Join Dr. Bunny Vreeland and Dr. Johannes Ramirez Boden, M.D., as they discuss the opioids.  You’ll learn what opioids are used for, what the effects of opioids are, and how they can be helpful (as well as harmful).  Dr. Ramirez Boden also answers the question “Does everyone get addicted to opioids?”, and reminds us that this is not the only time in history where there has been an opioid addiction.

Dr. Ramirez Boden gives us information about how, and why, opioids are designed to bypass the liver and get into your bloodstream.

This is a wonderful interview, full of details about the world of opioids, medicine, pain relief/management, and addiction – with some karma viewpoints and mind-expanding thoughts added.  Uplifting & enlightening!
