Dr. Ellen Vora is a board certified psychiatrist, acupuncturist, and yoga teacher, who takes a functional approach to mental health treatment. She believes in looking at her patients holistically, and addressing challenges at the source rather than with medication. Ellen specializes in depression, anxiety, insomnia, women’s mental health, adult ADHD, bipolar, autoimmunity, and digestive issues. After graduating from Yale University with an undergraduate degree in English, Dr. Vora continued on to Columbia University medical school, although she consistently felt reservations about the profession she was entering. On this not-so-caffeinated career conversation (Dr. Vora recently kicked her caffeine habit) she addresses our society’s struggles with mental health from a holistic psychiatry standpoint, and gives Java Junkies tools to reflect on their own physical and mental health, and what lifestyle changes you can make to feel like your best self. Tune in to this episode of T4C and find out how to better take care of yourself, and why your afternoon snack of Doritos might just be what’s making you depressed.
