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.

The hormonal shifts women experience later in life, namely perimenopause and menopause, aren't talked about very often. This lack of education and awareness can lead to women feeling out of control and confused when their bodies start changing, sliding away from things they used to be able to count on.

Dr. Amy Zahm has helped many women navigate these shifts in identity and she brings a lot of useful wisdom to this conversation around the benefits that Chinese Medicine can have for women going through menopause and perimenopause. Rather than a medicalized condition that needs treating, she encourages us to view these reorganizations as part. of the natural, beautiful progression of yin and yang in the body.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Why play is so crucial and some ideas for getting started
  • What perimenopause is and what the signs of it are
  • The Chinese Medicine perspective on how different times in life are for different purposes
  • Why finding ways to slow down is often so critical in responding to signals from our bodies
  • How even taking a 60 second breathing break can help you start downregulating the nervous system

Dr. Amy Zahm is a Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine who has been practicing in rural NE Oregon for sixteen years. Amy specializes in women's health, mental and emotional health, chronic illness and pain management. She has a particular love for using the principles of Chinese Medicine to help women of all ages navigate the transitional periods of their lives with more ease and grace than our society generally allows. In addition to serving Wallowa county, she will soon be expanding her practice to include telehealth.
