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.

Incorporating a therapeutic diet and lifestyle is a central tenet of a lot of different approaches to health. It's always fascinating to see where these paradigms collide and reinforce one another, so hearing about the amazing results Dr. Terry Wahls has seen is truly inspirational.

If you've been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis or really any autoimmune disease, Dr. Wahls' research is a great window into how focusing on the way we nourish ourselves can improve our cellular health, give us more energy, and reduce pain. 

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • What opportunities we can take advantage of during the disruption from COVID-19
  • How her understanding of disease and health transformed through her own journey
  • Why we have such a hard time changing and her advice to break through it
  • The positive effects her protocol can have even as a preventative measure
  • Some background on what her protocol is and why she set it up that way

Dr. Terry Wahls is an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa where she conducts clinical trials. In 2018 she was awarded the Institute for Functional Medicine’s Linus Pauling Award for her contributions in research, clinical care, and patient advocacy. She is also a patient with secondary progressive multiple sclerosis, which confined her to a tilt-recline wheelchair for four years. Dr. Wahls restored her health using a diet and lifestyle program she designed specifically for her brain and now pedals her bike to work each day. She is the author of The Wahls Protocol: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles, Learn more about her MS clinical trials by reaching out to her team and pick up copies of her research papers or a one-page handout for the Wahls™ Diet.
