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.

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
