For the last episode of 2016 Jill visits popular psychotherapist and author Karol Ward. Karol has been on the show many times before and her advice has always proven to be invaluable. On this week’s show Jill and Karol discuss what constitutes “healing” and where we tend to fall short in our self-healing processes. Then Jill is joined by chef Celine Beitchman. Celine is an infectiously enthusiastic instructor at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City where they offer classes on how we can change our cooking to embrace food sustainability and self healing. Jill and Celine discuss the courses that are on offer at the institute as well as the small ways in which we can change our diet to improve our food lifestyle. Lastly Jill sits down with Claudia Citkovitz who completed a PhD in how acupuncture can aid stroke therapy. Claudia’s study reveals some interesting results and discusses them with Jill on this week’s show.
Karol Ward is back on the show for the last time in 2016. As many of you know by now Karol is a psychotherapist and has found success in her life helping couples and individuals address the ways in which they are preventing themselves from growing or finding happiness. She’s been on the show many times before to talk about topics like self-awarness, confidence, and ways in which we sabotage our relationships. On this week’s show Karol and Jill address the topic of self-healing. Jill and Karol are both healers in their respective fields and they shed some light on how we can sometimes get in our own way in our lives and what we can do help ourselves.
We’re really excited to have chef Celine Beitchman on for the cook segment of this weeks’s show. Chef Celine is an instructor at the magnificent Natural Gourmet Institute in New York. The institute is a leader in health-supportive culinary education and has graduated over 2,500 chefs from over 45 countries. Their mission is to empower chefs, individuals and communities to be leaders in the conversation about food and wellbeing through the preparation of healthful and delicious meals. It’s fair to say they do a fantastic job too. Chef Celine takes us through some of the courses that are on offer at the institute and gives some insight into what she keeps in her pantry to ensure that she always has the ingredients to rustle up something healthy and hearty.
We’re joined by Chinese medicine practitioner Claudia Citkovitz for the heal section of the show. Claudia undertook a fascinating study for her PhD where she examined the relationship between acupunture and stroke therapy. We’ve talked about acupuncture and the wonderful ways in which it continues to help people a lot on this show but the work that Claudia has done highlights the positive effects that Chinese medicine can have on the recovery processes of serious diseases. Claudia’s work has been so success that she is one of the first points of call for incoming stroke patients at her hospotal where she works very closely with its doctors.
