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.

Robyn Openshaw helped skyrocket the whole “green smoothie” trend all the way to mainstream media and has been known as the official Green Smoothie Girl then ever since. More than green smoothies and shakes, Robyn has authored several books about health and wellness, a former psychotherapist, college professor, and a mom of four lovely children. She’s on the verge of launching her new book called “VIBE” which explores the connection between living a healthy lifestyle and vibrational frequencies. It sounds out there for a lot of people, and she gets that, but she’s confident this will change the way we view diets and fitness forever.

In today’s episode, Robyn discusses her new-found interest in vibrational frequencies and the science that surrounds the topic. She also explains how just about every living thing emits certain frequencies, that even the smallest choices can alter our own vibrations and affect our well being.

 

“Anyone or anything in our energy field can raise or lower our own frequencies.” – Robin Openshaw

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Her journey from Green Smoothie Girl to discovering the vibrations of the universe.
  • How Einstein and Tesla inspired her to write her book "VIBE"
  • What her book is all about
  • Why the healing properties of vibration and frequency are already mainstream.
  • Emotions that are high frequency.
  • How vibrations can affect human interaction and relationships
  • The vibrational frequencies of some foods
  • How we can reduce the dirty energy in our environment
  • Why people should raise their energetic vibrations

 

Key Takeaway:

  • Higher vibrations are associated with high frequency emotions.
  • Paying attention to the effects of micro choice can allow us to resonate a frequency 10 Hz higher.
  • Unfortunately, we're still evaluating food if it's good or bad based on calories. It's self-serving and has nothing to do with food being healthy or not.

Tzipporah Gerson-Miller is the owner of Inner Sky Therapeutics, a certified yoga therapist, and a licensed psychotherapist who specializes in cases of trauma, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. In her practice, she uses somatic psychotherapy – an alternative treatment focused on body-centered therapy that links the mind and the body – and integrative yoga. While she does conduct group activities, her practice is more than the usual yoga class. In yoga classes, people go to relax and release stress. What Tzipporah does is more personal and customized to the individual and aims to treat the patient of something that’s bothering their mind that could be causing their physical pains.

In today’s episode, Tzipporah shares her passion for yoga, its holistic roots, and how her methods are different from typical yoga classes. She explains the importance of revisiting traumatic events and the people who could benefit the most in one of her sessions.

 

“Enlightenment can be achieved, even in the most deplorable social situation.” – Tzipporah Gerson-Miller

 

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Is a Yoga therapy group different from a Yoga class?
  • Who benefits the most from her work?
  • How can Yoga help people overcome trauma?
  • The forms trauma can take in our lives.

  • What would be the first step in the ability to cultivate awareness of a person’s own body?
  • Tips on remembering traumatic experiences in the presence of loved ones.
  • The value in feeling the bad stuff in our lives?

 

 

Key Takeaway:

  • Yoga isn't doing inversions and tricky balances.
  • Trauma is not just the things we see on the 5 o'clock news.

Beverly Meyer is a practitioner, podcaster, and blogger who, like so many of us, have struggled with her own health issues early in life. In her college years, Beverly contracted herpes and she was disappointed at what was conventionally known at the time. She sought other doctors, received natural and conservative treatment, and she was able to at least suppress its symptoms. She has since become an advocate for alternative medicine and has established herself as a household name in the Paleo world.

In today’s episode, Beverly shares her learning experience and why she had an interest to research GABA. She also explains why she calls GABA the “forgotten neurotransmitter” and what you can do to determine if you’re low in GABA and how to improve your levels.

 

“GABA is that neurotransmitter that's keeping things at a stable, steady pattern.” – Beverly Meyer

 

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • The four main neurotransmitters in the body.
  • How seizures are linked to GABA.
  • GABA's main roles in the body.
  • Does GABA get depleted and can it be increased through our diet?
  • Why she tells her clients to remove gluten in their diet.
  • Her favorite sleep trick.
  • GABA sources she recommends.
  • What is "leaky brain"?
  • Her thoughts on seeing traditional doctors.

 

 

Key Takeaway:

  • People have to be willing to speak up and acknowledge that they deserve better doctors.
  • The problem is human life right now revolves around stress. Our rational minds are swamped with irrational events that we can't place in a rational system.
  • Every cell in your body is programed to win, to live, and to do its job perfectly. We don't have to make things happen, our job is to let things happen.
