Episode 107 – Anatomy of Anxiety with Dr Ellen Vora

🎙️ Welcome to another electrifying episode of Uncorked, where Holli and Jeanna fearlessly uncork the truth on the rising rates of anxiety post-pandemic. 

Holli’s burning question: Is this surge in anxiety a spiritual crisis? To help us crack the code, we’ve got the incredible Dr. Ellen Vora in the Uncorked house. Jeanna’s dubbed her with a top-secret spy name, because when it comes to holistic mental health, Dr. EV is the agent of change we’ve been waiting for. 

Conventional medicine? It’s all about symptom suppression. But Dr. Vora, she’s all about that functional medicine life. She gets to the root cause, unraveling the mysteries of your mental health struggles. 

The central question here is simple: Why are you experiencing those anxiety-ridden symptoms? It’s about addressing the problem at its fundamental core.

Mental health issues? They ain’t your destiny. It’s not just about your serotonin levels or fixing things from the neck up. Nope, the real culprit might just be a psychospiritual imbalance, where your basic human needs aren’t being met. 

Not all anxiety is created equal, folks. There’s false anxiety that’s avoidable, and then there’s the real deal. Sleep-deprived? Hungover? Extra-tall coffee? Your body’s stress response is off the charts, and that’s no way to live. 

Anxiety has its roots in both physical and psychospiritual causes. It might sound crazy, but even your blood sugar levels can trigger mental anxiety. But fear not, almond butter and coconut oil might just be your anxiety-fighting sidekicks.

We’ve been fed the story that mental health issues are all about the chemicals in our brains and that we’re destined to suffer. But Dr. Vora? She’s in the business of decreasing human suffering, and she’s not against pharmaceuticals when they’re needed. 

But there’s hope, folks! There’s a whole new perspective that’s empowering and full of promise. Want to put together a roadmap for your mental health journey? Get Dr. Vora’s book, “Anatomy of Anxiety,” and find a functional medicine practitioner to guide you through. 

It’s time to take the wheel when it comes to our mental health. There are two things keeping us tied to the old system: well-meaning doctors doing their best and a Big Pharma machine that thrives when we’re unwell. But together, we can steer toward a brighter, anxiety-free future. 

Tune in, take notes, and get ready to uncork your full mental health potential! 🍾✨ #UncorkedPodcast #MentalHealthRevolution #HolisticHealing #CrackTheCode
