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.

Ensuring that our bones stay strong throughout our health span means not waiting until retirement to think about it. Bone health expert Margie Bissinger shares how we can take care of our bones pro-actively, beyond just exercise.

In a really interesting congruency with Chinese Medicine, Margie's research and experience illustrates just how interwoven our bone health is with all kinds of other parts of our lives, even as far as our happiness. Taking care of our bones early on in our life can help us to align with being powerful and feel like the victor rather than the victim as we work with other aspects of our health.

Just as a heads up, some of the links that follow are affiliate links for Margie's programs.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Why increasingly sedentary lifestyles are driving an epidemic of osteoporosis
  • How digestive problems can affect bone density
  • The silver lining Margie identifies in an osteoporosis diagnosis
  • What effects stress can have on your bones
  • The drastic results she’s seen from teaching patients about happiness

Margie Bissinger is a physical therapist and integrative health coach. She has worked with clients in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis for over 20 years. She is the author of Osteoporosis: An Exercise Guide. Margie is the creator of Move Today, a statewide exercise program in NJ and Happy Bones, Happy Life™ online program for people to prevent and treat osteoporosis and osteopenia.
