In this episode, we speak with Heaven Celeste Thunder, a mother and medicine maker about her journey into ancestral medicine and motherhood.
Heaven’s current education in traditional Chinese medicine and traditional Mexican medicine began alongside her involvement with Aztec dance and ceremony. She entered a formal Master’s program in Traditional Chinese Medicine and an informal regathering and remembering of ancient Mexican medicine. Both of these forms of nature-based medicine look at the entire health of the individual instead of looking at the symptoms or diseases.
The vision of Heaven’s private clinical practice will tie East Asian and Meso-american medicine together to support health and well-being on all levels: mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical. She plans to emphasize her pursuit of studying Womxn’s Health and Pediatrics with a strong foundation in the emotional-spiritual.
