EP193: Freedom from Health Anxiety

In this episode, I talk about a one month workshop I recently led for people struggling with health anxiety.

What happened over the course of a month is pretty amazing. 

Three people who were struggling with worry and anxiety around their health began to see that their anxiety has nothing to do with any health event that is happening, or might someday happen. 

They began to see how all three of their minds did virtually the same things. They all scanned for symptoms, discounted clean bills of health given to them by doctors, engaged in rituals and superstitions they believed would keep them safe…

Seeing how alike they were to each other had an amazing effect of helping them see that none of this was about them or their health. It was all a mind doing what minds sometimes do.

Oh, and then one of them had a heart attack (her biggest health fear) and ended up in the hospital. You’ll want to hear what they learned from her.

If you’re struggling with health anxiety or you know someone who is, please check out this episode and the health anxiety course created from this workshop: https://www.dramyjohnson.com/freedomfromhealthanxiety 

There is so much in this conversation that will be incredibly helpful for anyone, whether you’ve ever experienced health anxiety or not.
