Current explanations in the cause and cure of problems involving specific things like extreme nervousness, anxiety; obsessive thinking and compulsive
Yet, after we look closely at these issues we can notice that they aren’t:-
Diseases – They follow may well psychological progression dependant on our life experiences and we are able to map precisely what happened and why, the result it had for us and how this corresponds with our problem.
Mental illness – most of the people with these issues are actually above average intelligence and they are fully aware about what is happening, yet feel powerless to quit it.
Chemical imbalances – Synapses, those connections between your neurons in your brain (around 10,000 for each and every neuron), are tiny spaces which are occupied by chemical messengers called neurotransmitters that carry information between neurons. Serotonin and Dopamine are two neurotransmitters regularly mentioned with regards to anxiety and depression problems and chemical imbalance, usually speaking about deficiencies these neurotransmitters, is frequently proffered being a reason for panic disorders and depression.
Well, anxiety and depression deplete our own bodies of many resources, including: energy, vitamins with out doubt neurotransmitters. Surely, any chemical imbalance could be the result of these issues not the main cause. Balancing chemicals within the brain throughout the action of medicine may alleviate some symptoms into a degree but never touches what causes it.
Curable with drugs – medication conditions a physical level. These complaints are psychological along with the answer is psychological. Whilst short-term medication is a great idea for symptom relief, drugs never touch the actual reason for these complaints. Indeed, the mere act of taking medication can make the actual cause worse.
Due to genes – evolution and our genes impart us with predispositions not fixed behaviours. A way we’re also predisposed to behave due to the right environment. That is, our life experiences. We cannot be programmed with fixed behaviours (eg. OCD or GAD) for for no reason know the environment as well as born into … it would not be adaptive to react with extreme anxiety to unconditional love.
And just remember, these complaints are not ‘disorders’ or irrational – our body and mind are perfectly ordered with what they are attempting to do, so we get them for the best rational reason there’ll ever be ? for the survival.
We can spend a very long time looking for the correct cure for your ‘illness’ – if only we could find the correct pill or method. Unfortunately, by doing this, we have been looking at these complaints in totally the wrong manner.
When we look with the backgrounds of big numbers of those that have anxiety problems, they’re often strikingly similar in several ways. Negative life experiences and subsequent feelings involving self worth and insecurity occur in general with such regularity and therefore are so similar it is hard to discover how they cannot possibly play an essential role in these issues.
The interplay between experiences, thoughts, feelings and deep-seated survival instincts make these issues seem so powerful, that something drastic is wrong around, however the potential to develop anxiety problems lies within people, it’s a part of man’s instinct, and it also only takes the appropriate (or ‘wrong’) list of experiences to take them out.
Given a specific series of events, conditions and circumstances every person in the world can start for being highly nervous, over anxious and insecure for much from the time, because of this behaviour reflects the way in which we all are human beings.
Far from becoming an illness, something strange containing happened to us, or something like that that is wrong around, you can see the best way we develop panic attacks (and depression). They follows could possibly psychological progression according to our life experiences and learning, and we are able to follow step-by-step what exactly happens to us and why.
Events in your lives and the issue they had for us conspire to create anxiety-related problems ? life experiences which have rendered us feel afraid and not able to cope. Not usually single frightening instances (excluding some varieties of PTSD) they more probable develop from general living situations which involve specific things like: constantly being deposit, being ridiculed, being built to feel ashamed, created to feel guilty and meant to feel worthless. When we seem like this often, it’s actually not surprising that anxiety gets control.
And once nervousness and anxiety commence to rule our way of life it’s not well before greater problems, those problems we define as ‘anxiety attacks’ today, commence to take shape.
When we see panic attacks for what they’re: behaviours learned and conditioned as a result of our life experiences, you can really do something about them.
