How to Cope with Anxiety

We’ve all experienced anxiety at some point in our lives. For some of us it’s chronic and for others it may be more situational. But right now, with the outbreak of COVID-19, there is no denying that our collective anxiety is at an all-time high. According to Dr. Ellen Vora, you can minimize your anxiety naturally, no matter where you fall on the spectrum.

Having graduated from Columbia University medical school and Yale University undergrad, Dr. Vora is a board-certified psychiatrist, acupuncturist, and yoga teacher specializing in depression, anxiety, insomnia, women’s mental health, adult ADHD, autoimmunity and digestive issues.

While in medical school, Ellen experienced mental health challenges but wasn’t satisfied with the solutions that were offered to her. Feeling as if she was being treated as a collection of ailments rather than a whole person, Ellen went on to develop a compassionate and functional medicine approach to mental health which addresses the root problem rather than automatically prescribing medication to suppress symptoms.

Now running her own holistic psychiatry practice in New York, Ellen shares how to better cope with anxiety by managing blood sugar, tools to connect to your intuition, how to avoid diet dogma (and listen to your body!), ways to eradicate stress during the Coronavirus pandemic, and so much more!

You’ll feel empowered to implement lifestyle shifts to calm your nervous system and reduce anxiety right now.

How to Have More Fun Cooking and Eating

Have you ever felt like healthy eating and having fun can’t coexist? Rachel Mansfield, author, podcast host, recipe developer, and Instagram sensation, believes that feeling your best doesn’t mean adhering to restrictive diets or giving up all the foods you crave.

Since getting fired from her job over four years ago and pursuing her brand full time, Rachel created a community of hundreds of thousands of people by sharing deliciously, wholesome recipes that fuel your body and soul. In 2019, she became a first-time mama and while pregnant, she wrote her debut cookbook, Just the Good Stuff: One Hundred Plus Guilt Free Recipes to Satisfy All Your Cravings.

Although it may seem that Rachel is the picture of balance and freedom, her relationship with food hasn’t always been easy. As a child, Rachel loved to eat and adored all-American junk-food classics, but as she grew up, the happiness she experienced around eating turned to stress.

Realizing that her restrictive ways were harming her health both mentally and physically, Rachel began to explore in the kitchen while healing her food and body image struggles. Thousands of mouthwatering recipes later, Rachel shares why living a label-less lifestyle leads to more joy, innovative ways to recreate classic comfort foods, the true meaning of food freedom, and more!

You’ll feel inspired to release the rules, get playful in the kitchen, and enjoy foods that not only taste good but feel good, too!

The Most Modern Approach to Holistic Health

Have you had a desire to live more holistically, but felt like alternative forms of treatment were too overwhelming, too woo-woo, or simply just not meant for you?

Danny Steiner and Krista Berlincourt, founders of the new online health platform Kenshō, believe ‘healthy’ should measure all of you: how you’re doing physically, mentally, and emotionally. Determined to fill in the gaps where the current healthcare system is failing us, they created a modern guide to holistic health that’s accessible, affordable, and available from anywhere around the globe.

Before founding Kenshō, Krista traveled thousands of miles, crossing continents, deserts, and seas in search of a natural cure for the adrenal failure that left her hospitalized when conventional medicine hadn’t worked for her. She then moved to Los Angeles where she met Danny, a fellow entrepreneur who had adopted a plant-based diet and meditation practice at age 14 in hopes of warding off the autoimmune disease that plagued most of his family.

Now on a mission to help people get better and be better, Danny and Krista share why community is key for healing, cutting edge research on the benefits of holistic healing practices, how to reduce information overload to find the right solutions, and SO MUCH more!

Tune in and let Danny and Krista empower you to look outside of conventional medicine and add alternative forms of healing to your holistic healthcare toolbox!
