Feed Your Wild with Venessa Rodriguez

Oct 12, 2020

As our world has shifted, so many of folx have experienced a major impact on their emotional and mental well-being. This conversation with Dr. Jodie Skillicorn, a holistic psychiatrist who believes strongly in the body’s innate healing powers, is important for these times when depression and anxiety are on the rise. In this episode, we discuss psychiatric medication including antidepressants, the research history behind them, debunking myths and why it's important to understand the landscape and "insanity of conventional psychiatry."

Dr. Jodie talks about the power of placebo and the nocebo effect, how you can tap into your inner power of self-healing, and the importance of the nervous system when it comes to any type of mental health challenge. Dr. Jodie leaves us with an empowering message, illuminating the power of our mind, the plasticity of our brain, and the resilience of our Spirit.


Her book Healing Depression Without Medication debunks the mythology of the neurochemical imbalance and alleged effectiveness of antidepressants. Dr. Jodie Skillicorn offers another way of treating depression by getting to the root causes and  empowering readers to become agents of their own wholeness and healing.  If you are one of the 300 million adults around the world  suffering from depression and a lifetime of ineffective medications who long to flourish and thrive, this interview and book are for you.
