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.

My guest today is Mary Hyatt, Creator of Babe Redefined. She is helping women learn how to love themselves, their bodies, and quiet that inner bully, the one we’ve all struggled with. Mary helps people love their bodies and get out of the cycle of emotional eating.

Today’s episode is a bit of a twist and an unusual approach, in comparison to past episodes of the podcast. If you’ve listened to the podcast before, you’ll know that my episodes are based on interviews and visits that I conduct with other health experts, practitioners, and coaches. On today’s episode, the tables are being turned, and I am being interviewed by a listener of the podcast.

 

My guest today is Audrey Burke – she is a newer, but loyal listener of A Healthy Curiosity, and has found herself with a deep desire to help people. She is interested in pursuing a career in wellness, but isn’t quite sure which direction to go. Audrey has a unique background, with a degree in biomedical engineering and a work history including corporate work, working on farms and for non-profits, and living in Italy as an ex-pat. She is passionate about yoga, but has found herself fascinated by Ayurveda, acupuncture, and massage school, among other things.

 

Audrey takes the lead with questions as I share my career and wellness journey – a journey that has been anything but linear, but has led me to the beautiful combination of skills, techniques, and practices I love sharing with my clients today.

 

“The beautiful thing about being in the health field or the wellness field is that every ounce of work you do on yourself, is going to benefit the other people in your life. Your own personal lessons become the things you are skillful at sharing with your patients.” – Brodie Welch

I recently had the pleasure of being a guest on her podcast and I’m so excited to have Shanna Ekedal with us today. Shanna is a frequency alchemist and personal coach dedicated to helping people have the body and life they want. She’s a trailblazer in mind-body spirit wellness and host of Soul Frequency Podcast. She’s been where many of us have been before, a little lost and focused on finding perfection. That was until she had a profound experience that forced her to wake up and change her life and now she helps others do the same.

Today she helps decipher whether it’s our intuition or fear telling us to do something. Also, how do we make small changes towards a new life. We often take on the energy of those around us, Shanna will help us focus on getting back to who we are and putting focus on where it needs to be.

“You need the love around you. Find that support system that is going to love you and guide you through the process because that is everything it gives you the courage to make the steps that you want to make. “

One of our favorite guests on A Healthy Curiosity is back with us on today’s episode. Alexx Stuart is an educator and change agent who founded Low Tox Life in 2010 after seeing the lack of transparency in our food system, personal care and cleaning products. She joins me today to talk about creating healthier homes and families, living a life with fewer toxins, and the environmental impacts of the products and foods we use.

 

Join in and learn with me as Alexx explains some useful and practical information to help us bring our lives into greater alignment with our values and goals, from both a personal and a planetary perspective. As we talk about navigating healthy living and becoming more conscious of what we bring into our lives, we also acknowledge that there are ways to change and adopt new habits without feeling like a failure and while still allowing yourself to enjoy your life and relationships.

 

“It’s not about striving for some sort of perfection… it is about striving to become more and more conscious of the choices that we make and how they affect us and the planet we live on. We cannot feel guilty about what we didn’t know yesterday. Instead, feel excited about what you’re going to change from today.” - Alexx Stuart

 

 

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Looking deeper at what we are exposed to and how they impact our health
  • Everyday products to avoid and potentially harmful ingredients to be aware of
  • How the packaging and ingredients of our food and home products can impact our health
  • Simple ways to support your children and create greater health awareness in your home and family life

Today we’re talking about toxicity, resilience, and how to find greater health in a toxic world. We dive into some basic information about the MTHFR gene – what it is and what we should know about it, as well as genetic mutation, and what we can do about it. My guest is Dr. Kendra Becker-Musante.

 

Dr. Becker-Musante is an Integrative Physician, who has practiced in Connecticut for over a decade. She specializes in treatment for the “4 A’s,” Asthma, Autism, Allergies, and Eczema. She has a passion for exploring environmental toxins in our lives and treatment for the 4 A’s, among other effects and challenges resulting from toxicity and other environmental and genetic factors. She is the author of “A Delicious Way to Heal the Gut” and is planning for a second book to be published in early 2018.

 

Learn how to heal your body from the inside, and begin your journey of healing and resilience, starting with your cells. Learn how food can be your medicine or your poison and that your genes do not define you, but certainly help guide the way of your healing.” – Dr. Kendra Becker-Musante

 

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

 

  • The ins and outs of genetic diversity, MTHFR, and cellular resiliency
  • Autism, Asthma, Eczema, and Allergies – what do they have in common and what they’re telling you about the toxins in your body

Today we’re discussing one of the scariest diagnoses out there – one that has the potential to shut us down or become a true turning point in life: cancer. This is a topic that hits home personally for me as I have worked with a number of people who are dealing with cancer in both early and late stages. It’s something that can instill fear and paralysis in people. My guest is Kirstin Nussgruber who is a cancer survivor herself. She shares her powerful survival story and her unique insight into transforming our relationship with cancer.

