Escape into Excellence Diana’s message, “Use every dimension available; social, personal, cognitive, and knowledge, to make decisions in the highest level of integrity.” In our discussion, we cover the time, language, and knowledge necessary to engage in ethical, thorough, and reflective decision making, so when you press the send button, whether through cyberspace or in person, you do so with great confidence that you have made an ethical, empathic, and reasoned decision. “We think about our thinking,” Diana says, by being aware and understanding Neurotransmitter Ticklers, STAR template for problem-solving, Habits of Thinking, and the Q Intelligence we all have within.
Embrace Your Excellence Diana’s message, “All stakeholders play a role. There is tangible action into the process of getting hooked on narcotics, pain, and overdose risk. Use every element available; adjuvant options that work on pain neural pathways: include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, acetaminophen, neuro-modulators, antidepressants, heat, ice, chiropractic, muscle strengthening, flexibility training, and positive mindfulness coping strategies. Think about short-term, long-term, going low and short! There is not a pill for every ill! Narcotics do not treat the root cause of suffering. Be your advocate! Speak up, as a patient healthcare is in your hands.
