An Educational Initiative on non-pharmacological treatment and correction of Anxiety Dis-orders.

117.M people in America suffer with Anxiety disorder, and currently the medical & mental health establishment believes only medications, many of them addictive is the cure! It is NOT, they are merely be a bridge to amend, to calm the horrid symptoms, but the 'cure' is seeking a qualified clinical counseling hypnotherapist to deal and clear the root/core issue at the subconscious levels of mind activity, where habituation arises, and literally straighten the 'kink', permanently.

Not all people have sustained anxiety, most people will have in the least an episode in their life time, then there are others in which Anxiety Disorder is situational, such as having to give a presentation or report to your colleagues, Public speaking anxiety is the number one leading situational anxiety dealt with, so it is only upon those circumstances it rears it's ugly head. So, 117m American's dealing and/or suffering encompasses all of the manifestations of anxiety disorders from Situational, General (being uncomfortable in your own skin) OCD, PTS &D, Panic attacks, Agoraphobia, Eating disorders (body dysmorphia) Phobias, some Depressive disorders, Addictions (often self regulating/medicating)... to name the majority of underlying anxiety and anxiety dis-orders.

There are currently 27 drugs in the market and 600 being designed by drug manufactures...and these but deal with the SYMPTOMS, not the underlying core/root issues. There are reliable, effective, non drug treatment to deal, clear and relieve Anxiety Disorder. Is this what we want, 117.M people medicated? Not says I, with a qualified clinical hypnotherapist the disorder can be Eradicated, Corrected, Relieved... really, I do it every day in my practice. Every Day.

It is time to educate Doctors, Healthcare Practitioners, all level of mental/ healthcare providers on Anxiety/Panic disorders, as well as the public.

  • Jan 14 2013: Lawren, as a clinical counseling hypnotherapist, I have specialized in anxiety disorders for over 20 years and have helped people correct the dis-order. I hyphenate "disorder" because it is an issue of incorrect thinking that initiate the fight/flight response. By using cognitive therapy techniques and hypnotherapy it effectively corrects it.

    I do have an agenda, the eradication of anxiety and panic attacks. To educate people such as yourself who may have undergone a slew of treatments from medicines to perhaps psychotherapy with little results. Lawren, if you have a heart condition, you will not seek out a podiatrist, you would seek the consult and expertise of a cardiologist. Same situation here. With anxiety issues, you would seek out a specialist in this area, such as myself.

    I suggest you educate yourself on CBT & hypnotherapy, and reclaim your life back. The chemical imbalance you speak of is the adrenaline release and subsequent fear of the symptoms in an ugly cycle that occurs is the true imbalance. With proper consult training and correct at the subconscious level one can not only receive relief, but complete control.

    The hypnosis attribute goes into the subconscious where the core or root issue exists. All of your habitual behavior is at the subconscious level, such as driving. When you get into your vehicle, you d not have to remember how to drive, you simply stick the key into the ignition and go about your way. The subconscious is that portion of the mind that allows us to smoothly operate in the world. When one has repeated anxiety attacks, in becomes for intents and purposes a habitual response of fear.

    I hope this broadens your understanding and the threshold of gaining your life back now that you know what specific approach to correct your anxiety. Best regards, Kate
