A Healthy Curiosity

Exploring strategies for holistic health, happiness, and personal evolution: what it takes to be well in a busy world. Blending the wisdom of Chinese Medicine, functional medicine, Ayurveda, neuroscience and psychology, you'll get practical tips you can use right away. 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.

Emily Vaden is an incredible young woman with a powerful story to tell. She shares her transformative self-care journey from chronic migraines, through moving and unemployment, the birth of her daughter, and her husband’s suicide -- and how she developed an indomitable resilience.

We delve into what has helped her weather the storms with strength and grace, including:

  • Letting go of the need for constant control
  • How she makes time for self-care even as a single mom of a toddler in addition to her full-time job
  • Lessons of grief
  • Things that help: acupuncture, massage, friends, and people who get it
  • Learning to say no when you need to
  • Having an identity apart from just that of being a parent, and role-modeling happiness and self-care for her daughter
  • Permission to have a back-up plan

I hope you find her story as inspiring, and that you love Emily as much as I do.
