Podcast 54: Can Marijuana Help Anxiety

Click to play

Podcast (Audio Only)

3 Ways to Calm Anxiety

Joanne Williams, as a 30 years Mental Health Professional after Looking into studies, if components of Marijuana could help with Anxiety. She Does not support marijuana use or use of substances in general, since they are covering up symptoms, instead of resolving them.

I recommend finding ways to resolve your anxiety and get skills or strategies to reduce it without substances for a lifetime of better coping.

As a 30-year veteran therapist. I do get asked all the time, my views or opinions on this question.

I have taken seminars on this subject and the data came back that there is no clear evidence that Marijuana helps anxiety itself.

I think what is clear that is can make anxiety worse, since it is a hallucinogen, and can make you have see things, that are not “normal” or go on “trip” that can be very scary or create paranoia.

The other issues, I see is that brain development continues until age 25 in young adults, and any substance that affects the brain, can be detrimental.

This article goes into more details: Does marijuana help calm anxiety? Weighing the benefits and risks — and whether it’s right for you? By Madeline Kennedy- There is evidence that the CBD compound in marijuana may help treat some anxiety disorders, though research is limited.

Though many people report smoking weed to treat their anxiety, the drug could actually make anxiety symptoms worse for some people.

Research is scarce about how marijuana can affect anxiety symptoms like irritability, muscle tension, and excessive worrying. For some people, marijuana may even increase anxiety.

But a 2015 review of 40 preliminary studies on CBD found that this chemical may play a key role. The researchers said they found encouraging, preliminary results that concentrated doses of CBD oil, when taken regularly, could be an effective treatment for a host of anxiety disorders including:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

Even if the restrictions on marijuana were lifted, and researchers could use it in their studies, there’s another problem.

Both anxiety disorders and marijuana sensations are individualized. So, marijuana may help one person with their anxiety but not another.

Someone with generalized anxiety disorder symptoms like difficulty sleeping may have a better reaction to marijuana than someone with panic disorder who fears losing control.

Even worse, using marijuana could enhance symptoms of anxiety for some people, says James Giordano, PhD, a professor of neurology and biochemistry at Georgetown University Medical Center.

“Some are overly sensitive to the ‘activating’ effects of THC, and this can induce anxiety, rather than reduce or relieve it,” Giordano says.

Latest research: A 2020 study found that higher-potency cannabis may increase the risk of anxiety associated with marijuana use.

Podcast 49: Attitudes of Mindfullness

Creating your Authentic Self

Welcome to Anxiety simplified Podcast. I am Joanne Williams, and I am here to share powerful strategies I have used myself and with my clients as a 30 year MH professional to lower anxiety, simply, that you can use too as we Bring this right into your own home or car, we hope this makes your life just a little happier and less stressed. And We really want to thank our Loyal listeners that are making this possible.  So enjoy.

I’m offering a gift to celebrate out 1 year anniversary of during podcast every week I am offering a printable print of the 7 Attitudes of Mindfulness you can print off and have in front of you or on your desk to remind of some qualities, I think we all seek but few find in our Harried American lives and coming out of covid I see that we need more peace in our minds than ever to do a reset on what is important in your lives that can be practiced in the moment or as you go through your day.

These 7 attitudes can be life changing and in Podcast # 50, my celebration of one year of doing podcasts I will do an actual explanation behind it and the medical research of how it works and a demonstration of how to put this altogether in practice. 

 Today I will go over Kabat Zinn ‘s 7 attitudes to use them in a simple task.

The 7 Attitudes of Mindfulness according to Kabat-Zinn support overall wellness. These seven primary attitudes are the foundational fruits of mindfulness practice. By internalizing them, a variety of other attitudes can flow into our lives. Friendliness, gratitude, gentleness, curiosity, non-attachment, non-reactivity, happiness, and creativity as all possible outcomes with practice. Others can include attunement, persistence, confidence, and willingness. Being more in harmony with another human is an especially vital skill for helping your self to feeling less stress and more internal peace, no matter, if the kids are driving you crazy, internally you have a quiet place to be, as chaos is all around you. 

