Did the Woman Accused of Killing Her Kids Have Postpartum Depression?

"There is an interesting case in Massachusetts of a woman who has been arrested and accused of killing her at three children. And when Debbie and I were discussing the case, the whole issue of postpartum syndrome came up. Depression. Postpartum. Well, I guess there's postpartum. There's anxiety. Yeah, it's postpartum depression or postpartum psychosis. Right. And those aren't all exactly the same, but you know something about this. So let's talk about what do you think happened here? Let's give a couple of details. The woman's name is Lindsey clancy. She's just 32. She's some ducks very Massachusetts. So the question becomes, what on earth would make a mom? A mom will obviously wanted these children. And three of them to do the bizarre act, which would seem to run totally against nature of killing her own children. Why would somebody do that? Well, as it turns out, there is a potential or a possible medical explanation. Right. So postpartum depression is actually quite common. It's not, it's not super uncommon. I had it with my firstborn with Justin, who is going to be 28 soon, so a long time ago. But, you know, it's one of these things that you have a baby and you think you're just going to be like beaming with happiness because you just had a child. But what happens is your hormones become like just completely just jumbled haywire, right? And then you become, well, I, at least in my situation, I became very, very sad, crying just about everything and anything. I also became very possessive of Justin and I didn't want people to hold him. I was extremely agitated by just even light. I had to have all the shades drawn. And so I was diagnosed actually with postpartum depression,

Hong Kong to ban CBD, label it a 'dangerous drug'

Supporters of the marijuana derived CBD say it can treat a range of ailments, including anxiety and users don't get high, but starting February 1st, CBD oil will be illegal in Hong Kong and officials like Chan Kai Ho of Hong Kong's customs airport command say there will be harsh penalties for possession, including up to life in prison and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. For the long run we have to conduct educations to let the people know that CBD is kind of like dangerous drugs. They are in a lot of cocaine. Hong Kong announced the ban last year, and officials say businesses that have sold products that contain CBD have had months to get rid of those products. I'm Donna water

A Prayer for Peace in Unstable Times

"No matter what is going on around us, we can find an unshakable confidence in the lord because he is ever faithful to us. This is why staying in the word consistently is so important when experiencing stressful or unstable times. Faith comes by hearing the word of God, Romans ten 17, and the more we are studying the scriptures, the stronger our trust in God becomes, the word of God is so powerful and the more we study and meditate on it, our foundation will be strong in price and will continually know how to look to him any time stress and anxiety tries to overtake us. Let us always be quick to ask the lord for his sustaining grace and help us in our time of need, looking to him always because he cares for us. No matter what is going on around us, even if it seems like everything is falling apart, we must remember that God holds the entire universe in his hands. He is completely sovereign. Nothing passes through his hands by accident. He is in total control and has a great plan regarding all of it. We can trust in him and rest in his great perfect peace. Let us set our mind upon him. Let's pray. Lord, thank you that you want us to set our minds upon you at all times. Thank you that there is no where I can go that you are not there with me. Thank you for having a hold of my life, even as I feel like everything is crumbling around me. I confess that I have let stress take a hold of my life rather than you. I've tried to control things in my life and at the same time I've let anxiety control my mood, my attitudes and my actions. Lord, I repent of this. Please father help me see what is stressful or worrisome in my life and hand it over to you, help me actively think on your goodness to me. I am so hopeful for my eternity with you, lord, where the presence of sin and fear will no longer be there. Help me look back on all the ways you have rescued me from my fearful moments and remember where you have always been faithful to me in the midst of great trials. Help me to rest in the truth of your goodness and power today. Thank you, ward, for your perfect peace. In Jesus name, amen.

Fighting Fear With God

Fighting Fear With God

"In a recent survey of Americans almost 9 out of ten reported daily anxiety about inflation and another 60% reported daily anxiety over everything from health to relationships, to global events, to uncertainty, I think our recent history as a culture is full of trials that tempt us toward fear, whether it presents itself for you as like a low rumble of worried that's always operating in the background of your mind or crippling anxiety that controls every decision. And when it comes to fear, the Bible has good news and bad news for us. So first up, the bad news, fear is as present a reality today as it was when the Bible was written. Because there's no promises in scripture that our circumstances will improve in a way that gives us reason not to fear. Many people out there will have you believe that God wants to bless you and when you are blessed, it's going to come in the form of material possessions or promotions or basically the American Dream tied up with a bow and called Christian, but that's not actually what we see in scripture because in scripture people suffer mightily. Righteous people suffer because of the ways of the wicked, people who make mistakes suffer because of their mistakes. That's you and me, of course. And even Jesus suffers, even though he was perfect and sinless. So we know that part of our circumstances in life are going to be trials. We are going to have trials and that is not going to be removed just because we're following Jesus. So we know that fear we have a reason to fear things. We have a reason to fear pain. We have a reason to fear, struggle. We have a reason to fear strife because there's things create difficulties in our life and it can be easy to fall into that trap of fearing these things happening and feeling abandoned by God if there's things do happen, but that's not actually what the Bible says, what the Bible says, the actual good news is that what God promises us is not necessarily deliverance from our circumstances, although sometimes that happens. But he does promise us deliverance from a fearful heart. We don't have to be the same people going through those circumstances.

