The Anxiety Sisters


The Spin Cycle–Episode 044

Meet Dr. Ellen Vora–holistic psychiatrist, yoga teacher, acupuncturist, self-proclaimed “witch” and all-around fantastic human. If only all of our psychiatrists (and doctors) thought like she does! You do not want to miss this episode in which we discuss her own healing journey as well as her new book, The Anatomy of Anxiety. Our convo is funny, poignant, and very thought-provoking.

About Dr. Vora:

Ellen Vora, MD received her B.A. from Yale University and attended Columbia University medical school. 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 and speaking engagements, Dr. Vora consults for healthcare startups and has written a book called The Anatomy of Anxiety.

    Oh my stars!!! I’m so glad to have listened to this podcase. (I do not know why every word starts with a capital. Some glitch in my computer). In the past 6 months, my psychiatrist (PA) has tried 4-5 different meds. None helped and caused such terrible side effects that I just couldn’t take them. A couple of them actually caused an increase in the anxiety. I was told that I just couldn’t be that sensitive to all the meds. So, I took myself off the last one, moved out of what I’m now sure was the root cause of my anxiety and am better. Still have anxiety (about the final move I have to make in a couple of months) but am able to walk/talk myself through it….most days. And this panic Button on this website….so so helpful. Thank you for this podcast!!!
