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 we’re discussing the yin and yang of the menstrual cycle with Dr. Eric Karchmer, a fellow Chinese Medicine “geek.” We’ll hear his insight on addressing the menstrual cycle and related issues from a Chinese medicine background. We also talk about other women’s health concerns that can come up in life and how they can be addressed from a lifestyle, diet and Chinese herbal perspective.

Eric’s fascination with Chinese medicine started over 30 years ago, when he ventured to China to teach English. Before earning a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of North Carolina, Eric spent five years earning a Bachelor’s of Medicine from the renowned Beijing University of Chinese Medicine and attended Princeton for his undergraduate studies. He has published numerous scholarly articles on Chinese medicine and will finish his book manuscript, Orientalizing the Body: Postcolonial Transformations in Chinese Medicine, later this year.

 

“I think one of the difficulties for American women when thinking about their periods is that they’re not used to thinking about the entire body and how it relates to their menstrual cycle.” – Dr. Eric Karchmer
