BBC Sounds Room 5 Medical Mysteries: Poppy
In Room 5 hosted by Helena Merriman I tell the story of Poppy who went into hospital for a routine operation that left her in excruciating pain.
In this episode of Room 5 I tell the story of a 23 year old girl, Poppy, who had a routine knee operation which left her in excruciating pain. Her leg changed colour and she was unable to walk; yet her scans showed that there is nothing wrong.
Other doctors were unable to help, but I managed to solve the mystery. Listen to the podcast to find out how.

I was delighted to be invited by Dr Rupy Aujla to join him on his The Doctor’s Kitchen podcast to discuss my Upstreamist approach to pain management.
Dr Rupy Aujla is an NHS medical doctor who started The Doctor’s Kitchen in 2015 after suffering from a heart condition that changed his life.
In this interview, we look at upstreamist using a holistic, trauma informed and integrated approach as well as looking at the importance of the role of lifestyle and nutrition on pain.
Dr Joe Tatta –
Understanding Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) And Chronic Pain
It was indeed a great honour for me to be invited to be a podcast guest on the Healing Pain Podcast by Joe Tatta.
Joe has been an inspirational mentor and teacher in terms of the holistic management of pain, and I have completed his courses on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as nutrition for chronic pain.
In this episode, it was a fantastic opportunity for me to discuss the principles of trauma-informed care and how our understanding of the management of chronic pain needs to incorporate the understanding of trauma, including PTSD, where the entire immune and nervous system are under extreme threat and sympathetic arousal. This continues to be a very important topic, I hope you enjoy this interview and I certainly enjoyed this chat with Joe.

This is one of the earliest podcast interviews that I did when I was starting to formulate the creation of the Pain Free Mindset in my head.