A Prayer for When You Don't Feel Good Enough

"Growing up in a broken family, chaos followed us wherever we went. So to cope with the rejection of my father and the inconsistency of everyday life, I thought that if I could be perfect, if I could control every situation, then nothing bad would ever happen to us again. But the fallen world doesn't allow this. There is so much out of our control. This fact, along with the overwhelming standards of beauty, performance, and success produces a perfect storm of anxiety about not being good enough. I know so many people feel this way that stem a variety of reasons and causes. But as Christians, we know that this is a lie from the enemy. Although we may know this in our heads, it is hard to drown out the loud voices in deep seated feelings to the contrary. This is where the truth of scripture comes into play. This is where God's own words penetrate the darkness to tell us how loved we are. How beautiful we are. How we are so important to the lord almighty, that he meticulously formed us and bore the scorn of the cross for us. Let's pray. Dear lord, thank you for your love and pursuit of who we are. Thank you for loving us so much that you created us and saved us so that we could be with you for eternity. Thank you for finding us when the darkness overtakes us. I praise you for loving me just the way I am. Without altering myself to be perfect. I pray that when the world is shouting at us to be thinner, to fit their standards of attractiveness, and to reach their levels of success that we dive into your presence in your word. So that the only thing we see and hear is your truth. You tell us that you have searched me, lord, and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise, you perceive my thoughts. You discern my going out in my lying down. You are familiar with all my ways. Some one 39, one through three. How loved we are by you. Please let us not forget this. The enormity of possessing your love in the knowledge of our worth through your eyes. We love and trust you with all of our hearts, our creator and savior. In Jesus precious name, amen.

Sound baths are becoming a popular way for Californians to empty their minds and relax. It's a Hindu concept. Chiropractor Ken best says the stress of everyday life is causing anxiety and brain fog. And we find that the sound bass really helped them focus, gain back that collective thought that they're trying to get to and also relieve their anxiety at the same time. Screenwriter Barbara fix is feeling the effects. The sound energy that happens through you makes me feel very grounded and centered and kind of like anything that will come at me in life.

How Do We Beat the Demons Haunting America? James Lindsay Explains

"Let's talk practically with the time we have remaining. How do we defeat this? There are people in our audience right now. They're going to colleges and they have to be told men and women are basically the same. I went to University of Texas Austin, and I could play some of the clip, but we're not going to where people were telling me that men can become pregnant. People are paying for this. They're going into debt for this. They go to a church. They send their kid to a local school, it's happening in their school board. They're giving their kids TikTok, which by the way, if you love your child, you should make sure they never access TikTok. There is no argument to have that poison. And if your child has TikTok, there'll be more likely to commit suicide, have depression, anxiety, beyond psych psychiatric medication or become trans, correct? Yeah, that's correct. That's absolutely correct. And that is all part and parcel. All is trans stuff just to before we get to the practical, really. I know we were short on time, but I want to be very clear. When I said hermetic earlier, the goal in the hermetic face is a old ancient esoteric occult, whatever you want to call it religion, is in fact to remember first that you are the third person of the godhead. You are God, and that you are to ascend to the realm of the self, begotten. What do you do when you transition? You envision yourself as you think you were supposed to have been made until a doctor assigned your sex at birth, and then what do you do? You get yourself until the spiritual transformation happens. How does that happen by social construction? Everybody accepts it. Everybody's forced to call you whatever pronouns you make up. Everybody's forced to call you what your new name. There are forced to reify your new identity yourself forgotten at any side. When I say this is a cult, I am not kidding. I'm not exaggerating. I'm not just being cheeky, I can go deep on this. How do we beat them, James? How do we beat them? We have to beat them by telling the truth about them. It starts there.

Helping Kids Navigate Worry in Healthy Ways

"I think often we look at worry as if it's this big, scary thing. Even as parrots, we don't want to see it in our kids. Like we want them to walk in, be confident, you know, you know who you are. We're trying to establish who they are in God. And identity in them, but worry is just a normal part of life. Like we have to understand as parents, if we have a fear anxiety or a worry script going on in our own heads, when we see it in our kids, we feel it magnified. It feels worse to us for a child. They could just be experiencing a normal fear, going to a new school, that's a normal worry, like, and also it's building in us things like you've just said, you learned how to adapt in social situations. It's not that we want to prevent our kids from entering these worrisome environments. It's that we want to equip them and also give them the language that they know how to handle it. And so for Landon, when he started going to the school, we noticed it was coming out behaviorally. And so you will see, sometimes when we talk about and what do I do with worry, what ifs, right? The question always starts is what if and it's where our minds start spinning and we go down the end of the road of like, well, what if what if the teacher doesn't like me or what if I don't have friends or what if I walk in and I forget the kid's name? What if I don't have anyone to sit with at the lunch table? And if we don't pay attention as parents, you start to realize our kids and so often I think their worries are not what we assume them to be. They're actually very different than the things that we might assume they're worried about. And that's where Josh is saying, it's just being a student to be into lean in and to just ask the right questions to get beneath it, really. Because for Landon, we realized some of those insecurities for him were so, I mean, you almost want to laugh in some ways. And what some of the fears are. Well, and one of the things you're stressing I want to stress even further, being that student of your child, I think that's so critical. And in our adult busyness, you know, we can go right by that. And we just think it's behavioral. And then we respond to that. Go to your room for the next hour, some kind of disciplinary issue. And we're really missing the deeper cry of our child's heart. And that can set you up for disastrous relationship with your kids, because then they're not knowing if they can trust you. And even if they can't articulate it, you have to be the adult to say, okay, let's talk about this. What are you feeling, what's going on in your life right now. But it takes time to do that. You got to slow down and talk. And I think too, we can't be afraid of what we're going to find. I think so often parents ignore it because we're afraid of what's going on underneath.

