Podcasts Picks: Medicine Stories
Concrete and care-infused answers to your unasked health questions are waiting to be told
Hosted by Amber Magnolia Hill // mythicmedicine.love
Understanding ourselves through myth has been one of the oldest goals of literature and a forgotten tool of self-care as we grapple with our identities outside of algorithmic social media feeds. For those looking to unplug, reframe our self-perspectives, and reconnect with our bodies and the gnosis they carry, the Medicine Stories Podcast is a well-spring of compassionate knowledge.
A practicing herbalist with 16 years of experience, host Amber Magnolia Hill's intentions are to honor our ancestral histories, learn how to listen to the unique messages our bodies send us, and heal. The guests she brings on are other herbalists, spiritual healers, doctors, and educators who offer insights outside the dominating dialogue of the Western medicine industrial complex. Do not be surprised if this podcast literally changes your entire approach to an area of health. Episode 63: "Your Cycle, Your Self: Period Empowerment, Fertility Awareness, & the Risks of Hormonal Birth Control" with Dr. Elizabeth Wade explained the emotional and physical processes of menstruation never once offered by my gynecologists or doctors in an inclusive and wholly demystifying way. Concrete and care-infused answers to your unasked health questions are waiting to be told in the next Medicine Story.