Kirstin is an empathetic cancer mentor, speaker and educator who is passionate about helping people get out of cancer overwhelm by teaching them how to reclaim their lives. A two-time cancer survivor herself, she learned first hand the importance of an integrative approach to one’s health to facilitate true healing. She offers individualized mentoring, can be hired for inspirational speaking engagements and offers interactive virtual programs such as the Beyond Cancer Program™. She is also the bestselling author of “Confessions of a Cancer Conqueror – My 5 Step Process to Transform Your Relationship with Cancer.”

“It’s important to be open to sharing emotions. We don’t need to shield our kids from emotions. We need to be able to show them emotions, talk to them about those emotions and let them have them as well without us judging them.” – Kirstin Nussgruber

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Kirstin’s inspiring survival story.
  • First steps in dealing with the news that you have been diagnosed with cancer.
  • The benefits of allowing emotion to play its role.
  • Allowing our loved ones, including children to deal with their emotions.
  • How to avoid the blame game and regret.
  • How can we understand the spiritual message that our physical pain is sending us?
  • Dealing with the disconnect that can happen between our mental/spiritual limits and our physical limits.
  • Changing our vision of what is “healthy.”
  • What can people do with their diet to facilitate detoxification and perhaps cancer prevention?
  • The effects of inviting fear to the table when it comes to dealing with cancer.

Today we’re discussing energy – not in the Chinese Medicine sense of the word, but how to find more of it. The lack of energy is something that comes up often with many of the people I work with and it’s something we have all felt at one time or another. My guest Evan Hirsch will shed some light on the difference between feeling tired and chronic fatigue and how we can fix it in our own personal way.

Dr. Evan, as he is affectionately known, is the best selling author of Fix Your Fatigue: The 4 step process to resolving chronic fatigue, achieving abundant energy and reclaiming your life! He is one of the nation’s leaders on finding the root causes of chronic fatigue and resolving them. Dr. Evan suffered with chronic fatigue himself for 5 years before he achieved resolution using the Fix Your Fatigue Program that he developed at the Hirsch Center for Integrative Medicine in Olympia, Washington. He has helped hundreds of people resolve their chronic fatigue and is on a mission to help 100,000 more through his blog, online courses, books, 1-on-1 consults and the training of providers.

“It is so important for people to step into their own power. For them to realize how important self-care is and that they deserve it. You don’t get better until you prioritize yourself.” – Dr. Evan Hirsch

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Why are we so tired?
  • 15 different causes or “usual suspects” of fatigue.
  • What things we can do to avoid overloading ourselves with toxins that can overburden us and cause fatigue.
  • Is there a commonly overlooked cause of fatigue?
  • A test you can do on your own for infection.
  • Why exercising can become a vicious cycle for fatigue and how to avoid that cycle.
  • How much of the fatigue we feel relates to mold that we don’t realize exists in our homes and places of work.
  • What is the difference between fatigue and chronic fatigue?
  • Is there something more specific that we should all know about when it comes to chronic fatigue?

In this episode, we dive deep into the topic of chronic pain, specifically how and why it affects some more than others. We also explore the biofield and its significance in all kinds of different mind and body issues. We’ll also talk about why it is that our good intentions don’t always match up with our daily actions.

My guest today is Deborah Wayne, who is the founder of The Pain Free Living Program, an internationally-known energy healer and pain-release expert whose specialty is helping people rapidly remove the hidden causes for Pain, Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Binge-Eating, Addictions, and more. She is the #1 Bestselling Author of “Why Do I Still Hurt?" and has earned degrees and certifications in Psychology, Hypnotherapy and Chemical Dependency Counseling. Deborah has 30 years teaching Meditation, is a nationally recognized Fine Artist, a former professional Modern Dancer, a Certified Yoga Instructor, and Director of the Biofield Healing Institute™.

“I have found that in every situation where there is some kind of pain or problematic issue, there is always an emotional, mental or psychological component to it. Always. They are not separate” – Deborah Wayne

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Why is it that some people have to live with chronic pain and others don’t?
  • Is there always an underlying emotional or psychological issue that relates to chronic physical pain?
  • What do we know about the science of the biofield? Is it measurable? Is it just a matter of belief?
  • How can people get in touch with what’s happening in the biofield? How can we work with it?
  • Can anyone work with the biofield?
  • How does working with the biofield help us bridge the gap between what we’re doing now and what we’d like to be doing?
  • A good first step for those of us who are ready to start working more closely with our emotions.

