Figuring It Out

Jun 25, 2020

If you’ve been around for awhile you know that I am all in on functional and holistic approaches to wanna find the root cause? I’m in. 


Dr. Ellen Vora is a therapist who takes a functional medicine approach to mental health by addressing diet and lifestyle. You’ve heard from Ellen once already during the mini series, but in case you missed that one, here’s a little refresh on Ellen


Ellen Vora, MD graduated from Columbia University medical school, received her B.A. in English from Yale University, and she’s a board-certified psychiatrist, medical acupuncturist, and yoga teacher. 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, Dr. Vora is also a writer, speaker, and a consultant for two healthcare startups. 


We talk about: 

  • Connecting to an “inner-knowing” and how Ellen forged this non-traditional path for herself
  • Knowing what “yes” vs “no” feels like in your body
  • The power of a pause 
  • How we can think differently about mental health diagnoses
  • The types of food to eat to support mental health specifically anxiety
  • And so much more! 

At the end of the episode, I share an organization doing good & spreading love, plus this week’s challenge.
