Joining me was Thuy Nguyen, a new producer/host on About Health.
“Connection is at the heart of Chinese medicine—the understanding that everything is connected internally as well as externally. Internally, mind-body-spirt. Externally, person-family-community. That is why we say: Heal Yourself, Heal Your Community. The awareness of our inseparable connection brings home the influence of our well-being on the community and the well-being of the community on us. We are all in this together. When you heal, we heal.”—Berkeley Community Acupuncture.
Thuy Nguyen has been practicing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for over 20 years and is the founder and director at Berkeley Community Acupuncture, a clinic making TCM widely accessible. She is also the creator of the Navajo Healing Project, a unique project aimed at introducing TCM to the Dine community in a way that is relevant, healing and empowering. Thuy is a maker and a mother of 3 teenagers and 2 dogs. In addition, she produces radio shows for About Health on KPFA.org. At the heart of all she does is the desire to illuminate our inseparable connection to Nature and one another, and to offer an understanding of ourselves and our well-being that is empowered and life affirming.
