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 today’s episode we talk about migraine headaches – what causes them, how to treat them and what steps we might take to avoid them if possible. My guest is Erin Knight who is an expert in migraine headaches. Erin helps professional women who desire natural, root-cause solutions providing freedom from chronic migraines.

 

While there are many prescription medications on the market today that address migraine headaches, there is an overall increase of interest in alternative solutions. Some people find that taking these medications can often lead to an entirely different health issue. Erin shares important insight on migraine headache triggers and treatments.

 

“I really want people to realize that migraine headaches are a symptom of some type of underlying stress in your body. This stress shows up for different people in different ways. A migraine headache is your body’s way of screaming out for you to take a deeper look at what’s going on inside.” – Erin Knight
