  1. This was a great video, thank you. I live in Colorado where the death rate of opioid abuse is continuing to climb. Providers need to be better informed of the ways to curb use and encouraged to be firm with the patient – reasonable exercise, diet and drug taper are the most desirable outcomes of opioid prescribing.

    Thanks for this. I have watched the youtube videos before, but how do I get credit for this longer show. I will be watching more.

  2. Very informative. I enjoyed the discussion a lot. The hosts are very knowledgeable in the topic and have lots of experience. I also appreciate that they take in all comments, whether good or bad. Thanks a lot. Will be in the look out for more.
