The B.rad Podcast

Jan 27 2023 • 44 mins

Have you ever wondered what’s up with acupuncture?

That is the title of a wonderful new book by my friend, Dr. Jannine Krause, an acupuncturist and functional medicine practitioner. It is so beneficial for all of us to learn more about medicine, specifically beyond Western medicine, and Dr. Jannine does an incredible job harmonizing the two as you will hear in this show.

You will learn all about this incredible treatment that has been around for thousands of years, how acupuncture affects anxiety, her thoughts on parasympathetic breathing, and much more! Dr. Jannine also shares some free, quick tidbits that you can use to learn how to effectively work with pressure points yourself at home.
