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, a holistic health coach, 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.

Being successful does not necessarily bring happiness. For my guest Dr. Andrea Pennington, it did the exact opposite: it burned her out, and stifled her spark to the point of deep depression, and cut her off from herself in profound ways. Thankfully, she found her way back.

When I stumbled across this fellow Chinese Medicine and qi gong practitioner's work, and learned we shared a passion for blending paradigms, biohacking and evangelizing self-love, I immediately reached out to get this multi-passionate powerhouse on the show. We talk about: 

  • falling into the "success trap:" how getting everything she wanted made her miserable
  • how a profound spiritual experience rescued her from a deep depression
  • why self-awareness is a pre-requisite for self-love
  • the connection between happiness and authentic self-expression
  • how qi gong helped her connect to self-love
  • how identifying as consciousness itself fosters self-compassion 

Dr. Andrea Pennington is an integrative physician, acupuncturist, meditation teacher and #1 international bestselling author of several books on resilience, mindfulness and self-love. Dr. Andrea’s extensive study of medical nutrition, positive psychology and longevity biohacking led her to create a holistic media platform, In8Vitality, blending ancient wisdom and modern science for enhanced vitality and life mastery.
 
As Co-founder of the #RealSelfLove Movement Andrea speaks globally to reduce the stigma of mental illness and to support people on their journey to authentic living Andrea is also a highly acclaimed TEDx speaker.  Dr. Andrea has shared her candid insights on resilience on the Oprah Winfrey Show, the Dr. Oz Show, CNN, the Today Show, LUXE-TV, Thrive Global and HuffingtonPost and as a news anchor for Discovery Health Channel.
