Hey guys, Lisa here! If you didn’t already know, I am super frikin excited to share that I’m writing a book! To be the FIRST to get sneak peeks about my book and other exclusive content go to: and be sure to sign up for my newsletter.

With anxiety affecting more than 40 million Americans and 264 million people worldwide, chances are anxiety and stress have been affecting you too. Anxiety is more common in women, as we are twice as likely to be diagnosed than men. What’s the best solution for anxiety and is it a one size fits all kind of band-aid? Dr. Ellen Vora breaks down why treating anxiety strictly as mental health without looking at the entire body is problematic. Not only will it be beneficial to your anxiety and stress levels to look at your diet and lifestyle for clues to treat your anxiety, but it’s also a game changer and Dr. Vora is simplifying ways to address anxiety and lower your stress levels dramatically.

Check ut Ellen Vora’s new book, The Anatomy of Anxiety:

Dr. Vora takes a functional medicine approach to mental health, considering the whole person and addressing imbalance at the root, rather than reflexively prescribing medication. In addition to her private practice and speaking engagements, Dr. Vora consults for healthcare startups as well.

“A lot of what’s happening in our brain, […] it’s often a downstream effect of things that are happening elsewhere in the body.” [1:03]

“Many seemingly benign really common aspects of modern life are getting our body out of balance. And oftentimes it precipitates a stress response.” [4:57]

“Avoid the temptation to pathologize it, we want to see it as not the nuisance or the symptom to suppress, but the communication to heed.” [17:16]

“It’s all about teaching ourselves not to betray ourselves, and if in that moment, not having the drink is the act of radical self love, we’re now better at that we’ve developed that skill and kind of cultivated it.” [26:20]

“A really healthy goal is to kind of see this as well, what is building towards a fulfilling life? Sometimes it’s more motivation, discipline, goals, and sometimes it’s a little bit less.” [30:14]

“A lot of times we’re anxious because we don’t have enough healthy fats in our diet, or because we’re micronutrient deficient.” [37:24]

“If you’re someone who needs nine hours of sleep, rather than feeling like, ‘well, that’s not fair, other people get to live more life’, just own it, embrace it and protect it fiercely and unapologetically.” [42:50]

“We don’t just exist for productivity, we also exist to have a little bit of spaciousness to just enjoy what is to be enjoyed about the human experience.” [53:40]
