Episode 296: Exploring the Link Between Stress and Chronic Illness with Cort Davies

Listen On

Earlier this year, I accidentally FaceTimed a man named Julio. Julio had just raised approximately $80,000 on a GoFundMe for today’s guest, Cort Davies. At the time, I was in the process of starting a nonprofit that was to be called Support the Unsupported, and Cort was founding his own, doing exactly what I wanted to do.

His nonprofit, Conscious Cancer, helps cancer patients get the knowledge, holistic resources, and money to help them navigate the stress of bills they can’t pay. He’s also creating a documentary, which led not just to him filming at my house but to us having a long conversation about transitioning from chemo to holistic medicine.

Today, Cort joins the podcast to discuss how his cancer journey has reshaped his life and his relationship with chronic stress. You’ll learn how it gave him the power to become heart-centered, to live with compassion and empathy, and to kick major ass – and how he’s working to help others do the same.


  • How Cort discovered that what he thought was chronic stress was actually a one in 2 million cancerous tumor that required seven surgeries to treat over a period of several years.
  • Why Cort’s cancer led him to start exploring the relationship between stress and cancer – and why coping with cancer is so much harder than dealing with the disease itself for so many patients.
  • Cort’s Freeze-Frame Technique for managing stress – and how it’s helped people reduce symptoms of seemingly unmanageable chronic illnesses.
