Join Nell Daly, a highly credentialed psychotherapist, nationally recognized television commentator and journalist, as she opens up and shares her personal journey from being a conventionally trained, pro-pharma psychotherapist, with a private practice in New York City, to one of the leading advocates for holistic psychiatry in the country.
After realizing that it's now estimated that over 80 million Americans are on psychiatric medications – including one out of every four women during her child bearing years and millions of elementary school aged children -- Daly relentlessly begins to explore the many alternative ways to heal our minds, bodies and souls, which includes venturing into the metaphysical world (a place this "accidental spiritualist" never thought she would find herself).
Through in-depth interviews (that span from deeply moving to funny to occasionally explicit) with some of the world’s most respected thought leaders—from scientists and thinkers, to doctors, shamans, award winning investigative reporters and spiritual healers – and plenty of others in between— Nell takes a candid look at her profession and then becomes a human guinea pig, all in the hopes of helping people get Unscripted.
Learning everything she can about where science, medicine and spirituality meet, Daly discusses stages of enlightenment, higher consciousness living, new relationship paradigms (think open marriages and the rise of the divine feminine) sexuality, nutrition, the value of facing our sorrows, micro-dosing, ayahuasca, eco-therapy, drive theory, meditation, the connection between creativity and mental health, psycho-spirituality and the value of honing intuition (occasionally talking about all of it in a single episode).
A Point Zero production, this podcast is for anyone who has ever struggled with sorrow, love, addiction, loss, grief, and loneliness. Anyone who’s ever been on medication and wanted to get off of it. Anyone who’s ever been curious about spirituality or the burgeoning field of soul-psychology. Anyone who has ever wondered if the universe really does have their back. And anyone who wants to harness their innate power not only to cope, but to thrive.