 Being non-judgmental of one's internal processes is at the heart of mindfulness practice. Non-judging refers to thinking, feeling, or responding without the influence of an internal sensor or critic. Non-judging is an attitude of "just noticing" thoughts, emotions, or whatever may surface as relevant. Non-judgment, however, does not endorse behaviors that put oneself or others in harm's way. For instance, consider a recovering addict who is experiencing an intense craving to use a substance following a stressful day. Non-judgment does not advocate that the person should just go out and use, which would certainly be harmful.

Rather, non-judgment encourages the person to just notice the craving, pay attention to it, SIT WITH IT and be with it in a spirit of non-judgment.

Mindfulness, especially if practiced regularly, helps us to become more patient with ourselves. Patience teaches how to wait with grace. By cultivating this attitude, one can not only learn to defer instant gratification, but also to be gentler with oneself when shame-based responses attempt to sabotage. 

Thus, mindfulness practice is a way to RETAIN maladaptive cognitive and emotional responses like anxiety or depression while being gentle with oneself.

The mindfulness attitude that can significantly impact this retraining of the brain is "beginner's mind."

Beginner's mind is approaching each new task with an open mind. Think of the sense of wonder that a child attempting a task for the first time may experience. With this attitude, one can remove an expert's mindset and refrain from living on metaphorical autopilot. 

Practicing any activity with a beginner's mind is also a very effective way to practice non-striving: thinking, feeling, or acting with focus on the process, not just the outcome. The name of this skill confuses many people, because Western culture tends to associate non-striving with giving up. Non-striving does not imply laziness or sloth. 

Non-striving is an attitude that encourages one, even in work, to refrain from fighting so hard. In non-striving, whatever happens, happens. Consider the saying, "life is about the journey, not the destination," which epitomizes the spirit of non-striving.

The final three attitudes of mindfulness are also ideal for enjoying the journey without letting the stress of reaching the destination trouble us. 

First, there is the attitude of trust, or having belief in some unseen entity, such as another person or group or the internal self. One can also practice trust in an outcome that may not be obvious during the journey by believing it is there and it will be reached when it is supposed to be reached.

The next attitude is acceptance, or coming to terms with reality no matter how harsh or unpleasant it may be.

Practicing acceptance can be a pathway to peace, and it does not imply one must "like" the reality in order to discontinue fighting. Acceptance is internalizing the attitude of "it is what it is." Finally, there is the attitude of letting go, or releasing one's "grip" on a situation, emotion, person, thing, or outcome. Letting go generally results in a freeing response (or at least the beginnings of one). This response can clear the path for wellness and growth.

By practicing tuning in to your self first, we all can be more effective a friends or family members nonverbal signals and sense any subtle shifts in energy or relational dynamics. 

  • Can have Connections with others 
  • No Shame or fear which disconnection, or no feeling of I am not worthy. 
  • Being Connected is being vulnerability to another
  • There is a Sense of belonging and feeling worthy in that vulnerability that allows connection.  Because they believe they are worthy.
  • Have the Courage to tell you own story of imperfection. 
  • Being authentic, to feel your own personal worth when you connect with other whether in business or at home. 
  • Or Do something with no guarantee to feel authentic in the skin you are in to practice and see your reactions or defenses that pop up that are protecting you from your own inner feelings or fears.
  • I will leave you with a way to start this practice today on a walk today.

Think about how "being in the moment"  where there is no fear of sadness this can be practiced with each activity. practice mindfulness in activities of daily living?

MINDFUL WALKING

Instructions

  1. Think about looking toward the horizon during the walk instead of down at your feet.
  2. Consider the art of breaking this walk down into slow motion, as if you are experiencing it for the first time (i.e., beginner's mind).
  3. Standing tall, let your heel connect with the earth and allow the front part of your foot to point towards the sky.
  4. Very slowly step down, shifting the weight from your heel to the ball of the foot.
  5. Shift the weight from the ball to the toes.
  6. Deliberately repeat this same motion on the other foot.
  7. Continue taking this walk in this slow, deliberate fashion, observing each sensation with a new awareness. Let your walk truly be an exercise in mindful meditation.

