Anxiety symptoms – Explained and removed

Anxiety symptoms are not what they appear to be. Understand anxiety symptoms in context.

Commonly, anxiety symptoms are defined as the physical and mental manifestations of ILLNESS… but anxiety disorders aren’t illnesses… so what are these ‘anxiety symptoms’?

We at LTE, have all suffered from anxiety so we truly understand the level of suffering, frustration, despair and disruption anxiety symptoms cause but we also know that when the disorder is removed, the symptoms quickly disappear.

When suffering, it is so difficult to see anything other than the symptoms. They seem so overwhelming and worrying.

Anxiety conditions cause massive disruption within the systems of the human body but none of it is illness or disorder… the body is, actually, doing exactly what it evolved to do. The production of anxiety symptoms has a specific purpose.

Fear is isn’t actually an emotion… unlike emotions like happiness, sadness or anger, for example, which provide a physical and mental experience of external environments, fear is has a specific and unique function… to keep us safe.

Anxiety ‘symptoms’ are caused by the activation of bodily responses in preparation for action… fight or flight. Other anxiety symptoms, such as IBS, muscle pain, dizziness etc. are side-effects of that process.

Does medication remove anxiety disorders or remove symptoms?

In a word… NO. Why? Because to remove the ‘symptoms’ of anxiety is to remove or address the physical responses of FEAR. That is wholly and practically impossible… and who would want to? Fear keeps us safe.

The only solution is to remove the disorder itself… returning disorder to ORDER. Which is what TLM does.

Does ‘therapy’ remove anxiety disorders?

No… it cannot. In fact, talking therapies, including CBT, counselling, hypnosis and psycho-analysis will perpetuate and even worsen the condition.

Why? Because practice makes perfect. By doing the above practices, you are confirming that the anxiety is appropriate. This all happens sub-consciously regardless of what you want or feel. It’s like going on a treadmill and trying to prevent fitness.

The solution is simple, scientific, common sense, fast and so relieving.

Anxiety Recovery

From 1970, maybe even before that, till 1997, I was a sufferer. I experienced a constant sense of impending doom, a sense of frailty, a constant sense that the world would swallow me up… I was terrified most of the time. At school, I was timid, shy, looked sad and didn’t feel part of the crowd. I had chrnoic hayfever, exercise and hayfever related astham and was overweight. I knew I was ‘different’ but what was I supposed to do about it? I had no idea what was wrong with me or that something was wrong with me at all… I just thought that I was feeling what every other lad felt.

People say to me all the time that stating that we provide ‘recovery’ and ‘the cure’ is misinformation because anxiety can’t be cured, it’s an emotion… how wrong they are.

To explain this in simple terms that everyone can understand – “we all need to defecate, but no one needs diarrhoea” – Does that make sense?

Fear is an emotion… anxiety is the inappropriate manifestation of fear. So fear can’t be cured because it’s an important and incurable emotion but anxiety is a ‘disorder’ for want of a better word!

It’s so easy for people to misinterpret the outward symptoms of an anxiety disorder, to align anxiety alongside mental illness, to prescribe medication, to undermine a person’s sense of wellness with talk of ‘anxiety management’ and ‘coping strategies’.

Then there are the resources – CBT, counselling, psychiatry, online forums, charities – which of these provide curative treatments? Which move people out of negative environments, negative thought patterns, negative verbal exchanges? None. They all promote constant, conscious focus on the condition, the dilema they cause and the ‘thoughts’ associated with the conditions… but none switch off the inappropriate fear.

So when clients come to us desperate after years of all these, they are untrusting. They are often disconnected from the concept of change or recovery and they are often at a point where they have moved past desperation and are now resigned to a life of constant fear, medication and symptoms.

I was that person too once.

Since 1997 we have helped so many people to understand that this is not their fate and within days, have shown them that recovery is, not only, possible but also the normal, expected and definite product of the program I developed.

I have never seen someone fail to recover. Never. The only ones who do fail are the ones that don’t do it… but that’s not failure, that’s either disbelief or negativity.

We do all we can to show people the overwhelming evidence that what we do will help them… you’ll find some of that evidence on this website… and if they still doubt us, I suggest they go off and ask any psychologist or psychotherapist working in practice, to show them their evidence for curative outcomes… when they come back to us, we will then help them, secure in the knowledge that they not only believe in us, but will also comply and recover with our assistance.
