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, you're a giver, 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. While not strictly an acupuncture / Chinese Medicine podcast, it's not "not" an acupuncture podcast.

You know we need a healthy gut microbiome in order to digest and absorb nutrients from our food – without pain, gas, bloating, diarrhea or constipation. It also plays a role in autoimmune disease, hormone balance, our level of energy overall, heart disease, kidney disease, brain fog, bone health -- the list goes on. With Chinese herbal medicine, we can encourage the body to release its own digestive enzymes and bile while supporting the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, and intestines.

On today’s episode you'll learn:

  • What besides food affects the gut microbiome
  • How the gut interconnects with other body systems 
  • Chinese herbs that help with gas, bloating, and fat loss
  • A simple practice you can employ to help you digest and absorb better right away

Dr. Andrew Miles, DOM grew up with a Taiwanese stepfather immersed in Chinese culture, martial arts, and medicine. He studied Traditional Chinese Medicine in Canada at the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and later studied advanced diagnostics and integrated medicine at the Chengdu University of TCM in Sichuan, China. He lived in China for years learning more about Chinese medicine in laboratories and learning from China’s top specialists. He is the host of the Botanical Biohacking podcast and works with an expert panel to source sustainably wildcrafted herbs for dampness. He has consulted for pharmaceutical companies, practiced medicine and taught martial arts in China, and has been recognized by the Taiwanese and Chinese governments for promotion and preservation of traditional Chinese culture.Through his Chinese herb company, Botanical Biohacking, he supplies some of the best herbal medicine on the planet to Chinese herbal medicine practitioners, including my clinic.
