TAGP 68: Turning Your PANIC Switch Off

June 12, 2017

how to stop panic attacks“Is It Possible To Re-program Your Brain To Understand What’s A Real Threat And What’s Not? Sure, Why Not.”

Remember that first full blown panic attack you had? What a bewildering experience. All your sensations heightened, your mind running wild like a wild goose chase, and minutes felt like hours.

Quickly you begin thinking this is the one, this is the one that will end your life. How could it not? It feels so real!

“With Every New Full Blown Panic Attack A Sufferer Believes It To Be A Heart Attack, And Responds Accordingly In That Moment.”

Life after a full blown panic attack feels like a saber toothed tiger looking to pounce on you at any moment. The sensitivity to light, words, events, anything can be enough to lock ourselves in our comfort zones for days, weeks, months, years!

I know I did. 31 days to be exact in my home only stepping foot outside to take a breath of air once in a while. But all this fear stops today.

In this episode of the anxiety guy podcast I want to show you the truth behind this part of your brain called the amygdala that is running the panic show right now.

“By understanding panic we can train the amygdala to understand what is a real threat and what is a perceived threat.”

So if you’re currently going through a panicky chapter in your life, and fear the next big panic attack, this podcast episode is for you.

In Episode #68 Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast We Look Into:

  • What the function of the amygdala is
  • Why we experience these attacks out of the blue
  • The best way to learn from every full blown episode