The Doctor Who was obedient to irrational authority and supported lockdowns and supported vaccines for children is going to say what? Come on, kid. Don't worry about it. Every generation has it scare. You think he'll say that? No, we'll probably prescribe some antidepressant or anti anxiety medication. Yeah, kid, I get it. I'm worried too.

But isn't that what we are doing now? There is so much frustration. So much anxiety with the Republican Party among our listing audience. And I'm wondering, even if we were to lose as a third party or maybe maybe there's a fourth party. Maybe all of you Democrats out there, you don't like the direction your party's going in, which is the progressive, you're going beyond the progressive part straight to communism. And I've got to believe that there are some Democrats out there who still love America. They still love capitalism. Their beliefs are wackadoodle, but at least they love America. There's got to be some of you out there, and you see the direction your party is going. So maybe there's room for multiple parties in America. Why is it? Why is it the Republicans in the Democrats should get the monopoly on the political parties? Have you really thought about this?

"Me to eat. And I thought that that was helpful, but it didn't actually help me at all. So I stopped doing that and he went on to lose over a hundred pounds. He's described as effortlessly, because he just became less excited to do that. The reason I mentioned that is that anxiety can drive a whole lot of other things that then feed back because he was worried about his health and he could actually start to get a handle on his health, which then decreased his health anxiety, which then decreased his general anxiety. So as the end state here for people who live with anxiety to it's not that you're never gonna feel the throbbing in your chest or whatever physical manifestations there are of fear. It's that you're gonna learn not to let it drive you into unconstructive behaviors. Yes, absolutely. And I think there's a way that we can actually tap into our brains to do that. And that's what I wrote a lot of the book about. But that's the endgame is to I think of it as it's not about not having thoughts or emotions or sensations. It's about changing our relationship to them. And often in the process, if we change our relationship to our emotions, we can see where we're feeding them. We can stop feeding them. And at the same time, when they do show up, we don't resist them, because that resistance is part of the feeding. What we resist persists. And that's absolutely true. So those are two elements that work complementary. So I can sit here having this conversation with you and I may notice yes, there's a residual tightness in my chest because the last thing I did before I came into this interview was spend a bunch of time working on my book. Or I may even just notice the tightness in my chest while I'm working on my book. But I can be cool with that aware of it, not making a big deal out of it and checking whether it's driving me into sort of obsessive thought. But that doesn't mean I have to let it push me into thinking about why am I so anxious I'm never going to get better, et cetera, et cetera. Absolutely. And just to give you an in the moment example of that, that last sentence that I just said, those two can work complimentary. My brain started saying, well, that's not grammatically correct. So in this moment, I could be here sitting thinking, oh man, I'm totally bombing it on this great podcast, or I could be like, oh yeah, that was not grammatically correct. Let it go. And then we move on with a more interesting conversation. So absolutely. I didn't notice it just for the record. You mentioned that in the book, you talk a lot about Tapping into the brain's natural resources in order to help us with this. And I want to get to that. But just let me ask another sort of 30,000 feet question. How do we know whether we qualify as having some sort of clinical level of anxiety or whether we have garden variety anxiety? How do you tranche these things you as a professional? There's one of the tools that use most commonly clinically and we use this in our research studies as well is called the gad 7 generalized anxiety disorder 7, which is surprise 7 questions. And it can give a marker of severity, but it can also help diagnose. It's not perfect for diagnosis, but we can use it to clinically track people's level of anxiety. And there's below 5 is minimal anxiety, 5 to ten is mild, ten to 15 is moderate and above 15 is boy you're really anxious. I think officially it's severe. So we can use questionnaires and that tends to be the gold standard right now in psychiatry and psychological research around anxiety because we don't have physical markers of anxiety. Certainly there can be surrogates, but they're not specific enough for anyone individual. I hope everybody here listening if they feel like they need one, they should get a therapist, a psychiatrist psychologist, social worker, whatever you think is right for you. But if I'm listening to this and I'm not working with mental health professional, how do I gauge whether my anxiety is just a natural response to the fact that we're living in a pandemic and any of the other sort of disturbing current events or whether it's disrupting my ability to function. Fully. Yeah, so here it's pretty subjective. And a lot of the psychiatric, the DSM for the psychiatrist Bible. There's often this caveat at the end of you go through these checklists of symptoms. And then it says in must be causing some disturbance in life basically. We can have a bunch of these symptoms. And it might not be causing us any problem at all. And so I think that's a critical aspect is to ask ourselves, oh, I met this checklist, blah blah blah. But how am I actually dealing with this? Is this causing a disturbance? And I think this really highlights the importance of looking at the relationship with our thoughts and emotions rather than just looking at them objectively and saying, oh yeah, that's a problem. So for example, I know you've played a lot with not eating sugar, this or that. It's not that sugar is a problem, but it's how we relate to sugar. And that's very individual, right? So it's like, well, sugar is a basic building block. It gives good calories. And in certain ways, when it's delivered through non processed foods, can be very nutritive in that sense. So it's really looking at these things in how we relate to them..

