When Practitioners Get Sick
This week on Heavenly Qi Clare is joined by Dr. Randine Lewis, author of The Infertility Cure, and a leading expert in treating infertility conditions combining Eastern and Western based medicine. They’re talking all things practitioner wellness including why practitioners find it so hard to ask for help when they’re sick and the role of western medicine when treating yourself and others.
Body Image and Fertility Treatment
A metabolically healthy person can exist in a body of any shape or size. With that in mind this episode of the Heavenly Qi Podcast has co-hosts Clare Pyers and Naava Carman dissecting the many issues surrounding body size and fertility. Including a deep dive into the problems that arise from the use of Body Mass Index (BMI).
Creativity versus Service
Do you have a self care list? In these extraordinarily difficult times the balance between service and self care and has never been more difficult to maintain. Most of us in the last year have, at least at some point, been in a "fight-or-flight" state which has many negative consequences for our health. Clare Pyers and Naava Carman talk openly about their personal journeys and discuss ways to keep you and your patients in a balanced state.
The Use Of Herbs In Pregnancy And Postpartum
The tendency is to consider a pregnancy so delicate that we should take a ‘hands off’ approach to treatment especially in the first trimester. Sharon Weizenbaum joins Clare Pyers to dispel fears and give practitioners a solid grounding on giving herbs during this important time. There is a fundamental lack of text books on this subject and so Sharon has begun the arduous task of translating some of the ancient Chinese texts into English. If you can read Chinese then this may be your calling.
Gender and Sexuality
It is essential that everyone who comes to our clinic feels respected, included and heard. The emergence of the LGBT community represents some significant challenges to not only practitioners but to society as a whole. In this podcast Co-hosts Naava Carman and Clare Pyers explore the issues involved in creating a ‘safe place’ - for all of our patients.
Left me tingling with inspirations and aspirations! Deep knowledge and understanding on the topics discussed by the host and the guest. And the knowledge is openly shared and humbly discussed. Actionable tips and practical guidance in holding space for our patients really got me excited! Thank you for putting this out in the world!
So inspiring and natural
As a TCM student this podcast has given me the “hug” I need in a very difficult course. You are both so calming and encouraging of this career path and lifestyle, can’t thank you enough.
Thrilling information and guests
Heavenly qi is a wonderful podcast that is documenting all that is on offer in Chinese medicine today. The presenters have a knack for finding people with especially deep knowledge and experience and allowing them to open up about the areas they are passionate about. Listening to this podcast is really a thrill, and a teaser for what is possible in the world of oriental medicine . Already I’m making plans to hunts down their guests for further education!
