“Health Anxiety Is Kept Alive Due To The Fear Of Losing Control Of Our Minds, Bodies, Or Both.”
Health anxiety sufferers consistently play out similar patterns in their day to day lives, with many of those people hoping for a different result. As painful as this challenge is we must get to the point of understanding that replacements of those patterns is crucial.
The Amygdala (the part of our brains responsible for the fear response) must be guided and trained. When the amygdala no longer believes that a perceived threat is in fact near, our symptoms of anxiety lessen and eventually don’t appear at all.
“The key for health anxiety sufferers to re-train their amygdala’s is by putting themselves in situations that they fear.”