"A big hit culturally. I mean there's such a hunger for just being released from the responsibility of governing our own lives and last year the level of anxiety and also profound loneliness was a real peak. People were understandably scared and deeply alone and if the counterpoint to grotesque abuses of power is to build systems where communities come together and say. What should we do. Not you know what hero can lead me. Then you had a moment where that kind of small d- democratic communal activity was frankly really hard. It was hard to have. You know whether. It's tuesday nights or once a month or even the politics that you do when you run into a neighbor at a grocery store and and work things out and say. Hey maybe i'll call my assembly member. All of those little moments of interaction were were gone. And so you have a atomization and isolation and loneliness and at that moment i think there's a deep vulnerability in all of us to say. Hey somebody just do all the work. Because i can't see the we at this moment. I can't feel the we that can govern ourselves. I wonder what you think all of this means for women who run for office if it means anything this this idea of a certain kind of masculinity and macho nece and bullying. Do you think that women have to perform this same macho act to be viable leaders in the us. And do you see that happening. I think we're in a moment of real change on that. And i mean i know when i ran in two thousand fourteen. I had all these questions about you know here. I am a law professor with the funny name resources. And so you naturally questions of performance come to mind like what do i wear. And what archetype. How how how will. I make sense to people. Basically you know. And there is a deep traditional tendency. I think is really changing right now to say okay. The the model that makes sense is the as close as possible to the nineteen fifties nineteen sixties white male vision of what a politician looks like. And i think over the last ten years we've seen a real change in that and frankly that's a big deal for men as well. You see people with tattoos. No longer kendall and Mortgages and credit card debt and different hair and that to me is something to really be celebrated and i think that real flowering of maybe superficial like clothing and tattoos and hair but actually really means a lot for people being connected to politics because then it's not those heroes over there. It's hey i also have credit card debt and then tattoos and don't wear a button up suit every day to work when you mentioned the credit card debt. I assume you're referring to stacey abrams famously. In her twenty eighteen campaign for governor that hurt her debt. Personal debt became part of the campaign and she owned it. She said yeah being with debt when you want. We live in america. And i think about her as a counterpoint. To the cuomo example of effectiveness a so much of her brand is competence and effectiveness without the bullying. It's it's. He is the counterpoint in so many ways also you know how you you go where. You're aiming these sort of idea that if you have a pilot's looking at a tree she's going to crash into the tree looking at the at the open field should go to the open field. It is so clear. And we'll just use stacey abramson example. That what she is aiming is the public good and of a flourishing democracy and she keeps aiming that way whatever happens and it also is so much part of cuomo's own trajectory is that he has always been aiming towards himself aggrandizing himself towards becoming bigger and stronger and last summer. There was a a look in cuomo's is of finally being at the apex. Finally being where he wanted to be and it was about himself. It wasn't about the state. And i guess this is what i think. I want to underline. Is that this kind of you might talk about it as toxic masculinity or as this masquerade of bullying as competence. It's really banal. it's really it's not interesting. What is interesting is somebody who has the courage to to really care about the public being self centered and isn't interesting seeking power. Well people have been doing that for thousands of years bullying. Well ask a five year old. They know how to do it. What's what's hard is having power. And having the courage to share it not gathering to oneself out is a law professor at fordham university to challenge governor andrew cuomo and the twenty fourteen democratic primary and ran for congress in two thousand sixteen back in march. She wrote an early op. Ed making the case for cuomo's resignation going beyond the sexual harassment charges. It can find lincoln our show notes for this episode suffer. Thanks so much for coming on the show so much.

We often fill an aversion to ourselves. We kind of disconnect for muscles. We don't want to deal with it but it's here it's happening within us so we're trying to phnom out. We're trying to run away. We're trying to get distance but it's always there waiting for us and every symptom can just feel like a re triggering event but when we content ourselves with self compassion with kindness. And just ask what. Can i do to help myself. Support this symptom. I understand that it's likely to be a symptom. Anxiety and not what. My mind is spinning out trying to give me this these stories of fair. These are more than likely symptoms of anxiety. How can i turn to myself with kindness.

"Before we go to break. Let's talk about how anxiety affects our response to the symptoms that we've shared here today when anxieties elevated we tend to resist responding to symptoms. We really get freaked out. We just don't wanna know when able to respond. We react we become fearful and we fix. I almost case out outcomes. We always go to. What if what if it's this. What if something terrible is wrong with me. That's where the anxious mind always goes in response to symptoms. And that's just not fun. It's awful it is awful. And that's that's why there's such a strong desire to numb ourselves out or to hide or we in that place of much doing anything or being open to anything that will make it. Stop and i think was really important to share is that all of this is very normal so this is going to happen but you can get to the other side of you have an understanding that oh yeah. My mind is going to tell me to resist yup doing anything. My mind is going to tell me that. I need to just run to the hospital or curl up in a ball and freak out or whatever the thing when you know whatever you do yeah get out of my head. Nama whatever is under. This is a totally natural and usual reaction to anxiety and is a horrible low because it increases the symptoms themselves because we're increasing our own anxiety so we really need help stepping out that loop we do when we come back from the break.

