Episode 21 - Holistic tips for a good night's sleep, acupressure, and integrative medicine with Kate Eskuri, RN
On today’s episode of the Positively Green Podcast we have special guest, Kate Eskuri. We chat about a ton of topics including integrative medicine and Kate’s best tips for holistic sleep. We love Kate because she balances the "woo" with the solid science, creating a safe and accessible balance between eastern and western medicine.
Kate is a Minnesota girl, registered nurse, holistic health junkie, and the voice behind The Foundation Blog, a modern woman's guide to all things slow living, integrative health, and holistic self-care. Kate got her nursing degree at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities where competed in Division I track, graduated with honors and completed years of health research introducing yoga to older female adults. Upon graduating and working as an RN at the Mayo Clinic ICU, Kate felt a longing to specialize in holistic health.
Kate is currently getting her doctorate degree in Integrative Health and Healing and is passionate about helping women maximize their health by simple + foundational health practices: quality nutrition, natural remedies, mindset-shifts, and holistic practices. Kate's healthcare experience is a unique blend of Western and Eastern. Having worked in an ICU setting and also studying integrative health, she believes in the miracle of modern medicine, but also encourages patients to get back to their "roots" of quality nutrition, slow living, and being intentional with their health.