This is by no means a replacement for therapy of any medical attention if you need it.  Always reach out and take care of yourself or if you are feeling like you want to hurt yourself, there is always someone standing by at 1800-273-8255 or call 911. Remember to Share the Love.

Podcast 46: 7 ways to Go from fight-or-flight into rest-and-digest within minutes told by scientists

Podcast (Audio Only)

Calm yourself within minutes with a Simple Breathing Technique that is the key to wellness

In this episode Joanne Williams, LCSW discusses the Vagus nerve and how to use to it to lower BP, heart rate, depression, anxiety, PTSD and other stress responses. And dozens of other medical issues.

Summary of Todays show: 7 ways to increase your Vagus nerve activity Go from fight-or-flight into rest-and-digest within minutes told by scientists

We will do an actual demonstration of how to activate this critical nerve to help you calm yourself automatically.

This is the most important Podcast I have ever done because I think it is THE answer to stress and anxiety.

I have been studying the Vagus nerve for almost a year.  Once I heard about its possible calming effects on anxiety, PTSD and depression, I was hooked to find out more.

I shared a clients almost magical results.   

“The mysterious nerve network that quiets pain and stress — and may defeat disease.” 

This is about activating a complicated system of a network of nerves that connects the brain to the heart, the gut, the immune system, and many of the organs. That system is known collectively as the vagus nerve.

These nerve networks act as lines of communication between the brain and the body’s many systems and organs. Some of the cranial nerves interpret sensory information collected by the skin, eyes, or tongue. Others control muscles or communicate with glands.

Experts have linked its activity to symptom changes in people with migraine headaches, inflammatory bowel disease, depression, epilepsy, arthritis. The more science learns about the nerve, the more it seems like a better understanding of the vagus nerve function could unlock new doors to treating all manner of human suffering.

These are some of the medical conditions relation to the Vagus nerve: from an article How to go from fight-or-flight into rest-and-digest within minutes, as told by scientists in another study by Alan Trapulionis

  • We know that the Vagus nerve cools down the inflammatory responses
  • We know that the vagus nerve helps strengthen our memory
  • We know that the vagus nerve controls our heart rate
  • We know that the vagus nerve releases the ‘chill out’ hormone
  • Vagus nerve can help with Vasovagal syncope
  • Better blood sugar regulation
  • Decreased risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease
  • Generally lower blood pressure
  • Better digestion due to proper production of digestive enzymes
  • Fewer migraines
  • Less depression
  • Less anxiety (they naturally deal with stress better)

Pick almost any common medical condition that’s made worse by stress or inflammation — everything from arthritis to inflammatory bowel disease — and there’s research showing that vagus nerve stimulation can help treat it or relieve its symptoms.

While some aspects of vagal activity, it’s clear that the nerve is the governor of the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps control the body’s relaxation responses.

In simple terms, heightened vagal activity counteracts the stress response.

Silberstein says that heightened vagal activity slows heart rate and also switches off inflammation, in part by triggering the release of immune system calming chemicals. Acetylcholine a calming hormone.

The Vagus nerve may actually be what they call “the missing link” to treating chronic inflammation that can cause a variety of other issues— like high blood pressure, migraines, digestive issues and any inflammatory related things like arthritis etc.—all without medication!

Apart from being able to relax faster after stress, people with a high vagal tone have overall better functioning internal systems including:

  1. Humming-
  2. Speaking, Singing and laughter.
  3. Wash your face with cold water
  4. Yoga
  5. Meditation
  6. Increase Good Gut Bacteria
  7. Breathing deeply using your diaphragm

For all its complexity, the vagus nerve seems to have a relatively simple role: to calm us down.

Otto Loewi, a Nobel prize winner, first discovered the “chill hormone” acetylcholine during a medical experiment.

