Episode 205: Chinese Herbal Medicine, Neurology, and the Gut-Brain axis

with Chloe Weber, L.Ac.

Seeing herbs in action is a powerful reminder of why we can find roots of herbal medicine in basically every culture. Through a couple different ventures, Chloe Weber has done lots of great work to make Chinese Medicine and herbs accessible to more people, particularly in underserved communities.

Chloe has dedicated her life to blending her passions for public health and Chinese Medicine and she joins us to share her knowledge on herbs, the benefits they bring to public health, and so much more.

On Today’s Episode of A Healthy Curiosity:

  • Why she compares the anatomy of herbal formulas to a symphony
  • The important role digestion plays in overall health
  • How the gut-brain axis affects numerous systems throughout the body
  • What led her into building herbal formulas with CBD

Chloe developed an interest in public health and medicine after being diagnosed with Cutaneous Leishmaniasis in high school. As one of the first cases diagnosed in Costa Rica, Chloe was drawn to study Ecology and Evolutionary biology at CU Boulder where she began to understand how diseases evolve along with us and the deep connection between humans and our environment.

Eventually, Chloe was drawn to Chinese medicine as a way to address public health issues. She graduated with a Masters of Oriental Medicine from Southwest Acupuncture College in Boulder and spent time studying at Heilongjiang University Hospital in Harbin, China. After graduating, Chloe co-founded a non-profit sliding-scale walk-in Chinese herb clinic called Urban Herbs. Running her clinic Chloe was able to dive into her study of herbs and found great joy in community outreach. When her son Remy was diagnosed with a rare and debilitating genetic disorder (STXBP1) she decided to combine the power of Chinese Herbs with high quality full spectrum hemp and co-founded Radical Roots.
