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.

Whether you're feeling tight and stressed, listless and exhausted, or generally just not at your best, one of the most immediate levers we can pull to start feeling better is breathing. The effects of breathwork are so extensive that essentially all systems of the body benefit from improving how we breathe.

Since our breath affects every aspect of our being, Jen Broyles shares why using it optimally is so powerful and so accessible.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • How her own personal health journey led her to breathwork
  • What effects breathwork can have from both scientific and spiritual perspectives
  • The changes in her thinking that she attributes to using breathing practices over time
  • What some of the science is behind breath retention and intermittent hypoxia
  • A short example of what SOMA breathing is like

Jen Broyles​ is a Holistic Health Coach, SOMA Breathwork Instructor, Essential Oils Coach, and founder of the Sacred Breath Community who helps individuals restore and optimize their health by calming the nervous system and addressing the root cause of their symptoms. After years of battling with digestive issues, anxiety, hormone imbalances, and the trails of conventional medicine herself, Jen made the decision to return to school to study integrative nutrition followed by training in essential oils and breathwork. She believes that nourishing the mind, body, and soul starts with healing foods, self-love, and most importantly proper breathing.

As we're taking a brief pause from the regular podcasting schedule, Ali Shapiro gave us permission to rebroadcast this interview on eating triggers and what it means to embody self-respect.

Originally aired on Ali's podcast, Insatiable, this conversation delves deep into the relationship between self-care and self-respect. As a systems thinker and someone interested in blending paradigms, Ali engages with how societal factors play into our ability to take care of ourselves and live healthy lives in contemporary society.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Defining what it means to embody self-respect
  • What can trigger us to stop our self-care
  • How willpower and habits are different

Ali is the founder of Truce with Food®, host of the top-ranked podcast Insatiable, a holistic nutritionist, integrated health coach and rebel with a serious cause. She’s academically, practically, and empathetically aware of how the medical system, diet culture, and body positivity movements all have their own flavor of crazy. She created her Truce with Food method while in graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania where she earned her Masters in Organizational Dynamics, which is like getting an MBA in the change process, where she drew from her decade plus of working with real life clients and her own personal healing journey from having cancer as a teenager.
