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, 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. You'll find interviews with fellow experts in Chinese Medicine and natural health care about the conditions we treat and strategies we use clinically; simple self-care tips to help you feel calm, centered, and energized; and personal chats where we explore what gets in the way of our best intentions: perfectionism, big goals, habits and routines, chronic pain, overwork and overwhelm, boundaries, limiting beliefs — and what it takes to overcome such obstacles mindfully.

In Episode 57 of A Healthy Curiosity, Brodie talks with Maureen Magauran, MD and Holistic Psychiatrist, about the ways we convince ourselves that we’re stuck, even when we have the power to make positive changes. Meditation allows us to tap into something greater than ourselves, which can help us see our own lives in new and different ways, allowing us to heal from grief, trauma, and everyday ups and downs.

 

 

In this episode, we explore:

 

  • Meditation – what it is and what it isn’t
  • How to shift your mindset
  • Discovering where you’re getting stuck
  • Holding space for someone to show them they’re cared for

Is shame keeping you from realizing your value? 

In this episode, Brodie talks with Jennifer Kind, LPC, CDWF, EPC, a Psychotherapist and coach in Portland, OR who works with people cultivating more shame resilience, self-acceptance, and the ability to be kinder to themselves and others. Jen believes shame holds people back; it is not a good motivator for change. Shame breeds fear, anxiety, depression, and paralysis. It keeps us from becoming who we are; it keeps us from living our truth.

 

In this episode, we explore:

 

  • The ways shame holds us back
  • Unhealthy cultural attitudes about vulnerability
  • How there can be no courage without vulnerability
  • Ways shame can manifest in our bodies and emotions
  • Ways to build resilience against shame
  • The connection between shame and body image

Have you ever felt unlucky in love? Maybe you’ve had partners that made you feel bad about yourself or you’ve been on plenty of dates but can’t get someone to commit. Maybe you’re in a long term relationship and simply feel it could be more fulfilling.

It may be time for you to date yourself. In Episode 22 (now 55), Brodie talks with Veronica Grant, dating coach and private yoga instructor, about ways to improve our love lives, whether we’re dating casually, seeking a long-term relationship, or currently with a long-term partner.

 

In this episode, we explore:

 

  • Dating yourself: what does it mean?
  • Some common reasons people struggle to enter a relationship
  • Some common reasons people struggle to get what they want out of a relationship
  • Treating yourself the way you want to be treated
  • Deciding what you want out of your relationship

Marijuana has now been legalized for medical use in 29 U.S. states (plus D.C., Guam, and Puerto Rico) and legalized recreationally in eight (twice as many as when this episode was originally released just last year). In light of these policy developments, marijuana has become the subject of much public debate within the political and medical arenas throughout the last several years. Like acupuncture, definitive medical research on medical marijuana is still relatively scarce, which leaves a lot of people both curious about and wary of its use. In this episode, Brodie talks with Dr. Rachna Patel, a medical marijuana expert, about how she uses medical marijuana in her treatment protocols and what people should know about using medical marijuana.  

 

In this episode, we explore: 

  • How marijuana works in the body 
  • Separating fact from fiction regarding marijuana use 
  • What conditions medical marijuana may help treat 
  • Where marijuana use isn’t backed up by medical research 

 

Dr. Rachna Patel has been practicing in the field of Medical Marijuana since 2012.  She step-by-step walks patients through how to use medical marijuana for their particular medical conditions.  She completed her medical studies at Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Vallejo, CA and her undergraduate studies at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL.
