Fearvana, PTSD and running across continents.
Today I bring you, Akshay Nanavati. Akshay is a Marine Corps veteran, adventurer, and entrepreneur. After overcoming drug addiction, a diagnosis of PTSD after the war in Iraq, and a battle with alcohol that pushed him to the brink of suicide, Akshay has since explored the most hostile environments on the planet and built a global business helping people live limitless lifestyles. Combining years of research in neuroscience and psychology with his life experience, Akshay wrote his book “Fearvana: The Revolutionary Science of How to Turn Fear Into Health, Wealth, and Happiness.” His work funds his nonprofit, the Fearvana Foundation. It is the change-making arm of his lifelong mission to run across every country to create enduring peace, one community at a time.
