Welcome back to the show!
On this episode of The Erica Diamond Podcast, I get up close and person with Dr. Steven Radowitz, internal medicine physician and Chief Medical Officer of Nushama Psychedelic Wellness
We speak about the keys to longevity, psychedelics and understanding mental health.
It’s a fascinating hour-long conversation— our only issue was throughout our Instagram live, we kept having tech issues where our talking overlapped each other. I apologize in advance for this inconvenience.
In This Episode
What excited you about medicine going back, and deciding to specially go into internal medicine?
Let’s talk longevity. I know you are fascinated with how we age, but specifically how to age well. Let’s talk about that. We’ll get to the psychedelics after.
What are things that hinder our longevity?
What are things that help our longevity?
What are psychedelics? And how are they used to treat trauma and addiction. Specifically, how you DO use them to treat your patients? Take us down the journey.
So basically, you are Masha or Nicole Kidman in Nine Perfect Strangers?
How does one know when they would be a good candidate for psychedelics, and which ones? (Ketamine? Mushrooms?)
Let’s talk spirituality – how did you find spiritually, kaballah and course-correct your life?
We have to talk self-care, specially yoga and meditation. I love that you speak so open and freely about self-care as a way to ward off disease and re-align the body. Why is self-care so important?
Let’s talk tending to our mental health
What are some things we can do when we feel overwhelmed or anxious, or like we’re encroaching burnout, which is the reality for many around the globe?
About Dr. Steven Radowitz
Dr. Steven Radowitz is Chief Medical Officer of Nushama Psychedelic Wellness. Dr. Radowitz has a wealth of experience in treating patients with addictions and seeing firsthand the effects that trauma can have on our physical health.Dr. Radowitz joined Nushama to oversee and develop various treatment modalities because of his belief that psychedelic medicine is the future of mental wellness and that current solutions treat symptoms only and do not address the underlying issues.
Dr. Radowitz has been practicing internal medicine since 1998. He grew up in Montreal Canada (that’s how we know each other, I was close friends with his sister Jen). He completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Anatomy and Cell biology from McGill University. He then completed his medical degree at The Chicago Medical School and internal medicine residency at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. He worked at the St. Vincent’s Midtown medical center in New York City where he worked on the general medicine and HIV/ AIDS units and was medical director of the inpatient alcohol and opiate detox and treatment unit. He was also responsible for teaching medical students and interns.
He then went into private practice in Manhattan, specializing in general medicine and HIV care. He also provided acute care services at the health centers at Merrill Lynch and Goldman Sachs. He currently provides HIV care services for students at Columbia University where he is an assistant clinical professor. Dr. Radowitz currently runs the primary care program at Goldman Sachs and maintains his private practice in Manhattan.
He has been and continues on a spiritual journey through the study of Kabbalah, Jewish mysticism, studied transcendental meditation and various forms of yoga. Dr. Radowitz has a passion for preventive medicine, getting to the true source of disease before it manifests. He sees the source of disease as a dis-ease that results from a misalignment of mind, body and spirit. He sees psychedelic medicine as a powerful tool to help become aware of the origin of this imbalance and guide us on a path to wholeness, health and wellbeing.
