Unpacking Addiction

Welcome to the Wired BioHealth Podcast! In this episode, join us as we delve into the thought-provoking TEDx talk by

Dr. Evelyn Higgins on "Understanding the Biomarkers of Addiction." Dr. Higgins shares her journey and insights on addiction, mental health, and the power of genetic and neurological science in just six and a half minutes.

Discover how Dr. Higgins began her practice in physical medicine in a rural area over 35 years ago and noticed the shortcomings of the "try this, try that" approach to pain management. She then moved to an urban area, hoping for a more scientific approach but found the same issues persisting. This episode explores the critical distinction between dependency and addiction and how long-term use of certain medications can lead to addiction.

Dr. Higgins also discusses the importance of measuring pathways affected by medications, like neurotransmitters, and how individual responses vary. Learn how Wired BioHealth uses advanced technology to analyze genetics and optimize mental wellness, prevent substance use disorders, and inform addiction treatment.

As Dr. Higgins and Jacqueline Hall emphasize, the prevalence of mental health conditions is staggering, with one in four people diagnosed. Post-COVID, the numbers have surged even further.
