“We can’t understand our own health or what it means to be healthy without understanding the context of our lives.”

Colin Hudon

Welcome to a special mid-week episode of the podcast.

During our most recent Plantpower Italia retreat, we hosted a panel discussion on the subject of holistic health and alternative healing modalities. I’m glad we decided to record it, and I’m excited to share it with you today.

The three-person panel is comprised of:

  • Angela Bäuml-Nicolas – Osteopath & physiotherapist practicing in southern Germany;
  • Jennifer Ayres – Ayurvedic Health Practitioner and teacher certified by the internationally known Ayurvedic doctor, writer, and teacher Dr. Vasant Lad; and
  • Colin Hudon – Physician of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine and founder of Living Tea, which imports some of the finest living teas in the world from Taiwan and China.

In addition to covering the panelists’ various areas of practice, this is a super engaging round table conversation designed to get you thinking pro-actively about long-term health, disease prevention and the power we all hold and exert over the quality of our well-being.

Specific topics covered include:

  • being present in life
  • connectedness between mind, body, emotions & spirit
  • relationship to nature & ill health
  • digestive health and Ayurveda
  • emotional connection to food
  • biodynamics, craniosacral therapy, & embryology
  • traditional Chinese medicine
  • genetic determinants & environmental factors
  • seasonal foods that nourish the body
  • custom cleansing for the individual
  • Ayurvedic & Chinese medicine pulse reading
  • supplements & key nutrients
  • navigating holistic medicine in the western world

I sincerely hope you enjoy the exchange!

Peace + Plants,
