Dr. Chas Gant, MD, Ph.D., will be offering a free seminar on Overcoming Pain, from 7 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, November 18 at Roberta’s Natural Food Market in Fairfax. The evening will begin with a Healthy Happy Hour at 6:30 p.m.

Gant ( will discuss recent discoveries in neuroscience that have revolutionized the management of pain. Although it often starts in the body, all pain involves the brain. In fact there is an 80 percent overlap in the areas of the brain involved in physical and emotional pain. The great thing about the brain is that it is changeable and the sources of pain can be overcome, armed with the right information. Known internationally for his more than three decades of work in integrative, complementary/alternative and functional medicine, Gant practices at the National Integrative Health Associates in Chevy Chase. He is also the founder of the Academy of Functional Medicine and has authored numerous national professional publications.
