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.

Panic Attack Symptoms

Panic Attack Symptoms in Day and Night Time Panic Attacks

The physical and psychological experiences during a panic attack can seem catastrophic and life threatening, but they are not; in fact, quite the opposite… they are part of a response that keeps you safe.

These physical and psychological experiences include

(this is not an exhaustive list of panic attack symptoms)…

  • Shortness of breath or smothering sensations
  • Racing heart or palpitations
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling faint
  • Pins and needles in limbs
  • Urgency to go to the toilet
  • Chest pains
  • Neck, shoulder and/or head pains
  • Shaky legs / muscle weakness
  • Shivering or shaking
  • Sweating – cold or hot sweats
  • Disturbed hearing or vision
  • Skin blanching (turning pale)
  • Catastrophic / inappropriate thoughts
  • Nausea / diarrhoea / indigestion
  • … and more

Despite feeling dreadful, panic attack symptoms are manifested during the anxiety response and are not the sign of anything more. Panic attacks are normal and natural bodily responses to the release of too much adrenalin during an anxiety disorder.

Many clients come to us suffering with between 1 and 20 panic attacks each day and often, also, during the night. Nightime panic attacks are often referred to as ‘night frights’ – again, whilst alarming at the time, these are also completely harmless.

Panic attacks can be stopped quickly when the sufferer gains the knowledge and technique required to turn them off within the part of the mind responsible for producing the emotion of fear and anxiety disorders.

Is panic attacks recovery simple?

Like all bodily systems, the emotions are controlled ‘autonomously’ – outside of your conscious control… just like your breathing, digestion and blood flow… it all happens whether you are asleep or awake and cannot me changed by medication or talking therapies.

You know that no matter how you reason with your panic attacks or how much medication you take, the anxiety and panic is ever present, untouched and waiting to activate.

The science behind this is very simple indeed. In the same way as you can’t stop digesting your food… you cannot consciously stop a panic attack from activating.

BUT… you can stop the anxiety that causes them! Within hours, you can command the subconscious part of your mind that manages all these systems to deactivate anxiety, returning you to NORMAL fear responses.

Having doen this, you will never experience inappropriate levels of anxiety or panic attacks again.

Panic attacks symptoms are mind fiction… they are not based on TRUE threat… they are not harmful… they are not representative of your health.
