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.

Chemotherapy has been described as one of the most traumatic and difficult treatments one can go through. But unfortunately, in this toxic world we live in, there’s a good chance that most of us will know someone personally who has to go through chemotherapy. Is there any way to minimize the harmful effects of this devastating treatment and possibly make it a positive experience?

My guest today is Carol Lourie, who is a Naturopath, Acupuncturist and Homeopath. After attending the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, Carol moved to California, obtained her Acupuncture license and opened the Natural Health Care and Healing Center in Berkeley. She has always been interested in the treatment of complex disease and utilizes all skills for a mind-body approach towards recovering health.

 

“I think that when you are undergoing care for something as complex as cancer, you need to be able to differentiate what parts of the recommended treatment are for you, when you want to seek a second opinion and how you can become the most empowered advocate for yourself.” – Carol Lourie

 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Types of support available to those with breast or ovarian cancer.
  • A person with cancer is not a “patient”.
  • The beauty of individualizing treatment for each person.

  • The benefits of using acupuncture to help mitigate side effects.
  • Dietary suggestions for those who are going through chemo.
