (self-care challenges), patients (victims of pain/ addiction), and ALL healers (tunnel vision expansion)… Please join our Quest!