How anxiety affects our response to different symptoms and the way that anxiety makes us get in that loop of just being stuck about doing anything just becoming fearful having the strong desire to phnom out or to hide all of the things that happen and we want you to know again. We'll stress again. That this is very normal but there are things that you can do to help and i want to start by sharing a little bit of an entree to what you're going to hear next week with an interview that i have with dr dane here from access consciousness. One of the very first things that he invites us to do when we have something. Come up in our bodies is to ask. Who does this belong to and that might sound so strange to you right now but what he shares an and what i've been studying now for about two years is that we often those of us who suffer with anxiety are often healers. We often had these really big hearts and these healing tendencies and we want to ill and and take care of or nurturers. Were all of these wonderful beautiful things to other people and often we can pick up on other people's symptoms and other people's anxiety and other people's stuff and we don't even know it and the number is somewhere between fifty and one hundred percent so think about how big that number is so here's an example to make a little bit more sense if you've ever been in a position where you're just coming home from work or coming home from school and before you even step in the door you know. Something's going on inside with your partner or your child or or whomever you might live with. If you if you do live with someone like you can just absolutely tell. Something's going on with their energy. Or maybe it's that thing where you're just thinking about somebody or worried about somebody and you feel like you absolutely need to call them. This is kind of what i'm talking about. And so if you ask yourself who does this belong to and you start to feel a little bit lighter a little bit more space. A little bit lighter it might not be yours and so he does this thing where he says. Okay maybe this isn't mine. Returned to sender with consciousness attached. Like i just like return this and anything that that causes this to come up in my body return it and sometimes that works within minutes and i know it sounds kind of strange but i've been at this a while you guys an does work and i know that i carry especially my loved ones. I carry their stuff sometimes. And we don't have to. And once you start to become aware of it is kind of like the conversations noggin. I've had for years the thoughts in your head and how the mind wants us to think that it's in control and so we ask. Who does that belong to very much like who saying that. Or where does that come from. Or where is that coming in my brain to make me think this thought whatever it might be this judgment this critical voice similar to that i would start there and then if that seems just a little too weird or a little too. Woo then let it go. It's it's not for you but it is something for you to consider. There are also a number of other choices that you can make to help you when these symptoms come up and the first one will not be a big shock to you even though i talked about drinking coke earlier. It's to replace caffeine with calming. Tea's like camel lemon balm passion flower. Those teas are so beneficial. And just yesterday i put some in the window. It was really a warm sunny day. In and i wanted to. Just make some some tea brewed by the sun and it was phenomenal. I do that often in the summertime in. You're doing such a service to your because you're giving it this wonderful hydration along with the healing and calming benefits of these. Beautiful.

"Then one of my very favorite symptoms restlessness. And i realized that that is just my mind having her way with me and Wanting me to do a million different things at one time but not really having the capacity to do any of them if that makes sense so. When i'm feeling restless that generally means that i need to move my body and just get up and move and as often as a noggin. I both are sitting at our desks in front of our computers. Doing our odd castro voice for whatever and as so many of you are on your devices and screens and sitting. There might be days that go by that. You don't move your body very much at all and you might start feeling restless and you might start feeling anxious about at restlessness. That comes up in you and just the act of moving makes a big difference. Sometimes anxiety has pushing restless and edgy to it in ir. Vader is called chancellor this moving restless energy and it can be very difficult to placate because we find it hard to sit still we. We find it hard to focus so gently. Moving is a good place to start and if we can move mindfully so that where. Harnessing the mind with the movement than that helps love that. Yes like a walking meditation. Yeah where we're paying attention to. Everything is were and i think about my village of walking through the village and i'm so blessed to be able to walk by this beautiful pasture where there's a couple of horses and there's a wonderful fountain and there's usually ducks in this pond. And there's a stream and there's trees you know just looking at letting all of that come in and fill up my senses will do wonders with calming that restless feeling and the more we do it the more it will settle. Sometimes i go out. If i'm feeling stood up and i'll really go to tree and studier fill the bark or the leaves. If there's some flowers around. I like to smell them. I take a lot photographs in nature because it helps me really be present and really notice elected take real close ups of details and flowers and colors. It helps me. Draw my mind really into your king and being where i am and that was something i started doing after a trauma by big shock my life a few years ago i found taking photos really helped me Studying appreciate where. I was by light together a tactile as well not. Just be behind a screen. It's so helpful. I as you know. I do the same and have a thousands and thousands of pictures of nature. And what a gorgeous way to care for yourself by being in it and noticing the details and noticing the miracle of all of it. It's just is beautiful trees and plants. And how how. They just naturally do their thing cycle through and show and they're just sitting there waiting for us to notice them right like. Hey you're we are late for us to go hang out with them when yeah very grounding to just sit with your back against a tree and takes deep breaths of chittagong meditation. Many other coaches recommend that we get our shoes off. Get our feet on the ground and it helps with dizziness restlessness. It helps with headaches. If i can get my feet in a stream on occasion. When i've had a headache it's really helped me and it helps with anxiety inco's all these symptoms were discussing here on anxiety symptoms so the more we can take care of ourselves and work to reduce the underlying anxiety. The less they symptoms are going to be present in ally. As we talked about each symptom we also brought in ir veda hair and there or a better understanding of how to support yourself in your constitution. And i thought it would be helpful to also share. How these symptoms. Show up in our doses. So for me being very pitta. I will have more issues with headache indigestion. Acidity or heartburn with vodka folks. They'll often have feelings of nausea stomach. Ache loading constipation. Ailing very much ungrounded in restless. Or maybe lightheaded and dizzy but seems to to receive more symptoms than it a in koffa. Please set something. That i've noticed. And also koffa is where it teague kicks in and overwhelm and just feeling lethargic. Almost i think about one kafka symptoms show up is like a sign of depression feeling depressed lost interest in activities and doing anything and just really wanting to be left alone. Cover does tend to manifest more of a low mood although she's can but coffer shows it quite rightly there with the lethargy in the loss of interest inverted does show more symptoms. And according to our veda voter is the the queen of the dough shas the mazda osha so but as always they're very active within us an always increasingly aggravated by stress or anxieties is the first doshi to respond to stress anxiety.

