Anxiety Therapy Dealing with Anxiety

You have already experienced anxiety. Each and every single one of us has.

Indeed, anxiety is something that each one of us is certain to have felt, in one form or another, at some time in our lives.

As such, it really is nothing to become alarmed about. In truth, a degree of anxiety can even be beneficial. Occasional feelings of temporary, minor anxiety can push us on, giving us 'the edge'. It can keep us on our toes, allowing us to perform to a greater degree of excellence than we ever could without it.

But habitual and chronic anxiety is completely different.

This kind of anxiety can be overwhelming and truly incapacitating. It can cripple us and even prevent us from functioning normally in otherwise quite ordinary circumstances.

More than this, anxiety can seriously and adversely affect our health.

Chronic anxiety - anxiety experienced on a regular basis over an extended period of time - can have alarming consequences. It can weaken the immune system and lower the body's natural resistance to infection, leaving us prey to all manner of illnesses.

Long periods of anxiety can elevate blood pressure, putting far too much strain on vital organs such as the heart. And anxiety can really increase the possibility of becoming a stroke victim. Digestive problems such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, headaches and skin eruptions can all have their origin in anxiety.

If you are experiencing real anxiety then it really is best to visit your doctor or medical advisor, just to make certain that there are no underlying physical reasons for this. Once physical reasons have been eliminated, you are left with the decision of what course of action to take.

Usually, the medical response is to prescribe pharmaceuticals. Drugs such as SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) or tranquilizers are offered in order to cope with the symptoms.

But these powerful drugs can have serious adverse side effects for some people.

Another popular approach is to undergo a course of CBT - cognitive behavioural therapy. This 'talking therapy' is intended to help the sufferer cope with the symptoms of anxiety. Its goal is to help the individual develop strategies for managing the symptoms of anxiety.

Yet it is important to realize and understand that anxiety is a feeling generated by the subconscious mind. It is based in the belief that something negative is about to happen.

And so it is to the subconscious mind that we may best turn in order to find a lasting solution to the problem.

And this is exactly what good hypnotherapy does. In hypnosis, we can realign the subconscious mind with reality, allowing it to become calm and more relaxed, to rapidly stop the alert process that is incorrectly functioning and producing those anxious feelings.

No-one was born to feel anxious. With modern advanced hypnotherapy, you can let go of those terrible, anxious feelings, simply stopping them just as soon as they start.
