Panic and anxiety are very common emotions amongst a great many people.
It is debilitating and can severely impact the quality of their lives and their relationships.

Panic and anxiety are very uncomfortable and always leaves the sufferer shaky, uncertain, afraid and very insecure.

They never know when an attack is going to occur, so, instead of enjoying their days, they are left with the fear of having an attack at an inopportune or inconvenient time, consequently they begin to limit their activities. This concern simply feeds the already debilitating condition and they are left in a vicious circle of doubt and worry which affects everything they do whether at work or socially.

In broad generalities panic and anxiety occur as a result of placing all one’s emotions in the body and they are unable to detach from them in a mental way, so that every unexpected twinge or sensation leaves them worried for their physical welfare. Another reason is that they are not giving their body enough protein. Protein breaks down to the sugar that the brain needs in a slower and more even way than does the sugar in carbohydrates. In some cases the feeling of panic and anxiety are created as the brain is looking for sugar and can’t find any, so, a panic attack sets in creating an adrenaline rush which then gives the brain what it needs.

In most cases people will attach a thought or an action or a scary event to the feeling of panic and, as a result will stop doing whatever they were doing when the attack hit, believing that the attack was as a result of whatever they were doing at the time.

Panic and anxiety although debilitating to the sufferer is generally very easy to “fix”. Once the person has an understanding of how these attacks are created and understands the mechanism by which they are created, this knowledge will allow their attacks to begin to ease and finally disappear for good.

Most people remember when they had their first attack and what they were doing when it occurred, and this is a great key in assisting a sufferer to a quick recovery.

Once they understand that it was not what they were doing at the time that created the attack and that they will not die as a result of an attack (though it certainly feels as if they will with the shortness of breath the rapid heart beat the sweating and nervousness), that there is a dietary solution combined with “box” breathing and desensitization techniques taught while in Hypnosis, to help them regain control, the attacks lessen and in most cases becomes a thing of the past.

Box breathing is a very simple and effective way to deal with an attack. Some of the dizziness and out of control feeling comes from the body breathing in too much oxygen; so, to regulate this the sufferer must begin to “box” breath.
Box breathing, is simple and effective, try it.

Start out with a count of three, in some cases if that is too much start with a count of 2. Here is an example using a count of 4.

1) Breathe in 2,3,4.
2) Hold your breath 2,3,4
3) Breathe out 2,3,4
4) Hold your breath 2,3,4

As your control returns take your count to 5 then 6 etc. The box breathing regulates the oxygen and carbon dioxide input and output, the mind becomes occupied with the concentration on the counting, the attack eases, goes away and you are left calm and relaxed in a much quicker time than you had thought possible.

Hypnotherapy is extremely useful in assisting a sufferer to rid themselves of these attacks as, not only will the Hypnotherapist offer a protein based diet, the Hypnotherapist will be able to help you to regain control while in Hypnosis, by having the sufferer create and then lessen an attack.

While in Hypnosis, an attack is created on command by the sufferer and also controlled, eased and ended by the sufferer. Once they realize in the safe state created by Hypnosis that they really have the control of the attack, that they themselves are creating it, that they themselves have the power to stop it, a process of desensitization begins guided by the Hypnotherapist, so that the attacks begin to ease in frequency and ultimately will go away completely.

Once the attacks reduce in frequency they may on occasion reoccur, but most importantly the sufferer now has all the tools and a complete understanding of what the attack is, how it is created and how to stop it which will allow them to forget the attacks and begin a far more productive and a less anxious life.

I personally suffered from debilitating attacks for many years, and it was only when I trained to become a Hypnotherapist that a solution was offered. Up until then I had been given Valium or Xanax which simply masked the symptoms and, unfortunately for me they had a severe effect on my personality to the extent that the attacks were preferable to the change in personality created by the medication which was supposed to “cure” me.

As part of my training I was to undergo Hypnotherapy sessions so that I, as a new Hypnotherapist, would understand what it was like to be on the receiving end of Hypnotherapy sessions so that I would clearly understand what any future clients of mine would go through, so, I opted to use these sessions to resolve these attacks. After 3 sessions my attacks were pretty much gone, and on the rare occasion that an attack began, I knew what it was, why it was happening and used the tools that I had been taught to eliminate the attack within 30 seconds.

My life changed completely.