"And we often worry there something medically wrong with us. You are some of the symptoms. We've been asked about the most with some helpful suggestions. Actually before we dive into that and nanga. How are you patient and welcome back to another conversation. It's a delight to be with you again. Some of the symptoms that we hear about the most are dry mouth heart palpitations stomach upset and nausea headaches sweating dizziness and restlessness and i realized there are more but these are the ones that up the most and so we decided it would be a good idea to share with you some of the things that we know some of the holistic ways that we've been able to help ourselves and so many others when they're feeling any number of these symptoms will also talk about ira veda and how the symptoms can show up in our doses. And most importantly what you can do about all of this. Let's begin by kind of ticking off each one of these one by one. I think that might be a good place to start. Dry mouth is fairly obvious. We we need to hydrate. We need to drink more clean. Filtered water spring water if you have it and hydrate much more. What we do know is that most people are walking around with Some dehydration and so when anxiety comes up and dry mouth is becomes a part of that symptom. It's often because you're already dehydrated and sometimes we need more than regular hydration when this dryness in the body so drinking her tea light liquorice. That has a special property. That really i try to a deep level also. There are pastors light. Rescue remedy pastels. Which are handy to carry with you. So that helps with having a dry mouth on also addresses innings of nervousness or anxiety. I really like those. That i think they taste really good. And if you don't know what a pastel is it's like a little candy that Bar remedy makes little tin that. You can easily carry anywhere with you. Have them in my purse and they really will stop dry mouth very quickly And then what we often hear about as well is heart palpitations or a racing heart. And this one is the one that sends so many to the er so many to our group wondering what's going on what's happening with my heart and my having a heart attack which is why we've covered that so many times. I think palpitations and concerns over bloodpressure. A probably the two communist at the moment in our private facebook group One of the things that i find most helpful if my heart starts racing is to go back to the calming point and we covered this last week in the episode about anxiety triggers. This is just where you take your right thumb rested in the palm of your left hand nice infirm and take five or six rounds of deep breathing in five or six rounds of your breath and you'll start to feel your racing heart com itself. Along exhale is a wonderful breathing exercise. Any kind of reading exercise that you like is going to help you with this feeling with this racing heart and we've covered so many breathing techniques over the years that you can find any number of them and we'll make sure that we have a lincoln our show notes as well so you can choose the breathing exercise that it's you best but you might recall that the long exhale is breathing in or account of or olding for account of one or two and then exhaling your breath recount of seven. Don't worry too much if you don't get the exact times right. What to know is that you're out. Breath lasts twice as long as you're in breath and that will also start to settle your heart and start to make you feel a little bit more comfortable in your body. What about stomach upset in nausea also really common anxiety symptoms and very challenging. I used to suffer with this a lot. When i was younger when i had anxiety. I'd wake up nauseous every morning. Really horrible way to start your day. What really helps is splash. Code will turn your face. Take some deep breaths sip. Some ginger tea if you can just take tiny sip sometimes. We'll get really scared that we're going to actually be sick but if you take tiny sips is it's not enough to trigger that failing or increase intensity of the nausea and there's An acupressure point. That really helps a missing the f. T. tuck in sequence news on the stomach meridian. So if you go grab our if d talking points charter anxieties. Lead dot com forward slash f. T. is the point under the eye. So on the soccer bone just under the i directly in line with your pupil if you will look into straight ahead you just tap on that point and take steady breaths and that helps come nausea. Ginger has been such good friend to me and my family for so many years. I i have fresh ginger in the refrigerator. Ginger in the freezer candy. Ginger in the cupboard ginger. Tea in the covered. And it's just been such an ally ru any upset any stomach upset any nausea it my daughter just a couple of days ago said how. I'm so glad that this ginger worked so quickly feel so much better. It really does an an all these natural remedies do because they're going in the right direction you feel like it's the right thing to do so they do work. They work well and they work quickly.

One of the most commented on episodes that we've shared is what to do when we get triggered by noise and and how anxiety is affected by noise. We've had so much response to that episode.

That's how i know if my anxieties up. Or if i'm overtired i get jumpy and you know. That's one of the things that dr dean brought forward as the extra jumpiness is a clue that we're low in magnesium That at this point in her life and and getting her magnesium levels where they need to be that she can be in a room with somebody who let's say they break a vase of flowers or something comes crashing down and she won't even jump It'll just be like oh at base of flowers broke as i better clean it up instead of what was that ducking for cover or or what have you and you know.

A little bit more in our action oriented living But having the spacious nece around that having the place around those tasks and responsibilities that we have as adults in the world changes everything and i.

If you allow too much calcium in your body that gets into your nerve south they fire spasmodically and to the point of cell death. So that's the the nervous twitches in people's eyes or you seal in various parts of your body and that's what causes spasms muscle spasms are too much calcium and not enough magnesium so magnesium actually dissolves healthy in soft tissues where calcium should not be an magnesium actually direct calcium into the bones and teeth.

