Bonus: The Importance of Sleep for Mental Health with Dr. Anna Carchi

Description

Dr. Anna Carchi is a Board-Certified Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and founder of The Healing Ring.

Dr. Anna received her master’s degree and certification as an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner and clinical nurse specialist from the University of California, Los Angeles. She received her clinical doctorate from California State University Los Angeles and continued her education to receive her certification in Integrative Medicine from George Washington University.

Dr. Anna has been practicing as a pulmonary-critical care specialist in both the hospital and clinic setting.

After years spent working in this high intensity area of medicine, Dr. Anna began having feelings of stress and anxiety. These symptoms moved over into her personal life and began affecting her health.

She noticed excessive worrying, difficulty sleeping, headaches, irritability, fatigue, brain fog, gastrointestinal symptoms, restlessness, fluctuations of overeating and not eating enough, followed by poor food choices and weight gain.

Most notably, she no longer found pleasure in life.

This is when Dr. Anna knew she needed to reduce stress and anxiety in her life. She found refuge in Integrative medicine.

Integrative medicine provides a multi-faceted approach to healing including Chinese medicine, acupuncture, Ayurvedic medicine, meditation, tai-chi, Qigong, cognitive behavioral therapy and includes natural products as well as prescription medications.

She began healing herself through meditating, yoga, cognitive behavioral therapies, and included natural supplements.

Through this journey to wellness, she realized how she could help others suffering with stress and anxiety. As a result, Dr. Anna is dedicated to helping others manage stress and the diseases caused by stress.