We discuss some fascinating topics in today’s podcast, including biohacking and how it allows us to take control over physiology in ways that we don’t normally think of. We also talk about the importance of sleep. My guest Arvin Khamseh shares his thoughts on why sleep is so crucial to a healthy and a happy life. He also sheds some light on some sleep hacking techniques that can have a big impact on getting a good night’s sleep.

Arvin Khamseh is an Oxford-trained geek and graduate of the National Organization of Development of Exceptional Talents. He is a contributor to publications such as Thrive Global, American Student Dental Association (ASDA) and Medium and Better Humans. Arvin’s expert advice has been featured in the top named Inc. Magazine podcast: Conscious Millionaire and he has spoken on stage at one of the largest health and fitness retreats on the east coast. After extensive lab research, self-experimentation and personal mentoring, he was able to add 215 lbs. to his deadlift, help his mother easily lose over 30 lbs. and has reversed two dental cavities.

 

“It is possible to maximize our sleep quality. The challenge is remembering what it was like to get a good night’s sleep. Most of us forget or get used to bad sleep patterns and never take the steps to correct them” – Arvin Khamseh

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • What exactly is biohacking?
  • The types of biohacking information we should pay attention to and is most relevant.
  • Why gut biome/bacteria and genetic tests might be the 2 most important self-screening tests we can do.

  • Tips for sleep hacking – why would we even want to do that?
  • Reasons why some people can’t get a good night’s sleep and strategies to overcome that obstacle.

In today’s episode, we discuss the connection between mindset and health, specifically when it comes to healthy eating and weight loss. My guest is Amy Krasner who supports women who are struggling with low energy, digestive issues and difficulty losing weight. I met Amy at a workshop where the focus was on deep self-reflection on what parts of our own stories can actually be a service to others. She shares what led her to where she is now as well as understanding how to nourish our own bodies and developing a practice of positive self-talk.

As a Holistic Nutritionist and a Natural Chef, Amy has helped hundreds of women to improve their health by understanding how to nourish their bodies. In addition to nutrition consulting, Amy supports women to create a healthier relationship with food through Eating Psychology and Intuitive Eating methodologies. She uses a unique approach of 80% mindset and 20% nutrition to help women overcome physical and emotional blocks that have held them back from success with other diet and exercise approaches.

 

“I see so many women who feel that they are alone in their struggle to lose or maintain weight. I want to remind them that this is a much bigger collective issue…that working with others can not only give them the support they need, but also gives them the opportunity to provide support to others.” –

 

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Tuning into and paying attention to how you as an individual react to food.
  • How we can avoid demonizing certain foods.
  • What’s important about mindset when it comes to eating?
  • The connection between behavior and our food choices.
  • Tips for those of us who may struggle with mindful eating.
  • How to move away from negative self-talk especially when it comes to food.
  • How can women develop a better sense of body image in the face of an ever-prevalent cultural messaging that seems to set a standard?
  • Listening to our intuition when it comes to overcoming cravings – especially when it comes to food that may not be so good for us…like sugar.

My guest for today’s episode is very passionate about taking the many different pieces of our health and putting them together in one complete blueprint for wellness. She makes the comparison of our overall health as a house – just like it wouldn’t be a good idea to leave one room of our house cluttered, unclean or disorganized, so it is with our health. We should be taking the time to pay attention to all aspects of our health.

Today we’re discussing the yin and yang of the menstrual cycle with Dr. Eric Karchmer, a fellow Chinese Medicine “geek.” We’ll hear his insight on addressing the menstrual cycle and related issues from a Chinese medicine background. We also talk about other women’s health concerns that can come up in life and how they can be addressed from a lifestyle, diet and Chinese herbal perspective.

Eric’s fascination with Chinese medicine started over 30 years ago, when he ventured to China to teach English. Before earning a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of North Carolina, Eric spent five years earning a Bachelor’s of Medicine from the renowned Beijing University of Chinese Medicine and attended Princeton for his undergraduate studies. He has published numerous scholarly articles on Chinese medicine and will finish his book manuscript, Orientalizing the Body: Postcolonial Transformations in Chinese Medicine, later this year.

 

“I think one of the difficulties for American women when thinking about their periods is that they’re not used to thinking about the entire body and how it relates to their menstrual cycle.” – Dr. Eric Karchmer

  

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • How a menstrual cycle can be a uniquely valuable clue about what’s going on inside the body.
  • What should a normal period feel like?
  • Common diagnosis for women who are having issues with their period from a Chinese Medicine perspective.
  • Tapping into the more subtle experiences and symptoms that doesn’t always show up in lab results from your biomedical doctor or OBGYN.
  • What can we do to remedy a blood deficiency?
  • How heat and cold (foods, liquids, environments) can impact the menstrual cycle.
  • The connection between the health of our kidneys and our overall health.
