29. Holistic Edge Radio Guest Richard Brown, MD - Integrative Psychiatrist tells Us his Journey as a Holistic Healer Pt 1. Host Enoe Aracely Brown April 25, 2024

Today we get to understand the making of an integrative psychiatrist, who practices as an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Columbia University; and how his life journey formed his worldview about healing. He tells us about the influences, at times positive and other times negative, shaped the type of doctor he would become. He speaks about his childhood, with a grandfather he healed others using medicinal mushrooms to indigenous people's reservations in Wyoming where he witnessed other forms of healing take place. How his work was influenced by other cultures of the world when he learned Aikido from a Japanese Master to the Tibetan herbs and breathwork exercises he researched and developed to treat 911 survivors from toxic chemicals they inhaled, to others in today's war zones across the world or big cities. (Part 2 to follow  Episode 30)
