The Spectrum of Health with Dr. Christine Schaffner

Jun 23, 2022

Breathing is not something we tend to think about, mostly because we don’t have to. This autonomic reflex occurs in healthy adults whether or not we consider we are mindful of when we inhale or exhale. But utilizing structured breathing for chronic pain and changing your mindset is just a couple of examples of how you can use your own body to become pain-free. 

In today’s episode, Dr. Christine Schaffner talks with Jane Hogan, wellness engineer, about the connection between the mind, body, and breath. How can we use our breath to work through the pain? 

Jane Hogan, “The Wellness Engineer,” is passionate about helping people release joint pain by naturally letting go of inflammatory foods, thoughts, and feelings so they are free to become the most magnificent version of themselves. 

Her personal experience of overcoming crippling rheumatoid arthritis using natural solutions inspired her to leave a nearly 30-year engineering career and become a Functional Medicine Certified Health Coach – Jane hung up her hard hat and followed her heart!
