“We are suffering unnecessarily because our physical bodies are out of balance.” Dr. Vora
Our guest this week is Dr. Ellen Vora, a board-certified psychiatrist, acupuncturist, and yoga teacher, and she is the author of The Anatomy of Anxiety. She takes a functional medicine approach to mental health—considering the whole person and addressing imbalance at the root. Dr. Vora received her B.A. from Yale University and her M.D. from Columbia University.
It’s normal to occasionally experience anxiety, such as when we’re faced with a high-stakes meeting, a stressed-out boss, or a conflict with a colleague. But according to the National Institute of Mental Health, in any given year, 19% of U.S. adults are suffering from an anxiety disorder, and 31% will deal with a disorder at least once in their lifetime.
Dr. Vora explains false anxiety – avoidable anxiety, causes real suffering but can have a straight forward, physical basis. When anxious, we tend to get trapped in false or limited ways of thinking – not that the feelings we are experiencing aren’t real or valid. However, these thought patterns create a debilitating negative spiral that can take over our lives by convincing us of impending doom and further exacerbating our sense of helplessness. Dr. Vora shares her tips to learn how to translate anxious feelings into purposeful action.
