AustCham Podcast |Healthy Living in an Urban World with Dr. Melissa

Amidst rising concerns of finding ways to pursue healthy living here in Beijing, AustCham’s Podcast Team sat down with Dr. Melissa Rodriguez of Beijing United Family Hospital to chat about all things health.

A seasoned practitioner of naturopathic medicine, Dr. Melissa gave us insights of how to follow a balanced lifestyle by taking small steps to integrate weekly doses of exercise with a smattering of home-cooked meals. Indeed, according to Dr. Melissa: you only have one body/mind so if you don’t take care of it, who will? So we hope that many of our listeners will be inspired to pursue healthy living and start off 2017 guided by some of the tips from the AustCham Podcast!
