On October 6th Dr. Gary Kaplan did a 30-minute live interview on “Healthwatch”, 90.7FM KBOO Portland, Oregon Community Radio.
Dr. David Naimon, Naturopathic Physician, Licensed Acupuncturist, Board Certified Chinese Herbalist, and host of Healthwatch, asked Dr. Kaplan to discuss the concepts in his book Total Recovery: Solving the Mystery of Chronic Pain & Depression.
Dr. Kaplan argues that we’ve been thinking about disease all wrong. He explains that chronic physical and emotional pain are two sides of the same coin. New discoveries show that disease is not the result of a single event but an accumulation of traumas. Every injury, every infection, every toxin, and every emotional blow generates the same reaction: inflammation, activated by tiny cells in the brain, called microglia. Turned on too often from too many assaults, it can have a devastating cumulative effect.
