Co-hosts Traci Timmons and Dr. Ellen Ferranti started this show to bring our audience all the information we can about how to achieve optimal health in YOUR life. This starts with defining what that means and how to find the support you need on the best path for YOU to get where you would like to be, with a healthy BODY, MIND, SPIRIT and FINANCES.
We share part of two episodes, the premiere where we ask What is optimal health? What is a health coach? Do YOU need a health coach? How do you find one? What is a health assessment?
And then part of our discussion on Anxiety and Depression. In our effort to share as much information as we can to help those affected, we began to seek practical coping methods. Ellen’s daughter, Alexandra Ciobanu, is studying for a Masters in Mental Health Counseling. She shares informaton about DBT therapy, one of the new ways we are starting to treat anxiety and depression.
40 million adults in the US aged 18 or older (18.1% of the population) suffer from anxiety disorders. Most are easily treatable YET only 36.9% of these people receive treatment. Nearly half of those diagnosed with depression also have an anxiety disorder. We MUST end the stigma surrounding mental illness helping those who are suffering to open up and get the help they need.
