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.

There's a lot of fascinating research being done that continues to bridge the gap between Chinese Medicine and the conventional western medical approach. Dr. Mel Hopper Koppelman joins this conversation to discuss what she's been seeing in the research of Chinese Medicine and acupuncture.

Using her expertise across multiple medical disciplines, Dr. Koppelman shares with us how drawing on a variety of approaches gives us the flexibility to meet people where they are in their health journey.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • How we can try to chart a heathy, sustainable path forward through the COVID-19 pandemic
  • What she’s excited about in the world of acupuncture research right now 
  • Why she finds the research around ATP and adenosine so interesting
  • How different philosophies of science can affect the interpretation of data
  • The importance of having more than one map or model for how things work

Dr. Mel Hopper Koppelman is passionate about helping people to optimize their health and improving access to safe and effective medical care through advocacy and education.

She came to integrative healthcare after overcoming several chronic illnesses using integrative approaches, which conventional medicine was unable to help her treat. She earned an MSc in Acupuncture in 2012 from the Northern College in the UK and a second MSc in Nutrition and Functional Medicine in 2015 from the University of Western States. She also has a diploma in hypnotherapy, which she enjoys weaving into her treatments.

She sees patients both online and at her practice in Rhode Island, Harbor Integrative Health, and is the Executive Director of Evidence Based Acupuncture.

What happens when we stop trying to actively find the solutions for health problems and instead stop to listen to the information coming to us?

Megan Caper uses a whole other way of getting information about the body outside of the typical method of relying solely on thinking. To begin addressing the underlying iceberg of symptoms and patterns in her patients' lives, Megan's approach is to get out of the mode of thinking and into the mode of receiving in order to tap into other unconscious forms of knowing.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • How Megan’s holistic lens views us as one system made of three different, but intertwined, components
  • Why she felt like a piece was missing when she was studying pre-med and how that started her journey into intuitive medicine
  • What it looks like to train the intuition and why she thinks everyone is intuitive
  • Where the best use of medical intuition lies in dealing with health problems
  • Her process for working with clients even though she’s not physically with them

Megan Caper is a medical intuitive, author, and speaker who has helped hundreds of clients who are frustrated with the lack of diagnosis or limited treatment options offered to them by traditional medicine. Megan uses her psychic abilities and medical training to look inside the physical, emotional, and energetic body, find the root cause of the illness, and set clients on the road to true healing. She can be found connecting the dots between science, spirituality, and compassion at www.megancaper.com
