Episode Twelve: Interview With Doctor Russell Kennedy: Stop Believing Everything you Think! How To Overcome Anxiety and Stress With The Anxiety MD
I’m thrilled to be featuring The Anxiety MD a.k.a., Dr. Russell Kennedy on this episode! His passion and energy for finding solutions to overcome anxiety and helping others through a variety of methods is uplifting and the work he does in the fields of healing and self-growth; profound. Our conversation is PACKED with golden nuggets of wisdom to help you blast through your blocks, decrease stress, overcome your anxiety in the NOW and ultimately cultivate a deeper understanding of, compassion for and connection to yourself and others.
Dr. Russell Kennedy, aka The Anxiety MD, is a part medical doctor, part brain science geek, part rebel, and part stand-up comic (no joke). His passion lies in helping people get more true feeling and less false thinking in their lives. A recovered stressed out, burned-out medical doctor, Dr. Russ wants to show you that healing stress and anxiety has much more to do with the body than the mind. His experiences with LSD, Ayahuasca, Psilocybin, and MDMA have given him insights into his own anxiety and provided non-traditional ways of understanding and alleviating our worries and fears.
Dr. Russ is finishing a book tentatively called "The Anxiety Rx" to be published in late 2019 and is designed to show anxious, stressed-out people how to SEE their stress so they don't have to BE their stress. For those committed to changing their feeling state, Russ offers personal and group sessions and can easily be found all over social media by searching "The Anxiety MD".
