Panic attacks and anxiety are a natural part of who we are as human beings. And a certain amount of anxiety may be a good thing – to help ensure that we do our very best at whatever task we wish to achieve. Most of us can cope with a normal amount of anxiety and lead perfectly normal lives.
However, for some people, the anxiety can increase to unnaturally high levels, and the panicky feelings can increase in intensity and become overwhelming. The typical medical response is the prescription of anti-anxiety medication (Xanax, Valium, etc). While medication may be completely appropriate in the short term, is it really the solution to the underlying emotional cause of panic attacks and anxiety?
Why Do Panic Attacks And Anxiety Happen?
Anxiety and panic attacks exist for a reason. They are automatic responses created by our subconscious minds to make us sit up and take notice that there are underlying emotional reasons that need sorting out.
Types Of Anxiety
Severe anxiety disorder can take many forms, and individuals may experience high levels of anxiety that persist for hours or even days at a time. Other anxiety sufferers have brief episodes of intense and acute anxiety or a feeling of panic that comes on quickly and lasts for only a few minutes, commonly referred to as a “panic attack”. The main types of anxiety are
- Panic Disorder (Panic Attacks)
- Generalised Anxiety Disorder
- Atypical Anxiety Disorder
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Phobic Disorders
- Simple Phobia
- Social Phobia
Symptoms Of Anxiety
Symptoms of an anxiety attack or panic attack might include heart palpitations, sweaty palms, shortness of breath, pressure in chest, feeling like choking, spasms and tremors, weakness in your legs, frozen limbs, generalised sweating, light headedness, nausea and fainting — and in extreme cases, the feeling that one is about to die. Needless to say, such affects can be terrifying and truly debilitating, often causing major re-arrangement of the individual’s life and life-style. Depression is often associated with anxiety and panic attacks that have lasted for any period of time.
Analytical Hypnotherapy Can Help
Through the use of the deeply relaxed state of hypnosis, it is much easier to find those root causes of your anxiety. Many people discover that root cause to be some traumatic event that happened earlier in their lives, possibly even as far back as childhood in some cases. This event could have caused the person to experience fear. Later on, that fear becomes “generalised” to other events, or triggered by other things. Once we find and deal with the root causes of your anxiety or panic attack, then those symtoms can, in many cases, fade away completely because there is nothing now driving them.
