examples of supplements that can be used to potentially help manage chronic pain

Building your Toolbox” is a monthly series that allows people with chronic pain to explore alternative treatment options to help reduce pain and improve overall health.

Our next “Building your Toolbox” event will be Tuesday, July 6 at 7:30 pm ET with Mara Gerke, CA, CH, CNHP, HHP. Gerke will discuss the use of supplements to manage pain including basic nutrition, antioxidants, gut health, and herbal options. 

Gerke was diagnosed with RSD/CRPS in 1994. Since 2005, she has been exploring natural health options for managing her pain. She has certifications in herbs, aromatherapy, and natural health.

Gerke owns the Energy Wellness Center and is the author of the Healthy Habits Challenge, A Guide to Healthy Living. She offers a free 13-week email program sharing her journey with others to help them build their health and better manage their pain, inflammation, and fatigue.

Unlike traditional webinars, the monthly event is set up so participants can see, hear, and interact with one another and the featured speaker. Gerke will present for a small portion of the time, followed by a question and answer period. Pain Connection Director Gwenn Herman will moderate the conversation with assistance from long-time support group leader Bobbi Blades.
