Do you have a chronic condition or pain that there is just no reason for? Have you been in and out of hospitals and doctor offices with no relief? Have diagnostic tests come back without any cause for your ailment?
Science and medicine today are discovering what historically has probably been apparent since nearly the beginning of time. That is, that stress could be killing us.
Our guest is Dr. Clarke, one of the premier physicians that has been studying and implementing in his practice the idea that the mind and body are linked. And that our repressed emotions - often from adverse childhood experiences (ACE) - manifest in our bodies as symptoms of disease and actual disease.
Dr. Clarke is a Clinical Assistant Professor of Gastroenterology Emeritus and Assistant Director at the Center for Ethics at Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU). He is board-certified in Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine and had a practice in Portland, Oregon until 2009. Today Dr. Clarke can be found traveling the world teaching physicians and others the science and theory behind psychophysiologic disorders - essentially mind body medicine.
His book, "They Can't Find Anything Wrong!" is an overview of how stress is affecting us and our health. Dr. Clarke presents numerous real life examples of how patients have recovered quickly - once they understand the real cause for their symptoms.
The mission of Dr. Clarke and the organization Psychophysiologic Disorders Association is as follows: "Advancing the diagnosis and treatment of stress-induced medical conditions suffered by millions worldwide, our work provides a new approach to eliminate (not just manage) chronic pain, fibromyalgia, migraines, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue, pelvic pain and much more."
You are invited to listen carefully to Dr. Clarke and his medical insights into how others have healed - and how you and your loved ones can heal too.
