DEA National RX Take Back Day
On Saturday, October 27 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will hold its 16th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. Held on the last Saturday of April and October of every year, this national event addresses a crucial public safety and public health issue.
Since its introduction to the public in 2010, the DEA has collected and incinerated over 4,982 tons of unwanted, unused, and potentially dangerous medications.
According to the 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 6.2 million Americans misused controlled prescription drugs. Unfortunately, a majority of misused prescription drugs are obtained from family, friends, and relatives from their kitchen, bedroom or medicine cabinet.
The DEA’s National Take Back Day is an opportunity for Americans to help prevent drug addiction and overdose deaths and to raise awareness about the dangers of opioid misuse.

Three habits for better health
Since April is National Stress-Awareness Month I’ve provided three simple steps to reduce stress and greatly increase mental and physical health — ALL year around.
1. Sleep 30 minutes more each day
Increase sleep about 30 minutes more tonight than you did last night. Stress levels are affected by sleep. Studies show that 90% of people do not get enough sleep. When we do not get enough sleep, we tend to be stressed and sometimes moody. Most people only sleep about 6 to 7 hours. However, we really need 7 to 8 hours of sleep. Try to add an extra 30 minutes of sleep each night. If there is trouble sleeping, try putting on some calm music and lowering the lights. This may help clear the mind of thoughts.
NBA Coach says ‘stay away from back surgery’
Considering back surgery? Here’s what NBA coach Steve Kerr of the Golden State Warriors said in April 2017 about his back surgery: “I can tell you if you’re listening out there, stay away from back surgery. I can say that from the bottom of my heart. Rehab, rehab, rehab. Don’t let anyone get in there.”
Those are STRONG words. Please remember, only 5% of people with back pain should have surgery. Yet more than 600,000 back surgeries are done in the United States each year. Make sure you first try non-surgical options like my clinics provide to treat your back. Surgery has no guarantees.
Listen to excerpts from Dr. Bragg’s seminars and media interviews on back pain and other acute conditions.
80% of us will have back pain at some point in our life by age 55. Making matters worse, back pain often comes at inopportune times and destroys vacations, work, outings, holidays and special occasions.
Dr. Winifred Bragg has treated thousands of patients with back pain over the past 20 years. She has written this book to educate people about the symptoms and causes of low back pain and to offer her proven strategies for pain relief.

Dr. Bragg frequently speaks to Case Managers and companies throughout Hampton Roads on the benefits of thinking first about non-surgical treatments before referring a client to a surgeon. She also speaks to civic organizations, churches and corporations on how to reduce back pain in the workplace.
