    Body Mapping to Calm the Nervous System

    Body Mapping to Calm the Nervous System

    Our bodies are smart. We can get bogged down in focusing on different cues for how we think our body should be moving or feeling, but Alicia Fajardo encourages us to ease back on those expectations and trust in the wisdom of our bodies. 
    If you're interested in learning more about how your body works as an interconnected whole, this conversation on how we think about the substance and space of who we are will really resonate. By paying attention to how different parts of our body relate to each other in space, we can start to unpack and adjust the effects of things like pain and stress on our bodies.

    Stress & sleep: geeking out on Chinese herbs, cannabis

    For both men and women, it's tough to slow down. The effects of not slowing down can end up seeping into our lives in aspects like stress and trouble sleeping which can put us in a fog. When we're in that fog and it seems like the windshield is covered with bugs, it's difficult to find balance and what Stacey Donelson calls our true north.
    Stacey acts as a helper and a historian through her Good Life Acupuncture and Wellness Center and Good Life Botanicals practices to help lift that fog and clear the windshield.

    Imperfect Allyship

    Imperfect Allyship

    Privilege has a lot of layers. Each of us, particularly in dominant groups, often benefit from several different layers, which makes the work of unpacking our privilege incredibly important as a step towards helping to bring other voices to the table through allyship.
    Erica Courdae shares her wisdom on imperfect allyship as a way to get moving with this emotional work, because perfectionism tends to lead to inaction and that doesn’t help anyone. In order to be healthy, we need to be connected to healthy communities and by working to help everyone be seen and heard, we can improve our communities for everyone in them.
    On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:
    What imperfect allyship is and why it’s important How improving your allyship is no different than any other skill Why microaggressions, that are sometimes less overt, are no less hurtful and damaging Tips for bringing your whole self to holiday gatherings and maintaining your wellbeing Erica Courdae is an entrepreneur, coach, and consultant. She is dedicated to expanding how multicultural professionals, managers, lawyers, coaches, and creative small business owners interact with the world. Through powerful conversations meant to create dialogue and connection, Erica seamlessly challenges them to perceive their reality through a different lens. Topics including diversity, equality, equity, and inclusion make for the awareness that she uses to create mind shifts for impact. In life and in business. Erica believes talking about important and necessary topics in a safe space creates change and helps people feel comfortable, open, honest, and forward-focused.

    Stopping Panic Attacks

    Stopping Panic Attacks

    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.

    7-Day Clean Eating Detox - an Ayurvedic and Functional Medicine approach

    7-Day Clean Eating Detox - an Ayurvedic and Functional Medicine approach

    Living in today's industrialized society, we're exposed to environmental toxins that can overload our systems. Combine that with the junk in processed foods and it becomes more important than ever to do the occasional dietary reset. Dr. Alejandro Junger was forced to learn this lesson himself and has been endeavoring to help others do the same ever since.
    While moving in the direction of living healthily requires effort, Dr. Junger has created programs that are an accessible on-ramp to help people take better care of themselves. Combining principles of functional medicine and Ayurvedic medicine, his system goes further into helping find ways to reset and detoxify our bodies.
    On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:
    How growing up in Uruguay and then moving to New York informed Dr. Junger's path The general mechanics of how toxic materials can build up in the body and how the body detoxifies Why our bodies can’t deal with the overload of toxins on their own Ways to support the pathways for detoxifying in our bodies Alejandro Junger, M.D., is the New York Times bestselling author of Clean, Clean Gut, Clean Eats, and most recently, Clean7. He completed his training in internal medicine at New York University Downtown Hospital and his fellowship in cardiology at Lenox Hill Hospital. After his medical training, he studied eastern medicine in India.Now, in Clean7, he aims to make health transformations more accessible and easier to implement, especially for all whose fast-paced lifestyles means putting their health on the back burner.