In 2018, two researchers from the Netherlands have found that slow-breathing techniques with longer exhalations stimulate the vagus nerve. “Longer exhalations” means that your exhalations are longer than your inhalations ad this allow the chill hormone to be released.

In a set of inhales though the nose to the count of 4 and exhales out through the mouth to the count of 8 -4 times as one set.  One study I read said that doing this  1 set 3x per days or 25 sets in 8-9 days can actually get the Vagus nerve to continue to secrete the calming chemical automatically, but why would you stop a great habit and feel calmed on demand.

Practice this 4 and 8 breathing to help it calm you.

This is by no means a replacement for therapy of any medical attention if you need it.  Always reach out and take care of yourself or if you are feeling like you want to hurt yourself, there is always someone standing by at 1800-273-8255 or call 911.

Podcast 39: Why your 50s can be your Most Dangerous Decade

How your Children can be Part of the Problem

Podcast (Audio Only)

Why if you can live to 60 years old then statistically you can live to 80 years old.

Joanne Williams discusses

Summary of today: How having Emotional Intelligent or Emotional Quotient can help you live longer.

  1. What are the factors in living through your 50’s healthfully?
  2. EQ or EI what is Emotional Quotient or Emotional Intelligence
  3. My new theory on why living through your 50’s can be especially hard.
  4. 3 things you can do to live a happier life in your 50’s if you start now.

Question of the day is: How are the Habits you form today going to help you tomorrow and beyond.

I noticed something this week that I thought I would share today to help you survive through your 50’s.  I had read an insurance statistic that if you can live to 60 years old you have a much higher statistical possibility you will live to 80 years old.

I had 2 professional colleagues die this year. One a 51-year-old Counselor and a 59 yo mentor.

That made me really think about a syndrome that I have seen now in family friends that I am witnessing that many are dying in their 50’s. And I think it may be from disillusionment, that without meeting the many expectation of family life, career expectation they are giving up on life, because they have not reached the goals that they felt they should have met.

Not to mention a global pandemic adding another level of financial and health stressors or the possibility of losing their homes in their 50s could be financial devastating. According to this article by By LIZ WESTON of NerdWallet 

"If the economy tanks, 50 year olds are the first to go," according to les Weinstock. "Staying current in your field is really important."

And Weinstock recommends that you could ask younger co-workers to help you stay up-to-date with the latest technologies used by your office, for example.  To stay relevant.

"This is a great way for you to learn from someone else and to build more relationships," Weinstock says. Which is key for several reason.

And when it comes to relationships, more is better. Weinstock urges older workers to keep growing their networks, since most new jobs are found through someone you know.

Losing a job is almost always traumatic. In your 50s, job loss can be devastating -- and devastatingly common. He says to;

SAVE MORE, SAVE EARLIER, BORROW LESS

Many people find their ability to save is hampered by the amount of debt they have. Federal Reserve statistics show that households headed by people 45 to 54 years old owed more than twice as much in 2016 as similar households in 1989. There is a big stressor to avoid.

WEAN THE KIDS I will talk more about this in the 3 things you can do to stay happier.

Many parents provide their adult children with some financial support, and it's typically for household expenses rather than emergencies.

I see these as whether you are either accumulating healthy daily habits that will sustain you in hard times or will hold you back.

As I wondered about this new syndrome of dying in your 50’s, I looked at actually five close people, in my life who died, and all were in that 50 yo range.

The 2 close colleague and mentor who died this year were 51 and 59. One died unexpectedly of heart issues and one of breast cancer without telling a soul.

It really made me think that there really is something here, and I suspect disillusionment or depression as part of the emotional components of these deaths, that they may have giving up on being able to keep up with the expectations of life with more pressures.      or Their tendencies own tendency to put pressures on themselves.

Maybe they're overachievers and they're not achieving like they used to. And I think the scariest part of the most misleading part is they appeared very happy.

 I think a lot of times the jolliest of friends or family are the ones we should put more attention on. They seem the happiest, they are sometimes feeling sadness inside and are covering it up with their laughs. And they do fool us. So, we don’t see their sadness, we do not notice them.

