Anxiety disorders symptoms explained
First of all the word ‘disorder’ suggests illness and anxiety disorders aren’t illnesses. We prefer to call anxiety disorders ‘high anxiety conditions’. They are not born of chemical imbalance or physical damage but of too much of the emotion of fear… nothing more.
It’s easy for sufferers to believe they are ‘ill’ as the symptoms they experience escalate. The symptoms of the ‘anxiety disorders’ can affect every square millimetre of the body and mind, in fact, everywhere that nerves can be found. When a sufferer then seeks out medical guidance, the false belief that they may be ‘ill’ is reinforced by doctors who then prescribe medication or refer them to a psychological practitioner. If you take medication and see a psychologist, chances are you will believe you have a mental illness which requires those treatments. The fact is, that if you have a high anxiety condition, you don’t.
If you woke up tomorrow morning feeling overly happy, laughing and smiling all day… would you consider yourself ill? So why is too much of the emotion of fear ANY DIFFERENT to too much of the emotion of happiness? It’s not. It’s just that we are conditioned to believe that negative emotions and ‘feelings’ mean danger.
You can experience extreme and often painful manifestations of intense pleasure. If you laugh too much it can make your ribs ache, can make you cry, can make you short of breath and dizzy… would you consider yourself ill? No, not at all. But when anxiety strikes and you experience similar, intense, feelings and thoughts, you immediately ‘assume the worst’. But it’s a false truth, one built on false data and feelings. You’re not ill, not mentally or physically.
But anxiety is an emotion, not an illness.

Being anxiety disorder and symptoms free involves a simple process of convincing your subconscious mind that you are SAFE. Once the mind believes the signals you send it, it switches anxiety OFF.
It sounds simple and it IS simple, however, it requires a little knowledge, structure and compliance but within hours you can start to experience the affects as the anxiety withdraws and your symptoms fade. Within days, you will be feeling much, much better.
