Here’s what I See; I see most of the 40 million people in the U.S. alone who will be impaired by some kind of anxiety disorder this year, headed down a road of laziness and ‘instant result syndrome.’ ‘What’s the worst that can happen’ I thought to myself as I began my journey on Xanax and Clonazepam only a few years back. My family doctor as well as the emergency room doctors prescribed them during my first panic attacks, so it must be the right choice right?
As I write this post i’m constantly thinking of my grandmother. She was diagnosed with breast cancer 25 years back, she’s a chronic smoker, and suffers from migraines. Incredibly, she’s never popped a pill for her migraines and has never done any kind of chemotherapy. Her reply to my question of why she’s never headed down the road of first line therapies is ‘professionals don’t want you to do your homework about these conditions, simply take their advice and shut up.’ She definitely did her homework and so should we when we embark on a path to stopping our anxiety disorder naturally.
Here’s What I’ve Learned About Anxiety And Panic Disorder
There is no magic cure in the form of a pill, there is only temporary relief. But once you’ve medicated yourself there is a certain conditioning that has entered your mind. The kind of conditioning that doesn’t want to take the time to learn about the anxiety condition, the kind of condition that doesn’t want to put in the daily effort to use CBT to restructure our thoughts and actions.
Anti Anxiety Medications And Antidepressants Induce Laziness
My message to you the anxiety and panic attack sufferer is straightforward, get off the meds or don’t start them at all. Look at recovery from anxiety as a long term commitment (even though i’ve seen results in people in the short term), don’t evaluate how each day is going instead feel good in knowing you’re on a natural path to stopping your anxiety. Find a mentor, one who has stopped their anxiety naturally and begin asking questions to them online through an email (they are more then happy to help you).
That was brash i’m sorry, but it’s true. If you’re dealing with anxiety 24/7 you’re so caught up in ‘checking in’ on your symptoms of anxiety, and wondering where your anxiety will take you next that you literally don’t even know what you’re putting in your body anymore. Begin a natural cleanse that will get rid of all the harmful toxins and chemicals in your body starting today. Take care of the root of the problem instead of the symptom, if you need a proper guide on how to do this pick up the complete nutrition plan for stress and anxiety.
So to you the one dealing with anxiety I don’t say good luck, but instead I say GET NATURAL and take back control of your anxiety and your life!
