A Healthy Curiosity

Exploring self-care strategies, personal evolution, Chinese Medicine, and what it takes to be well in a busy world. You know that health and happiness aren’t things you can outsource. You’ve also got a full plate, and making the time to take care of yourself can be challenging. A Healthy Curiosity is here to support you. Host Brodie Welch, L.Ac., is an expert in Chinese Medicine and acupuncture, a holistic health coach, as well as a teacher and practitioner of qi gong, meditation, yoga, lifestyle and diet counseling who tries to walk her talk about health and mindfulness as a recovering Type-A, parent, and business owner.

Pelvic Pain Solutions for Women

with Dr. Jessica Drummond

Is it normal to have pain with your menstrual cycle? Or pain with sex? These types of pain are very common, normalized in our cultural conversations (if they're talked about at all). But they are certainly not required, nor should we just accept them as part of what it means to have a female body. Join me to break the silence, dispel myths, address common causes and treatment options for pelvic pain with Dr. Jessica Drummond. You'll hear about: 

  • endometriosis, vulvodynia and what we can do about them
  • how the awareness of trauma might actually be doing women a disservice when it comes to a pelvic pain diagnosis
  • how Chinese Medicine can help
  • building a holistic-minded treatment team for pelvic pain

Dr. Jessica Drummond, DCN, CNS, PT, NBC-HWC Founder and CEO of the Integrative Women’s Health Institute is passionate about caring for and empowering women who struggle with women’s and pelvic health conditions. She is equally passionate about educating and supporting clinicians in confidently and safely using integrative tools to transform women’s and pelvic healthcare.


Two decades of experience in women’s and pelvic health as a physical therapist and functional nutritionist, plus owning a private women’s health clinical nutrition and coaching practice, gives her a unique perspective on the integrative, conservative options for pelvic pain management, hormone balance, preconception and fertility support, postpartum recovery, and chronic pain and fatigue management in active and athletic women. She regularly lectures on topics such as integrative pelvic pain management, natural fertility options, optimal hormone health, female athletes, and functional and integrative nutrition for rehabilitation, nutrition, wellness, fitness, and medical professionals.

Ways We Self-Minimize

with Brodie Welch, L.Ac.

Do you move through the world in a powerful way? Or do you subtly give others permission to dismiss you? As women, we're socialized to soften -- or even apologize for-- our presence, our words, our opinions.  If we're doing that, we're not embodying self-respect. Listen in to learn:

  • Words and phrases you may be using that dampen your power -- and what to say instead
  • The most important word to eliminate from your self-talk to help you feel capable
  • The connection between the season of spring, the liver/ gallbladder and the courage to speak your truth

Beyond the Pill

with Dr. Jolene Brighten

Hormonal birth control pills can mean freedom from unwanted pregnancy, but this freedom often comes at the cost. These days, hormonal based birth control pills are commonly prescribed for symptoms from painful periods to acne, often before a woman gets a chance to understand her own cycles, without much discussion of possible side effects, alternative treatments, and other non-hormonal methods for preventing unwanted pregnancies. Dr. Jolene Brighten spent years working with woman identifying Post-Birth Control Syndrome, and then learning how to help women heal from the use of hormonal birth control. On today's episode we discuss:

  • controlling vs. listening to our natural cycles
  • the side effects every woman considering or taking The Pill should know 
  • how our symptoms are signals from the body and why masking them might not be a great idea

Dr. Jolene Brighten is Functional Naturopathic Medical Doctor and nutritional biochemist with a focus in women's endocrine health. She is recognized as a leading expert in Post-Birth Control Syndrome and the long term side effects associated with hormonal contraceptives. Dr. Brighten is also the author of, "Beyond the Pill: A 30-Day Program to Balance Your Hormones, Reclaim Your Body, and Reverse the Dangerous Side Effects of the Birth Control Pill." She is a speaker and a women's health advocate.

Timing Is Everything

with Brodie Welch

 

Diet, nutrition, exercise, therapy... we'll try anything to try to feel better and be healthier. But what if what's actually ailing us is the timing of our sleeping and eating? On this week's episode, we talk about

  • the part of your brain that regulates hunger, hormones, and sleep;
  • how our organs tell what time it is;
  • and yet another reason why to eat breakfast.

The wisdom behind living in sync with nature comes from ancient traditions—Ayurveda and Chinese medicine are just two of these—and modern science is just now catching up. We also dig into the Dr. Satchin Panda's new book Circadian Code.
