This episode will totally change your view on both the science of pain and on our brain itself! Today I am joined by one of the leading world expert on Pain Science, Dr.Mark  Hutchinson who is a Professor within the Adelaide Medical School and is the Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics in Australia. His leading work on immunology of the brain and pain science has now discovered that our thoughts and emotions have an actual effect on our immunity and overall health. These so-called pattern recognition receptors and other molecules might just be the interface between our thoughts and actual immune response. This episode can be thought of as the science which is bringing serious western "clout" to eastern medicine. Special shout out to Dan O'Brien Director of Sport Medicine and Research at the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) in New York who connected Dr.Hutchinson and I.

You can kind of think of this episode as East Meets West medicine. Many of the things in this episode shared can not only impact your journey after injury but also help boost your immune system during these times as we continue our fight against the coronavirus. Enjoy!
