How to beat Anxiety, Panic and Trauma I have been working clinically with anxiety disorders, panic, trauma and depression for over 30 years. One idea my new clients struggle with is that, because they suffer from high levels of anxiety, they are weak or defective. At the upper end of the anxiety scale in panic disorders, OCD or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) this idea is accentuated dramatically. It’s not true. You are not weak in any way. It’s just that your mind under the circumstances in which it has found itself is using anxiety as a protective mechanism! Anxiety disorder begin as an unconscious reaction to a stressor or a stress inducing event. That event creates changes to the body's biochemistry. The adrenal system pumps adrenaline into the body as part of the "flight or fight" response. Blood sugar levels are raised and other components of our brain chemistry change. If this continues for long more changes occur that can become permanent for long term sufferers, producing a wide range of symptoms including: · Low energy levels · Foggy thinking · Mood swings · Intrusive thought patterns · Low level hallucinations · Unsteady on feet · Cravings for sweet foods or alcohol It is not unusual to start thinking you are losing your mind. Couple anxiety with any kind of trauma and we often see clients with what is often termed schizo-effective disorder or schizophrenia. Often the traditional models will tell you the condition is permanent and can only be dealt with by using drugs. In any event you are not weak or defective in any way. It is important under such circumstances that you deal with both the physiological and biochemical changes prior to or at the same time as the original stressors that have caused the problem. The orthomolecular approach to mental health began with the work of pioneers like Linus Pauling, Abram Hoffer, Carl Pfeiffer and others. Essentially orthomolecular medicine means that "optimum" doses of nutrients are used, in conjunction with other components of treatment, to force the body to function as it should. Dietary modification is also suggested to eliminate the damaging role of sugars and processed grains. Whilst the field is too broad to cover in this introduction, there is ample background information available to explain it in full. Anxiety in itself can be disturbing. It often makes life difficult and tiring. When it is coupled with depression and other physical side effects life often seems impossible or unbearable. The basis of the anxiety,panic or trauma can be readily dealt with once the biochemical influences are dealt with. Developed over 30 years of clinical practice the suggestive therapy techniques that have evolved out of clinical hypnotherapy are rapid, precise and painless.

You do not need to relive the original traumas over and over again. Often the most disturbing components of anxiety and panic are resolved within a couple of hours, never to return. Not yet found in the mainstream of mental health, these techniques are powerful, allowing the unconscious mind that caused the problem in the first place to take on new strategies quickly and permanently.
