California Natural Living Podcast - Hosted by Jessica Iclisoy
In this episode, Jessica speaks with Dr. Hui, a professor, and director of the UCLA Center for East-West Medicine. Dr. Hui's specialty is blending modern biomedicine and traditional Chinese medicine to empower his patients to take control of their health and manage chronic conditions.
This collaborative approach between the two disciplines treats each person as a whole, rather than the sum of their parts, and optimizes wellness by focusing on the connection between the mind and body.
Watch this informative talk with UCLA's Dr. Hui:
Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), which views the body as an integrated system, has been practiced and refined over the last 3,000-plus years. Through this lens, it’s not surprising that imbalance or inflammation in our body can manifest as skin conditions like eczema, including baby eczema. Where biomedicine focuses on targeting the symptom(s) of disease, TCM sees symptoms as clues to a larger systemic problem. It’s the difference between asking how can I make this stop now versus why is this happening?
Self-care isn’t just doing something nice for yourself. It’s taking the time and doing the work to prioritize health and wellbeing. Addressing stress triggers in your daily life and how you can manage your stress response will set you up for a healthier, happier and more stress-resilient you day after day. To take control of your wellness journey, register today for UCLA’s summer session on Integrative East-West Medicine for Health & Wellness.