I think part of this is denial. Maybe on our part too, but on their part of what's going on or avoidance might even be a better word for this.

I see that If we are not creating good daily habits to sustain our happiness, then it can go the other direction with stress or increased pressers as we age.

Or maybe it is low Emotional Quote EQ or emotional intelligence, EI which is defined as the capability to recognize your own emotions, and those of others and discern between different feelings, and abilities to use emotional information to guide your thinking and behaviors and adjust emotions to adapt to your environment. Daniel Goleman defined EI is typically associated with empathy, because it involves an individual's connecting their personal experiences with those of others.

So, EQ really is about adapting but it's an understanding and how to use emotions in this equation.   Which anyone can improve to feel happier or adapt better to transitions.

This is one of the components in my Thrive system as I work with clients to help them understand the interactions between our thoughts and emotions affecting our behaviors.

I currently putting together a supportive community to build more confidence in social situations, using my Thrive system as an example of how to use EQ. To feel more secure more confident about your abilities as you move into a transition into latter stages of life because I am seeing an increase in depression and without these skills on how to deal better with life pressures, I do believe that it can affect us physically if we don’t figure it out.

You can learn these skills to adapt and make those transitions in life and not to give up or get disillusioned that we aren’t able to keep up.

But if you are noticing somebody that maybe has lost their smile, share this with them, help them to notice, or strongly encourage somebody to reach out to get a different perspective or encourage counseling that is included in all health plans to increase their knowledge of their emotions, or to help them develop something that they truly enjoy in life.

So there are things you can offer a person that you love that is in their 50s and floundering maybe they've lost their job in COVID, or their business in the COVID maybe losing their house.

When things can start to pile on and you've if got teenagers in the home with expectations needing more money, thoughts about college, and the pressure start to mount.

Here are three things that anyone can use, but specifically people in their 50s, to find more purpose and meaning for this transitional time, but needing to make money, be productive, and do all the things that are needed if you do have children still in your home.

So, here's three things you can do today to move you into better Emotional Intelligence.

  1. lower your pressures and expectations on yourself. Sometimes that pressure is internal, it's not even expected of you. But you put it on yourself, maybe you were an overachiever, and just think you need to, or me maybe even take on responsibilities of others that are not even truly yours. That's a really important one to check out. That you're not taking on what I'm going to call other people's stuff, or responsibilities of others that is truly theirs. But if you are a fixer and trying to make sure everyone is happy and but, leaving yourself out. I call it stay in your own lane. What is yours to take care of. Sometimes we think we are responsible for how our children turn out. They have choices and consequences. And I feel that is our responsibility as a parent not to fix things, the messes that they create, but teach them responsible behavior, life skills, emotional intelligence, by your example. So maybe look at what you are taking on for other people's responsibilities but increase also your belief that you can figure this out work towards a five year goal instead of one month ago or one year ago, and Bill Gates said something that we seem to over expect what we can do in one year and underestimate what we could do in five years. So start to look at a five year plan maybe it is financial. What do you need to do get clear on what you want your and what you choose now for this next transition time, but it's called a clarity action plan to decrease your doubts and increase your happiness your enjoyment factor.

 If you're noticing more Disillusioned with life and if you can keep all of these balls in the air, or sadness and overwhelmed or feeling stuck To me, that's the beginning of depression, you're digging a hole and you can't get get out of it. And this is to me when the danger starts that needs to be looked at that people, maybe even subconsciously unaware of what some of their habits behaviors are creating in this depression or truly given up on life and not really recognizing it.

I had this colleague at age 51, that his heart gave out, Is that a metaphor. My mentor age 59 this year, My own brother was just 64, when he died.  But it seemed like the same thing. He just couldn't do the same things, getting up on a roof, fixing things, having the energy to be able to be productive, in competition with the younger guys, making enough money he needed. And it doesn't feel like there's a lot of a support around us to be even able to talk about this.

So even just being able to support somebody to understand not to fix it, but to listen.