"Welcome back to the anxiety slater podcast. I'm shannon vanderli today. I'll be discussing. How to identify and address the symptoms of magnesium deficient anxiety with my special guest. Dr caroline dean. Dr dean is a medical doctor. Anna natural path. She's the author of over thirty five books including the bestseller the magnesium miracle and magnesium deficient anxiety in two thousand eleven. She launched a reset and brought her fifty years of experience into her proprietary unique formulations that give every individual at any stage of wellness or illness. The necessary building blocks for sustained health by talapity and wellbeing. Welcome back to anxiety. Slayer doctor dean. Now you stole much and please call me caroline. I will caroline. Thank you and thanks for coming back to share your expertise. It's been five years. Since we last had a conversation about magnesium and how magnesium deficiency can wreak havoc on our bodies and our mental health. And i wanna dig in deeper. Because i know you've done so much since then and thought we could just start. Perhaps talking about the symptoms of magnesium deficient anxiety. Yes i thought what i do is tell you about magnesium deficiency survey that i initiated since we last spoke two thousand seventeen well in september two thousand nineteen. I put the survey on our website very basic survey. So it's been up there now for almost almost two years. What we wanted to know is what percentage of people just driving buyer website were experiencing insomnia anxiety muscle cramps restless legs heart palpitation and tension headaches and migraines and what we found was just shocking. Seventy percent of people said they experienced anxiety. Seventy percent of people. Just you know. Oh let's do to do to do. Let's see what this website and seventy percent as well insomnia sixty percent muscle cramps. Fifty five percent restless legs fifty percent heart palpitations and forty percent migraines and tension headaches. So you know what this told me. Shannon is that when people come to you or me with they have a lot more going on. There are also not sleeping. They may have their muscle cramps and restless legs and heart palpitations with which freaks them out even more and headaches. And that's only a drop in the bucket. I i the listed sixty five different symptoms and conditions that are related to magnesium deficiency and. Most of them are treated with drugs and that adds to the symptom. Typology in the side of the side effects of drugs are create other problems. So that's what i have to share with you. Seventy percent of just the general public experiences anxieties your in such a very important position to help people because there's a lot of a lot of people out there suffering there sure are and that's one of the reasons why i invited you to come back and talk with us because i know that while that number is super high. I know that your expertise and what you share can help that number. Come down if people understand that there are probably most likely magnesium deficient and they can start getting magnesium into their system. It's gonna make a big difference. I know it has in my life. A one of the things that we hear most often from the anxiety sufferers who listen in and who are part of our private groups and such tell us they're reluctant to take magnesium because they're already prone to digestive upsets and and now. I've talked to you about this before. So i know that there's there's certainly a choice around that. But let's talk about the best formulation for these folks who are feeling like oh. I don't know. I don't want to add anything more. That's gonna send me right to the bathroom. Exactly yes what. Chance talking about is the most magnesium have the laxative effect. And in fact. That's that's what they do. They help you go to the bathroom. But you don't wanna go in in the form of diarrhea that some people experience. I'm one of those people so what happened with me. Shan is them in the late. Nineteen ninety s when random. House me to write a book on magnesium. I was living in manhattan. I was doing some. Tv work there. It just came up to someone approached Writing this book on magnesium. And i thought how can you break three hundred pages on one condition turned out. I was the poster child for nineties eum deficiency headaches heart palpitations severe late cramps insomnia muscle aches and pains everywhere. And when i realized that doing the research for the book i started taking more magnesium and got an immediate laxative effect. When i wrote the book. I became known as an expert. Magnesium i approach spoke every mineral dietary mineral company. I knew bode and ask them their research. Make a non laxed of magnesium. In how hard can it be but no no. No one was interested self. Finally i mean it was in the two thousand ten two thousand twelve. I finally found a chemist who would create a magnesium that was a stabilized. I on of the element of magnesium. So it wasn't bound with something else to make magnesium compound it was on its own i call it a pico meter sized i on of magnesium his. That's the size. That's required by the cells in the human body. The sides of the mineral i on channel that allows minerals into the into the south. It was an incredible Finding it it's called remake m. a. g. and it's the only nag museum that that is not laxative. I i made such a breakthrough. Oh yeah able to help.

