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.

Today’s beauty standards can make anyone feel self-conscious. We see them staring back at us daily, standing in line at the grocery store, logging into social media, everywhere.

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
  • Identifying toxins and threats to your wellness, and simple tips to living cleaner and healthier
  • Creating and maintaining a constant reregulation of healing in our bodies

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?