  1. Get happy. Change your mindset to I can do this. I will do this. I don’t know How I will do this, but I will. What daily action can you take to be happier? What do you enjoy doing for yourself? That you can do right now? Do you like puzzles, playing cards, take a walk or ride draw. There's coloring books for adults painting, picking up something I can do right now reading, sitting, being quiet. Whatever it is listening to music can be wonderfully relaxing and creating a joyful feeling smile. Smiling is one of the I think most underrated things you can possibly do to feel happier.
  2. increase your EQ or emotional quotient or intelligence. Start by recognizing the four main emotions we all have happy, sad, mad or scared, get used to saying I'm really happy with this when I do this with you. Or when I'm doing this with you, I am really sad, when I see you doing this. Just say it and say, or when you are mad, scare

 Use this to recognizing your emotional state and saying it out loud. Reach out if you feel stuck, overwhelmed and don't allow doubt or expectation from others to get to stand up for yourself. Just keep moving forward step by step to feel happier and just move to be feel more satisfied. And c

This is by no means a replacement for therapy of any medical attention if your need it.  Always reach out and take care of yourself or if you are feeling like you want to hurt yourself, there is always someone standing by at 1800-273-8255 or call 911.

Whatever it is listening to music can be wonderfully relaxing and creating a joyful feeling smile. Smiling is one of the I think most underrated things you can possibly do to feel happier.
  2. Increase your EQ or emotional quotient or intelligence. Start by recognizing the four main emotions we all have happy, sad, mad or scared, get used to saying I'm really happy with this when I do this with you. Or when I'm doing this with you, I am really sad, when I see you doing this. Just say it and say, or when you are mad, scare

Use this to recognizing your emotional state and saying it out loud. Reach out if you feel stuck, overwhelmed and don't allow doubt or expectation from others to get to stand up for yourself. Just keep moving forward step by step to feel happier and just move to be feel more satisfied. And c

This is by no means a replacement for therapy of any medical attention if your need it.

Podcast 35: Alternative Health to Relieve Stress and Anxiety

How Emotional Health Can be Affected by Lack of Nutrients

Podcast (Audio Only)

In this episode: Joanne Williams, LCSW discusses with Eva Vennari, NC, Nutritional Counselor and Holistic Health Practitioner how our body is involved and affected by our emotional health.

Eva is a formerly sick corporate ladder climber turned holistic practitioner and she works virtually with high performers as their secret weapon to stay in the game without burnout. It's science-based, - no trends, no fads, and no drugs... ever.  Some of things that you thought you knew about health you will want to rethink.

Summary of today Podcast:

  1. What are some hidden physical aspects of the anxiety experience?
  2. Strategies to look at anxiety from a body level and how lack nutrients may be part of the cause?
  3. Why is it more important now than ever to pay attention to your body’s needs?
  4. How we must be taking nutrient supplements even if we eat right?

Question for today is? Is there a complete healing?

Eva Vennari got into the field of nutrition counseling because of her own burnout and health issues, that many listeners, may identify with that when doctors couldn’t find any immediate medical cause and called it psychosomatic and nothing they can do to help. So she started her own research to find the underlying causes of her own immune disorder.  It took her 30-60 days of a nutritional program to start her healing.  She has had phenomenal results with her own healing and now offers this to others.  

If you learn to listen to your body and learn how to give it what it needs you can increase the harmony between you mind and body with natural treatments. Emotional issues, that have bothered you for years, can be released though the physical healing process with the right nutrients.

She described the 4 stages of healing:

  1. The body will only deal with the immediate needs, it must Build up the energy needed first. Survivor first.
  2. Healing process starts with needing to break down what is needed to be healed.
  3. Clear the way of the toxins, parasites, viruses, in layers.
  4. Rebuilding, allowing the bodies natural process of healing to happen with time and patience.

She has scientific methods to analyze the mineral content in your hair with each stage of the healing process to reassess to clarify the needs.

She sees that the clash between the head and the heart is part of the incoherence that causes the dis-ease without recognizing that we are a whole unit that needs to work in conjunction with each part to create the synergy of healing and optimal health