"We've been wiping out the fear and discomfort of anxiety for almost twelve years and today we're speaking about whether or not anxiety is contagious. Welcome to another episode. Nanga a schenn always good to share time with you and cover topics of interest to our listeners. And this is one that we actually haven't covered before. Yeah we've been asked before whether ancelotti can be passed down in families whether it can be hereditary but this is a new topic can anxiety be contagious and the answer is absolutely those of us who live with things. -iety tend to be quite sensitive for sensitive souls were empathetic and we're very much open to the experience and emotions of others and when we're in balance were excellent listeners caring friends and we know how to practice self care and not take on more than we can handle but there is a challenge. Isn't there yet. The challenge for sensitive people is that we can become easily overwhelmed by our environment or by the moods and emotions of those around us and the media Those who are empathetic so cop atmospheres or moods and the experiences of others like a sponge and when we feel overwhelmed our resilience is reduced and outside anxiety starts affecting us is starts leaching in more and more so in that sense anxieties very contagious and sometimes when we soak up anxiety from others. It's not that were helpless. It's that we need to notice and take action to regain our boundaries or are buffer in that case. If you've ever been in a situation where you've walked in the room and the energy you can just feel how heavy it is. You can feel the discomfort and you might not even know what it is at first but you can. You can feel it and chances are somebody. There is stressed out or angry or has something going on that has them anxious and it almost feels like they've sucked all the air out of the room. I'm not judging this person but it's an observation it happens. I've done it. I've been able to suck the energy out of the entire household and go. Wow that wasn't really very fair to my husband and my daughter because i was sideways about whatever. I was sideways. About the reason why i bring that forward is by increasing our self care and building our resilience. We can still show up in those rooms that feel a little heavy still show up as a good listener and check in with what might be going on support those we care about and not be taken out by it and not get completely overwhelmed. And anxious ourselves zambia. Sense very much so yeah. It's all about self care and resilience and how much of a buff the we have when we really anxious and we get to that point of overwhelm. I was thinking it feels like you're a bit of a roll enough and the buff is gone the installations gone. The resilience is gone down so things impact us a lot easier on a lot more quickly but when we're actively in self aberdeen things still after ourselves. El paso's phil branded el paso's fill supported and we've just got back that bit of resilience that bit of buffer between awesome. What's coming externally sowerby proof. We don't take them so much. And these are simple practices like making sure you're hydrated making sure that you're being mindful of your nutrition allowing yourself to step away from drama that doesn't serve you allowing yourself the spaciousness and the break from screen time in the media and everything that comes at you and then also to be honest with those that you love if somebody is in a space where they're feeling really jangir's spun out and you're not available for that that's okay you get to voice that care for yourself and then come back around and check in on them. You do not always have to be available to take on everybody else's stuff. That was a lesson that i learned far too late in life and it was one of those things where. Oh yeah it's really okay. If i'm not in a place right now where i can go there and to speak it and to share it and an healthy relationship. The other person understands that. I remember my spiritual mental years ago. Told me everyone has the threshold. I was struggling with something at the time. I was quite young. May be nineteen twenty years old and The opportunity to go and sit with him and ask him questions on. And i said i'm struggling but i also shed. I felt bad about it. Because i could see that he and others were taking on so much more. And i felt that my capacity was was reduced. And i saw that as a floor and myself and he very kindly just looked at me and said everyone has their threshold and from there. I took it that we need to know. Also arum threshold and look. What do we need to be functioning peacefully functioning. Well do what we need to do with our lives. Are we somebody that needs space. Unpaced is need a lot of alone time. I also need to live harmoniously in companionably with others than i love company in good conversations for me to be functioning. Well i need to start my morning with a couple of hours at star threes. Even better. I need a couple of hours with my nose in book some meditation a cup of tea a an is important to know what is threshold. And what do we as individuals need because when we step away from that or we get overwhelmed and kind of blown away from that we can really suffer and lucite of ourselves and loose. I of our needs are really does help to know. What is the threshold. And we can make other people suffer. We're that depleted. Because then if we talk about dosages. And i have a pit osha. If i am not taking care of myself forgiving myself what i need i can get very sharp and very critical..

Welcome to anxiety slayer jill i shan. Thank you so much for having me so happy to be here. It's a pleasure. And congratulations on the success of your latest book. Be mighty what a fabulous book. And i know that you reached out to us quite some time ago to to get on and i'm and i'm glad you're here. It took us a little while but were here in. Your book is still out there and doing so well. So many great reviews. Yes and actually. It's great timing because the book just past her first birthday. Yeah be a celebration of about a year ago. I had the pleasure of speaking with dr steven hayes and he told me that that time that he pioneered act to help people with mental health issues feel fully think freely and live lives that reflect the qualities they choose and i'd like to begin our conversation with you sharing with us. How act can support women who often struggle with anxiety. Health things -iety in anxiety attacks. Yeah well act is a little different from some of the traditional ways. We go about attacking anxiety in that. The main goal of act is about developing psychological flexibility. And so this is really tuning in to the life you want and the person you want to be and showing up in doing what matters no matter what so. We often get caught in a trap where we do this waiting until thing you know like oh you know maybe i have a huge dream so i'll give you a personal example. I had a really big dream of doing a fedex. Talk one day and an opportunity arose to be able to do that. And i was terrified. I mean can feel my anxiety rising right now just talking about what we often do is say well i just i just need a little more expertise and i just need a little more practice and once i get my anxiety under control and i feel more confident and less insecure. Then i'll go ahead and do this. And what act is all about is becoming an observer of all those thoughts and feelings that we often get really hooked by and sort of we allow those thoughts and feelings to dictate our choices rather than letting what's important to us lead the way. The thing about doing what matters is it's going to come with anxiety because if it didn't matter you wouldn't care. Oh so well said. I used to do a lot of speaking an moved away from it moved into other areas of interest. But oh my goodness the number i would do on myself before speaking and i was very good very well prepared new speaking about once you got me on stage there is no turning me off. You couldn't shut me up right. But what i put myself through before it was something else and over time over practice and everything that lightened up but there was still that <hes>. My my speaking coach would say try and take that anxiety and turn it into excitement and some days. I could do that and other days. It was just a matter of forcing myself really to just do it right. And and i think you know the all gets a little bit confusing for human beings because sometimes when we feel panicky when we feel fear it's because we're endanger our body is saying you need to fight or flee if you're going to be safe but sometimes were having those feelings and it's you know it's a false alarm. It's a perception of danger when it's not really dangerous or what it is it's a quote unquote social danger that you know when you're public speaking you care that people think your competence and interesting that you have something of value to deliver and you think evolutionary early early humans weedon have fangs or clause or we didn't run fast. We had each other where social beings early humans who hunted and gathered and travelled together had a survival advantage so to constantly be checking your status in the group to make sure you know. Am i doing my part. Am i valued or am. I gonna get kicked out because if i get kicked out i'm dead and so we've really evolved to be creatures who compare ourselves to others and of course. Social media has made that far greater than it was ever intended to be.
