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 15 2013: Not familiar with blogs Fritzie, but from the tone of your note, my responses are too long.
    Yes, admittedly I added an outline as to the nature of anxiety/panic issues, and a approach to the correction of the dis-order.

    I appreciate your insight and suggestions. I shall take them into consideration.
    As what you say tends to be true in many instances, those whom deal with these issues proverbial ears may as well perk up, and we can move into a deeper, insightful and educative conversation.

    I believe in one of the earlier threads I mentioned my intention of the Educational Initiative, which is people being correctly diagnosed and thus referred to clinicians/disciplines which specialize in treatment/correction of anxiety.

    People spend years of their lives attempting to gain help, proper treatment. They become entrenched in a system quite often that does not understand anxiety dis-orders and can spend those years being medicated without successful abatement of the horrific, often disabling symptoms. And this is also my main contention and assertion that meds merely mask, not correct anxiety, intensifying an otherwise simple dis-order to correct.
    Warmest regards, Kate
