In this podcast I share my recent travel challenges with food, attachment and addiction to food, the legacy of food in my ancestry, how to clear out beliefs around food and nourishment, and having a healthy relationship with your gut.

This week, I’ll release three healing experientials to offer guidance in moving beyond food cravings, talking to your gut, and your own ancestral legacy of food that lives in your bones.

This meditation is part of the series of healing practices related to the Episode “From Emotional Numbness to Wholeness” which can be found at https://candicewu.com/food.

Your stomach is the holder of all information, and when backed up by too much or undigested experiences, emotions, thoughts, and senses, it can become overwhelmed, bloated, anxious or dis-eased.

Have a conversation with your gut so that it can receive all the wisdom and nourishment of any experience and physical food. Build a loving relationship so that you are in harmony and working together, metabolizing life with ease, and moving in alignment with your optimal self.

Food is anything you take in through all of your senses. In this healing experience with Family Constellations, we unfold the multiplicity of meanings of food, love, and nourishment that you receive and inherit both consciously and unconsciously in the legacy of your family ancestry. With this new awareness, we will metabolize and release the ways of being, beliefs, or Food that is not yours or serving you, giving you more clarity and openness to receive the nourishment that is strengthening.

In this lively episode, Brent Garcia and I talk about toxic comparison, reintroducing presence, how society is not set up for men being vulnerable, reclaiming vulnerability as a man, the experience of admitting pain and asking for help, the courage to see your own shame, how he changed his entire life in his forties, the dance of the healer and inner healer in clients/patients, and Western Medicine and Traditional Eastern Medicine working in Tandem!

Brent is an elite body mechanic. He came to Traditional East Asian Medicine and bodywork because he needed relief from an old Achilles tendon injury. After receiving acupuncture and massage treatments, Brent was able to function at a much higher level than he had for the previous 10 years. This motivated him to study traditional East Asian healing arts including acupuncture, herbal medicine, Asian bodywork and Tai Chi, as well as Reiki.

In 2015, Brent graduated from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Chicago with a Master of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM). He received his massage training from Pacific College as well. Now, as licensed practitioner, he continues to study anything that will help him be a better, more effective healer for his clients.

Combining traditional and modern systems of East Asian Medicine with bodywork and trigger point therapy, Brent provides custom treatments to eliminate pain and cultivate well-being in his patients. He maintains a private practice in Chicago, Illinois.
