    Hi, welcome to season one of Through the Funnel. I'm your host, Malerie Giaimo. Together we will journey through one of the oldest, most mystical, yet simple, medical resources in the world. Everything from pathology and Western science to nature, human behavior, emotions, and spirituality can be put through the funnel of Chinese medicine. In each of these podcasts, you’ll hear from many experts in the field, myself, and some of my closest friends and teachers. The medicine as I have learned it is based in Daoism. Its teachings and philosophy will be discussed as well. For reference, these episodes were organized and produced in 2023. I hope this first season opens you to the door of Chinese and natural medicine and you never look back. See you on the inside! --- Hi, I'm Malerie - your host, Diplomate of Oriental Medicine (Dipl.
