Ep. 6 – How to Treat Anxiety, Insomnia, and Pain with THC – Medical Cannabis Deep Dive pt 3
Evan Talks episode 6 is “How to Treat Anxiety, Insomnia, and Pain with THC”
In episode 6 we conclude our Medical Cannabis Deep Dive with an in-depth look at THC and how to better understand THC from a medicinal use perspective.
For the first half of this episode, I dive deep into What Is Anxiety.
As a person who used to “suffer from” anxiety and who now simply “experiences anxiety energy” from time to time, I believe anxiety is sorely misunderstood in America and by western medicine.
As such, I spend quite a bit of time unpacking what anxiety actually is, how it manifests in at least six (6) unique forms, and how each type of anxiety needs to be understood and treated at its root cause in order to be an effective treatment.
Here, incidentally, are the 6 different types of anxiety:
- Anxiety related to stress on the job or a work-related task, career or achievement goals
- Anxiety related to FOMO (fear of missing out)
- Anxiety related to procrastination and/or prolonged depression
- Anxiety related to fear of failure and/or fear of success
- Anxiety related to communications issues with family, friends, loved ones, and/or coworkers
- Anxiety related to thoughts of death and/or loss of companionship
I explain in this episode how each type of anxiety can be assigned to one of the above 6 types, and how each type needs to be treated at its root cause.
Our culture, and western medicine in general, tends to look at a person and want to treat the symptom, rather than look for the underlying root cause of a condition.
Due to this philosophy of medicine in the west, anxiety is not properly understood as being many different things that layer-on to storylines and relationships.
Instead, anxiety is too often misunderstood and mistreated as one singular condition; generally by slapping a pill on it and calling it a day.
Of course, this isn’t effective treatment for anxiety, which is why so many people are still suffering needlessly.
How can you help?
Among other things like sharing the video, leaving thoughtful comments and telling your stories…
If you know a doctor who is treating anxiety, you can encourage them to watch this episode of Evan Talks to get a different perspective on anxiety and treating anxiety.
