Body-typing: Ancient Wisdom to Balance Mind, Body and Spirit :064

Body-typing is Tara’s interpretation and integration of the ancient wisdom of using constitutional analysis to understand oneself more deeply

… and therefore gain awareness of how our own personal attributes can be used in the most productive way in order to create more peace with ourselves and with others. Tara Baklund, founder and creator of the Weight Free Wellness blog and podcast, teaches listeners how body-typing can be used to holistically find mind-body-spirit balance within, with others, and with the world. Tara shares wisdom that she gained during her healing journey, and how her struggles ultimately led her to use technology as a means of spreading a true holistic approach to wellness with others worldwide. Listeners will gain both philosophical and practical insight on how to use body-typing to cultivate more balance in all areas of their lives, including self-acceptance, food choices, relationship dynamics, and more.

In this podcast, Tara discusses:

  • The mission of the Weight Free Wellness podcast, and how technology can be used to more efficiently spread the word of wellness throughout the world
  • The meaning behind the title “Weight Free Wellness”, and how a mind-shift away from weight as a metric of health is crucial to the wellness movement
  • Why it’s important to “learn to live with our bodies rather than in them”
  • How “healing can and does happen in an instant”
  • How the spirit in which we approach healing greatly determines the success of our healing journey
  • How do use the ancient wisdom of body typing to find a balanced interaction with ourselves and with others at all levels of existence: mind, body, and spirit
  • To take Tara’s body-typing quiz to find out your unique body type and get a free e-course on how to use body-typing in your life.

What is Acupuncture, Really? with Michael Max of the Everyday Acupuncture Podcast :059

The Acupuncturist who doesn’t like needles… helps Dispel some Acupuncture Myths

My guest, acupuncturist and podcast host, Michael Max joins me to clarify what acupuncture is, and what it isn’t. Michael decided to study acupuncture, despite having a successful career in the technology industry, because of the dramatic effect it had on his chronic respiratory issues. What makes his story even more unique is that he doesn’t like needles… Watch, Listen, Enjoy!

 

Here’s what we talked about:

  • How chronic respiratory issues prompted this successful, former high tech. person to study and become an Acupuncturist (who doesn’t like needles)
  • How does Acupuncture work?
  • Are the needles like the needles we know from getting a vaccination?
  • Is Acupuncture woo-woo or science?
  • Do you have to believe in Acupuncture or understand it for it to work?
  • Does it work for everyone? Will it work right away?
  • How to find a reputable practitioner.
  • Which herbal remedies are the best?
  • Other than in California that has its own exam, look for the NCCAOM qualification which is a national exam and requires 3 years of training.
  • Does it hurt?
  • The common myths about Acupuncture
  • Do certain people or conditions respond quicker or better? (eg. digestion, anxiety, fertility)
  • About the Everyday Acupuncture Podcast
  • We know that sugar is bad… but what about fruit?
  • Book – Good Calories, Bad Calories
  • Examples of what Michael puts in his morning shakes: kale, apple, nut butter, herbs, turmeric, spirulina, collard greens, water (no ice – and why – especially if you have issues with your menstrual cycle or digestion)

About Michael Max

michael-max-BWHello, I’m Michael Max.

I’ve been a student of acupuncture and Chinese medicine for going on 20 years now. It began as a curiosity as to how a few needles could not only resolve a stubborn health condition I’d had since childhood, but also improve my digestion, quality of sleep and mood. This lead me first to acupuncture school, and then Asia where I worked my way through the gate of Chinese language so I could study with doctors there. Today my work is informed by my clinical practice, the materials I read in Chinese from doctors of centuries past, and the teachers of our modern times who synthesize observations of the past with the challenges of the present.

I am the host of The Everyday Acupuncture podcast. It is a way to capture that clinically honed wisdom and share it with the world through the increasingly popular media stream of podcasting.

These podcasts run between 45-60 minutes. You can tune in at any time to the shows you are interested in learning more about. And unlike radio, you can listen at your convenience to the shows that are of interest to you.

Everyday Acupuncture is here to educate, entertain, give practical advice, inspire and encourage actionable change that assists you in improving your wellbeing. And all without requiring you to understand a lick of Chinese!
