Women Today interview Mindi K. Counts, acupuncturist, herbalist, author, non-profit founder and all-around amazing woman about her early childhood trauma and how she has found a sense of security and belonging in herself despite all odds.
Mindi is such a beautiful soul who cares immensely about this world and the people, plants, and animals in it and longs to live in a time where there is awareness of our inherent connection to Mother Earth, as well as a felt sense of global community that permeates all we do, think, and feel.
Valeria interviews Mindi K. Counts, the author of Everyday Chinese Medicine: Healing Remedies for Immunity, Vitality & Optimal Health - A friendly guide to a 2,000-year-old lineage of healing wisdom integrates both the Five Element theory, and the practices of traditional Chinese medicine.
Understanding our traits and tendencies through the Five Element framework allows us to see ourselves in a new light, so we can make better decisions in our daily life, and steer ourselves in the direction of health rather than disease.
This friendly guide to a 2,000-year-old lineage of healing wisdom integrates both the Five Element theory and the practices of traditional Chinese medicine to uncover what your body needs for balance and optimal health.
Feng Shui is often misrepresented as the art of simply beautifying a place (not that beauty isn't thoroughly enjoyed!) or can even be used superficially such as to call in a new relationship by strategically placing an object in your house or yard.
Bodywork is essential for a well-rounded and healthy lifestyle. Our bodies need to be worked and our tissues and fluids need to be moved throughout our systems regularly to help keep us feeling alive and with more energy.
Cosmology reminds us of our greater purpose and inherent connection with all of life. That we humans exist most perfectly between Heaven and Earth is part of Taoist Cosmology and is one of the Eight Branches in Chinese medicine.
Movement Therapy (i.e. Exercise) is considered one vital aspect to attaining health and balance in our world. Our bodies must move each day to stay strong inside ourselves, to nourish our organs, and to frequently provide each cell in our bodies the opportunity for replenishment.
Acupuncture focuses on moving energy in the body, mind, and spirit by using hair-thin needles to guide a person's chi back into balance. In addition to acupuncture, we use moxibustion to further enhance the effectiveness of our treatments.
Nutrition is one of the Eight Branches of Chinese medicine. In this video, Mindi explains the importance of having a well-rounded approach to healing and how there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition.
Herbal Medicine has been used for centuries in simple recipes, self-care practices, and time-tested herbal remedies. Mindi walks you through a brief history and how herbal medicine supports you on your healing journey.
