Description

I am an anxious doctor. Or at least I WAS an anxious doctor. After literally decades of suffering from intractable anxiety, and seeing over 50 different types of healers I found my way to heal my anxiety through very unconventional (for a medical doctor at least) means. In 2013 I was so anxious I considered suicide and a friend suggested I try LSD, and although that scared the crap out of me it showed me the path to healing. You don't have to do LSD to heal, I took it for you! I'm a medical doctor, neuroscientist and intuitive. (I know, common combination!) I found my way out and it is counterintuitive and very non conventional (but not scary!). I will show you the way out too, you just have to listen to me, dammit!

Episode Date
Health Anxiety With The Anxiety MD, Dr. Russ
22:03

Health anxiety has very little to do with your health!

For us worriers, becoming fixated on your health (Google it!) is seen as a more “acceptable” option than dealing with old pain.

We resist feeling the alarm energy in our body by being endlessly trapped in the (health) worries of our mind.

The Neuroscience Behind 7 Traits of Anxious People
29:46

In this episode I NERD OUT and go into the neuroscience behind 7 traits of anxious people because I believe that knowing the science helps us & creates more awareness.

The truth is, anxiety is your brain acting normally, to an abnormal situation.

The REAL Cause of your Anxiety - And it’s NOT What You Think!
20:32

The real cause of anxiety has very little to do with the mind and much more to do with old pain trapped in the body.

Until we address this root cause, we will never truly be able to HEAL our anxiety, only COPE with it...

Find your ALARM
19:50

You don't have anxiety, you have alarm.

That alarm is in your body and you need to feel it to heal it. But first you need to find it!

This episode is about seeing the true source and root cause of what you call "anxiety" i.e the alarm that is stored in your body.

Once you find your alarm you are well on your way to healing from chronic worry.

You Can’t Think Your Way out of a Feeling Problem
19:00

When we are "anxious" our automatic urge is to figure a way out of the feeling. But what if the problem with anxiety is too much thinking to start with?

You can't fix over thinking with more thinking, right? You must learn how to FEEL your way out.

How I discovered I had anxiety (& alarm) how it tormented me, & how I found a way out.
24:43

Episode 13 of the Anxiety Rx podcast is much of my story.

How I discovered I had anxiety (and alarm) how it tormented me, and how I found a way out.

I ramble quite a bit in this one, probably because I was triggered going into the most painful parts of my life.

It shares my experience with chronic anxiety and alarm and I hope that my healing journey provides insights you can use for your healing journey.

Failing To See The Cues Of Safety
15:03

Many of us worriers have a "sunscreen" view of the world in that we block out 99% of the safety that is all around us.

If you can't see and commit to the world as a safe place, of course we are going to stay in ALARM.

If we believe the focus on threat keeps us safe, we will experience the exact opposite!

Do you allow yourself to RECEIVE?
10:40

Do you allow yourself to receive? Or are you doing most of the people pleasing/giving to others?

When we see the world as a place that does not nourish us enough, as was often our childhood circumstance, we learn not to expect the world to help us, and actually CREATE a world that stops feeding us.

We often BLOCK and RESIST any help the world does give us, and then blame the world for not filling our needs... INABILITY TO RECEIVE is a chapter in my book "Anxiety Rx", and if we don't see how we block good things coming to us, we will sabotage our own perception of the world, seeing it as a place where we don't get enough.

But often we do get "enough", but just resist receiving it!

2 factors that make Anxiety & Alarm SO MUCH WORSE
14:17

Anxiety and alarm are made so much worse by two things: UNCERTAINTY and RESISTANCE.

In fact, combining the two, it is our resistance to uncertainty and the alarm that creates in our physiology that is the origin of our worries.

In this episode of the Anxiety Rx Podcast, I talk about recognizing and neutralizing these two factors that make our lives so much more painful than it has to be.

Dedication & Preface of My Book, Anxiety Rx.
11:03

As the podcast is a direct result of the book, Anxiety Rx, I've made the Dedication and Preface for the book Episode 9 of the podcast.

This will give you a feel for where everything started for me and why I've made it my life's work to helping others with anxiety.

I don't want anyone to have to suffer like I did, and I wanted my dad's pain and eventual suicide to be a force for good. 

I'd love to hear your comments. Find me on my IG page, @theanxietymd

Why MD's Can't Heal Anxiety
23:05

In this episode I talk about why your MD can't heal your anxiety.

We MDs are not trained (or aware) of the impact of childhood wounding and the ALARM it creates in the body, and even if we were, we don't know how to deal with it other than to prescribe medication.

Even psychiatrists (MD's who specialize in psychiatry) are doing much less therapy, moving more to medications as well, and "Pills Don't Teach Skills" - In this episode I share some "skills" so that you can heal your anxiety.

You can find me on IG: @theanxietymd if you have any questions.

Dark Night of the Soul
27:47

I've had many people ask me about psychedelics in the past couple of weeks. Specifically, if psychedelics could help them overcome their anxiety.

I learned things by taking LSD, Ayahuasca and Psilocybin that I would NEVER known or come across as a traditional medical doctor.

In this episode I include chapter 53 of my book ANXIETY RX, entitled, "Dark Night of the Soul".

It discusses the good, the bad, and the ugly in my very personal journey taking psychedelics —and the role they played in showing me what anxiety TRULY was, and how they helped me heal it in myself and others; but not without paying a significant emotional price.

Devaluing Ourselves
13:43

Many of us with anxiety devalue ourselves.

We look after others' needs ahead of our own and often succumb to the stigma of being "anxious" or say "I have anxiety".

When we devalue ourselves like this, it makes it much harder to accept ourselves —and self acceptance is one of the cornerstones to healing...

Head on over to my IG, @theanxietymd and let me know how this episode resonated with you.

LET GO OF THE BANANA!
10:38

In this episode I talk about how our thoughts seduce us into believing and holding on to them, and how even though we know those thoughts hurt us, we can't seem to stop thinking them.

I have also enclosed chapter 4 from my soon to be released audible version of my book "Anxiety Rx" called "Let Go of the Banana."

As always, I'd love for you to send me DM on my IG @theanxietymd if you have any questions or would like to share your thoughts.

Are you taking JABS at yourself?
12:58

This episode is about how we aren't actually suffering from anxiety, we are suffering from ALARM and how we create alarm in ourselves in the first place by forgetting our innocence.

When we forget our innocence we begin Judging, Abandoning, Blaming and Shaming (JABS) ourselves which only exacerbates the alarm and then we can never escape the alarm-anxiety cycle.

As always, I'd love for you to send me DM on my IG @theanxietymd if you have any questions or would like to share your thoughts.

The Biggest Mistake We Make in Treating Anxiety
11:04

The biggest mistake we make in treating anxiety is believing it’s because of the thoughts in our mind.

What we refer to as “anxiety” is, at its core, a sense of ALARM from old childhood trauma stored in the body.

Because the thoughts of worry IMMEDIATELY come before the FEELING of alarm, we make the mistake of believing the thoughts are the cause.

Treating the thoughts alone WILL NOT fix the FEELING of anxiety.... 

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the episode.

You can find me on IG under @theanxietymd
