Freedom From Anxiety
If you are currently living with anxiety and/or panic attacks the first thing you need to know is that it is 100% treatable. You do not have to just accept that you have anxiety and learn to live with. You also need to know that anxiety and panic attacks are not physical or mental illnesses.
If you are currently suffering from an anxiety condition you are not physically or mentally ill!
I’m sure you can remember a time before you had anxiety? Even if you have suffered from anxiety for a very long time you will still be able to remember a time before anxiety. You haven’t always been this way.
What has happened is that over a period of time you have learned to become anxious. By practising being an anxious person you have reset your normal baseline level of anxiety to a much higher level. This happens through something called operant conditioning and is controlled by an organ in our brain called the amygdala. It’s how we learn anything that requires practice, like playing an instrument for example.
You had an initial catalyst for your anxiety response whether that was stress at work, a bereavement or an illness. It doesn’t matter what caused the initial anxiety. What matters is you understand that from this point on you have practised being an anxious person by reacting to bodily sensations and thoughts with anxious behaviour and now your normal level of anxiety has been reset to a much higher level.
Now you may not understand that immediately because the traditional stance is that anxiety disorders are mental illnesses, but that simply isn’t true. Schizophrenia, clinical depression, psychosis these are mental illnesses. They occur due to chemical imbalances in the brain and therefore usually require drug therapy along with psychiatric interventions as part of a treatment package. By labelling anxiety disorders as mental illnesses all that happens is people do not want to seek help or talk to their friends and family about it because of the stigma attached to mental health issues.
CBT or Cognitive ‘Behavioural’ Therapy focuses on changing our existing problematic thoughts and behaviour to reduce anxiety levels, and is the most successful method in permanent recovery from anxiety disorders. This proves to you that what you have is a behavioural condition. The Panic Shutdown Method is based on CBT type therapies and is 100% successful in treating panic attacks and underlying anxiety disorders including associated depression and phobias.
Anxiety disorders are learned behaviour, fact! Panic attacks cannot exist without an underlying anxiety disorder, that is also fact!
You do not have to live with anxiety or panic attacks and you owe it to yourself to address the problem and start living a normal, full and happy life again.
