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.

We often talk about things like anxiety and perfectionism and when these issues are carried out to an extreme, they can sometimes lead to panic attacks. Whatever else may be going on, the root of it, as Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum identifies, is that we're scaring ourselves.

With her analogy of seeing snakes when we're really looking at a garden hose, Dr. Scheinbaum advocates patience and realistic thinking to allow our bodies to begin relaxing after trying to protect us. Our bodies react to perceived threats, which can lead to panic episodes. They also know how to relax. Our best course of action is to be patient and find ways to encourage our bodies to calm.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • How panic attacks differ from just feeling anxious
  • What some of the steps are in the process of learning to deal with panic episodes
  • The different ways Functional Medicine approaches panic attacks
  • What technique she recommends for people who may struggle with meditation
  • The benefits Dr. Scheinbaum sees in group medical visits

Dr. Sandra Scheinbaum has spent nearly five decades making healthcare and education more holistic and innovative. With a Ph.D. in clinical psychology, Dr. Sandi specialized in positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy, and mind-body medicine, and served as a teacher and the director of a clinic for Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD). She is a pioneer in her fields, having implemented programs such as the use of neurofeedback with patients and becoming the first-ever psychologist to earn certification through The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM). She is the founder of the Functional Medicine Coaching Academy in Chicago.
