"BodyWise: Discovering Your Body's Intelligence for Lifelong Health and Healing"

Aired on Monday, January 30th.

On this edition of StudioTulsa Medical Monday, our guest is Dr. Rachel Carlton Abrams, who has been a board member of the American Holistic Medical Association since 2013. Dr. Abrams tells us about her remarkable new book, "BodyWise: Discovering Your Body’s Intelligence for Lifelong Health and Healing." As Tori Hudson, a nurse who's also the author of "The Women's Encyclopedia of Natural Medicine," has noted of this book: "Chronic fatigue, chronic pain, chronic sleep problems, anxiety/depression, weight gain, and a decrease in sexual function are a common list of problems I see in my practice every day, often all in the same individual. Dr. Abrams has taken her 20 years of clinical experience -- her research, insights, intuition, and intellect -- to bear in producing this resourceful book for women who have one or more of these problems. Readers can gain advice on common-sense practical approaches, plus be exposed to some of the most well-known natural medicine therapies to approach their health issues. Self-help resources such as 'BodyWise' can help to turn a life towards the positive."

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
